Finding a thoughtful gift for Mom for Mother’s Day can be hard. Most of the time we moms don’t feel comfortable asking for what we want…
I mean, how many times have you heard “Oh, whatever you give me will be great” when asking a Mom what she wants for Mother’s Day. Gift cards are almost always a great idea for Mom. She can get exactly what she wants and hopefully enjoy the process of picking out her gift.
Creative Gift Card Packaging Ideas
The only problem with gift cards is that they are small, and sometimes you want to give Mom something that’s not a card. A little bit of creative packaging can help with this problem. That’s why I love giving Mother’s Day Mason Jar Gifts!
Some of the most popular posts on this blog are Mason Jar Gift Ideas. I’ve created them for Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Valentine’s Day and decided that this year would be a good idea to create some for Mother’s Day.
The great thing about this gift is that it is totally customizable. You can pick what goes inside of the Mason Jar based on what kind of things that Mom likes.
Mother’s Day Mason Jar Gift Ideas
You can also think “beyond the gift card”. I’ve rounded up some creative ideas for you.
A few years ago I shared this Sewing Mason Jar Gift idea…
It would make a great gift for Mom especially if it’s filled with a few special sewing supplies (like maybe a new pair of tiny scissors??)
If Mom has a favorite candy, she may also like this Jelly Bean, Flower Mason Jar filled with her favorite treats! I added a paper flower to the top to dress it up a bit, but you could also add a silk flower. If you don’t want to make the flower, purchase one at the craft store.
How to Make a Gift Card Mason Jar
Another clever way to give mom a gift in a Mason Jar is to put a gift card to her favorite store or restaurant inside.
- Crinkle Confetti
- Mason Jar
- Gift Card
- Bakers Twine or Ribbon
- Printable Mother’s Day Tag (download on Templates Page, there are a few different designs to pick from)
Just fill the Mason Jar with the confetti and put the gift card inside. If mom has a few favorite stores, it would be cute to put a couple of different cards there.
Then center the doily over the flat lid of the mason jar and screw the outside ring on.
Tie the gift tag to the jar with the baker’s twine and you’re done!
