Mother’s Day is coming! Do you know what you’re getting your mom? Now would be a good time to recall all those conversations you’ve had with her about what she likes and doesn’t like. Just in case you’re clueless, here are five affordable gift ideas any mom would be happy to receive.
All women love jewelry, but what will make your gift unique? If you can, take a look in her jewelry box, or if you see her before Mother’s Day, take note of what kind of earrings she wears. You can never go wrong with having her piece monogrammed with either her initials, the initials of you and your siblings, or just a sweet message. Personalizing is the touch that shows you put in the extra effort.
2. iPhone Case
If your mom is like mine and she’s just now joining the world of iPhone users, she might be scrambling for a decent-looking iPhone case. Again, personalization is key. Look for a case with a scene of her favorite location (ex. the beach), a quote from her favorite book, or one with her initials.
For the literary lover, you can never go wrong with a book or even a year’s subscription to their favorite magazine. A lot of mom’s revel in reading magazines with a lot of delicious recipes or decorating tips, such as Real Simple or Food, or magazines with beautiful photography, such as National Geographic Traveler. If your mom has converted to Kindle, why not get her a cover?
4. Dining & Cooking
Is your mom always in the kitchen whipping up delicious dinners and mouthwatering desserts? Consider adding something unique and fun to her kitchen space with a decal for her mixer, a picturesque cutting board, or printed dishtowels.
5. Gift Gard
Pick up a gift certificate to her favorite store, her favorite website, or a spa in town where she can be pampered one afternoon.
Still not sure what to get? Another good way to get a sense of what your mom likes is by checking out her Pinterest or Amazon account. What she pins or adds to her wish list is basically her telling you what she wants – so take a hint!
