25 Easy DIY Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is almost here, and If you don’t have a gift yet, no worries—we’re sharing a roundup of easy DIY’s that you can whip up before the weekend!

This clay planter just screams happy. And, it’s incredibly easy to make—the hardest part is deciding which colors to use. 😉

Treat your mom to a relaxing bubble bath with bubble bath bars! We recommend putting them in something like this—they’re just too pretty not to be displayed.

We love all things wicker and rattan, and this caned candle holder gives off all those vibes.

If your mom loves jewelry but needs a special place for to store/display it, you could make her this earring holder. The bottom is made with marbled contact paper to keep things budget-friendly.

Click here to see how Laura made those cool gold statement earrings—another gift idea!

This homemade potpourri is easy to make and so much better than the store-bought kind. You could make a big batch of it, too!

Candles make great gifts for any occasion—especially Mother’s Day. We have a few couple options to choose from, like beeswax (they have a light honey scent), soy, and this cute flower-shaped pillar candle.

Sweet dreams! Make her bedtime pillow mist that she’s sure to love.

We shared a way to organize earrings, but what about rings? This palm leaf dish is super easy to make.

We really love this set of recipe cards—and they are free/can be printed at home. Add a cute recipe tin and you’re set.

These pineapple oven mitts are equal parts adorable and functional.

Homemade bath salts (infused with her favorite essential oils) are an easy-to-make and thoughtful gift idea.

If she loves plants, make her a brass ring hanging planter, and you can put a real or faux plant inside.

Bath bombs are always a fun gift idea. We have several DIY’s on the blog like the one above (rainbow with gold lustre–oooh!) and green tea and lemon (made with real green tea) and this classic kind.

We’re partial to cake, but you can add any phrase to this no-sew kitchen towel.

Make her a pair of simple dangle pearl earrings. So pretty!

Homemade soap is one of our favorite gift ideas. We have several to choose from, like this gemstone soap, grapefruit poppyseed, pumpkin spice, and tie dye.

This pink sugar body scrub is a “dupe” of a popular brand, and we can’t get enough! Make some for your mom and yourself.

You could make her a set of terrazzo cheese knives (and then invite yourself over for cheese and wine, of course). 😉

Another kitchen related gift? Beeswax food wraps. We love using these reusable (and environmentally-friendly) wraps for leftovers.

You could buy a set of wool dryer balls (they’re so much better than dryer sheets) or you can make your own set and add a bottle of lavender or lemon essential oil to the gift bag.

Don’t forget a card! We created two designs to choose from, and they can be printed at home. Or, you could make a pop-up card like Emma did here. Easy peasy.

Have a happy Mother’s Day! xo. The ABM Team
