What mom really wants for Mother's Day—other than breakfast in bed, and perhaps a nice, long bubble bath—is something special from the little ones who made her a mother. Check out these 10 ideas for homemade gifts for mom that kids of all ages can create.
Fizzy Scented Bath Bombs

If the mama in your life loves showing off her kids' drawings but she's running out of space on the fridge, upload her kiddo's latest creation to Custom Ink to create a work of art she can wear! Depending on the type of T-shirt you pick, the price ranges from $20-$35 (with free 2-week shipping), but with the right care, it'll last longer than the original portrait. Simply choose a shirt color and then click “Start Designing”; once you're in the Design Lab, click the “add art” tab and upload the artwork to add it to the shirt. If mom's not a T-shirt-type, the prints can be placed on hoodies, totes and more.
