With these three printables (two shown + bonus one), you can print out the tags at home. It’s perfect for making one gift, or maybe making several gifts for all of the women in your life. (Sign up below and you’ll gain access to our Free Digital Library, which includes the printables.)
This Mothers Day Garden Gift is also a great DIY craft for kids. They’ll love getting their hands dirty making the gardening kit. Then they can help mom in the garden and learn about growing food, too.
