No sooner that Valentine’s Day is out of the way, Mother’s Day starts to loom large on the calendar. I love giving homemade presents and gifting experiences over things, but a little handmade gift is also a great idea. Sometimes a little extra thought means a lot, and making something as a gift can mean so much more. So here are some great ideas for homemade gifts for Mother’s Day that you can make yourself.

Homemade Gifts For Mother’s Day

Whilst Mother’s Day does stem from the religious calendars, I do feel that as with a lot of holidays, it has become too commercialised. Making a handmade gift brings it back to being a personal and thoughtful holiday in my book.

My mum would love all of these gifts, and they are also things that I would love to receive.

A Handmade Drawstring Bag

See the tutorial here.

These can be made in all sorts of sizes, for all manner of uses. Why not make one large enough for laundry? Or small enough to be used as a wash bag for holidays? Plus, by using a feature fabric, they can be further personalised to your own mother’s taste and style.

If you make one small enough, it can be a very useful bag to use for a bought shower gel bar too.

A Washcloth Soap Holder Pouch

Why not buy a bar of your mother’s favourite soap, shower gel bar or shampoo bar, and present it within a personalised washcloth soap holder? Costs very little, but means a lot.

Hand Sanitiser Gel Holder

Especially at this time of year and with all the viruses going around, it is good to know where your hand sanitiser gel is! Stop your mum from having to fumble around in the bottom of her bag by making a hand sanitiser gel holder that clips to her bag or belt hoop.

See how to make them here.

Chapstick/Hand cream holder

In a similar style, you could make a chapstick holder to hang alongside the hand sanitiser holder. I use mine for a teeny hand cream, for using after the sanitiser gel.

Here is a great tutorial.

Fabric Bookmark

Is your mum a fan of fiction? A bit of a bookworm? If you know that she would love a certain book, then do buy it for her. But why not also make her a personalised bookmark? These are great gifts for avid readers, and again can be easily personalised.

Handmade Fabric Bookmarks - great fabric bookmarks with an elasticarted loop to fit over books. Scrapbusting and zero waste idea for using up fabric scraps. Great gift idea for teachers at Christmas or end of term. Lovely gift idea. Make your own. DIY.

Some Bath Bombs

Whilst you can find so many of these out on the high street, it is so easy to make your own. And tailor them to what your mum would like using her favourite scented oils. And they are so much more natural that some that you can buy.

How To Make Your Own Bath Bombs - bath fizzes can be so expensive, but here is a tutorial on how to make your own cheaply and easily at home! Make great gifts too. #DIY #bathbomb #diycrafts #diyprojects #makeyourown #bathbombs #bathtime #giftideas #diygifts

See how we made ours in this post.

A Reusable Sandwich Wrap

These are such an easy make, and perfect for the mum who takes a packed lunch to work. Plus they are great for the environment, as they reduce the amount of plastic sandwich bags that need to be used. You mum will love the fact that she need never buy a ziplock bag again!

Reusable Make Up Remover Pads

I actually haven’t made a tutorial on how to make these yet, but they are actually just a smaller version of the reusable kitchen roll tutorial you can find here. I make mine as squares rather than circles, because that way no cloth is wasted.

Ear Phone / Small Change Pouch

These cute little porches are perfect for holding a small amount of change for parking or a trolley. Or for protecting  your earphones.

This is a great tutorial.

A Handmade Card

And finally, don’t forget a handmade card to go along with your homemade gift. By using a little bit of appliqué, you can make a lovely personalised card. I would use a free motion embroidery technique, like I used in my free motion embroidered decorations. Just sew it onto the card at the end.
