Gifts for Mom

Moms are tough to shop for. Or at least my mom is. She claims she doesn't want or need anything and leaves it up to me to get creative. Luckily, creativity is my strong suit. But that's beside the point. Even if your mom isn't quite as reserved as mine when stating what she wants for any given holiday, I have a feeling she isn't handing you a wish list and making the whole process super easy.

I can't spill what I'm giving my mom for Mother's Day, (she's my most devoted reader) but I am so curious to hear what you're giving your mom as a token of appreciation this Sunday. These are some of the ideas that come to mind when I think of Mother's Day gifts.

1. Baubles. Give her a fun piece of jewelry that she wouldn't buy for herself.

2. Spa activities. A manicure, pedicure, massage, or facial will do just fine. Or even better, go to the spa with her and make a day out of it.

3. Tickets to a favorite play or concert. Sometimes the nicest gifts aren't objects, but experiences.

4. A gift card (make sure it's to her favorite store!). I know, I know, gift cards can be incredibly impersonal. But I would be lying to you if I said I'm not thrilled when I get a gift card to my favorite store (ahem ahem, J. Crew).

5. Flowers. But make sure your mom is someone who likes flowers. After all, some people don't appreciate them quite as much as others.

6. Treat her to brunch or dinner - or cook a delicious meal yourself!

What are you giving your mom, or any other moms in your life, for Mother's Day?

  1. These are all such great ideas! I love getting my mom a random accessory she wouldn't buy otherwise, but this year flowers might have to do. She loves those too :) Moms are difficult to shop for!
