6 DIY Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Last Minute and Low-Budget Shoppers

Wondering what to do for Mother’s Day? Well, if you’re a procrastinator or are just stuck for good ideas, I want to share some really good ones you can use even last minute. If you don’t have all that you need, you might want to give her a photo or hint and deliver later.

6 DIY Gifts to Give Mom this Mother’s Day

1. Breakfast in Bed.  Now please, with this one, don’t wake her up. Keep it personalized to HER needs. She may not want pancakes. She might want fresh juice, a cup of tea, and her favorite book. Absolutely make sure she has a flower or a few sprigs of lavender and rosemary to bring a fresh and relaxing aroma to the morning.

2. Make an entire day just for her: She’s given years. So give her a day. This day should push her out of her normal day (sans kids) and into the world. Be generous and stock her wallet with some funds so she can have a pampering adventure meant just for her.

3. Spoil her with plants: This is a tried and true way to celebrate most women, but you’re going to go above and beyond by keeping it easy and fresh. Very popular and loved options right now are varieties of air plants and succulents. They don’t require much and make a beautiful accent wherever they are placed.

4. Create a digital album of her photos: Odds are, somewhere in your mom’s house, there are stacks of faded old photographs or negatives stuffed into envelopes. They might be pictures of her as a child, or her mother, or her mother’s mother, and they deserve to be appreciated once again. Put a smile on your mother’s face by unearthing these family gems and bringing them into the 21st century. Scan and upload a bunch of images so that there are digital copies of them that can easily be shared and printed.

5. List the reasons you love her: Among the DIY Mother’s Day gifts suggested by Today.com is a decorated mason jar stuffed full of adorable and funny messages about why mom is the greatest. For example: “You give the best hugs,” or “You don’t snore as loud as dad.” The idea is that mom can open up the jar each day or whenever she needs a pick-me-up, and get a reminder about how amazing she is, and how much all of you appreciate her.

6. Make a home spa basket: Another spoil-her-silly option, this one is a hit. Get a box or a basket and fill it with her favorite ways to relax as well as throwing in some new things. Some ideas could include: a bottle of red wine, some lavender or chamomile tea, bath salts, Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, an eye pillow and maybe even a good book!

As you can see, it’s not so hard. So go ahead, dote on her like never before. We’re proud to honor her with you!

What other ways do you spoil Mom? We want to hear about it in the comments, and don’t forget to share this with the buttons below!

Incredibly Healing Natural Remedies Mom Would LOVE to Have.

Incredibly Healing Natural Remedies Mom Would LOVE to Have.

There’s a lot of talk about different home remedies and the moms out there can become overwhelmed with their options. That’s why YOU are amazing and finding out all the information FOR her, today.

You’re so kind.

Essential oils make the perfect gift for Mother's Day this year, as they will not only help her feel like a queen, but also increase her immunity and ease common everyday discomforts!Here’s the thing.  Did you know that the pharmaceutical companies create their top medicines from the active healing properties of plants?  (then they take them to a lab and add a bunch of chemicals and additives that are totally unnecessary and further damaging to your health…but that’s another story) For now, I want to focus on the alternative options you can gift mom with this year.  Because she deserves it and you love her. Right?

Peppermint:  First of all, peppermint is absolutely incredible. The essential oil of this miraculous herb is so multi-functional.  It calms the digestive system, fires up metabolism, eases tension and boosts your energy! People have compared used this oil in place of over the counter stomach relievers/antidiarrheals, energy drinks and even pain relievers!  Simply place a few drops on your forehead, temples, around your belly, on your shoulders and even on the bottom of your feet!  You’ll be surprised at the results.

Lavender: Lavender is one of the best oils you can keep on hand. In addition to its incredible scent, it addresses a spectrum of benefits from easing pain, calming the nerves and anti-viral to fight germs, bacteria and viruses.  People have replaced anti-biotic ointments, pain relief meds, sleep aids and muscle rubs with the oil of this incredible plant.

