DIY Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Can you believe that Mother’s Day is just around the corner? Mother’s Day has always left me with wonderful memories over the years. Today we are talking about DIY Mothers Day gift ideas to help celebrate. 

When the kids were young, we always started the day off with breakfast in bed. It was so much fun to have them run into the bedroom and bring in a tray with the food that they made for me (with their Dad’s help), fresh-cut flowers from the garden and their sweet, excited faces. Those days are long gone, but we still celebrate the holiday day together. Sometimes we even celebrate on a different day other than actually Mothers Day because it is easier for our schedules.

DIY Mother's Day gift ideas to make and give this year!




























When your family is lucky enough to celebrate many mamas, it can get expensive trying to buy gifts for everyone. Today I am sharing some fun DIY Mother’s Day gifts to make for moms, grandmothers, aunts, and other special moms in your life. They also make great inexpensive gifts for any occasion.

One of the gifts I made a couple of years ago, was this easy DIY jewelry box.

It was easy to make and very cost-effective. To help you in your quest to celebrate all the wonderful moms in your life, I collected these cool DIY Mother’s Day gift ideas that you can start on now and have ready for Mother’s Day. I know that my favorite gifts (for any occasion), are those that were handmade by friends and family. I still have many of the little clay pots and photo frames that my kids made me when they were young.

Many of these DIY Mother’s Day gifts also work for birthday or teacher appreciation gifts.  I am planning on giving my mom some books and something handmade.  I do not think she still has anything I made for her from my schools, but that was a very long time ago! I remember writing a book for her and making her macaroni frames.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We enjoyed the weekend with family and lots of great food.
