D.I.Y. Mother’s Day Gifts

As most of us are aware (unless you are the unfortunately soul that has forgotten that Mother’s Day is this weekend, thus failing to get a present), this Sunday will be the day we all celebrate our moms for the awesome individuals they are. I’m not a card-and-flowers kinda gal, so finding a present that is worthy for my mom proves difficult. If you are like me, then you are going to need a few fresh ideas.

Here are some great D.I.Y. Mother’s Day gifts I found online and the links to the instructions. Whether you want to add a little extra to the present you already got her, or made the classic mistake of forgetting all together, these gifts will surely put a smile on your mom’s face.

Surprise mom with breakfast in bed and cook her up this incredible looking Caprese Eggs Benedict by the Curvy Carrot. Food is often the way to a woman’s heart, and I don’t think you can go wrong with this bad boy.

Happy Mother’s Day!
