Homemade Gifts for Mom

Many times, the best gifts are the homemade kind! One of the reasons we love Mother's Day here at Goodwill (besides celebrating Mom), is that you can find the supplies for your Mother's Day gift, or even the full gift itself right on our store shelves! Each Goodwill Store & Donation Center has a unique selection of items that can be repurposed into something else. And, by donating, you allow more than one person to cherish a single item. Below are just a few of the many gifts you can create for Mom with items that could easily be found at Goodwill!
