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. Using self-care as inspiration, you can craft a great gift that will fit perfectly with your mom's lifestyle. Maybe you'll even convince her to take more time for herself because she deserves it.

Other kits 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. You can add an extra personal touch to these projects by using your mom's favorite colors, making her want to incorporate the piece into her home decor as a special reminder. Even if you're short on time, many of these picks make for great last-minute gifts.

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

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