Crafty options – DIY Mother’s day gifts

Before you can select the perfect gift for your mom, let’s consider what type of gift you would like to present her with proudly. If you’re creative and want to show love and affection by creating something unique (and from the heart), you can indulge in a Mother’s Day DIY craft session. At least you will know that no one else’s mom will have the same gift (this year, that is – they may copy your idea next year)!

  • Cookies/cupcakes

Who says DIY arts and crafts have to be about paper and glue? Making your mom a beautiful batch of cookies or cupcakes is a great way to spoil her and put a little effort in at the same time. Ice the cookies or cupcakes in your mom’s favourite colour, package them in a beautifully decorated box, and deliver them with a smile. You really can’t go wrong with cupcakes and cookies!

  • Origami box & chocolate bark treat

Origami is a fun and creative way to make something for your mom without going the commercial I-just-got-this-from-the-shop route. Folding a pretty box and filling it with chocolate treats is a fantastic way to spoil your mom. The good news is, the things you need (paper/card and choccies) are relatively easy to get. You may need to learn how to fold an origami box, though – don’t worry – we already thought of that. Here’s a nifty tutorial for folding an origami box and making chocolate bark treats to go inside. You’re welcome.

Make up a treat basket

Gift baskets can be expensive to buy and have delivered. So if you’re fortunate enough to be in the same country as your mom (whether SA or abroad), you can opt to save money and put in the extra effort by making a Saffa gift basket for your mom.

First, go online and search for a cheap basket – you will find a multitude of suppliers. If you are in South Africa, a trip to Westpack will not disappoint. You can choose a large gift box or a basket – it’s really up to you. Then give it some thought – what are your mom’s favourite South African treats? Here are a few ideas:

  • Rooibos tea bags (a nice mug would be a lovely addition to your gift box/basket too).
  • Dried fruit
  • Chocolates

You can pull the gift together by including a pretty neck scarf, which can help you nicely display the treats.

Store-bought Mother’s day gifts

If you’re more interested in spending some money to spoil your mom on Mother’s Day 2021, here are a few options we have come up with:

  • Flowers – for a South African twist Proteas and Strelitzias are great options)
  • Plants – some moms are into gardening, and if your mom is one of those moms, you’re in luck! A trip to the nursery to buy a few of your mom’s favourite plants for her garden or pot plants is a great way to show her that you care about what she loves.
  • Books – if you know your mom’s favourite genre, buy a new or second-hand selection of books, pop them in a gift box with a few treats like chocolates and biltong.
  • Bath time spoils and bottle of wine – who doesn’t love a soak in the tub? If your mom is in SA, now is the perfect time to spoil her with bath-time treats, as the weather is getting chillier. Bath salts, scented candles, incense, bath foams, and oils all make for a lovely treat. Pair these treats with a new fancy wine glass and your mom’s favourite bottle of wine, and you’ve created the perfect scenario for her to pick a night, lie back and relax.
  • Cheese box – a cheese box with delicious crackers is the perfect gift. If you want to make it extra special, deliver this in a picnic basket with a blanket, some wine, and an invitation for your mom to spend a few hours picnicking and catching up with you.  If you’re in South Africa, a great place to get a cheese box is Graceland Cheesery.
  • Spa day/treat – does your mom enjoy a good pampering? Buy her a voucher for treatments at her favourite spa. Of course, don’t just hand this over in an envelope. Make it extra special by popping the voucher in a box with her favourite chocolates, a handwritten card/letter, and a flower. Now that’s a lovely gift!
