Heartfelt Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Do you give (or receive, or both) gifts on Mother’s Day? We don’t tend to make a big fuss on this holiday, but I do love to give little, thoughtful items to my mom. If you are looking for some fresh ideas, have a look at this gift guide for Mother’s Day.

Many of us, myself included, will not be able to be with our mothers – or children – this year. If that’s your situation, know that everything on this list can all be sent through the mail – some directly from the retailer.

It’s absolutely not the same as spending a leisurely day with Mom or gifting her in person! But, a well-intentioned and meaningful gift can make the miles seem less far apart.

Gift Guide for Mother’s Day

These are some of my personal gifting favorites that are easily sent by mail. Distance won’t keep you apart for too much longer.

What I Love About Mom Fill-in-the-Blanks Gift Journal

I gave this exact book to my mother a few years ago, thinking it was just a cute little gift – little did I know, my mother would read it over and over, and laugh and cry each time she found something new! Why?

Because this book provides questions and fill-in-the-blank sentences all about Mom – and you provide the answers!

Be thoughtful in your responses, and this may become one of Mom’s most treasured gifts ever.

CauseBox Subscription Gift Box

Causebox has two goals: to build a community of women who support women, and to help you discover products that are ethical and sustainable. They do this by sending their subscribers a curated box of socially-conscious products each month.


And let me tell you – each item is absolutely wonderful, from soft blankets to handcrafted jewelry to small-batch lotions, and more.

Each box is generally valued at 4-5 times the price, and subscriptions are customizable, so it’s not just a sustainable choice, it’s a smart one, too!

Is Mom spending a lot of time inside her home?

Enhance the sights and scents with this gorgeous trio of hand-poured candles.

Ritual + Fancy hand-poured candles are made in small batches with 100% soy wax, natural cotton/wood wicks, dried flowers, and pure essential oils.

Home Smile Decorative Trinket Dish

My mother wears the same jewelry pieces every day and drops them on her dresser each night. No more lost earrings – I’ll be sending her this darling – and practical – dish this year.

This is absolutely the sweetest little dish your mother will ever use. If not for jewelry – then bath products, glasses, soaps – so many possibilities!

Plow & Hearth

And if you don’t want this particular sentiment, there are several dozen others to choose from – for moms, wives, sisters, friends, and more.

Available from Amazon. See it HERE.

Nisolo Clara Cross-Body Purse in Natural Vachetta

With its structured, clean lines and natural vachetta leather, the Clara Crossbody purse is elegant and understated, yet infinitely practical.

All Nisolo artisan makers receive beyond fair trade wages, healthcare, and a healthy working environment and the leather is responsibly sourced from tanneries committed to the ethical treatment of animals and the use of eco-friendly waste disposal systems.

Available from Made Trade. See it HERE.

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Cardi

This gorgeous cardigan is a cult favorite for a reason!

It is quite possibly the softest item of clothing you will ever wear. And that means it’s a perfect gift for moms who will still be sheltering in place for a while.

There is nothing better to take the chill out of the air – outdoors if it’s still cool where you are, or indoors with the air conditioning running this summer.

Available from Amazon. See it HERE.

The California Wine Club Membership

This is the gift for the wine-loving Momma.

Five different membership levels are available and all offer the best wines from small, artisan wineries all over California. Often, batches are too small to be distributed outside of the local area, so you will never see them in your local retailer.

Hand-selected and top quality.

  1. Lori, these are all great and do-able ideas. I loved the Stella and Dot necklace and the what I love about mom journal. Also, the subscription box sounds like something my mom would absolutely love. Thank you for sharing these ideas. I hope you have a great Mother’s Day (:

    Much love always,

    1. Thank you so, so much Gabby! I am really glad you liked these suggestions! I know when I gave my mother the journal, she cried (with joy) and said it was her favorite gift ever. Thanks for the good wishes, and Happy Mothers Day!

  2. I love the wind chime! It’s so pretty. For me, I love getting bath products and relaxation 🙂 My oldest is 5 and she is excited to make me breakfast LOL. She’s wanted it to be mother’s day for like 2 months.

    1. The wind chime seems to be everyone’s favorite – including mine! It really is beautiful, and would look good anywhere! I am so excited that your daughter is making you breakfast! When mine was young, that was always a favorite for both of us. Enjoy, I know you will!

  3. These are awesome ideas! The wind chime is beautiful. And the trinket dish is great because every time she looks at it, she is reminded that you love her. Love your post!

    1. Hi Jenn – I’m so glad you liked these suggestions! Yes, the wind chime is my personal favorite – not only is it beautiful, but it’s made fair trade and from recycled materials! Thanks for reading!

    1. Thank you, Georgianne! I thought it was so pretty, but not super-cutesy like some charms can be. I appreciate you taking the time to read the post!
