5 DIY Mother's Day Gifts Featuring Candy

Got a candy-loving mom in your life?

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time to show appreciation for all the moms out there!

While store-bought gifts are always an option, there's something extra heartfelt about giving a handmade present. Especially when it involves CANDY...

Check out these super easy DIY gift ideas! 

Candy Bouquet

A candy bouquet is a fantastic alternative to traditional flower arrangements. Not only does it look stunning, but it's also entirely edible! To create a candy bouquet, gather an assortment of mom's favorite candies and chocolates. Then, using wooden skewers or floral wire, attach the candies to the ends, arranging them in a bouquet-like fashion. Place the skewers or wire stems into a decorative vase or container filled with floral foam to keep them in place. Finish off the bouquet with some colorful tissue paper or cellophane wrap, and you've got a sweet and personalized gift that mom is sure to love.

Candy Jars

For a simple yet thoughtful gift, consider putting together a candy jar filled with mom's favorite treats. Start by selecting a clear glass jar with a lid – mason jars work great for this purpose.

Next, fill the jar with an assortment of mom's favorite treats, such as chocolates, gummies, or wrapped candies. CLICK HERE to get ideas!

You can arrange the candies in layers for a visually appealing look. To add a personal touch, decorate the jar with ribbons, stickers, or a handwritten note. Not only is this gift easy to put together, but it also makes for a delightful surprise that mom can enjoy whenever her sweet tooth calls.

Candy-Infused Treats

Get creative in the kitchen by incorporating candy into homemade treats that mom will adore.

For example, you can make chocolate-covered strawberries with crushed candy toppings, or bake cookies with candy pieces mixed into the dough. Another idea is to create candy bark by melting chocolate and spreading it onto a baking sheet, then sprinkling it with chopped candies and letting it cool until set.

Package these homemade goodies in a decorative box or tin. It's a thoughtful and delicious gift that mom won't be able to resist!

Candy Spa Basket

Give mom the gift of relaxation with a candy-themed spa basket.

Fill a basket with pampering goodies like scented bath bombs, luxurious body lotion, and aromatic candles. Then, add a touch of sweetness by including candy-scented bath salts or handmade sugar scrubs infused with candy fragrances.

You can also toss in some actual candies for mom to enjoy while she indulges in some much-deserved self-care. Finish off the basket with a pretty bow and a heartfelt note expressing your love and appreciation.

Candy Memory Jar

Create a sentimental gift that mom can cherish for years to come with a candy memory jar!

Start by decorating a glass jar with colorful ribbons, stickers, or paint. Then, fill the jar with small handwritten notes, each containing a fond memory or reason why you love and appreciate mom.

To add a sweet twist, combine the notes with individually wrapped candies. This gift not only celebrates the special bond you share with mom, but also provides her with a heartfelt reminder of your love every time she reaches for a sweet treat. 😊


Whether you choose to make a candy bouquet, fill a jar with treats, whip up some candy-infused goodies, create a spa basket, or assemble a memory jar, the effort and thoughtfulness behind your handmade gift will surely make mom feel cherished and appreciated. 

So gather your favorite candies, unleash your creativity, and get ready to make this Mother's Day one to remember!
