From little touches, to homemade sweets at family brunches, we all have many ideas on how to honour our mothers for Mother’s Day. To celebrate these special women, nothing says I love you like a truly unique handmade gift.

For Sara Douglass, CEO of the scrapbooking company Stampin’ Up!, the possibilities for offering a real gift from the heart are endless and affordable. “Whether you’re new to the crafting world or an expert, it is easy to create something with your own hands,” says Douglass. “Everyone can easily personalize a greeting card or create an unbeatable look for wrapping for small gifts.”

Instead of looking for that one card that will express exactly how you feel, create your own with the stamping kit A Nice Cuppa alongside a paper kit of your favourite colour.

Smart wrappings

These are ideal for mom’s favourite baked goods, or other little thoughtful gifts. More than one mother to celebrate? The All Boxed Up kit allows you to create 10 boxes with a botanical décor that will be sure to impress.
