Unique and Thoughtful Gifts to Give Your Mom on Mother's Day

Every Mother's Day I really struggle with what to give my mom. I want it to be something she'll actually use and enjoy, but something a little more thoughtful than the standard pedicure gift card or bottle of perfume. I decided that a gift basket is the perfect way to give a great gift but still make it unique. Gift baskets are the easiest gifts to pull together! I like to pick one main substantial gift to center the basket around and then pick a handful of other items to compliment it.

I found my inspiration for these gift baskets, and the main gift included in them, when I was perusing Uncommon Goods for their amazing gift ideas! 

SPA THEMED
Include homemade or store bought bath bombs, luxury herbal slippers, and a gift certificate for a spa treatment

A NIGHT OUT
A gorgeous piece of jewelry, a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant, and movie or theater tickets

BAKING THEMED
New stoneware mixing bowls, a cooking class, and a new cookbook
 
GARDENING THEMED
A succulent wall planter, gardening gloves and a fruit or citrus tree

WINE LOVER
Personalized wine glasses, this wine pairing dish towel and a great bottle of wine!


And don't worry husbands and dads, there are some other great ideas for you here!

I picked this beautiful sari robe for my mom from Uncommon Goods! I know she'll just love it because its bright and cheerful colors and patterns. I'm including a few other fun little gifts (I can't give away all the surprises!)that compliment the robe and complete the gift. 

What are you doing with your mom on Mother's Day this year? Do you have a gift planned for her?
