The adventures of a first time Mummy and my son Jack.

Homemade Mothers day gift idea’s

Mother’s day is this Sunday and not all of us have the money to splash out on expensive cards and gifts. Lets face it all most mums want, myself included is a lie in and being able to go to the loo without an audience.

So what if the kids want to make their own gifts? Well look no further….

Homemade cards

The ideas are endless for this, from simple cards with drawings of ‘my mummy’ to pop up cards praising mums best features.


Let the kids take the lead, mum will love a card from her babies no matter what’s on it.



Gifts can be a little tricker to think of but there is a long long list.

Why not have a go at making your own bath bombs for mum to enjoy during a well deserved soak.

Emma magazine featured these dried flower bath bombs using just 8 simple ingredients, you can view the full recipe here.


Eat,knit & diy made their own bath bombs using an ice cube tray as a mould, full recipe here.


Barerootgirl made copycat versions of Lush bath bombs for a 6th of the price with the option to add lots of different ingredients, find out how here.


Something as simple as a hand and footprint with a little message or poem would put a smile on any mums face.


Here’s a poem Jack and I made for Fathers day last year which could be adapted for Mothers day.



Photo’s work well as gifts with a little imagination. How about taking a photo of your child/children holding a letter to spell out a word or name.



For Valentines day Jack and I did some heart printing using a shaped toilet roll tube. You can read our full post here.



A cut off celery stalk works brilliantly for printing roses, according to Maureen Cracknell Handmade bunches of leafy lettuce will also work.


Attachment mummy featured Mother’s day biscuit cards, which you can read about here.

How about breakfast in bed? Martha Stewart has a delightful recipe for heart shaped eggs and toast which you can find here.


Hopefully this has sparked your imagination and the mum’s in your life will have a fab Mother’s day.
