Innovative Gifts Ideas for Mother’s Day



We know that we are mothers’ greatest gift, but let’s be real for a while, there are other great gifts that you can get her on her special day. So even if your mother tells you she wants nothing but to see you happy, know that this just her selfless instinct talking.

Now we know that each mom has a different taste, so in this list, we’ll try as much as possible to offer ideas for gifts that shall appeal to all kind of tastes.

1- Customized Jewelry- Abboud Jewelry 

Each piece is handmade and each design will bring out the details that only a mother would feel so special towards them, so what is better than for a mother to wear her kids’ own designs? It’s very sentimental; you can order a specific design, or choose one of their ready designs.

Another choice would be to buy one of their famous designs with quotes engraved on them, you can have them customize one for you as well; so your mom would always carry a message from you, close to her heart.

2- A Painting

You can have a family portrayed painted, and hanged on her bedroom wall. Again, mothers will love to see everyone included in that portrait.

3- Book Her a Spa Day

Another great gift would be to spoil her with a day of relaxation, so book a spa day for the both of you including a facial, a mani and pedi; because one extra point is that you’ll get to spend quality time together, which is exactly what your mom would want.

4- Foot Massager

Or even better, bring her the spa time at home, so she can enjoy a message at anytime she wants. Because after a long day at work or at home, that’s exactly the kind of spoiling that she deserves.

You can find it on

5- Vintage jewelry 

If your mum is an old-school and an antique lover, then this Instagram page will definitely serve your purpose. They have several one of a kind vintage pieces, that stand out. In each post, you will find the story behind each piece written; which gives their jewelry a deeper meaning.

They have a variety of brooches, earnings, necklaces and more.

6- Prepare Dinner

Giving your mother an off-day is another good idea, so let her sit back and relax while you cook dinner for a change. Just make sure you clean the kitchen afterwards, because a messy kitchen can make the whole gesture backfires.

7- Home Decorations

If your mother is into home decorations and loves to shop from Ikea, then a home makeover is yet another nice idea. You can also make it as a surprise, clean the house and add some touches with the new decorations you will buy.

There are of course many other options, from perfumes, shoes, bags to makeup and clothing. What matters is that whatever you choose, make sure it reflects the personality of your mother. Also, what really counts is for you to spend quality time together, not just on that day, but every single day.
