Mother’s Day is sneaking up on me quickly, so this week I am taking the time to get some gifts ordered! I don’t want to give them a card that gets thrown away, knick knacks they feel obligated to display, or something cheap and plastic made with poor labor practices so this year I am turning to Etsy to buy handmade.
There are SO many artisans, and SO many products on Etsy it can be overwhelming, so today I am sharing some of my favorite finds that would make great Mother’s Day gifts.
These Skinny MINI Personalized Bar Necklaces are so cute and on trend, and can be completely customized. You can choose the color of metal, length of the chain, what you want engraved, and whether the engraving is centered or justified to the left or right. These would be great personalized with children’s names, a nickname, of even just Mom. These are reasonably priced, so you could do a necklace for each child if you wanted to! This shop is full of beautiful, customizable pieces, so make sure you check it ou
Is your mom a reader? These Wooden Book Buddies are so clever and unique, and will help your mom read in comfort. You can choose the color of wood and the size of thumb hole. I had never seen anything like this! It would make a great companion gift to a new book.
Another unique gift for the book lover is this personalized bookmark. As an avid reader myself I can vouch for the fact that one can never have too many bookmarks! I’m constantly scrounging for something to keep my place in my latest read, and these bookmarks are so cute and thoughtful I would love to receive one!
This is one of my favorite choices for a Mother’s Day gift – personalized stationery. I love having personalized stationery on hadn’t to write a quick note to a friend, or even a thank you card. Not much makes you feel like you are killing adulthood like having personalized stationery. I love this set from LemonGrace on Etsy. It is so elegant and classic, but with a modern and cute twist. I would love to receive a gift like this!
Mother’s Day isn’t a happy day of remembrance for everyone. If there is someone in your life who is going to be reminded of a loss on this day, I think this bracelet is a lovely gift to let them know that you are thinking of them. Unfortunately seeing social media posts of happy mothers and families can feel like a stab of pain for many, and they are often overlooked.
Some kids are furry … I have 3 human children, but my dogs are my babies! If you know a furry mom who deserves a treat, check out this adorable mug! You might want to bookmark this one for Father’s Day, because dog dad’s are just as crazy about their fur balls as their female counterparts.
Crepe Paper Flowers
Flowers are the stereotypical Mother’s Day gift, but I hate spending the money on something that will die in a few days plus I’m allergic. These flowers are so beautiful it’s hard to believe they are made from crepe paper!
I’m currently obsessed with all things marble. These coasters are amazing, and I love that you can choose how many you want included in your set! Plus they ship free!
