Still looking for the best gifts to get for Mother’s Day? This year, Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 10, 2015. To help with some inspiration, I created a list that can appeal to any mom. Pick from items just right for your mom’s personality, and don’t forget to get something classic too. Show mom how special she is to you by getting something she’ll truly enjoy. Plus, see below the gift guide for a couple giveaways.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

For moms who read

Looking for a riveting book? How to Walk to School is an ideal gift for a mom who cares about keeping education strong in struggling public schools. Written by Jacqueline Edelberg and Susan Kurland, this book shares a foreword written by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. It explains how one school’s transformation relied on a community effort, while showing that a neighborhood can make a difference in improving their public schools.

Crafty moms can appreciate a book filled with creative ideas. Moms can use the book with their kids to get some extra quality time, or use it alone to have some mom time. Create colorful, fun party supplies in a few simple steps. Written by author Rebecca Emberley, the book is sure to appeal to moms who enjoy working on creative projects.

Show mom how special she is to you with this book written by Amy Newmark and country singer Jo Dee Messina. Filled with 101 stories, the book shows the perspective of why children of all ages love and appreciate their moms. To add a special touch, you could even type your own story of gratitude to give with the book.

For moms who love their closet

Moms who love flowers, but don’t like their short life span, can appreciate the beauty in the simple tee-shirts by Buds and Roses. These hand-painted shirts are more a work of art than another item to toss in the closet. Another neat feature of the item is that you can get a matching shirt for a daughter. Coordinating clothes are an adorable way to show mom who appreciated she is.

Carrying huge diaper bags and heavy purses can be hard on mom’s back. With a shoulder strap bag from the Healthy Back Bag company, mom’s back can finally relax. The bags are designed to help relieve the stress you can get when carrying a bag. Even if mom needs to carry several items around for the kids, these bags can make the load feel lighter than other bags would.

Is mom always on the go? Try the Pocket Poppet travel cardigan, an item that can easily be folded and put into its carrying case for safe keeping. Whether traveling for work or simply going out with friends, having a carrying case for a cardigan can be incredibly useful.

For moms who prefer jewelry

Mother's Day Gift Guide

New mothers can appreciate the feeling of dressed up after carrying a baby for nine months. Buy mom a beautiful, silver necklace. The coolest part is that the classic necklace also doubles as a teether for babies. Moms can replace the bulky, chunky teething necklaces that are a thing of the past. This elegant necklace can go with any outfit, so you don’t have to feel sloppy just because you have a little one.

Bracelets from Lenny and Eva have a hip, bohemian look to complement style-savvy moms. From gift sets personalized just for moms to items to bangles, cuffs and fringe wraps, you can find an item to fit with mom’s fashion.

Create a personalized piece of jewelry to memorialize a meaningful location. With Maps by A.Jaffe, you can choose a location to preserve with a pendant. Start by adding a street address or a landmark, and then use a diamond to pinpoint the exact location that is special to you.

For sentimental moms

Trying to save pictures can be the worst, especially for moms who aren’t tech savvy. Whether you use a cloud-based storage device or an external hard drive, moms unfamiliar with the technology can easily be frustrated. With Picture Keeper, the frustration is a thing of the past. Simply plug the USB device into your computer. The device automatically scans all photo files and saves them, without having to select every single photo.

…and don’t forget the roses

Even if you’re giving a wrapped gift for Mother’s Day, don’t forget the classic gift, roses. With Spring in the Air luxury roses, you can get roses, freshly cut from farms in Colombia, South America. The roses are truly beautiful and they smell delightful. You can use coupon code THERESA for 15% off an order.
