Mothers Day is about celebrating your love and appreciation for that special woman who brought you into this life. What better way of showing that you care then by making her a specially tailored present that comes straight from your heart and home.This collection of gift ideas ranges from handmade beauty products to gardening goodies and baked treats. Each are relatively easy to make and all show that handmade can be the more creative and beautiful option in gift giving!
I found this tutorial on how to make a Mason Jar Sewing Kit on Pinterest and love how pretty and easy the project is. If your mom loves sewing and crafting then she’ll be overjoyed to receive such a useful and beautiful gift.
One gift that will go down a treat is homemade Lavender & Honey cookies. Quickly made, these fragrant bites of deliciousness look lovely in a natural kraft box.
All moms deserve a bit of pampering and you can easily make yours this luxurious and natural Wild Rose and Honey Hand Cream. Make a larger batch and you’ll have enough to treat yourself too!
Make your mom a Terrarium kit with a mason car, pebbles, an instruction card and polymer mushrooms. The tutorial instructs you to leave the kit free for the recipient to add soil and plants but for Mother’s Day I’d go ahead and add those too. Ask the knowledgeable folks at your local gardening center which plants they recommend.
Aprons are easy and fun projects that moms will appreciate. If your mom is more of a cook than a gardener then have a look at this tutorial that shows you how to create this gorgeous apron from tea towels. Super cute.
You won’t find a simpler handmade bag tutorial than this one. All that’s needed are two fabric place mats, a zipper, and a sewing machine. You could probably make this bag in about fifteen minutes.
When I make cold-process soap it takes an hour to make a batch then over a month for the soap to cure and be ready to be used. This tutorial shows how to make a handmade bar of Apricot Soap on a Rope in just minutes using ingredients that can be found on Amazon.
