Mother’s Day is coming up this month and it’s time to start thinking about gifts. If you’re like us and tired of giving the cliché Mother’s Day gifts year after year, check out our guide for some fresh takes on the usual ones.
1. Then | Flowers
Now | Succulents
Flowers are pretty but they don’t last long. Succulents are a great gift because they will add a pop of green to your mom’s space with minimal effort of upkeep.
2. Then | Fragrances
Now | Fragrance subscription
Instead of trying to guess which scent your mom might like, buy her a subscription to Scentbird, a fragrance subscription service. She will be able to test out scents every month until she finds her favorite.
3. Then | Cookware
Now | Cooking class
Sign up for a cooking class for both of you to take together. She’ll love learning new techniques in the kitchen and enjoy the quality time spent with you even more.
4. Then | Candles
If your mom loves candles then she’ll definitely love unwinding with an essential oil diffuser. Lemon, peppermint and lavender are great oils to start with.
5. Then | Wine
Now | Wine bottle insulator
Your mom’s wine bottles will be kept cold for hours with this Vinglace wine bottle insulator. Perfect for barbecues, music in the park and other fun summer activities.
6. Then | Slippers
Now | Silk pillowcase
If you’re looking to up your mom’s relaxation game, gift her a luxurious silk pillowcase. Besides feeling great, they prevent wrinkles and are good for hair and skin.
7. Then | Coffee mug
Now | Yeti insulated mug
Take your mom’s coffee game up a notch with this insulated mug by Yeti. It’s double insulated walls will keep her cold drinks cold and her hot drinks hot for hours.
8. Then | Homemade crafts
Now | Personalized book
Make sure you’re tissue-ready after you gift this personalized book to your mom. Fill in the blanks to tell your mom how much she means to you.
9. Then | Robe
Now | Weighted blanket
How many robes can a mom really need? Buy something similar that will be cozy and comforting – a weighted blanket.
10. Then | Magazine subscription
Now | Audible subscription
If your mom enjoys books but has a hard time finding the time to read, look into an audible subscription. She’ll be able to listen to all types of books for only $15/month.
11. Then | Gallery wrapped print
The mom in your life will love the special personalized touch to this piece of art.
12. Then | Jewelry
Now | Wireless headphones
Jewelry is great but wireless headphones are way more useful. Gift her with a pair of earbuds or headphones to use for listening to music, exercising, traveling and more.
