Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday and it’s all about creating bespoke gifts with a personalised touch. Here are a few simple and easy DIY ideas…
Personalized Canvas Bags
For this Mother’s Day, bring out your inner Picasso and make her a special one-of-a-kind tote bag. Whether you want to go with a simple or a more advanced typography design (say a quote or your mother’s name or initials) – it is really up to you. Plus, these tote bags are great for those fuss-free grocery visits! Check out this great tutorial by Ann-Marie Loves.
Jar Gift Sets
Instead of discarding your jam jars, use them as little gift boxes. If your mother likes to sew, throw in a cute sewing kit. Or if she likes to watch movies, buy her movie vouchers and a small packet of microwavable popcorn. The key is to personalize the contents of the jar to her interests. If you don’t already know this, it wouldn’t hurt to find out before the big day!
For the custom notebooks, print 1-3 photographs of you and your mother and stick it on top of a plain neutral coloured notebook. Give to her as a set of three notebooks, each with a different photograph, preferably of you two in different stages of your life (infant, teenager and adult). This is a great sentimental gift, which may even bring a tear to her eye.
Bottle Vases + Flowers
DIY projects are all about re-using and recycling materials in a purposeful and creative manner. Spray paint a couple of bottles and use them as a vase to compliment your flowers (maybe even mix-and-match your flowers?) Step outside the box, add a personal touch to your flower setting. Haven’t you heard? Traditional bouquets are so 2008! Check out this great tutorial by Aura Joon.
