Mother’s Day DIY Gift Idea: 10 Things I Love About You
So, I absolutely love this idea- if you have an inner Martha Stewart, this could be the perfect gift idea for you. Make a mini book for your mom (or significant other) explaining things you love about her.
All you need is:
• Cardstock to print the cards on (or you can use a deck of cards)
• A hole punch
• A binder/jump ring (available at your local craft or office supplies store) — or you could use ribbon!
• A pen to write with

Buzzfeed also shared several other projects you can do!
Make a “Mom Survival Kit”
Load up a jar of her favorite things that can make their day more manageable. Here’s an example from Classy Clutter of what’s inside the jar to the right- she even added printable labels!
• Wet Ones and sanitizer (always a must-have around kids)
• Brightening under eye cream (for those lack of sleep eyes)
• Listerine strips
• Mascara and chapstick (so you feel somewhat put together)
• Crystal Light Energy and a bit of chocolate (because those two things can help just about anything)
Other Inexpensive/ Free gifts
• Make a homemade meal & clean up
• Share your favorite memory/ story about her
• Make a homemade card- Check ideas here!
• Give her the day off- do all the errands & tasks she needs done and let her just sit back and relax!
Gift for Grandma
Take a picture, then have each generation hold the picture inside of the picture- the outcome is nothing short of adorable and will certainly pull on anyone’s heart strings.
Now that you got some ideas under your belt- I hope they turn out successful! I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
