We all know it, there is no one in our lives like our Mother, The one person who is always selflessly there for us, making our lives happier and easier. So when her special day comes, let’s show her how special and important she is to us by giving her a unique gift.
Gifts like these mean more to her than anything brought from the market. We have made a list of budget-friendly gift options and some DIY options that your mom would love!
1. Bake/Cook Something for Her
Take her by surprise by cooking a meal for her. You can also bake a cake if you want. Just youtube some good recipes you will be comfortable making without breaking a sweat.
Pro tip: If you don’t know how to cook, take someone’s help or try it beforehand, prior to cooking for her. This way you will make a better dish.
2. A DIY Photo Frame
Shortlist all your favourite memories from everywhere and shortlist 15-20 good-quality photos and get them printed. Now take 4 good-quality and same-length wooden sticks to join them together to make a frame. Cotton strings are used and tied/glued in the frame from one end to another and photos can be clipped or stuck on them to make a beautiful handmade photo frame that can be placed anywhere in your house.
3. Handwritten Notes
Write small personalised notes on a rectangular piece of paper and roll them and tie them with a jute thread to make it look like a scroll. Your mother will love the way you showed your feelings towards her in this way and will probably keep it with her forever.
4. Handmade Jewelry
If you are a creative person this can be a very unique gift on Mother’s Day. Use different kinds of beads, wire/string and other craft items to make a beautiful and special piece of jewellery.
5. A Painting
If you are a good painter then try your hands on a mother-daughter painting. Your mom will love it and can use it as a decoration for her wall or table. If you are not an artist, consider getting it made by someone.
6. Gift Basket
Create a special gift basket with her favourite food items, candles, cosmetics like nail polish, lipsticks, liner, rings, bracelet, bath gel, body cream etc, a wine if she is a wine person, a book from her favourite author, some nice crunchies to munch on while watching her favourite movie and more such gifts for a perfect hamper! Add a special note to make it more beautiful.
7. A personalised flower pot
If your mother loves caring for her garden like a baby, consider giving her a hand-painted pot. Buy a terracotta pot and paint it with bright acrylic paint. Once the paint is dried, paint a cute message on the pot like, I love you more, best mom ever, happy mother’s Day etc. Choose a plant like a herb or succulent that keeps growing that she would love and cherish forever.
8. Resin Art Gifts
Buy a resin kit and create your own resin gift for her. Some resin gift ideas can be, a tray, keychain, painting, coasters, photo frame, mobile cover etc. You can beautify it by adding dried flowers, stars or alphabets.
9. Mason Jars
This gift idea has various options like food products, chocolates, flavoured and mixed seeds, granola, liquid chocolate, gums, macaroons etc. You can find mason jar recipes on youtube. Decorate the jar for a special touch.
10. New Mother’s Day-Out
If she has just become a new mom, pampering her would be the perfect gift option. Make a kit with a bag that she can carry including baby stuff, a day out just for herself to get her nails done or a spa session. To make it a special end, a family movie night can be done,
No matter what you give her, every gift is extremely special for mothers out there!! Remember to add a special touch with a personalised message about how special she is in literally everything.
