Are you looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gifts? Now is the right time to start browsing, as stores and online retailers are stocking up with items. There is literally something for all personalities and interests out there. Whether your mom is still stuck in the 60s or loves the most recent technology, we know that there’s something.
Here’s your ultimate list of gifts for Mother’s Day. Take a browse through these ideas to create inspiration for your mom. We have slippers, tea gifts, and so much more.
Get Her a Pair of Suede Slippers
Let’s start with something comfy, homey, and fashionable. Suede slippers are the way to go. They’re durable and warm for the winter. Some offer a rubber sole, meaning walking around on those hardwood floors isn’t going to become a problem.
There are all types of styles out there. Some of the most popular right now are Ugg styled slippers. They pull on like boots and help to keep the ankle and lower leg covered, as well as the foot. There’s just something a little more relaxing about this style.
You could even top it off with a new housecoat or dressing gown. Look for something that matches the color and style of the suede slippers you’ve chosen.
Slippers are definitely gifts that the majority of moms love. They are practical and thoughtful.
Invest in a Cashmere Robe
Okay, so this isn’t going to be the most budget friendly option, but it’s certainly a Mother’s Day gift to consider. You make it clear to your mom that she’s worth the world and there is no price tag on her happiness.
Cashmere robes will work well with some suede slippers. If you must choose between one or the other, we’d suggest opting for the cashmere. It’s soft and delicate, but extremely comfortable at the same time.
If you are still struggling for the money, talk to your siblings. You can offer a luxury gift together, which your mom will love—you worked with each other to find the perfect gift!
Don’t Forget Magic Photo Mugs
Photo mugs are a common gift now. There’s something beautiful about a personalized gift. However, don’t just opt for any photo mug. Get a magic one.
This is one of those mugs that’s pure black until you pour in some type of hot liquid. The photo is then revealed. It will disappear as the hot liquid cools down or the drink disappears.
Not only is this gift personalized, but it’s affordable too. It’s also extremely practical. If your mom is one of those who tends to leave a hot cup until it goes cold, the disappearing photo is a warning sign!
Look for a photo that you know your mom will love. This isn’t about your favorites but hers. If that means a photo of the whole family, go with it. If it’s one that’s just you and her to put a smile on her face (because your brother has already gotten something with just him and her) and work with that.
Get a Necklace with an Initial
Initial necklaces were popular way back in the 16th century. Some of the most popular likenesses of Anne Boleyn include a pearl necklace with a ‘B.’
While your mom isn’t Anne Boleyn, she may still love the idea of an initial necklace. This is especially the case if you’re looking for a special gift for the grandchildren. This works better if there’s just one grandchild at the moment. If you do have more, then you’ll need to get multiple initials on the same chain.
Look out for initial necklaces that also include a jewel. Make sure it matches the birthstone of whoever the initial is for.
Alternatively, you can opt for an initial bracelet. This is more of a charm, meaning extra initials look well placed.
Get a Salt Box for a Kitchen Fan
If your mom is constantly getting something for the kitchen, a salt box could be the perfect gift. This is a wooden container that will store salt, herbs, and spices easily and conveniently. The whole box works with the décor, making your mom smile every time she sees it.
You don’t just have to opt for a wooden box. There are plastic and glass options available if you’d like.
Think about the kitchen size and counter space before getting this gift. It’s excellent for kitchens that are open plan and have plenty of room. You don’t want to get something that will just be placed in a cupboard for the rest of its life.
Consider an L-Shaped Pillow
Those who suffer from terrible sleep and back pain overnight will need something to help them. Think about getting an L-shaped body pillow. The pillow works with the shape of the body for those who sleep on their side, taking the pressure off the back and creating a more relaxing position.
You can get a variety of pillow cases that work around the pillow. This allows your mom always to have something that works with the sheets.
The pillow will have other uses around the house. If your mom is currently pregnant, she’ll love it for supporting the bump while sleeping. It’s also good for propping up when sitting in bed while on bed rest or ill.
Opt for a Fitness Tracker for Gym Buddies
A fitness tracker definitely isn’t a gift for everyone. There will be some mothers who will hate the idea of it. However, your mom may be a gym bunny or currently be focused on creating a healthier and happier lifestyle. A fitness tracker could be right up her street, especially if she’s mentioned the idea of getting one.
