Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is coming up and it’s a tradition to get your mother gifts on this day. However, it can be a hard and tricky decision about what to get her. The goal is to get her a gift she’ll love that also shows how thankful you are for her. We all know being a mother isn’t the easiest job in the world, no matter how old the kids get! Sunday, May 13, is the day to remind her that she is appreciated for what she does. Also, it’s not necessary to break the bank. The following gifts are affordable with a little saving and/or with all the siblings pitching in.

This is the “One Line A Day: A Five-Year Memory Book,” which is available on sites like

Say that mom likes to write and likes to keep track of her days. There is a book called One Line A Day: A Five-Year Memory Book that costs eleven dollars. Mom can write down all of the memories she makes in this fun book. Someday, she and her family can look back at all the memories- the good, the bad, and the ugly- that made up the last five years, 

To stick with the writing theme, family members could translate loving sentiments into a poem or a letter for mom and then decorate it with things like stickers or glitter glue.  This is a sentimental gift with a lot of heart and low cost. 

For thirteen dollars on, there are stackable, stamped name rings. The rings come in a variety of metals, including brass, bronze, copper, and sterling silver. The options allow for tons of different ring combinations! This is a fashionable way to show off the names of the children she loves so much.

Since being a mom is a tough job, maybe consider getting her a “Lush” gift set.

If the forecast suggests that the weather on Mother’s Day is supposed to be nice, a nice option could be to plan a picnic. Buy items from the grocery store, such as deli foods and fruits, and pack a picnic basket. Enjoy it with the family in the park or a field and spend some quality time with Mom! The cost varies depending on how much the food costs. If weather does not permit, making her brunch or breakfast in bed might be a nice and relaxing treat.

This is the African violet flower.

Then there is the old stand-by– a beautiful plant! A recommendation is the African Violet, which is a very pretty purple flower. It’s said that a purple violet symbolizes thoughts that are loving. This plant has a long life span. Another good choice is the Petite Purple Speckled Orchid, which represents royalty, admiration, respect, and dignity. Of course, there are other very pretty flowers and plants to choose from. There are many places to get plants such as Amazon’s online plant store or your local flower shop.

If all else fails, spend a nice day with Mom. Make her feel special and lucky to have such wonderful children who appreciate her. You can take her shopping and out for a nice lunch, and bonus points if the kids pay for it –or at least most of it!
