Moms work so hard to keep it all together. Treat her this year!

So, make your Mom feel special…she deserves it

DIY Mother’s Day Presents:

When your family maintains a hectic schedule, life seems to pass by really quickly. Busy moms appreciate great mothers day gifts that come from the heart. These can also be diy gifts that kids can give to mom.

Consider crafting some inexpensive mother’s day gifts that will be cherished for years and years to come.

Compile some great family photos, scrapbook paper, decorations, stickers and mementos along with a new scrapbook as one of her Mothers day presents this year. You can also get a box to gather your favorite pictures & memories of your mom.

Be sure to let her know that you would like to create new memories as you build this scrapbook/box together. This is a great way to show her how you care and do something meaningful together.

  • Make a book about mom

Buy a book or complete a book of short messages that talk about all of the things that you love about Mom. If your child is younger, they can draw on each page – that is meaningful to mom!

Or, even add a bit of humor here and there. These make great mothers day gifts as well as memories for years to come. You can buy a blank book at a local craft store or buy blank books online.

  • Craft a family cookbook

If your mom if a collector of recipes and she has a stash somewhere you can compile them into a family cookbook so she can have them all in one place. These inexpensive mother’s day gifts also make it easier to share for future generations.

  • Put together a family calendar featuring you

You can create a personalized calendar with photos of your family or memories that you want to see throughout the year. Shutterfly has some fun options for mother’s day present ideas. You can choose the design, color, photo and even write your own text. They carry some other great customizable photo gifts as well.

  • Decorate a ceramic “I love Mom” mug

Take some time to create something truly special for mom by visiting a local ceramic painting shop and decorating an “I love Mom” mug that she can cherish each time she drinks from it. Handmade treasures make the best Mother’s Day gifts.

  • If Mom loves coffee, get her a subscription!

For that coffee drinker, consider a subscription. If she loves a specific flavor or just likes a little variety in her morning beverage, you can find something for her.

Boca Java has a tasty subscription service with fun themes that can be delivered to your home. The coffee is low cost with a variety of flavors. My favorite is The Gilmore Girls line and they have accessories to go along with your coffee!

  • Create a Milestone Blanket

For Mom’s with an infant you can make or buy a milestone blanket where she can store mementos of her little one’s first year. You can use it as a photo prop to commemorate their growth or achievements.

Each month you could even sew on a little memento. If you are more creative, you could also make or sew a quilt. You can even find seamstresses to sew the quilt of memories too!

Experience Gift Ideas:

Moms love doing fun, out-of-the-box activities with their kids. Experience gifts make great mothers presents for families to create memories together.

Consider giving the gift of “A Day Out With Mom” that the whole family can enjoy.

  • Family Friendly Escape Room

Take the whole family to the brand new Escape Artist for an afternoon of games and fun.

  • Spend the day at the Museum

Take some time exploring some of Kansas City’s best museums including the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the National World War I Museum and Liberty Memorial.

  • Monkey Around at the Zoo

The Kansas City Zoo hosts families each year on Mother’s Day and spending your day at the zoo is a great way to get in some extra family bonding.

  • Take a Cooking Class with Mom.

Or, take a class before & test your newly found skills by cooking dinner at home. This will make for one of the best Mother’s Day gifts this year. There are great cooking class options in Lee’s Summit & Leawood!
