So how do you begin to say thanks for the unconditional love, the teenage years taxi service, the chicken soup, the hugs, the wisdom, the school lunches, the slumber parties, the help with homework, and for always being there, at every stage. This year, we’re trying our hand at some DIY, and you know what, a homemade gift will probably turn out to be Mum’s favourite anyway! So if you need some inspiration, read ahead for some homemade Mother’s Day gift ideas…
Baking - Have some fun in the kitchen with a new recipe or an old favourite, and get your bake on for Mother’s Day! Pop it all in a cute jar or tin, and deliver it in person for ultimate brownie points.
Art from her little ones - It’s going to get messy, but getting the kids to make Mum their own special piece of art will be a gift she absolutely cherishes! Whether it’s a masterpiece on canvas, or a simple drawing to hang on the fridge, it will bring a smile to Mum’s face every time she sees it. So get the finger paints out, and good luck!
A photo of her kids - Does that photo on Mum’s dresser need updating? Then gather your siblings, all in your best Mum-approved outfits, get the camera out with a tripod or someone on hand to snap a pic, and say cheese! Print, frame, wrap, and you have a homemade Mother’s Day gift she will absolutely love.
Handmade ceramics - Sign yourself up to a local ceramics class, they’re so much fun! You get to learn a new skill, and come away with some gorgeous handmade goodies. Dedicate your new hobby to making something Mum would love - maybe a mug, a bowl, a soap dish or a plant pot. She will think you’re fabulously talented - or better yet, take her along to the class too!
Breakfast in bed - Whether it’s simple bacon & eggs, or an extravagant pile of pancakes, breakfast in bed (after a sleep in!) is appreciated by tired Mums the world over, and will make her feel super special!
A handmade card - It really can be as simple as a card, because the best way to thank your super hero Mum for everything she does is with words of course! So get your craft on and make your beautiful Mum a beautiful DIY Mother’s Day card, straight from the heart.
