With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, many of our celebrations are sure to look a bit different this year. Due to visitation restrictions at her community, I won’t actually be able to visit my mom in person this year. And while that is certainly disappointing, I know these restrictions are helping to keep her safe and healthy, so I know that ultimately it’s for the best!
Instead of feeling sad about not being able to celebrate with my mom in person, I’ve been busy thinking of gifts I can drop off for her to lift her spirits. And since I’m sure I’m not the only one who will be dropping off a gift for mom this year, I wanted to share some of my Mother’s Day gift ideas with you in today’s post! :-)
I also put together a couple of free printables for you that I think will come in handy as you put together the perfect gift for your mom (or grandma, daughter, sister, etc.) I’ll quickly tell you a bit about the two printable I made for you, and then we’ll dive into 9 easy Mother’s Day gift ideas!

For the woman who loves taking trips down Memory Lane, a memory jar makes the perfect gift! To make one, grab a small stack of decorative paper and a cute jar to put them in.
On each piece of paper, jot down a favorite memory or heartfelt moment, then roll the paper up and place it in the jar. Continue doing this until the jar is full of memories that your recipient is sure to cherish!
2. If She Loves To Cook… A Kitchen Gift Basket
Who doesn’t love a good gift basket? :-) If your mom loves to cook, pick out a few kitchen tools and gadgets she’d like and arrange them in a gift basket or box. Add some ribbon and a card, and it’ll be ready for gifting!

4. If She’s A Bookworm… A Book Lover’s Gift Basket

Start with a book she’ll enjoy, then add a cute mug, a bag of coffee or tea, a nice candle, etc. This is a cute way to give her everything she needs for the a perfectly cozy reading marathon!
5. If She’s All About Comfort… A Pair Of Slippers
Inspiration from Pretty Providence
Here’s a perfect gift for the mom on your list who hasn’t worn jeans since early March! Pick a nice pair of slippers she’s sure to love, then fill them with a few smaller comfort items (like candy, a new nail polish, lip balm, a gift card, etc.)
Tie the slippers together with a length of gift ribbon, and you’re done!
6. If She Can’t Wait To Travel Again… DIY Luggage Tags
Inspiration from Lovely Indeed
Make a customized luggage tag for the mom on your list who can’t wait to travel again! Start with a basic luggage tag, then use paint and a bit of painter’s tape to create a fun design. (I mean, who can resist polka dots?) :-)
7. If She Loves Baking… Homemade Vanilla Extract
As far as gifts for bakers go, baking ingredients like vanilla extract are a no-brainer! And if you have an Instant Pot at home, you can make homemade vanilla extract more quickly and easily than you can imagine! Now that’s a gift that won’t go to waste. :-)
8. If She Needs A Spa Day… A Spa Gift Basket
Inspiration from Mom 4 Real
Give Mom the gift of self-care this year with a quick and easy spa gift basket! Start with a small box or basket, and fill it with a few items she can use during her next at-home spa day, like a nice new towel, some sheet masks, her favorite candy, and a sachet of bath salts. (For more inspiration for your spa gift basket, check out my DIY spa guide here!)
9. If She Has A Green Thumb… A Garden Gift Basket
Inspiration from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs
If Mom can’t wait to start her spring planting, give her a garden gift basket this year! Use a small flower pot as your “basket,” then add seed packets, gardening tools, a new pair of gloves, some plant markers, and more.
Finish off your gift basket by adding a small jar of my homemade gardener’s hand scrub. I’ve been using it for years to scrub my hands clean after working in my garden, and nothing else works as well as this stuff does!
