Last year I saw the funniest video of a mom explaining that you can all forego the kitchen appliances, clothing items, and gardening supplies; all we moms really want is just a day to be alone and relax! In fact, the only Mother’s Day gift I’ve ever asked for was to sleep in.
Since a day off is nearly impossible to come by as a mom, we thought a gift guide made up items that will help all the moms in your life achieve at least a few moments of relaxation was called for! We’ve got 15 soothing items for any lady on your list this summer, featuring this happy and sweet DIY crochet and knitting book SereKNITy: Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire.
I can’t tell you enough how much I love the premise of this book! A lot of times, all the DIY inspiration and how-tos out there can feel overwhelming. But, instead of a focus on the pinterest-perfect, this book is all about the peaceful time spent making the project. A way to slow down and recharge with uncomplicated, practical patterns for the loveliest handmade items.
Besides making you feel at-ease with the projects within, this book also features pretty photography, and lovely illustrations. Plus, the projects are things you actually want to make, like cute boot cuffs and fluffy eye pillows.
Since both my mom and my mother-in-law crochet and knit, I immediately thought this book would make a great gift for either of them. While I definitely think this book by itself is more than a great present, I’m also the kind of person who likes to put things together with complimenting items, in baskets if I can! So I started brainstorming a bunch of other pretty and relaxing items to go with it. I decided to share them all with you in case you’re also looking for soothing gifts for mom!
And, since this guide is cutting it a little close (in case you’ve been away from the calendar recently–Mother’s day is in 6 days), this guide is also perfect for all the women in your life! We all do so much (often too much) and as such could all use some calm and quiet. Looking for birthday presents? Bridesmaid gifts? Shower or just because presents? We got ya covered. And lets not forget how many teachers out there could use one of these items as a last day of school present!
So click through for 15 more peace-promoting gifts for all the gals in your life.
