Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I don’t know about you, but Mother’s Day is the one holiday I feel most unprepared for. Every year it just seems to sneak up on me! I sometimes find myself spending the entire week scrounging the stores for that perfect gift, and in our family, my mom’s birthday also falls the same week as Mother’s Day, so I’m usually searching for two gifts!

Gift shopping can sometimes be overwhelming, especially when you are looking for that special gift that really shows how much someone means to you. I find gift guides helpful because they often give me ideas that I haven’t considered myself, or introduce me to a new product that I haven’t heard of. Today, I’m sharing some of my ideas for gifts for all of our mamas, most of which can easily still be purchased, if you happened to forget that Mother’s Day is almost here!

  1. I Love You Mom and Here’s Why Journal: What better way to celebrate your mama than to tell her how much you love her! I love the idea of this journal, whether you fill it out in advance or complete sections at a time, it will be a great keepsake for her to read for years to come.
  2. OMG My Mother Was Right about Everything Dishtowel: Maybe more times than I’d like to admit, I’ve muttered this statement to myself. This is such a cheeky way to say “I’m sorry”, and mom will appreciate you finally admitting she was right!
  3. Love Grows Here Doormat: If your mom is a plant and succulent lover, this adorable doormat would be the perfect addition to her porch! Plus, the quote is every mama’s mantra for her family.
  4. Because I Love You, Mom Bracelet: Mom can never have enough jewelry! While the gift of jewelry may seem a cliche gift, this sweet little bracelet can be worn by itself or add to other Alex and Ani bangles and reminds Mom of her heroism and fearlessness.
  5. Travel Coffee Mug: For the mama always on the go or the mama that can’t function without cup(s) of coffee, she will more than appreciate a travel coffee mug. Especially this floral one from Kate Spade, it will bring a little brightness to her morning cup of joe.
  6. Essential Oil Diffuser: Give your mom the gift of feeling like she’s at the spa, at home. Gift her an oil diffuser with a couple of oils that promote relaxation to spread the calming aromas around the room. No one deserves a little relaxation more than our moms!
  7. Outdoor Wine Bottle and Glass Holder: If your mama loves the outdoors and her vino, she will love this wine bottle and glasses stakes. It is perfect to take camping or have around the pool or fire.
  8. Stackable Birthstone Ring: My sister and I bought our mom stackable rings with each of our birthstones a few years ago and she loved it! She wears them every day. In addition to buying birthstones for her children, consider buying one for a spouse, sons-in-law, or grandchildren.
  9. Instant Pot: For the busy moms, gift them an Instant Pot! Not only does it save time and energy, but is an easy way to make healthy meals for your family.
  10. Love and Lemons Cookbook: Another timeless, great gift for the mamas that love to cook! I’ve never read this one, but I love how it organizes recipes in alphabetical order, based on ingredient!
  11. Personalized Pillow: How cute is this pillow?! I love the idea of getting this pillow personalized for mom with the names of her children or for grandmas with the names of her grandchildren.

I’d love to hear your ideas about how you are celebrating this weekend. Regardless of if you spend $10 or $100, your mom is sure to appreciate any gift from the heart. That’s why they are the best after all. Happy Mother’s Day!
