Heartfelt Gifts for Mom Back to Event Details
Top off your tasty brunch with homemade presents prepared by the whole family. Surprise Mom the day before with a rejuvenating spa and pedicure at the local spa. Use the time she's gone to assemble gifts. Here are some suggestions:
- Dress up a plain wooden tray with a coat of paint in her favorite color. Allow to dry. Then line the bottom of the tray with coordinating fabric and cover the fabric with a snug-fitting piece of glass. (You'll find the glass in the framing department of art supply stores.) You can arrange presents on the tray; afterwards Mom can use the tray to corral jewelry.
- Involve the entire family in making handmade cards. Have Dad cut and fold card stock (or purchase ready-made blank cards) for each family member to color and embellish with strips of paper and ribbon. Finish with personal messages to Mom.
- Design custom stationery: Round up the little ones and have them draw special pictures for Mom. Scan the artwork, scale it down and print it on card stock.
- Create personalized gift boxes by wrapping boxes and lids in coordinating papers. While Dad places photos into small metal frames (found at scrapbooking stores) and glues a frame onto one side of each box, kids can draw their own pictures for Mom directly on the boxes.
