Maybe you already got them a similar gift and don’t want to repeat, or you are unsure whether or not they will like what you picked! Luckily there are plenty of wonderful options to get them that will put a smile on their face this Mother’s Day! 

Homemade or Personalized Gifts

If your motherly figure is more of the sentimental type or tends to have an eye for the arts, a homemade or personalized gift may be the way to go! These gifts show that extra thought went into picking out or making something special and unique just for them. There are also tons of options and endless possibilities!

For homemade gifts, there are plenty of ideas on websites like Pinterest or Tumblr, or from your own mind! Here are a list of a few ideas:

For personalized gifts, websites like Etsy are the way to go! Many shops make things like books, embroidered sweatshirts, custom mugs and so much more! They are perfect if you struggle making something on your own but still want them to have something unique. You cannot go wrong with a personalized gift, it is a sure way to show how special they are.


Some ladies enjoy the finer things in life, like jewelry! If you don’t mind spending a pretty penny, you can get them some beautiful necklaces, bracelets, or other pieces of jewelry to show how much they sparkle in your life! Not all lovely jewelry is expensive either, sometimes cheaper jewelry can last just as long and be just as charming. If you aren’t sure where to start, you can ask yourself these questions:

Does she tend to wear necklaces or bracelets?

When she wears jewelry, does she prefer silver or gold?

Would she rather a watch instead?

What’s her birthstone?

Something Simple

Sometimes, life can catch us by surprise and we don’t realize it is Mother’s Day until the day before! That doesn’t mean to just skip out, you can still get them something even if it’s super simple and convenient. 

There are plenty of possible gift ideas to get or do for your motherly figure this Mother’s Day! Show your love and appreciation for them by putting a smile on their face and maybe give them a hug too!
