Mother's Day Gift Guide
These wonderful handmade finds were hand selected with Mothers in mind! 
by: Lindsay Allyn

This "Shopper's Edition" of our Mother's Day Gift Guide is filled with handmade items you can order for the special Mom(s) in your life.  If you're looking to DIY a special keepsake, check out the Makers Edition of our Mother's Day Gift Guide here!

With handmade creations from the US as well as across the pond, and even some digital downloads, you're sure to find something amazing for the Mom(s) in your life, no matter where she lives!

If you know of something amazing that I've missed for this round up, and you think that it's a perfect "Mom" find, I'd really love to hear about it -- Share it with me in the comments at the bottom of this page!

Mom's are pretty dang special! Which is why they totally deserve a special day, just in their honor, that we can dote on them (a little extra -- because hopefully we're doting on them on a regular basis too!) ;)  In the United States, this day is always the 2nd Sunday in May. For our friends in the UK it's linked to Easter, so it falls a couple months earlier. (I'm sorry UK friends that this post is coming out a little late for your 2018 Mother's Day! The good news is though that many of these gifts are great for moms year-round, so be sure to keep reading! I'd be willing to bet you'll have other reasons to celebrate Mum this year!) ;)  Here's a great article on The Sun's website about why we celebrate on different days.

If you are among those who are lucky enough to get to spend the day with your Mom, that's awesome! You're super lucky and I've got to admit, I'm jealous! <3 My mom is on the other side of the country from where I live and I usually have to settle with a phone call, and mailed gift. 

But sometimes it can be hard to find just the "right gift", so I put together a collection of some of my favorite handmade finds by some amazing artists, and I think you're really going to enjoy it!  I hope this page helps you find something a little extra special for the mom or moms in your life! 

Remember to bookmark or Pin this page for later -- Many of the Mom gifts shown here are appropriate for other holidays as well. If your Mum lives across the pond, be sure to catch the "In the UK" section a little further down the page, or click here to skip to it

When I saw these Wanderlust pillow cases, made by Ashlee at Stitch N Stamp Shop, I knew I would be including them in my list!  I mean, what mom doesn't need a handmade piece of decor that not only looks beautiful displayed in their home (traveling or stationary!) but is useful as well? Ashlee also takes custom orders so you can have one designed and created especially for your mom!

I especially love that since they are pillow cases, Mom can change them out with little-to-no effort. So if you really want to spoil her, order a few for different seasons or different holidays, that she can swap out throughout the year! My Mom likes to travel, and always brings a small pillow for long drives so this would be perfect for her at home or away!

Ashlee also makes handmade greeting cards and, like I mentioned, welcomes custom orders, so if you'd like to work with an artist to commission something special for Mom this year, she's definitely someone I'd recommend you get in touch with!  You can check out more of her work on her Instagram page here. 
Does your mom like warm hugs? These handmade knitted and crocheted gifts  from Adventure Wild Crafts may be the next best thing, and will wrap your mom with warmth and love! All the items in this shop are created with the outdoor enthusiast in mind and are handmade by Sarah (the shop owner) and fellow artisan Trudy, from TrudesignsCrafts.

Sarah has been crafting for years and can not only crochet, but designs hand-sewn travel journals, printed T's and other outdoor items as well.  She also takes custom requests, so if there's something in particular you'd like her to make, don't hesitate to send her a message and ask!  

Her friend Trudy, rounds out the collection with her expert knitting skills, and together they are able to offer a variety of quality, handmade items such as lap blankets, ear warmers, and fingerless mitts.

She even sells warm hugs for mugsSeriously! How. Stinkin'. Cute. are these Mug Hugs?!?!

Stop by Sarah's shop here or visit her website -- it's a wonderful resource if you're looking to connect further with nature!

Amy, from Box Frames by Amy, makes lovely framed art that any mother would be honored to receive and display in her home! I'm kind of obsessed with wooden tile letters so I LOVE that she uses them in many of her pieces. She also has other beautiful designs though, like this 9 Heart display or this single heart design with glitter and scatter beads, and can make something special for just about any occasion.

One of her latest creations is this button heart design made especially for Mom. I simply love the quote she used on it! Couldn't be more true! But I think if I had to pick a favorite, it'd have to be this Family Tree framed art. I'm super into genealogy, so I love anything that has to do with family history! 

Visit Amy's Etsy shop here and browse her designs, and don't forget to follow her on Instagram to see all of her latest art!
Kate from ClikaTies makes these amazing, head-turning statement necklaces.  I love everything about this innovative accessory! 

Kate actually designed her "Clika" jewelry after a severe injury left her unable to wear her favorite chunky (heavy!) necklaces. She created her line of bold pendants with ultra lightweight materials so she (and others) don't have to sacrifice style for comfort! (Click here to read more about Kate's story, and the materials she uses.)

Besides being incredibly lightweight, another great feature about this necklace is it's actual design. No difficult fasteners, the Clika can slide up and down to be positioned differently on the ClikaTie, and the pendants are completely interchangeable! Purchase the base necklace by itself, or with a pendant, and then if you decide to buy her more pendants down the road (or she wants to splurge herself) they'll all work on the same necklace!

