The Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas (+Giveaway!)

If you’re looking for the best Mother’s Day gift ideas, plus you want to enter a giveaway for a gift yourself (or a mom in your life), you’ve come to the right place. Welcome!



This year I’m celebrating Mother’s Day with this little sweetie:

Sweet Mother's Day Gift

And I’ve got to admit, my favorite gifts are the ones you can’t buy: the squeals of laughter as we towel off after bath time, the gleam in her eye when she’s brewing mischief, the sprint to give me a hug when I walk in the door. Those are the best Mother’s Day gifts, amen?

And if I could give every single mom I know one gift, it would be this set of encouraging verses Flaviu made to lift us up when we’re feeling down and to give us that extra oomph to keep going when we’re ready to throw in the kitchen towel. If you haven’t gotten yours yet, you’ll definitely want to get a set for you and one for a friend.


But maybe this isn’t the kind of thing your mom-friend would appreciate. I get that, and I’m always looking for meaningful gift ideas for others, so I put together a list of gifts I wouldn’t mind receiving myself.

Perhaps you’ll find inspiration here too.
