With Mother’s Day this weekend, why not use our video tutorial by Lucy Bateman to get creative and make the perfect gift box for a special person in your life who has given you unconditional love and support.

Handmade gifts have a personal touch, with the bonus that you get the joy of making something as well as giving something. Great for the wellbeing of the giver and the receiver!

You could also try making the gift to go inside the box. What about these homemade sweets and treats recipes from BBC Food?
