Gifts for Mother’s Day… Some of my earliest and fondest memories are of making and giving handmade gifts or gifts that I was able to purchase with my own money for Mother’s Day for my Mom.
Yesterday my Niece posted a picture of the plaster of Paris hand print that her 3 year old daughter made for her in Pre-School on her Facebook page. When I saw it all sorts of memories came rushing back. I love giving presents, I always have and I still do!
I remember the PTA always ran a flower sale the Friday before Mother’s Day weekend in the gym at the school or outside if the weather permitted. They had flats of flowers from local nurseries, I don’t really remember all the different kinds of flowers they I sort of remember Lily of the Valley, and maybe some Blue Bells but for some reason I loved the Marigolds. Maybe it’s their earthy smell, maybe it was because they’re orange, and orange and red were, and still are my favorite colors, either way I ALWAYS bought the Marigolds for my Mom.
A few years ago I was at the garden center and they were just putting the marigolds out and I caught the scent of them and this very strong memory came flooding back. With that came all the memories of the handmade gifts I had given my Mom over the years, many of which she still has.
There is nothing more priceless and precious than a handmade gift from a child, a drawing, watercolor painting, ceramic bowl, or any other of their handcrafted gifts. They are treasures that came from the heart and were made with love. The pride that a child feels when they get to present you with a handmade gift is so important to their sense of self.
SuperCool Art themed stencil sets and art kits help children create beautiful works of art that capture and preserve life’s fun experiences: a day spent at the zoo, the beach, the aquarium, planetarium, or a road trip across the country, or any other outing, experience or adventure can be captured and preserved forever in the artwork of a child.
So the next time you want to give your child a gift that helps them express their creativity and offers them the opportunity to make a handmade gift for someone special in their life, whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, Mother’s day, Father’s day or any other special occasion get them a set of SuperCool Art themed stencils along with one of our art kits and let them create their very own, one-of-a-kind masterpiece to create and present with pride to the lucky recipient.
Wishing all the Mother’s out there the happiest of Mother’s Day, and here’s hoping you receive a handmade gift from the children in your life!
