Mother’s Day is three weeks away! I won’t lie… I LOVE the personal, sentimental touch of a handmade gift.
And, quite honestly, who appreciates your creativity like your momma?!?
I have pulled together several past knock-off projects that would make lovely gifts for that special lady in your life.
And, of course, they are all inspired by high-end items, so Mom will think you spent way more than you actually did!
Give Mom the gift of relaxation with a few homemade bath bombs like these from Christina at Intimate Weddings. You could even pair them with magazines and a plush robe for a spa-inspired gift basket!
