TOP 10 HOMEMADE MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS & IDEAS
Falling on Sunday 14th March this year, Mother’s Day is a fantastic chance to spoil the special ladies in our lives! We may still face 2021’s Mother’s Day in lockdown, but our top 10 ideas of homemade Mother’s Day gifts and celebrations are sure to make mums, step-mums and grandmas feel extra special regardless!
From turning children’s’ artwork into unique gifts, and coming up with special ways to celebrate Mother’s Day from home, if you are wondering how to celebrate Mother's Day this year, take a peek at our round-up of the best gifts and ideas below…
1 - BREAKFAST IN BED
From crumpets to croissants, having breakfast from the comfort of her bed will be a mega treat for any busy mum!
2 - PAMPER VOUCHERSHandwritten by your little ones, what nicer gift than a pamper voucher to cash in when you need a treat the most! Handwritten tokens offering a lie in, a head massage or even to watch a film of their choice (for once!), these notes are a simple and sweet way to treat your mum!
3 - ARTWORK CHOCOLATE BOXES
With months of homeschooling likely to have accumulated a tonne of children’s painting and pictures stashed around the house, Morse Toad’s new Kids Artwork Boxes offer the perfect solution! Ideal as a Mother’s Day Gift for mums and grandmas, just upload a photo of a painting or a picture to transform it into a special keepsake!
Revealing a personalised chocolate message inside, the artwork is turned into a framed lid – ready to hang in pride of place and enjoy… long after the chocs have been devoured!
4 - GARDEN PICNIC
From a cheese and bread board, to homemade cookies, cakes or scones – restaurants might be closed but you can still serve up mum's favourite treats! Just fill a hamper with goodies and remember to include a picnic blanket (and jumper!) for an alfresco meal with no washing up involved!

5 - HANDPRINT FLOWER BOUQUETS
For a bouquet that will last, a simple handprint painting can be transformed into the sweetest Mother’s Day bunch of flowers – sending the perfect posey via post to grandparents, or easily hidden in the house ready for the big day!
6 - HOMEMADE WRAPPING PAPER
Another creative DIY idea is to create homemade wrapping paper. Just cut out a simple love heart shape on a potato- ready for stamping galore!
Not only will it keep the little ones occupied, it will add an extra special touch to your personalised Mother’s Day present!
7 - UPCYCLED VASE
Whether decorating a jar with tissue paper (great for the younger ones), or dip-dying a plain white vase in her favourite colour- this homemade Mother’s Day present is one to cherish and use all year around!
8 - WHY I LOVE YOU JAR
With a million reasons why your mum is so special, fill a jar with handwritten notes about what you love about her the most and tie each love note with ribbon – a thoughtful gift to cherish long after Mother’s Day, and a great way to capture special sentiments!
9 - EXERCISE TOGETHERWhatever your mum enjoys to unwind, why not join in?! From an online yoga class, to a walk in her favourite spot – take advantage of lockdown life and let her chose an activity for you to enjoy together!
10 - MAKE A PLAYLIST
From songs that bring back childhood memories, to songs that make her smile, creating a playlist just for her is a simple, yet effective, pressie... enjoyed even more when a bath is run and candles are lit!
However you choose to spoil your mum this Mother's Day, we hope that we have given you a little food for thought!

Something to keep, and something to eat - in one fell swoop... what better way to celebrate good news or let someone know you are thinking of them?!
Hearing the 'clunk' of our choc-post letterbox gifts is the start of an amazing gift-giving gesture for our recipients, as they delve into an edible letter (hand-poured with premium Belgian chocolate nonetheless!) and enjoy your personlised note and photo.
We love seeing the diversity of messages that come through - from revealing big news and sending big birthday wishes.... through to some very big grovelling apologies! Whatever the occasion - chocolate seems to work its magic - and we are very happy to be a part of its joyful journey!
