The best Mother’s Day gifts bless and lift your Mothers heart, and show gratitude for the sacrifices and love she has given you. BUT… They don’t need to cost a penny!
The best Mother’s Day gifts are heartfelt expressions of love, admiration and gratitude for all she has done for us.
A thoughtfully written card will melt your Mothers heart more than the most expensive gift! If you can think of one thing (or more) your mother did that you sincerely appreciated, remind her of the situation and how she blessed your life! A handwritten card or letter will make your mother feel recognized for her hard work, and love.
One of the sweetest cards I’ve ever received was actually a short note from my teenage son. He talked about a disappointing experience he had and how something I did made all the difference. I will cherish that forever!
If you really want to go all the way, pair your loving card with a beautiful gift for her! Meaningful Mothers days gifts include things that remind her of your relationship and love! For example:
The Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas:
Flowers are a classic, and universal, way to brighten your mothers heart and home! No matter what kind of mother you have, a beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to your mothers door are always a delightful expression of love!
For the Fun Friendly Mother…
Fun and Friendly mothers are sometimes their kids best friends. They like to play and make memories with their family.
If you’re mother is one of your best friends, give her a way to remember that!
A photo album or framed picture of the two of you together, or beautifully framed photos of her with her grandkids. Photos bring so much back to our remembrance, they help us remember the love we have for eachother and the memories we’ve made.
A few other gift ideas for Fun Friendly Mothers include: Mother daughter trips, long phone calls, and personalized quilts or blankets like these ones!
For the Loving Mother…
Loving mothers are mama bears and are passionate advocates for their children!
A homemade handwritten card with a custom inscribed bracelet or necklace, like these ones, telling her you love her.
Right before my son left the country for a couple years, he gave me a bracelet that simple said, “Remember, I love you Mom”. That little gift made me cry, and I wore it with him on my mind and in my heart till he came home.
Make your mother’s day gift customized for her in your own unique way!
For the Nurturing Mother...
Nurturing mothers really helped us develop physically, mentally and spiritually… They are master teachers and soul cultivators!
Living gifts keep giving day after day and year after year. A living flower or tree to plant in her yard, or keep in her home, will remind your mother that you love her everyday!
IF YOUR MOTHER LOVES PLANTS, consider giving her a handwritten card with a beautiful tree or flower bush, like this butterfly bush, will brighten her home and lift her spirit! A nice gardening hand tool set is a usable and intentional addition that she’d love with such a gift!
Other nurturing gifts include things that will help her continue develop mentally, physically and spiritually!
For the Comforting Mother…
Comforting mothers rocked us, hugged us, snuggled us! Their love language (or ours) is likely physical touch.
Give your mother the gift of comfort with a hand written card or letter! The weighted blankets, like this one, feel like a nice full body hug! Weighted blankets also help alleviate anxiety and stress… Like a good long hug!
Other comforting gifts include: Pajamas, this comfy throw blanket, slippers, pillows, and comfort foods, for example.
A Mother’s Love
A mother’s love is shown in several ways according to her (or your) love language. When we were babies our mothers nourished us with the food and water we needed to grow, and nurtured us with love to help us develop.
Mothers comforted us when we got hurt, sick, and when we were going to sleep. Mamas play, tickle, and delight in little giggles. They taught us how to use a spoon, and the essentials of life.
As children and teenagers our mothers continued to nourish, nurture, comfort, entertain, teach and protect us in their own way.
As adults mothers step back letting us take the reins of life on our own, but they’re always there in the background as a loving cheerleader and confidant.
