When you were younger, you likely wished your mom a Happy Mother's Day with a homemade gift or handcrafted card. Often adorned with painted handprints or paste-covered macaroni, these thoughtful presents let your mom know how much you care. Inspired by this personal approach, we've put together a selection of DIY kits that will send your mom a message from your heart (and hands) this Mother's Day.

Some of these do-it-yourself sets put a crafty spin on Mother's Day staples like bouquets, soaps, and sweets. Others are a bit more unconventional, ranging from a concrete planter that shows off your tough side to a tiny crocheted duckling that reminds her you'll always be her baby.

No matter which gift you go for, you're guaranteed to tug at your mom's heartstrings with these handmade Mother's Day presents.

Make mom's big day even more memorable with these DIY Mother's Day gift ideas.
