Seven ideas for Cricut Mother’s Day gifts

2 March 2021

Mother’s Day may look a little different this year, but you can still make it one to remember with a thoughtful homemade gift. We’ve rounded up seven Cricut Mother’s Day gifts to get you started.

Handmade is best

Cricut UK and Ireland marketing manager, Kathy Hodson, is a mum herself. She says she really treasures the homemade gifts her children have given her in the past. “My mum still has some of the things I made for her as a child. And now, thanks to Cricut I can still make her things that she will love.

“A personalised present really does mean so much more than a last-minute, shop-bought, impersonal gift. A kind, thoughtful gift shouldn’t be underrated. Spreading kindness can really brighten someone’s day and what’s great about making your gift is that you feel as good about making it as the recipient is to unwrap it. 

“We hope these ideas will spark a little creativity and inspire people to create a heartfelt gift for their mums, step-mums, or grandmothers – whoever they are celebrating this Mother’s Day.” 

So why not put a little time aside to make something mum can truly cherish? Here are seven stylish and chic gifts you can make with Cricut digital smart cutting machines.

Homemade Hamper

What better way to pamper the motherly figure in your life than with their own personalised care hamper? First, you’ll need to assemble a selection of pamper products (or make your own!). Small items like body scrubs, a facemask, lip balm, and a candle make great additions to a pamper box. To create the personalised labels all you’ll need is some cardstock, some vinyl, and your favourite Design Space font. Your Cricut will do the rest. Finish off with some ribbon and ta-dah! Your very own personalised treat box.  

Rose-gold jewellery gift set

Everyone loves thoughtful jewellery. This rose gold leather fringe set is perfect for mums who love to add a bit of sparkle to their outfit! With matching earrings, necklace, and bracelet, this set can be worn as individual pieces or together for a statement look. The perfect project for keen crafters, you’ll need some faux leather, foil iron-on, and some jewellery clasps.  This step-by-step project in Design Space walks you through how to make it.

beau-tea-ful afternoon tea 

If you live with your mum, why not surprise mum with a beau-tea-ful surprise to go with a homemade afternoon tea – a set of personalised teacups and saucers. It’s the perfect gift to accompany some quality time together this Mother’s Day, if you are able. All you’ll need for this simple project is a set of plain white saucers and some black vinyl. Fill the cups with mum’s favourite beverage and sip away!  

This ready-to-make project can be found in Design Space.

Create a chic candle

Every mum has a favourite scent. Maybe it’s fresh daffodils in spring or fresh ocean air that reminds them of a favourite holiday. Why not capture that smell with this chic personalised candle? All you need is a candle with a flat plain, jar – just like the ones you can get in most candle-making kits. Cricut machines have a handy pen slot, and there are hundreds of fonts to choose from, so you’ll be able to create a truly personal label with her name on it to take her back to a special trip or memory!  

A personal notebook

A personalised photo album or memory book is a touching gift that’s unique to every mum. All you’ll need for this project is a photo album and some gold vinyl. Fill the book with printed pictures, mementoes and handwritten notes and you’ll have created a heartfelt gift that she can treasure forever.  You’ll find the project in Design Space here.

Luxe eye mask

The gift of relaxation is priceless, so why not create a fun and chic sleeping mask so she can get some much-deserved rest year-round! With a simple silk eye mask and some coloured iron-on you can create a fun and simple eye mask, and why not create a cute room service menu to go along with it?  

Make it here in Design Space.

Make up a make up bag

If you’re looking for a gift that mum can use every day, why not create a fun and quirky makeup bag for her using a Cricut cosmetic pouch and Infusible Ink? This super mum design is great for reminding the motherly figure in your life how grateful you are for her. You could even create this design with Cricut iron-on. It would look great in holographic, glitter, mosaic, neon, foil, or a metallic material.
