1 – DIY Mother’s Day Cards + Envelope
Nothing can beat a handmade card with a personal note inside, don’t you think?
My Mums greatest hobby is writing postcards and letters to friends and family.
I can remember a time (as those dang hormones made me a super cranky teenager) when I totally hated it that she made me send a gazillion postcards whenever we were on vacation.
Now, as a grown-up, I can see all the LOVE in this process: It makes her happy to send the cards and it makes us happy to receive them and even respond. As this makes her happy again, lol. See?
Sending one postcard can create a cycle of happiness

It’s always a great gift idea to make something by yourself, with your own hands. This will show your Mother that you truly care!

Take Your Mom on a Staycation
My Mum and I share the love for musicals, a good show or the circus. You could plan a fun night out together and to top things off, you could book a hotel for the night.
Wouldn’t it be great to reside in a darling little hotel after a fun night in the city? Sipping cocktails at the bar and chatting before a good nights sleep and a wonderful breakfast together. Ahhhh that sounds like BLISS!
Book a Staycation Now & Save $15:
I’ve booked the hotels for my last trip to London (to get my flower tattoo on my right arm) and to Dublin, this March (mostly I’m traveling over my birthday) over at booking.com and have been suuuuuper happy with my finds.
Have you ever tried that booking platform? I scored excellent prices, even for a staycation in Munich this spring, that I kinda booked very much last minute.
Gosh, this post is long. Too much personal info? Basically, what I am trying to say with all that is, another Mother’s Day gift idea could be for you to book a staycation today + save another $15 on top of any special offer when using this link: booking.com.
Dress your Mom in Style
My Mum is a very special person. She has managed to preserve her inner child and I love her all the more for that fact! My Mum loves to dress in comfy sweatshirts and bright colors. She doesn’t do make-up and is a very natural person.
I often make her unique t-shirts and sweatshirts to match her personality and she wears them all the time!! ?
Last year, I made her this sweatshirt reading Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life. and I am now selling it on Merch by Amazon. It’s my first t-shirt design I’ve made available for my readers to purchase.
Please, tell me if you like it and would love to see more!
I know for a fact that this Less Bitter, More Glitter Shirt by my friend Pam from P. S. I Love You Crafts was made with the same love at heart as I make the shirts and sweaters for my Mum. And as all Mothers strive for harmony & happiness I am totally convinced that your Mum will absolutely adore this! Order it today.
I don’t know about your Mother, but mine will always make sure everyone else has everything they need before she invests one Cent on herself.
The other weekend she asked me if I could help her find a certain channel on her TV. I tried but even if I were a rocket scientist it wouldn’t have been possible as her super old box TV simply won’t support that channel.
My Mum would rather not watch that channel instead of buying a new TV because “this one is working perfectly fine”. So I simply went online and found her a new TV that was also on sale. And guess what, she likes it a lot!
If your Mum’s TV is just fine, think about other possibilities to up her electronics game:
