Mother’s Day is approaching and it leaves us with that big question, what to get the mothers in your life? Speaking as a momma, nothing is more touching that a hand-made gift. Well, maybe there is one thing: a handmade gift that inspires a Mom to take care of herself.
Here are four handmade, self-care gifts that you can whip up, just in time for Mother’s Day. And while you’re at it – I hope you make something for yourself too!
Hand-Made Gifts for a Mom
1. Rose Petal & Cinnamon Bath Soak
If Mom enjoys a good soak, this bath salt will WOW her!
The recipe calls for rose petal tea, but you can use any herbal tea that smells nice.
How to Gift Package it: A glass mason jar, or even a repurposed jam jar can be beautiful!
Definitely include a little cloth bag, like this, that she can scoop the bath salt into. That way Mom doesn’t have bits of petals to clean up after her bath :)
2. Summertime Breeze Body Oil
Everyday, Mom can envelop herself in a luxurious, naturally fragranced and super nourishing body oil – that will make her feel beautiful, as she should!
How to Gift Package it: Look for a glass pump bottle, like a soap dispenser.
The herbs won’t travel up the tube! I found my bottle at Ikea in their bathroom section.
3. Spring Chocolate Beauty Bliss Balls
This will make Mom happy for sure! It’s a creamy body scrub that smells like a brownie baked in a flower shop.
It’s made with real chocolate, She’ll giggle, she’ll smile and feel delighted.
How to Gift Package it: Let’s be real, this looks good enough to eat. But it won’t taste good. Make sure Mom knows this is whole food skincare – a treat for her skin!
Package it in a glass jar… or you know what would be cute, is to package them like little truffles in a box.
4. SIMPLIFY Skin Seasons: Spring
Is Mom a do-it-herself, take charge kind of woman?
I had to include the SIMPLIFY Skin Spring guide in the round-up. It’s a beautiful digital recipe guide, that will have her inspired and making her own self care products.
How to gift package it: You can print it out and show up with the ingredients for a fun DIY session together. I think that would be amazing!
Or, send her the digital version so that she can open up her pantry and make something good for herself at home.
To all the Moms out there, I’m sending you a big hug. Remember to treat yourself well, you’re amazing!
PS: Make sure to add a handwritten card with the recipe and the directions for how to use it!
