Homemade Mother's Day Gifts - Ideas for Presents for Mom You Could Make

Are you in need of ideas and inspiration for homemade Mother's Day gifts?

If you're like many, you want to give your mom or wife, or even grandma, a Mothers' day gift that won't cost you too much money, so perhaps you're thinking along the lines of giving something that's homemade.

The good news is that since many people are making financial cutbacks, there are more great ideas than ever before, so you can give a Mother's day gift that is tasteful and classy and is just what she wanted.

Think about the total cost of the gift you're planning to make

The key to staying thrifty while giving a homemade Mother's day gift is to do the math before you start shopping. A gift that you make on your own, but that costs you upwards of what your budget will allow, is still an expensive gift, so you're going to have to see how much you can really spend before you start shopping.

Finding alternatives to items which might typically be expensive is another really good way to make homemade Mother's Day gifts that will really be beautiful and appreciated. For instance, if you choose to make an herb garden for her, instead of buying pounded copper pots, you might be able to save a ton of money when you choose terra cotta pots that are inexpensive and custom paint them for maximum impact. You can even stencil the names of the herbs on each pot if you like. The soil and seeds for the herbs are inexpensive, or you can buy herb plants for about $3 a piece.

Quirky, cute and inexpensive

Little ones might love to get in on the action when making a homemade picture frame for mom or grandma, and daddy can supervise or add his creative hand to the project and start snapping some really sweet photos of the family that will be cherished for years to come. Paint enough bottle caps as flowers or letters to spell out what the photo you're using will portray, such as "Mommy's girls". If you're not confident about painting the letters, consider painting the caps and using permanent markers for the writing.

For another homemade Mother's Day gift idea, you can do something similar with a photo album - this can be carried around, too. Decorate the front with a special photo and frame it with ribbons and anything else that you think the mommies in your life will love.

The gift of time

Sometimes, the best homemade Mother's day gifts that you can give are your time. Make a day for mom by starting out with breakfast in bed and go from there. Do something special that she loves to do, and consider giving mom a pedicure or manicure. Play in the park, make a "fancy" dinner, and just take the time to give mom your time.

It's not hard to show the mothers in your life how much you love and appreciate them, and it doesn't have to cost you a bundle when you choose the right homemade Mother's day gifts to meet your talents and time.

Have fun!
