10 DIY Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just round the corner and we thought you may need a little help to make the perfect present.

Here at The Chocolate Hedgehog we’ve come up with a list of some of the most unique and sickly sweet gifts imaginable. Just take a look…

1) Breakfast in bed

Admittedly, it’s not the most original idea in the world, but your efforts definitely won’t go unnoticed. You could even make heart shaped pancakes to add a little extra love! Try this recipe from skinnytaste.com

2) A homemade candle

Candles are surprisingly easy to make and all you need is some household items, beeswax and a candlewick. You could even get creative and make it in a teacup or a mason jar! Check out how to make them here.

4) Chocolate making kit

Every chocoholic’s dream. This Chocolate Making Party Kit from The Chocolate Hedgehog allows you to follow simple tips and recipes to make and pipe truffles, dip and decorate milk chocolate fudge and create flavoured chocolate bites (drool…). It’s a great way to spend time with your mum and show her how much you appreciate her. Just try to resist eating all the chocolate before Mothers Day!

5) Compliment jar

Perhaps a little cheesy but a compliment jar will show her how much she truly means to you and even give her a pick-me-up on her down days.

8) A blank cookbook for her to fill with family recipes

Having a personalised family cookbook not only brings together all the details of her favourite recipes, but it also means you can steal a couple tips for yourself too! Check out My Family Cookbook here.

9) Make a scrapbook filled with your favourite memories

Instead of a card this year, why not make a scrapbook filled with photos and trinkets? Search through those boxes of old photos to build a collection of some of the special moments you’ve shared together. Take a look at Etsy for some photo album inspiration!
