First, an easy tutorial for making some pretty teacup candles. These are a good way to use up the leftover wax at the bottom of a glass votive, too.
This handmade lapis necklace can be personalized with yours and your sibling's initials, and I think it's an elegant alternative to the usual mom-and-kid jewelry out there, $64.
If your mom is a bookworm, she might appreciate a new holder for her e-reader, like this tongue-in-cheek hardcover "book"for $64.
Don't these cake pops look tasty? Even if your mom's not a huge fan of flowers ("I love you, here's something that dies right away!"), I bet she wouldn't mind opening a box to a sunshine-y cake bouquet, $28.
And because one can never have too much storage, a DIY for recovering old boxes (or journals) in cute fabric. Heck, you could put those cake pops inside one of these!
So what are you getting your mom this year? Are you making her anything? What's the best/funniest/nicest thing you've given? I was 11-ish and I got the wild idea to sew her a pair of pot holders out of some leftover fabric I had used to make some kind of Renaissance outfit. They were the ugliest things I'd ever seen, but she still displayed them in the kitchen for a while anyway. What a good sport.
