At a loss for a Mother's Day gift this year? Head over to for some original, inspired and handmade gifts!

Here are some of my favorite Etsy items that would make your Momma very happy this Mother’s Day!  My search for Etsy Mother’s Day gifts began with me looking at their handmade cards.  I love making my own cards and I was all set to make one for my mother as she was visiting us from Florida (my hubby decided to surprise me and my mom coming was my gift!).

Being pregnant and cleaning the house led to me sluffing off on the home-made card idea.  I had to settle for a beautiful (but expensive) card from Papyrus–“A card is $7?” my hubby kept asking after he glanced at the receipt.  Next time, when there is only a week to go and I haven’t started my homemade card, I will be heading over to Etsy to buy a creative handmade card for my mom!  From original designs to handmade scrapbooking techniques, you’ll find every type of card at Etsy!

Spend your money on American craftsmanship and creativity with this beautiful Mother's Day card from Etsy!

So if you’re going to spend $7 for a beautiful Mother’s Day card, why not buy from an original artist right here in the US!  Check out Etsy shop RowHouse14 for this beautiful “mom” card!  Shop owner Heidi used an original photo of pink tulips from Baltimore’s Sherwood Gardens printed on white linen cardstock and hand cut and scored.  The prefect card and keepsake for your momma!  Also, check out LetsAllMakeBelieve shop, where a brightly colored hand painted bouquet adorns a modernly gray Mother’s Day card!

Need a beautiful reminder to keep in touch with your mom?  This darling, 5×7 “call your mom” screenprint comes in a variety of colors and can be framed in white for a sweet conversation piece in the living room, that grandma is sure to smile at!  Check it out at rickathdesign shop for only $10, and take a look at Alissa’s other sweet and inspiring prints, like Scarlett’s signature quote “Tomorrow is another day!”

These handmade and naturally scented soaps look like sculptures! Perfect gift for the eclectic, global Momma!

Does your mom love decorative soaps?  Get her something much more original and unique than the standard butterfly or heart-shaped soaps, with these gorgeous Buddah head soaps that actually look like a sculpture!  Head over to the SoapRhapsodyshop on Etsy, and choose among an artistic assortment of handmade soaps.  The green Buddah is scented with White Tea and Ginger, a soothing blend of Bergamot, Lemon Peels and Green Daylilies, Ginger, Nutmeg, Warm Musk, Hyacinth, Freesia and Peony–mmmm.  For only $12, your mother will truly show off this unconventional (and vegan-friendly) soap!  While checking out the Buddahs, take a look at shop owner Connie’s other original designs, like: dragons, sea shell soaps that look like the real thing, and even choo-choo train and Harry Potter soaps to encourage the kids to wash their hands!

Finally, check out these adorable “peg dolls” from Etsy shop HandPaintedHeartwork!  “Peg dolls” are all the rage, popping up as wedding cake toppers and adorning kids bookshelves and sophisticated mantles alike!  Shop owner, Monica, puts a new spin on the trend with this super-cute collection to make the perfect personalized Mother’s Day gift!  You can personalize every aspect of this Mother’s Day set, with hair color, skin color and even specific outfits!  How cute would it be to have the kids “dressed” up in their Easter outfits or a favorite dress?  This could also be modified for Grandma, just send a “conversation” to the shop owner.

Next Mother’s Day forgo the standard rose bouquet for one of these hand-crafted unique gifts!  Happy Mother’s Day Mommas!