Lemongrass: This is a great one for it’s scent and uplifting nature!  It can be combined with all the other oils I’m suggesting to you. Not only with it’s smell but also for it’s healing benefits! Lemongrass has long been used in Asian and Caribbean cooking due to its subtle lemony flavor and aroma. It shouldn’t surprise you then, at this point, this plant oil is anti-viral, uplifts moods, calms the nerves, great for jet-lag and even as a bug repellent! For topical use, make sure you mix 1 -2 drops into about 1TBSP of coconut oil, as the oil can be too strong on the skin.  Just mix and rub on needed areas or diffuse in a room to breathe in it’s benefits.

Eucalyptus: Our absolute favorite, of course, is Eucalyptus, for it’s incredible power to fight and kill viruses, germs and general illness when inhaled in natural air or steam.  It’s essential properties go into the body and open up bronchial and nasal passages, all while beating the illness living in them.  Relaxing, energizing and healing – this oil in spray form can be used as a room spray, home cleaner and sauna/steam room enhancer.  It’s a necessity in any conscious mother’s medicine bag.

I hope that helped give you a few more ideas to prepare for Mother’s Day. It’s coming soon, so make sure you are prepared to give her a gift she absolutely deserves.  From all of us at Eurospa, Happy Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day: The Gift She’ll Love All Year

Mother’s Day: The Gift She’ll Love All Year

Mothers are beyond deserving of honor and every year, we stress about just what to get these incredible women.  After all, thy know what they want and shop perfectly well for themselves.  But you don’t want to be that person that repeated presents gift cards, do you?  Nothing wrong with gift cards, but the personal thought that goes into a personalized gift speaks volumes of gratitude to these nurturing givers. 

mother's day gift ideas for moms that deserve love, honor and pampering.  Create their own spa day, post workout recovery treatment, cold remedy and skin cleansing system.  What if you were able to impact their life every single morning in a way that would change their attitude about the day right at the start? What if I were to tell you that there was a gift you could give that would not only start a lady’s day right, but give her a healthier body and even more beautiful skin?  

My suggestion?  Give her her own personal sized Eucalyptus Shower Spray.   This may seem over simplified, but once you know the benefits (and how much women love multi-beneficial gifts) I promise, you will see what a treasure it is and how wonderful of a gift it is to give. 


  • Applying eucalyptus oil to your forehead can be incredibly soothing for stress headaches in the same manner as peppermint oil. (see below) Like peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil can soothe, relax muscles and clear nasal passages.  It’s great to inhale as well, because it has anti microbial properties that can help attack germs and viruses that may be causing the headache. Either put a few drops of eucalyptus oil into a bowl of steaming water and inhale deeply or take advantage of our Eucalyptus Oil Shower Spray, while enjoy a nice shower or bath!
  • If she enjoys working out, she’ll likely want to avoid sore muscles after the work out.  For topical help, spray onto muscles followed by another oil base, like almond or jojoba and you’ll quickly have a muscle recovery rub!  The oil penetrates deep into the tissue (more so in the heat of the sauna) for an anti-inflammatory effect.  When using the spray, simply spritz into the shower steam or the sauna/steam room.  The oil in the air will then enter your lungs and be carried off to nurture the needier parts of your well-worked muscles.  
  • Most women love to look their best.  One simple way is to steam and cleanse the skin.  Go traditional and simply add our eucalyptus shower spray to one pint of steaming water in a large bowl or pot. Lean over the container, covering your head with a towel and allow your face to take in the steam for 5-10 minutes. (Alternatively, while your in the bath, add it to the bath water) This supports the skin’s natural self cleansing functions, opening pores and reducing buildup and eruptions.
Mother’s Day is a wonderful time to celebrate the beautiful women in our lives.  Whether sister, friend, grandparent or your own mother, be sure to honor these nurturers that give themselves to love year after year.   Tell her she’s beautiful.  Treat her to pampering.  Give her the gift that loves back.   
Happy Mother’s Day.
