Mother’s day is a day we set aside to celebrate the moms in our lives and let them know we appreciate them. As my own mother ages, I find I get more nostalgic about mother’s day, and it will be here before we know it!  When I first became a mom it shed new light on the responsibilities a mother unwittingly takes on. Every year I struggle to decide what mother’s day gift will bring a bit of joy for my mom. So I wanted to help us all out and post some mothers day gift ideas that are great for all the special woman in our lives.

Mother’s Day gifts show our thoughtfulness

Mother’s Day is the time to really show your mom how much you appreciate all that she does for you. But really, how can you adequately say “thank you” to the woman who gave you the gift of life? A mother’s day gift seems inadequate, but with a little thought, you can bring a smile to her face.

The best gifts say you “get her”

The best gifts fall into one of two categories. They either say “I’ve been listening”, and show that you have picked up on small musings or complaints, or they pick up on an unspoken want or need that show that you know her best. Perhaps she struggles with a household item and you can find the perfect replacement. Maybe she’s really always wanted to take a watercolour painting class – sign her up! Or she would really appreciate a day at a spa even though she doesn’t really pamper herself much.

Our gift ideas

This list is full of unique gifts: for the one who looks to you to share what’s new in beauty, to the one who never gets time to pamper herself, and the one who deserves to look stylish and feel lovely even when she is relaxing. Just for herself!

Browse through our Mother’s Day gift ideas. You’re sure to find a small token to surprise and delight her on her special day to outlast the flowers (which we all know she’ll love).

Things to wear

This first group is things to wear, for relaxing (we’re not really dressing up just yet), or to make her feel special.

Things to pamper her

From the latest makeup products you’ve discovered to a fresh shade of lipstick she’ll appreciate knowing you care.

… or some of these lovely bath and body products. Warning, it may be hard to choose.

To simplify and inspire her in the kitchen

Give her the indulgence of breakfast in bed if that’s her thing. Homemade waffles are my favourite, crispy on the outside, pillow-soft yumminess on the inside (especially if they are blueberry) – nothing beats them! … or maybe she would love all the flavour but none of the calories form an air-fryer. You know her best!

If you haven’t discovered the yumminess of an outdoor pizza oven you are in for a treat! My neighbor has one and we have had a few pandemic friendly gatherings with hot pizza right out of the oven and it is divine! The best part? You can cook a rib-eye in there too. It isn’t just for pizzas! This would definitely be my pick!

No matter your budget, mom will love the effort you put in. She’s just like that 😉 Whatever you give her will be appreciated, especially since it was chosen with care.

I hope this gift guide helps you find something for any special moms in your life. If you are still stuck, as always, we think the gift of a design consultation is always one she will appreciate. It is her chance to explore her dreams for her home and get some answers from a pro! (click to order).
