A Gift for SuperMom

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… !!

Ok, not sure where I was going with that ūüėČ ¬†Actually, I’ve got pregnancy on the brain. ¬†No, no, I’m NOT pregnant. ¬†But it sure does seem like I am hearing about more than the usual number of friends and acquaintances announcing they are expecting or showing up with new babies. ¬†It feels like it goes in cycles – have you noticed that? ¬†Most of the time it’s not on your radar (unless you yourself are pregnant then baby and pregnancy cues are EVERYWHERE) then all of a sudden it feels like everyone is pregnant all at once? ¬†I call it Baby Season and it is in full strength lately.

Super Mom Gift Box New Baby Mothers Day

The most recent announcement unexpectedly came from one of my good friends in North Carolina. ¬†It was also her birthday last week so I figured I would go a little bigger than the Starbucks gift card I had already picked up and put together a fun pregnancy gift box. ¬†I really wanted it to be unique and I was stumped. ¬†I think I covered every aisle at Michael’s at least three times trying to come up with something fun and creative, thinking the entire time about what (in my opinion) is uniquely her. ¬†And finally – light bulb! ¬†See, she has two small boys who are really into Power Rangers and super heroes, and when her husband was deployed last year the tagline on all of her photos was “daddy went away to be a superhero.” ¬†Why not go with a SuperMom theme?!

Once I had the theme, the rest of it came together easily.

Supermom Tshirt Tank Top DIY
SuperMom tank top – check! (yes, I did the logo myself! ¬†I’ll do a tutorial on that soon! ¬†I found this really cool sun-activated dye at Michael’s….)

Super Mom Keep Calm Double Wall Cup and Straw
SuperMom double wall drink cup with token “keep calm” saying – check!
I did a quick search for clipart for the crown then used my handy-dandy Silhouette machine to cut out the vinyl. ¬†Simple as that. ¬†I always use “outdoor” vinyl on projects like these and as long as you wash the cups on the top rack of the dishwasher ONLY, it holds up pretty well.

Super Mom Funny Wall Hanging
Funny SuperMom Wall Decor – check!
Wall Plaque UnfinishedSupermom Super Tired Wall Decor Vinyl
Quick mini-tutorial for you on this one. ¬†Unfinished scrolly wood plaque from Michael’s. ¬†(love those things!) ¬†Paint it. ¬†Superman logo and lettering in vinyl, courtesy of my Silhouette machine, of course. ¬†Put it all together and ta-da! ¬†Under $5 and probably less than 10 minutes.

Pregnancy Countdown Blocks Teal and Grey
It wouldn’t be complete without one of my signature Pregnancy Countdown Blocks, right? (I have decided to retire these in the Etsy shop. ¬†If you want one you better order it quick before I run out of stock!)

I also included a couple of other fun items
Supermom Gift Box Nail Polish Nail File Pamper Supermom Gift Box To Do List Notebook

printed out a funny meme that fit the theme, and created a quick card using the same SuperMom logo.

Supermom Pregnancy Gift Box

So there you have it – a Super-fun gift for the SuperMom in your life! ¬†I’m thinking this would make a great Mother’s Day gift, don’t you think? ¬†(which, by the way, is only a week and a half away – eek!)

    Cute gift idea! And, yes, it does go in cycles. When I had my flower shop, not only did births go in spurts, but it seemed to cycle in all boys or all girls…it was so funny. Thanks for sharing and co-hosting at the #HomeMattersParty – we appreciate you! ūüôā
