7 Mother’s Day Gifts That Aren’t Totally Basic

If you’re tired of getting your mom the same Bath & Body Works candle or random mug that says 'World’s Best Mom,' consider this your slightly less conventional gift guide for the most important woman in your life. 

Personalized Love Letter Blanket

Starting off sentimental, this blanket can be customized with a hand-written letter to your mom, and it's sure to be a tear-jerker.

Set of Wine Soaps

If your mom loves wine but you don’t necessarily have the budget to buy a nice bottle, these adorable soaps are the perfect option.

Cheese and Crackers Board

This cute serving board is perfect for entertaining and makes it easy to serve all the charcuterie your mom desires — which I’m sure you’ll enjoy too.

Milk Bar Sampler

For the mom with a sweet tooth, this sampler box from Milk Bar is the perfect option. It comes with a variety of their most popular treats, so your mom gets a little bit of everything.

Anthropologie Apron

If your mom is a total foodie (but you’re still eating ramen), an apron is the perfect choice. Anthropologie has tons of adorable designs and styles, along with matching cookware and other accessories.

Farmacy Skincare Set

If you think your mom deserves a much-needed spa day but you can’t exactly afford to send her there, this gift set from Sephora will definitely do the trick. It includes Farmacy’s bestsellers and will help totally refresh your mom — for a much lower price.

3 Piece Pajama Set

Finally, if your mom loves to lounge, this pajama set from Target is your best bet. Rather than spending $100 on Victoria’s Secret pajamas, these are so comfy and even have a matching eye mask. Bonus points if they come with breakfast in bed!

Hopefully this gave you a few gift ideas for your amazing mom, but even if none of them work out, remember to give your mom a big hug and tell her how much you appreciate her — it'll be her favorite gift yet.
