Do you need help finding that perfect Mother's day gift or need gift ideas for that special mother in your life? If you are having trouble figuring out what to get her, here are some gift ideas.

This year Mother's Day is on Sunday May 12th, 2013.

Surprise mom with that special gift and make her day!

Do It Yourself Gift Ideas

Make Mom a Gift from the Heart

Make mom a homemade gift. Have the kids help make mom a special note or other surprise. These are cheap and inexpensive gifts but they will make mom's heart jump for joy when she sees her gift.

Some examples include:

  • Fill a Mason Jar with Bath Salts and Line Lid with Fabric
  • Fill Jar with Different Colored Sand
  • Fill basket full of sea shells
  • Pick Flowers from Yard and Put in a Vase (don't take the neighbors flower unless you have permission)
  • Fill Jar with Different types of Polished Rocks (like in the picture)
  • Cook mom breakfast in bed or her favorite meal
  • Make her a homemade card


Make Mom A Gift Basket with Her Favorite Items

Make mom a gift basket that has her favorite items in it. These items could include: lotions, perfume, candy, candles, bath salts, ect. Place items in a basket, add shredded colored paper, place basket into clear cellophane wrap, and tie her favorite color ribbon around the cellophane wrap.

Massage at the Spa

Get Mom a Spa Package

Who doesn't appreciate a little pampering? Most moms would jump at the chance to spend the day at the spa relaxing. Mom can choose from a deep tissue massage or a facial. This is a great way for mom to relax and unwind, she will definitely come home relaxed.

Getting a Pedicure

Give Mom a Pedicure or Manicure Gift Certificate

Give mom a gift certificate to her favorite nail salon is another great way to pamper mom. She can relax with a chair massage while getting her feet or nails done. Again, who doesn't like to be pampered a little bit. Mom will come home relaxed and have pretty nails.

If you can't afford a nail salon package, create your own pedicure kit and give it to mom. Buy mom a new color of nail polish, foam toes inserts, and a foot bath.

A Cute Bracelet

Buy Mom a New Piece of Jewelry

You can't go wrong giving mom jewelry. It doesn't have to be anything expensive or extravagant. She might like a new pair of earrings or necklace.

A mother's ring would be a good idea that has each of her children's birthstones in it.

Get Mom a Bouquet of Flowers

Flowers are a hit with mom any time of the year. Send her a surprise bouquet to work or leave them on the kitchen counter so that she finds them when she gets home.
