7 Creative DIY Gifts for Mom

Moms are the best. The wonderful thing about a mother is that you can give her any gift, big or small, bought or handmade and she’ll make a fuss to let you feel like it’s the best gift ever! So treat her this Mother’s Day or on her birthday by making something especially for her that she will cherish and remember forever. Here are 7 of the best DIY gifts for moms that I’ve come across which I can’t wait to try!

1.  Herb Garden with Chalk-Painted Rocks

Herb Garden Painted Rocks

Pick up some fresh herbs and pretty planters, black chalk paint and chalk, find some rocks and create this little herb garden. If she doesn’t have green fingers (like me) she’ll like that the chalk painted rocks can be reused for new plants.


2.  Velvet Ribbon Bookmarks

Oooh these ribbon bookmarks are so pretty! It’s fun that each one will turn out totally unique depending on what scrap jewellery or charms you have lying around. If mom’s a reader, she’ll love them!

3.  Coffee Gift Basket

Pack in a throw, gourmet coffee or cappuccinos, biscuits or homemade banana bread, coffee mugs and some books, magazines or a notebook. I like this idea because you can get all the goodies according to her liking, then cuddle in bed with her and enjoy this basket together. It’s like a picnic in bed!

4.  Photo Coasters

I’ve always thought that making photo coasters would be difficult, but after reading this easy tutorial I think I might actually give it a try! Use old photos of when you were little and find some of the two of you together. Mom will be so impressed!

5.  Hand-painted Wooden Spoons


I wonder who thought of painting wooden spoons first? I think it’s genius in that it’s so simple and such a stylish take on ordinary utensils. Go with colours that match her kitchen or cookware. I made some for myself too!

All the women in my family adored these as Christmas gifts, so I can guarantee that your mother will love this homemade sugar scrub. Be creative with the flavours and see what you come up with.

This is so nifty. Our family is always searching for keys so this is a perfect handmade gift for the home. You could even decoupage black and white photos to the wood for a personal touch.
