Mother's Day in the US is May 13th this year. Are you wracking your brain for a great gift to make your mom smile this year? Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you make yourself. I’ve got a great list of DIY Mother's Day gifts that you can have fun crafting and that your mom is going to really appreciate.
And, just in case you’re all fingers and thumbs, or don’t have time for DIY Mother’s Day gifts, there are also suggestions for items you can buy.
1 DIY Photo Coasters
Use photos from when you were a kid or more recent ones. Either way, Mom will love this!
Of course, if you don’t trust yourself to get the job done well enough, then you can always look to experts for inspiration! Photo coasters like these are the perfect example.
2 Fingerprints on a Necklace
I'd love to have one of these!
Along with this wonderfully personal gift, it also never hurts to buy your mum a stunning piece of jewelry. Every time she wears it she’ll be thinking of you!
3 Framed Photos
All your mom has to do with this is hang it on the wall.
There are also plenty of great photo frame sets that you can buy online if perhaps you just wanted to curate a bunch of family photos and present them to your mum instead. It’s an equally touching gift idea!
4 Chocolate Bouquet
No mom is going to be sad that she got chocolate for Mother's Day.
If you really want to push the boat out, then you can’t really get much more luxurious and delicious than this stunning box from Godiva. They almost look too good to eat, *almost * being the key word!
5 Spa and Pampering in a Jar
Everything your mom needs to have a spa day right at home. Perfect!
And if you think she deserves even more than your DIY efforts, then a pampering gift set like this one will never go unappreciated!
6 Adjectives That Describe Your Mother

Why not take this gift idea even further and spell out the adjectives you can think of about your mum on the fridge. It will make a trip to the kitchen a much more pleasant and empowering experience!
7 Hearts Necklace
I love the fun colors! Which one is your favorite?
If you don’t want to risk messing up a DIY attempt, then you can always play it safe and buy your mum a wonderful heart pendant. What is there not to like about something like this?
8 Fill a Tumbler with Little Goodies
All the things your mom loves best!

9 Butterfly Footprint Art
This is a super cute idea for Grandma or a new mom.
As well as this great idea, there is loads of amazing butterfly inspired artwork that you can buy for your mum if she happens to really love the delicate patterns and creations of nature. Something like this is perfect.
10 DIY Photo Collage
This gift is going to be so much fun to put together.
To make a great collage, you are going to need a great frame, something simple but sturdy is always the best way to go to allow the photos you choose to shine through.
11 DIY Lip Gloss
If you don’t fancy trying to make your own, then we’re sure you mum will be just as happy with a gift of a macaron shaped lip gloss.
12 Homemade Strawberry Bath Soak
Give your mom a reason to take a break and relax.
Bath bombs can be really tricky to make for yourself, so if you don’t want to take the risk of ruining your Mother’s Day gift, then play it safe and pick up a couple of tried and tested best sellers instead!
13 Planted Pot of Flowers with My Kids Prints
What momma or grandma wouldn't be proud to show this off?

14 DIY Photo Quilt
All of life's best moments on one quilt. Beautiful!
Your mum won’t be able to have the photo quilt on her bed 24/7, so why not buy her some luxury bedding to switch it out for when the time comes for a washing?

The ribbons make these so cute.
If you want this gift to look as impressive and as cute as possible, then you need to find the perfect miniature pots. No need to worry, we’ve already found them for you!

16 DIY Flower Pens
Writing anything is better with flowery pens.
These pens are really great, but nothing lasts forever, so make sure that your mum has a great stationery set that will come in handy when she needs an extra pen!
17 Outdoor Planter
Paint this in all your mom's favorite colors.
If your mum is really into her gardening, then why not treat her to a new set of patio furniture for Mother’s Day? It’s a great gift that can be enjoyed way beyond the actual day of celebration.
18 DIY Hand Warmers
Help Mom get cozy and toasty with these adorable warmers made from fabric scraps.
