45 Handmade Christmas Presents for Mom - Gifts Anyone Can Make!

Do you run into the same problem I do every year regarding what gift to give your mom? I'm stuck in an interesting spot because my mom's love language is gifts (mine, too!) but she also rarely needs anything. So even when you can't figure out what Mom needs or wants, handmade gifts make a great option because moms love things their kids made just for them.
