Mother’s Day is one of the times of the year that we can take to dedicate solely to thanking our moms for everything they do for us. Sometimes it seems hard to give a gift that measures up to the gifts that they continually give to us. This year, do something for mom that really shows her how grateful you are to have her and how much you love her.

When we were young, hand-made cards featuring a stick figure doodle of us and mom may have been the best gift she could have received from us on Mother’s Day. Why not give her a different kind of hand-made gift this year?

DIY home improvement gifts are a great way to show mom you love her.

Here are a few home improvement gift ideas for any budget:

For a small budget, consider sprucing up her garden or patio. Summer is right around the corner and this is a gift she will be able to enjoy for many months. Consider planting some beautiful flowers or shrubs in the backyard to give some color to the landscape. Add brick pavers for a walk way or to outline the perimeter of the garden. Include outdoor landscape lighting to make the space more usable and enjoyable at night.

For a larger budget, pick a room that mom would enjoy being redone. For example, mom’s powder room is an easy weekend update. Add a fresh coat of paint to brighten the area or create a more relaxing feel, depending on mom’s color choice. Include a new modern or vintage bathroom light fixture to compliment the room’s style. Lastly, consider upgrading the faucet to something that matches the tone of the powder room.

Give mom a gift that she won’t forget this Mother’s Day with a DIY home improvement project. Whatever project you decide, Hortons has the lighting options you need to complete your gift.
