Why a Homemade Gift?

A homemade gift shows that you put thought, and effort into making the gift itself! It shows that you took time out of the day, and set aside time to make something just for your mom. Homemade gifts are unique, and each one is special. I hope that this list of DIY gifts inspires you to go make your own gift for your mom this Mother's Day!

Gift Idea #1."Homemade Mother's Day Mugs"

A homemade mug is a spectacular, easy, and cute gift to give your mother! Especially if your mom is a coffee or tea drinker! This way she'll be able to use the gift you give her whenever she drinks her daily dose of caffeine, and it'll be a sweet reminder that's like a hug in a mug each and every morning.

Gift Idea #2. "Spa and Pampering in a Jar"

This next DIY project is another quick, and thoughtful gift! Mothers do so much for us, and we definitely don't show them enough appreciation for everything that they do.

Well, a "Spa and Pampering in a Jar" gift is one of many ways you can begin and try to show that you are thankful for everything that your mother does.

Additional idea:

You could even put a gift card to her favorite nail salon, or restaurant inside of the jar as well for an added surprise.

Gift Idea #3. "Table Top Herb Garden"

If your mom loves to cook, then this is the perfect gift for her!

Fresh herbs are delicious for cooking, and are delightful plants to smell in general. She's sure to love this simple and useful gift!

It's simply made by reusing and recycling an old pallet, and some mason jars.


If you don't have an old pallet you could build a holder from leftover wood from other projects, or find a pallet at a craft store such as Hobby Lobby.


You could just give your mom the mason jar plants without the pallet holder, and decorate the jars with little labels and designs.

Gift Idea #4. "Slippers Gift Idea"

Similar to Gift Idea #1., but still a great idea. The slippers add a warm touch, and are sure to be a cozy and sweet gift!

You could pair the slippers with the homemade mug gift idea, and together you have the perfect, cozy, gift pair!

The faux, floral, flowers that are glued on in the tutorial could be replaced with handmade paper flowers, buttons, feathers, etc. add anything that makes it more personal to you and your mom.

Make sure to include a photo of you and your mom in the frame when you give it to her! (Winks)
