DIY Gifts for Mom

DIY Gifts for Mom in Under an Hour!


Sure, you can go to a store and pick out something ordinary, but it takes time to find a special gift for mom, so instead, make something meaningful with your own hands! And while you are at it, make some extra for yourself to enjoy!

In honor of  Mother’s Day, I wanted to pull together some of the amazing quick and easy DIY gift recipes and ideas that I came across on our  site  made by the super creative feedfeed community.

Preserved Lemons with Bay Leaves, Coriander and Dried Chilies


Photo and recipe by @mydarlinglemonthyme

Preserved lemons are a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine but add a delicate and beautiful brightness to any dish.  I like to use them when roasting fish and in vinaigrettes for spring salads.

Nothing says spring quite like the smell of freshly cut lilacs. Preserve these beautiful blossoms by making lilac sugar for mom. It’s great in tea, on top of muffins, or turn it into a simple syrup for cocktails!
