Mother’s Day Ideas: 9 Homemade Gifts for Mom

Give mom a homemade gift she’ll never forget with our 9 easy mother’s day ideas.

1. Spa Gift Basket

Make a gift basket by combining a few of her favorite things. Find scented toiletries in soothing aromas like lavender or chamomile. Tuck a comfy spa pillow and a gift certificate from a local spa into the basket, and you’ll create a gift mom will love.

2. Framed Photos

Find a few of mom’s beloved photos and head to your local framing shop. Choose frames that match her decor and add mattes to finish the look. Once framed, hang them on the wall and add a bow. This is a gift that will be appreciated every time she sees it.

3. Family Photo Album

Take the picture idea a step further and create a scrapbook from a cherished family vacation or event. Have each person write a few of their favorite memories and incorporate them on a page along with a picture of the person. Use other keepsakes such as shells from the beach or tickets from a play as well.

4. Hobby Classes

What kinds of things are on mom’s bucket list? Has she wanted to learn to cook? Do you suspect she’d be great at making pottery? Find a cooking, art or foreign language school, and make lessons a reality for her.

5. Flowers

Pick them from the garden or better yet, make your own flowers with tissue paper and pipe cleaners. Place them in a beautiful vase and present it to mom on her special day. Both the flowers and the vase will last forever.
