A friend asked me the other day about my plans on Mother’s Day. I started to answer with everything that I was expected to say.. Things like I am going to buy her flowers and chocolates.. And then I stopped. I knew I would be lying. I had actually planned nothing for Mother’s Day this year. Between changing jobs and catching up with friends, books and movies, I almost forgot all about it. And the truth also is that I am not someone that believes in the customary exchange of gifts on occasions. I think special days like my mother’s birthday or Mother’s Day are too important to make a light-hearted event of it. So, here are a few DIY Mothers Day Gifts to express your love for your mom on her special day.
