8 DIY Mothers of the Bride and Groom Gift Ideas

It’s sometimes hard to find the perfect gift for Mum. Everywhere you look there seems to be the same traditional jewellery and lavish chocolates, pretty flower bouquets and health and beauty hampers. These are all wonderful gifts, but sometimes you want something just a bit more special. So we’ve put together a selection of 8 of our favourite DIY gifts that are perfect for the mothers of the bride and groom, and also Christmas, Mum’s birthday, or Mother’s Day.

For an equally fun and far more personal gift, try making one of these simple and lovely presents that Mum is sure to treasure.


1) Vintage Gift Boxes

Our blue-grey vintage boxes are not only very pretty—they’re also perfect for filling with miniature accessories like jewellery or for creating tiny gift hampers.

2) Gift Bag

On the other hand, you could go all-out and gift Mum a bag full of stuff to pamper her. Maybe she’s preparing to go on a short holiday or spa weekend? A gift bag of luxury getaway essentials like a personalised towel and nightgown is an easy and perfect DIY gift.

Present your bought bath salts, potpourri or incense to your mum even more beautifully with your own personalised bag or DIY container. From cotton bags stamped with a personalised message to miniature mason jars and picnic baskets, Confetti has a whole range of container ideas that will inspire you.

4) Music Collection

Maybe your mum has a great love of music? Our CD caddies are full of retro style, and they’re great for if you want to treat Mum to the full CD collection of one of her favourite music artists (or even a compilation of some favourite photos?).

5) Potted Plants

A traditional gift for mums is a gorgeous flower bouquet or potted plant. However, your potted plants could be so much more with a bit of DIY magic. Just look at these chic mini pinch pots and succulent mason jars:

6) Homemade Food

There are few things lovelier than offering your mum something homemade out of your favourite recipe book—you can be certain that your mum will appreciate all of the time and effort you put into it too—and you can put the proverbial cherry on top with a gorgeous container.

7) Homemade Drinks

Similarly, you could even make your own homemade drinks, from cider to Mum’s favourite smoothie, or put together a selection of wine, wine glasses, and cheese for Mum to try as a kind of stay-at-home wine tasting experience. (Here’s how to host your very own wine tasting party.)

8) DIY Display Drawer

Finally, you could take your DIY to the next level and create something like our DIY display drawer. The drawer comes as a completely blank slate, so you could personalise it in whatever way you like. This would be a perfect gift for mums who love arts and crafts and need somewhere to store their paints, brushes, needles, threads, and all manner of accessories.
