Now that Easter has past, my brain has immediately gone into Mother’s Day mode.
I’ve been sitting here all day thinking of what to get the lovely women in our lives and then it hit me – they all had something in common – they are all crafty moms!
My mom, my step-mom, and my grandmother are all crafters. My mother-in-law tries to be and wants to be craftier.
So, why not get them crafty type gifts?
But here’s the thing – one craft does not fit all. In fact, each of the women in my life have a specific craft to which they enjoy and are good at.
My mother – wood crafts.
My grandmother – quilting and crocheting.
My step-mom – photography and scrapbooking.
Sure, I could make them each very specific gift baskets filled with craft supplies but that would require time, money and hope that I don’t gift them something they already have.
I mean, I don’t want to get grandma the same colored yarn that she already owns a stockpile of!
And yes, I could go for a gift card to a craft store but crafts are my jam (if you haven’t noticed) and I want to give them something that is as unique as each of their personalities and crafty styles are.
A subscription to Bluprint.
What is Bluprint?
I am so glad you asked! Bluprint is a subscription site that contains a mix of craft tutorial videos and editorial content.
In addition to their digital content, they offer physical Bluprint Boxes which come in nine varieties – Sewing, Quilt, Knit, Cake, Embroider, Crochet, Watercolor, Colored Pencil or Drawing. These boxes include everything mom needs to make a craft from start to finish.
If the woman in your life has ever wanted to strengthen her craft skills, baking skills or really anything in the DIY space, this is the PERFECT gift for her!
In fact, a recent survey conducted by Bluprint found that seventy-five percent of adults in the US currently participate in at least one creative activity. Chances are mom is one of them, and Bluprint is the perfect gift this Mother’s Day.
How much does Bluprint cost?
Now, I know if you’ve landed here as a Mother’s Day gift idea, chances are, you have a budget in mind. I know I do especially since I have several women to purchase gifts for.
With that being said, I am happy to say that Bluprint is very budget friendly.

The Bluprint boxes range in price depending on the type of box you select, supplies, etc.
What makes this a great gift idea for crafty moms or crafters in general?
Aside from the fact you are giving mom or the crafters in your life endless craft ideas, you are giving them the ability to turn a hobby into a side-hustle or business.
As someone who has turned their hobby and passion (crafting and writing) into a business (my blog and my books) I can tell you, this is something I wish I had when I first started!
I’ve always been a crafter but over the years, when I’ve wanted to learn about more crafts or DIY projects, I’ve had to spend countless hours scouring the web to learn.
With something like Bluprint, I could have saved all the time, energy and money.
My Honest Thoughts
I’ve always been honest when I share my opinions on the site and I can honestly tell you, I recommend Bluprint.
I had the opportunity to check out their videos and website and I am so impressed.
My biggest issue was being overwhelmed (in a good way) and not really sure where to start.
I immediately started thinking of all the things I wanted to learn and as I spent time browsing the topics and trending videos, I found my list getting longer and longer.
I ended up landing on a video that teaches you how to make an indoor mason jar herb garden.
The reason I chose this video was because my husband and I have been talking about growing our own herbs but since we have 2 large dogs that would eat our herbs, we wanted a way to keep them up and away from them.
TA DA – an indoor mason jar herb garden it is.
The best part is, the video makes it so easy and shows step-by-step on how to do it.
Isn’t this just so cute?
So, here’s the thing, this is the best gift for crafty moms, crafty people or anyone that enjoy DIY projects.
I highly recommend gifting a Bluprint subscription and I can only hope that I receive one this Mother’s Day!
