Five creative DIY gift ideas for Mother’s Day

Handmade gifts are easy, affordable, and from the heart.

When Mother’s Day rolls around it can be tough to find the perfect gift for her. Most moms would rather want their kids to spend on themselves than buying a Mother’s Day present because it is just the thought that counts for them. Here are five DIY gift ideas with an extra dose of thoughtfulness for your mother.

Personalized keychains

Personalized keychains are perfect for keeping all the keys together for your busy or forgetful mom. Create a personalized keychain with images of her favorite people or things. With different shapes and styles, this unique gift idea will bring a smile to her face, every time she picks up her keys.

Bouquet of tassel flowers

Artificially made tassel flowers are a great way to brighten up your mom’s day. You just need different color yarns, green pipe cleaners, and a hot glue gun or fabric glue, a serving fork, and scissors. Wrap the yarn around the fork and pipe cleaner around 25 to 30 times. Twist the pipe around the end of the yarn and cut the loops with scissors. Use a fork to fray the yarn and trim the stray ends. Fluff the top of the flower and repeat the process to create a bouquet.

Spa day

Arrange an affordable spa right at home for your mom to help her relax on Mother’s Day. Create some homemade soap, scented bath bombs and throw them in. The recipe for bath bombs is very DIY-able and you can also arrange some fuzzy slippers and a bathrobe to complete the spa day vibe.

Painted terra cotta flower pots

You can also give some of your mom’s old plant pots a creative facelift with a personal touch. Gather pots, craft paint, and varieties of plants that your mom loves, for a practical and thoughtful gift that she can use long after Mother’s Day is over. This custom version of plant pots has greater utility and is also cost-effective.

Personalized journal

If your mom loves to write and record memories, the perfect DIY gift for your mom would be a personalized journal with a special photo on the album cover, to keep it close to her heart. She can use the journal to note down everyday stories, goals, and childhood memories.

Pamper your mom with these creative and homemade gifts to make her day memorable.
