This is a cool idea. You will be using one frame twice for taking pictures and then presenting that photo frame to your mom. It sounds a little confusing. So, here’s an explanation. You need to invest in a little planning before doing this DIY project. Think of a place which will serve as a good background for photos of both your mom and you. It’s best to have a muted background, or since it’s going to be a Christmas gift, a Christmas decoration would look best. E.g.: a Christmas tree.
The photos would look great if you dress in colour coordinating with your mom. First, get your photo clicked and printed. Then insert the printed photo inside the frame we’ve listed. Next, tell your mom to hold that frame and exactly stand at the same position. Remember to tell her to dress in the same colour that you’re wearing in the pic. Once she stands holding your framed photo, click her photo and get it printed. Now take out your solo pic, insert the new one and you have a unique photo of both of you. Gift this frame to her as a special Christmas gift.
- Can be wall mounted
- Can be kept on the table

If you need DIY Christmas gift ideas for mom which are also money-saving, then a homemade bar of soap is one of them. It is also a practical gift that she will enjoy using. Make the soap smell great by using her favourite fragrance and watch her smile with disbelief when you tell her that you made it yourself. She will be reminded of you every time she washes her hands!
To help you carry out this idea, we’ve found you a soap base that you will need at the base step of making your soap. You can craft clear soaps with this base and then essential oils to it. But first, you have to melt and pour this base into a mould. The pH level of the raw material makes it suitable for most skin types. Handmade soaps are pure and free from any sulphate or parabens. Put a mood-uplifting essence like lavender or jasmine and prepare an ultra-special gift for your mom.

You are an adult now and we are sure that she knows that on weekends you like to enjoy having a few glasses of wine. So don’t be embarrassed while going ahead with our next DIY gift idea because it is one of the simplest ones to make a great Christmas gift.
Take one of the empty wine bottles lying around. Transparent ones are best for any DIY project but since it’s Christmas, the green bottle would suit the occasion. Clean the bottle so that there’s no alcohol, we don’t want any flames. It would be great if you could remove all the labels and turn them into a plain bottle. Dry it out, because we don’t want any electric shocks either! Next is the most important step, get a string of fairy lights and put them in the bottle. Voila, there’s a gift that will fill your mom’s room with a cosy, warm light.

Remind your mom subtly to bake and cook more goodies for you this Christmas by giving her a pair of oven mitts. It can be a struggle to choose a pair online as there are multitudes of them.

The task of making custom oven mitts will become much simpler if you know how to sew. We would suggest you do not wait till the last moment for making this gift.
