Ya’ll know I’m passionate about the story of a home… well, I feel similarly about gift-giving. Practical, beautiful handmade gifts share the story of the maker. The hands that went into creating the gift… the time that the creator dedicated to making the gift… the special way in which the gift was personalized for the recipient. As you’re contemplating what to get mom for Mother’s Day this year, consider putting your own hands to work and creating instead of simply buying.
As a bonus, most of these handmade Mother’s Day gifts are simple enough to involve the kids.
