May brings many things, but Mother’s Day is among our favorites. It can be challenging to find a present that can measure up to the super mom in your life, so like last year, we’ve put together a few last-minute gift ideas. From gifts to order, pick up, or build yourself, you’ll find the Mother’s Day gift that will put a smile on your loved one’s face.
Gifts for Mom
We know that Mother’s Day can sometimes sneak up on us, so if you’re lacking on time and a present, we suggest going through last year’s last-minute gift guide and pick up the perfect gift at an Acme Tools near you. The list has great gift ideas for the DIY moms, woodworking moms, organized moms, and the outdoor-loving moms.
Mother’s Day Projects
If you have a bit more time on your hands, you should consider giving your loved one a homemade Mother’s Day gift. Over the years, we’ve shared many projects on our blog, but we’d like to highlight a few that mom will love:
1. Ladder Golf
Now that May is here, it’s time to get outdoors. Follow our Ladder Golf build and pair it with a BBQ and you’ve got the perfect evening planned for mom. And don’t worry, if you forgot the rules of Ladder Golf from last year, we’ve got you covered!
2. Custom Glass
Everyone loves a custom gift. Pull out your Dremel Rotary Tool and etch a personalized gift for mom. The amount of time and materials needed are incredibly minimal for this project.
3. Floating Shelves
Re-purpose your scrap wood and build Floating Shelves. Many woodworkers will have the pieces and supplies lying around, just add a piece or two of decor (or let mom decorate them) and viola! The perfect gift.
4. Rocking Chair
Grab a piece of plywood and get to work on a simple Rocking Chair for mom. Be sure to use exterior grade paint so your gift can be used year-round.
5. Wood Sign with Calligraphy Writing
Tap into your creative side for our Wood Sign and Calligraphy project. This recent decor project is quick, and you can find most of the supplies around your home or shop. For a gift she can use for years to come, stencil in her name or use a welcoming phrase.
From our Acme family to yours, have a safe and happy Mother’s Day!
