Moms can be impossible to shop for, so finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift can be a real challenge. Whether she has it all or she refuses to indulge any information on what she wants; we tend to question ourselves like crazy before deciding on a present. Don’t sweat the details, because these gifts are sure to impress any Mother, even the pickiest or hard to shop for!
A Bouquet of Flowers
You can’t go wrong when you purchase a bouquet of flowers because there are so many different arrangements available. To send flowers for Mother’s Day, be sure to order in advance or purchase from an online store with a generous delivery schedule. If you don’t know what type of flowers your Mom prefers, try to choose a bouquet based on her favorite colors, or subscribe to a flower delivery service that switches up the kinds of flowers delivered every week or month.
Manicure or Pedicure
Even if your Mom doesn’t like to wear fake nails or paint her toenails, it’s difficult for anyone to pass up a day at the spa. Purchase a gift card for a local nail salon where she can kick back, relax, and enjoy a foot massage or new nail polish on her hands. Nail salons provide a wide range of services that aren’t limited to nails like facials and waxing. Some specialty salons will even offer premium services such as eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions, and more.
Coffee Espresso Machine
About half of the people in the United States over the age of 18 drink coffee every day, so it’s likely, your Mom likes to drink a cup of Joe every now and then. Most modern coffee and espresso machines are pre-loadable and run on a timer, so your Mom can have her dose of caffeine prepared before waking up in the morning. You could also consider buying a latte maker, concentrated liquid coffee (like Jot), or a milk foamer if she’s big into Starbucks.
Cooking is a skill that’s in high demand these days thanks to how easy and inexpensive eating out has become over the past decade. Signing your Mom up for cooking lessons can come across as mean-spirited if they’re already good cooks, so ensure you don’t imply they’re bad at this skill. However, if they’re aware their cooking could use a bit of work, then gifting a MasterClass from Gordon Ramsey or Dominique Ansel could be a saving grace for them!
A Year’s Supply of Makeup
An incredibly thoughtful gift doesn’t have to be new, flashy, or expensive. In fact, you could buy duplicates of something your Mom uses every day, so they don’t have to purchase it again a few months later. If you know what kind of makeup your Mom uses, or you have a way to find out, buy them a year’s supply of foundation, lipstick, and mascara. Since makeup expires, it’s essential only to purchase what they’ll need and use on a daily or weekly basis.
Wine or Whiskey
Unless your Mom explicitly wants to avoid drinking, purchasing wine or alcohol is always welcomed. A bottle or two of your Mom’s favorite wine will bring a smile to her face; plus, it’s a present you can both share! You likely know your Mom’s preferences for alcohol if you’ve been out to dinner with her or went on a trip together, so purchase what you’ve seen her drink. If you’re unsure what to choose, preload $100 on a gift card for the local liquor store.
Dog Toys for the Dog Mom
Almost 50% of American households own at least one dog. If you’re completely unsure what to buy your Mom, buy for the family dog instead. BarkBox is a popular subscription box that includes a collection of innovative toys, all-natural treats and chew toys each month. Your Mom will love the fact that you thought of her furry son or daughter by buying her a year’s subscription. You could also buy a few toys from the pet store and package those as gifts.
