Mother’s Day is coming up! We think that moms deserve to be celebrated every day, but especially on Mother’s Day each year. 

Mom’s pour out their love for their families each and everyday. Our deepest desires often are about the health and happiness of our children. Celebrate the Mom’s in your life by gifting them something for Mother’s Day that they will love! 

We know that everyone is different and has different ways of feeling loved and appreciated. Make sure when you think of what to give this Mother’s Day that you consider their love language! She may love quality time, and having you plan an epic day out as a family would be the perfect gift. Or maybe she loves to feel pampered, and a gift of a facial is precisely what she would have in mind.

The big point here is that no matter what you give, put some thought into it! Simply picking up a generic card and a box of chocolates (though nice!) isn’t going to make Mom feel known, loved, and appreciated. 

Here are Some Fabulous Ideas of What to Gift the Moms You Love!

A Family Photoshoot

Most Moms love having family photos taken! Often, it’s Mom who is taking the photos, and she would love to be IN the photos with your children. Surprise her this Mother’s Day with a booked Professional Photoshoot! Not only are you giving her a gift she would love, but you are also taking away the hassle of having to plan it. 

If a professional photoshoot is outside your budget, do it yourself! Then, take the time to get the perfect photo of Mom and her kiddos. Pick the same spot to take the photo each year! Someday, she will love getting to look back at her growing kiddos each Mother’s Day. 

A Fill In the Blank Book About Mom

This inexpensive gift might seem slightly silly to some, but I promise you that your Mom is going to love it! This is perfect for kiddos to fill out (Dad can help!). This is the type of gift that your Mom is going to always keep and will one day look back at with tears of joy that her little kiddos handwriting is captured. 

We love this one here

A Fun Day Planned By You

Some Moms love quality time as a family! For Mother’s Day this year, plan a day out and about that they will love. Throw in a coffee stop to their favorite local place and you will have yourself a perfect gift day! The key here is that you plan it for her! That means packing the snacks, getting the diaper bag ready, and taking away the job of “making the magic” on Mother’s Day! 

Mama Clothing

Now, this gift might not be for everyone! But, I think you would be surprised by how much most Mom’s would love a Mama/Mom shirt, sweater, or even coffee mug. These are gifts that you don’t always want to buy yourself, but would love if your partner/child got them for you!

We love this Mama Shirt! Crew neck sweaters are also loved by Mom’s everywhere and this one is a favorite of ours

Plants and Flowers

Mother’s Day here in the Midwest always falls around the same time as people are planning their flowers and gardens. If you have a plant loving Mama in your life, use this time of year to your advantage! Plan a fun trip to the local Nursery and have her pick out some new plants. You could even make it a tradition (if you have the space) to pick up a new “something” each year and plant a Mother’s Day Garden at your home!

If you can’t give the gift of real plants, check out these amazing Lego flowers! Spend the afternoon crafting permanent Lego flowers that Mom can always have on display. 

A Custom Gift

Plan ahead (which makes a Mom feel loved in itself!) and give a mom in your life a custom gift. Print off a photo to frame or get something like a custom Mama mug made. Take the time to think of something that your Mom would love and get it customized just for her! 

A Night or Day Away

Good Mom’s are hardworking and self-sacrificing people. Gift her something for Mother’s Day that is all about her! Maybe she would love a night away at a hotel where she can relax in the hot tub and sleep in as late as she wants! For a theater loving Mama, consider gifting her tickets to an upcoming show that she would love to see. 

Let Her Know You Care

Whatever you do for Mother’s Day this year, the big thing is to simply let her know that you care. Happy Mother’s Day, ‘hood Family!
