Unique Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is a special day where we get to celebrate the amazing mothers in our lives. It’s a day to make those amazing mothers feeling special and spoiled. Something that is hard is finding the perfect gift. The hard part is finding that perfect gift. We all want these special women to love their gifts. So…what do we give them? And…where do we find it? Let us do the hard and time consuming work for you! We hope this gift helps you spoil someone special in your life. If you are a mother we wish you the very best Mother’s Day and hope you get your own unique gift and more importantly get spoiled!


Treating an extraordinary mother with a special piece of jewelry is always a lovely way to treat someone. I have often treated a loved one with a unique piece of jewelry. Sometimes I choose a personalized piece of jewelry. When you can reach someone’s heartstrings the gift is a total success. When I think of Mother’s Day I think of flowers. We usually spend the day of Mother’s Day getting and planting our garden and planters. It’s a tradition I love. When I saw this Flower of the Month Necklace, I instantly thought it would be a sweet gift for the gardener you love.

Recently, we had the honor and pleasure of having Writer+Podcaster Laura Tremaine on our bookclub to discuss her debut book Share Your Stuff. I’ll Go First. (which would also make a great gift). After we met Laura we wanted to say thank you to her. Instantly I went to Etsy and started searching. I came upon this personalized bracelet and knew it was perfect. I had it personalized to say SHARE to thank her and to honor her book.

Wow aren’t these necklaces gorgeous?! Now as we get older, eh hem, we start to appreciate a little longer of a necklace. Thankfully long necklace are very on trend. I love the look of a stone pendant necklace. It’s a great way to add a pop of color into an outfit. I’m truly loving these necklaces. The Chrysocolla Pendent can come in different shades and variations that you will be able to choose from. The Moonstone and Aventurine stone necklace is an absolutely elegant necklace.

Look at these incredible and unique earrings. Full disclosure I don’t often wear earrings. Earrings kind of bug my ears. When I’m dressed up I will wear earrings, but not usually day to day. I have a friend that doesn’t feel complete until she puts her earrings on. I must say that I’m in love with these earrings. They are so unusual and spectacular. The Hoops are made with Portuguese tiles. Raw edge stones are so unique and so pretty!

For the Gardener

Binks has this Indoor Hydroponic Garden and she absolutely loves it. If you have a mom in your life that likes to cook wouldn’t this make such a great gift?! Several years ago my husband and I got this VegTrug above ground planter and it is one of my very favorite parts of summer! I grow tomato plants to make homemade salsa and tomato sauce. I have also grown peppers, cucumbers, carrots, green beans, and ground cherries. What I love about this planter is that it keeps the bunnies away (we have many rabbits in our yard), and it is almost completely weed free. The only weeds we get is if the trees drop seeds. It’s so very easy to keep clean. My kids love to harvest! If you like to garden but want a manageable garden this planter is for you!


My best friend and a couple other friends are obsessed with their Longchamp Bags. (I’m a backpack gal so I don’t have one). They come in different sizes and colors! Any mama would be thrilled to get one. I’m loving this personalized Ribbon Straw Beach Tote. This would be a perfect gift to kick off summer.

The Gift of Relaxation

You really can’t go wrong by gifting a mom things that help them with self-care. Let’s be real, self-care when you’re a mom is unbelievably hard. Sometimes we need to be forced to take care of ourselves. Ever heard of Kristin Bell? Well she created a CBD line that will help any mother relax after a hard day. CBD lotions and oils are pretty amazing, whether its fatigue or aches. When I got my wisdom tooth out I found my CBD lotion to help me the most with pain. I put CBD lotion on my arms each night to help me relax. Another wonderful product is Life Around 2 Angels bath bombs. They have almost 28,000 5 star reviews! These bath bombs don’t dye the tub, which is a bonus, and the smells are incredible.

