I’m not too sure about you but I know that finding gifts for my parents can be hard! trying to figure out if they will actually use and enjoy something can be some what of a struggle. When I ask them what they want they always say they need nothing! Which just makes it even more of a struggle! These Mothers Day Gift Ideas will hopefully spark some creativity and inspiration for you, making the hunt hopefully a whole lot easier!

Mothers Day is the one Day a year meant to celebrate the joy of motherhood through bellying up to the table together! These gift ideas will represent the joy of getting together with one another and sharing your time, and food!

DIY Mothers Day Gifts

These can be a great option to sign along and do as a family together at your mothers day celebration. Or they can be a great option for you to make ahead!

Gift Baskets

Gift baskets can get real tacky real quick unless you are loading it up with some great options! Something to really think about before heading out to the store is what your mom would use the most! If you do a themed basket try and grab her favourite brands that fit in that theme! that way you are getting her things she will use!

Option 1: Spa Day Basket

Some really great ideas might include a gift card to a local spa for a treatment she would love! A shared treatment with family (maybe all the girls in the family go to get their nails done? or Get facials?)!

Another option might include an at home kit! I love the nail art that are stickers! They are super easy to put on and look great! You could give one of those nail dip kits or jell nail packages a try!

A simple idea is to buy the facial and body care products she uses on the regular! Help her stock up! It is a great practical gift that you know will get used!

You could make this calming linen spray to add to the basket!

Option 2: Food Basket

I mean who doesn’t love some great food!

You could bake some favourite desserts! Put in some fresh ones and enough to freeze for later! What a sweet treat that would be!

You could make a basket full of freezer meals! She would be able to put them in the freezer and pull them out for later! I mean I would love that! How awesome would that be?!

You could create a basket full of cookbooks that everyone in the family loves! That way she can try out all the recipes everyone loves!

You could bake fresh bread. Make some jam, and cream some butter to stick in a basket! Throw in a new tea towel and a bread knife and bam complete!

Im not sure why but I think I would personally live a basket full of different quiches! You could make a few different kinds that are freezable and star them with your mom!

Home-made Sauces would be another great option! All of your families favourite sauces in to sweet little jars with instructions on how to use them would be so fun!

This might be a fun snack or recipe to share!

Option 3: Grandkid Homemade gifts

If you have kids and this gift is for your mom getting your kids to make the gift is such a fun way to spread the love!

You could have them make cards, tissue paper flowers, or life sized hugs!

Put it al into a pretty basket or nicely decorated envelop!

Another option is to take some school work/art projects that you want to share with others and give them away!

This might be a fun craft to make with the kids!

Option 4: Drink Basket

A great way to stock your mom up on drinks that she loves is filling a basket full of the ingredients as a gift!

This does’t just have to be tea or coffee. It could be the ingredients to make a hard lemonade or her favourite latte!

You could even give her a cookbook on all different drink options for the summer or maybe for the winter!

Here is a delicious Hot Chocolate recipe to throw in the basket!

Option 5: Outing Basket

What a fun way to say I love you! Gift your mom a basket full of outings that she would enjoy with herself, friends, and family!

You could do a gift card to her favourite coffee shop! A gift card to the local movie theatre! A handmade scavenger hunt around the city! Local hike maps! Local lookout spot suggestions! You could even toss in some snacks or drinks to make the day even funner!

Another idea to add to this might be suggesting a road trip to a town farther away! maybe plan out all the activities and provide some cash to help cover the costs! It could be a quick day trip into another town, or even a weekend getaway!

You could even leave it all as a surprise! As a family plan a day out in town! Everyone meet up in the morning and surprise your mom with the activities!

Here is a list of some family friendly outing ideas!
