Gifts With Heart by Marie Nichols

Let’s face it who wouldn’t love a gorgeous new snuggly robe or new beautiful linen to rest a weary head upon at the end of a long day? It’s a given! But this Mother’s day here are a few simple ideas that will add that extra special personal touch to gifts that Mums will instantly cherish and are virtually cost free…

Create a chalkboard tray

Serve an extra special breakfast in bed with your own personalized message to Mum. Mask off the inside of the tray and paint using blackboard paint. Once the paint is dry chalk on your message, and get the kettle on!

Hand Picked Bouquet

A few daffodils and tulips picked from the garden can be bulked out with foraged foliage or in expensive fillers such as Wax Flower or Gypsophila from the florist.

Wrap in tissue or brown paper and finish with a cute personalized tag.

Mum Tag

To make a tag roll out air drying clay to approx 5mm thick, use a cookie cutter to cut out a heart shape. Make the hole to thread ribbon through by “punching out” the clay with the end of a drinking straw .You can create a pretty embossed design by pushing lace into the wet clay. Then use stamp to write your message and leave to dry.

Fill A Jar With Love

Cut strips of paper and ask the children to write down (or you write for them if they’re very little) one thing that they love about their Mum on each piece of paper. Fold them up and pop them in a Jar labeled “We love Mum because…” A jar full of sweet sentiments that are sure to put a smile on every mum’s face and be treasured forever.

Mother’s Day Tokens

We don’t know any Mum that would turn down the offer of a Lie-In; a lovely (child Free) soak in the Tub or somebody else offering to do the dishes, so spoil Mum with promises of little acts of thoughtfulness that will make her very happy indeed.
