Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and that means one thing, spending time and showing affection towards the woman who brought you into this world. What else can show how much you love your mom as much a gift that you created yourself in your valuable free time? With 3D printers turning up in more and more homes, 3D printed gifts are becoming ever more popular.  Just the fact that you took the time to make her something, will likely warm her heart to a greater extent than just buying something at the store.

If you forgot to buy mom something this year, can’t think of the perfect gift, or feel that a simple bouquet of flowers is too cliche, then here are some 3D printable options that she is sure to love.

Drooloop Super 3D Printed Flowers (Download)
If you are feeling really adventurous then these are a perfect gift for mom.  The Drooloop flowers are designed by Mark Peeters on Thingiverse. These are not just simple 3D prints.  Mark uses a special technique to create these beautiful works of art.  The awesome thing about Peeter’s creations are that you don’t necessarily need to be a world-renowned artist to create these beauties.  The complete set of directions can be found here.

There are lots of additional options you can find, simply by searching Thingiverse for “Mother’s Day”.  I hope you have found these models at least a little bit useful.  If you decide to print any of them out, please take a picture or two, and post them in the Mother’s Day forum thread at 3DPB.com
