I love Mother’s Day, not just because I’m a mother, but because it represents love and gratitude for all women who provide motherly love, guidance and caring to another person. It’s a time to recognize a Mother’s love, which is one of the most powerful forces that exist.

And, on the lighter side, I love the spring-y colors and floral designs that are in stores and online around Mother’s Day.

So, I decided to put together this Mother’s Day gift guide mostly for fun but also to help you with your gift-giving decisions this Mother’s Day. The best part is that these gifts can do double-duty because they are great any time of year you want to honor a special woman on their birthday, on an anniversary and even on Christmas!


So, scroll down for 9 suggestions I found that I personally would love to receive as a gift for Mother’s Day 2019, and I think other Mamas will, too!

Life is Good “Kindness is Love in Action” Tee/Top…

Life is Good has a collection called the “Love collecton“. It appears that they primarily promote it during Valentine’s Day, but, come on, love is a year-round thing 🙂

Here is a tee from that collection.  Click the image below to get more details and to see other items from the Life is Good Love Collection…





Colored Pencil Set in a Wooden Carrying Case

We love Crayola in our house! My favorite thing is the peace of mind I have that all of their products (crayons, paint, glue, modeling clay, etc.) are non-toxic. So, I feel better about my kids safely using it with their art, and, boy, do they love art!

Crayola actually makes several items you don’t usually see in stores and below is just one example that is actually targeted towards adults.

In fact, they even have a dedicated section of their website devoted to Mother’s Day this year; click here to go to that page and view other items for Mom.

These colored pencils will be perfect for Mom on a relaxing afternoon on vacation. (Crayola makes several coloring books for adults as well, like this one).

LUXURY for Mom

6-Piece Crabtree & Evelyn London Hand Lotion Set

I love Crabtree & Evelyn scented lotions!

My faves are Rosewater and Lavender but this mini set includes: Rosewater, Lavender, Avocado, Iris, Lily, and Summer Hill.  She can figure out the scent she likes the most by sampling one of each.

It’s hard to buy perfume for another person, but one of these is sure to please.

Crabtree-and-Evelyn-Hand-Lotion-SetPRACTICALITY for Mom

Make-up or Pencil Zippered Pouch with a Sweet Inscription

All Moms need all the storage and carry space they can get. I think I have at least 2 zippered pouches for random things in my purse. This one is practical with a sentimental edge.

The pouch reads, “Life Doesn’t Come with a Manual, It Comes with a Mom”. I think that’s so true about Moms (and Dads).

Spa Service Gift Card

Ok, I would love this anytime of the year, but this is a nice way to let Mom know you know she works hard and deserves a pampering break. SpaFinder gift cards never expire but they can’t be used everywhere, so check first to see what is available where your Mom lives (or where she will be on vacation).
