Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, specifically May 10th, which means that there are plenty of people out there in need of ideas. There are plenty of different routes that a present can take, from the expensive to the sentimental, but no matter what, it should be something meaningful in some way. 

Of course, this year, Mother’s Day will most likely come with its own challenge of social distancing which I’m sure most of us will still be abiding by. This may be the perfect time to do a small drive by and wave from the car or do a small “ding-dong-ditch” by dropping off a present and running! Whichever you choose, it will hold its own special memories later on in life. 

As we prepare for that special day for all Mother’s, I’ve taken the time to put together some ideas concerning possible gifts. Whether you can see your mom or not, there is no doubt that she would love any gift just as much.


Traditional presents, though great for Mother’s Day, can actually be given for other occasions such as birthdays. Though they are great in their own way, they may also be a little overused. Nonetheless, here are some traditional ideas to get you started.

  • Necklace - This can be made all the more special with the pairing of a birthstone pendant
  • Earrings - Diamond, they can be a great addition to an already existing jewelry collection
  • Ring - There are some gorgeous options that also incorporate symbolism such as the names of children or birthstones
  • Picture/Frame - A great personalization piece, it can be a picture of the kids, grandkids, or the entire family


Perfect for those who like to veer off the traditional route, some unique gifts can truly be wonderful and thoughtful. They can best incorporate the nature of the occasion as well as the personal themselves.


This is more for those who are hands on, or who like to get the kids hands on in case of grandkids being present. It can be a great way to involve the whole family, or to exercise a new hobby that you’ve run across. For me, there have been plenty of ideas involving sewing some unique pieces. 

  • Purse or Tote (Check out the Hobbies Section)
  • Scripture Tote (with a book, or Bible, included)
  • Painted Canvas - whether it is painted by you or the grandkids, this is something wonderful to give
  • Quilt - You can make this out of her favorite material, or maybe out of items that hold shared memories.
  • Baked Goods - this could be anything! From her favorite cake with frosting, to small cupcakes you've put together.

Of course, this is not a complete list of all the ideas that are out there. In my search for the perfect idea I came across so many others, but thought these were worthy of mention. Of course, for now, I am not posting here what I’ve got planned – but will follow up with it later!
