Mother’s Day is steadily approaching, and year-after-year we come to the same question: what should we give Mom?

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to make your mom feel loved. The best way to show her how special she is would be to make her something yourself, with love and from the heart. We’ve rounded up some of the sweetest and easiest homemade gifts to make your mom smile:


Thumbprint Heart Glass Magnet

Using just a few simple materials, you can make your mom a sweet magnet with your thumbprints that she can then use on the fridge to display your fabulous works of art! This tutorial from Rhythms of Play tells you how to do it!


Coffee Sugar Scrub

Is your mom a coffee fanatic? Then make her this coffee sugar scrub from A Pumpkin and A Princess to use in the shower every morning! Using coffee grounds, sugar, and essential oils, it’s a simple, natural, and great-smelling recipe!


Paper Flower Bookmark

If your mom is an avid reader, then a beautiful paper flower bookmark would make the perfect gift! Every time she reads her favourite book, she’ll think of you. Take a look at this tutorial from The Spruce for inspiration.


Pounded Flower Tote Bag

This simple tutorial from Cutesy Crafts shows you how to create a stunning and unique tote bag for mom that she’ll be so excited to use. Collecting colourful flowers from your yard is only half the fun, then you get to hammer them onto the tote to create beautiful splashes of colour!


No Sew Fleece Blanket

Wrap your mom in a soft and cosy homemade fleece blanket with this tutorial from Practical Stewardship. Choose two fun fabrics in your mom’s favourite print or colours, cut fringe along each side, and simply tie together. No sewing, no fuss, and a blanket that mom will love!


Jar of Love

Take a mason jar, some slips of coloured paper, and write down all the reasons your mom is special and why you love her. Fill the jar with the slips of paper and love notes, so your mom can read them anytime she wants!
