Mother’s Day Gift Ideas & Deals
“Who needs superheros when I have mom?”
We couldn’t agree more, so let’s kick off by giving a shout out to all our SUPER MOMS out there!
Mother’s Day is coming up, and for all that they do for us, our moms deserve to feel extra special. So take a moment to thank your mom and spend some quality time with her! And if you’re looking to spoil the women in your life with a thoughtful gift or experience, we’re here to help spark your imagination with our gift guide.
We know a lot of gifts out there can seem like “the overplayed Mother’s Day gifts”, making the search a little trickier. So if you want something practical, personalized or out of the ordinary, we have you covered! And if you’re still keen on the more typical gifts but looking for a little extra pizzazz? We’ve got some cool ideas for “classics with a twist”! And let’s not forget the long-distance moms! Whatever type of mom you have, and no matter the distance between you, let’s surprise them and make their day!

Adventure & Fitness moms
If you’re like me and have an outdoorsy mom, you’re going to need something a little different. Whether she’s a nature-lover or into fitness, think practical and versatile.
Why not take her on a spontaneous adventure off the grid! Plan a camping trip, stay in a cabin or find a nice hotel in a new place she’s never explored.

Quirky & Handmade gifts
Sometimes I’m in the mood to find gifts that are a little different, so I thought I’d include some quirky or personalized ideas to help you make your gift extra unique this year. On Etsy, Smilebox or Shutterfly you can find a variety of prints or customized photos that act as a daily reminder to your mom of how truly awesome you think she is!
Mugs are another great daily reminder while mom sips on her morning cup of coffee or tea! Or for the moms on-the-go, you could get a travel cold cup instead. You can also add a nice selection of tea or coffee for an extra touch. Or if chocolate is her thing, get mom a set of cocoa mugs and some freshly made hot cocoa to comfort her on those colder, rainy days!
You should also check out the great section of artisan hand-made finds on Amazon crafted by local businesses, which are sure to make for a truly unique gift! If your mom is into photography, why not treat her to a polaroid camera to create those instant family memories? Or if she’a bookworm, Indigo currently has some great selections of books for Mother’s Day- plus you could find her a cool bookend to go with it! Or if you want to get more hands on, why not hand craft a gift yourself? Whether you want to get artsy or are helping out your little siblings, this can be a sweet gift for your mom to treasure!
Breakfast in Bed & Family Time
Start Mother’s Day off just right by surprising her to a home-made breakfast in bed! She’ll be sure to love it. If you’re stuck on recipe ideas, you should give Hello Fresh a go! Get a subscription to their wide range of fresh healthy ingredients and seasonal recipes (plus 800 SB), so that you can keep enjoying different easy and fun family meals. Or if your mom loves cooking, get her a subscription too! (but don’t forget to still treat her to her very own breakfast in bed!!)

And if you’re really looking for extra brownie points, gift her with a clean house, while she relaxes to some relaxing music with a glass of wine!
You could also take this idea and plan a family picnic at a local park or find a spot mom likes where you can enjoy spending time together in nature (and you can even treat her to a new picnic basket or picnic backpack). Explore great deals for cooking kit essentials and picnics at Amazon, eBay, Bed Bath & Beyond, The Home Depot, Best Buy and more (with up to 5% Cash Back).
