This year, Mother’s Day falls on May 14th. Have you had a chance to think about what you’d like to get mom this year?  I remember, growing up and into my 20’s and 30’s, I always got my mom mugs, shirts, gift cards to her favorite restaurant. One year, a sister and I got her a civil war painting we found in an antique shop. She absolutely loved that painting.  Here is my top 11 gifts Mother’s Day Gift Guide for mom this year:

Butterfly Suncatcher

Alex and Ani “Because I Love You” Bracelet

Sterling Silver Mother/Child Pendant

You can get the Mother with Two Children, Mother with Three Children, and Mother with Four Children pendants as well!

Solar Hanging Lantern

Family Tree Hanging Photo Frames

Bag of Unicorn Farts (Cotton Candy)

What Mom doesn’t love Unicorns?

    You have selected several different gifts from Amazon. Guess it is really true you can find anything you want on Amazon. Amazon is taking over the world.

    Alex and Ani are definitely on my wishlist this year! My girls have the salt lamps in their room and they are awesome! You came up with a great collection!

    Well this one is hard for me since I don’t have a mom, but I can say I would enjoy if my kids just drew me some nice pictures and stopped their petty fighting for a day. I do like that solar lantern though. That’s pretty cool.

    Thank you for providing so many great options! Almost too many because now I’m overwhelmed and don’t know which to pick haha!

  6. David Elliott

    I think the echo dot is cool tech but to be honest it kind of scares me. It just feels like we are revealing to tech so much of what we are.

  7. Katie Kinsley

    Great picks for a mother’s day gift! Thank you for reminding me that this holiday is right around the corner!

  8. Chloe

    I am so excited for mothers day this year because I’m now a mother myself!! So many great gifts that you have chosen 🙂

    Some good gift ideas for mothers day. We just had Mothers Day in the UK a few weeks ago and I usually go for a box of chocolates, a card and a bunch of flowers just to keep her sweet. 🙂 Sometimes a meal if I am not working

    I love all things Alex and Ani. If my mom were still around I’d for sure be able to get her many things on this list! It’s great!

    A great list of gift ideas here, Mothers day is always a difficult one for me, I always like to get something sentimental. I have recently found a great range of jewellery the designs are really unique and you can also get the items personalised for that extra special touch!
