    Quick Mother's Day Gifts That'll Make Her Day

    Did Mother's Day sneak up on you this year? Show mom how much you love and appreciate her with a great gift that doesn't take too long to put together. We've gathered a list of the best last minute DIY Mother's Day gifts, all of which are sure to put you up for “Child of the Year!”

    Coffee Stand
    If she loves her morning cup of coffee, then a coffee stand is at the top of the list! You'll want to incorporate all the essential elements: a mug holder, jars for coffee beans and sugar, a caddy for spoons and anything else your mom uses for her perfect cup. Make sure all the elements fit your mom's style and decor. You can go the extra mile by making the mug holder from salvaged pieces of wood or adding framed pictures of family into the arrangement. Keep in mind this idea works for other beverages like tea and wine.

    Customized Kitchen
    Ordering customized gifts requires time and planning, but making customized gifts can be done last minute. Kitchen accessories are a great place for customization. You can use a wood burning pen to burn words into ordinary cutting boards and porcelain pens to write on ceramic mugs and plates. If free hand writing or drawing isn't your forte, there are tons of image transfers available online and in craft stores.

    Mason Jar Sewing Kits
    Moms that love sewing will enjoy the thoughtful organization of these Mason jar sewing kits. The project is fairly simple and most of the work will be organizing mom's sewing kit into the appropriate jars. This is near the top of the list for longevity!

    Pretty White Chocolate Bark
    For moms with a sweet tooth, whip up some pretty white chocolate bark. Use food coloring to make lovely pastel-colored bark, then sprinkle in edible flowers, edible glitter and chocolate pearls for the prettiest dessert mom will eat on Mother's Day.

    Homemade Spa Experience
    Help mom relax with homemade beauty products. You can make everything from soap to bath bombs to scrubs, but an easy, no-fuss item is a bottle of milk bath. Soaking in milk restores the skin and just feels great.

    Mix together:
    1 ½ cups powdered milk
    ½ cup baking soda
    ½ cup cornstarch
    ½ cup Epsom salt
    10-20 drops of essential oil (lavender and rose are excellent choices)
    Package the milk bath in a pretty bottle with instructions to use about 1/2 cup per bath. Not only do beauty products make fun Mother's Day gift ideas, but you'll also enjoy putting them together.
