So. I know it’s after Christmas but I’m running behind. I had the hardest time figuring out what to get for my boyfriend’s mom. I couldn’t to do anything too expensive and she literally already has everything! Gift cards are always an option but I wanted to make her something too. Here are some DIY ideas (that aren’t tacky!) for those of you that are struggling too!
1. Detox Bath
I LOVE THIS. I’ve tried it and it really, really works. You could make these in bulk and give it to several friends. I’m going to make Blake’s mom several mini-jars to be used whenever she wants.
2. A Recipe Cardholder
Super cute, super cheap, and you could make this look really classy or cute and fun! Great gift for someone who loves to cook.
3. Glass etched dishes!
I really like this too. You could make her one and then ask if she wanted you to do any of her other dishes too.
4. Cute Oven Mitts
You could find a way to make a matching apron too!
5. DIY Jewelry
So many options here. This necklace looks expensive but only costs you $3 to make.
His mom lives in Florida, so probably not what I’ll be doing… but hey, for anyone who lives somewhere colder, a scarf that you made yourself would be a great idea! So many cute options with scarves too.

Someone who likes to read would find these little bookmarks absolutely adorable. You could gift these with her favorite book!
8. A Tablet Cover
SO CUTE! What a great gift for the Mom who loves her Kindle or iPad!
9. Accessory Bags
Cute, easy to make, and she could use them anywhere!
10. A Tea Wreath
Yes, you could put together a nice tea/coffee set, but this is SO CUTE. What a neat way to present a gift!
If you choose to go the gift card route, there are so many cute ways to spice it up a bit. I love these fun card ideas!
