Mother’s Day is more than just gifts, it’s a day to thank those amazing women in your life for all they’ve done for you. Of course, gifts don’t hurt! After teaching you right & wrong, how to drive, how to talk to boys/girls and overall being there for you in your hardest moments, Moms are the shining bit of light in everyone’s life.
To help you with the Mother’s Day planning, we’ve put together a gift guide full of ideas from $10 to over $100!
For the gift of a relaxing spa experience without springing for the all-day package, just think outside the box. Etsy shop Aubrey Elizabeth Apothecary makes charming soaps fashioned after various treats. Consider the cinnamon bun soaps for $6.25; the sweet scent will add a little luxury to mom’s next hot bath. This Etsy shop also carries macaron and popsicle soaps, lip scrubs and lotions — all for less than $10.
Breakfast in bed is a Mother’s Day go-to for youngsters looking to impress mom with their toast-making and coffee-pouring skills. Now that you’re older, update the classic breakfast in bed with McClure’s Bloody Mary Mix. McClure’s, a Detroit and Brooklyn-based pickle company, makes the mix with its spicy pickle brine and heaps of garlic, hot peppers, dill and fresh cucumber juice. Order her a 32-ounce batch online for just $10.50.
For a useful present with longevity, choose the Bialetti Moka Express Stovetop Espresso Maker for $19.77. The sleek design and ease of use will make this stovetop maker a family favorite for years. Throw the Moka on the stove with some fresh espresso grinds for classic espresso in minutes. Curl up on the couch and catch up with mom as you enjoy your morning boost of caffeine.
Or, give mom something she probably wishes she had all along: a “No” button! The Spoon Sisters‘ big red button emits ten different variations of the word we heard all too much growing up. Grab this silly gift for just $11.95.
Jewelry never fails to impress. Personalize it, and you’ve struck gold — or silver. Uncommon Goods offers a Mother Nestling Birds Necklace in recycled sterling silver. The necklace models silver birds — a “momma bird” and one for each child — perched on a branch. It’s a delicate choice, and ensures your family will always stay close to your mother’s heart. Price varies from $70.00 – $79.00, depending on how many birds.
If mom has a green thumb, or is looking for a new hobby, give her a garden in a basket. Red Envelope offers a Gardener’s Delight Gift Basket, $59.99, filled with handy gardening necessities and a few extra goodies. The useful gardening tote, rake and mini trowels are packed next to English tea cookies, peach tea bags and rosemary hand wash. Pick up a few flower, herb or vegetable seed packets for a buck or two each, and you’ve given your mother a full garden… snack break included.
Invite the whole family for this gift. The Williams Sonoma Wicker Picnic Basket, $349, is jam-packed with picnic necessities. From handblown wineglasses and porcelain plates to a fleece blanket for spreading across the grass, this basket has everything for a delightful spring outing. Invite each relative to bring one dish and enjoy the holiday picnicking together.
Instead of a boring calendar, get your mother something she can hang proudly in her home. A customized family tree is both a beautiful decoration and an insightful look into the family’s past. Custom Family Tree Art fine-tunes this beautiful wall art to your specifications. Choose the number of generations to include and how the tree should be presented. Prices vary according to your choices, but the 20″ X 24″ size starts at $145.
