Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift GuideMother’s Day is just right around the corner! (At least, here in the USA) And each and every year, I struggle with what to get. What exactly do you give someone who means so much more to you than just a bouquet of flowers or a mug? It’s so hard!

A Mother’s Day gift can be handmade or purchased. It could be a simple card with a thoughtful message or a huge splashy gift basket! Whatever it is, it must come from the heart and say “I love you and you are important to me”. Isn’t that the point of ANY gift?

So I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites! These could be for your Mother, Grandmother, Best Friend who is a new mom, whoever you need to treat!

I’m not a particularly crafty girl, so the handmade gifts are limited. HA!

For the Beauty Fan:

A pretty set of hand lotions and a sweet card is always thoughtful.  Plus, you can never go wrong with a pretty smelling candle! And an eye shadow pallet in neutral colors is a gift that everyone wants, but wouldn’t buy themselves.

    I always struggle with what to get my mom. She always gets the best stuff for me, so the bar is a little high. 🙂 I know she doesn’t even expect a gift for Mother’s Day but of course I have to get her something! 🙂 Thanks for the suggestions!

      That’s exactly the problem – our moms are so good at giving amazing gifts! It’s hard to find an amazing gift to give them.

      I’m not a crafty person, but I thought the hand card was something Elizabeth and I could accomplish!

    Great variety of gifts!! I’m still on the hunt for the perfect gift for my mom. She is such a good gift giver that I always try extra hard to find something special for her. In years past, we’d buy her a rose bush for her garden or something fun to plant in the yard.

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      I love the idea of an actual plant to plant, not just a bouquet! I think that’s so cool. My mom is a gardener, so that would be right up her alley. Now, if only I knew what plant to buy??

      You’re welcome! We are going to tackle it this week. Fingers crossed it goes ok! I’m not the best crafter/DIYer!
