It is that time of the year when you remember and celebrate your mother. Yes, that lady who is always working tirelessly and worrying about you. I know, she says that she is not into gifts but who doesn’t like a little gesture or gift? So here I have cherry picked some personalized and unique Mother’s Day gift ideas that will not burn a hole in your pocket and yet show your mum that you treasure her. Here are 15 Mother’s Day gift ideas:

1. Books

If your mum is a reader, then books are gifts that never go out of fashion. Believe me, I know. My son gifted me two books for my birthday last year and though I have still not started reading them, I truly cherish them. To a reader, a book is always welcome. And if your mum is into e-books, buy her a Kindle. She will appreciate having many books at her fingertips. You can even buy her a library membership.


2. Wellness Planner

Mums generally neglect their health as they are caught up in routines. Buy her a planner where she can jot down ideas, goals and daily chores along with her health and fitness goals. This is a simple gift but will go a long way in making her life better planned and stress free.


3. Health Check

Most times our mothers put their own health on the back burner. Kickstart a good habit by gifting her a health check this Mother’s Day. She wouldn’t want to waste the money and will go for it despite herself. That way you would have laid the stepping stone to a great habit. If possible, go with her. That will sweeten the gift more.

4. Chocolates

8. A Handy Gadget:

This does not have to very expensive but something that makes her life easier. You can go for something like a handy chopper that is not too expensive to an Airfryer (if you have the budget) if she is a health-conscious cook.  Perhaps an epilator, massager, Kindle or a home pedicure kit is what she desires. Go as per her like and buy her something she really needs.


9. Wine Glass/Personalized Tea or Coffee Mug

I am a wine lover and love wine glasses. A personalized wine glass is a gift I’d love. But if you mum is an avid tea or coffee aficionado, then go with personalized mugs. It’s not too expensive and you can run amuck with creativity. Go for a family picture or a quirky quote.

10. Cook a Meal for Her

This is a really thoughtful gesture if you can cook a meal for her. But if you are challenged in the cooking department take her out for a meal or organize one for her and her friends. On one day, feed her and show her your gratitude.

11. Scented Candles

If she loves jewellery, get her a beautiful jewellery box. A candle stand is a good gift as well. If she is into handbags, buy her one. Or if she likes perfumes, then a good one will be a perfect gift for her. Many mothers love handmade or organic soaps and toiletries. This would be a good time to buy her a thoughtful hamper.

But it is the thought which counts much more than the actual gift or its price. Go on, do something special for your mum even if it is just a gesture this Mother’s Day.
