Whether you’re across the country or across the street don’t forget to send Grandma a gift this Mother’s Day. It takes a village to raise a child so don’t forget to have your child show appreciation for Grandma. They are going to enjoy any gift that your child gives them so make it more memorable by giving them a personalized creation. Here are some budget friendly, thoughtful, homemade items that your child can give to grandma or auntie.
For just a few dollars you can take an ordinary item like a jacket or bag into a personalized gift by adding a nickname in rhinestones. It is easy to bling out almost any item with rhinestone stickers from a craft store like Hobby Lobby or online. Customizing an item with the recipients name, nickname, initials or an inspirational quote makes this an instant winner. One of my favorite items is a jacket that was made for me for a fitness group I belong to, Rockstar Nation. It was an ordinary black hoodie and my fellow Rockstar bought and ironed the rhinestone letters on the back.
Another gift I received from one my Rockstars sisters is a personalized bracelet/key ring. This unique item is the perfect gift has multiple uses. Charms are added to the leather strap and you can use any symbol, number, name or quote you’d like, space permitting. My bracelet has my nickname, Go Get It, and I can clip it to my phone case or wallet and make an instant wristlet.
Hand Decorated Art
A handmade mini flowerpot is a quick and budget friendly personalized gift. I treasure the decorated clay flowerpot from my son that he made in pre-kindergarten. He painted it white and wrote “Happy Mother’s Day”, the year and drew a picture of a butterfly and grass. You can also work magic with stickers and a sharpie if you do not want to draw a picture.
Goodies in a Basket
A treat basket with homemade goodies is always a great gift. Who can resist fresh cookies, brownies, cake pops or lemon bars? Wrap up any of these items or a mixture of all of these items into a small basket, gift bag or other container. A quick money saving tip: check out leftover Easter baskets and see if they can be repurposed for a Mother’s Day basket. If you don’t have time to make a basket you can always order one.
