Handmade Gift Roundup: Make Something for Mom!

In addition to serving up some of the brunch ideas here, there's still time to make a handmade gift (or two!) for Mother's Day. Choose something that suits her taste, something she would use and enjoy - she'll appreciate the effort, and you'll have had a little fun in the process!

Handmade Notecards: These come together more quickly than you might think, and the variations are endless. The craft stores have beautiful papers available, so you're sure to find something in exactly Mom's style.

Homemade Body Scrub: Just a few ingredients make for a spa-like indulgence. You can customize the scrub using Mom's favorite herbs and citrus. Don't be afraid to make this in advance - this scrub becomes even more aromatic over time.

Handstitched Coasters: What does Mom do when she needs to put down her drink? She finds a coaster, of course! Use the instructions from the holiday coasters to create these in any theme she would like, and make several so she can use them throughout the house.

Herb and Spice Mixes/Seasoned Salt: If Mom likes to cook and bake, a few of these mixes might be just the gift for her. Tuck them into a basket with some other goodies - and don't forget to include her favorite bottle of wine :-)
