May is right around the corner, which means it’s about that time that we celebrate those wonderful women in our lives. A couple weeks ago I was trying to come up with a new Mother’s Day gift idea. You see a lot of candy/chocolate gifts (no complaint here with that one) flower gift ideas, coupon books, etc. I wanted to come up with something a little different, but something that mothers would use. I finally came up with the idea of giving chapstick or lip balm. We all use it, and I’m sure some of us misplace ours quite often, so I figured that a Mother’s Day Chapstick Printable would be a great idea!
The hard part was coming up with a saying for the tag. It took me a little bit, but I finally figured it out, and I’m pretty pleased with the phrase I chose. Next, I got to work creating a fun tag to use. I knew I wanted something that you could attach the chapstick directly to, but I thought it would be good to have a tag so you could attach it to a bag of treats, a fun questionnaire, or another craft. Here is what I created!
I went ahead and created 3 different color options. Above is the ‘peach confetti’ Mother’s Day Chapstick tag. I also created a light pink polka dot tag, and a simple black and white tag. The black and white tag would be great to print onto any color cardstock or it would be really cute printed onto Kraft paper.
I thought this gift idea would be perfect for the Primary children to give to their Mother’s on Mother’s Day, but it would also be great for YW or even school classes!
Mother’s Day Chapstick Gift Idea
You obviously will need chapstick for this gift idea. You can purchase chapstick in bulk. Here is a 24-Pack of ‘Chap-Ice’ from Amazon. When you purchase the larger pack the price ends up being .41 cents per tube. Great price!
I know most of us in Primary don’t have a huge budget, so .41 cents per tube might still be too expensive. No worries, try making your own! This would be great for Activity Day girls, and they could probably pass it off in their Faith in God booklet. Talk to your Activity Day leader, and ask if the girls would like to make lip gloss/chapstick for the mothers. Then have them do this the week of Mother’s Day! Here are a couple of great recipes that you could use:
DIY Lip Gloss Recipe from Your Home Based Mom (she even includes a great Activity Day Lesson!)
Other Gift Ideas
The chapstick gift would be great all on it’s own, but I usually like the Primary children to add a little something to give to their Mother’s. In my picture above, I attached the tag to a box/bag of Hershey kisses. I also saw this adorable “Mother’s Day Newspaper” printable, from Martha Stewart, that would be great!
You could also attach the chapstick to a bag of ‘Riesens’ and use my “10 Riesens I Love my Mom” printable, HERE, that I shared last year.
I love Mother’s Day questionnaires, they are always so funny!
What are you planning to do for Mother’s Day? Do you usually have the Primary children make something for their Mothers?
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my Mother’s Day Chapstick gift idea. I would love to hear if you use my tags, so be sure to leave me a comment.
Have a great day!
