mother's day

It’s Mother’s Day in the USA on Sunday, May 14, 2023. With that in mind, we share a few different ideas for gifts to show your love and appreciation this Mother’s Day.

Show your mother how much you love and appreciate her this Mother’s Day, with one of these interesting and unusual gift ideas.

#1. Send a letter

A handwritten note is a wonderful gift and a truly personal way to show your appreciation. Let your mother know exactly what she means to you, the things you appreciate, and how grateful you are. For little ones, you can find templates to help you get started online. As encouragement, why not be inspired by our blog about the enduring joy found in writing or receiving a love letter.

#2. Compile a heritage cookbook

Every family has its favorite recipes and traditional meals that mean so much. Why not compile some of your family’s favorites into a special keepsake book that your mother can treasure forever? You could use a plain journal to collect and handwrite recipes. Or you can find services online that make it easy to compile really professional recipe books which will then be printed and sent out to you.

#3. Make a bunch of roses

Flowers are wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day, but why not give a bouquet that will last and last? You can find many tutorials for making paper flowers online, but we love these instructions to print out and make a bunch of paper roses. These roses look realistic because they use paper that’s been printed on both sides with the same

pretty design. This isn’t special craft paper you’ll need to buy: it’s plain old paper that you can print our designs on using your home printer. Find the full instructions here.

#4. Create a photo montage

Photos make great gifts. Whether it’s a photo book, a single frame filled with a montage of photos through the years, or a collection of coordinating frames filled with beloved images to make a photo wall, cherished family photographs always make for a wonderful and thoughtful gift. Plus, it’s fun to look back through all your old archives and pull a unique collection together for Mom!

#5. Dedicate a tree

The UK’s Woodland Trust invites you to dedicate a tree. Tell the charity the reason for your dedication, then select a wood and how you would like to dedicate – from single trees, to larger areas of woodland with personalized benches and marker posts.

Finally, make it truly special with your own message. Individual trees have a suggested donation £20 or areas of woodland from £250 for a quarter of an acre upwards. A bench or marker post with a personalized plaque, starts from £1,500 to £3,000.
