Need the perfect gift for mama? I’ve got you covered! Whether it’s for yourself or for the mama’s in your life, I’ve rounded up 10 gift ideas for Mother’s Day every mama will love.
Motherhood is HARD. So so rewarding, but so very hard sometimes. It’s okay to take a minute and accept the appreciation and love that comes our way! If you are a mama, sacrifice is your middle name…whether it be always drinking your coffee cold, wiping butts and butts and butts (but never getting any privacy to wipe your own) and definitely stepping on a lego or two during a sleepless night. We’ve all been there, and we want to give you a hug and say Thank You for being a mama!
& to quote Beyonce,
I’m in a new chapter in my life, and I’m not even trying to be who I was. It’s so beautiful that children do that to you.”
(THAT ARE SECRETLY SLIPPERS)
My husband surprised me with a pair of Birdies a few weeks ago, & they were the thing I never knew I always wanted! Shoes, that are secretly slippers! Maybe I haven’t been up on the latest news lately but they. are. the. bomb! Apparently, Meghan Markle has many pairs…so if it’s good enough for a princess, it’s good enough for us!
These are my faves! The Starling Cheetah | The Starling Azure Flora | The Ani Black

If you are a jewelry type of gal but don’t require banks to be broken, I’d highly recommend Happiness Boutique! I wear a few of their necklaces almost every day and they really stand up to mamahood. Here are a few of my favourite stacks to wear: Delicate Choker Set + Star Coin Necklace.

Because we need breakfast in bed more than once a year, and we need something to eat it on. All kidding aside – breakfast trays are so wonderful to have by your bed at all times. It’s the major accessory to lounging in bed. This one from Anthropologie is a stunner! Calliope Breakfast Tray
Haven’t you heard? Diffusers are pretty much a basic need for everyone nowadays. You can promote health in almost every way with a diffuser, so I think the mama in your life (or you) would appreciate some all-around self-care.
saje x jillian harris have teamed up to bring you a gorgeous diffuser and essential oil blend Happy Place! Check it out here.
MAGNOLIA TABLE COOKBOOK
I’m a big hoarder of cookbooks and this is one of my faves! Serious comfort in this book and it’s just really really addicting to look through. Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mac + Cheese, Fried Chicken + Lemon Pie…you can’t go wrong!
Okay – if you or the mama in your life doesn’t have plants in the house… get on that STAT! Plants purify the air, help you breathe, boost health and help with concentration (which dwindles away with every kid)! Maybe swap the usual floral bouquet for a lovely plant this Mother’s Day?
Remember the lack of concentration I just mentioned? Well apparently the more kids you have the less of your brain you use haha (but the more your heart grows!) The daily roller from George + Willy is a sweet way to write down all the grocery items you think of, appointments you book on the fly and inspirational quotes you need to get through your day.

A beautiful way to cover up that Day 5, dry shampooed hair. No judgment here!
If you aren’t the type to want a subscription box of one-off beauty products or items, the Public Goods box will fulfill all the box subscription needs! A box full of essential items you are already buying, with ingredients you can feel good about and the simplest, nicest packaging that will make your home feel good too! Gift a Public Goods box to the mama you love this Mother’s Day, as well as yourself!
Use code BRITSTRAW for a FREE Vacuum Water Bottle with your purchase.
GIFT CARD for some SELF CARE
I don’t care who you or yo’ mama is…some serious self-care will please anybody! And if it doesn’t, they may need it more than you think!! A quick massage, facial or just going out to get a manicure can be that little bit of extra care that was desperately needed.
Need some self-care ideas? Check out my post on 30 Ways to Practice Self Care. Why not make a DIY coupon booklet of self-care ideas to gift to her?
I hope, if anything, these ideas give you that little bit of inspiration to show the mama in your life a little extra love + thoughtfulness. Not to take the place of the love she deserves to be shown each + every day.
Happy Mama’s Day!

I will ALWAYS take shoes for Mother’s Day or any day! You have so many great ideas here.
These are such great ideas! I love shoes because I’m always trying to find cute pairs to slide on for chasing the kids are running errands! Such a great list that you have here!
Alli Smith says
I need those shoes that are really slippers. They are so cute. I think I need several pair. And I’m a cookbook collector and that’s definitely one I need to add to my collection.
GiGi Eats says
I cannot believe I am supposed to be celebrated this coming Sunday. It will be my first ever mother’s day. Honestly, I don’t want or need my husband to recognize me in a special way, or get me anything. He appreciates me on the daily and I truly appreciate it!
Amber Myers says
I love these ideas! I’m getting my mom some gardening stuff. She loves to be outside with her plants. Gift cards are always a win too.
Sarah Bailey says
These are some lovely ideas of things which are just a bit different to offer up for mother’s day. I got my Mum brunch at a local cafe she loves plus some gorgeous flowers!
I would be so grateful for any of these gifts on Mother’s Day. I especially love that breakfast tray!
I would love to receive any of these gifts. I have a few people in mind that these gifts would be perfect for.
Terri Steffes says
I love all of these. I am not expecting a gift (and that’s just fine!) as we are really trying to be debt free in the next year or so. It takes a lot of focus.
I actually asked my kids for some plants this year. I would like to have some in the house.
Great gift ideas! I love the breakfast tray! It’s perfect for my mother and me, too! 🙂
Meagen Brosius says
My mother and my mother in law both love getting plants for Mother’s Day. It’s become a little tradition to include a basket of flowers for their gifts each year!
All of these are wonderful ideas. I’d love to get any of them myself. I always love the classic flowers of course. They’re my favorite.
Ruth I says
I love all of these gift ideas! I think I will give my Mom necklace this Mother’s day. She will surely love it
I love these gift ideas. My mom lives far away, so I probably call her 🙂 I wish I could take her out for dinner.
Amy h says
I really could use a pair of shoes that are secretly slippers! So I can wear them to work.
Fatima Torres says
I’m not going to lie, that breakfast tray does come in handy. We have a similar one and we use it for breakfast in bed.
Thanks for sharing these awesome gift ideas. Perfect for all varying moms!
These are great gift ideas. I’d love to give my mom a pair of Birdies, I think she’d love them. (I would too.) I’m always hoping for plants.
