If you are anything like me, you have the best of intentions, but somehow gift purchasing seems to get put off until the last minute. Thank goodness there are millions of ideas for easy DIY gifts to make your mom feel extra special. By adding a few pearls to bobby pins you can create a really elegant gift for Mom for less than $10. Put them in a small box and then wrap with brown craft paper, lace and a satin ribbon.
Maybe you are more of a paper and scissors gal, well the I love U card is perfect for you to share your thoughts and feelings with the person who brought you into this world. Want to pamper your mom? Why don't you make her brown sugar body scrub and add a paper orchid to the packaging. Or is she an amazing cook? Homemade vanilla extract is one of the best things you can keep in your pantry. You can throw it in with screen printed dishtowels with memorable family recipes.
Finally, maybe your mom is super technical - why not type a message or save a powerpoint to a USB drive for a work related reminder of how much you love her. You can even add pictures or music that resonates with the two of you by simple saving to a thumb drive. Finally, have you and your sibling do a thumbprint heart pendant out of homemade dough.
I hope you treat your Mom for Mother's Day!
