If you’re looking for a unique way to show your Mom how much she means to you, there’s nothing like a homemade gift. These DIY Mother’s Day gifts brought to you by Jansen Chevrolet will have the mothers in your life feeling appreciated, loved, and cared for.
With a little scavenging at your local thrift store and the help of a few tutorial videos, it’s easy to make your own candles. Pick your mother’s favorite scent, then purchase the oils, wax, and wicks online. Make your homemade candles in dainty teacups or pretty, unique vintage wares from the thrift store or antique mall.
Lavender is known for being a light and relaxing scent that helps improve sleep. Make your mother a lavender sachet for under her pillow by sewing dried lavender into patterned fabric. Add other soothing scents like dried chamomile and rose petals so that your Mother can pick her scent each night.
Sugar scrubs are easy to make and are a great way to bring the spa day to the moms in your life if you’re on a budget. A good, basic recipe is 1 cup of sugar to 1/2 cup of an oil like jojoba, almond, or avocado oil. From there, you can add your own combination of essential oils, dried flowers or tea, or even coffee grounds for a morning wake-up scrub. The recipient of these scrubs is sure to feel pampered and adored. Especially, knowing that you made these relaxing scrubs just for them!
