3 Unique and Thoughtful Mother's Day Gifts
Mother's Day is a celebration that I look forward to each year. It seems fitting that we get a whole day dedicated to honor all those diaper changes, lunches packed, and tears wiped. Are you looking for a unique Mother's Day gift idea? Here's my round-up of one-of-a-kind gifts that will be sure to please mom.
Pairing something sparkly with something meaningful is a total win in my book. On my first Mother's Day, my husband gave me a gold necklace engraved with my son's name. I absolutely love wearing this necklace because when I'm away from my son I feel as though I have a little piece of him with me.
You can personalize a necklace, earrings, or bracelet. You can include names of children, a significant date like their birthday, or include their birthstone as part of the jewelry.
Gifting Breakfast in Bed
My son loves to help in the kitchen, so naturally breakfast in bed is a fun way to involve him on Mother's Day. A great idea to mix up this classic tradition is to serve breakfast on or in something new! You could serve her food on a beautiful tray or use a new tumbler or coffee mug for her beverage. If she's a lover of flowers, pick up a ceramic vase to showcase them.
Birth Story Time Capsule
Maybe you're hoping to give a sentimental gift this year. You can put together a time capsule for your mom and incorporate details from your child(rens) birth. For example, I listened to a Coldplay CD while in the labor with my son. Whenever I hear those songs, I'm taken right back to that special day.
You can put together a basket with new and old items to help recreate that day.
- Your child's baby book
- A favorite baby outfit that has significance
- Cozy new loungewear
- A candle and tea
- What I love about mom book – you can have your children share what they love most about mom and make it into a little book. Here are additional homemade gift ideas.
If you're really looking for a win, include this 3D "heart art." You can add any song lyrics to be framed as well as a few personal messages. This is such a sweet piece of artwork that she can enjoy for years to come.
