Amazing Gift Ideas for Mom

Mother’s Day is such a special time to show mom you love and appreciate her. It doesn’t have to be a big grand gesture (although those definitely score extra points.). It’s showing mom you appreciate her, want to honor her as the person who does endless amounts of laundry, cooks wonderful meals or is always there for a shoulder to cry on during difficult times. Mothers need thoguhtful gifts year round, not just once a year on Mother’s Day, that’s why I created amazing gift ideas for mom post for you with my top 15 gift ideas. Celebrating moms, step-mother’s, grandmothers is a tradition I will always cherish. Especially since becoming a mom myself.

My family asks me for gift ideas every year. Even my girlfriends ask me what they should ask for. Clearly, this is a personal preference but I’ve put together a list of some pretty amazing gift ideas for mom. From budget-friendly items all the way to fabulous splurge items. Keep this list handy, or pin it to remember gift ideas year round. Mothers need amazing gifts year round like birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and of course Mother’s Day.

Here are my unique amazing gift ideas for mom list because hey, Mothers need amazing gifts year round! Please comment with what’s on your list or what you plan to give mom.

  1. Genuine leather leaf earring. I love the versatility of leather earring. You can get them in all sizes and they practically weigh nothing. {$10}
  2. You can never go wrong with a spa gift basket. I particularly love this one that is infused with lavender essential oils for relaxation. Which all moms need!
  3. “Alexa call my favorite daughter/ son.”  If mom doesn’t already have an Alexa Echo this will be a fun gadget for all ages.
  4. Flowers are always an easy option but go a step further with a beautiful succulent gift box and let mom enjoy all year long. 
  5. The Unwinding of the Miracle is a heartfelt book that will keep moms heart full of love. Books are always a nice gift!
  6. Who doesn’t love a beautiful tray? Whether mom entertains or just likes fun colorful accents to brighten any room, this Lilly Pulitzer palm tray is perfect.
  7. Why not complete the look by adding colorful coordinating pillows. Nothing says spring, summer & sassy classy like Lilly Pulitzer. Lilly Pulitzer Palm Pillow or this cute Pink Lilly Pulitzer Tassel Pillow
  8. Straw handbags are the hottest look right now. So let’s make sure your mom is fashion forward with either of these two styles. Bamboo Handbag or Straw Tote Beach Handbag with fun Tassels
  9. Now that mom has the straw bag covered, let’s make sure she has a good pair of nude sandals. I’m a huge fan of nude shoes. I like to invest in more expensive shoes because I know they’ll last longer than a cheap pair. Here are a few nude sandals any mom will love. Tory Burch Miller Sandal or Steve Madden Greece Sandal
  10. If your mom is a traveler then by all means she must travel in style with this fabulous carry on suitcase. This is actually on my personal wishlist! With a hard case & spinner wheels, this luggage will help mom travel with ease & style.
  11. Now for more of a splurge gift, this is a timeless Gucci GG Marmont Crossbody Bag. I have this bag and let me just say it’s amazing! Traveling, shopping, on the go, night out on the own… this little beauty adds instant style & sophistication to any outfit. Style it up with an outfit for dinner out or style it down with tennis shoes & ball cap for travel days. It holds all the necessities you need!
  12. Here is a fun spin on luxury with up-cycled & Repurposed Louis Vuitton Tassels. (I’m actually giving away the tassel on my instagram in a May so go follow me & enter to win one for yourself or someone special!) 
  13. Make cooking dinners easy for mom with meal delivery. I personally have tried every single one and hands down, prefer Sun Basket to all the others and can’t say enough great things. I love the variety of meal choices, meals per week, fresh & healthy ingredients and the most important thing… easy to prepare in the shortest amount of time.
  14. Finally a gift specific for grandmas. I know as I get older I’m becoming more nostalgic. I never had grandparents past age 10. To see my kiddos get to experience the love from three separate grandparents fills my heart. But let’s be real, kids don’t think about asking grandparents deep, get to know you questions. This book is an excellent way for kiddos to share memories of grandparents and get to know them on a deeper level. Grandma, Tell Me Your Memories.
  15. Last but not least, say I love you with a 3 month subscription of Beautiful Fresh Flowers with free delivery!
