1.1 Handlettering online course

Does your mother always like to learn something new? Then you give a hand lettering online course! Hand lettering is very popular right now and not without reason: it is just a lot of fun and you do not have to have nice letters to start hand lettering. You don't need any previous knowledge and with a little practice you can learn to conjure up great creations like this:

The Hand lettering online course* Timo has a total of 45 lessons and over 6 hours of video material teaching step-by-step how to write. There are also many great exercise sheets included as PDFs for download in the course. If your mother likes to tinker and learn new things, such an online course is definitely a great gift idea and something different! Wouldn't it be nice if your gift gave you a new hobby?

You can easily complete the first introductory lessons without special lettering pens and achieve beautiful results. Here* go to the course!

1.2 Your best self

When I was looking for digital gift ideas, I came across another special kind of gift: a gift in the form of a video series full of inspiring videos with valuable tips for personal self-realization. You can give them away in the form of a gift envelope with a code to print out. With this you can easily access the video series. If the idea of ​​sustainability is important to you when it comes to gifts and you are looking for an appreciative gift that won't be on the shelf after a few days, then take a look Here* past.

Your best self


2 time instead of stuff

Probably the best present for your mom is time for two - especially if you no longer live together and can't see each other that often: how about a real mother-daughter day again? Spend a whole day just with your mother and enjoy valuable time together. Especially since there is a ban on contact, it is certainly all the more nice to spend time with your loved ones in the post-Corona period. Just give a voucher and make a fixed date that you can look forward to. Have a long breakfast together, then relax in the wellness area and end the evening in the cinema. Sounds great right? So you have time to chat again and forget everyday life. The moments we shared are sure to stay in your memories for a long time! 

At canva you can easily design and print your vouchers yourself free of charge. 


2.1 wellness

Mothers are one thing above all else, true everyday heroines! They master child, job, household and all the big and small problems at home for us. How about a wellness voucher that you can redeem together so that your mom can really relax again? On the mother-daughter wellness day, for example, she can have a relaxing Massage* treat yourself or you can make a whole one Wellness holiday* over the weekend. Whether in a wellness hotel or at home - it doesn't matter, just let your mind wander and enjoy the break from everyday madness together.

2.2 climbing garden

A special kind of outdoor activity in which trust and mutual bonding play an important role: Take your mom on a trip to the high ropes course! In lofty heights you help each other, encourage each other and overcome all obstacles together. This joint excursion will certainly not be boring and at the end of the day you can be very proud of yourself! Here* you will find a variety of high ropes courses right near you.

2.3 City trip

Did your mom tell you about a city she always wanted to see? If so, let's go! Explore a new city together and visit the most beautiful sights together. After the sightseeing tour, look for a trendy cafe or restaurant and discover the local specialties - an excursion that you will definitely remember for a long time. Here* you can choose your city trips together with your mother very flexibly or Vouchers for city trips* to order!

2.4 Baking course

Your mom loves delicious desserts and likes to try new things in the kitchen? Above all, can't she say no to cakes and pies? How about a joint baking course where you can let off steam with culinary delights? Bakes and decorates cakes and other goodies together. Enjoy your created delicacies after the work is done and let the day end perfectly. Here* go to the right offers.

3 The most beautiful gifts are homemade ❤

3.1 Bake for mom

How often has your mom baked a delicious cake for you? Whether for a birthday or just for fun - I wetter more often than you can count. On Mother's Day you can return the favor and bake something great for her. A nice cake topper gives your cake a very special touch, especially for Mother's Day:

3.2 Make an explosion box yourself

Have you ever made an explosion box yourself? For me, explosion boxes are THE gift idea par excellence. They are personal and you can give them away for any occasion, because they offer an infinite number of design options and guarantee a great surprise effect when opened. The classic explosion box consists of a square base with four simple square sides that unfold like an explosion as soon as the lid of the box is removed. Inside the box, your shared photos and movable design elements can be accommodated. How to make a box like the one in the picture below, I'll explain step-by-step in this one Blog Post. If you have never made an explosion box and would like to learn more about it, feel free to check it out Blog Post with the basics of making an explosion box. In the meantime, there are even pre-made boxes in which you only have to stick your pictures. Decide here how much you want to do yourself.

With this personal gift set that you can design yourself, you already get a finished box and folding card with wooden gift tags and all you have to do is fill it with your favorite photos.
