Show Mom you care on Mother's Day with a DIY gift

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 9th. We know you didn't forget. In case you haven't had the time to come up with the perfect Mother's Day gift, we wanted to remind you that it's the gifts you make yourself that make the most impact. Here are a few ideas to show Mom you care on Mother's Day with a DIY gift. 


Soothing Body Scrub


One of the greatest gifts you could give a Mom is some "me time". Something as simple as an hour to herself, with no responsibilities to anyone else, can be invaluable. To make her "me time" even more enjoyable, make her a batch of this Soothing Body Scrub and/or some DIY Bath Bombs. Mom can have a mini spa day without leaving the comfort of home. 


Wallpapered Recipe Box


If your Mom is a whiz in the kitchen, the recipe for a great DIY Mother's Day gift for her is this Wallpapered Recipe Box to hold all of her treasures. Whether Mom has accumulated decades of family recipes or you want to gather a few new ones online and write them out for her on these printable recipe cards and recipe card dividers, this DIY gift is sure to become a treasure chest of favourite family flavours. You don't need any woodworking skills, all you need is an unfinished wooden recipe box, craft knife, peel and stick wallpaper, 3D letters or stickers, glue and a ruler


Herb Garden Planter


If Mom has a green thumb, or would like to cultivate one, this Herb Garden Planter is a great way to start growing her own herbs, right on the kitchen counter. All you need to make it is a wooden planter box and some galvanized flower pots. You can finish it off with some black chalkboard paint or peel and stick chalkboard paper, so that Mom can write the names of her herbs right on the box.  

Fingerprint Butterfly Mugs


These Fingerprint Butterfly Mugs are the perfect way for kids to help get their little hands (and fingerprints) on a DIY gift for Mom. All you'll need is a plain white mug, washable-when-wet craft paint, a small paint brush, and a thumb!


New Mom Survival Kit


If you know a new Mom, or mom-to-be, this New Mom Survival Kit is the perfect way to personalize a great gift for her. Choose or make a Mother's Day Card and a few items that you know she will love and could use. A few ideas to get you started could be a cozy pair of pajamas or slippers, a silk sleep mask and maybe a chewable teething necklace (for her to wear and the baby to chew).


We hope these suggestions for DIY Mother's Day gifts help to make Mom's day!
