Cut two heart shaped pieces out of your (or mom's) favorite fabric.
Sew edges together, leaving a big enough opening to add scented potpurri. After filling, finish sewing up all sides.
Add you own message, poems, pictures etc., to personalize!
Note: You should place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt, pillow case, etc. so the paint doesn't leak through to the other side.

This "I Love You Jar" is the simplest idea of all, yet will make any mom or grandmother smile and feel very loved! (Aunts, babysitters, even teachers, would love this too.)
Just cut 1-inch-wide strips of colorful or patterned paper and children can write a reason why they love her on each strip. Bend the ends of the strip together to make little rings with the message on the inside. Fasten the ends together with stickers or a touch of glue, and place them in a glass jar.
Add a cute label to the front of the jar and a pretty ribbon, and you are done!
