Homemade & DIY
There are many reasons to make a DIY Mother’s Day gift, whether it be budget constraints, not finding the perfect gift at a store, or wanting to give the personalized touch of a homemade present.
No matter the reason, Mom is sure to love one of these homemade vegan food gifts and crafts! If you’d like to DIY your own vegan gift basket, you can find an affordable basket, shredded paper, and a pretty ribbon, and fill up the basket with these DIY gifts.
Meringues are a wonderful gift because they have a long shelf life and can be made in many different flavors and colors. You can present them nicely in a cellophane bag tied with a ribbon in your DIY Mother’s Day gift.
These vegan coffee meringues are made with aquafaba, the liquid from a can of chickpeas, which can be used in baking as an egg white substitute. Aquafaba meringues have the same taste and texture as the real thing so she won’t miss the version made with eggs. If your mom is a coffee lover, she’ll be sure to savor these meringues and may appreciate the extra dose of caffeine.
Does Mom love to bake? Homemade vanilla extract is simple to make and makes a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. All you need is vanilla beans, vodka, and time! You can pour the vanilla extract into a nice bottle and decorate it with a handmade label and pretty ribbon.
It takes several months for the vanilla beans to infuse the vodka with flavor, so if you’re making a last minute Mother’s Day gift, you can add a note saying that it will be ready in time for fall and winter baking. It will be worth the wait and she’ll think of you whenever she opens the kitchen cabinet.
30. DIY Bath Bombs
Who doesn’t love a relaxing bath and a fizzy bath bomb? These vegan bath bombs are so easy to make with a few ingredients you can find at the grocery store. The bath bombs fizz due to a chemical reaction between baking soda and citric acid, similar to a science fair volcano you may have made in school, but with fun colors and divine scents for a spa night.
Thank Mom for always helping you with your school projects with a little relaxation with these DIY lavender bath bombs!
This homemade sugar scrub is also made with lavender, and for good reason: it’s a calming, relaxing aroma. If your mom has young children or a stressful job, this is just what she needs!
This sugar scrub is made with ingredients you probably already have at home: sugar, good-for-skin oil, and lavender buds. You can mix up the type of oil and scent to your mom’s preferences. The scrub would also be wonderful with coffee grounds (a natural exfoliant) or vanilla beans if you have some left over from your homemade vanilla extract!
