5 Homemade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
What can you do to show mom how much she means to you this year? How about a handmade gift! It comes from the heart and will be sure to put a smile on her face. Here are 5 homemade Mother’s Day gift ideas so that you can tailor your gifts to the women in your life:
For the mom who likes to be pampered:
Give mom some relaxation and beatification with homemade skin care. You can make scrubs, masks, or moisturizers using things from your kitchen. Sugar, lemons, honey or coconut oil are all great ingredients to include in your homemade gift! Combine your ingredients and add to a cute container. Put on a ribbon and label! If you’re running short on time, you can find nice savings on some of these premade items in order to pad your gift.
For the mom who loves surprises:
Mother’s Day coupons are the perfect way to give back to mom and let her feel loved throughout the year. You can design and print your own or search the internet. Some ideas for your coupons could be breakfast in bed, a day of relaxation where no one bothers her, kids do the chores one day, or family time with no electronics! You could also look for a discount on an event or restaurant in your town and surprise mom with some special time with you, the family or her best girlfriend!
For the mom that likes bling:
If you are crafty, you can make mom something she can treasure forever. How about a piece of handmade jewelry? A necklace, bracelet or earrings that she can wear and show off is a great idea for moms who like jewelry. This is a great Mother’s Day gift idea that is handmade and from the heart.
For the mom who likes to write:
If your mom likes writing or is just a doodler, a homemade journal is a handmade idea that your mother will love. You can purchase a plain hardcover notebook and decorate the cover. Covering it with pretty fabric is also an option. On the other hand, you could create your own journal by using cardstock or cardboard for the front and back covers and regular paper for the inside. Then, attach them together with holes and string or ribbon and decorate it as you please.
For the coffee/tea drinking mom:
Make mom a mug from a paint-your-own-pottery studio. Just take into consideration that you don’t take the mug home that day. You leave it there to dry and to get glazed. You can usually go back in a week or two to pick it up. If it’s close to Mother’s Day and waiting isn’t an option, you can make your own. Purchase a plain colored mug and paint markers that are made for writing on things like that. Be sure to warm mom that hand washing is probably the best idea for preserving this.
Mom is sure to love any gift made by her kids, no matter how young or old you may be. Make sure to put your heart in it and you will be sure to put a smile on her face.
