mother’s day ideas

mother’s day ideas

I’ve gathered some ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day from all over. There are treats, crafts and even a Silpat giveaway with a $100 gift certificate to Sur La Table! Plus, make sure you go all the way to the end of the post for some free printables for Mother’s day!


How about making Mom a bouquet of edible and beautiful prim rose cookies? The Blossomedge blog teaches you how to create them and even kids can do it!

Mom, Share Your Life With Me and Grandma, Tell Me Your Memories are two hardbound journals that would be an ideal keepsake for moms and grandmas to pass down to their children and grandchildren. Both of the volumes have a specific question for each day of the year. The year is not specified, which allows for them to start journaling at any time of the year. I think the prompts were fun and insightful, like “Did you ever have an imaginary friend?” or “Describe your childhood home.” These books make it very easy to record memories and personal stories for family members — what could be a better gift?


I love how Bakerella repurposed her leftover Easter candy into these adorable cake pops for Mom.


These tile coasters from The Cottage Home would make such a lovely gift for Mom!

Here is a pop up floral card from Martha Stewart – gorgeous!

Children might enjoy making a special flower pot for mom to put all the flowers they pick for her.


If you want to get something amazing for Mom, Williams Sonoma sells this Flower Pot Cake that is completely edible.


Oh Sugar Event Planning made some beautiful cookies for Mom. I love her tiny white flowers, so cute!

Tom’s has some comfy shoes that are perfect for Mother’s Day.

The Cupcake Blog has lots of wonderful ideas for Mother’s Day including the two beautiful cupcakes above.
