For those of you running a bit behind schedule this Mother's day, why not print your Mom off some of these Mothers Day coupons.

These cute coupons can be redeemed for "Breakfast in Bed", "Night off Cooking" or other things your mom will love. Download and print the coupons, and I'll show you how to bind them into a sweet matchbook-style booklet. There are also blank coupons in case you'd like to write your own.


Bath and Body Pamper Gifts for Mom

Back to Top

Who doesn't enjoy (need!) a bit of time and space to relax, and one of the nicest gifts you can give your Mom is some time for herself to relax and rejuvinate. Here is a selection from our Bath and Body recipes that we think she'll enjoy.

Making bath salts is especially easy and inexpensive, so perfect if you're a bit tight on time or budget, and I'm sure she'll really enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub! Add lavender essential oil and dried lavender petals to the epsom bath salt recipe for a beautifully fragrant, relaxing bath. Or use rose-petals and rose oil for a lovely feminine fragrance. There is plenty of advice on additional essential oil combinations included in this tutorial.


Using a homemade body scrub to exfoliate feels wonderful, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. Make some for your Mom this Mother's day using ingredients you'll find in your kitchen. I cover how to make sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, oatmeal scrubs, coffee scrubs, and more.

You'll be amazed at how gorgeous and life-like they look! Instead of using money, choose some pretty coloured paper - just cut your paper into note-sized rectangles, and the rest of the instructions are the same.

Or why not make a fabric flower for your Mom? Here we'll show you two methods using traditional sewing or a faster hot glue gun technique. Make one into a brooch or hairclip for your Mom, or even use to decorate clothing! A really inexpensive and quick to make homemade Mothers day gift idea.

When I think of Mother's day I immediately think of breakfast in bed! A lovely idea if you're still live at home with your Mom, but not so practical otherwise!

Another family classic is afternoon tea, and that is a great excuse to bake some delicious treats for your Mom. Here are a few ideas from the kitchen to help you out.

You'll find the chocolate truffles are smooth, dark, creamy and delicious... and really easy to make. This is a perfect homemade Mothers day gift idea for chocoholic Moms! Plus instructions for how to make your own gift box to present them in.
