DIY Gifts for Mom in Under an Hour

Sure, you can go to a store and pick out something ordinary, but it takes time to find a special gift for mom, so instead, make something meaningful with your own hands! And while you are at it, make some extra for yourself to enjoy!

In honor of Mother's Day, I wanted to pull together some of the amazing quick and easy DIY gift recipes and ideas that I came across on our site made by the super creative feedfeed community.

Preserved lemons are a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine but add a delicate and beautiful brightness to any dish. I like to use them when roasting fish and in vinaigrettes for spring salads.
