Easy Mothers's Day Ideas
If your mother loves to read, you can make a scented bookmark for her. Cut felt fabric in a cute pattern and add a few drops drops of essential oil on it. Glue it to a paper clip and your easy bookmark is ready!
Make sure your mum never has a bad day by gifting her a love jar. Jazz a glass jar with glitter and slip tiny notes in it about how special she is or funny incidents. Ask her to read a note whenever she is in a bad mood.
Breakfast in Bed
A perennial mother’s day favourite, no mother can resist a relaxing day in bed. Start her day on a happy note by preparing a healthy and yummy breakfast. Bond over steaming coffee and gossip with your mother.
If your mom and her cell phone are inseparable, make a cute phone cover. Take a soft fabric with an interesting print. Cut it according the phone’s measurements and sew the open ends of the pouch.
