Be it for a birthday, an anniversary, or just to make your mom feel special, you mom deserves the best you can offer her. The perfect present isn’t just about getting her something expensive and over the top – it’s all about getting your mom something thoughtful that she will appreciate.
Anything that shows how much thought you put into it will be a good option, and we have some great suggestions for you. This list contains suggestions for moms who love gardening, ones who are into fashion, and even ones who love to stay in for the night and love a self care day.
At the end of the day though, you know your mom best, so just follow your gut and get her what you think would put the biggest smile on her face.
Mother’s Day bouquets and arrangements are known for how they’re made with the giver and receiver in mind, but what about getting flowers for your mom the rest of the year? Well, a lot of flower shops all over the internet have flowers for all occasions, and you can even get in contact with a flower shop that can help you figure out a bouquet especially for your mom.
You can either choose your mom’s favorite flowers, or match them to her personality. Flowers like roses, lilies, hydrangeas, orchids, and daisies are popular choices, and they can be styled in a variety of different ways, from delicate pink and white arrangements or a pastel bouquet for moms who would like that, to bright explosions that leave an impression.
Some things just never get old no matter how many times you give them as gifts, and jewelry is one of them, especially if your mom loves to accessorize. Get her bracelets, earrings, necklaces, or anything else that you feel like she would love, and accompany it with either a box of her favorite chocolates or some good flowers.
If your mom reads novels or enjoys watching TV, you can get her fandom jewelry and merch, like Harry Potter inspired time turner necklaces, or anything related to her favorite fantasy show. If this isn’t the case, try some personalized or custom jewelry that can fit the budget – rings with your mom’s name carved inside, lockets that she can put photos into, and a lot of other things are available online and on Etsy.
Is your mom a fan of baking? Does she love painting? Is she looking to get into sculpting, or dancing, or makeup? You can try to find out if she wants to start a new hobby too, like knitting or embroidery, and get her supplies to get started creating stuff.
If you can’t get her supplies or don’t know where to start with that, you can look into getting her a course for beginners where she can start learning how to bake or paint or crochet. Whatever was stopping her from getting started on her hobbies before, make sure you’re there to make it easier for her, one makeup palate at a time.
Who doesn’t love to curl up in bed with a good book? If your mom is into books or a reader, there’s nothing she’ll like more than a book subscription that keeps delivering fresh books to her door every month for her to enjoy. There are subscription box services designed specially for book lovers, where people can answer specific questions and have books delivered right to their doorstep that are tailored to their tastes and likes.
You can get your mom a gift card to one of these services for a gift that keeps on giving, or even a gift card to a bookstore if your mom would like that more.
Getting someone decor or adding something nice to their home is always a sweet gesture, and your mom will definitely appreciate something that makes her space look better and feel more like home.
You can get her scented candles that would help her relax after a long day, digital picture frames that she can use to display some of her best memories in the house, and even wall art or a sculpture or vase that you think will look great in your home.
If you want to get her something functional, how about a cute mug, or a useful gadget for the kitchen. This can be a better toaster or coffee maker than the one she currently has, or something that she always wished she could get but never got around to it.
Gift your mom a relazing night in, either by herself or by turning it into a bonding experience for the two of you. Go shopping and get her some face masks and skincare treatments, good wine, chocolates and both your favorite snacks, a subscription to a streaming service with your mom’s favorite shows available on it, and some other things that you think would fit the theme of a relaxing night in with your mom.
You can even go to the spa together, or take her out to dinner before this relaxing night begins.
Plants are great for home decor – having them in the house can improve your mood and the air quality. It can even be a great and sustainable alternative to buying decoration pieces made out of harmful substances, and taking care of household plants can be a great pastime.
If you want to go down this route, it might be a good idea to get your mom a flowering plant or a decorative indoor plant that fits your mom’s personality, the decor, and is something they can easily look after. Things like Aloe Vera can be good options, and succulents are fairly easy to take care of as well.
On the other hand, there are other indoor plants of all sizes that can be used for home decor, like rosemary and the peace lily.