There are a variety of types of trackers out there. The Fitbit is one of the most popular right now, despite some negative press last year with the heart rate monitors. There is also the Garmin. All help to monitor steps taken, calories burned, and even the level of fitness worked at. They can be worn around the house, at work, and some even in the shower or swimming pool!
Some of the trackers will also include a sleep tracking element. Your mom can make sure every element of her life is healthy!
Find a Beautiful Tea Cabinet
What about a mom who loves her tea? Maybe she has a black tea that she loves but also enjoys trying some green and herbal teas. The problem is she can’t store them all on the counter top. And when they go in the cupboard, she forgets about some of them!
Well, it’s time to make her life a little easier. Get her a tea cabinet. It’s just a small wooden box with a glass window on the top. The whole idea is that it organizes the tea easily, and you can see in without lifting the lid.
Don’t just get her an empty box! Fill it with some of her favorite teas—new ones!—and some that she may never have tried yet.
Try Out a Tea Infuser
Alongside the tea box, you can also get her a tea infuser. This is highly recommended for moms who love loose tea leaves and enjoy making their own. Look out for stylish infusers, such as those with ceramic tea trays and beautiful designs along the sides.
You’ll want to think about stocking up with some loose tea leaves to go with the infuser. Get a few varieties so she can try something new and make the most of your thoughtful and practical gift.
Don’t Forget the Tea Towel
Continue the kitchen theme for now, if you don’t want to get her tea you can choose a tea towel instead. Don’t just pick up the first one you find in Walmart. You want something that’s quirky, personal, and loving at the same time.
Funny tea towels always work well. You could also get one with a photo on it that your mom loves. Match the photo to the photo mug that you’ve already bought her!
This is usually something fun for the grandkids to buy her. The cheeky sentiments always come off better from them.
Get the Perfect Pair of Shoes
There is no denying that a pair of flats can make the comfiest pieces of footwear. They’re perfect for moms always on their feet and are both stylish and safe. But what do you get your mom who already has a perfect pair?
Find a pair with more color and zing. What about a pair that is ready for a trip to the beach or a vacation in the Bahamas? Take a look around at some of the most popular styles right now. It may not be sunny everywhere yet, but it will be in a month or so.
Buy Her a Yoga Mat
Back to fitness, it’s time for the yoga mat. This is a popular option for those who have tried and love yoga or a similar type of workout. You don’t want to get her something she’s never going to use!
Think about a no-slip mat infused with essential oils. This type of mat will help to create a safer space for your mom’s exercises while helping to soothe the calluses on her feet. She’ll enjoy the scents on a daily basis, making her want to do even more yoga throughout the week. This will become her whole reason for hitting the next class!
Help Create a Spa Experience in the Home
Your mom may say she doesn’t have time for the spa, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to go! She’d love a chance to look after herself, but there’s always some reason not to go. Well, it’s time to help her get that spa experience but in her own home. You can do that with a luxury bath caddy.
Some of the best options have space for all her essential oils, exfoliating products, and even a bottle of wine! She can sit back in the bath, relax and unwind with a good book and a few glasses of vino.
Don’t forget to stock up with a few essential oils for her. Find out about her favorite ones or the types that will work perfectly for her needs and preferences.
Opt for an E-Reader
While books are still popular, eBooks are growing more and more in popularity. A Kindle E-reader is the perfect gift. There are now glare-free, touchscreen options for those who want to read easily whatever time of the day or night.
The benefit of a Kindle is that you can store multiple books on one small device. It’s excellent for moms who like to read on the go, especially those who read fast while traveling.
Don’t forget to look out for a few eBooks that she’ll enjoy. You can get eBook versions of the books she currently has on her bookshelf or others that are similar. Getting something like this shows that you know your mom and what she enjoys.
Get Her a Foot Massager
Moms are on their feet all day. Yours would love to have something that can help her feel relaxed and ease some of the tiredness and pain from a long day. It’s time to get her an electric foot massager.
There are various types available, but none of them cost too much. If they really are over budget, work with your siblings to get your mom the perfect option. Look out for foot massages that have an exfoliating element for the hard skin on the heels and balls of the feet.
Look out for options that will work on every part of the foot. Reflexology is a powerful tool for the overall health.
You can’t go wrong with this list of Mother’s Day gifts. There is something for all interests and needs, whether your mom is a tea lover or needs help getting her sleep patterns back in order. It’s time to think about your mom and the things she would enjoy the most this Mother’s Day.
