Are you looking for the best gifts for mom? You’ll find unique gift ideas that women love in this Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
We’ve included some items from our sponsors and affiliates, but all our opinions are our own.
Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to treat your mother, grandmother, and all the other women in your life who are mothers.
The Best Gifts For Mom
With this Mother’s Day Gift Guide we want to help you shower the mothers in your life… as well as yourself.
Yes, sometimes we moms have to give hints to spouses and kids to nudge them in the right direction for gift ideas. You may actually be doing your spouse or kids a favor if you help them with some suggestions for the best gifts for mom.
And you can purchase ALL of these gift ideas online and ship them directly to your mother or grandmother if they don’t live in the same house with you. Many are from small businesses, which are especially important to support these days.
Design Your Own Sterling Silver Heart Locket
With this Build Your Own Sterling Silver 2-Picture Heart Locket from Pictures on Gold, you can design a custom locket with lasered photos and personalized engraving.
The website walks you through the steps to easily customize your sterling silver locket so you can make it exactly the way you want it. You can choose clip art for the front of the locket, photos for the inside, and a message for the back.
To test out the process, I designed a locket with baby photos of my two kids and had their birthdates engraved on the back. The website was user-friendly with lots of different design options.
Order a custom locket for Mother’s Day and use MD10 for a 10% discount!
I cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am to have my Chirp Wheels during this time of staying at home.
The Chirp Wheel (previously called the Plexus Wheel) lets you roll out the muscles in your back and neck which helps stretch your muscles and relieve any back pain.
Since I can’t visit a chiropractor or massage therapist these days, I am beyond grateful for the relief I get from rolling my back out on these three sizes of Chirp wheels.
We reviewed the Chirp Wheel last year, and I use them every day!
Mothers of every age and fitness level will love receiving a Chirp Wheel.
I’m a 46-year-old woman and to be honest, I’m pretty darn out of shape. But I find the Chirp Wheels so easy to use and they really help my back pain.
Right now you can get a 3 Pack Chirp Wheel+ set worth $165 for only $99.
And you’ll get an extra bonus product.
Heartwarming Picture Book (That’s Really for Mom)
I absolutely LOVE this book and it is truly a PERFECT Mother’s Day gift.
Hold My Hand, Mama, is a touching story that celebrates the mother-daughter relationship through the circle of life from a daughter’s first steps to her mother’s last.
This newly released picture book was written by Gabrielle Martin, a full-time working mama who was inspired by her two daughters to write and self-publish this sweet story.
I want to encourage you to purchase one or more copies of this beautiful book as gifts for all the mothers in your life. They will love it and you’ll be helping this new author whose in-person book launch events have unfortunately been canceled due to the current stay-at-home orders.
This is a gift that will give in so many ways!
One of the best gifts for mom is personalized jewelry.
And an especially wonderful way to give a meaningful gift of customized jewelry is to order it directly from an artist who lovingly crafts each piece by hand.
Lisa Lehmann is a mother and artist who has devoted herself to designing and making jewelry to empower women and make them feel special.
Browse Lisa’s site and take a look at all the stunning designs.
Luxury Skin Care
One of our favorites is the Beautycounter skin care line.
Moms deserve to be pampered and this Countertime collection is the perfect pick.
To purchase Beautycounter products, you can shop through a consultant such as our friend Cynthia.
New Eyeglasses with Blue Light Protection
With all that extra screen time right now during self-isolation, add in some blue light protection on the lenses.
Thanks to SmartBuyGlasses.com, buying glasses online has never been so fun and easy. Using the virtual try-on tool, your mom can choose the pair that best suits her.
Take a look at the large selections of styles in SmartBuyGlasses.com, you are sure to find a great gift for this Mother’s Day.
LuLaRoe leggings are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn in my life! I love them.
So far during quarantine, I have literally worn LuLaRoe leggings every. single. day.
But part of the fun of wearing LuLaRoe is picking out a fabric design… so a great way to give a LuLaRoe gift is by giving a LuLaRoe “gift certificate”. Then she can check out all the different leggings, skirts, tops, and dresses to choose her favorite styles.
While there aren’t official LuLaRoe Gift Cards, our good friend Laura, who was formerly an editor here at 5 Minutes for Mom, is a LuLaRoe consultant and she will arrange for you to prepay for your gift purchase with a digital “gift certificate” so it acts like a gift card for LuLaRoe.
Join Laura’s Facebook group and ask her to help you give a LuLaRoe gift.
Genius Gift for Nursing Mothers
It’s called kindestCup – 3 in 1 Multifunctional Breast Milk Expression Cup.
This incredible new invention was created by a nursing mother.
Nursing moms can use the kindestCup for hand expression, cup feeding, and saving leaking breast milk.
Since many families are struggling right now, the owner of Kindest Cup is offering a flexible pricing model to make her product accessible to more parents.
She realized that even her little breastfeeding cup could make a difference in this pandemic after reading this mom’s blog post about her experience with a baby hospitalized with viral lung infection (not COVID, another virus that also causes pneumonia).
And when you purchase the kindestCup as a Mother’s Day gift, you’ll also be giving the gift of supporting a small, mom-operated business.
Forever Legacy Book
Nothing is more precious than family memories. Now there is a new way to treasure those memories… with the Forever Legacy Book.
This is an especially creative way of gift-giving for Mother’s Day while we are all required to shelter in place.
With the help of Forever Legacy Book, we can help capture our loved one’s stories and legacy using technology like Zoom and FaceTime and recording the legacy interviews we do with them.
Unlike other journals which are made to be given as a blank book, Forever Legacy Book will walk you through the process of having a meaningful one-on-one conversation with an elder loved one.
This step-by-step guide helps you interview your loved one and document their deepest life lessons. You will also be guided on which archival photos to select to accompany each question. When you’re all done, you’ll have a new family keepsake, which will also be everything you need to edit together your own collection of legacy videos.

