It doesn’t matter how old you are, there will never be a time when you’re too old to call your mother when you’re seeking advice or need help. She’s your safety net, your rock, your best friend. And what does she ask in return? Not much. Take the time you need to show her just how much you care by taking a look at our selection of great gifts for her that will definitely bring a smile to her face.
Nothing brings a smile to a mom’s face like a great outfit chosen for her by her kids. It doesn’t matter if it’s clothes for her latest workout craze or plus size summer dresses, you know her style and can find something she’ll love.
You can’t go wrong with jewelry, especially if it’s a timeless classic. Let her remain trendy indefinitely with items featuring lab diamonds or other gems that don’t go out of style. No matter what you get her – a ring, bracelet, necklace, earrings, etc. – she’ll be able to wear it with pride knowing that it came from your heart.
Most moms treasure memories with their kids, so why not give her the opportunity to make some new ones? Take her on a shopping trip to Vegas, a trip to the beaches in Florida, or even on that dream trip she’s always wanted to take. She’ll love making memories with you and can brag about it to all her friends when you return.
Moms tend to like flowers too. Sure, you could send her a bouquet of hothouse blooms, but they’ll die soon. Why not get her birth month flowers? These have sentimental and symbolic meanings. This is a gift that she can watch growing and changing daily, just as she did with you. This is a great gift for moms that are sentimental, gardeners, or who just don’t want any more stuff.
Long Distance Lamps
This is a unique gift that can light up her life. You keep one and send the other to her. When you turn yours on with just a touch of the hand, the other one will light up regardless of where in the world it happens to be. Each of you will be able to set it up using Wi-Fi, and then when you want to let her know you’re thinking about her, just touch the lamp to light hers up. The lights change colors and come in a variety of designs.
Wine Cork States
If your mom is a wine lover, she might enjoy keeping some of the corks from those bottles that are special or sentimental to her. It’s just rude to toss them into a drawer or plastic cup. Why not get her a display board in the shape of your birth state or the state where she lives? They’re made from Baltic birch plywood and can become a piece of art that’s worthy of being on the wall in any room in her home.
Birthstone Wishing Balls
A birthday is a chance to reflect and even to look forward to what you plan to accomplish in the coming year. A wishing ball is a handblown glass ball that comes with 52 tiny slips of paper to be used once a week. You can record good things that happened, your wishes for that week, or messages of gratitude and hope. Simply coil them up and slip them into the tiny hole located near the base of the ball and they’ll become a part of the permanent display. The wishes can’t come back out because just as with birthday candles, you don’t tell them or they won’t come true.
Hopefully, with the gift ideas here, you’ll be inspired to find the ideal gift for your mom, whether it’s for Mother’s Day, her birthday, or just because.
