Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mothering Sunday is a day we celebrate our Mums, our Step Mums, our Mother figures. Here’s Habbydays Mother’s Day Gift Guide for our top products, perfect for Mums who craft!


1) Scissors

Every sewist loves a good pair (or 2, or 3) of scissors. I personally love the Inspira 8″ Bent Trimmers for precision cutting when I’m cutting out garments. These are some serious shears and they look really look the part too! If these are a bit too big or you’re looking for a smaller gift, check out number 2 on our list below.

2) More Scissors…

Well yes, they’re technically scissors but these little pairs make great gifts. Below I’ve featured 2 of my favourite go to small scissors, the Unicorn Embroidery scissors are sharp and perfect for intricate snipping but also so pretty with their rainbow effect and the unicorn design is such a fun spin on the traditional stork design. Whereas the Fiskars Micro-Tips are not as pretty, they are razor sharp and being sprung make it easier on your hands. They’re really comfortable to use with their soft grip and can easily be stored with the closure clip.

3) Crafty Coasters

Fancy adding a little something fun to a bigger gift, or a voucher? Our Crafty Coasters are a spot on addition to a bigger gift or a smaller budget. I love these and there are 6 designs to chose from, a great present to make the crafter in your life smile!

4) Habbydays Membership

Not sure what your Mum already has? Why not gift her a year’s worth of offers so that she can continue using your gift all year round. Our Cotton Membership card gives 15% off our products all year round, 15% off of classes plus more (t&c apply)

5) Thimble Organiser Pot

Great for a crafter’s desk, this generously sized thimble themed organiser adds a little something extra to a desk. Available in Rose Gold or Rainbow!

6) Rotary Mat, Ruler and Cutter Set

This set is a great starter set for crafters and quilters and it comes in a gorgeous mint colour! It really brightens up any space and coordinates so well. Need a bigger mat or fancy a similar set in a different colour, check our our cutting section.

7) Embroidery Kit

Our beautiful embroidery kits are perfect for beginners and experienced crafters. The kits include everything you need to get started including instructions. Grab a cuppa and sit down for a relaxing afternoon with one of these kits and you’ll soon have a beautiful piece to hang on your wall.

8) Handmade Craft Pouch

These storage pouches are a fun touch to any crafters arsenal. We can even add customisation (please email and allow 1 week for manufacture). Handmade in house. If you’re looking for more serious storage ideas, check out the storage section.

9) Iron on Transfers

Another great add on or budget friendly gift, iron on transfers. The transfers add such a great touch to me made garments. This one is our flocked black “Sewist” transfer, simply position on your garment/item and iron on according to the instructions provided. Please note that these are made to order.

10) And finally…. our ever popular Gift Vouchers
