Mother’s Day is coming close, and you still don’t have any idea what to get for the most important person in your life? Well, here is a thought: why not make her something instead?
In fact, there is a big chance that she will appreciate this more if it is something you made yourself. As opposed to anything else you could have bought at a shop, this will show more of your feelings towards her, which will make her incredibly happy.
1. Cupcake Bouquet
Your mother is the loveliest being on earth, which makes her fully deserving of something sweet. On Mother’s Day, you get flowers and sweets to the one that brought you into this world, but why not do both with just one gift?
You just need the cupcakes, a flowerpot, a styrofoam ball placed in the pot, and toothpicks. Attach the cupcakes to the styrofoam until you get a bouquet, and you have the perfect gift.
2. Homemade Cookies in a Jar
Feeling creative? Try to make some chocolate chip cookies or some Oreo cookies that you place in a nice, personalized jar. This will up her snack game, not to mention that she will love them even more since you made them.
If you follow the recipe right, then it will turn into the perfect gift. Although she will probably love them just the same even if they turn out disastrous.
3. Homemade Bath Bombs
Does your mom enjoy the occasional bubble baths? Well, why not try making her some bath bombs? The chances are that you already have most of the ingredients at home: baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, and Epsom salt for the dry ingredients
Water, coconut oil, and essential oil for the wet ingredients. Mix these separately, and then together – in the end, you can mold them into the perfect, round bomb.
4. Bake Her a Mother’s Day Cake
Perhaps the best thing that you can do for your mother on this special day is to bake her a cake. Even if you are no Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen, there are countless recipes on the Internet that will help you through the process. All you have to do is follow the steps mentioned in the recipe.
Your mother will love the fact that you actually went out of your way to bake her a cake yourself – a cake packed with your love and feelings.
And if your cake doesn't turn out as expected, you can always get her one of our best selling Mother's Day Cake instead and say it was baked by you ;)
5. Knitted Scarf
Are you any good at knitting? In that case, you might want to try making her a scarf. This is actually something she should be able to enjoy for quite a long time.

7. DIY Tablet Holder
If your mom loves to cook and often reads her recipes from her tablet, then we have the best idea for you. You can make her a tablet holder from something as simple as a cutting board. Make a support at the back so that it stays upright and create a bottom part at the front where the table can sit.
This way, your mom will no longer have to struggle each time she decides to check on her recipes.
8. Antique Cup Candles
Does your mom often hold tea parties with her friends? In that case, you may want to make some antique cup candles. Sure, regular candles can work just as well – but if you have the opportunity to make them special, why shouldn’t you?
Find a set of teacups or coffee cups that she might like, and then mix the candlewax. For a better edge, you might want to add 2-3 drops of her favorite essential oil there as well; it will make things even more amazing for her.
9. Friendship Bracelets
Do you have the kind of relationship that reminds everyone of Gilmore girls? In that case, you should cement your relationship by making twin bracelets. If the bracelet alone wouldn't be enough, the fact that both of you are connected through those friendship bracelets will make her emotional.
There are many easy patterns that you may go for. So, even if you are not an expert when it comes to crafting bracelets, you will certainly be able to make her something she will love. Plus, it is the thought that counts for her.
10. Craft a “Reasons Why I Love You” Flip Book
Now, this is a gift idea that will make your mom enthusiastic to the moon and back. All you need is a cardstock to do the writing on, a hole punch, a jump ring or binder, a pen to write with, and perhaps some pictures. Write the things that you love most about your mom, making a mini book from it. For extra effect, add some pictures of you two.
11. Coffee and Sugar Scrub
There is nothing more relaxing than a scrub at the end of a long day. If your mom loves coffee, then you might want to make a body scrub using sugar, coffee, and almond oil. She will have some spa time just for herself and she will come out of the bathroom so happy because the sweet scent of coffee will be surrounding her.
