Pretty Photo Collages to Preserve Beautiful Memories of You and Your Mum

Creating a photo collage is a wonderful way to document the relationship that you have enjoyed with your mother over the years. Choose pictures from all aspects of your life together, from childhood snapshots to more recent times when you have posed together. Try to include images from important events that you have shared such as weddings, christenings, important birthday celebrations, and memorable family holidays. Select photos of different sizes and feel free to crop and trim into interesting shapes. Glue into an eye-catching arrangement, and frame the results ready for hanging in the room of her choice.

Unique and Attractive Hand-Decorated Vases to Decorate the Home

Sure, you could go out and buy a vase for your mother for her special day, but it’s a lot nicer to decorate one for her yourself. An empty wine bottle, a coffee jar or milk bottle are all ideal for creating this gift. Simply steep in hot water to remove any labels and then paint a design of your choice using special glass paints. Opt for her favourite colour, make unusual patterns, or paint a decorative scene if you are especially artistic. A bunch of freshly-cut flowers will be the perfect finishing touch.

If you are short of time however, and would prefer to buy a unique and beautiful vase that is something a little different to those that you may find on the high street, Eternity Rose offers a selection of stunning vases that have been hand-dipped in 24 karat gold or pure silver. Elegant and stylish, these opulent vases would look perfect on any mantelpiece.handmade gift for mothers day

Recipes for simple yet delicious chocolates can be found easily on the internet or in cookery books, so simply select one that you think will appeal to your mother’s tastes and whip up a tasty treat to delight her. Buy a beautiful and decorative box for perfect presentation, and tie with a fancy ribbon for a present that will be infinitely more appreciated than the store alternative.

Handmade marmalade, jam and chutney are also wonderful homemade Mothers Day gifts. Choose her favourite fruit and follow a simple recipe for an easy to produce yet extremely effective present. Store in an attractive mason jar with a decorative label and your mother will want to display your gift in pride of place before finally eating it.

Cookies, cakes, muffins and brownies are also good choices for homemade Mothers Day gifts. Easy to make and delicious to eat, they can be presented on an ornate tray or in an elegant box. A great improvement over a store-bought sweet treat.