Although Kate is actually based in the UK, she does ship to the US -- but please be aware that shipping may take a little longer if you're ordering for delivery in the US. 

Follow ClikaTies on Instagram for more pictures of these striking statement pieces, and for styling inspiration or visit her Etsy store to shop her collection.

Thinking of sending a floral arrangement for Mother's Day, but wish it would last a little longer? Check out these impressive paper arrangements made by Ria from Handmade Occasions!  She designs bouquets and arrangements for all kinds of occasions but she created this one, shown above, specifically for Mother's Day. It's available in her online shop here -- you can even order one in your choice of colors! 

Hand crafted using paper, buttons and other media of your choice, these lovely displays won't wilt like tulips, daisies or other live flowers.  And if you're looking for something a little more custom, just ask -- Ria will really work with you to help come up with the perfect arrangement. (She even does bouquets and other decor for weddings!)

Hop over to Ria's website and check out more of her designs by clicking hereYou'll be absolutely blown away by her work!  

Does your Mum love chocolate? (Nevermind...silly question!) Elisa from Treats4ChocoholicsUK makes so many wonderfully delicious treats, but these adorable stir sticks are just too cute! They're even available with two different toppings so you can choose which you think Mum will best -- or buy her both! What a fun and decadent treat for a special occasion! Simply stir in a warm glass of milk and enjoy.

Elisa has other fun novelty chocolates available in her shop as well. Does your mother play cards? Or is she a little more high tech? So many fun (and tasty!) creations to choose from! (It's too bad shipping isn't currently available to the US -- I'd definitely order this awesome video game controller for my sweetie for his birthday! He'd love it!)

Seriously, how amazing are these handmade, stained glass sun catchers, designed by Kerry at Kerry Houghton Glass Designs???  Kerry makes a wide variety of unique and amazing stained glass pieces, but (obviously) designed this one with Mum in mind. I really encourage you to check out her Facebook page. Her art is just stunning. I honestly had a hard time choosing a single image to share with you, but went with the "Mum" design since, you know, this is a Mother's Day post and all. ;) 

In addition to selling ready-made pieces, Kerry also creates custom stained glass art. A few of my favorites that she's made include a unicorn, a precious angel, and this one-of-a-kind caravan.

This "Mom" graphic is something that I designed especially for this Mother's Day post. I really wanted to create something fun, that could be used in a variety of ways, that really says "Mom".  And this certainly does! In fact it says "Mom" in 18 different ways! 

The printable edition comes with both a 12"x 12" square version as well as a 8.5"x11" rectangular design so that you can print it out at home and put it in the frame of your choice to share with mom.  You can order it here and download it right away. Print it out at home or order a print from your favorite print shop, frame, and give to your mother!

It's also available in PNG and SVG formats.  If you want to print it larger than 12"x 12", use the graphic in your digital designs, or cut it out on your SVG compatible cutting machine, click here to check out the Digital Graphics set for this design.

The above handmade Mother's Day gifts are great if your mom lives in the United States, but if she's across the pond, finding an artisan who's a little more "local" might be helpful if you're looking to order something handmade for her this holiday and have it shipped direct.  

Below is a collection of some of my favorite finds in the UK. Mother's Day may be a couple months before the day we celebrate in the US, but really, are there ever too many reasons to celebrate someone so special? Keep reading and find something beautifully handmade for your mother's next birthday, holiday, or special occasion! 

(*ClikaTies , Anya Daniels Artworks and Lionetti Boutique are actually all located in the UK, but I listed them above since ClikaTies and Lionetti Boutique ship to the US, and Anya's digital design can be downloaded almost anywhere, and I didn't want anyone to miss out!*)
Want to send mom something beautiful that smells wonderful while it literally brightens her day? Check out these handmade organic candles made by Ashley at Candles by Ashley!  Organic soy wax, gel wax, even eco friendly palm wax -- Ashley is all about keeping it green! (Except when it comes to the colors of her candles. She's made some pretty amazing creations in all different shades. My personal favorite are these Arctic Blue beauties.) 

She welcomes custom orders and can really create something unique for your mom. And I'm not just talking color and fragrance choices. I've seen some of Ashley's creations made with fun glasses that look good enough to drink (though I'm sure that's not recommended!) ;) like this fun strawberry mocha candle.

Follow her on Instagram here to see all her latest creations and contact her about creating something special for your mom this holiday!

How pretty are these wish bracelets from Lionetti Boutique?! They come on beautifully printed cards to match the occasion and even though this shop is located in Wycombe, they do ship to the US -- just make sure you allow enough time for delivery. The shipping time is usually only about a week.

This shop is run by duo Elisa and Sean, who hope to run more quirky gift shops in the future and share their fun finds full-time.  You can read their story here.  Spoiler alert: Elisa also makes amazing chocolates

They do custom orders too, so swing by their shop and order something personalized especially for your mom!
