Flowers are a staple Mother’s Day gift, but there’s no reason to settle for a plain glass vase for Mom. Why not make the vase part of the gift too? Abby from Just a Girl and Her Blog created these pretties with $2 vases from Wal-mart and vintage wallpaper. These vases are so lovely you don’t even have to put them away when the flowers are gone!

We’ve all heard the jokes about how women love their shoes. If your mom is one of those ladies who needs a separate closet to house her shoe collection, then this gift idea is for you! Stacie from Stars for Streetlights dressed up a pair of Payless flats by adding a bow made from an old scarf. Aren’t they pretty?

Monogram Coffee Mug

If your mom is a regular coffee or tea drinker, she will love waking up with a pretty monogrammed mug like this one by Andrea at The Cottage Market. Andrea simply added an initial to a decorative mug with a porcelain paint marker and then cured it per package directions. She says, “Add some yummy tea bags…some fresh coffee beans…maybe a vintage spoon and wrap pretty…a perfect gift for anyone!”

Your sun-loving mom will look fab walking across the beach with this stylish chevron tote from Jaime at That’s My Letter. Jaime’s tote features a fun navy chevron print with fuchsia monogram, drop cloth canvas lining, and rope handle. In all honesty, I would choose Jamie’s bag hands-down over her inspiration from Pottery Barn Teen!

Now I know I am not the only Momma around who likes dangly earrings. The longer the better I say! Over at Infarrantly Creative you can see how I made, not one, but six pairs of pretty chandelier drop earrings for only $15 total. That’s two pairs of earrings for Mom, Mom-in-law, and… yourself! HA!

With Mother’s Day just over a week away, I’m kicking off a few days of fabulous Mother’s Day gift ideas – knock-off style, of course {wink}. First up, we have some pretty rope bracelets created by Kim from Made In A Day. I am in love with the chunky cording, bright colors, and little details that Kim included in all her bracelets. With summer right around the corner, you can’t go wrong with these for Mom!

Newspaper Print Dress

Amy from Mod Podge Rocks used a little color to mimic a newspaper print dress found in the Ballard Designs catalog.  I love the paper she chose! It reminds me of a vintage dress worn in the 50s.

Flower Cake Stand

What do you get when you combine a candle holder, a cake pan, and silk flowers from the Goodwill? A super cheap, designer-inspired cake stand perfect for displaying delectable desserts! Morena over at Morena’s Corner made this easy peasy dessert stand by simply gluing together her three items and then spray painting them for a uniform finish. The flowers are beautiful for Mother’s Day, but you could customize your stand for any occasion by using theme-appropriate items. Think rattles for a baby shower, toys for a kids birthday party…
