We know your mother is one of a kind – so this year, give her a Mother’s Day celebration as unique as she is. From gifts that she’s always wanted to treats you make yourself, we’ve got ideas that will help you plan a day just for her. Mother’s Day is coming up fast (it’s Sunday, May 12), so now is the time to get ready!
If Mom loves jewelry, make her a piece that no amount of money could buy – like a Disney-themed Cutie Charm Bracelet. The description for this do-it-yourself bijoux might say it’s for kids, but crafters of all ages can use the template to create a beautiful piece — and who doesn’t love a good charm bracelet? To make her bracelet even more special, add a few charms with personal meaning for her, whether it’s her initials or an item related to her favorite hobby.
Or give her the gift of time with in the form of a “Mommyland” coupon book – styled to look like the old Disney Parks ticket books we all fondly remember. Use the downloadable template to create coupons Mom can redeem from the family. There are some already filled out, or use the “your choice” coupon to come up with your own ideas — perhaps a spa day, or a ladies’ lunch? When you customize your own coupons, you can give your mother just what she’d like.
Finally, drop by DisneyStore.com’s “Personalized Shop” for items you can give an individual touch — add her name, or design your own item with a theme you know she loves. Put her favorite characters on a T-shirt, or order a birthstone ring accented with Mickey ears and engraved with her initials.
Show Mom how sweet you think she is – whip up a batch of custom cupcakes with one of her favorite themes. We like the springtime touch of Everblossom Cupcakes or Iridessa’s Good Luck Cupcakes — or if your mother is more of a surfer girl, then perhaps Squirt Happy Turtlecakes will be just the thing. With 45 Disney cupcake ideas to choose from, one is bound to be just the thing.
If savory treats are more Mom’s style, plan an afternoon tea to share and offer her tempting Mother’s Day Tea Sandwiches. Use mini cookie cutters to make them whatever shape she’d like – we love these cut into rounds, garnished with Mickey “ears” on the plate (cut two sizes of sandwich, or use two cherry tomatoes or melon balls per sandwich). Deck the table with flowers, pour her favorite cuppa, and enjoy some special time together.
However you celebrate, take the time to tell her what makes her one of a kind, and give her a Mother’s Day she’ll love.
