As much as we love our moms, there are times we just can’t get away from work or home long enough to choose the perfect gift for her. But now you have no excuse for not getting your mom something because these seven last-minute gift options will be just as great as anything else you could find. The most important thing is the love and gratitude you’ll be giving her, right?
“Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.” - Stevie Wonder
This will be a nice option if you already have some succulents around your home. That way it’ll be even more of a special gift. Because, you know, it’s like you’re giving out one of your babies.
For this gift, you’ll need:
- A colander
- A straw
It’s really simple to put together, and if your mom is into trending things (or plants), she will love this gift!
Now, if your mom is more of a homebody, these photo magnets are a great idea! Maybe it’s a bit much in saying they’re the best last-minute option, but they’re sure super easy and practical to make. You only need the photos (don’t forget to resize them before printing), a mounting board (which you’ll use to glue the photos to), and the magnets that will be glued to the mounting board once it has been cut.
Where Is Home?
You’ve probably already heard the saying “Home is where you hang your hat”, right? Well, people have been creative and made lots of DIYs with a little twist of that saying, stuff like “home is where your dog is” or “...where your cat is”.
It’s “home is wherever your mom is”, and I must say: it feels to me that this is the biggest truth I’ve seen so far. So it’s only fair to let her know about it, don’t you think so? This candle is so easy to make yourself and, if you don’t have transfer paper and vinyl adhesive, you can improv with a black Sharpie!
Is your mom a sewing maniac? Then this is the gift you need to make her! With a couple of Mason jars and some sewing items you can assemble this lovely sewing kit that will make a super cute addition to her home studio!
Now, if the kitchen is where your mom spends most of her time, then a recipe holder will be the best idea for her! The thing about this DIY is that you need to do some wood work, so it’ll only be practical if you have the tools needed at home already.
If you do decide to go out and find the supplies needed for this gift, I’m sure you’ll love making it and your mom will love receiving it!
This is probably the easiest DIY gift ever - you basically need two things: a notebook and origami paper. There’s a step by step that’s super simple to follow, and I can guarantee you your mom will find this a great gift! Especially if loves writing!
Of course, we couldn’t leave out an option for the kids to make! Whether for their mom or their grandma, this garden looks so adorable! You need cardboard, some scissors (remember to watch the kids all the time with those) and then you just need to use your creativity.
