Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is on the horizon and as both a Mother and daughter myself, I love to make and also receive handmade gifts.  Happy As Larry products are lovingly handmade by women in Nepal and are designed to be beautiful, magical and made to last.  Mother’s Day provides a wonderful opportunity to treat your special Mum to a handcrafted gift and we've included a few handmade and homemade Mother's Day gift ideas below.


There’s nothing quite like sharing a cup of tea or coffee to bring family and friends together and with my Mum being my best friend, we’ve shared many a story over a lovely cuppa together.   Regardless of whether your Mum is a tea or coffee lover, we’ve got a gorgeous range of trivets and coaster gift packs in store for Mother's Day gift ideas.

Sherbet Yellow and Pink Felt Coasters

With our new Sherbet felt ball trivets and matching coasters now available on line, why not treat your Mum to a gift she will be able to appreciate all year round which is both a stunning home décor accessory and also a functional piece to protect her table.


We have so many gorgeous varieties, styles and colours of trivets you’ll be spoilt for choice in what to buy for your Mum.  Our Hearts and Crosses Coaster & Trivet game set is a fun gift which is packaged in a soft calico drawstring bag and your Mum can play when family members visit or at dinner parties with friends.


Both my Mum and I love colourful accessories and our Decorator's gift pack featuring a felt ball trivet and matching 3 metre felt ball garland is perfect to add a vibrant splash of colour and style to your Mum's lounge or dining room.

If you're looking for ideas for homemade gifts you can make for your Mum (and yourself) which are simple to make and delicious to boot, the Irish Cream Liqueur recipe featured here uses coffee and is a tried and true favourite - plus a lot cheaper than original Bailey's!

Last year I received a gorgeous Mother's Day card from my son who had made it at school featuring a 3D cut out cardboard cup with a real (unused!) tea bag in it.  Another simple gift idea for your Mum using teabags is to make a DIY heart shaped bag which she'll absolutely love.
