Delightful Order came up with this cute idea. I love the seed packet holders, they read "a mother plants seeds of LOVE, HOPE, JOY!"
Extreme Domestication just mod podged some photos onto wood blocks to create this beautiful and easy gift.
Mom's love photos of their kids and Grandmom's love photos of their grandkids. So making a gift using photos of your kids is a great idea. Kim from The Inadvertent Farmer made this photo project.
Printables make a quick and easy gift. Just print and place in a frame. I'm wondering if you could change the colors to match your Mom's decor. Or paint the frame the same bold color as that of the letters.

I've seen a couple of other great ideas on Pinterest. Here are the links in case you'd like to check them out.
As for what I'm making for my Mom and Mother in law. Well, that'll be a secret for now since my Mom reads my blog (hi Mom!). But I will say that she doesn't use Pinterest so if you check out the links, you'll see one of them that I'm using as my inspiration.
