Mother's Day Gift Guide | Gifts under $50

Gift giving can be overwhelming. No, not you? Well, I know I find it challenging to find something unique and meaningful - something that doesn't just add to the clutter. 

What do they need? What do they want? What would encourage them? What would help them? 

Throughout the year, I pin and save gift ideas so I have some ideas ready when I need them. I will share some of my favorite gift ideas from my favorite shops. The ideas shared are all under $50 and DIYs to celebrate the mamas you know and love!

Handmade Homemade gift ideas

Call me crazy, but I would rather spend time at home making a gift then spending time in a packed mall.

One of my favorite gifts that I made was for my sister-in-law. She loves to host parties at her house, so I put together a Gold Themed: Party-in-a-Box gift package! 

What you'll need:
1. Thank you cards or Invites
2. Drink Stirrers
3. Banner/Garland
4. Cupcake mix and cupcake liners
5. Candles
6. Gift for the hostess

How I did it:
For the invites/thank yous - I bought blank white cards and made a heart shape with glue and sprinkled glitter. 

For the drink stirrers - I bought skewers and wrapped feathers to them.

For the candles - I bought glass jar candles and used spray adhesive and glitter to make them pretty. 

Paper banner/garland - I took my heart puncher and sewing machine to make a banner for the party. It's quite easy if you have a sewing machine.

I bundled it all together with labels and fun wrapping. It's simply, but takes some time to put it all together! 

Hope this helps give you some last minute ideas.
