Crafty Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and we cherish everyone who identifies as a mother in any way. If you’re still searching for a great gift to give to any one in your life on this occasion, we’ve got some ideas! 

Many of you may still have time to make a gift, and homemade Mother’s Day gifts are always appreciated. A nice set of washcloths in a gentle yarn, such as Berroco Pima 100™, along with her favorite face soap or lotion, would be a sweet little set.

 For someone who loves plants, a quick stop to the local nursery and a felted flower pot container would make a perennial gift that will have the recipient thinking of you year round. Berroco Ultra® Alpaca is perfect for felting and comes in so many colors!

For the laid back hostess, a nice table runner or mats would brighten up their table (and maybe make them more likely to invite you to dinner more often). Berroco Weekend® or Berroco Modern Cotton™ would be excellent yarn choices!

You could also crochet sweet floral coasters using scraps of yarn, or multiple colors of Berroco Corsica®.

The avid reader in your life might also love this tablet cover that can be customized to any device. A brightly colored fingering weight yarn, such as Berroco Sox®, would be very cheery, but you could also work this in a more subtle solid color using Berroco Ultra® Alpaca Fine.

If your intended recipient is a crafter, there are some great new tools available! Any of the Mason-Dixon Knitting field guides are a good bet.

These bonsai-style scissors are so great—I recently received a pair as a gift and I love them much! The blades are short enough that I can easily snip any of my ends, whether it’s for a knitting project or embroidery piece.

Crochet Kaleidoscope (F+W Media, 2018) is a fascinating look through blending colors and crochet motifs.

This stitch holder kit is AMAZING and would make any crafter’s life much easier.

Aaaaand if you want to play the long game, our former design director Norah Gaughan will have a new book out in September. This new tome collects 40 of Norah’s patterns from the annals of the Vogue Knitting archives—we’ll have more on this book later this summer, but you could always pre-order it and place a note in a lovely card!

There are sure to be some great ideas I overlooked—let us know your ideas in the comments!
