When it comes to Mother's Day, I really like personal and very sentimental gifts. I love the idea of giving something that means so much and could well become an heirloom. I've been tooling around the web, looking for the perfect gift idea and I found some that I'd love to share with you. I'm posting this now because all of these items are custom made and the artists need lead-time to have your gift done in time for Mother's Day.
Clockwise from top left:
Fingerprint Necklace - Nothing is more unique to an individual than their fingerprints. How wonderful would it be to have them next to your heart? This would be so sweet with a baby's fingerprint.
Hand Cut Silhouette - I love silhouettes, especially of small children. I think that the simplicity of them captures the innocence of childhood perfectly. They are such a nice personal touch for any room. There are a lot of silhouette artists online, especially on Etsy, and I'm really drawn to Silhouettes By Elle's style and detail.
Signature Bracelet - I shared Big E Jewelry's signature bracelet about a year ago and I am still so in love with their jewelry. They will make a bracelet or necklace from any handwritten signature or short phrase. You could have a bracelet made from the signature of a beloved one who passed away or someone who is still in your life but you want to honor.
Recipe Tea Towel - You know that I love old family recipes in their original handwriting. I recently found out that you can have them made into a tea towel! There are several companies that make them and I really like Modern Vintage Market for their style and reasonable price. How great would it be to have grandma's best recipe made into a towel for all of her grandkids?
Jewelry From Kids Art - Check this out! Formia Design will make your child's artwork into gold or silver jewelry! Earrings, necklaces, rings, key chains (Father's Day gift idea as well...!), you name it. Their jewelry is definitely the priciest item on this list, but reasonable for such a detailed and unique item. I'm contemplating a charm for my bracelet :)
I hope that this gives you a few ideas for unique Mother's Day gifts. I won't say what I'm giving this year, because a certain person may be reading this!
