5 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the Moms in Your Life

May 8th is right around the corner; you need to start brainstorming some Mother’s Day Gift ideas for all the moms in your life. You want your gift to stand out and make the moms in your life feel appreciated and loved. We’ve gathered up some sentimental gift ideas that will make her feel special. (And help you secure your spot as the “favorite.”)

For the Foodie… Cook Her a Meal

Mother’s Day is the most popular day for dining out — an estimated 34% of all adults choose to celebrate at a restaurant.1

Making a meal at home can be more meaningful. It takes more time and effort to plan a family brunch at home than it does to call in a reservation. Gather the kids, plan a menu for the big day, invite the family over, and get cooking! With everyone gathering in the kitchen, you’re sure to make a few memories.

Have everyone give a toast to the woman of the hour, pass around pictures, and go that extra mile to make the whole event a memorable Mother’s Day Gift.

For the Nature Lover… Gift Her a Plant

If the mother in your life enjoys gardening or boasts an impressive collection of houseplants, then the gift of something green may be right up her alley. With the right amount of TLC, some houseplants have the potential to live for years (even decades).

Some houseplants that require little light include:

  • Bamboo
  • Pothos
  • Spider plant
  • Philodendron
  • Fittonia
  • Christmas cactus

For the Adventurer… Book an Experience

If a mom in your life enjoys the outdoors, this may be the perfect time to gift her something you can do together. Spending time together is something moms cherish, and the gift of making memories together can be priceless.

Some experiences you could plan include:

  • Mapping out a day trip to visit some of her favorite spots
  • Purchasing admittance to a series of classes (cooking, dancing, pottery, painting, etc.)
  • Finding tickets to see her favorite musician, comedian, or play

For the New Mom… Preserve Precious Memories

If there’s a new mom in your life, consider gifting them something to help preserve the memories of this time. Turn their child’s drawing into a framed piece of art or hire a photographer to take family photos. Those memories will be treasured forever.

For the Busy Mom… Spoil Her With Subscriptions

If the mom in your life is always on the go, consider something that’ll make her life a little easier. Maybe she’d enjoy a premium subscription to a music streaming service for her long commute, or perhaps a meal kit delivery service could make weeknight dinners less of a hassle. From wine, cheese, hot sauces, or tea of the month kits, there is no shortage of subscription services to gift your favorite busy mom.

Mother’s Day is an important celebration for every woman you consider to be a mother figure in your life. While they may certainly appreciate a lavish or expensive Mother’s Day gifts, there are always a few simple, sentimental things you can do to show how much you appreciate them and make them feel extra special.
