Mother’s Day is fast-approaching, and it’s the perfect time to think about a special gift Mom will love. This memory jar is a great way to show Mom how much you truly cherish her.
This year, reflect on the plethora of memories and moments where she taught us how to be strong, roll with the punches, and most importantly, laugh it off! With Personal Creations’ memory jar ideas and printables, you can relive the good, the bad and the unforgettable times the two of you have shared. Decorate a jar or box from home, and print, customize and fill your jar with your printables. From heartfelt memories like “you taught me how to be brave by ___” to funny memories like “you made me laugh when ___” you can personalize each memory to you and your mom!
Mothers are amazing. They have been there for the good times, the bad times and all the times in-between. They have watched us take our first steps, first falls and they’ve even watched us go on our first dates! And through the years, our moms have shown us what it’s like to be strong, fearless and invincible.
This Mother’s Day, we reflect on the many memories and moments where mom has taught us how to be selfless, strong and kind. This collection of memory jar printables makes for the perfect DIY gift to remind your mom of all the special times you’ve shared.
While the big memories are remembered forever, those little moments—the small interactions between you and Mom—can sometimes be forgotten. So this year, start a new tradition by writing down all the great joys and memories from the years you’ve spent together. Begin by printing out some of our memory jar ideas and filling them out with your own memories and feelings. It’s the ultimate thoughtful gift!
How to Make Your Memory Jar
For your memory jar, choose a jar or box to hold your printables; it should be something your mom can put on her nightstand or desk. We suggest a clear mason jar, cookie jar or a vintage jewelry box that you can dress up. Once you have decided on a container, create your memory jar following our steps below.
- Find a jar of your choice and clean/empty it of other items.
- Print, label, cut out and glue to the front of the jar.
- Sign your name on the printable and write a meaningful message.
- Decorate with twine, glitter, buttons or fabric to customize your jar.
- Find a comfortable place and fill out your printables with personalized memories.
- Fill your jar with finished printables and gift to your mom!
Memory Jar Printables for Mom
Once you have created your memory jar and attached your label, you can begin filling out your memory jar printables. Print your favorite prompts, then cut them out and begin writing! We suggest setting aside a few hours for reflection and recollection. Write your memories from the past year, five years or a lifetime of memories! Create your jar how you want; after all, you know Mom the best.
