It only comes along once a year, so you better make it a good one to honor mom on her special day. We know that moms do so much to take care of us from birth through adulthood, so let’s celebrate her on this day with thoughtful gifts ideas that will truly make her smile and feel appreciated.

Perk up her senses

Brighten her days throughout the year by sending mom a bouquet of flowers each month. You can sign mom up for a subscription through a number of florist sites such as and they’ll deliver handpicked seasonal flowers right to her door all year long. Studies show that fresh flowers can reduce stress, improve your mood, clear the air and even help you sleep and we know moms need more of that!

Provide some pampering

All moms go through stress, so give her some relief with a foot or back massager. You can either buy one online like a Shiatsu Foot Massager that she can use anytime or get her a gift certificate for a massage or splurge on a full day of relaxation at the spa.

Hook her up

For busy moms on the go, she needs the latest tech gear to keep her connected.

  • Charging station. If mom has a lot of gear like a phone, tablet, smart watch and more, get her a wireless charging station to plug in all her devices at the same time.
  • Portable Bluetooth speaker. Choose a water-resistant speaker, so she can listen to tunes while she soaks in a bubble bath or take it outside in the summer by the pool or beach. Check out this option on Amazon.
  • Digital picture frame. If you haven’t been able to see your mom recently, a digital picture frame is a nice way to share your memories from afar. Some even allow you to simply email the photo and it automatically shows up on the frame. Other options include multi-function features like a clock, calendar, music, photo and video display. Check out the Atatat Digital Photo Frame on Amazon to see all the features besides just the picture frame.

Make her shine

A little sparkle and shine will make this mother’s day a memorable one for Mom. There are many choices for “mom” jewelry like a mom necklace or one with the birthstones or names of her children. A personalized gift with her initials or engraved inscription will provide that special touch.

Wine and dine her

Wine and food are a welcome present for mom. A day without cooking? She’ll be happy for the break. Take her out or order delivery at her favorite restaurant. To provide the gift that keeps giving, you can get her a wine delivery subscription that will deliver new spirits on a schedule (monthly, quarterly, etc.) right to her door. Many local wineries offer this service or you can sign up on a site like You can also hook her up for a meal-kit delivery service like Blue Apron, Home Chef or HelloFresh. There are so many to choose from, so look at the types of food they offer as well as the cost and prep time to find out the right one mom would enjoy.

Cater to her inner chef

If mom would rather cook than go out, then get her some gadgets that will make it easy for her to whip up a delicious meal. The Instant Pot is a popular gift that can do everything from soups to meals and everything in between. The Air Fryer is another must-have gadget as it provides the fried food taste everyone loves, but not the fat. Other fun gadgets to get your foodie mom include a pasta maker, spiralizer, stand mixer or blender for smoothies.

Whatever gift you choose, mom will feel the love knowing it came from you.
