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:

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?

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 fulfillment. 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 does not stand on the shelf after a few days, then take a look Here* past.

Your best self

2 time instead of stuff

Probably the most beautiful gift for your mom is time for two - especially if you no longer live together and cannot see each other so often: how about a real mother-daughter day again? Spend a whole day with your mother and enjoy valuable time together. Especially since there is currently a ban on contact, it is definitely all the better to spend time with your loved ones in the time after Corona. Just give a voucher and make a fixed appointment that you can look forward to. Have extensive breakfast together, then relax in the wellness area and end the evening in the cinema. Sounds great doesn't it? So you have time to chat properly and forget everyday life. The moments together will surely be remembered 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, 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? At Mother-Daughter Wellness Day, for example, she can have a relaxing one 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 very special outdoor activity in which trust and mutual bond play an important role: Take your mom on a trip to the high ropes course! In lofty heights you help each other, encourage yourself and overcome all obstacles together. This trip together will 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, then go ahead! Explore a new city together and visit the most beautiful sights together. After the sightseeing tour, look for a hip cafe or restaurant and discover the local specialties - an excursion that you will surely 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!

3 The most beautiful gifts are homemade

3.1 Bake for mom

How many times has your mom baked a delicious cake for you? Whether for a birthday or just for the sake of it - I weather more often than you can count. On Mother's Day you can reciprocate and bake something great for her. A beautiful cake topper gives your cake a very special touch, especially on Mother's Day:

I also picked out a few delicious recipes 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 opening. The classic explosion box consists of a square base with four simple square side surfaces that unfold explosively as soon as the lid of the box is removed. Your photos and moving design elements can be stored inside the box. How to make a box like in the picture below I explain step-by-step in this 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.

Capture your best moments together in a self-made photo box (mini photo album). With this personal gift set to design yourself, you already get a finished box and folding card with wooden gift tags and you only have to fill them with your favorite photos.
