- The Jar Of Love. I made this for my mum last Christmas and she loved it. All you need is: a jar (old jam jars work really well), a pen and some coloured card. Then, you cut up the pieces of card and write on each one, a reason why your mum is 'the best mum in the world'. It could be anything, from: she makes delicious cakes to she takes me to school every day.
- Baking/cooking. This one is simple, just get out a recipe and make her a cake, or biscuit, and if you're feeling confident, you could even make a basic meal. DK's Cook It Step By Step recipe book, is perfect for food-lovers, and gives you a guide on how to cook with very simple instructions. For an amazing brownie recipe, check out this blog post.
- Make a photo album. Ask any of your relatives if they have any photographs of your mum, buy an album, and Hey Presto, you have a beautiful gift.
- Make a scrapbook. You could put some photos in, but also writing mini-articles on special moments with your mum, is a treasure for her to keep forever.
- Give her a hug. Sorry for the soppiness, but really, for your mum a hug is probably the best gift you could give her.
So, there you have it. Some gift guides for those panicky children right now, who haven't got their mum a present.
Let me know if you try any of these things!
