5 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

This Sunday, May 14th, is Mother’s Day. It is a day to celebrate and show appreciation for the mother figures in our lives. What better way to show mom how much you love her, than with a thoughtful gift you can put together yourself? Here are five Mother’s Day gift ideas for some inspiration.

  1. Personalized gift basket

Tune into your crafty side and make mom a gift basket filled with her favorite goodies. You can include chocolates, nail polish, perfume, and other small gifts. You can even choose a theme for your gift, like the garden basket shown below.


  1. Baked Goodies

If your mom has a sweet tooth, this gift is perfect for her. Stop by the grocery store for some baking supplies and take the time to make her favorite cookies, cake, or brownies. Don’t forget to bake with love!


  1. Movie date

If you don’t have time to put together a gift basket or bake some cookies, take mom out on a movie date. Here are your options for movies this weekend.


  1. Photo album

This gift idea can be put together very easily. Print out any photos that you think mom would love, and slip them into a photo album for her. You can even include old photos as well as recent ones.

  1. Handwritten card

It’s so easy to pick up the phone to text or call mom on Mother’s day, but it’s not very often that people send handwritten cards for special occasions. This gift is perfect if you are away from home and won’t get to see mom this Sunday. A little note is sure to be greatly appreciated.
