There's nothing mum loves more than a heartfelt gift that shows how much she means to you. So, with Mother's Day on the horizon, we thought we'd give you some Do-It-Yourself Mother's Day gift inspiration to say, 'thank you' and 'I love you' with sincerity. Sure beats a bunch of wilted flowers or a box of melted chocolates any day.

Mum's Survival Kit

Being a mum is hard. It's an endlessly exhausting and often thankless job. Think about the items your mum uses to get her through the day - her individual treats and indulgences -  and create your own individual Mum's Survival Kit filled with her favourite things. Items might include chocolates, exotic tea brews, her preferred coffee pods, massage vouchers, beauty products, mini champagne bottles or even a Mother's Day engraved hip flask!

DIY Beauty Products - Sugar Scrub

Treat your mum to an organic, easy-to-make beauty product using a few simple ingredients from your kitchen. You will need: 1 cup raw or brown sugar 1/2 cup coconut or almond oil (depending on which scent you prefer) 1/2 cup olive oil 1 cup white sugar All you’ll need to do to create this deluxe beauty product is follow these steps:

  1. Mix

Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl. (If you need them a little more malleable, feel free to heat the coconut oil and sugar in the oven beforehand).

  1. Stir

Stir the mixture to blend all ingredients and when you are happy with the consistency, fill a mason jar with a personalised gift tagwith the aromatic scrub.

  1. Add (optional)

Depending on the aroma and the therapeutic benefits your mum would like best, you can add essential oils to your scrub if you so desire. If homemade beauty products aren't your mum's cup of tea, win the 'Favourite Child Award' with a Mother's Day '30 Reasons Why I Love You' Mason Jar with Wooden Hearts.

Picture frame featuring yours truly

Give your mum the gift of you this Mother's Day! Select a cherished moment you and your mum have shared that was caught on camera and print it off to give to her in a stylish Engraved Silver Mother's Day Photo Frame Keepsake. If you want to go all out you can DIY a frame from scratch, or make a few personal additions to a plainer frame, but we'll leave that part up to you.

Homemade Mother's Day card Ok, so maybe you're just not a DIYer. You can still get mum a store-bought gift and show her how much you care by adding your own personalised gift tag or making your own card. Our point is, on Mother's Day it really is the thought that counts so get organised, put some effort in and celebrate mom in the way she deserves.
