Another holiday another gift guide! The hardest one for me to make probably. That’s because I have read just about every Mother’s Day Gift Guide there is out there. My mom is a tough person to buy gifts for (she hates when I say this, hi mom!) because she has most of the things she wants and so I have to get something really special.
I’ve done okay at this a few times, getting amazing gifts. But it’s hard to do this consistently. But over the years and after reading MANY blog posts on the topic I think I have some of the best ideas narrowed down. So to take inspiration from me and hopefully your mom will love what you get her. Of course for Mother’s Day you should also try and spend time with your mom – that’s the most important.
At Christmas everyone was obsessed with those gold monogrammed antropologie mugs but now that the hype has passed you should check out all of the brand’s other amazing mugs. The travel mugs are especially amazing. There’s a sweet salutations section that has cute sayings like “good morning” on them but I think the Urbania are the best. Pick your mom’s favourite place to travel and let her bring a piece of that every time she leaves. Plus they’re made out of stoneware (heavy duty) and are dishwasher and microwave safe (all I ever want out of a mug).
La Mer Skincare
There’s probably nothing more luxurious. I’ve never tried it because of the hefty pricetag but everyone who has swears by it. It’s the ultimate way to pamper someone, especially if they’d never want to spend this kind of money on themselves.
Tickets to a play
This is what I got my mom for Christmas and she loved it. There are a lot of good plays going on in Toronto right now. But wherever you live there is theatre nearby – take your mom and have an experience.
Swell water bottle
The trend that just sticks around. These water bottles are beautiful and my mom LOVES hers.
If your mom is someone who writes a lot of notes then you need to look into the rifle paper company personalized stationary. It offers so many different versions, one will be to her taste. There is even an option to get a portrait of your mom drawn and added to the stationary.
Custom Phone Case
Casetify has so many different case options that are beautiful but why not go with something extra special and get her a custom case. You can add any photos, designs, all sorts of things. Make something less ugly than my example.
What could be better and more relaxing? Customize it based on what your mom really enjoys – pedicure, massage or relaxing in fun different types of pools. Bonus: make all the plans with space for yourself as well.
Okay bare with me but these things are so amazing. Rolling it across your muscles really hurts but in a way that helps and make everything better. If your mom does any type of exercise she’ll appreciate this just trust me.
These aren’t available in Canada yet but they’re so cool. You can ask it to order an uber, a pizza, anything off Amazon, have it play music, control the temperature in your house, your lights and more. It’s so cool and I will be buying one for my mom the second it’s available in Canada.
This is a definite winner. Print lots of pictures you have of you and your mom from those years of taking pictures on your phone and never printing them. Then put them together in a nice album. Memories are priceless my friends.
There will be a few other Mother’s Day posts this week to go with this week’s theme. Let me know if you buy any of these things for your Mom this year. And if you have any other suggestions let me know!
