I have just been asked to help for my daughters mother's day stall at school. They set up tables like a shop and the little ones can do some shopping for their mums and grandmas.

I would like to donate some more goodies for the table. I already have my mothers day tags and coasters, but now I need some more ideas that are super quick as there are lots of kids and not much time left.
Many of these mums are into fitness and like modern things. Many do not necessarily like the typical flowers or gifts they perceive as having little use even if given with the best of intentions. I want to help these young ones with something their mum would love or use
Any ideas for really quick things I can make?

Thanks everyone for these ideas they are brilliant. I am going to make as much as i can and will post some pics when i am done.

Kudos to you for helping out a good cause. I know people seem to love bookmarks and FSL things like angels (if the school will allow them), napkin rings. Let us know what sells. I'm sure our folks who have stalls would love to have any info that helps them.

These are all great ideas. Thanks. Always the way you forget ideas right when you need then the most.

The only thing I can think of not on your list are cord wraps - you might need to print a picture so they know what it is. Links to 2 freebies below (Creative Machine embroidery at Lindee G - her site changed so I'll add both links - to the coupon code and to the item) and Embroidery Garden. EG is a vinyl one but the Lindee ones can be made from any cloth scraps.

Lindee's link as I think there's some problem with the link from CME but you need the code to get it free

Jerrilyn suggested what I would have...nail file holders...I did some a bit ago...Rescuer made over 100 of them for breast cancer...happy to send you the file if you decide you want make them...I made some for a local rescue...they were a big can do many in one hooping and they take less than 10 minutes...

Good idea. Thanks

Good answers given already. The only other I can think of are nail file holders and mug rugs. You are very special for doing this for the little ones.

I had forgotten about nail file holders. I have a design too that I have yet to use? Thank you

Well my suggestions have already been given. What you make might depend on prices they will charge the kids, you don't want to spend $5 making an item which they will charge only $2 for.

So true. I am trying to make things so they are affordable for the kids. I am using things I have on hand and want to use up so it is really only costing in time for me. I will be assisting on the stall on the day so I can help suggest prices too.

Zippy phone bags? Notepad holder, tissue holder for purse, USB holder(can combine with key ring). FSL angel - from a child extra special.
