  1. Flower Arrangement: Create a stunning floral arrangement with your favorite types of flowers. I love to use roses and tulips! You can use grocery store flowers to keep it budget-friendly. Arrange them yourself for a personal touch.
  2. Put Together A Pamper Kit: Give the gift of getting spa pampered but without the big price tag. Try making this easy homemade rose petal scrub or rose petal bath salts.
  1. Personalized Books or Puzzles: For example, a custom-made puzzle using a family photo or a personalized cutting board with her name engraved can make thoughtful presents. Compiling a beautiful collection of family recipes and having them made into a cookbook is another great option, and it can be done quickly and affordably using tools such as Canva.
  2. Bake Or Cook A Delicious Treat: Maybe you want to try something completely different this year for Mother’s Day. Try making a delicious loaf of homemade bread like this cinnamon raisin bread or the yummy rosemary parmesan bread. Or perhaps you make a small batch of strawberry jam or rhubarb or lilac syrup.
