These DIY gift ideas from our favorite creators make for a lovely Mother’s Day gift. Check them out!

It’s hard to think of the perfect gift for your mom because regardless of what you decide on, it always feels inadequate. She’s too perfect and no gift feels good enough for her, no? Besides, she will surely be the first one to crib if you spend a lot, especially if it’s on her. So how do you find a gift for mom that says thank you for everything you do? You can’t. But you can gift her something she’d value a lot more – your time.

How often have you heard her complain about you not spending time with her? When was the last time you had a legit conversation with her? And no, “khaane mein kya bana hai?” doesn’t count. We’re so occupied with watching TV shows, working a nine to five and trying to make sense of the world right now that we forget to make time for what we’re actually seeking right now – connection, that deep and meaningful one that leaves you feeling content. You’ll be surprised by how well you can connect with your mom, seriously. Instead of waiting for her to take the first step, why don’t you? Ask her how her day was, how she is really doing, does she miss her friends?

If conversations are difficult for you, suggest activities that you can do together, ones that you know she’d enjoy. Like fluid art, making baskets out of ropes, denim slippers out of old jeans, DIY soap bars, and home decor that you can make at home. Think of it as you’re with a friend over coffee and talking about the little things in life. You can also surprise her by cooking her favorite dish, making a handmade card for her, giving her a manicure followed by fancy DIY nail art, and converting things she says into inspirational quotes. With shops shut and deliveries being limited to only essentials, a DIY gift is a way to go! Plus it’s so personalized and it shows that you care. You’ll be surprised at how much your mom will love these instead of expensive gifts.

Take inspiration from these creators and gift your mom something valuable this Mother’s Day.
