Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you’ve waited till the last minute to get mom something, we’ve got a few ideas for you! Any mom will be impressed with these sweet and unique gifts that go beyond a regular bouquet of flowers.
Decorated Coffee Mugs
This is a wonderful gift for the mom who can’t get through her first hours of the day without a hot cup of coffee. To put together a DIY Sharpie Mug you need a plain white mug from the dollar store and oil-based paint markers because other types of markers will rub off after you are finished decorating. You can draw a cute picture, write an inspirational quote or make a fun pattern across the surface. Let the mug dry for several hours before baking it in the oven for thirty minutes — do not pull the mug out of the oven right away or the cold air will cause it to crack. Surprise your mom by serving her a cup of her favorite coffee in her customized present over breakfast.
A Framed Picture or Photo Album
Nothing will make a mom happier than receiving a picture of her loved ones on Mother’s Day, so get a sweet photo and present it in a stunning frame. You can find a variety of beautiful picture frames, holders, and easels on photoroost, a website carrying on the heartfelt tradition of making and sharing a family photo album. The digital scrapbooking website carries frames that are made of reclaimed and repurposed materials like century-old barn boards and vintage silver-plated dinner forks. The moment that she sees this magnificent gift she will want to display it on the mantelpiece in the living room, on the desk in her office or right on top of her coffee table.
DIY Teacup Candles
In the same vein as reclaimed wood and utensil picture frames, these DIY candles take something old and turn into something brand new — all you need is a beautifully patterned teacup, a stove top and a handful of supplies to make this gorgeous gift. Wipe the teacup clean, place an assembled wick along the bottom and then melt all of your wax flakes in a double-boiler on your stovetop. If you want to make your own scented candle, add several drops of a fragrance oil into the wax after it has cooled — putting the oil into the mixture when it is still hot will make it evaporate before the project is done. Hold the wick in place with chopsticks and pour the mixture into the cup until it reaches just below the rim, and in several hours your candle should be completely solid and ready to gift.
Products To Pamper Her
What better way to show mom you care than a gift basket of amazing products to pamper her skin? The first thing you need to put in her basket is Cargo’s new Swimmables Longwear Liquid Foundation! This amazing new weightless, ultra-fluid foundation is waterproof, sweatproof and weatherproof so mom doesn’t have to worry! Grab a beautiful shade of Cargo Cosmetics Blush, her favorite shade of lipstick, the new Hard Candy Look Pro Eye Palette in Rosegold and a YBF Universal Taupe Eyebrow Pencil to go with it. Your mom will love playing with her new makeup!
Next thing to go into your gift basket should be Freeze Radiance Brightening Face Masks. Pamper your mom with a face mask that will have her feeling like she’s at a spa! Just $60 for 8 masks that are specially formulated by top dermatologists to help skin regain luminosity and restore vitality to make you look younger. It is made with Telangyn which is proven to not only improve skin tone, alleviate dullness, and prevent redness, but it can eliminate acne too.
Don’t forget Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray to help keep her new hairdo in a place after her trip to the salon. We love Oscar Blandi hairspray for its non-sticky hold that lasts all day and provides shine and bounce to hair.
