Handmade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is coming up on May 11th, and many people are strapped for cash. So why not focus on meaning over money by making something for your mom, stepmom, or motherly figure? I compiled a list of links from blogs and magazine articles that show you how to make unique and thoughtful gifts. Whether you’re the next Michelangelo or your last “masterpiece” was a finger painting in kindergarten, there’s something here for you. When it comes to Mother’s Day, the old saying “It’s the thought that counts” definitely applies. So check these out, invite your friends or siblings to get in on the fun, and get to it!
