4 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Let me kick this thing off by notifying you all that Mother’s Day is May 10th. That is just a couple of weeks away!

This year is my first year celebrating Mother’s Day since Jack was born. I absolutely celebrated last year, because mamas who are pregnant are totally still mamas! But it was different for sure. Last year I celebrated the beauty of nurturing the little life within. This year, I get to celebrate almost 8 months of daily loving on, snuggling with and caring for my jolly little baby. I’m so honored to be his mother!

Whether you’re a mama yourself and need to drop some hints about what you’d like on your special day, or looking for ideas for the moms or mom figures in your life, below are four of my favorite gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Be sure to order your gift ASAP to make sure it arrives on time!

Something from Artifact Uprising
I’ve been completely obsessed with Artifact Uprising ever since we used them to make our 2014 family photo album. Their products are modern and beautiful, and really the perfect gifts for mamas. I love the wood block + prints, as well as the wood calendar, but really any of their products would make for a fabulous gift for the mothers in your life.

Delicate, Personalized Jewelry
Something—anything—with a mama’s kids’ initials is always a hit. It’s customized, thoughtful and a gift to be cherished. I personally have a beautiful Tiny Tags necklace with Jack’s initials on it that I got for my birthday and it’s so, so dear to me. Baublebar also has a large collection of personalized jewelry to choose from. My top picks are the build-your-own charm pendant necklace—which has initial charms as an option—and this personalized tiny dog tag necklace.

Subscription Box
An obvious and highly relevant choice would be Mommy Mailbox, though Birchbox, Olive Box and Rocksbox are two other choices that might be better options depending on the kind of mama you’re shopping for.

Spa Appointment
I saved the best for last…the spa. What mom doesn’t want to be pampered for a day? Make it easy for the mom in your life and call ahead to book her a spa treatment (or two!) you know she’ll love, and pay for it in advance. Book it for Mother’s Day itself, or a date in the future that you know will work for her. Some moms—especially with young children—feel guilty taking time for themselves, so already having it booked makes it easier for them to just give in and accept a much-needed “me” day. I can tell you now, this is exactly what I’ll be doing for Mother’s Day!

P.S. As obsessed with that Good Morning Beautiful mug as I am? You can find it here.
