Mother’s Day is right around the corner, here are some gifts your mom is sure to love!

Send Her Flowers

For those of us not home for Mother’s Day, sending flowers can be a great way to show your love. You can send her favorite color or type of flowers

Spa Basket

A luxurious spa basket is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. Skin and hair care products, makeup, face masks, bath bombs and loofahs are some fun things you can put in the basket. You can find all of these products at Bath & Body Works, Marshall’s, Homegoods or even Target!

Spa Day Gift Certificate

Instead of creating an at-home spa basket, buy a gift certificate to your mom’s favorite spa. This is a relaxing gift she can enjoy anytime she wishes. You can give her a gift certificate for a massage, manicure and pedicure, facial, or other another special spa treatment you know she’ll love!


Candles make a wonderful gift and come in many scents that will fit perfectly with your mom’s unique personality. Some springtime scents may include honey dew melon, ocean breeze, lavender, and cucumber mint. Bath & Body Works is a very popular place to purchase candles, but Marshall’s and Homegoods has been stepping up their candle game lately as well! 

Robe & Slippers

An ultra soft robe with matching slippers is a gift she can use again and again and will love every time she slips it on. This set is a great classic choice for mom!

Brunch Date

Why not treat her to a fancy brunch at her favorite restaurant? No better way to give a gift while also spending time together.

Essential Oil Diffuser

If you mom doesn’t prefer candles but you still want to gift her something that can brighten up her senses try and essential oil diffuser. If you are feeling generous add in a gift set of her favorite essential oil smells: lavender, lemon, eucalyptus, and orange are perfect smells for spring. Target has great aromatherapy options, as well as this one from Amazon


A simple pair of studs, beautiful dangling earrings or even a statement necklace makes a perfect gift. You know what your mom likes best!

Picture Frame

A framed picture with you and your mom, one with your whole family is a gift she will cherish forever!

Himalyan Salt Lamp

This pink lamp is the perfect gift to help her relax after a long, busy day. Salt lamps come in my different sizes and styles, here’s one from Target that she would love!

Fun Baking Molds

Perfect for a mom who loves to cook and bake. There are lots of different shapes and sizes available for every aspect of baking! Who knows if your lucky, maybe she’ll make you something :) Target offers a wide range of baking accessories and molds!

Give your mom her favorite recipe printed on a wooden cutting board, she will cherish this for years to come! Here’s one on Etsy that woudl be perfect!

Cooking Class

If your mom doesn’t cook but would like to learn a cooking class is a great idea!

Cheese & Drink Markers

A must for a mom who loves hosting dinner parties. Mixing up cheese and drinks will no longer be a problem!

Another exciting gift for a mom who loves a good dinner party or just a night with friends!

Beach Bag with Summer Essentials

Who doesn’t love a cute beach tote? And of course you can include all the essentials for summer: a fun printed towel, flip flops and sunglasses.

Gardening Gloves and a Watering Can

If your mom loves to garden there’s no better gift than some gardening tools and a cute watering can. Target has some of the cutest gardening supplies, perfect for any mom!

Succulents – Real or Fake!

Even if she isn’t a gardener, succulents bring life to any room and are fairly easy to take care of. For a selection of fake succulents I would look to either Target, Marshall’s or Homegoods!

Tea Pot & Tea Cups

For a mom who loves tea, beautiful teapots, teacups, creamers and sugar caddies are the way to go. Anthropolgie, has one of the cutest one’s I’ve seen yet!
