DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Mom’s Survival Kit
Perfect for that new mom you know, there is really no limit to what you can do with a survival kit. You can use a large mason jar and stuff it to the brim with things that a mom needs to get by every day: coffee; Chapstick; under eye concealer (because kids); really good chocolate not meant to be shared with anyone under the age of 18; a bottle of Tylenol; Kleenex; gum; etc. Get inspired on Pinterest.
You can use a Mason jar painted your mom’s favorite color, and fill it full of her favorite flowers. Decorated with a picture of her kids or grandkids, any mom will love this straight from the heart gift! Find some ideas here.
