Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, and we all know it’s hard at times to find that perfect gift.  So rather than spending all that time buying mom “the perfect gift”, why not spend it making her something special as a gift.  These projects range from beginner to expert, so you should have no problem figuring out which one is the right fit for you (and mom!).

3. Breakfast in Bed… or Not



Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  So why not start your Mother’s day off right with a nice breakfast in bed!  It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, and you can use these easy tips to create the perfect meal.  These ideas can easily be translated to a delightful on-the-go breakfast as well by reusing a cereal box to hold the items for easy transportation and storage.

4. DIY Bath Bombs

Nothing beats a relaxing soak in the tub.  Add a bath bomb to the mix and you’ve got the recipe for a wonderful experience.  Try making homemade bath bombs to make it extra special, filling the space with soothing aroma in the process.  With nothing more than simple ingredients that you can pick up at any local Walmart or similar convenience store, you can create an amazing experience for mom using her favorite scents in the process!

5. Quality time!



Sometimes the best gifts in life are free.  When it comes to mom, this couldn’t be more true.  When was the last time you spent some quality time with your mother?  Make some time to spend it with her doing whatever she likes to do.  It doesn’t have to cost anything other than your time and attention.  Play a game of cards, cook a family dinner, help her with projects around the house, or just make the day all about her.  No gift could be sweeter or mean more to any mom.
