These are perfect for you if 1) you're on tipid mode or don't have any money to spare, 2) you're not the biggest fan of DIY, but are willing to put some effort in your Mom's Day present, and 3) you don't like being cheesy on occasions like this, but want to show your love nonetheless. Below are eight non-cheesy DIY Mother's Day gift ideas we found around the great WWW.

If your definition of a special gift is something you've put effort into making, one of a kind, useful, and just takes 10 minutes to make, these gems are your best bets!  

  1. Fluffy Slides

Make your mom's footwear a little ~*extra*~ by converting it into fluffy sides! She'll appreciate it for sure.
