Mothers Day Gift Reviews: Including Something Original This Year

We all know that shopping for Mothers Day can be tough. I have two kids, and I know how hectic a mother’s schedule is with balancing meals, school, and everything else. Special events, like Mothers Day, can slip through the cracks with so many other priorities demanding our attention. It’s tough for me at least, and when May 8th rolls around this year, you may want to show your mother how much she means to you with a special gift that shows you’ve been thinking about her.

Here are some gift ideas for mom that will really wow her and show how much you appreciate all she’s done. Also, they can be used as ideas you can hint to your husband or kids for yourself!!!

Here’s something I stumbled across while browsing online and thought it was worth mentioning. This is a gift that combines the intimate touch of a homemade craft and elegance of body soaps – products crafted by Shenandoah Soaps. Kelly Berger started this business based out of Saint Louis. Handmade soaps are her specialty item, but the site also offers a wide range of other gift ideas. Through her blog or shop on, you can browse through a variety of gifts, such as hand crafted quilts, crib blankets for the baby, and beautiful hand-made scarves. Just viewing these products online will show you that they aren’t cheaply made. Every item is crafted with care and skill and any of these gifts will add that special personal touch that you’re looking for this year.

Jewelry is always a personal favorite of mine, but making the right choice is always tough, especially when you consider personal style. I know that my taste isn’t much like my mother’s, and I usually go in a different direction for fear of getting her something that she’s going to hate. It’s best to go with something cute, classy, and neutral that is a sure bet. Initial necklaces or rings are a great choice for any mother or grandmother to add a personalized touch. Order a necklace with their grandchildren initials or their own. You can pick from a variety of customizable letters, gems, and chains from a selection of metals and colors. It’s an elegant choice that she’s bound to love and cherish.

If your mother is anything like mine, she loves jewelry, but has it all sitting in a mixed up drawer. Get your mother a vintage jewelry box engraved with a special note or message. You can also have a picture of the family or just the grandkids put inside. She’ll have a sweet reminder every time opens it. Choose from many different shapes, sizes, and designs to meet the pickiest of mothers.

You can’t go wrong with any of these gift ideas. Browse through some of these websites and others, so when May 8th comes around you’re not caught unprepared. We don’t always tell our mothers how much they mean to us because, let’s face it, we get really busy. It’s not because we don’t care. Do something original and special this year. Who knows, you might even find something for yourself 🙂

These are not my words, thanks!
