Did you realize Mother’s Day is only a month away? It’s one holiday that always sneaks up on me, and every year it comes and goes leaving me thinking I need to be more prepared to make Mom something awesome the next year.
Many moms say they’re okay with a simple “I love you” or a visit, but it’s always nice to give your mom a little something special. What’s more special than something you created with your own two hands? Your mom has loved your creations since you were a toddler, so of course she’ll love a thoughtful handmade gift from you.
I have been collecting some beautiful DIY gift ideas lately, and wanted to share them with you today. I hope they inspire you to get started on an amazing handmade gift for your mom this year. This list has a variety of ideas, all fairly simple and inexpensive to create. They would be great gifts for your mom’s birthday, Mother’s Day, Christmas or any special occasion.
