4. GARDEN ART
Many gardeners believe that Mother’s Day is a great time to begin planting that summer garden. Make Mom’s hours in the garden even more enjoyable with some great garden art. Fountains, statuary, wind chimes and yard stakes are ideal gifts for your green thumb mum.
5. TRINKET TRAYS
Help Mom keep track of all her favorite jewelry and other keepsakes with a cute little ceramic or metal dish featuring whimsical images of everything from bumblebees to birds. You can even get dishes emblazoned with snarky or inspirational phrases, too.
6. GRAPHIC TEES
Who says graphic T-shirts are just for teens and twentysomethings? Wouldn’t your mom look great in a tee featuring a beautiful pineapple design in rose gold? Or maybe she is really stuck on the succulent trend and would love a cactus shirt. Looking for more subtle? Try a simple T-shirt that says “Blessed.”
7. DISH TOWELS & MATCHING APRONS
So maybe Mom cringes when she thinks about all the previous Mother’s Day gifts of utensils (No More Wooden Spoons!), but she will simply adore a perfectly paired set of dish towels and a matching apron. Add some humor to your kitchen with a veggie-themed towel set with sayings like “Oh Kale No,” “Let the Beet Drop,” or “Don’t Make Me Get Jalapeño Business.”
You can never go wrong with a delicious collection of chocolate on Mother’s Day. Truffles, chewy caramels, nougats and more will always be a welcomed gift. Simple enough!
Brighten up Mom’s day every time she pays for groceries or fills up her tank by giving her an adorable wallet in a cheerful, summery hue. Does your mom prefer a large clutch with space for everything or a dainty coin purse? There are dozens of available options ready to wrap up.
10. MAKEUP BAGS
Sarcastic statements have become super popular and are popping up on everything from T-shirts to wall plaques and more. Why not add a little snark to Mom’s morning makeup routine with a cosmetics bag boasting statements like “But First, Makeup” or “May the Wings of Your Eyeliner Always Be Even” or “The Struggle is Real.”
While a bouquet of fresh flowers are always a delight, those blooms quickly fade. This year give Mom a floral creation which will endure many seasons. Silk flowers, whether clutched together in a bouquet to accent the top of antique books or featured in a spring wreath, will prompt memory-filled smiles for years to come.
12. BATH BOMBS
Those cheesy commercials where a harried mom desperately begs “Calgon, take me away,” might not be on regular TV rotation anymore, but moms still love to indulge in a long, luxurious bath time. Want to make Mom’s bath time even more indulgent? Give her a heavenly scented bath bomb, bubble bar, body wash or creamy lotion.
Cinderella had it right, one shoe really can change your life. So, this year make Mom’s Mother’s Day even better by picking out the perfect pair of shoes. Try a spring bootie, strappy sandal or even a pair of glitter sneakers.
