DIY Handprint Oven Mitt- The Perfect Gift!

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure my kids won the grandparent lottery. They are so blessed to have such amazing grandparents who spoil them rotten! People often talk about how strong a mother or father’s love is, and I am pretty sure a grandparent’s love could be counted right up there too. Did you know that there is a special day set apart to honor grandparents? September 10th is Grandparents Day and I think it is definitely a day worth celebrating! And a cute and useful Handprint Oven Mitt is the perfect gift!

Just a suggestion…you could also tuck this gift idea away for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It is such a sweet idea and it is USEFUL! I like giving gifts that are practical as well as fun so that they don’t just end up gathering dust on a shelf somewhere. And since pretty much everybody has to eat, and cook at least a little, then a Handprint Oven Mitt is a gift that will be used often and bring a smile while being used.

DIY Handprint Oven Mitt, the perfect sentimental gift idea!To make this gift I found a nice matching set of kitchen towels and oven mitts at Bed Bath & Beyond and bought some fabric paint at Joanns. It was then as easy as dipping my kids’ hands into the paint and pressing them onto the oven mitt! And if you’ve ever wrestled with a two year old with his hands covered in paint, then you know how easy it is.  :)

DIY Handprint Oven Mitt, the perfect sentimental gift idea!I’ve even included a gift tag with a sweet poem to make your gift giving even easier! This poem is perfect for grandparents, mothers, and fathers. If you wanted to create your own gift tag you could easily adapt this gift idea for teachers too! Perhaps just change the wording up a bit and it is ready for teachers.

Printable Mother’s Day Gift Tag and Idea

Mother’s Day is in just a couple of weeks so I thought I would share a cute gift idea that might come in handy for those who are looking for gift ideas for several women. Whether it is for a group of friends, church ladies, visiting teaching, etc. this is an easy and fun gift that can be made in large quantities.  It has a beautiful message that reminds us that the sometimes seemingly ordinary service given by women is often Christlike; and that we should look to our Savior as the ultimate example of love and service.

I had a reader write in and ask me if I could somehow change the Christmas Towel to fit for Mother’s Day. She is in charge of putting together gifts for all the women in her church and loved the Christmas version, but of course it needed a new tag. So I changed it up slightly and created a new version for Mother’s Day.

Pretty hand towel (and chocolate!) with a printable gift tag for an easy and quick Mother's Day Gift IdeaI found these beautifully bright hand towels and tied the tag around with some pretty ribbon. And then of course, I had to slip in a little chocolate bar! Because this is Mother’s Day, and we are women, and any woman who says she doesn’t like chocolate is lying. :)

The towels I used were in a set of 4 and buying them that way vs. individual towels was much cheaper. The tag is available to download as a PDF and comes with two tags on a page.
