Have you got your mom a Mother’s Day gift yet? Are you holding off until last minute and hoping for a miracle? This article is your miracle! Whether you want to spend big or keep it personal and fun, we have five gifts that your mom will cherish.
1. Sports or Concert Tickets
With baseball season in full swing and playoffs in their prime, why not gift your mom tickets to a sports game?
If your mom is not the biggest sports fan, consider getting her tickets to an upcoming concert! There are multiple concerts taking place this year and she’s sure to love at least one of the artists. Gift her a pair or gift her enough tickets to take your entire family along – she’ll be grateful either way.
2. Handbags / Personalized Items
Is your mom constantly losing things in her purse? Does it take her fifteen minutes to find her car keys? She may be in need of a new handbag.
Selena Gomez, as one of the newest faces of Coach, was able to customize a Coach handbag her for mother for Mother’s Day. We recommend finding your mom a nice handbag that she’ll actually use, or customizing an item like a phone case with her initials!
3. A Charitable Donation
Pattie Mallette, Justin Bieber’s mom, has made it clear that she is indescribably proud of her son and his charitable behaviour. Justin Bieber has contributed to Make-A-Wish an incredible amount of times – a foundation that the Bieber family has always supported.
If you know of a certain cause that’s close to your mom’s heart, take the money you were saving for a gift and make a donation to a relevant organization in her name. You can put proof of the donation inside of a Mother’s Day card and if you want to take it a step further: accompany the donation with a nice meal.
4. Suitcases & Travel Necessities
If your mom is anything like the Jonas Brothers’ mom (photographed above), she travels a lot! Suitcases and travel equipment are proving to be a popular gift this year. Suitcases are sometimes customizable or can include an accessory (like a name tag) that is customizable!
This would be a great gift to pair with a small getaway, but the suitcase can always be the perfect pre-gift for an awesome birthday getaway for her.
5. A Mixtape
If you want something extremely personable to gift your mom (and stick-figure drawings no longer make the cut) we have the gift for you!
Our Mother’s Day Mixtape Generator will take your birthday and will generate a playlist of songs that came out when you were born. Each mixtape is uniquely crafted based on what music was most popular the year you were born. Make your mixtape, then send it to your mom! This mixtape is thoughtful and will send her into a whirlwind of nostalgia.
Check out these artists that you may have not known were moms!