Last year we did a bathroom remodel and I got a beautiful new tub! My husband got me this bath tub tray for me! I’d like to say that I get to use this bathtub a lot but frankly my kids use it a lot more than me haha. Both Binks and I love a good subscription box. I found this highly rated Read & Relax subscription box. I must say that Cratejoy has a subscription box for just about anything. Around the holidays, I purchased several for my kids and one for a friend with cancer. I was happy with them and everyone thought they were really fun.

Binks introduced me to FabFitFun and I’m obsessed. I started with just getting it once (save $10 using our link). After my first box I subscribed to the annual membership, I’m on my 3rd year. I love getting my box each quarter and getting to try new products. There are so many I’ve loved and continue to use. My mother-in-law loves her UGG slippers. These would definitely make a great gift for someone!


Wine, Cheese, and Coffee…does a mother really need anything else?!! I love to entertain and I love cheese so this highly rated Cheese Board would make a great gift for someone who love cheese and entertaining! I love that the cheese knives, pics, and tags are in a pull out drawer so everything is together in one spot. For my birthday this year, my husband got me this Cold Brew Coffee Maker. I love it! Make a pot and have it for a day or two, well depending on how much you drink. Just stick it in the fridge!

Ooh Infused Sea Salts…now that would be a great gift! If a mother in your life likes to cook these salts would help a cook enhance their meals. Yummy! Who doesn’t love to look at beautiful pictures of delicious foods. We have put together a couple Cookbook Posts that we’d love to share with you. Cookbook Volume I. Cookbook Volume II. A shout out to Half Baked Harvest Cookbook. We love trying recipes from Half Baked Harvest. So delicious!

We recently received a Sous Vide for a gift. It’s a different way to cook. It’s a slow process and helps to maintain a temperature and then finish the food in a cast iron pan, for example a steak. Another great gift would be this stick hand blender. It’s great for salsa, salad dressings, shakes, sauces, blending soups, etc. Any cook would love both of these products.

Tech Gifts

I love my Air Pods Pro. My husband probably say he hates them haha because I wear them all the time. I listen to a lot of books on Air Pods. I love them so so much. Another gift I have been gifted and both my mom and mother-in-law a digital frames. They are so fun and a great way to share pictures with people. I love having old and new photos playing around the clock. Such a great gift.

I’m sorry we’re a total Apple family so I’m promoting items related to Apple because that’s what I know. I love my Apple Watch. One of my favorite things is the breathe reminder. This sounds silly but I use it a lot to just take a minute to stop and focus on my breathing. I also use it with my 4 year old when he’s having a tantrum. It has a visual that helps him focus. I like that I can answer my phone or text back from my watch. I just really like it and know it would make a great gift. When I got my Apple Watch my husband got me a 3-in-1 charging station for my nightstand. It’s awesome. I actually even brought it on our recent trip. It’s such an easy way to charge all my goodies.


As a mother, gifts are nice, fun, and appreciated! Don’t forget to spoil that mom in your life. Maybe a nice note, some beautiful flowers. How about breakfast in bed? Do something nice for her and make her feel special. A mother works so hard, let Mother’s Day be a day they get to sit back and relax! Frankly, we should honor moms on this significant day so they feel extraordinary. Let her know you acknowledge all her hard work. Do something she loves so she knows value her on this wonderful day! Go Moms! You deserve all the love!

    1. We’ve had it for 4 summers now and it’s one of my favorite parts of summer. I can grow tomatoes, because I love making homemade sauce, and it’s so manageable! There are very few weeds. My kids can get involved. And the rabbits can’t get in, we have tons where I live. I really really love it!

  1. These are such great ideas! I’ve been looking already for things that I can buy for my mom and mother-in-law. My mother in law lives to cook so there are definitely some things here I can choose from that I know she’ll love ❤️

  2. Such fabulous ideas! As a mother of two boys I would go for the beach straw bag and the cooking salt collection. The hoops with Portuguese tiles stole my heart. Happy Mother’s day!
