Whenever I ask my mother what should I get her for a birthday or any other special occasion, she replies that she doesn’t need or want anything. I am certain that you face a similar situation.
So, what do you do about it?
Last year on mother’s day, I wanted to surprise my mother with something special and useful. But, I was in the dilemma of finding that perfect mother’s day gift. What I did was I observed her for a few days and made a list of things that can make her work easier or make her feel happy and special.

1. Foot Massager: for any type of mom
I want to start my list with one of the best mother’s day gift ideas for any mom. A foot massager with the latest features will help your mom get a relaxing time. Whether she is tired of all the messy work of the home or from a stressful day at the office, she is going to smile thinking of you while dipping her foot in the massager. Moreover, you can buy it conveniently from an online store.
2. Homemade card: extra effort to show your love
If you don’t have a budget for a massager, I have another special idea for you. How about a mother’s day card? But, it shouldn’t be an ordinary one, you need to put a little extra effort and make it on your own. This way, you can implicitly tell your mom how special she is for you. Try thanking her for being helpful, caring and always there for you. Moreover, if you have some money to spare, get a special mother’s day flowers and chocolates along with the card.
3. Homemade dessert: Bake a treat for her
My mom has a sweet tooth but she doesn’t get much time to bake. Thought not being great at baking, I tried to bake a cake for her as one of the mother’s day gifts I have ever given. I still remember her happy face and the fun fact is she didn’t allow my father and brother to even taste it. Coming back on track, if your mom is like this, you can bake cookies, cake, fudge or cupcake (whatever you feel comfortable baking) to present her a special treat.
4. Bring back her old memories
If you want to gift your mom something unusual on mother’s day, I have an amazing idea. Think of a special item or memory of your mother’s childhood that can make her feel nostalgic. For instance, if your mother used to do gardening in her childhood, gift her some of her favorite plants. Besides, you can also make a photo album or scrapbook which consists of her childhood photos and memories.
5. Buy clothes or jewelry: make her feel beautiful
Are you looking for a mother’s day gift which can make her feel elegant and beautiful? If yes, then what’s better than women jewelry? You can buy a pair of earrings, a pendant or a bracelet. Or you can also go with women clothes. These are ideal mother’s day gifting ideas if you are too busy or live away from your mom. You can buy them online and send the parcel directly to her.
6. Gift her your time
While I was making the list, I realized that she and I hardly spend any time without my brother or father being around us. So, in my suggestion giving your quality time and taking your mom for a movie, shopping or restaurant is a great mother’s day gift idea. You can also plan a combination of events like going for a movie and then to her favorite restaurant. This will also give her time off from the daily routine.
I hope you can relate at least a few of the aforementioned mother’s day gifts. Moreover, whether you live with your mom or not, you can certainly make that extra effort to make her feel special on mother’s day. So, what are you waiting for? Start preparing for the special moment now!
