Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

(Last Updated On: April 23, 2020)

If you’re searching for the best Mother’s Day gift ideas, stop for a minute and consider this:

Can you ever really give your mother a gift that will encompass all she has done for you through the years? It doesn’t matter how old you are, or your mother’s age. It is one of those timeless facts of life…our mothers sacrifice, forgive, encourage, discipline, teach, provide, and love us as children forever. We’re never too old for our mom’s wisdom.

So, when Mother’s Day rolls around each year, we think about what we can give them and/or do for them that will make the day special. I always ponder on that for my mom; I’m so fortunate that she’s still with me.

As a mom myself, I can truly say that all I need is for my boys to tell me that they love me. I’m good with that.

But it’s also a thoughtful gesture (and some moms absolutely expect it!) to give your mom a gift of appreciation. And, it’s not just a day to give your mom something special. Husbands and partners may give the love of their life a gift on Mother’s Day. Moms sometimes give their daughters who are in ‘the club’ special recognition, and I’m sure there are other relationships that merit a nod to ‘mom’ on this holiday.

So for you gift-giving seekers, I’ve found some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas that a mom of just about any age would enjoy receiving.

Most women love fragrance, so giving your mom (or loved one) the gift of choosing a new and different scent could be the perfect choice. I have been searching for a new signature fragrance, as my perfume choice for 40 years has been discontinued.

I chose to search for my new fragrance from Phlur, a rising company that creates scents in a responsible way, protecting our environment as well as ourselves. It is so simple and easy to use, as everything is done online. Yes, online.  They offer a variety of gift ideas, so be sure to check these out!

Best Flowering Tea Set & Blooming Tea

Does your special person enjoy a cup of tea? I have found the most beautiful tea sets that include unique flowering tea buds. It is the coolest thing! Offered by TeaBloom, there are a variety of shapes and styles of lovely glass teapots, and a unique offering of blooming teas.

Best Flowering Tea Set

I had a wonderful time with my mom when we watched a tea flower bloom into a soft, fragrant tea. Then, we sat on the porch and enjoyed some conversation and sipped on our tea. That’s what making memories are all about, my friends.

Blooming, or flowering, teas are healthy for you, too. Check out these lovely teapot sets and flowering teas. I’m going to guess that most of your moms don’t have one of these!

A Lovely Memento for Mom

A beautiful red rose carved into a heart-shaped acrylic paperweight that is a tad less than 3″ in size makes such a personal and memorable gift for Mother’s Day. I love the options for personalizing this gift – loved one’s name, birth date (or other memorable date), birth stone, disc color, and a personalized message that will be presented along with the paperweight. Lovely.

Stay Healthy & Fit!

Looking for something a bit more practical? I love my Fitbit ALTA fitness tracker! I think any woman, doesn’t matter the age, wouldn’t mind wearing this around her wrist. The photo here shows me wearing my tracker with a rose gold flexible band, so I can adjust to wear it like a watch or a bracelet.

The Fitbit ALTA tracks steps, workouts, menus, sleep patterns, and can tie into your phone so you’ll always know when a text message is received. It’s pretty cool. Check it out.

Comfy Lounging PJ’s that Keep You Cool, too

  • Love the message in a bottle, Candi but you are right she you say Mother’s don’t really want gifts just to hear that they are loved and to spend time with their children and grandchildren.
