Teacup Candles

Everyone loves candles as they refresh any room! How about finding some cute vintage tea cups at a local thrift shop and gluing a yummy-scented candle into it! You could even do a whole set of teacups, one for each room.

Throw Pillows

Gather some cute fabric scraps or swatches for a craft store and make some cute throw pillows for your mom’s living room or bedroom! With only a few cuts and stitches, this gift is perfect for the mom that loves unique home decor. Not much of a sewer? For smaller pillows you could use a little fabric glue to create a cute little pillow collection.

Handmade Card

If you aren’t much of a gift giver, you could always just make a cute heart-felt card! Handmade cards are so much more personal than store bought cards, and are so easy to make. Collage cards are super easy to create, and you already have the tools in your home. How about a collage of flowers from magazines or newspapers? Play off the springy weather and make her a card covered in her favorite blooms! You could also create a card with a photo as the cover, a goofy selfie from your last family gathering is sure to put a smile on her face.

Picture Frame

This gift is a no brainer for moms. How about printing out some of those photos from you latest family vacation and framing a few? Update some of the photos in your home, and print a few for your mom to hang in her office or at work! Buy a few plain frames and add details like stamps, seashells or paint to personalize the frames.

Make Time

This gift is totally free! If you are out of gift ideas, simply set aside some time to spend with your mom. Book a day just you two, or with your siblings, and plan some fun events. Maybe a nail day, or an afternoon as your favorite NYC museum, or just go for a walk to catch up a bit.

Our moms do so much for us throughout our lives, so take some time to celebrate them! Even if you just call them up to say hi, make sure to thank your mom for all she does.
