Mom’s are not always the easiest people to buy for. Okay, at least I’m not. I’m a little finicky about my clothes, I don’t wear much jewelry, and I don’t love house decorations. So I created this Mother’s Day gift guide to hopefully give some more ideas than the usual earrings that I bought my mom for about a decade when I figured out maybe that wasn’t always the best gift.
For The Crafter
I’m not the craftiest person but if you were to get me a “crafty” gift I’d be super enthusiastic to get a cricuit machine. I’ve pinned hundred of things I could make with this amazing cutting machine. I have so many things I would put on my coffee mugs if I was to make them myself and maybe the mom you are gifting to has a few projects in mind too.
For the Wine Lover
Grab your wine loving mom a fun mug that professes her love for the drink (and maybe hids it too!) or maybe just get her some wine? Winc is the new big thing in wine. Full disclosure: I don’t actually drink wine. My husband has been trying for years and I just don’t like it. BUT I have a friend whose opinion I trust who swears by Winc as her wine supplier. They offer some fun gift boxes (the “unwind with chardonnay” box is pictured below) that are a great option if the mom you’re buying for loves her Vino!
For The Fashionista
I’m finicky about my clothes. I’m not small (I’m a 16/18) and I hate cheap clothes. I’m a Paisley Raye stylist because I love the clothes and I love how they fit all body types. They are also high quality, stylish and made in the USA. The Lotus and Primrose dresses are my picks for great spring dresses that are perfect for Mother’s Day Gifts or gifts all day long.
For Your Mother In Law
Let’s face it mother in law’s are sometimes hard to buy for. Make it simple and grab her a mug that professes how much you like her.
Or, maybe you don’t like her that much? Let’s be honest not everyone loves their mother in law and if that present seems a little off then I love a gorgeous Erin Condren pouch. I have it in pink and it is perfect for pens, planning accessories and more. Pair it with an Erin Condren notebook and you have a great gift for that harder to buy for mother in law.
For the Well Caffeinated Mom
Are you looking for a gift for a coffee loving mom? (are there mom’s that aren’t needing a little coffee now and then?). Grab your caffeinate mom a subscription box of specialty coffee. Java Momma offers a fun “Momma’s Picks” subscription box. The box features three coffees each month in fun themes. May has a Cinco de Mayo theme and churro coffee sounds super yummy!
If you’re not into subscription boxes you could grab a fun creature mug. These fun mugs reveal a t-Rex, cactus, unicorn or my favorite, a hedgehog as you drink your coffee.
My husband struggles looking for gifts for me in May. It’s Mother’s Day, my birthday and our anniversary. Usually for my birthday he says pick something you like and the last few years I’ve gotten a Stitch Fix. I usually get two to four boxes a year and love the great seasonal pieces, layering jackets and accessories that I get. If you aren’t familiar with stitch fix a box contains five items your stylist picks for you after you fill out your preferences on style, fit and price. You choose what you like and send back what you love. I have a lot of shoes and Stitch Fix has some great ones including my favorite pair of Stitch Fix exclusive leopard print TOMS flats. I also have some of my favorite sweaters and jackets from Stitch Fix including my new jacket I as wearing today. Grab $25 off your first order here!
For the Mom Who Has Everything
What do you get the mom who has everything? Pictures! I love giving picture gifts and picture cards. Minted has some amazing cards you can personalize for mother’s day or you can create your own mother’s day photo gift. I recently made grandma and grandpa a fun photo gift using a fairly basic frame and pictures from our backyard. They loved it and it was so easy to make. I also often make my husband photo mugs and simple photo books. Both are super easy to make on Shutterfly or similar sites.
I hope I’ve helped you find a present for the moms in your life. What are your favorite Mother’s Day presents?
