I’m a major procrastinator when it comes to gift shopping, especially if I don’t know what to get the person I’m shopping for. One year, I still hadn’t done all my Christmas shopping, and it was Christmas Day! I’m sure most of you don’t procrastinate that hard, but if you’re still one to put off shopping until the last minute, I’m here to help. Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you have no idea what to get your amazing Mom, here’s a list of some cool ideas.
1. Wine Glass and/or Coffee Mug
A lot of moms love to drink wine and/or coffee, and if your mom is one of those moms, a personalized wine glass or coffee mug, or one with a cute saying on it, would be the perfect gift.
Luckily, you can find these kinds of cups all over the place now. Some of my personal favorite wine glasses are this one from Charming Charlie that says ‘Mommy Fuel,’ this one from Francesca’s that says ‘Best Mom Ever’ with flowers around it, this pink floral one from Macy’s that say ‘Love You Mom’, and this one from Hallmark that says ‘Mom You Are Loved.’
For coffee mugs, my favorites are this one from Etsy that says ‘Mama Bear’ , this one from Francesca’s that says ‘Best Mom Ever,’ this one from Bed Bath & Beyond that says ‘#MOMLIFE,’ and this one from Amazon that says ‘My Favorite Child Gave Me This Mug.’
These are all great gifts, but if you want something more personalized, check out this photo pub glass from Personal Creations, where you can upload your own photo to a glass! Shutterfly also has a collaged coffee mug that you can put all your favorite photos of mom on.
2. Trinket Dish
If your mom is into cute little things to put on her dresser or night stand, a cute little trinket box or dish would be great for her. I really like this one from Charming Charlie. It says ‘All the Moms in the World, I’m so glad you’re mine.’ It’s a really sweet message that would bring tears to any mom’s eyes.
Some of my other picks are this one from Francesca’s that says ‘Love You Mom,’ this one from Hallmark that says ‘MOM’ with a heart for an ‘O’, this one also from Francesca’s that says ‘Mom, you’ve loved me since the day I was born… I’ve loved you my whole life,’ and this one also from Hallmark that says ‘My Mother, My Friend.’
Items like these are the perfect place for your mom to place her jewelry, and she’ll think of you every time she looks at it.
3. A Throw Pillow
I love home decor, and maybe your mom does too. If that’s the case, then a decorative pillow would be a great idea for a Mother’s Day gift. One I really love, is this “Close to Her Heart” personalized pillow from Personalization Mall. You can add up to 21 names, or other words, and they’re placed in the shape of a heart. You can choose to put the people your Mom loves the most, or words that describe her, or a combination of both. It’s such a cute idea!
Some other great ideas are this ‘I Heart Mom’ wool throw pillow from Wayfair. Wayfair also has a ton of other cute mom themed pillows as well. There’s also this ‘Love You Mom’ pillow from Pier 1 Imports, and this pillow from Etsy that has the definition of ‘mother.’
There’s a lot of great ideas out there, and if you don’t like any of these, check sites like Etsy for unique and personalized items. Remember, don’t wait until the last minute like I usually do!