Moms will love how it is so easy to use. The buttons allow unified volume for both the phone and speaker, plus one-touch Bluetooth sync. She can skip to something new, return to something old, and play and pause songs right from the speaker.

If you really want to treat mom on Mother’s Day, give her an Epson EcoTank ET-2760 All-in-One Printer.
Whether she is printing photos, recipes, papers for her work, or coloring sheets for her kids, Mom will love how easy it is to print, copy, and scan with this printer.

You can save up to 90 percent with low-cost replacement ink bottles. Plus, you can get up to 2 years of ink with the included or a replacement ink set2. Each replacement ink bottle is equivalent to about 80 individual cartridges.
Since we’re all trying to save money and not go to the store, not running out of printer ink is an awesome gift.
Personalized Daughters and Mom Wall Art
This heartwarming artwork is based on the love and bond daughters all around the world share with their mother. Your mother is your first and true friend that stands by you and helps you become the beautiful young lady that you are. She supports you when you need, and takes a firm stand when required. But through all this, she only means you well. The one person in your life you can truly rely on, who will love you no matter what. So naturally your home will be where your heart is, and that is with your mother.

These aren’t any ordinary gardening gloves… They have interior-reinforced pillow-top nail protectors! The non-slip silicone dots, water resistant fabric, and adjustable wrist size make these gloves the envy of any gardener or DIY’er.
One of the classic best gifts for mom is of course top quality chocolate. One of our personal favorite chocolate brands is Green & Black’s. In fact, these are the chocolate bars we used to wrap with our Mother’s Day Printable Candy Bar wrappers.
If you look closely in the photos for those printables, you’ll notice that we took the outer paper wrapping off the chocolate bars and had the pretty Green & Black’s gold foil showing under our Mother’s Day printable wrappers.
These premium organic chocolate bars, imported from the UK, make an excellent gift for moms. Available in ten unique flavours, there’s something for every palette in white, milk and dark; and in a variety of delicious flavours which makes it perfect for developing unique recipes.

Winc Wine Club
If you really want to make a woman happy, get her a wine club subscription. Each month she’ll be reminded of how much you care.
And if you give your best friend or your sister a Winc wine club subscription, I bet she’ll invite you over to enjoy it together. What a great reason to get together each month.
Note to husbands:
Your wife called… She REALLY wants this gift!
Decorative Mirror To Brighten Her Home
A unique gift idea for moms is a pretty mirror to brighten her day. This Umbra Prisma Mirror from The Home Depot Canada is a stunning way to add the function of a mirror combined with stylish wall art.
She’ll love how this mirror makes the room feel larger and full of inspiring light.
It uses plated metal wire, beautiful finishes, and geometric shapes that play on depth to create a modern and functional design. She’ll appreciate that it’s easy to mount and can be hung vertically or horizontally.
But now the Next Generation Philips Airfryer, is 20% smaller but has the same internal capacity, so it’s a perfect fit for your kitchen counter top.
We love how the Philips Airfryer fries, bakes, roasts and grills with little to no oil so it’s a perfect solution for fast, tasty and healthy meals and snacks.
Infusion Tea Pot
Give her a new infusion tea pot so she can relax with a cup of freshly brewed loose leaf tea.
And of course, this is another gift you can purchase online and have shipped directly to your mother or grandmother if she doesn’t live in the same house as you.

A Book For All Moms
This is another title written by one of our long time blogging friends, Jessica Turner.
In The Fringe Hours, Jessica shares her secrets for taking time to pamper yourself in whatever way fills you up. As moms we are all constantly filling others needs and often never taking some much needed time to ourselves.
Give a woman permission to take time for herself… Give her The Fringe Hours!
If you really want to treat mom with something special, get her a luxury purse like this Dooney & Bourke Saffiano Mini Zip Janine.
