What to give mother that you haven´t before?

A nice dinner out?

Perfume? As if she ever wore any of the ones you gave her previously.

For this Mother´s I´ve decided to scout the web for the most original Mother´s Day gifts out there. Here are the top 5 Most Original Mother´s Day Gift on the web:

Heifer Helps Mother´s Make A Difference

1. The Gift of Giving – Support a Third World Mom In Your Mother´s Name

Why not give some charity to third world mom´s along with a birthday gift card?

Back in the days of the Spanish Civil War and WWII an Indiana farmer volunteered to aid affected families. He realized that the people needed “a cow, not a cup”. The price of several cups of milk could buy an entire cow that produces milk for years to come, ending the hunger cycle. Heifer.org helps poor and hungry people help themselves around the world.


  • The Gift Ark: Yup, just like in the Bible, Heifer goes around the world´s most needy countries with two of each of their livestock (oxen, donkeys, water buffalo, cows, sheep, goats, bees, chicks, rabbits… a small farm) and trains impoverish families how to sustain and multiply them.

Donation: $5,000.00 Dollars



  • Send A Girl To School: In communities where resources are scarce, girls are often deprived from education in favor of their brothers. With your donation, Heifer will give these girl´s families livestock and training with the condition of sending their daughters to school. This way you´ll help reduce poverty around the world by touching a little girl´s destiny.

Donation: $275.00 Dollars



  • Launch A Small Business: Heifer doesn´t only provide livestock and farm training. It also gives microloans as startup capital for a small business with management training, savings program and marketing strategies to ensure growth and sustainability.


Donation: $365.00 Dollars

2. India Gujarat Handmade Evening Bags

A gift for Mother made from the hearth of empowered women

After a massive earthquake in 2001, several northwestern regions of India were devastated. The area affected is called Rann of Kutch, a seasonal marshy saline clay desert found in the Thar Desert, in the state of Gujarat, India.

This is the home of 2500 artisan women who make intricate mirror-work embroidery. After the earthquake, they had to resort to working in agriculture, which is seasonal and crops are often affected by drought.

The Fairtrade organization in association with Indian “SETU-The Bridge to Artisans” is providing the means to market their products in developed countries like the U.K. and United States. With their aid, thousands of women have now restructured their lives with dignified social standing and continued the traditional art of handmade mirror-work embroidery.

Price: $39.00 Dollars

3. A Good Read - Fifty Shades of Grey

Now, this was a bestseller book for 2012, but since the movie is on its making I thought it was a good idea to bring it back… and the Amazon commercial makes a good laugh for this hub.

Fifty Shades of Grey is an erotic novel starting Anastasia Steele who meets the ideal man, Christian Grey. Young, wealthy, successful, brilliant and filled with controlling dark desires. Anastasia cannot resist him and explores her own appetites while walking a fine line of self-control.

Erotic and amusing, The Fifty Shades Trilogy is tale of obsession with our inner desires.


What Do Readers Say About It?

Well, it is a mixed vote between really love it or completely hate it.

Those who love the book are taken by the strong characters of Anastasia and Grey, how Anastasia falls into the arms of a controlling man just to snug the rug under his feet, the transformation of both characters during their turbulent relationship that shift from basic desires to true love.

Those who hated it compare the book to “Twilight Romance”, but really got annoyed with the amount of word repetition. Apparently it makes references to the “inner goddess “ 54 times, the characters “raise their eyebrows” 50 times, and there are 80 references to Ana´s anthropomorphic “subconscious”.

So if editorial issues really bother you, maybe should skip to mother´s day gift idea #4.

5. A Day In Bed

Finally, the best gift you can give a hardworking mom, a complete day in bed (and if it rains, the better). There is no equal feeling and memory of staying under the sheets with the whole family. Breakfast in bed, watch a movie, initiate a pillow fight… There is nothing more special for a mother than having her loved ones under her caring arms.

Price: $Love.00

Bonus Gift: Triple Molten Chocolate Cake (By Request)

By request from @bethperry (so demanding!) I include as a BONUS gift the almighty “Triple Molten Chocolate Cake”. Why is it the best gift for mothers by daughters? Because it includes 3x your average chocolate dose. I get headaches from this much chocolate, but woman achieve a state of bliss only they understand. They say chocolate produces the same effect as being in love, so yeah, an overdosed chocolate cake might just be the perfect end touch to a gift for mother from daughter. Here is the quick recipe taken from tasteofhome.com:

      With Mother's Day this next Sunday, I just had to read your Hub. You have some good ideas. I wrote a Hub about charitable donations and that's when I found out about the Heifer project. I think that is so great! Your other ideas are good, too. Being a Mom myself, I would just like to have a nice dinner with my family.

      Voted UP and I will share.
