Mother’s day is the perfect occasion to celebrate all the mothers and mother figures in our lives. While mothers should be celebrated every day, having a specific day for them presents the perfect opportunity to spoil them with unique gifts that show just how much we appreciate all they do for us.
Here are some cost-efficient homemade mother’s day gifts that will show your love in a very unique and personal way.
Strawberry Rose bouquets
While it’s common to give your mother a bouquet of roses, she will not expect an edible alternative. This could be done by practically anyone as long as you have the materials: strawberries, wooden skewers, and a knife. Wash the strawberries and insert them into a wooden skewer by the base of the leaves. Then, use your knife to cut out the “leaves” of this rose, making small cuts on the side and the top of the strawberry. This is just the basic “flower,” but imagination is your limit. You can add chocolate, marshmallows, sprinkles, etc. For a more in depth guide on how to make your own strawberry rose, click here.
Dedicate a music playlist to her
An often, never thought of idea that will show your love in a very unique way is making a playlist for your mom. This is a simple idea that just requires you to enter a platform like YouTube or Spotify and start adding songs to a playlist. You can surprise her with a playlist of her favorite songs and for a more personal touch, you can also include a couple of your favorite artists. If you wish to go the extra mile, burn the playlist onto a CD for a gift that will also bring back memories.
Make an assortment of her favorite sweets
Another edible alternative to show your mother how much you love her is an assortment of sweets. This is a gift that does require a little money, but it is very rewarding and can be customized however your mom may like it. You can choose from a variety of her favorite sweets, ranging from chocolate to gummies to guilty pleasures she may like to indulge in. You can even add a bottle of wine or bubbly for extra points.
This is more than just a pile of candy, so the composition of the gift should be appealing. Organize it in a way that looks interesting and displays personality!
These are just some ideas, but there are plenty more ways to celebrate. From spending a day at the spa with your mom, taking her to the movies, or serenading her with mariachis, there is no set way to celebrate this holiday. As long as you find a way to show your mom all the love and appreciation you have for her, this Mother’s Day will be a memorable one!
