From new moms to a mom with many children and (even!) grandchildren, from your wife to your mother, we’ve got your Mother’s Day gifts list completely covered.
Not sure what to get for Mother’s Day that doesn’t say “last-minute” or worse, “last year’s”? Face it, we have all received variations of the same present that get stashed in a forgotten drawer together so that they can unite with their unfortunate siblings. Frames and cups anyone?
Fortunately, you can never go wrong with a meaningful, personal gift that mothers will treasure for how much it means to her. From personalized Mother necklaces and rings bearing children’s names or drawing, to gifts for mom that you can do yourself, here are some ideas for mother’s day gifts that will show your special woman exactly how much you love and care for her.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS FROM AN TEEN/ADULT DAUGHTER
Nothing says I love you more than a gift that reflects the personal bond between you and your mom. Deep down she wants to think of you as her little girl, no matter what age you are, so make sure to let her know you remember all the precious memories you’ve shared together!

Write down a phrase of love for your mom, or get the handwriting of someone special to her engraved on this beautiful handwriting bracelet:
I remember reading a post written by the husband of a mom with a ten-month-old, about how his wife suddenly became very depressed after Mother’s Day. When he finally got her to talk about the reason, she burst into tears and said it was because her daughter didn’t even get her anything for Mother’s Day when her life was completely devoted to her baby. Not surprisingly, the husband was bewildered as after all, her kid was only ten months old!
The story was both sad and hilarious, but boy did we mommies sympathize with how she felt. How you feel like your life is taken away by an impossible-to-please baby who can’t even let us know that they love and appreciate us yet. *mommies hugs*
These gifts from baby to mom are designed to help the little one cheat a little in expressing their love, even when they don’t have enough words to express how they feel:
