Once again, Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and with economic conditions as they are many are scrambling to find the right gift for mom, without breaking the bank. One thing that is important to consider is the gesture of gift giving. It’s often the thoughtfulness that goes into a gift that makes is special, not neccessarily the cost of the gift itself. Many people “cop out” by choosing to give flowers, which can be expensive, or a gift card, which says to mom “I put no thought into this gift.” Rest assured, you can get a Mother’s Day gift that is both thoughtful, and inexpensive by using vinyl lettering, or wall words to create your own custom gift.
One option is to create a custom gift for mom on her special day. Rather than choosing a “one size fits all” gift off of the shelf, put something together that is custom for your mother. This is easily done by using hand made crafts and home decor products. By utilizing vinyl letters (sometimes called wall letters), you can make an amazing personalized gift for mom without breaking your budget. Here are a few options:
Using vinyl lettering kits as a stencil allows you to apply the stencil to glass, such as Pyrex baking dishes, apply an etching creme to the exposed area, and create a beautifully custom etched gift for mom. Last year we did many of these for mothers by etching the words “From the kitchen of Rebecca Holdaway – Worlds Best Mother.” A personalized gift like this mean a lot because it’s personalized, shows a lot of thought went into it, and can be used for years and years.
Home Decor Sign
A personalized home decor sign is another great Mother’s Day gift. You can either customize a vinyl lettering kit, or choose a pre-designed one that highlights how special mothers are. Either way, with a simple board, some paint, and a vinyl letters kit, you can make a decorative home decor sign that mom will cherish for years to come.
