Be kinder to your face! There's no need to use chemical-laden wipes to clean the makeup off your face at the end of the day. Use these natural, soothing wipes made with lavender essential oil, sunflower oil, and cotton pads instead.
Give mom the gift of facial rejuvenation! This is like a spa treatment in a jar without the spa price tag. Made with baking soda, herbal tea, and lavender essential oil, you can feel good about the ingredients you're using.
Any busy mom needs dry shampoo in her arsenal. It really saves the day when washing your hair just cannot be squeezed into the schedule. This version for brunettes is made with cornstarch, cocoa, and baking soda. You probably have all that in your cupboard right now!
There's something so rejuvenating about the smell of coffee—but this recipe isn't for your morning cup. Caffeine offers excellent benefits for the skin, such as skin tightening and improving circulation. Any mom would appreciate that.
Get those legs ready for pool season! In the summer, when you trade leggings for shorts and dresses, you want to put your best legs forward with silky smooth, moisturized skin. This scrub made with sugar, coconut oil, and lemon essential oil or citrus juice will help you do just that.
Speaking of smooth legs, you don't want to go to all that trouble exfoliating only to use harsh shaving creams (or worse—soap!) to shave your legs. This moisturizing DIY shaving cream makes shaving so much easier, and it's made with only two simple ingredients.
You may have wanted to make your own bath bombs before only to find that you lack one crucial ingredient—citric acid. Lucky for you, there's no citric acid involved in this bath bomb recipe. You'll find all the ingredients in your kitchen or pantry. A nice, long bath with some amazing-smelling bath bombs is just what Mom needs on Mother's Day.
Easy Sewing Projects to Give to Mom
You don't have to be a sewing guru to make something special for mom. These simple projects can be whipped up in a flash; they're so cute!
It's so hard to keep every piece of art that your kid makes, but this is such a fun way to keep something special. Give the kids some muslin or other material to draw a design on just for mom, and turn it into a simple pillow. This is a fantastic project for kids to sew since it can be hand-sewn, but moms or dads can help the little ones with that part.
This is such a sweet gift, particularly for moms of toddlers or preschoolers who may be missing their kids in those baby years. The pillow accents are made from baby clothes, which is a fun way to remember those snuggly baby years.
Mother's Day Gifts Kids Can Make
Finally, here are some gifts that the kids can make to celebrate Mom on her special day.
This is a gift that everyone can join in on, and Mom will treasure it forever. Get everyone's handprints in the same place at the same time to remember this season in life. It's especially meaningful now when we're all spending more time together.
Natural scents are indeed the best. This kid-made herbal perfume made with fresh herbs and flowers, essential oils, and water is such a thoughtful gift. It will only last a few days, but if you'd like it to last longer, use dried herbs and flowers in the mixture instead.
Science meets art with these hyper-colorful coffee filter flowers. Any caffeine-loving mom probably has some coffee filters on hand. You only need markers, pipe cleaners, and water to finish the project.
Handprint crafts make such beautiful keepsakes. Instead of real flowers, which fade with time, give Mom a bouquet of the family's handprints to tuck away in the scrapbook or memory box once Mother's Day is finished.
