Spoil Mum with these simple (and impressive) DIY ideas!

Mothers day is quickly closing in and you might be stressing.
You love your mother (or aunt, grandma, anyone who is important in your world!), but you aren’t sure what to get her this year.

You’re tired of getting mum the same slippers and chocolates and want to show how much you care.
Nothing says you care more than making a gift, and I’m here to give you a few ideas!

I try to make gifts wherever I can. I love putting in time, effort and thought to create a unique present for someone I care for.
When I make gifts I try to make them time and money efficient, I’m a mother in a single income household so saving money is super important.

Here are four amazing ideas that you can make as a standalone gift, or if you have the time make them all and make a Pamper Hamper.

Whenever I am creating several items at a time, I like to work outside.
It is always best to create your masterpieces in a well ventilated area.
This is especially important when you have tiny humans or fur-babies running around!

Self-care is so important, yet it is something that many of us fail to achieve. Life gets so busy when there are kids, work, cleaning, pets, shopping, cooking.. I could go on!
Give mum the gift of self care with this amazing yet simple Bath Salt recipe.


So many not-so-good chemicals sneak into our bodies through all avenues, body wash is no exception! Give the gift of fresh, beautiful skin with this really beautiful Body Wash recipe.


Before I moved to Christmas Island I never really cared too much about my skin. It was always dry but never to the point of being a problem.
Since I got here it has kind of done a 180! My skin is now oily.
This sugar scrub is great for anyone (man or woman!) who want to exfoliate their precious faces without any of the harsh chemicals.


Ahh Perfume, how us women love thee.
Make a super quick 2 ingredient perfume with essential oils.
Yep, you heard right – TWO ingredients.
There is also an option for a more complex version which requires a bit more know-how, but don’t worry I have you covered for that too!


Wait did I say four awesome recipes? How about five!
Here is a little bonus for you lovelies.
If you are any good at baking (Which I am not, even though I try so hard), you could even throw in some quick and easy shortbread biscuits!
Here is an amazing DIY shortbread recipe with a twist! (an oily twist of course)

I really hope that this has been helpful for you to get some ideas and gifts together for that important woman in your life.
Worst case scenario – these will make for amazing pampering for yourself. You are so worth it!

If you don’t have any of these on hand you can head over to the amazing store My Essential Alchemy and get these products
