There are hundreds of handmade gift possibilities and each would make a perfect gift for mom. Think about crafts you are comfortable with or your own artistic talents and use those to come up with momís gift. If you are stuck for ideas, here are a few easy homemade gifts to get you started:

  • Homemade candles are a wonderful craft to try that takes very little skill or artistic talent. You can buy candle making kits that allow you to make beautiful container candles that are just as lovely as those bought in a store. Add her favorite scent and make it an unforgettable gift.
  • Create a beautiful photo collage or scrapbook that will bring back the precious memories of a lifetime. Use fun stickers, borders and other scrapbooking supplies to make it special.
  • If your mom has a beautiful yard or garden, a handmade stepping stone is a thoughtful gift that she will be proud to show off. Purchase a kit from your local craft store and make a personalized stone with the names or handprints of her children or grandchildren, or just use a unique design.
  • Bath salts can be extremely expensive, but by making them at home, you can save money and personalize the scents and colors to the specific tastes of your mom. Choose her favorite essential oil and color the salts with her favorite shade. With this gift, mom will think of you every time she uses it.

While sometimes it is easier just to purchase gifts for mom at the mall, nothing will mean as much to her as something made by you. Whether you are a young child or a fully grown adult, nothing brings a smile to your motherís face faster than a handmade gift for mom.
