Gifting, especially on Mother’s Day, should be a family custom you strive to pass along to future generations. Gifts make the ladies in your life feel special, cherished and appreciated. Motherhood, while beautiful, is not without its difficulties. As a mother, you may easily feel overwhelmed and underappreciated.
Therefore, this mother’s day, do not miss the opportunity to express gratitude and appreciation to your beloved mother figures with these unique and cherished gifts:
1. Pure silk pillowcase and sleep mask
Motherhood is a full-time job, and what better way for a mother to unwind after a long day than with a pure silk pillowcase and sleep mask? Silk is a sturdy, long-lasting fabric with a classy appearance. When you sleep on a silk pillow, the fabric is kind on your skin and preserves skin moisture, even lessening fine lines over time. Silk pillows also preserve and maintain healthy hair by minimizing tangles and breakage when sleeping. A sleep mask can promote better sleep by blocking out light that can keep you awake, especially if you work off shifts. You can purchase a set including a pure silk pillowcase and matching sleep mask for an average of $24.99 USD on Amazon.
2. Apple Watch Series 7 smartwatch
This Apple Watch series is a smartwatch with two different sizes available, multiple colors, water resistance, quick charging, and LTE and GPS-only functionality. This watch is an excellent gift choice for busy moms who are mothers who multitask–driving from errands to school pick ups—and require meticulous planning to stay on top of things. A smartwatch will not only be extremely useful for helping mom manage her time; Apple watches also come in a variety of colors and designs that are quite stylish. Pick up a smartwatch for mom at any Apple store for around $400 USD.
3. Custom pet portrait
A custom pet portrait is an excellent Mother’s Day present, particularly if mom is a lover of animals. A pet portrait can be displayed proudly in any room of the house, including the living room or bedroom, to ensure a smile from mom wherever she enters the room. Most importantly, a pet portrait can be a memorial of a cherished family pet, and a way to keep cherished memories of friendship, love, and loyalty alive in your household. A personalized pet portrait costs roughly $200 USD, and can be ordered from a variety of online portraitists, such as Paint Your Life, Purr & Mutt, or via a variety of Etsy.com sellers.
4. Flower Delivery Subscription
Flowers instantly improve your mood. In fact, a study conducted by Rutgers researchers, at the State University of New Jersey, found that looking at flowers creates intimate connections between the giver and receiver, while also lowering feelings of depression and anxiety. But why give mom flowers only once a year when you can give the gift of joyous blooms monthly? A flower delivery subscription is a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift that brings a new bouquet of blooms to Mom’s front door every month. Before ordering a flower delivery service for the mother in your life, make sure you know what kind of flowers they prefer and get those instead, as some mothers are allergic to certain flowers. Look to online subscription services like Petal Republic, BloomsyBox, 1800Flowers.com, and UrbanStems, which feature a different variety of seasonal flowers upon each delivery, as well as a unique and complementary vase with most monthly bouquets. Prices start at $40 USD per month, but package price varies.
5. Engraved personalized jewelry
Engraving a piece of jewelry with a personal message makes any gift extra special, especially for Mother’s Day. Personalizing jewelry transforms it from a simple accessory to a sentimental statement item that mom will wear for years to come. Bracelets, necklaces and rings can be personalized with mom’s name, family initials, or even birthday gemstones in various metals and sizes. This is a gift mom will not only wear with her whole heart, but also pass down to future generations in your family. Look to local jewelers, Etsy.com, and Blue Nile, and Ross Simons for prices on customized jewelry for Mother’s Day.
