30+ Mother’s Day gift ideas for moms and grandmothers for all budgets in sentimental, beauty, home, and creative gifts.
True story: I was born on Mother’s Day, so each year, I like to wink at my mom and say, “You’re welcome.” Totally tongue in cheek, I swear. 😉
After a collective 34 hours of labor between these two girlies, I have an entirely new appreciation for my mother.
I pulled together over 30 Mother’s Day gift ideas ideas in this gift guide with of some of my favorite things I already own and love (or have gifted before) + gift ideas I’ve love to receive myself.
I Asked Thousands of Moms What They Really Wanted for Mother’s Day
Last week, I asked thousands of moms in our Instagram stories, “What was the best Mother’s Day gift you ever received?” and “What is the number one thing you would love to receive for Mother’s Day?”
These were some of the answers:
- “I just want time with my mom doing things we love for a day without interruptions.”
- “A hotel stay away from my kids!”
- “Now that I’m older and my kids are busy, I just really want time with them to hang out with me.”
- “A house cleaning service!”
- “I want no chores, no cooking, just watching TV with lots of snacks and takeout.”
- “A spa day fully paid and planned!”
- “New patio furniture!”
- “An uninterrupted day by the pool.”
- “A necklace with my kids’ birthstones.”
- “Homemade breakfast and a trip to the nursery to plan my spring/summer annuals with the family.”
- “I’d just love professional family photos without any complaints.”
- “My college aged son gave me a painting class that we did together.”
- “My young adult kids made me a spread of scones, tea sandwiches, tea, and silly hats!”

Waffle Robe – This robe is so soft, lightweight, and absorbent + a great price!
Countertime Skincare Regiment Set – By far my absolute favorite skincare set for firming and brightening.
Vanity Planet Ionic Facial Steamer – Like having access to a facial any time you want right at home. Add lavender essential oils for a boost.
Custom Portrait Pencil Sketch – Turn any photo into a pencil sketch! I love this idea for grandmothers too.
Artkive Keepsake Art Book – If you have an overflowing art pile from the stack of finger painting projects your kiddos bring home from school, this service consolidates all of them into one neat book.
Custom Birth Flower Necklace – Robert gave me this necklace last year of our girls’ birth month flowers, and I wear it nearly every day!
Personalized Ring Stack – I love the flexibility for customizations on this set as a thoughtful gift. Engrave kids’ names, add symbols, and suit it to your personal style.

Tea Forte Fleur Sampler Box – If your mom loves having tea parties, this is the perfect sampler to use with it.
Godiva Patisserie Truffles – Hands down the best box of chocolates ever!
Victoria Picture Frame – One of the most beautiful picture frames I’ve ever seen! Include a beloved family photo or a gift certificate to a local family portrait photographer.
Brushed Gold WiFi Digital Photo Frame – I love that this digital frame is a little “fancier” with its gold finish. Perfect for mom or grandma who have way too many photos to frame.
Floret Farm’s A Year in Flowers Book – This gorgeous book is filled with beautiful flower arranging ideas, perfect for any moms who enjoy flower gardening.
Gardener’s Harvest Basket – I gave this to my vegetable gardening enthusiast dad for Father’s Day last year and he loves it! By far the most useful gift for a gardener.
Plant of the Months Subscription – For any mom with a green thumb who loves live plants in her home, this subscription keeps the gift going for 3, 6, or 12 months.

Cool Nights Pajama Set – The best comfy pajamas for warmer months.
Wooden Breakfast Tray – Deliver this one with a homemade breakfast on it, of course. 😉
Cold Brew Iced Coffee Maker – Perfect for the coffee lover right before summer hits.
Paint By Numbers Kit Flower Art – Love this one for any creative moms that is so beautiful in the end it’s worthy to hang on the wall.
Nikon D5600 Camera – One of the best gifts I ever received was my first DSLR camera as a wedding gift that allowed me years later to take professional quality photos of my kids. This one is a great beginner model of the mirrorless version.
Calligraphy Starter Kit – There’s something stress relieving about the art of calligraphy. It’s like adult coloring books on steroids.
4-Piece Outdoor Chat Set – This patio furniture is SO GOOD and the price is even better.
Beach Blanket – For moms who desperately just need a day off relaxing on the beach.
Personalized Straw Beach Tote – Or maybe mom needs a new beach bag for pool days? Let her break it in with a day off duty poolside.

Delsey Paris Hardside Luggage – I bought this luggage last year and am still totally in love! It feels so high end.
Bartesian Cocktail and Margarita Machine – I’ve had this on my wishlist for 3 years… maybe this is the year. 😉 It’s like a Keurig for cocktails.
StubHub Concert & Theater Tickets | I’ve gifted Broadway tour tickets to my mom in the past, and it was the absolute best (that I got to enjoy with her).
Recipe Card Tin – My mom wrote all of my favorite dishes she cooks in a cookbook. This tin would be the perfect way to gift favorite family recipes too. Having them in handwriting to treasure forever makes it even better.
Handwritten Letter Transfer – The perfect gift to remember mothers who have passed.
