While Mother’s Day comes once a year, the mothers in our lives are truly essential 365 days. There are just certain things a mom does that can not be replaced.
Whether you need a gift for your own special mother, a mother-in-law, or a “like a mom” figure, these are some fantastic ideas that will show your appreciation for all that she does!
We would like to thank all of the amazing companies for working with us to share these gift ideas with you. We were so lucky to be gifted with each of these gifts to share with you today! Some of these links may contain affiliate links.
Edible Gifts for Mom
I have to admit, while all of those adorable handmade pottery tins and beautifully colored pink elephants are fantastic, we love food too! Moms love to wake up to breakfast they don’t have to cook. This is another reason that giving mom something she can truly enjoy is as easy as Yum, 2, 3!
If you know a mom who loves ice cream (that’s all of us, right?) this is the winner right here! The convenience of being able to have the perfect gift shipped is unmatched. You can even personalize pints! They have plenty of bundles to choose from, too! I was lucky enough to try out the Mother’s Day Premium collection and I have to tell you, these are some of the best ice creams I have ever had!
My family and I got to try the incredible pretzels from Eastern Standard Provisions Co and I have got to tell you, these were incredible. We are pretzel snobs around here, they are one of our favorite snacks. These were fresh, the perfect amount of crisp to softness once cooked, and came in so many cool shapes! If mom doesn’t love these, more for you (but we really doubt that happens)!
What do you get for the mom who has everything? Well wine, of course! This is the perfect gift for that hardworking mom who deserves to take a moment to herself! Gift her with one of these beautifully bottled, delicious wines and maybe throw some chocolates in for good measure!
Mother’s Day Self Care Gifts
Self care is incredibly important for all of us but even more so for mom. The job of a mom hardly has a “clock out” option, not to mention she is a chef, taxi driver, maid, playmate, and everything in between!
Everyone brushes their teeth so this is a gift that certainly won’t go unused. I was incredibly impressed with the quality and gorgeous aesthetic of this set! It has 3 modes: whitening, sensitive, and massage. You can grab the Mother’s Day bundle too that includes floss and whitening strips!
From bath buds to Pomegranate massage oil and Rose facial toner, this bundle is everything luxe! Upon opening the bundle you’ll see how beautifully it is packaged and how adorable each item is. I can’t say enough about the convenience of having the little spoons attached to the bottles for the detox minerals and bath buds! Lauryn’s Garden is a small, woman-run company which is another fantastic reason to try them out!
Not just any electric toothbrush, this one is from a brand we all know and love. The Oral-B 7500 has 5 modes: daily clean, gum care, sensitive, whitening, and pro-clean. It also has a built-in timer to let mom know when to switch to a different section of the mouth! The best part? Dentists love Oral-B!
Let mom pamper herself while ensuring she keeps those locks healthy and gorgeous. Gift her any one of the many sets from Number 4 Hair. You won’t be disappointed by anything you choose! The pamper in place set and stay at home style are both wonderful options!
Know what else mom loves? Feeling beautiful! There is something about long, full eyelashes that light up an entire face, trust us. The Mascara gift sets from My Little Mascara Club are the fantastic gift for any mom you love. Choose from a variety of gift sets or even sign mom up for her own Mascara membership!
Give mom a throwback to before she was mom with these vintage ideas! I remember being a preteen at the skating rink with my rollerball lip gloss and these are a total throwback to those days! I also happen to love the slider tin lip balms and I have got to tell you guys, they smell INCREDIBLE. Mom is going to love this one!
You may have heard about Monat from your favorite hairstylist or a friend who loves her results from it. Have you heard that they have a skincare line too!? I had no idea! Grab mom a hair and skin bundle for some self-pampering this mother’s day!
Gifts for the Modern Mom
This is the perfect gift for the mom that always has her phone out snapping pics! Whether she is taking selfies for Instagram or capturing family memories, this grip is perfect! It also doubles as a super-effective stand for watching videos or browsing the web.
It took us a bit to get the hang of this but once we did, it is so addicting!! My 8-year-old and I both had a blast trying to figure out these brain-busting puzzles. For the mom who likes to fiddle with things, she will love this idea!
Give mom the peace of mind to know her home is secure whether she is there or not. Unlock your doors with fingerprint, digital pin, or with your phone via bluetooth or wifi from anywhere! Know a mom who is always forgetting her keys? This is a fantastic gift!
Mother’s Day is for Relaxing
With all the excitement of finding mom the perfect gift, don’t forget what she wants more than anything else!
She wants an empty sink, a clean living room (here are tips for decluttering), a breakfast she didn’t cook (try this delicious french toast bake), and for her family to take the day to relax with her!
Wishing you and yours the happiest Mother’s Day!
