With about two billion mothers on the planet, which makes Mother’s Day the second most popular gifting day, there’s no shortage of great gift ideas for special moms. And fortunately you still have time to shop! But where do you begin? Before you get so overwhelmed with choices that you simply send flowers for the twelfth year in a row, we’ve compiled a list of tried-and-true classics—and gave them an updated twist.
Picture This: Every mom loves photos, but it’s surprising how many places you can put a smiling face. From charm bracelets to cell phone covers to flower vases. And , don’t forget about personalizing your card with a favorite photo too!
Special Delivery: If she’s expecting flowers, send ice cream! Do the delivery thing differently this Mother’s Day…or, better yet, all year long.
Gadget Gifts: Whether she needs a car key locator, a tiny speaker for her favorite tunes, or simply wants longer cell phone battery life, the electronic ideas are endless.
Tote-ally Cool: Instead of another purse, lighten mom’s load with a stylish bag that can handle all of her stuff.
Monogram Mania: Keep it classic or go high-tech by giving her earrings with her initials or even engraving her iPad.
Theme Gift Basket: Candles? Cookies? Coffee? Assemble a collection of what she loves most or order a beautiful basket online.
Sweet Touches: Candy can make a creative gift that’s inexpensive, too. Tell mom you love her “to pieces” with a decorated jar of Reese’s pieces. Or put candy bars on posterboard for a creative message.
Personalize It: Fun to make…thoughtful to give. Write your favorite moments on tiny slips of paper and put them in a keepsake box or jar for a gift she’ll open again and again.
Whatever the gift, don’t forget to tell Mom what she means to you – that is the gift that will mean the most to her!
