Top 5 DIY Mother’s Day Gifts That Your Mum Will Love

Mother’s Day is wonderful time to reflect and honour one of the most important and influential people in our lives.

To trace the earliest history of Mothers Day, you’ll need to go back to ancient Greece, to the annual spring festival which the people dedicated to maternal goddesses. The Greeks used the occasion to honor Rhea, the wife of Cronus and mother of many deities of Greek mythology including the mighty Zeus.


Later, Mother’s Day was celebrated by early Christians on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ. In England the holiday was expanded to include all mothers. It was then called Mothering Sunday.

During the 19th century, thanks to the pioneering work of activist women like Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis, the day came to be celebrated all over the world as a time to pay tribute and reflect on the important role of mothers everywhere.

Today, Mother’s Day is recognised and celebrated in 46 countries (although not always on the same day).

Each year we show our mums how much we appreciate them on that special Sunday by endowing them with gifts and treating them to a little extra pampering.

All mums are different. Some like to garden, others like to tinker with crafts, while many mums love to spend time in the kitchen. Chocolates, slippers and fluffy dressing gowns are so boring and unimaginative!

Try to match your gift to your mum’s interests and passions, and if you really want to see her face light up, why not make a unique gift yourself. She’ll appreciate the thought, and the work that went into creating the gift so much more.

If you’re still at a loss as to what to give your mum for Mother’s Day, don’t panic. We’ve sorted mums into 5 categories according to their interests, and suggested a gift to match.
