What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with a gift made by her (favorite) child? Today we will be sharing 4 DIY Mother’s Day gifts & gestures that may just have your mother shedding happy tears.
- DIY Cookbook
A DIY cookbook is the perfect gift for any family that loves to be in the kitchen. One easy way to do this is by using a photo album! Alternate the placement of photo and recipe to create an aesthetically pleasing layout. Pair her cookbook with a personalized cutting board and apron to really bring everything together. As an added bonus, this cookbook can be passed down from generation to generation.
- Host Mother’s Day Brunch
It’s time to put those family recipes (or Pinterest) to good use with Mother’s Day brunch! Whether you are having brunch inside or on the patio, paying attention to details will turn it into a special event! Set the table with flowers, a table runner, accent plates, and personalized mason jars. From French toast to frittata your mom’s day will be off to a great start.
Tip: Pick a set of colors such as pink, purple, and green and stick to them for a look that is bright yet simple and put together.
- Make her a Gift Basket
The best part about making a gift basket yourself is that you’ll be able to fill it with mom’s favorites. Set the mood for a relaxing evening at home by filling a basket with her favorite bottle of wine, a wine glass with her name on it, and of course, chocolate! Use a personalized tote as a basket for a fun twist and fill it up with anything and everything she loves. Remember, you can never go wrong with a gift basket!
- Plant her Favorite Flowers
Whether you decide to plant potted flowers or seeds, taking the time to plant your mother’s favorite flowers in her garden is a beautiful gesture. Why send flowers when you can give a gift that keeps on giving – plant perennial flowers such as Shasta daisies that will bloom year after year. Be sure to add a garden flag or stone for a decorative touch. Your mother will think about you every time she lays her eyes on the flowers that you planted for her.
