- PAMPER GIFTBOX
Mums are known to put everyone’s needs before their own, so tell your mum to cut it out with a selection of body care goodies! You can make the box as big or as small as you like, and you probably already have a spare box floating around that can be covered with pretty wrapping paper.
- HAND PAINTED MUG
Giving mum a mug on Mother’s Day is always a safe bet. Take a simple mug to the next level by hand painting it yourself. If you’re handy with a brush you can create some very unique and stylish mugs your mum will treasure for years to come.
- FLORAL ROOM SPRAY
Choosing the right fragrance for your homeÂ can be tricky with the amount of products available. By combining fresh flowers from the garden, essential oils and filtered water in a spray bottle you can create Mum a home scent she’ll love. This is a project even the kids can do!
- HAND SCRUB HEARTS
There’s no need to spend a fortune on expensive skin care products this Mother’s Day.

Popping the end result in a nicely decorated air-tight jar means she can keep them on display and at hand in the kitchen or laundry to use when needed.
- HOT & COLD PACKS
Whip out that sewing machine, because these hot and cold packs are a great idea for mum. Over the years your mum has probably acquired a few aches and pains that weren’t there before! An effective natural remedy such as applying a hot or cold pack is great, and these ones are made using rice and fabric.
