Etsy is an online community where people from more than 150 countries sell their homemade creations. You can spend hours stumbling upon new finds — but you don’t have to! Each week we’ll feature a few of our favourite Etsy items — and this week, our favourites might just make you your mother’s favourite… even if only for a day!
Mothering Sunday is upon us and mums like ours deserve more than flowers and chocolates. Etsy is known for its gifts, handmade with love and care. Your mum deserves nothing less.
Mothers and daughters have especially profound relationships and there’s no better way to note that than with these fingerprint necklaces. Made of sterling silver, two hearts come with two chains so that a mum can wear her daughter’s prints and vice versa. This is especially thoughtful for new mums and will make a lovely keepsake. Just order quickly. Maker Baby Tags notes that the moulding process takes two weeks.
From the family
You can’t get more personal than this handmade family tree. Its trunk and branches are composed of your mum’s favourite words, lyrics or poems and the leaves that hang off those branches bear the names of you, your siblings and other family and friends. Just tell Happy Moms Crafts the specifications and get ready to see your mum smile. The name of the designer says it all.
We all think our mum’s are the best cooks so help a true culinary wizard capture her best recipes in this beautiful hard-cover cookbook (and then you can steal them later). With sections for all the known categories, organisation is a breeze. Better still, BLISS Books & Paper bind with a coptic stitch so the book will lie flat when your mum makes her magic in the kitchen. Also includes a grosgrain ribbon page marker.
For every mum
Whatever you buy your mum, be sure to package it in something memorable. This natural jute gift bag by Berry Nice Cushions features a lilac ribbon topped with three-layered handcrafted felt flowers in spring-like pastels, made more adorable with the addition of contrasting buttons. And just think, if you bought your mum the cookbook, you could load this bag up with special gourmet ingredients.
