8 Handmade Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Book-Loving Mamas

Gift-giving is such a personal experience, especially when it comes to shopping for Mother’s Day. While there’s no shortage of gift ideas online, it can be a challenge to find something that feels as one-of-a-kind as the incredible mamas, sisters, and supportive mother figures in our lives. We’re here to help with a few ideas of handmade bookish gifts to show your love this Mother’s Day (and any day). 💛

Whether you’re shopping for your mother, a new mom, grandmother, sister, wife, aunt, or motherly figure, we hope something on this list resonates with you. And for anyone who experiences grief and sadness on Mother’s Day, we are holding extra space in our hearts for you. 

As a reminder, our handmade bookmarks at Page Petal are hand-pressed with real local flowers in Arizona, and we take great care to make them special just for you!   

1. Custom Photo Pressed-Flower Bookmark 

Custom Photo


This is our team's go-to gift! You'll choose a photo your mama loves and her favorite petals -- we’ll turn it into a beautifully unique bookmark. 🌸 Maybe it’s a photo of your mom with her furry friend, a picture of you together (so sweet!), or a view from a special vacation. Whatever it is, honor something she loves by turning it into a one-of-a-kind personalized bookmark she'll treasure forever.
