Happy Friday! If you still have Mother’s Day planning to do, we’ve got you covered with last minute gift ideas, fun DIY projects, and charming ways to enjoy the day with your loved ones.

Flour, Not Flowers
Surprise mom with a dozen long-stemmed cupcakes! Make a batch of her favorite flavor and follow this guide to turn them into a delectable edible bouquet. 

Tender Loving Bling
Combine the indulgence of jewelry with a personal touch with this collection of keepsake necklaces, bracelets, and accessories. Our favorite are the custom pieces made from children’s artwork.

Get Carded
If she enjoys funny surprises, turn this April Fool’s jack-in-the-box into a one-of-a momento. Just pick a sweet photo of you and follow these instructions

Home Spa Day
Whether mom’s into a long relaxing soak in the tub or beautifying her hair, turn it into a luxury experience. Get the bathroom clean and sparkling, set up a tranquil music playlist, and place everything she needs in a wicker basket lined with white towels. These small, simple touches make a big difference!

Treat Her Like a Print-cess (get it?)
Put your color printer to work with free fun templates for a Mother’s Day crown, a book of Mother’s Day coupons, and a set of brunch in bed signs

Heartwarming Grub
Speaking of brunch in bed, we’re loving this heart-shaped egg-in-a-hole recipe for both style and flavor.

Above all, savor the time you get to spend with your family this weekend. That is a gift that you can give to yourself and your loved ones all year round!
