Mothers have a hard job! You pour yourself into your children for years, then they grow up and move on and you have to figure out new ways to keep yourself busy.

I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way though. This stay at home mothering job can be mocked at, but I wouldn’t trade the highest paying job for missing out on being with my children every day.

With Mother’s Day coming up you might be trying to think of the perfect Mother’s Day gift to give your mom, or you might have children asking you what you want and your mind is totally blank. I’ve had that happen before! Here are 10 gift ideas that I think most moms would love!

(Don’t miss out on the gift card giveaway at the end of the post!)

Magnolia Table Cookbook

Like it or not, moms have to provide 3 meals a day. And snacks. And occasionally dessert. That’s a lot of cooking! I recently ordered this brand new Magnolia Table cookbook that Joanna Gaines wrote and absolutely love it! If you are looking for comfort food recipes, this is for you. If you want whole grain, healthy living all the way, this is not for you! I cook with a combination of both so I can keep my husband happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

The pictures in this book are beautiful and inspiring.

Diffuser Necklace

I love diffusing essential oils like peace and calming, lemon, and orange during the day. A necklace where you can put a drop of essential oil and keep it close to your nose to smell makes so much sense!

A new purse

Sean blessed me with a new purse for my birthday and I love it! I’ve been wanting a pale pink purse for quite awhile now, and it’s the nicest purse I’ve ever owned. He found it at TJMax, and I found a matching wallet.

You can find some similar type purses on Amazon here.

Instant Pot

I’m so incredibly thankful for my Instant Pot! While it is a more practical gift, moms learn to appreciate the practical gifts as well as the melt your heart type gifts. I use my Instant Pot almost weekly.

Flexi Clip

Of course no gift guide I put together for moms can be complete without a mention of Lilla Rose! My favorite hair accessory, these Flexi Clips are perfect for busy moms who want to fix their hair in just minutes!

You can also get a leather 8 clip (featured below) and pair it with a hair stick!

For a limited time new customers to Lilla Rose can buy 3 items and get a 4th item totally free!


Wearing an apron in the kitchen makes you feel feminine and keeps your clothes clean! You can get some really feminine aprons for moms at Flirty Aprons for super affordable prices! They have a Mother’s Day sale going on, so you can get one for under $10.00!


How many of us wear old faded sweatpants to bed? I have a mixture of old pj’s and a few really cute pairs that I love to wear. It’s been a few years since I’ve been a nursing mom, and now I have 14 and 12 year old boys in the house. I’m not the type to just let everything show while I nurse, so I ordered these beautiful nursing pajamas that lift up instead of needing to pull down! I’m looking forward to using them, and not feeling super sloppy during those days when I spend more time in pajamas than I normally do!


I think most moms love chocolate. While it might be rather traditional, some nice chocolate is always appreciated! If you have a Costco membership, they always have a great selection! And you can grab some flowers while you are there. ๐Ÿ™‚

Books To Inspire Her

Better Together and Read Aloud Family Books

A suggestions would be:

The Read-Aloud Family

Better Together

The Life Giving Parent (I can’t wait to read this new book by Sally and Clay Clarkson!)

Leather Earrings

Nickel and Suede Earrings

Nickle and Suede offer the best leather earrings I’ve seen yet! I previously had a pair of leather earrings but these are so much better quality. I have this champagne pair and the navy blue pair.ย If you want to add an easy accessory that will dress up your whole outfit, these earrings are perfect for that!

  1. Itโ€™s so hard to decide which gift card to choose, but since we repainted all of our main living spaces this winter and I still donโ€™t have anything on the walls, I think I would choose Hobby Lobby

  2. I donโ€™t know that I could spend that amount anywhere, but I would probably choose Hobby Lobby or Zulily ๐Ÿค—

    • Oh my, I could spend this amount at Hobby Lobby for sure. LOL But we still have a lot of things to get for our house. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh man, itโ€™s like Sophieโ€™s choice! Nearly a tie between Hobby Lobby & Starbucks. I think Hobby Lobby would prevail… thanks for the chance! ๐Ÿ˜˜

  4. I would probably choose Stitch Fix or Zulily because I love getting new clothes! Etsy had a lot of cute things as well, so this would be a really hard choice! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I would probably try Stitch Fix. They always have some great outfit ideas, but I haven’t been able to try them out yet!

  6. Thank you for the list. My husband asked me for gift ideas and I could not think of any. There are some really great ideas on your blog. And the giveaway is pretty exciting too!

  7. I would love to win the gift card to Stitch Fix! I always love the clothes they send but often have a hard time justifying spending the money on myself. I would love to be able to splurge a little without all the guilt!

  8. Thank you for the five away! Not sure if this is where I’m supposed to comment, but I don’t know where else. I believe I’d go with Hobby Lobby! Thanks, Blessings!

  9. Iโ€™d love to try Stitch Fix, but always have a hard time spending money on myself, so this would be a great excuse ๐Ÿ˜Š

  10. I would love both Stitch Fix and Zulily. I think I would choose Stitch Fix, though. I have had two great “fixes” but I didn’t buy anything, because everything was so pricey.

  11. I cant decide between trying stitch fix and getting a new wardrobe or Hobby Lobby, love that place.

  12. Hobby Lobby. Love supporting a company that shares my values. Also like the seasonal things and that I could share the joy with my children and get them things to work with.

  13. I would love a gift card to Hobby Lobby! Or maybe Zulily…Iโ€™ve never ordered nothing from there and have always wanted to try it.

  14. Hi. I love your Mother’s Day blog!! I would like Stitch Fix as 1st choice or Zulily as a 2nd choice for a gift card. Thank you for being so generous!!

  15. I would definitely choose Hobby Lobby! I have dreamed about having a gallery wall in my apartment for awhile, and I finally made my dream happen with items from Hobby Lobby. Love their decor items!

  16. They all look super fun, but i would especially enjoy Starbucks. Because that is one thing I can’t justify spending on my self. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hobby Lobby or Zulily would be great as well!

  17. A Hobby Lobby gift card would be fantastic! I would love to do some decorating and get some more craft supplies for our kiddos!

  18. That’s a hard choice! I would either choose Hobby Lobby (to get lots of craft supplies for our family or my business) or Etsy so that I could have the fun of blessing many other small business owners by purchasing from their shops! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Etsy or Zulily!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for hosting this. I was wondering what to get my Mom for Mothers’ Day!

    If I won, I would want the gift card to be for Stitch Fix!

  22. I just am so thankful for your generosity to host this giveaway. I really enjoy going to Hobby Lobby and finding beautiful things for home and gifts. Hobby Lobby is the gift card I’d choose. Thanks!

  24. I think I’d like Stitch Fix since I’ve heard about it, but haven’t ever used it. Hobby Lobby or Starbucks would be great, too.

  25. I would chose Etsy, I have been trying lately to support smaller business people. Thanks for sponsoring this Caroline!

  26. I am not sure yet which one I’d choose if I won the giveaway. Probably StitchFix or Zulily. Thanks for the giveaway!
