Sunday is a very special day. Whether you have a mother, mother-in-law, mother-to-be or grandmother in your life, this Sunday is your opportunity to show that that special women in your life just how much you care by showering her with love, appreciation and, of course, special gifts.
If you are one of those people who struggles with finding just the right gift for that special someone in your life, don’t worry, we are here to help! We’ve broken out our gift-giving guide for Mother’s Day into five distinct categories to help you find just the right gift this Mother’s Day.
The One Who Loves Fashion
While you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of diamond earrings or a pair of pearls, we know that sometimes those big-ticket items don’t quite fit in everyone’s budget. A more affordable alternative would be personalized hand stamped jewelry or some modern tassel earrings for a night on the town.
We all know most moms tend to depend a lot on their purses. It’s where they hold the snacks, the medicine, the juice boxes — and really anything else their kids or loved ones may need. But instead of letting her slug around a bulky, not-so-chic bag, consider getting her a fashionable tote or a heavy duty one. Both options help her keep organized, while still looking fashionable.
The One Who Loves To Be Pampered
- Spa day gift certificate
Moms work hard and don’t normally get to enjoy a lot of downtime. Spoil your mom this Mother’s Day with a gift certificate to a day spa. Whether it’s just a quick one-hour massage or a full day of pampering, she’ll return feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and totally refreshed — which she totally deserves.
Another great way to help your mom relax without breaking the bank is by buying her some relaxing aromatherapy candles. She may even appreciate a few that are flavored with her favorite variety of wine.
The One With The Green Thumb
A classic Mother’s Day gift, you can’t really go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Make sure to beat the rush by ordering your flowers ahead of time, or if you’re out of town, have them delivered to her doorstep. If you don’t already know, be sure to find out her favorite flower before you buy.
- Succulent wall art
A new trend is the succulent wall art. You can either make it yourself or purchase one. Either way, it’s a fun, funky way to display succulents that will go beyond the normal bouquets your mom may be used to getting.
- Heirloom seed kit
For those moms who love to grow plants, consider purchasing an heirloom seed kit for herbs, vegetables and anything else your mom may be interested in growing. It’s a great way to either help your mom get started on her own garden or contribute to the one she might already have.
The One With The Kitchen Skills
- Rose gold corkscrew
Nothing quite says “I love you” like a fancy wine opener. Help mom feel like the queen she is with this fancy rose gold corkscrew. Bonus: pair it with one of her favorite bottles of wine and a simple cheese board and take your mom for a sweet afternoon picnic.
- Cooking utensils
Help mom declutter her kitchen with these colorful, stackable mixing bowls. If she loves to cook, she’ll love you even more for helping add some color to her cooking process.
- Cookie cookbook
Who doesn’t love some homemade cookies? Obviously mom’s are always to best, but this cookie cookbook has some recipes that are definitely strong contenders. Pro Tip: These cookies are best if they are served hot from the oven with a cold glass of milk.
The One Who Loves To DIY
- Homemade brunch
Another classic Mother’s Day gift is breakfast in bed. You can either make it yourself or grab something from her favorite brunch place, either way, it’s the thought that counts. Remember to let her sleep in though! She definitely deserves some extra rest on Mother’s Day.
- Personalized card
If you’re on a budget, a personalized card can make the biggest impact on the smallest of budgets. Even if you make it yourself, a card gives you the opportunity to show your mom how much you really care. If you’re really not crafty, here are some ideas to help you get started.
- Cooking/art classes
Check out your local paper for potential classes that your mom can take, or ones you and your mom can take together. Whether it’s a watercolor class, a candle making class or even a popular yoga series, it’s a great opportunity for the two of you to bond and to show your mom how much your time together means to you.
