On Mother’s Day, the pressure is on. The weight of finding a gift that’s not only meaningful but functional to boot can feel downright impossible. Because the last thing you want is for your mom to love it and then toss it in a few days, right?
Sure, you have plenty of places to shop for that special gift: You can aimlessly roam the aisles of Target in hopes she doesn’t already own everything in the store, or you can scroll through Amazon for a few days overthinking everything you drop into your cart (especially after reading every positive and negative review you come across). But why not ditch both and create something with your own two hands?
When it comes to gifts, a homemade, handcrafted present is far superior to a store-bought card. DIY Mother’s Day gifts show you’ve put some thought — and time! — into it.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite DIY projects perfect for Mother’s Day. Pair any of these ideas with a bouquet of flowers, and you’re all set.
