Mother’s Day Gift Guide

You might have a mom, and she might be the bomb, but ain’t nobody got a mom like mine.”

Meghan Trainor

If you adore your mama as much as I adore mine, you know there are no gifts that can repay her for all she has done for you. BUT that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try!! I have made a list of some of the best gifts I’ve given to my mom (and other moms in my life) over the years since Mother’s Day is just around the corner!

Engraved Necklace

Engraved necklace

I bought this necklace for my sister, Cassie, for her birthday. It was engraved with her daughter’s name, Joy. It is so beautiful and simple and is the perfect statement with any outfit. I bought it in rose gold which is what the majority of her jewelry is. It also shipped and arrived quickly which is always a bonus 🙂

Family Celebrations Sign

Family Birthdays and celebrations sign

My mom has always wanted a sign like this to display/remember all of our birthdays/anniversaries/etc. The store I purchased from on Etsy is not selling them anymore, but the one above is super close and cute! It also has a ton of great reviews. My mom uses a fine point sharpie to write all of our names and dates on the circles, and it has turned out great! It’s also super easy to add more circles as needed. She hung it up as soon as she got it, and it looks adorable in her kitchen.

Mom and Daughter Bracelets

Mother and daughter bracelets

I actually purchased these bracelets for my mom and I to have when I got married. The heart on my bracelet fits into the heart outline on her bracelet. These bracelets are so beautiful and well made. I love how simple but powerful the meaning is. Perfect for a wedding, birthday, Mother’s day, or just because!

Look What I Made Sign

Picture hanger

My niece, Charlie, is an artist through and through. When I found this sign on Etsy, I knew I had to get it for my sister, Anne. It’s so simple, cute, and holds a ton of Charlie’s masterpieces. Her drawings and paintings are so special to Anne, and I love that this shows them off in a unique way.

The Magnolia Company Wreath

The Magnolia Company has the most beautiful real wreathes with all sorts of flowers and colors. While they are pretty expensive, they are made with such care and precision that they last for years. Kyle bought one for his mom over 3 years ago, and it still looks brand new.

Self Care Bundle

Last year, I made my mom a little self care package. She loved it even more than I thought she would. She is constantly putting the needs of others above her own and deserves a little pampering.

Waffle Maker

Waffle maker

I know this one is pretty random, BUT my mom’s absolute favorite breakfast food is belgian waffles. Kyle and I bought this for her a few years ago, and she was so happy (and so is the rest of the family when she brings it out during the holidays)! You don’t always have to come up with something super creative. Sometimes the practical gifts are just as good!

Framed Photos

Framed photos

Since we have so many amazing wedding photos, I picked out our favorites of Kyle and his mom and me and my mom to frame for Mother’s day this year. Super cheesy? Yes. But will they love it? Absolutely. I found cute white frames at Meijer, and I think they look great with the pictures! (I had already wrapped my mom’s and didn’t want to unwrap it).

Special Outings

Mom, Aunt Rhonda, and I at Cake Bake Shop

My aunt and I took my mom to the Cake Bake shop for her birthday last year, and it was so fun and special. There are so many things you can take your mom to do like mani/pedis, facials, shopping sprees, favorite restaurants, etc.

I hope this helps you as you prepare for Mother’s Day this year! Let me know any of your mom’s favorite gifts in the comments below. 🙂
