New Mom

There’s nothing mom loves more than a heartfelt gift that shows how much she means to you. So, with Mother’s Day on the horizon, we thought we’d give you some Do-It-Yourself Mother’s Day gift inspiration to say, ‘thank you’ and ‘I love you’ with sincerity.

Sure beats a bunch of wilted flowers or a box of melted chocolates any day.

Mom’s Survival Kit

Being a mom is hard. It’s an endlessly exhausting and often thankless job. Think about the items your mom uses to get her through the day – her individual treats and indulgences –  and create your own individual ‘Mom’s Survival Kit’ filled with her favorite things.

Items might include chocolates, exotic tea brews, her preferred coffee pods, massage vouchers, beauty products, mini champagne bottles or even a mini personalized hip flask!

DIY Beauty Products – Sugar Scrub

Treat your mom to an organic, easy-to-make beauty product using a few simple ingredients from your kitchen. You will need:

1 cup raw or brown sugar

1/2 cup coconut or almond oil (depending on which scent you prefer)

1/2 cup olive oil

1 cup white sugar

All you’ll need to do to create this deluxe beauty product is follow these steps:

1. Mix

Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl. (If you need them a little more malleable, feel free to heat the coconut oil and sugar in the oven beforehand).

2. Stir

Stir the mixture to blend all ingredients and when you are happy with the consistency, fill a mason jar or other container of your choice with the aromatic scrub. Complete this thoughtful gift with a customized present tag for an extra sentimental touch.

3. Add (optional)

Depending on the aroma and the therapeutic benefits your mom would like best, you can add essential oils to your scrub if you so desire.

Homemade Mother’s Day card

Our point is, on Mother’s Day it really is the thought that counts so get organized, put some effort in and celebrate mom in the way she deserves.
