Mother's Day is nearing and this year will be a little different than most. Social distancing for family safety means we probably won't be able to grab brunch, gather together or follow many of our usual traditions. From new mom to great grandmother, sister to aunt and all those in between, we still want to honor the influential women in our lives. Join our Mother's Day Facebook event to share stories, access special offers and stay connected while we're apart. Meanwhile, read this Mother's Day gift list to help you find the perfect gift for the women you love!
Personalized Face Mask
Face masks will be a part of our new normal for a little while so why not make sure the mom in your life has enough? Remember, homemade face masks should be washed between uses so even if she has a few, there is nothing wrong with more - especially if it's personalized to her! Pick a fabric with a print or character she loves and use one of our GO! and Studio face mask dies to easily cut and assemble masks in no time!
Bibs & Burp Cloths for New Moms
Bibs and burp cloths can be a cute way to help while still showing off a new mom's personality. Get creative with appliqué shapes, embroidery techniques or even the fabric prints. GO! Getter Emily Tindall used out GO! Baby Bib (55864) with gorgeous embroidery and the GO! Burp Cloth (55863) with our GO! Carefree Alphabet appliqué die (55092) to quickly create an adorable monogramed gift set. If you don't have these dies, consider appliquéing on store bought. It's still a personalized touch!
Gift baskets are a great because they are so easy to customize or adjust to the person who is receiving. Sew up a tote or zipper bag or get a cute basket or decorative box and fill it with sweets, candles, lotions, snacks, trinkets or anything you think she will enjoy.
A Cute Throw Quilt for Comfort
This list wouldn't be complete if a quilt didn't make an appearance. Quilts are such a comfort, mean so much when given as gifts and last for decades to come. We're all in need of a little extra TLC this year, so a small, but cozy throw quilt would be perfect for the special mother in your life. Our Blocks on Board dies will help make cutting blocks easy or you can keep it simple and stick to nine patch patterns that allow for quick cuts and chain stitching. Regardless of pattern, mom will feel so special.
The GO! One More Time Quilt Pattern (PQ11038) is simple, modern and impressive!
If you need help with fabric selection, check out GO! Quilt. It's a free, pattern customizer that will help nail down color placement, supplies and step by step instructions all before you cut.
Homemade Home Decor
If a quilt is a little outside your capabilities right now, easily customize home decor like tea towels, curtains, pillow cases, table cloths or throws with appliqué shapes mom loves. It's still handmade and will provide lasting comfort she deserves. Check out the examples below and think about how you give them your own unique spin:
Or Jessica's Bon Appétit wall decor:
Each of these will be perfectly complimented by her favorite comfort food, baked good or snack. If you can deliver in person, drop it off her door and schedule a video call so she can see and hear from you. At the end of the day, our relationships are the most important part of all these celebrations and while it might be a bit more challenging right now, it's still possible to make mothers feel as important as they are.
