think know that your mom deserves the entire world and then some.
How the heck are you supposed to find Mother’s Day gifts for mom when nothing seems to do the love you have for her justice?!

Between personalized jewelry, customized wall decor, and heartfelt letters, these are meaningful gift ideas for mom that can appeal to any budget.
I want to share with you some of the mom-approved best gifts that I have given as Mother’s Day gifts for mom!
I asked my mom to give me a cumulative list of some of her all-time favorites and I’m going to share the winners with you today!
This post is all about Mother’s Day gifts for mom.
Mother’s Day Gifts for Mom
1. Personalized Jewelry
Personalized jewelry seems to be a go-to for me and my sister when shopping for gifts for our mom. And, lucky for us, my mom absolutely LOVES them.
My mom is a HUGE jewelry lover so adding some sentimental value to something she already loves is the perfect gift solution. Talk about a tear-jerker.
Over the years, we have gotten my mom personalized necklaces, bracelets, and rings. The options are endless for style and customization. My sister and I typically opt for our initials, names, or important dates. Thankfully, these have all seemed to be a hit with my mom.
If your mom is also a jewelry lover, I promise she will love this idea!
2. ‘Mom’ Mug
I don’t think I’ve met a mom that doesn’t love (or need) her coffee.
As a coffee lover myself, I know that drinking my morning coffee feels even more special when it’s out of a cute mug. There are SO many cute mug options for mom. That means that, no matter what your mom’s personal taste or style is, there is sure to be a ‘mom’ mug for her!
Here are just some of my own favorites that I would get for my momma:
I think this one is hilarious (and definitely relatable for my poor mom😉😂):
3. “What I Love About Mom” Book
Another super cute and meaningful Mother’s Day gift for mom is a book about all the reasons you love her.
It doesn’t get much more personal and emotional than that. I can almost guarantee that any mom would love to get this as a gift.
I know that sometimes, with the busyness of life, we can forget to remind our mom how much she means to us. This is the perfect opportunity to remind her of all the incredible reasons you love her.
Love, love, love this one!
And if you want to take it to a whole other level…
4. Memory Book
A memory book makes such a perfect Mother’s Day gift idea. I think I can speak for most moms when I say they love looking back and gettin’ a little nostalgic about their children and their family.
A memory book is the perfect way to do this!
My favorite place to make photo books/memory books in on Shutterfly.
I made one for my big sister when she graduated and my sister makes one for her fiancé every year for their anniversary. They are so personal and special. Plus, they are SUPER fun to flip back through even years later.
A gift that keeps on giving!
5. Coupon Book
Annnnd… another gift that just KEEPS. ON. GIVING.
I love, love, love this option as a Mother’s Day gift for mom because it costs…
Wait for it…
Yup. You heard me.
All you need is some good ideas for how to spoil your mom, some paper, and some markers.
OR, to make it even easier on ya, I’ve created a FREE printable coupon book.
I have put everything together, decorated it, and made it cute and mom-ish!
There’s even a blank page for you to add in your own ideas!
I can send it directly to your email right away so you can print it out ASAP!
6. ‘Mom’ Merch
IDK about you but my momma owns sweatshirts and shirts with “mom”, “momma”, etc. across the front… and I seriously think they are SO cute.
Heck, being a mom is something to brag about. Moms freaking rock. There are a ton of cute options for “mom merch”. Whether it be a sweatshirt, t-shirt, sweatpants, or even just a mug like I mentioned above, I know plenty of moms that live for this stuff!
I’ve found some SUPER cute options (that are also SUPER affordable) on Amazon!!
7. Personalized Cutting Board
This might sound a bit random but hear me out.
I got this for my mom as a Mother’s Day gift last year and she LOVED it.
She actually uses it as an appetizer/cheese tray but it could really be used for anything. I feel like I am always searching for the perfect gift so it made me so happy to give her something that she LOVES and USES. So this one was a huge win!
I ordered mine off of Etsy but I can’t find the exact one anymore so I’m just linking super similar ones below!
8. Personalized Wall Decor
My sister got my mom a framed piece a few years ago that is still hanging in my family room today. It has all the main important dates for our family (parents meeting, wedding, home, my sister’s birthday, my birthday). Talk about a meaningful gift!
That gift was my inspiration behind this suggestion. There are so many different options for customizable home decor that is super special and meaningful.
9. Meaningful Jewelry
Jewelry doesn’t have to be customized to be incredibly meaningful. I have seen so many absolutely adorable pieces of jewelry that are absolutely perfect for a Mother’s Day gift for mom. As a matter of fact, this is probably my #1 go-to when I am gift hunting for someone special in my life. Macy’s, Kohl’s, TJMaxx, and Alex & Ani are always my top places to shop when on the hunt for some good jewels.
I tend to go for necklaces the most, but earrings, rings, bracelets, etc. are all absolutely perfect gift ideas for mom!
10. Handwritten Letter
When I first asked my mom to think of her favorite gifts she’s ever received for Mother’s Day, her immediate initial response was “handwritten letters“.
You heard it here first, straight from mom herself.
This just goes to show you that it is truly not about how expensive or fancy a gift is. The sentimental value and the meaningfulness behind a gift is what is truly important – especially to moms on Mother’s Day.
For me personally, I look at Mother’s Day as a chance to make my mom feel as loved as she is (which is hard to do because she is REALLY loved). A deep, heartfelt letter is my favorite way to express that.
I can promise you that your mom would love to receive a letter from you this Mother’s Day. Expressing true love and emotion is just something you can’t put a price tag on. It’s the very best gift of all!❤️
Those are my top 10 Mother’s Day gifts for mom!
I hope that you were able to gain some inspiration and ideas from this list.
Holidays and gift-giving can feel stressful. My main piece of advice here is to take a deep breath, relax, and think about the way you can best express your love and emotions for that person.
Whether this be through a fancy gift or a handwritten letter, it truly does not matter. What matters most is the meaning and thought behind your gift.
