Mother’s Day is next Sunday. If you haven’t figured out a gift for the special lady (ladies) in your life, here are a few ideas that you can get or make this week!
One of my favorite things to give for Mother’s Day gifts is something the kids have made themselves. The grandmas in our lives love seeing the kids’ creative side come out, and the kids have fun making them, probably because I usually choose something involving paint.

These kid projects are totally doable this week:
- Thumbprint Art Painted Flowerpots from Mom Always Finds Out. These are super cute, and thumbprint art is way easy. If the mom you’re giving this to doesn’t have such a green thumb, you could just make a thumbprint art picture instead.
- I Love You Because…Mother’s Day Flowers from Busy Creating Memories. The directions here are a little complicated, but you could totally get the same affect with some foam, a sharpie, and a pipe cleaner. If kids can’t write well yet, have them tell you what to put on each petal.
- Grandma’s Garden. We made this one last year, and even though it’s a couple steps, they’re really simple.
- Fun Photo Bookmarks from Come Together Kids. The kids may want to keep these for themselves, but how cute are they just hanging out in the book?
- For kids still in the fingerpaint, make a mess stage, this MOM picture from The Educators’ Spin On It is perfect. They’ll have tons of fun doing it, and the longest part will be waiting for it to dry.
If you’re not feeling creative, but the mom you’re giving a gift to is, how about a coloring book?
- A Giving Heart: A Coloring Book Celebrating Motherhood. I actually won a copy of this one, and it’s so pretty! Lots of florals and wonderful quotes.
- Introvert Dreams: A Coloring Book Journey. Maybe it’s just the circles I run in, but introverted mamas need something to do on their own for a little bit of quiet time, am I right?
- Harry Potter Coloring Book. There are actually several HP coloring books, but this is the one that I have, and it’s a fun mix of patterns, close-ups, symbols, characters, and nods to all sorts of good stuff from the books.
- Dr. Seuss Coloring Book. My husband bought me this one recently, and it’s so fun to color in the wild and crazy illustrations from the books! Whether you match the original colors is up to you…
Is the mom you’re giving a gift to a foodie? This allergy friendly foodie gift guide has lots of great things. A few of my favorites:
- Gadgets, like an immersion blender or a spiralizer
- A new apron, from pretty ruffles to superheros
- An Instant Pot
- A new cookbook (see my top 6 real food cookbooks here, or you can preorder Real Food How To for her today!)
- A special treat – chocolate, coffee, tea, etc.
If you’re still stuck on ideas, why not bake something special for the mother in your life? From cookies to granola to a chocolate chip cheesecake, you can probably find something she’ll enjoy.

The flower pots are adorable! I still have the one I was given almost ten years ago! It is something I treasure now that she is almost grown. Thank you for your fabulous ideas.
