Easy DIY Mother’s Day Gifts that Mom Will Love
Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Have you thought about what you might like to give her to show you care? Most people opt for gift cards, flowers, or store bought cards. Those are all great choices, but why not give mom a handmade gift this year? These DIY Mother’s Day gifts are a great way to show mom just how much you care this year. You can also combine a thoughtful handcrafted present with a small store bought gift too. There are no limits to what you might do to help Mom feel special on her day.
DIY Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Age
Whether you are giving a gift to your mom, or the kids are giving her one, there’s a DIY gift appropriate for every age and skill level, and all of them are guaranteed to make mom feel extra special! Remember to pay attention to hints and clues Mom might leave at this time of year.
Cards are a great place to start. Instead of buying your mom a generic card that a zillion other moms are also going to get, why not make your mom a card? It’s one of the easiest DIY Mother’s Day gifts out there, and it’s also the most special. Using something like Picmonkey, you can take a great image off of the internet and actually overlay your own text to make your very own card. The kids can even bust out the crayons and markers and make grandma a wonderful hand drawn card as well. My girls are amazing at making handcrafted cards. I have several special cards crafted by them that I will keep forever.
Picture books are wonderful, easy DIY Mother’s Day gifts. You can get picture book kits or just pick up a photo album and replace the standard photo pages with some beautiful paper. After your beautiful paper is in the album paste in pictures of the kids, the pets, family outings – anything that your mom will love – and then use a decoupage coating on the outside of the pages. It dries clear, so you’ll have a crafty picture book that your mom will love and that will last for years. Grandmas love these too so why not help your kids make one for Grandma?
Anything Involving Pipe Cleaners
This is obviously one for the kids. The easiest and most adorable DIY Mother’s Day gifts out there from kids always involve pipe cleaners. They can do everything with them from making flowers to writing words on banners. Their use is really only limited to you and your child’s imagination.
DIY Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be something you make. They can be anything that your mom has been wanting to see or do. Has your mom always wanted to see The Sleeping Giant? Does she talk about the time she went to Riverside Park in Guelph? Road trip! Maybe she’s always wanted to make your family tree, but she never got around to it. Research it all for her. Maybe she wants a picnic with her kids, or breakfast in bed.
Make Memories that Last Forever
DIY Mother’s Day gifts are great for more than showing you care. They’re also a great way to make memories that last. I don’t know about you, but the gifts that always stick with me are the ones that were made for me. I don’t need expensive gifts to feel loved. In fact, the homemade stuff is far more precious to me.
