6 Easy DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Spring flowers are blooming and the weather is gorgeous, which means Mother’s Day is on its way. If you’re like us, that also means you’re scrambling to come up with the perfect gift for Mom.

We at Mother Rucker’s Sweets have a few favorite DIY gift ideas that are a breeze to make, look beautiful and create a touchingly personal gift for mom this Mother’s Day.

A Flower Arrangement

The variety of cut flowers available in the floral section of just about any grocery store are all you need to create a beautiful and unique flower arrangement. You don’t have to be a florist, either — just remember to start with a flower that’s as tall or taller than the vase you’re using, and choose a variety of flowers and fillers to complement your main selection. This slideshow of flower arrangement ideas is helpful for brainstorming your own ideas to match your mom’s taste.

Bath Salts

Whose mom doesn’t enjoy relaxing in a warm bath at the end of a hectic day? Bath salts not only fill the air with lovely scents and soften the skin, but they also uplift your mood and create a spa-like experience in your own home. They’re easy to make, and when you package them up in elegant glass jars, you’ve got one special gift on your hands. This tutorial for homemade herbal bath salts will show you how.

Mini Resin Photo Charms

You’ve got plenty of Instagram photos of the family — now turn them into a handmade keepsake to remember by following this tutorial for making mini resin photo charms. All you need are popsicle sticks, paper glaze from the craft store and a color printer.

A Dip-Dyed Ombre Bag

Give your mom a splash of her favorite color with a handy dip-dyed ombre tote bag. With this tutorial, a bottle of dye, a white tote bag and a bucket, you’ll have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift to give your mother in minutes.

Vintage Teacup Candles

Hit the thrift shop with this tutorial on making vintage teacup candles. You’ll want to pick up some cute retro teacups with an antique look, and then collect a few basic candle-making supplies from the craft store. The result looks expensive and elegant, and you only need a few bucks and a free Saturday afternoon to make them.

Mother’s Day Gift Basket

When your mother isn’t easy to buy for and has just about everything she needs, you may find it difficult to find a gift that won’t be relegated to the back of the closet. We have the perfect solution: a simple gift basket.
Start with your basket — or canister, flower pot or even the dip-dyed ombre bag above — and fill it with all the things you know your mom can’t resist, like gourmet seasonings and kitchen implements for the mother who loves cooking. If your mom has a green thumb, include flower seeds, gloves, hand cream and a garden trowel. For the mother who loves to spend sunny days poolside, try a pair of flip-flops, a beach towel and sunscreen. Finally, don’t forget to include a variety of delicious goodies, like Mother Rucker’s Sweets cookies and cookie brittle!
