Our Favourite Mother's Day Gifts

Mother's Day is only a few days away, so for those dads and kids out there, it's time to get crafty. Mums, if you'd like one of these, it's worth printing out a copy to 'accidentally' leave somewhere...


While a shop-bought card is sturdy and near on flawless - there is something special about a handmade, heartfelt message from your little ones on Mother's day.

We've scoured the web to find a few of our favourite designs - for the Pritt Stick brigade as well as those budding artists...

Handmade gifts for Mother's Day

Flowerpot CardsFlowerpot Cards

While cut flowers have a shelf life and flowers in the garden bloom seasonally, these paper creations will last all year long. A simple design even for the craft-challenged.

Photo Bookmarks

Photo BookmarksTake a few wild and wacky photos, and you'll have a constant reminder for mum that she's loved. This simple idea requires a bit of pre-planning but can involve children young and old. Have the older children direct a photo-shoot - in most cases the little ones will be happy to ham it up for the camera!

Survival Kit

Mum's Survival Kit

These are a few of her favourite things... Find a container and collect a few of mum's favourites, from an emergency bar of chocolate to her go-to lip balm. Just knowing you know what things she likes will put a smile on her face - and you can rest assured that she'll use every last item in there!

Hands-on Tote

Tote BagHaving an extra bag to carry around all your children's stuff is a blessing most days. If you don't mind a little mess and have time to pick up a few items, this activity is simple and works with all sizes of hands. Whether you fill it with goodies or wrap it up, mum's sure to be thankful for this handy project.

Breakfast in Bed Tray

Breakfast in Bed

So this has more than one use and requires a few crafty supplies, but if the mum in your life likes breakfast in bed, this is a great gift - as long as it comes with breakfast! As each item is removed, she'll reveal yet another cheeky face.

I would very much recommend Tinies Aberdeen to any parent in NE Scotland looking for a childcare / nanny. I needed a part-time nanny for my 7 month old son, worried about leaving him I wanted to make sure it was the right person and through Tinies we have found that person and I couldn't be happier. Tinies took the time to understand my requirements and explain the process. Their professional and friendly manner made the whole process easy. Thank you Tinies.
