Mother’s day is an excellent occasion to show your appreciation to your mom for everything that she has done for you. There are a number of ways to make her day special. You probably want to gift her something unique. Why not go for handmade gifts? They mean so much more than the store bought one. Plus, you have the option of customizing them all you like! Here are a few DIY gift ideas for mother’s day.
These would not only come in handy but are also super cute to simply put up! Over the years, there would’ve been a ton of memories with the family. Gather all the best pictures. Now, get them reduced to a fixed passport or stamp size photos. Paste the pictures on a mounting board using some glue and after it dries, cut them out. Attach the magnets and you’re done!
Lavender Bath Bombs
There’s nothing more refreshing than a warm, relaxing bath. Well, what makes a bath better? You got it! Bath bombs! Who doesn’t love lavender? This mother’s day, make your mom some lavender bath bombs. You’ll need a silicone mold for this. To begin with, take some citric acid powder in a bowl and add baking soda to it. Next, add a few drops of some essential oils to the mixture. You could also use almond oil. Use a little water to moisten it. However, be careful to not use too much. Place a few dried lavender petals in the mold and fill it with the mixture. Invert it out and let it dry. You can pack them as you like!
‘Reasons Why I Love You’ book
This would make her day! Get some cardboard paper and cut out tiny little rectangles of the same size (the size you’d want your book to be). Make around 10 of these or how many ever you want to! Write one thing you love about her in each note. You could make them pretty with some glitter and color! Punch a hole on the corner of each of these. Tie a ribbon through it and you’re done!
A necklace would sure make a pretty gift. Plus, you could add a various other stuff to this according to what your mom would like. Start by getting some embroidery thread. Wrap it around a cardboard in loops. Remove the piece of cardboard, tie some thread around the neck of the loop and cut the ends on one side. Insert a jump ring through the top of this. Make multiple tassels and pass a nylon thread through the rings. You could add a few beads to finish.
If you’re giving her bath bombs, you might as well give her this. Well, even if there aren’t going to be bath bombs, scented candles are simply good to light for a good mood! To make these, begin by getting small glass jars where you’d want your candle to be. Place the wicks at the bottom of these jars. You could hold these up with the help of some chopsticks. Now, take candle wax flakes and melt them. If you want to add color, melt some crayon too. Once the mixture is melted, take it out and add some essential oil to it. Fill it into the jars, let it cool and it’s done!
