7 Handmade Gift Ideas That Will Make Your Mum’s Day


If you haven’t already marked the date on your calendar, then make sure you put a big circle around 19th March. After all, that’s when Mother’s Day falls this year. Don’t panic, though; you do still have a few weeks left if you are hoping to make a gift for your mum this year, then you will at least want to start planning now. 

With the right woodworking machinery, you should be able to tackle a wide range of different projects that are sure to give you the perfect solution for Mother’s Day. Here is our list of 7 handmade gift ideas to get you started if you are stuck for gift ideas this year. 

  1. Picture frames

One thing that many mums have plenty of is pictures, whether these are pictures of their children, their grandchildren or even their pets. Why not create a set of bespoke wooden picture frames that will let your mum create a wonderful display of just some of her photos. If you have time, why not include some new photos of you and your family for her to put on display? This will make a fantastic and incredibly personal gift that is certain to be well-received. 

  1. Bath tray caddy

There is nothing nicer than relaxing in a warm bath and letting the stresses of the day soak away, except for relaxing in a warm bath with somewhere to rest your book, tablet or even a glass of wine. A bath tray caddy is a great gift for anyone who loves a bath, and there are plenty of different personalised touches you can add that will make it unique to your mum. Why not add some of her favourite bath products to complete the present.

  1. Butterfly house

Similar to a birdhouse, a butterfly house is a great present for anyone who loves their garden. With long vertical slits rather than the round hole of a birdhouse, these are a great shelter for butterflies in your garden and a good way of encouraging them into the outdoor space that you have. 

  1. Patio table 

For the mum who has everything, why not create a stunning side table that can be used in the garden? Placed next to a garden bench or your mum’s favourite garden chair, a practical table is a great place for a drink, your favourite book or anything else your mum might want in the garden. It is infinitely a more practical solution than resting items on the grass. 

  1. Serving tray

If your mum loves to entertain, she is certain to appreciate a lovely handmade serving tray. Opt for something a little different by using a stunning piece of reclaimed wood to create the base of your serving tray, and add some vintage-style handles for a really unique look. It is certain to get everyone who sees it talking about it. 

6. Wooden chopping board

In the same vein as our previous suggestion, a stunning wooden chopping board can make a lovely gift. Use a good piece of smooth wood and ensure that it is sealed properly to protect the wood and make it last longer and also to protect anything that is cut on the board. 

7. Herringbone wine rack

Our final suggestion is a stylish and very elegant herringbone-style wine rack that will hold just a couple of bottles of your mum’s favourite wine – why not go the extra mile and opt for a couple of bottles to really complete this thoughtful gift? Use contrasting shades of wood to give your wine rack even more appeal.
