The first gift that comes to mind for Moms is personalized jewelry. This gift is both thoughtful and unique, as it’s the personal touches that will make it stand out. You could look for a piece with her initials, something that says “Mom”, or even have the item engraved. Some of the best items to personalize are necklace pendants, rings, and bracelets.

Moms are known for always carrying around a small collection of photos in their wallets, so you can play into that with a photo-related gift. You can create a photo book of special moments and memories, have prints made and frames, or even make a customized photo calendar or mug. These are the kinds of gifts she’ll want to keep forever.

Fresh Plants Will Make Her Garden Pop

What makes this such a great gift is that it has lasting power, especially if you choose a perennial. Perennials will come back yearly, so she’ll always remember you gifted that plant or shrub to her. If her garden is currently lacking in color and variety, you can opt for annuals instead as they famously come in bright colors like red, yellow, coral, pink, and orange.

Another option in this category is a hanging planter. Be sure to pick one that looks full, contains different plants and flowers, and will work well in her lighting conditions. If you’re unsure of where she will hang it, opt for something that likes partial sun as they tend to be the more forgiving.

Create a DIY Gift Basket

Gift baskets are a great idea for pretty much any occasion, but the problem with the pre-made ones is that the items included may not suit the mom in your life. Instead, why not make one so that you have full control not only of the items but also of the budget?

You can begin by picking a theme, as that makes shopping much simpler. Once you have a theme, find the basket you want to use (it can even be a tote, bin, oversized platter, or decorative bowl) and start filling it.

This is why a meal delivery subscription makes perfect sense for Mother’s Day.

Many of these services allow for all kinds of diets and restrictions, simply pick and choose what makes sense for the mom in your life. You can also choose the frequency of delivery and how many meals will be delivered in total. Some come with pre-measured and chopped ingredients, as well as a recipe card so you just follow along at home, whereas other services offer pre-cooked meals that just need re-heating or cooking.
