How can apparel decorators use their equipment to create Mother’s Day gifts?

What’s a better way to show Mom how much she is loved on Mother’s Day than a creative, personalized gift?

Custom T-shirts, sweatshirts, and other apparel items top the list of great gifts for Mom. Use heat transfer paper, sublimation, or direct-to-garment printing to fashion one-of-a-kind wearables with ease.

That being said, have you thought about what non-apparel items you can create with the equipment you already have?

Do you have a laser printer? Hard surface paper works great on compact mirrors and mugs. Give that hardworking mama a coffee cup reminder that her efforts are appreciated. Reward that fabulous female in your life with a “Greatest Fur Mom” plaque-you know it’s a hard job keeping those pups wrangled. Grab a tote bag or neck scarf and sprinkle it with awesome using heat transfer paper.

Do you love dye-sub but don’t know which sublimation blanks to choose? Canvas pillowcases and tote bags are always excellent options for snarky sayings guaranteed to give that spunky matriarch a charming outlet for her spirit. Another fun idea is to customize keepsake boxes with Mom or Grandma in mind. Take your creativity a step further by adding personalized letters or stylized monograms.

Is Grandma more of a coffee drinker? You can’t go wrong with the ever-popular coffee mug. Add some flair to other drinkware options like travel mugs and water bottles. Is mama on the go? Customize a keychain or luggage tag to provide a constant reminder that she is loved!

Have a cherished picture of the family that Mom just loves? Sublimate her favorite faces on an aluminum panel or piece of jewelry. A bezel necklace depicting the whole family is a sure-fire way to warm her heart.

Looking for a literal way to wrap Nana in love? A soft throw allows her to surround herself with the affection of all her grandbabies. The best part is that you do not need a large heat press to create it. This throw can be done using a standard 16″ X 20″ press.

Regardless of Mom’s personality or taste, any of these item options can be enhanced with photographs or a special quote to create a unique gift. Put a little heart and imagination into whatever you do and make the day unique for that special matriarch in your life.
