My mother does SO MUCH to serve and love our family, so each Mother’s Day my sister and I do our best to make her feel special, adored, and appreciated.

It’s easier said than done to come up with a thoughtful gift that Mom will love, isn’t it??

No need to fret! I compiled this list of ideas to give you the perfect Mother’s Day Gift Guide so you can nail it this year. Below you’ll find thoughtful suggestions for every budget, personality type, and style— including some excellent DIY options. I can’t wait to see what you choose!


1. For the Home Décor Lover: A Faith Based Sign Made from Reclaimed Wood— Starting at $27

Did you know that I have a reclaimed wood sign shop? We hand-make and paint farmhouse style signs. This Mother’s Day, order your loved one a sign with their favorite bible verse, a fun quote, or a spring theme. They’ll love the warmth that the rustic, reclaimed wood will bring into their home, and you’ll be a winner for your thoughtful effort to select something handmade.

2. For the Accessorizer: WOW them with a JORD Wood Watch— Starting at $139

My husband and I recently each received one of these completely epic watches and we’re both in love! We were like— A WOOD WATCH? No way! We both get compliments and questions everywhere we go because they are so beautifully unique.

If you want to spoil Mom, this is IT. The packaging is insane and she will be so excited. (Here’s a video of me unpacking mine!)

3. For the Memory-Seeker: Give them an experience!— Starting at $10

Some people are completely over STUFF and I totally get it! But we still want to show them love through gifts on special occasions. These people REALLY appreciate experiences over things. Get Mom tickets to a musical or concert she’d love, a season pass to the art museum, or plan an outing to a special local event! She’ll feel so understood and appreciate your thoughtfulness very much.

Not sure what experience to choose or what’s local? Mashable put together a great list of apps that can help find unique, local suggestions:

6. For the Health Nut: The new WHOLE 30 Cookbook— $16.80

Is your Mom an absolute health nut? She probably doesn’t need another yoga mat or water bottle, but she might not have this cookbook yet! It just came out! Whole 30 is all the rage in health these days with its paleo-focused eating plan that helps identify food allergies and break cravings. It’s a gorgeous recipe book with tons of photos and a helpful Whole 30 overview at the beginning.

7. Coloring Book– $10.90

If there’s one thing Mom’s are really short on, it’s down time to relax and do something for themselves. If you’re budget is tight this Mother’s Day, you can still KILL IT with the perfect gift! Get Mom a coloring book and some coloring pencils (less than $20 total!) and give her an afternoon to herself. Encourage her to take a mug of her favorite tea and curl up with some Netflix and peaceful artistic expression.

For the woman in your love who has an accessory for every outfit, you can’t go wrong with a signature piece from Stella & Dot. If you have a larger budget, spring for the higher end choices. Mom will love it and would probably never spend that much on herself!

11. For the Fashionista: A copy of “The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe”— $16.99

I wouldn’t dare make a fashion choice for those who are much more fashion-savvy than I am, and it always feels like you have to spend a lot more on a gift card to make it feel like a nice gift. So this Mother’s Day, why not surprise her with a book she’ll love? Budget friendly and highly rated for those who enjoy the art of fashion! Want to up the ante for mom? Combine this book with a gift card to her favorite store, too.

13. For the Traveler: Taaluma Tote— $65

Does your Mama have wanderlust? Is your Aunt passionate about social entrepreneurship?? She will LOVE THIS. I first learned about this company on Shark Tank and promptly ordered one for myself. I’m obsessed with this knapsack. I even use it to carry my laptop! This company travels around the world to source the most unique fabric they can find to make their high quality backpacks. The work is done in the US by adults with disabilities, and then 20% of the proceeds goes back to provide microloans to aspiring entrepreneurs in the region they sourced the fabric from. I call this voting with my dollar! You’ve gotta check these guys out.
