Still wondering what to give for Mother's Day this year? You might be too old to hand out paper-and-crayon IOU coupons for dinners and shoulder rubs, but a homemade, heartfelt gift is always special — and budget-friendly as well. How about a jar of bright lemon curd, some pretty strawberry-granola bark or a framed family recipe card? Here are instructions for making these gifts for Mom, as well as many more.
Strawberry-Almond Granola Bark
If you have a bit of time to spend in the kitchen, you can whip up a batch of cookies, roast some sweet and savory cashews, or mix up a tea blend tweaked to the recipient's tastes. And if she likes to cook, give her a jar of homemade flavored salt or a spoon butter that will keep her favorite wooden tools protected and good-looking for many more Mother's Days to come.
