Some moms insist they don't want anything for Mother's Day. They'd rather have a home-cooked breakfast than a big restaurant brunch; they want a homemade card in lieu of jewelry; they dream of peaceful morning hours in bed instead of a big family to-do. Take their protests with a grain of salt. You don't need to get us something super-fancy, but nobody is about to turn down a gift.
With this in mind, the fourth installment of HuffPost Parents's 2012 Mother's Day Gift Guide is about affordability. Below, you'll find neat-looking, handmade Etsy items that are easy on the eyes and the wallet. None of them will set you back more than $25, and all are mom-approved.
For further Mother's Day gift inspiration, check out the other sections of our guide -- with gifts for moms who work magic in the kitchen, moms who need a spa break and moms who wear Keds (a.k.a. hipsters).
