9 Gift Ideas for Mom That Will WOW Her!

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Have you gotten her anything yet? Maybe you haven’t even started thinking about it. Well, here are some fabulous gift ideas for mom that will really impress her this Mother’s Day.

Weekend Getaway


Surprise Mom with a weekend retreat at a ski lodge or an upscale hotel so she can take some time to unwind and recharge her batteries.

Digital Camera


This is one of the best gift ideas for mom, especially new moms. Children grow up so fast, so catching those fleeting moments is important. With scrapbooking becoming so popular, digital cameras also make a great gift for the scrapbook lover.

Charitable Donation


Moms are always giving of themselves to others, so a donation to her favorite charity in her name might be just the ticket to putting a smile on her face. It would truly be a gift that would keep on giving, and it would benefit someone else, in addition to Mom.

Buy a Star or a Tree


You’ve probably seen those commercials for the “buy a star” programs, where you can register any star with the name of your choice, for a fee. And various nurseries offer trees for sale that can be planted wherever Mom wants. A gift like this will last for years to come – probably long after we ourselves are gone.

Spa Day


Most mothers I know could use a spa day, whether the children still live at home or have long since moved away. Spa Days range from a whole package of all the goodies, like mud baths and lunch, or just a half-hour massage.

Don’t have the money to buy her a full spa day? Why not send her a “spa day” in a gift basket, like this one.


The Eucalyptus and Vanilla Spa Basket includes everything you need for an awesome spa experience: soap, hand cream, body lotion, bath slippers, a hairbrush, a bath brush, loofah, and a hand massager.



Personalized jewelry is always among the most popular gift ideas for mom. I just don’t think you can go wrong with it. Especially if it has the birthstones of her children and/or grandchildren in it. I love this family tree necklace from Eve’s Addiction, especially since you can include your family members’ names along with their birthstones.

Food Gift Baskets

You can find gift baskets that contain any and everything. There are baskets that are specifically designed for Mother’s Day, but other choices include gourmet food and/or fruit baskets, the abovementioned spa baskets, and there are even candle baskets. Many places will also design custom baskets for you to fit any style or budget.

Flowers and Plants


This is the most common Mother’s Day gift. It’s the obvious choice for that bouquet lover or for someone who’s extremely picky. Flowers please everyone (except those who suffer from allergies). You can even kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, by selecting a unique plantable gift card – they can be planted and will grow into a plant than Mom can enjoy for a long time to come.

The General Star Treatment


Being a good mother is hard, so Mom deserves the “star treatment” every once in a while. Start by allowing her to sleep in a bit, and then bring her breakfast in bed. Throw in a little cleaning, meal preparation for the rest of the day, and childcare, and let Mom relax and read a book or do whatever else she wants. Basically, just give her a little (or a lot of) downtime.
