Be Prepared for Mother's Day With These 6 Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away, and when May 12 rolls around you’ll want to make sure you have an assortment of Mother’s Day gifts that make your love and appreciation abundantly clear. Don’t wait until the last minute — ensure this year’s celebration is one to remember with personalized gifts for every Mom on your list. Here are our favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas:

Blank Family Cookbook

Whether it’s an elaborate stew, a perfectly-seasoned meat dish, or a simple batch of brownies, everything seems to taste better when Mom makes it. Give her the gift of a blank family cookbook where she can collect all of her signature recipes and experiment with new ones. You can find some blank cookbooks on Amazon, but if you’re crafty try making your own!

Gardening Tool Basket

Your mom has spent years juggling soccer practices, dance recitals, PTA meetings, and countless other stresses on her calendar. Give her some much-needed time for herself with a durable, handwoven tool basket that helps her keep her gardening tools organized and accessible. Try this rattan gardening basket from Williams Sonoma or venture out to your local gardening or crafts store to find one from the community.

QALO Companion

This spacious and snazzy bag has plenty of room for Mom’s essential items including her smartphone, makeup, keys, and more! The lightweight material and convenient wristlet of the QALO Companion makes it the perfect bag to bring on spontaneous adventures, outdoor excursions, or nights on the town. Did we mention it comes in a stunning metallic gold?

Smart Yoga Mat

Tons of moms are enjoying the health benefits of yoga, but with a smart yoga mat, you can take it to the next level. Self-rolling, this yoga mat comes pre-installed with Alexa-enabled yoga routines so your mom can stretch and find her center without the need for a coach or a random instructional video on YouTube. Your mom will be doing headstands and crow pose in no time!

Spa Day

Between Marie Kondo’s tidying up revolution and a general trend of “less is more,” sometimes the best gift is an experience instead of an object. According to MarketWatch, experience gifts lead to more happiness in the wrong run compared to physical gifts. In that case, treat the Moms in your life to a day of true rest and relaxation at a spa in your area. Search on Groupon for a deal. For the truly adventurous moms book a session in a sensory deprivation tank.

Personalized Mother’s Day Rings

Craft the ideal Mother’s Day memento with a customized QALO ring! Add a significant date or phrase to her silicone ring for a timeless gift. With a QALO ring, your mom won’t have to sacrifice comfort or safety, whether canoeing in the lake or getting her treadmill on at the gym. Shop our Mother’s Day gift guide to choose between several of our latest styles and color options. While you’re at it, browse our men’s silicone rings to get a matching ring for her main squeeze.

Plan ahead and choose any of these Mother’s Day gift ideas to make this year’s celebration the best yet!
