Don’t want to cheap out on mother’s day? Are you looking for special gifts for mom on a budget? Below are some fantastic and cheap mother’s day gift ideas – you could even make a couple of these out of your kitchen and bathroom cupboards!
I won a trip to a spa resort in Arizona a few years back and when I was there I discovered that many of the new high end spa treatments were completely natural and made of food products we use every day. The following gifts you can make yourself are classy because they are simple and could be found at a high end spa!
Brown Sugar Body Scrub
it’s as simple as olive oil and brown sugar in a jar. if you have food-grade essential oil, you could add a few drops to kick it up a notch!
DIY Lush-style Bath Bombs
Ok….. This is getting fancy. I am obsessed with the store Lush , where they make by hand all of their awesome beauty and bath treatments. If you ever have the chance to stop in, please do – you won’t be disappointed. They will give you a demo where you get to try their awesome products for free. You leaving the store smelling good for the rest of the day. Only problem is, their products cost an arm and a leg to someone on a budget. Check out the above link for a DIY Lush bath bomb tutorial! The tutorial suggests you add dried flowers – and I highly recommend that you do. Flowers make everything so much more fun, right?! Yay!
Honey Vanilla Hand Soap
Honey is such a wonderful diy beauty treatment. It’s great for your skin and can even be used to ease the common cold. Vanilla is a wonderful, stimulating scent that we women just love! This simple & diy foaming bath soap is sure to make mom happy.
DIY Altoid Tin Cuticle Cream
OMG – I love love love the simplicity and cuteness of this project. If your mom is craft-minded, so will she. If anyone makes this, please let me know how it works out
