Mother’s Day Gift Ideas You Can Make Yourself
If you’ve forgotten, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10th which means if you haven’t planned what you’re gonna get Mom or the woman you love as a Mom, you better get going!
Our friends at She Knows offered some simple to make Mother’s Day gifts that won’t break the bank and that you can make on your own or have your kids help you make for Mom:
Breakfast in bed– I think we can all remember a time when we climbed the stairs with tray in hand balancing juice and eggs for mom on Mother’s Day. Why not keep that tradition alive having your kids serve your mom breakfast in bed?
Homemade candles– Jazz up some plain pillars with decals or specialty candle paper for gift candles almost too pretty to burn.
Homemade trail mix– Mix granola and dried fruit to create a homemade gift of trail mix that is personalized to her taste.
Embellished sleep mask– Give a plain sleep mask some flair with jewels. Use glue and glitter paint to attached the jewels and help mom get some much deserved sleep.
Personalized stationery– Homemade stationery sets are a great Mother’s Day gift idea and can be made and personalized easily by tearing edges, stamp or by monogramming in Mom’s favorite hues.
Stenciled linens– Washable fabric paint gives napkins or tea towels a personalized elegance, especially when decorated with your children’s hand prints for Mother’s Day.
Drawer sachets– Small squares of fabric sewn together in a little pillow and filled with lavender or mom’s favorite potpourri makes a Mother’s Day gift that is as practical as it is sweet.
Sewing kit– Fill a mason jar with needles, notions and spools of thread and top lid with a stuffing-filled square of fabric to hold pins.
Scrapbook or photo album- Turn childhood memories into a keepsake arrangement by creating a scrapbook or photo album personalized with photos and handwritten notes from your kids.
