During this time of year, there’s always a search for the perfect Mother’s Day gift idea for crafting moms. We have 4 birthdays in my family each April, so as I write this I’m at a loss as to what to get my dad for his birthday today (we just shop at different stores! haha).
So, I thought I’d be helpful to the kids and husbands of the world and help them find a thoughtful gift for the crafty mom and wife in their lives.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide
What is a great gift idea for mom?
I’m sure you are thinking IDK, that’s why I’m reading this! I’m going to encourage you to look around her home and think about what she talks about. What is she making? What does she post pics of (or share pics of) on her social media?
Start by asking what does your mom like to craft? Look at her craft room. Do you see a sewing machine? Cricut machine or Silhouette Cameo? Maybe some paint and some canvases?
Keep in mind what you’ve noticed when you run through these questions below to pick the perfect mother’s day gift.
- What are her favorite colors?
- Do you see her carrying a tote bags all the time with crafts or books inside?
- What does always talk about enjoying? … Coffee? Tea? Wine? Eating Out?
- What is she posting or sharing? (Sewing Kit things? Painting Ideas? Cricut Project Ideas?)
Take the answers from above and add them to these simple items for the perfect gift idea:
- Tote Bags
- Flower Pot and Seed Packets for her green thumb
- Gift Card
- Essential Oils
- Handwritten note
- Picture Frame and pic of loved ones
- Kits for Craft Projects
- Personalized Gift
- Hot Glue Gun
- Adult Coloring Books
You could go nuts trying to find the perfect gift and end up with personalized golf balls, or a plain old tape measure for her sewing room. That’s probably not the perfect Crafter mom Gift you want to wow her with.
To help you out I’ve put together a few cute, creative, pretty, and even a few fun and practical gift ideas to keep you on mom’s good side. haha
Mother’s Day Gift Guide
I’m going to break the craft gift ideas for mom down into a few sections.
- All Around DIY Addict / Crafter
- Decor Crafter
- Business Crafter
…And I’ll sneak in a few mom must-haves too.
This will make it easier for you if you can pick one of these to define your mom or wife.
All Around DIY Addict / Crafter: She makes, bakes, and creates just about anything from home decor, to scrapbook pages, and graphic tees. She probably loves to learn a new craft like sewing, knitting or watercolor painting. Look for similar things, but maybe new color schemes or something new to stretch her creativity kits are a fun idea.
Decor Crafter: This one usually does a DIY to decorate her home. A fun sign, a seasonal wreath… She has a love for holidays and her house always lets you know what season or holiday is coming up next. Watch for items that accent what she has already in place, or inspires her to create more! The tray below is a great idea for a craft supply organizer.
Business Crafter: This mom is creating and selling lots of what she makes. She’s a maker, an entrepreneur, or a creative•preneur. Look for ways to support her business adventure, our planner or a cute boss mug are good ideas.

Gift Ideas for the Business Crafter
This is me (well all of these are) but this is my passion. This is what drives me, so I find this one easy. And bonus, I have a few options on our site here to help you shop for mom. One thing a business crafter is usually always: overwhelmed. So many things to do, make and market that in her head it’s probably a little messy.
To help organize all of this we have our planners for creative entrepreneurs. It’s a business tool for success. And even though it’s dated, there’s still plenty of time left for her to use this and grow her business, even if she doesn’t have any marketing success.
We even have a couple of options here on the blog!
Get her a ticket to the virtual Craft Business Summit. Show her how you support her business and respect her drive to chase her dream.

How about the cutest label maker ever for her business packaging?
DIYs and designing SVG files are my passion. I feel so blessed to get to do what I love on this site for work. If you are a crafter or a craft business owner, I invite to look around and have fun! Read more…
