DIY Gifts Makes the Best Birthday Gift Idea for Mom
Of all the gift ideas for mom, going with your very own homemade birthday gifts will never go wrong. Coming with brilliant homemade birthday gifts ideas for mom is not too difficult. All it takes just a bit of creativity on your part.
Scrapbook is one nice homemade birthday gifts for mom. It is a classic gift that has stood the test of time and remains popular even today. This gift idea is popular with teenages, particularly among daughters to give it to their moms. In today’s age of Instagram, one wonders the relevance of scrapbook.
Well, it still is and with the availability of such services as Instaprint, just pick few of your mom’s favorite Instagram photos, print them out and put them together into a scrapbook. You can attach messages to each photo that will let your mom know how much you cherish those moments shown in each picture.
Express Your Love with Message in a Bottle
Message in a bottle is another nice homemade brithday gift for mom. Compared to a scrapbook, this will generally take less effort. All you need is to get a nice shaped and transparent bottle.
You can select from either rectangular, tube or triangular bottle. The bottle itself should not cost that much. The key is not in the bottle, but in the birthday message that you put inside it.
One interesting idea is to put say 12 messages in the bottle. Every month, you can ask your mom to randomly pick one of the unopened message. But you don’t have to stick to this rule. You can be creative in many ways. You can make it a weekly affair where mom and you will sit down to read out a different message.
Your Chance to be a Movie Director
Other than scrapbook and message in a bottle, you can try becoming your own director and create a short tribute clip.
One idea is to get your brothers, sisters, dad and even relatives to record a short birthday wish for your mom and you put them all in one video. You can put it on Youtube and share it with the world if you want. Otherwise, it makes it available for your mom to watch anytime she wants to.
No Time for DIY? Personalize Your Gift for Mom
Every Woman Loves Beautiful Jewelry
One of a mom’s greatest trait is the willingness to put her children’s interest above hers. That is why a mom will without second thought, put aside her personal desires if she has to choose between her personal needs and that of her children.
One such need is jewelries and accessories. That is why it is always a sweet idea to buy beautiful jewelry pieces as birthday gifts for mom. You can add personal touches on those jewelries.
Many jewelry retailers offer free personalized engraving services when you buy from them. Depending on the type of jewelry that you pick, you may be able to put certain phrases like ‘I Love You, Mom’.
For certain such items as pendants, the limitation on how many characters you can put is often not imposed by the jewelry maker but the size of the engraveable area instead.
So, if you want to engrave a longer message, you will typically want to go for disc pendant where you have a larger area to engrave your personalized message.
Gift Baskets Can Make Cool Gifts for Mom
Birthday gift baskets for mom is another cool gift idea for mom that is seeing an increase in popularity in recent years. The idea that gift basket is boring and reserved only for such items as fruits and canned foods is quickly becoming obsolete.
These days, gift basket may be made up of virtually any kind of items and the term ‘basket’ is no longer constrained to boring rattan or bamboo baskets. The ‘basket’ used these days comes in many attractive design, shapes and materials.
One example of birthday gift basket for mom is the SPA gift basket where you can typically find SPA essential elements from scented bath gel to soothing bath salt to exfoliating body scrub in one basket.
Then there is the appreciation gift basket for tea lovers where you have dozens of tea flavors in one basket. The list is of course endless. If you can think of it, chances are you can find it off-the-shelf.
While there are many options readily available as birthday gifts for mom, you can of course decide to get (or even create) your own basket and choose to customize the contents that you want to be included.
As you can see, giving your mom a gift basket on her birthday is definitely a sweet way to present her with some of the things that she has always wanted to get.
