There’s a reason Moms save and cherish all those school essays and art projects — and that reason is Love. Moms love unconditionally, and they especially love anything made by their children. With that said, nothing says, “I Love You right back, Mom” quite like a homemade gift — better yet, a homemade edible gift. In fact, we think it’s one of the sweetest DIY kitchen trends around!
We’ve scoured the Internet in search of some of the most thoughtful Mother’s Day gift ideas to make right in your own kitchen, and these three are sure to please. So settle in and start thinking about the ways you can show Mom just how much you appreciate all the big and little things she does for the family, each and every day of the year.
Mother’s Day Strawberries
Every Mom knows fresh strawberries and chocolate are a perfect pairing! Take inspiration from Martha Stewart, and pipe on sweet words that show Mom how much you care — just be sure to use both white and dark chocolate to make the letters pop. These treats are so simple to make, too. Just spread parchment paper lined baking sheets on your Kitchen Island, melt up some chocolate, dip, pipe, and let the berries chill until set.

Face it. Being a Mom is hard work, and sometimes Moms need an “adult” beverage after caring for, chasing, and carting the kids around 24/7. Help Mom unwind after a long day with this fun idea from Good Housekeeping — Infused Vodkas! These flavored spirits are easy to make, and oh so clever. Whether you make Spicy Citrus Vodka, Chai Vodka, or Cucumber Tarragon Vodka to keep in your bar room cabinetry, Mom will surely be delighted with your gift, and your sense of humor.

If tea and coffee is more your Mom’s speed, check out this sweet idea from Betty Crocker. All you need are a few plastic spoons, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and candy decorations. Get creative with sugar sprinkles, crushed peppermint, or a drizzle of white chocolate or caramel. For an extra special touch, swap out plastic spoons for beautiful vintage silverware.
