Mother's Day will be here soon. What will you do for your mother and grandmother? This year, why not make a special, home-made Mother's Day gift for all of the special ladies in your life? I have gathered together a list of 100 gifts you can make for Mother's Day. You will certainly be able to find something on this list that will appeal to your mom and then some.

I list a variety of Mother's Day gifts you can make. There are projects that can be made in as little as 10 minutes and by even the youngest kids. Here are a few of the gift projects you will find when you browse through the complete list:

  • CD Case Brag Book Craft - Learn how to make a cool photo album or brag book using a CD case. This makes a special gift by personalizing it for a special lady for Mother's Day. You can give it to them blank and let them fill the pages or you can fill the pages with pictures, sayings, etc.

  • Bath Salt Recipe - You can easily mix up a batch of these colored bath salts to give to all of the special ladies you know.

  • Candy Kiss Rose Bud Craft - You can make all the ladies on your gift giving list these fun candy Kiss rose buds for a special treat.

  • 95 More Home-Made Mother's Day Gifts

Once you make your gift, you can also make a home-made Mother's Day card or a special Mother's Day gift tag; then, you can use these creative gift wrapping ideas for the perfect finishing touch.

Great ideas! I got my Mom new embroidery scissors for Mother’s Day (her request), but I might try to make her a special card because she’s a very special Mom!
