Mother’s Day is this weekend and like most occasions I am scrambling at the last minute to put something together!
For everyone else out there that waits until the 11th hour, here are 7 easy, affordable DIY ideas that you could put together by Sunday 🙂
I love these little stenciled terra cotta pots. Quick and inexpensive! You can easily customize different patterns and colors. Then just pick up your mom’s favorite plant from the local garden store! See the tutorial at DIY Candy
If you have a little more time and money to spend, these painted planters are also pretty sweet and fun for Mother’s Day! See the tutorial at The Beauty Dojo
This is a *super* easy and quick gift for Mother’s Day or any other occasion! Or just for yourself when you need a treat. There are different recipes for sugar scrubs but this easy one from Living Well Spending Less is just sugar, coconut oil, and essential oil. This recipe is lemon scented, but you can easy change it up with different essential oils! Just get a cute little jar and gift tag-perfect spa gift!
Custom DIY gifts with photos can be a sweet, thoughtful way to make an affordable Mother’s Day gift. Check out these cute coasters from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen
I love these cute little slipper gift baskets that you can fill with nail polish, lip gloss, gift cards, and anything else mom might desire! The possibilities are endless-anything can be a gift basket! Beach bag, glass jar, wooden crate-just about anything can be a gift basket!
Even though flower pots were first on the list, I had to mention these little teacup planters. How cute are these?! Teacups can often be found for cheap at thrift stores, such as Goodwill or Salvation Army. I love the idea of giving mom a few mismatched teacups and saucers with flowers such as these pansies or maybe even herbs.
6-Homemade Edible Gifts
Edible gifts are not only great for Mother’s Day, but can also be great for when you need to make gifts for many people on a budget, such as the office at the holidays. You may even have some of the ingredients already at home. Here are two ideas, one sweet and one savory! Get a mason jar and voila-Mother’s Day gift complete.
7-Take care of mom!
The last Mother’s Day idea is the most simple and can even be free. Take care of mom! Cook a meal (breakfast in bed is an old favorite at my parent’s house!), clean the house, offer to run errands, or just spend time together!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there-especially my own sweet mama, the most caring, loving, and genuinely kind person I know!
