Gifts for Moms
Mom is awesome and sometimes Mom deserves a gift, even if it’s not her birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or Mother’s Day that applauds her awesomeness. Sometimes you just want to get her something. Well, if you don’t want to check out the rest of our gift guides or consult a section about her favorite hobby, read on to learn about mom-specific gifts you can get her to say, “Thanks for everything.”
Remind Her of Her Family
Nothing is more personal than a gift that reminds us of those that matter most in life. When life starts to get a bit rough around the edges, it’s the people closest to our hearts that help smooth things out.
A family tree will show her that you care where you come from, or simply remind her of those relatives of whom she’d rather not think.
Let her show off her family with a locket. Make sure you can find a tiny headshot, though. Yes, because seeing you everyday isn’t already enough! You’ll literally be the extra weight around her neck.
Frame your family for her desk, her bedroom, or anywhere else she needs inspiration. Instead of a photo, you may also want to put a piece of writing or an original drawing inside.
Make a collage to preserve a whole slew of memories in one place. Will it be through the years or a single trip?
Buy her a plaque to declare that she’s the best mom you know. Wouldn’t it be great if they actually came in more numbers. As a joke of course
Get Mom a little snuggle in the form of a teddy bear. This one won’t even say, “Mo-om! Get OFF of me!”
Give Mom coupons promising her that you’ll fulfill whatever favor she asks. These are the most valuable coupons she’ll have.
Not a Mom yet?
Get her a guide to pregnancy before you get her all she needs for babies and toddlers. If she wants some mothering advice in print form, get her a book on parenting. You can find a book for any sub-topic you need.
Movies are a great way to bond with Mom. Stepmom, Mermaids, and Freaky Friday are great. Avoid Carrie, Psycho, and Bambi.
Give Her a Rest
Mom rarely takes a break. Being a mom is a full-time gig, and in many instances we tend to overlook all she does for us. Show Mom you care and appreciate all she does with these simple gift ideas.
Mom must be on her feet a lot. Get her some comfy slippers.
Transform that old dull outfit into something new and exciting. A flash of color always helps. Dress Mom’s fashion up with a chic silk scarf.
Make her dresser drawer smell nice and complement it with some candles.
Pamper Mom with a manicure/pedicure set. A great bonding activity for moms and daughters. You’ll enjoy quality time together while making your nails look absolutely fabulous.
Maybe she wants a stylish new purse. I hope it holds keys, snacks, tissues, paper, lotion, money, gum, breath mints (you never know when you might eat some garlic!), band-aids..
If things are getting a little out of hand, get her some organizational equipment.
A coffee gift basket will keep her up and going for hours.
The antithesis of coffee, a tranquility fountain will calm her down when she needs. Perfect for those times you don’t make curfew or get a speeding ticket.
Learn about flowers, decorate a vase, and make her a bouquet.
A bath and body gift basket will keep her pampering herself for months.
