Are you in a bit of a gift rut?  Maybe you tend to give the same gifts each year and want to branch out a little this year?  I’ve got you covered!  Read on for my 7 Unique Mother’s Day gift ideas!

For The Mom That Loves To Travel

How about sharing the gift of saving room in her luggage by gifting her this shampoo bar.  I’ve used this one on my travels and it works well and smells SO good!  Maybe pair it with this dress that’s perfect for travel since it doesn’t wrinkle easily.

Something To Make Sure She Always Has Fresh Produce On Hand

Get her a subscription to Misfits Market!

Reusable Beeswax Wraps

For the Mom that wants to be more eco-friendly, these make a great gift!  Reusable and super cute, too!

Fitness Minded Moms

For the Mom who loves to run or walk, or wants motivation to move more, this Garmin Vivoactive will let her track steps, sleep, calories burned, and can also show calls and texts.

Make a donation in her honor to her favorite cause or charity 

One of my favorites is Compassion International – You can select from their catalog which has options like clean water, textbooks, literacy classes for mothers, Bibles, newborn support, and many others.  They range in price from $7 to $48.  You can make a donation online and they will provide you with either a printed or electronic Honor Card to give your Mother, letting her know you’ve given this gift in her honor.southviewcompassion1

Help Mom Meet Her Health Goals

Eat To Live is one of the cookbooks I use the most – so many recipes that not only taste good but also provide healthy fuel for your body.

Something To Grow 

If she doesn’t have a green thumb, maybe opt for a hard to kill succulent OR if she likes gardening but doesn’t love the heat, bugs, and outdoor work involved, why not give her this cute Indoor Herb Garden Kit.

Last but not least, the 1 cliché gift idea as promised

Flowers!  Not necessarily a bad idea, but might be good in addition to a more…personalized gift?  Just my two cents 🙂


Have any other good gift ideas you’re planning to buy or make this year?  Please share it below!
