It’s often said that the gifts you make yourself are the ones that mean the most to their recipients so, with Mother’s Day fast approaching, we want to put a grown-up spin on the tradition of homemade gifts. Show your mom just how much you care this Mother’s Day with these DIY ideas that may just beat the macaroni art you made her in second grade.
For the mom who needs some relaxation
We recommend putting together a one-of-a-kind gift of cozy, treat-filled slippers. This simple but sweet gift will warm your mom’s heart on even the most stressful of days. The main component of this gift is the slippers, so we recommend getting these comfy moccasins from Penningtons, on promotion and featured on RedFlagDeals.
Sticking to the theme of relaxation, we suggest filling the slippers with all the rest and relaxation essentials, including face creams, face masks, bath bombs, and makeup, for the ultimate relaxation experience.
For the mom who needs to be pampered
Give her all the tools she’ll need for a salon-quality manicure, all conveniently packed in an easy-to-store mason jar. Start by getting a large mason jar, then fill it up with all the nail essentials: nail polish, nail file, nail clippers, cuticle cream or oil, nail polish remover, and anything else you think she’ll love.
To really spoil the most important woman in your life, throw in a gift card for a spa service mani-pedi to boot!
For the mom who spends all her free time reading
Pair a book that she’s dying to get her hands on with a custom, easy-to-make bookmark. Start by laminating a photo of you (and your siblings) and attach a string with a tassel to finish. This is a great gift idea to give to mom from the kids or grandkids!

For the mom who loves sipping on a warm cup of tea
Create DIY tea bags and pair them with a beautiful vintage teacup and saucer.
These custom-made tea bag printables are courtesy of Lia Griffith and only cost $5 to print. Beyond these, all that you’ll need is cheese cloth, twine, and the loose-leaf tea of your choosing. Use this David’s Tea promotion to complete this hearfelt Mother’s Day gift idea.
For the mom with a green thumb
Put together a vintage-style herb garden in a jar, just for her.
This is likely the simplest of these DIY ideas, as the hard work comes with actually growing the herb garden. Pick up a set of four (or more) Mason jars, along with Mason jar holders. Fill the jars up with potting soil and plant seedling of your mom’s favourite herbs, like basil, parsley, cilantro, and mint. Don’t forget to water the plants and keep them by sunlight until they are gifted!
