Whether you’ve already done your Mother’s Day gift shopping or you just can’t figure out what to give, we have some fun and easy DIYs that are sure to put a smile on Mom’s face this year!

Gift #1 DIY Water Marbled Mug Screen Shot 2018-04-30 at 3.47.52 PMJust beautiful! This colorful DIY water marbled mug is extremely easy to make! It’s also unique because no two mugs will ever look the same. All you’ll need is a disposable container, warm water, nail polish, and a mug (we picked up all of these materials at the dollar store).

Step One: Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.18.18 AMFill container with warm water and then pour in nail polish colors of your choice. Let the nail polish disperse a little. You can use a toothpick or a bobby pin to swirl it around a little.

Step Two: Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.18.36 AMNow you just dip you mug into the water and let the nail polish work its magic. Pull the mug out and let it dry for five minutes. You can put a layer of clear nail polish on top of it to seal it all in. We recommend just hand washing this mug!

Gift #2: Pedicure in a JarScreen Shot 2018-04-30 at 3.48.04 PMHead to the dollar store to get your supplies for this useful gift! A pedicure in a jar is honestly such a simple concept. But it’s something your Mom will definitely thank you for.

Step 1: Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.18.49 AMJust fill your medium to large mason jar with a layer of cotton balls. This will create a nice fluffy surface for the rest of the pedicure tools to lay on top of.

Step 2: Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.19.54 AMThe next step is to add all of the pedicure tools and nail polishes into the jar. Place the cap on the jar and decorate as needed. We added a pretty pink ribbon to keep things simple and cute!

Gift #3: All Natural Facial Wash Screen Shot 2018-04-30 at 3.48.16 PMYou can never go wrong with a nice DIY all natural skincare product! They are all the rage right now. This specific facial scrub/wash is amazing! And did we mention it can be made with items you may already have laying around your house?

Step 1:Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.21.09 AMFor this DIY, you’ll need a small resealable glass jar, baking soda, coconut oil, measuring tools, and tea tree oil (optional). You first need to measure out 1/3 cup of baking soda and place it into the jar.

Step 2:Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.21.21 AMNext, you will need to place 2 TBS of melted coconut oil into the jar.

Step 3: Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.21.32 AMAdd in about 5 drops or 1/4 TSP of tea tree oil into the jar.

Step 4: Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 11.22.37 AMThe final step in this DIY is to mix all of the ingredients together! Tell your Mom to gently rub a teaspoon or two onto her skin using small circular motions. Then she can just rinse with warm water, and dry. This gift will make her skin soft and smooth!
