If you’re anything like us and thought that we were still in March, then this reminder is for you: Mother’s Day is just around the corner, on May 9th!
No need to panic – we’ve got you covered with five gifts any mother would love to receive.
Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be generic bits and bobs that you gift just because you feel you need to. Like any good gift, they should come from the heart. And Mother’s Day gifts aren’t just limited to your own birth mother – they can be for your grandmother, your MIL, and even your new-mom friends.
This is your chance to show that special matriarch in your life how important she is to you.
We’ve put together a mix of interactive gifts, pretty things she’ll love, as well as some new mom gifts to round things out. Read on for all the giftspiration!
We’ve raved about Crafter’s Box before, and for good reason. Their curated craft boxes include ALL the materials you need to dip your toes into gorgeous new crafts, as well as easy-to-follow tutorials to help you along every step of the way.
For Mother’s Day, Crafter’s Box is putting together crafting bundles. One box includes enough materials for you and mom to craft together. If you’re lucky enough to be with your mother in person this year, you can enjoy an afternoon discovering a new craft together, and creating something you’re proud of. If you’re doing things virtually, they’ll send over the materials separately, and then you and mom can laugh at each other on Zoom as you mess up and try again.
This Dried Wreaths box is the perfect craft to gift. You’ll both come away from the experience with beautiful wreaths that you can decorate your homes with.

This floral bouquet diffuser is the perfect gift if your mom’s house is always filled with the prettiest things. The paper florals look just like the real thing, but do the silent work of diffusing beautiful fragrance throughout the house. And the best part? These flowers will never wilt.
