Mom Survival Kit
Let’s face it, every Mom could use a break now and then - and this kit in a jar can be the perfect pick-me-up. Fill a mason jar with some of Mom’s favorite things - hand lotion, chocolates, a special scent - and print a ‘Just for Mom’ label. You can get creative and make your own, or use this one from Classy Clutter.
Scented Bath Bombs
The kids can really get their hands dirty when it comes to this DIY Mother’s Day gift idea. The recipe for these fizzy, scented bath bombs (from Play Dough To Plato) is pretty forgiving, so it’s great for young kids who are just learning to measure stuff out. Plus, this gift allows Mom to take some time to pamper herself. I’d say that’s a win-win!
Mini Photo Magnets
Grab your scissors, some magnets, and a few special photos and you’re ready to make these adorable mini photo magnets. Just for Mom, you can use these magnets to display personalized messages, love notes, or Mother’s Day coupons. Sundae Sins walks you through the process - and even shows you how to make a mounting board to display your hard work.
Personalized Tea Tags
If Mom loves nothing more than relaxing with her favorite brew, this DIY Mother’s Day gift will definitely be her cup of tea. (See what I did there?) Use this tea tags tutorial from Lia Griffith to create your very own tags just for Mom. We like the idea of using each tag to share something that you think makes your Mom great. She’ll be reminded of just how much you love her everytime she sits down for a cup.
