Homemade Gift Ideas For Mom On Mother's Day

Updated on April 27, 2009

Mother's Day

Mother's day is a special day for all moms. It's a day that they all deserve!

A gift for mom on mother's day doesn't have to be store bought, remember the old saying; "it's the thought that counts." Especially when it's a gift for your mom. Most mothers don't even care what they get for mother's day they just want recognition!

Mother's Day

Breakfast In Bed

To start mom's day off right, make her breakfast before she gets up and surprise her in bed!

Doesn't have to be anything big, simple eggs and bacon or whatever.

She's gonna love you when she opens her eyes and sees you holding a tray of food for her!

A Card

Start with a mother's day card.

Anyone can go out and buy a simple card, but it takes time and love to create a hand written card!

Make it her favorite color, maybe put a picture of her favorite thing on it, and of course write a personal message inside for her.

Any mom will love a handmade card!

A Poem

Another heart filled mother's day gift is a poem written just for her. You can even write your poem inside your card!

Remember a poem doesn't have to rhyme.

A well written mother's day poem will bring a tear to her eye!


Any mom will enjoy a special massage from their kid, it's a simple thank you for being my mom!

Picture Frame

Make mom a picture frame for mother's day and put a picture of her kids, family, pets, or whatever she loves.

You can make a nice wooden frame if you have the tools, or be a little more creative!

You can make a picture frame with just about anything. Try making one with clay, pencils, cardboard, rulers, a coat hanger, buttons, yarn, macaroni, or anything you can come up with. Be creative, try use something that will have a significant meaning to your mother.


A cake is a given for any holiday, but once again don't buy it at a store...

Make mom her favorite kind of cake by hand! 

You can buy some frosting to write on the cake with, and add a special message for mother.

As with the card, this is a much more thoughtful way to give mom something for mother's day. She'll really appreciate it!


Get together as many pictures as you can that will mean a lot to your mother. Include pictures of pets, children, family, etc.

Make a nice collage for mom.

Note that you may want to make copies of the pictures to use in case mom wants the originals.

This is another thoughtful gift for a special mom.


Make a nice birdhouse in mom's favorite color. 

You can draw up directions and get the wood at home depot, or you can probably find a kit that includes everything you need.

Here's a nice tip; make the top of the birdhouse open or come off and write a "happy mother's day" message inside the bird house!

Wind Chime

Try making mother a nice wind chime using something special to her.

My mom loves the beach so one year I made her a wind chime out of beach shells. She loved it!

You can try making one with; shells, bells, CDs, cans, bottles, beads, or whatever mom will enjoy.


What mother wouldn't like a nice handmade necklace?

A necklace doesn't have to be gold or sterling it can be made with some of the following; beads, string, yarn, coins, clay, noodles, and more!

Put some thought into this one, be creative!


These are all great ideas for homemade mother's day gifts.

You don't have to spend a lot of money to impress your mom, and you don't have to go all out. When you get down to it, it really is the thought that counts!

Your mom will love anything you put your heart into!
