Mother’s Day is just around the corner…so if you haven’t picked up a present for Mom yet, why not try one of these easy handmade (and budget-friendly) gifts for her?  DIY with love and have fun!


“A mother understands what a child does not say.”  Jewish proverb


o Cook Mom’s favorite breakfast.

She’ll definitely love it!


o Or surprise her with a special home-cooked brunch with the family.

“The family that eats together, stays together”!


o Gift her with a photo board.

Create a nice memory board of some of her most favorite photos using whatever you have at home (e.g., reusable cardboard/pinboard, pins, scrap papers, colored pens, watercolor, etc).

“Your memory feels like home to me. So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you.”  Ranata Suzuki



o Give her a bouquet of fresh flowers from your garden.

You can arrange them in her favorite vase or any reusable glass bottle/jar/tin can that you can decorate with some scrap papers, colored paint pens and twine, or you can neatly bundle the flowers together with a nice reusable ribbon/twine/wrapping paper/kraft paper that you already have around the house – so lovely!


o Make/bake Mom’s favorite dessert.

A lovely dessert sweetened with your TLC!


o Give her a well-deserved pampering.

Set up her room with a nicely-scented aromatherapy oil (what’s her fave scent?) and give her a relaxing massage (she deserves some pampering!).
