If you feel like Mother’s Day snuck up on you this year, it’s for good reason. The annual holiday — which is always on the second Sunday of May — is on the earliest possible day it could be in 2016!

While this (sort of) gives you an excuse for running a little behind on your Mother’s Day gift, you still have to get it together by Sunday. Luckily, you have plenty of time to create these DIY projects from Courtney Lundquist, which are all not only affordable, but also quick and easy to make.

In this video, Lundquist demonstrates how to make a personalized coffee cup using oil-based Sharpies, aromatic bath sacs using lavender and tea bags, and a classic favor coupon book with gift tags.

All of these gifts can be given on their own, or all together for a substantial gift basket. Plus, even the least-seasoned crafter can handle these easy projects.

If your mom is more of a sweet tooth, you can also make these flower cupcakes to brighten her day. If you want to give your mom a pretty flower boutique — but aren’t keen on spending money on an overpriced arrangement — try these DIY citrus centerpieces (and maybe even make one for yourself while you’re at it!).

Whatever you give your mom, get to it! Mother’s Day is right around the corner.

Please SHARE these fun Mother’s Day gift ideas with everyone else feeling the Mother’s Day crunch time!
