#1 The gift she needs and will use


The easiest way to purchase the perfect gift for mom is to ask her what she wants. Most moms will think of a practical gift they can use.

I love giving mom's cookware or bake ware. It is a great gift they can use every day and on special occasions.

I own this Paula Dean cookware set. It is the one I plan to buy for my mother. It is easy to clean, durable and a great value. It is also available in black and yellow.

She Might Like Something Practical

Does your mother already have a great cookware set? Here are a few more gift ideas for moms that are simple and practical.

This is What I Really Want

#2 The gift she really wants but won't buy herself


One of the best gift ideas for mom is to buy her something she really wants. I am a very thrifty mom but I have a weakness for designer handbags. I won't spend the money to purchase one for myself but I would love to receive one as a gift. Dooney & Bourke handbags are some of the best designer purses on the market. They are made of the best quality and have excellent resale value. Each purse comes with a certificate and serial number of authenticity. This black handbag is my favorite because it goes with just about anything in my closet but Dooney & Bourke purses come in all shapes and sizes.

#3 A gift that lets your mom know how much she means to you.


My mother is a wonderful woman. Above all else, she is a mother that prays. She prayed for me through the turbulent teenage years. Somehow she knew I would find my way through the darkness. She prayed for me when I left home for the Army. The power of her prayers spanned oceans and protected me in foreign countries. She continued to pray for me through my seven year struggle to conceive a child. She was certain her grandbabies would find their way through the web of infertility. Her delicate hands lifted my babies in prayer when they were born nine weeks premature. Her prayers have reached the heavens more times than I can count. She has been my voice when I have lost my faith. She continues to pray for me as I journey through motherhood.

The best gift I can give my mother is to become a mother that prays.

I encourage you to take a moment to think about the mom in your life. What does your wife mean to your children? What has your mom done for you? Do you see that special connection between a mother and a son when your sister looks at your nephew?

Choose a special gift that reminds you of who that woman is as mother.

Personalized Gifts For Mom

# 4 A Personalized Gift


Does your mom have stacks of new towels, pans, coffee pots and unopened Christmas gifts in her closet? Try getting her a personalized gift. These little keepsake boxes are the perfect size for homemade bath soaps or cookies. She won't be able to resist a picture of her new grandbaby on the front. All of these gifts can be personalized with special saying, scriptures, pictures and designs.

New Moms

# 5 A gift that will remind her that she is more than a mother. She is still a beautiful independent women.


I remember when I first became a mother. I was exhausted, overwhelmed and cranky! The last thing I wanted was for someone to give me new clothes, house decorations or bubble bath. Those types of gifts reminded me how desperately I needed to clean my house and how I needed to work on losing the baby weight.

I love this mother's birthstone jewelry because they can make a new mom feel pretty again. They are the perfect size to wear at home. She can show off that she is a new mom with the precious birthstone of her little one nestled in a beautiful ring or necklace.

# 6 A present that will remind her of a newborn baby.


Pink roses have always been my favorite flower. They were the flowers in my wedding bouquet and the flowers my husband always gives me for our anniversary.

Fresh flowers have a way of taking me back to the day I gave birth to my beautiful daughters. They are tiny, pink and delicate just like my girls on the first day I held them.

# 7 Choose a gift that she can enjoy every day.


My mother enjoys a clean house. She will spend an entire Saturday doing laundry, vacuuming and dusting. She loves to sit down at the end of the day and kick her feet up with a nice bowl of popcorn and an ice cold Coke. I love to buy her candles because I know she will light them in her nice clean home while she is relaxing in front of the TV.

Moms Of Multiples

# 8 Give her the gift of time


I can tell you from experience that the best gift for a mother of multiples is the gift of time. I would love an extra set of hands and eyes to help out with my children. I have twin toddlers and an infant. People often ask if I would like some help but the polite response is always "no we are fine". I suggest being more specific when offering to help out a mother of multiples.

Print out a certificate for a night of babysitting. It's okay if you don't feel comfortable watching twins or triplets alone! Offer to watch the kids so she can take a bubble bath, read a book or even get some much needed housework done.

I can't tell you how many nights my husband and I ate hotdogs or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when our girls were babies. I would have appreciated a casserole or even help with the dishes.

Of course don't forget something to make her smile!

# 9 Get her an IPad! Everyone wants one! What more can I say?


I cannot believe how far we have come with computers. The new Apple IPad is perfect for the working mom, stay at home mom and multitasking mom. I love it because I can bring up recipes in the kitchen, check my emails while I'm feeding the baby and entertain the twins when we are out running errands.

      My mother would positively love that very first handbag in this lens (the Dooney & Bourke Medium Leather Pocket Sac). She can't get enough of purses and handbags!

      I think personalized gifts, or those that she wouldn't buy for herself, are especially nice.
