This one is probably one of the easiest DIY crafts that you can try at home if you’re not particularly a fan of art and craft. Grab your mom’s existing mug, or a new one if you have it with you, and mention the message or doodle that reflects the love you have for her.
8. Don’t Let Her Do Any Chores The Entire Day
