I don’t know about you, but I always struggle around this time of year with what to give to my mom and MIL for Mother’s Day. Here is the issue: Their birthdays are about a month and a half after Mother’s Day so I am always thinking if I get them this, what could I give them for their Birthday? Or vice versa. Since I will be celebrating my first mother’s day this year, I have thought up a list of things I wouldn’t mind getting myself. Here are some of my go-tos for MD gifts:
Picture/picture frame. As a mother, I treasure photos of my baby. I know our moms do as well. We just had Hamp’s 6 month pictures done, so you can bet they will be getting one. I know they always enjoy getting updated pictures of our family and the grandbabies.
Flowers. You can’t go wrong with flowers. It is Spring after all and who doesn’t love fresh blooms filling their home?
Spa Day. Treat your mom to a mani/pedi,or a massage. All women love being pampered. Rarely do they splurge on those things for themselves, so it’s nice to receive them as gifts.
Jewelry. You can’t go wrong with jewelry. If you don’t know your mom’s ring size, a necklace is a safe choice.
Gift Cards are a great choice if you are buying for a woman who has everything. They are easy and convenient to pick up. If you are a last minute shopper, this is probably best for you.
Gift Basket. I love putting together gift baskets. For example, I gave my SIL a movie themed gift one year for her birthday with gift certificates to the movie theater, a bag of popcorn, and candy in a plastic pop corn bucket. You can put your own twist on it and cater it to your mom and what she enjoys.
What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day? What are your go-to gifts?

I got my mum and gift busket and she got cards and picture frames from my lil nephew. You have lovely ideas, happy first time mother's day.
I am going to get my mom and mother in law a Shutterfly book from our wedding day 🙂

I love doing gift baskets – you can put a little bit of everything in them! A spa gift card is also a great idea 🙂
Pampering someway somehow is always my favorite. Whether that means a spa day or even just a day to lounge and do nothing! YAY for your 1st Mother's Day <3

Great list 🙂 We keep it simple with flowers and a card 🙂 Happy first Mother's Day!

The gift basket idea is great! I struggle because my mom and mother-in-law live far from us so I have to mail their gifts each year. If only Amazon did pretty gift wrapping!
