Mother’s Day used to be so easy, didn’t it? When we were little, we were always just a macaroni frame or cement handprint away from making our moms beam for hours!
These days though, our moms probably won’t be quite so happy with an arts and crafts project (unless, of course, you’re an expert DIYer). And why shouldn’t our mamas get something nice? They raised us and deserve all the accolades they can get (even if they prefer those accolades in the form of a spa day or pretty earrings)!
If you’re having a hard time figuring out what to get your mom for Mother’s Day next weekend, I’ve handpicked some beautiful gifts to help you out.
For the Style-Loving Mom
If your mom loves looking stylish, pick her out something indulgent that she may not think to buy for herself: a beautiful silk scarf, a cozy cashmere sweater, or an interesting piece of jewelry, for example. Not quite sure what to get? You can’t go wrong with a classic tote or fun accessories like a coin purse or glasses case. Bonus points for gifting your item in beautiful packaging (she’ll appreciate the extra effort!).
For the Entertaining Mom
Is throwing a dinner party or backyard BBQ is your mom’s idea of a perfect evening? Buy her some fun and sophisticated tabletop and party accessories—think pretty, handcrafted ceramic serving dishes (that you can buy from local artisans or on Etsy), a beautiful vase, or spring-like table linens that match her home or patio.
For the Mom Who Loves to Travel
If your mom’s passport has more stamps in it than a post office, get her something beautiful to take with her on her next big adventure—think a handmade leather passport cover, pretty luggage tags, or a vintage train case.
For the Art Loving Mom
Fancy up your mom’s walls with a beautiful new paining or drawing. Etsy is a wonderful place to find small, up-and-coming artists with unique prints, abstract paintings, and even sculptural ceramic pieces—that won’t break the bank. And if you’re not sure what she’ll love, try a gift card from Artsicle!
For the Mom Who Doesn’t Want Anything
Of course, there are always those moms who insist that you shouldn’t get them anything for Mother’s Day. But while you don’t want to give her things she doesn’t want, you shouldn’t let the day go by unnoticed, either. So, find a unique card and send with a thoughtful message inside—and maybe a gift card for a massage or her favorite restaurant.
