While moms deserve to be honored all year round, Mother’s Day is one of the best times to show her just how much she is loved and appreciated.
Want to give her something new or unique this year? Here’s a mix of thoughtful, sentimental and practical gift ideas.
Get Mom a different kind of statement piece—a dainty necklace that’s morse-coded with her name or initials, a word, a phrase, or your personalized message.
Coatt uses slender fourteen-karat gold or gold-fill “dots” and “dashes” strung on a colored, twisted silk cord. This pairing makes for a feminine yet sleek piece that can delicately accent all kinds of outfits.
Take your card-giving tradition up a notch and tell your mom how much you love and appreciate her with this fill-in-the-blanks journal. Completing each page will be worth the time, as it’s sure to make her smile and perhaps even bring her to tears.
It’s an excellent keepsake too. This little gem has a hardcover and comes with a removable plastic jacket. So yes, it will hold up for years, no matter how many times your mother flips through its pages.
Surprise her with a personalized bamboo cutting board. This can be engraved with your choice of text, and it could be something as simple as a name or as intricate as a recipe.
Say Mom has a stack of typewritten recipe cards or likes to scribble recipes in a small notebook. All you need to do is send a scanned copy of the recipe to 3D Carving, and this will be laser engraved as is on the cutting board.
Starts at $27
If Mom is a huge movie buff or loves binge-watching TV shows, get her a Netflix gift card. It’s practical and surely won’t go to waste. And it’s perfect for squeezing some extra “me” time or for capping off a long, stressful day. Plus, she can watch on any internet-connected device and on her own terms.
Netflix gift cards can be found in several retail locations. You can also purchase them online via Amazon.com, Target.com, Walmart.com and PayPal.com.
Starts at $30
Remind Mom that she deserves to be pampered. She may not get to spend the day at the spa, but she can treat herself to a luxurious and soothing “treatment” with this handmade, all-natural bath bomb. Once dropped in a tub of warm water, it releases a lovely and delicate floral scent.
The bonus: A ring is included! The ring is revealed after the bath bomb fizzes out. It is available in sterling silver, rose gold and gold plated versions, with sizes between 5 and 10.
If Mom is a conscientious shopper, pick out a scarf from fashionABLE’s collection on her behalf. The brand supports the Ethiopian women who create the scarfs by providing them not only salary and employee benefits but also support in terms of education and family care.
The quality happens to be great too, so you’re essentially be giving her a stylish scarf that she can count on for years.
Compile her Instagram photos in a gorgeous and understated softcover book from Artifact Uprising. The page templates are designed specifically for square photos, so you can put the whole thing together quick and easy. Plus, the print quality is superb.
The Instagram-friendly photo book is available in 5.5” x 5.5” and 8.5” x 8.5”sizes, with a minimum of 30 and 40 pages respectively.
Starts at $18
