Mother’s day will be here before you know it. Why not plan in advance rather than scrambling at the last minute? I have laid out a few ideas to help you with your shopping in this Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
Give your mom some fun basics like the Mom Necklace from this amazing Etsy seller. You can write a message that will be written exactly as is on the necklace. If your handwriting is atrocious like mine, you can stamp your message in too.
These stackable rings are also a fun option for Moms. I have been dying for a quality set of stackable rings.
5. Beauty Products
Bliss Spa products smell great and really work! Kohl’s recently started selling them and I am beyond excited! I tried them out at the local Bliss Spa at the W Hotel and was super impressed by the quality. I have been using the bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask for the last few weeks and noticed an improvement in my skin! The bliss Anti-Aging Moisture Cream and bliss Travel-Sized Gift Set are both great gift options.
6. Spa Day
My mom took me on an amazing spa day for my bday and I think it would be a great mother’s day gift. We started the day at the nail salon getting gel manicures, then we got massages. After that, we went back to the nail salon for pedicures. Lastly, we got our hair done at a local blow dry bar. Since we were all dolled up, we went out to dinner. Doesn’t that day sound amazing? I want to do it for every big holiday from now on! You’ll need to start making appointments now if you want to do this on or near mother’s day. You might want to add in brunch for fun.
Now that I have shared my best mother’s day gift ideas, what is the best Mother’s Day gift you received or gave?

I gave the best. I entered my mom in a local TV Mothers Day sweepstakes. My mail in letter took the hearts of several other entries. They did a 15 minute tv show on our family and my mom and it aired with Ken Griffy Jr and his mom on the other half of the show. It ran for years. My mom was so embarrassed as we surprised her with the camera crew when she walked through the door at home. All us kids and our kids were there. She won a lot of very nice prizes. Her work got wind of it and decided to nominate her for “Mother of The Year” and gave her the day off with huge bouquet of flowers, chocolates and gift certificate. There were about 300 employee’s cheering her on. My mom was so embarrassed….but after all she deserved it raised us 5 kids to all turn out pretty good! I don’t think I could ever top that! Memories!
