What mother does not love a handmade gift from her son or daughter? A unanimous “They all do!”
And, the truth is, while many of us are adept at social media and can help mum out with a few pointers in her technological life, our crafting skills barely stretch to gift-wrapping!
Here is where the perfect solution comes in… CUSTOM-made and personalised gifts!
These days, anything personalised, or custom made doesn’t need to cost the earth and while we’re in an age where you can have most things printed on pretty much anything, but really, how many mugs does mum need of the grandkids or you at graduation?
Now with the bar set a little higher because personalised & custom gifts have been around for a while, it is why the ‘traditional arts and crafts’ are coming to save you!
At Coach House Forge, we think we have the perfect Mother’s Day gift ideas that will keep you in favour for a lot longer than that printed t-towel you had made with the children’s primary school drawings on it (we all still love that t-towel!).
Instead have us make something with your own custom message, it could become one of her most treasured possessions, and it will certainly last for generations because it’ll be forged in metal with a whole lot of love.
Here are some ideas to get you going, to make your mother feel the most special and loved mum this Mother’s Day.
Our set of 5 metal flowers are perfect for an all-year flower arrangement.

Trinket, Catch-all or Candle Bowl
Bowls are always useful! We have a selection of small bedside bowls for the odd bit of jewellery, up to larger and more extravagant centrepiece bowls, the kind of thing you’d see in the centre of the dinner table when you visit mum on the weekend.
IDEA: Stamp the dates of yours and the children’s birthday on the bowl.

Our traditional hand forged bookmarks are perfect for keeping mum’s place in that latest romantic novel, well-loved family favourite book, Bible, or cookbook.
IDEA: Stamp the mushiest message of how much you love your Mum on the bookmark so when she opens up her book, she’ll be reminded of how much you love her. “To a mum whose love knows no bounds. I love you so much!”

A simple keyring but with a reassuring weight is one of the nicest things to feel in your hand. The private bit of your relationship in mum’s hand is all she needs to be reassured of your loving bond.
IDEA; Stamp Mum ♥ with a simple heart and name simply says she is your mum and you love her. What more needs to be said?
