Gift Guide: 5 Ideas for the DIY Mom0

Here’s an easy one – so easy that we’re not even going to count in our list of five: 

enter the Fix It Yourself Giveaway and you could slip a Home Depot Gift Card into Mom’s stocking with no more effort than a  short walk to your mailbox.   

But,  if you’re brave enough to venture out, here are few more gifts for Mom that are sure to please. 

1.  The Original Pink Box PB5PL Pliers Set, 5-Piece


Sure Mom wants to build a treehouse —but she wants to look good doing it.  Have her work in style with these pink tools from The Original Pink Box.  The set includes a 6-Inch Needle Nose, a 6-Inch Slip Joint, a 6-Inch Diagonal,  a 7-Inch Linesman, and an 8-Inch Groove Joint.

2.  The Original Pink Box PB2BELT Tool Belt

Of course, Mom will need something snazzy to tote around her tools in. Together, the belt and the tool kit will run you about $50.00.

3.   AeroGarden Classic 7-Pod with Gourmet Herb Seed Kit

If gardening is more your mom’s thing, these indoor gardens grow some pretty impressive veggies.  And they’re very easy to use.   The only downside  I’ve heard is that little water pump breaks down after a while and needs to be replaced.  You know it’s time when it starts making a  horrible grinding sound.

At $99, the AeroGarden may be beyond your budget —but maybe Mom will share some herbs and you can save on your grocery bill. 

4.  KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer

I’m not a Mom, but I have one of these—and I love it.  Extremely versatile, this mixer can be used to make anything from cakes to sausages.  This is a must-have item for any Mom who loves to cook.   And though it costs a bit of cash ($299.95), the KitchenAid mixer is durable enough to become a family heirloom.

5. Lifesmart Rock Solid Luna Spa with Plug & Play Operation


At $2,499.00, this spa offers 12 interchangeable jets, 3 seating positions, and topside controls.  The shell is made of “Rock Solid™,” a material that is  difficult to damage and allows the spa to be used almost immediately; no installation required.

We all know Moms love pampering—and the DIY Mom will have tired muscles after a weekend of fixin’ up the house.   I don’t think you can get much more pampered than soaking in a spa while enjoying a nice beverage.   Maybe she’ll let you join her . . .

Happy Holidays, everyone!
