Nothing makes me happier on Mother’s Day than a gift or card hand-crafted by one of my kids. Each signature or message inscribed is yet another way to preserve those fleeting moments of their childhood. I don’t save much but one of these treasures is almost always a keeper. If you’re looking for another way to show some love to the mothers in your life here are a few unique gift ideas that could be paired nicely with one of those homemade cards or crafts.

Mother’s Day: Let the Kids Do the Cooking
How about a meal whipped up by the kids? That sounds like a perfect Mother’s Day to me. Their ages may dictate how much or how little they can prepare, but all ages can participate in some way. There are a few great cooking tools out there to help enhance the cooking experience for your kids. My kids have mastered cooking a few basic foods that will hopefully keep them well-fed when it’s time for college. Allowing my kids to be active participants in the cooking process has always been important to me. They stir, they pour and they help in every way possible.

What I Love About Mom Fill In The Love Journal ($10)
This gift is similar to those construction paper cards I was talking about. What I Love About Mom Fill In The Love Journal is a great way to preserve a small piece of their childhood and it’s all about you! Each child can personalize the book with their own comments and memories.
Donate a Year of School ($58)
International Rescue Committee (IRC) has put together a list of rescue gifts that help those in need. Their gift ideas range from donating a year of school to a child in need to providing a newborn baby kit to mothers in Zimbabwe. In Afghanistan alone, IRC helped educate more than 13,000 girls in 2015. $58 can supply the tuition, books and other supplies a girl needs to attend school for a year.
Grow Pizza Kit ($10)
I’m in love with this Grow Pizza Kit that comes with everything you need to grow a pizza garden. The egg carton garden includes 6 packages of heirloom seeds (sweet basil, heirloom Rutgers tomatoes, green bell peppers, greek oregano, Italian parsley, scallions), starter soil, pizza recipes, wooden plant ID stakes, growing instructions, pencil & 100% recycled fiber egg carton planter. They also have a Little Fresh Veggie Garden if pizza isn’t her thing.
