Mother’s Day Crochet Gift Ideas

There are less than two months left till Mother’s Day! A handmade gift can save money, but most importantly its sentimental value will be priceless.  

I still don’t know what I’m going to give my mom and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day this year, but I’m already collecting some ideas.

In this list I share some of my crocheted works as well as some interesting projects that I found on the web.    

1. A table topper or big doily such as this Crocus Doily takes time to make but would make a gorgeous present.

2. A set of handkerchiefs with lace edgings would make a truly special and romantic gift. Sometimes you can find decent quality hankies even at dollar stores. Or you can make them entirely handmade.

 3. You can buy a set of towels and add crocheted lacy trims.

4. A set of 100% cotton crocheted wash clothes look cute tied with a ribbon. Add a bar or two of high-quality soap and you’ll have a luxurious and practical gift. 

Talking about practical gifts, how about some kitchen accessories?

5. A teapot cozy would be a great one if your mom likes to have tea. This scalloped one seems to be popular on the Internet, but I’m sure there are other free patterns available too.

6. You can make a set of placemats. Here is a free pattern for easy and cute placemat decorated with a flower.

7. A market bag would be a useful gift. Check out this pattern.

8. The pair of decorative pillows shown bellow was a present for me from my mom. But this can work the other way too. You can buy a pair of small pillows and make lacy covers.

9. Or if you’d rather work with yarn, you can make a granny square accent cushion.  

10. I finish my list with a bookmark. It probably wouldn’t be much of a present on its own, but a pretty crocheted bookmark would be a lovely addition to a good book. 

I’d love to hear your ideas for crocheted Mother’s Day gifts.
