There are millions of Mother’s Day gifts out there, but for some of us it seems like there’s nothing mom doesn’t already have.
We totally get it! That’s why we have created a list of unique Mother’s Day gifts. So, while everyone else is buying flowers and candles, you will be impressing mom with something she never saw coming.
1. A Personalized Gift
Okay, we may be a bit biased, but personalized gifts show mom that you took the time to create something just for her. If your mother loves to cook, buy her a monogrammed apron or a cutting board personalized with her name. Personalized handbags and jewelry are great options for a fashion-forward mom and personalized tote bags are great for moms on the go. If you’re still not sure, try something for her home such as a personalized picture frame or wall hanging.
2. A Subscription Box
Imagine a gift that requires no wrapping and automatically shows up at your mom’s house once a month. This out-of-the-box gift idea will do exactly that! From makeup to meals to wine (yes, wine!), you are sure to find a plan that your mom will enjoy. Most subscription boxes offer gift cards that mom can redeem online and others, such as BirchBox, have gift plans where you can pay upfront and choose the date she will receive her first box.
3. A Local Membership
Give her the gift of experiences! A membership to a local museum, botanical garden, zoo/ aquarium, or a spa/fitness center is perfect for the mom who doesn’t need more “junk” – her words, not ours. Some memberships even include guest passes so she can invite friends or perhaps her favorite child to join her.
4. A Training or Class
Has your mom always wanted to learn how to decorate cakes? Or, maybe she’s dying to improve her golf swing. Whatever it may be, there’s likely a class out there for it! Check local community centers, high schools, and colleges for a community class schedule. Many classes are offered on nights and weekends – making it easy to fit with her busy schedule. Looking for extra brownie points? Attend the class with her!
5. A Night Out with You
There’s nothing a mom wants more than to spend time with her children! So, plan a night out. This could include traditional options such as dinner and a show, or something more daring and exciting like an Escape Room or Axe Throwing.
Regardless of what you decide to get your mother, she is sure to appreciate the time and effort you put into it.
