I love Mother’s Day. I treasure the idea of honoring my mother on a special day. And, after she lost her mother a few years back, the day has become even more special. I wrote about my Mother’s Day plans for last year here and here, and plan to find something just as special this year.

I am still looking for inspiration for this year’s gift, but here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas I have had in the past – and some new ideas – that will inspire a few Mother’s Day celebrations this year!

A Custom Printed Tea Towel

If you haven’t read about the gift my cousin and I gave our mothers last year, you must read this post. The tea towel brought tears to many eyes – and still are one of the dearest gifts I’ve given! Here is a little of the post I posted last year about the gift:

It is hard to find the perfect gift. Oftentimes, I wait until the last minute to scurry about, trying to find that perfect present! But, not this Mother’s Day. My cousin Emily and I have had an idea for years (thanks to Pinterest) that we finally put it into motion. We knew that this gift would tug at hearts. Our mothers are sisters, and had the most precious mother who passed away several years ago. When we saw an idea for custom-printed tea towels, printed with old handwritten recipe cards, we knew this would honor our grandmother and our mothers tremendously.We collected several recipe cards and decided on two favorites. We wanted to print enough fabric for four hand towels – two towels of each card. We scanned the cards and saved them in jpeg form (using Adobe). With these jpegs, we uploaded them to Picasa and did our magic! READ THE REST HERE
