5 Last Minute DIY Mother’s Day Gifts

5 Last Minute DIY Mother’s Day Gifts

If you’re like me, you might be scrambling to come up with the best Mother’s Day gift ever. Mother’s Day is May 10, meaning we have 5 days until we spoil our mommas. I always find myself in the same position each year, cycling the same questions in my mind. What should I buy for my mom? What should I make my her? Wait, does she want something handmade or from the store??? To save us all the headache, I’ve decided to search the internet for 5 handy, dandy Mother’s Day gift ideas that you may want to consider for your mom.

1. Pedicure in a Jar

Before we dive in, just ignore the fact the photos show that this is for a baby shower. Ok so, your mom already smells nice, but may need some help when it comes to her nails. No worries! Pedicure in a jar is perfect because it’s several steps above that basket of Bath and Body Works products that she will inevitably receive at Christmas! In all seriousness, save your ma some money and buy her some nice summery nail polish colors like coral or teal.

2. Photo Book

From personal experience, my mom cried when we gave her a customized photo book with our family photos in it. I used My Publisher to make my photo album, and it was easy to use and it had different themes and book styles to choose from. But with it being so late in the game, sites like My Publisher may not be able to ship your book in time. No worries though because places like Walmart and CVS have an option to make a photo book as well and they might be able to make your book just in time for Sunday. If you ever decide to use My Publisher in the future, definitely find a Groupon for it. I swear there’s always a Groupon for My Publisher, and it’s so worth it!

3. Sharpie Mugs


Sharpie mugs are a great go-to when you’re in a time crunch for DIY gifts. Mugs are cheap, so you can decorate a set of super cute Sharpie mugs for your mom. For a bonus gift idea, make it a gift bundle and buy tea or coffee to go with the mugs!

4. Rustic Succulent Pots


This super cute idea I saw on Pinterest comes from the blog Meatloaf and Melodrama which was featured on the blog PinkWhen. So if your mom likes plants and wants one of her own, but doesn’t have room in the backyard or time for a garden, then this might be the gift for her! Succulents are low maintenance which makes them the perfect plant for your busy momma.

5. Stud Earrings


You can never fail when it comes to jewelry, but sometimes jewelry comes with a pretty expensive price. So why not make your own? A sweet blog called Mad in Crafts put together a list of 20 ways to make stud earrings. If you want to add on to this gift, you could always make your mom a jewelry box to keep the studs together.
