Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate and appreciate the most important women in our lives — whether they are moms, grandmothers, aunts or even beloved mentors. Finding the perfect gift for these women can be a daunting task, but there are some tried and true gifts that never go out of style. Here are 14 such gifts that are sure to make your mom feel special and loved.
Traditional single-wick candles are a classic gift for any occasion, and Mother’s Day is no exception. Who doesn’t love them? They are versatile, come in various scents and can be used to set the mood for any occasion. Candles fill a room with fragrance and provide a warm glow that turns any space into a cozy oasis. And even when they are unlit, they make lovely home decor.
2. Custom Candles
Custom candles take the traditional candle gift to the next level. They can be personalized with your mother’s name, an important date or a message. You can even choose a scent and box color. These candles make the perfect sentimental gift that your mom (or another special woman in your life) will cherish for years to come. Whether she burns it or keeps it as a memento, a custom candle is a thoughtful gift that will have a big impact.
3. 3-Wick Candles
Three-wick candles are a luxurious upgrade from traditional single-wick candles. They provide a stronger scent and last longer, making them perfect for setting the mood for a special occasion or creating a relaxing atmosphere in any room. Plus, they are available in larger sizes. They also come in a variety of scents, making it easy to find one that your mother will love.
4. Spa Day
Could your mom use some TLC? A spa day is a perfect option for the mother who deserves a little pampering. Book her a massage, facial or any other spa treatment she desires. Alternatively, help her create a spa day at home by making a gift basket with everything she needs to create a relaxing environment, including candles, bubble bath, face masks and other spa essentials.
5. Personalized Jewelry
Personalized jewelry is a timeless gift that any mother will treasure for years to come. You can choose from a variety of pieces, including bracelets, necklaces or earrings, and add your mother’s initials, birthstone or a special message to make it even more special. There are also pieces that are designed to hold a mother’s children’s birthstones. Known as mother’s rings/necklaces/bracelets, these items carry a lot of sentimental value and are a great option if you and your siblings would like to work together to create a perfect gift.
6. Handmade Gifts
If you’d like to take a more hands-on approach to giving your mom a personalized gift, you’re never too old to make something special for her.
