These 8 Homemade Gift Ideas Will Make Your Mother's Day

As Mother's Day approaches, it's sometimes tricky to find the perfect gift for the woman who's given us everything. With a bit of creative thinking, you can put together unforgettable gifts, crafts and experiences.

In case you're short on ideas this year, here are nine lovely homemade things to do and make for Mom.

1. Arrange a beautiful bouquet of hand tied flowers

Have a look at our video Simple Flower Arranging, and give mom a taste of Spring with a hand tied bouquet. Only maybe don't mention if you nicked them from her garden...

2. Spoil her with a homemade treat


Let mom put her feet up, and indulge her with Mary Berry's Apple Strudel recipe (you really can't go wrong with this one!).

3. Make her the ultimate keepsake craft

Our step-by-step video How to Make a Baby Footprint Plaque will walk (ha!) you through this simple, adorable craft. Get creative, and help new mothers celebrate their little ones.

4. Get quilting

There's no better personal gift than a warm, colourful quilt. Watch our video Quilting: Simple Patchwork Quilt for a step-by-step tutorial.

5. Make some memories

Our Eggshell Mosaic Photo Frame craft is the perfect way to show off a cracking good photo of you and mom.

6. Wrap it up nicely
