There is something about a handmade gift that pulls on a mother's heartstrings. Maybe it takes them back to the days when you were little and brought home adorable handmade cards for every holiday declaring your love and admiration. Maybe it's the fact that you took time out of your busy day now that you're an adult to acknowledge how much you care.
Maybe it's a little bit of both and maybe we're crying right now just thinking about it. Kids grow up so fast, right!?
Handmade gifts mean a lot to a mom and these five DIY gift ideas are perfect for last minute gifting, because let's face it — you are a busy adult now but still want your mama to know you care.
Luxurious Coconut Lavender Body Scrub
This amazing four ingredient body scrub smells divine and takes only a few minutes to put together. Even better: make it in a Stasher, gift it in a Stasher, store it in a Stasher. It literally couldn't get any easier. We'd recommend the Milky Way Sandwich size.
Zero Waste Bath Bombs
Only six ingredients on these delightful zero waste bath bombs make your shopping list a breeze and putting them together is super simple thanks to the video tutorial we've got at the link. This is one of our personal faves from our friend EcoGoddess. We also love the Sandwich Moonstone as packaging for this gift, or if you're going for a big batch, a Stand-Up.
Reuseable Refreshment Wipes
Sure, these are widely known as "baby wipes," but these environmentally responsible DIY lavender wipes aren't just good for babies. They're also great for mom to store in her gym bag (if you need more gift ideas for your fit mom, we've got you covered), keep in her purse, or desk drawer at work when the stress sweats hit. We've been there and totally understand.
Everyday Create Kit
Is your mom more of the creative type who's longing for an outlet? Why not just hit the art supply store and get her started with paints, pens, a sketchpad, nice pens, a journal, or whatever ignites her personal creative superpower. Bonus: gifting and storing in a Stasher makes this gift clean, tidy, and eco-friendly to boot.
At-Home Movie Night
There's nothing wrong with staying in and indulging in a guilty pleasure and some movie theater style candy. In fact, it's our favorite way to spend a Saturday night. Easy gift idea: a Netflix subscription and her favorite sweet treats. Grab an extra Stasher and throw in some popcorn (that you can actually make in the bag!) and it's a lovely night in for one.
