Mother’s Day is a month away and it’s time to start thinking about those perfect gifts. You may want to start by checking out some of the gifts I featured in my post, 3 Creative & Fun Ideas For The Stumped Gift Giver. You already know that Mother’s Day is the one holiday you don’t want to forget (okay, well maybe you should remember birthdays and anniversaries too, if you really want to stay out of trouble). Anyway, if Mother’s Day gift ideas have you stumped, check out some of these gift ideas that any mom would love…
Yes, I know Shutterfly seems like such an easy pick but it’s SOOOO GOOD!!! Now, this is great for all moms but really works best when there are grandchildren in the picture (literally!). I know my mom wouldn’t mind some cute pictures of me and my sister but she just can’t get enough of her two perfect granddaughters! Practically every gift I’ve given her since I had children has been some kind of Shutterfly gift with their pictures and there are so many different items to choose from that this could go on for years!
These are some of my personal favorites:
How could you ever go wrong giving mom a book filled with the faces of her adorable grandchildren? These Personalized Photo Books are so easy that if you don’t have the time to customize it yourself, Shutterfly will do it for you. They make the book and then you can make any necessary changes at the end. I also love the Personalized Mugs so much that I’ve bought several for myself, too. There are so many different ways to personalize them and the quality is always great. Learn from my mistakes…I tried to save a few bucks by ordering from another company once and let’s just say that sometimes you get what you pay for. You can also choose to have them filled with candy as well because let’s face it, chocolate goes great with a morning coffee!
You can add these Personalized Coasters to the list of things I’ve bought my mom from Shutterfly. I took pictures of my oldest in her different princess dresses (she pretty much has every princess dress known to man) and picked my four favorite. The coasters turned out so cute that they are now on display at my mom’s house like works of art (and don’t you dare try to put a drink on them). I hadn’t seen these Collage Frames before but I really like the style so I might have to add one to the list too (and another one for me).
There are so many other things that Shutterfly makes as well. You can get pillows, quilts, puzzles, playing cards, iPhone cases and more. You’ll definitely want to subscribe to their mailing list because they are always sending out coupons and even freebies. I’ve gotten free personalized mousepads, luggage tags, address labels, and refrigerator magnets to name a few.
One of the best gifts I received after I had my second child was a spa gift card. It took me awhile to find the time to use it but it was definitely worth waiting for!!! This is a perfect gift for any mom regardless of whether they have small children or if their children have all flown the coop. If you’re not sure about which spa she’d like to visit, you can buy a gift card from Spa Finder and it is good at thousands of different spas. This is what I had been given and I had no problem finding a spa near me (however, if you’re buying for someone that lives in a smaller town, you may want to check first, just to be sure).
Personalized Robe & Slippers from Personalization Mall
I’m not sure what happened but this post is turning out to be all about what I want for Mother’s Day!!! I better stop after this or the next suggestion will be a bottle of red wine! Anyway, I found this pretty Personalized Robe at Personalization Mall and decided that I must have it! I think it would be the perfect gift for any mother…especially after a long day of, well, being a mother. While you’re at it, you might as well throw in the slippers, too!
