Make Mother's Day Memorable: 10 Unique Gifts for Mom

Mother’s Day is coming up fast, and we want to help you make this year’s celebration one for the record books! Whether you're looking for the perfect gift for the special mom in your life - or -  you're a mom that wants to drop hints of what your kids and spouse can get you this year (smart mom!), we've outlined ten unique gift ideas that are sure to please.

1. CREATE A SLIDESHOW

Chances are your mom absolutely adores sentiment and homemade gifts from the heart. This year, create a digital slideshow on your computer or phone that captures your favorite moments of the year. She will love how thoughtful of a gift this is, and you can email or add the slideshow as a file on her computer so she can watch it year-round. This could also be a recurring gift you do each year, which would make for a very special tradition.

2. TAKE HER TO BRUNCH

Mother’s Day is often one of the days where moms don’t have to stress about what to cook or where to go for food with the family. Treat her to some delicious brunch and bubbly! You can also make an entire day or weekend out of the holiday for her. If you’re looking for a local spot in San Diego, Welk Resorts San Diego is offering a very special Mother’s Day brunch as well as discounts around the resort all weekend long. Book a stay and really enjoy some quality time with mom.

3. SET A DATE

Plan a special day or evening out for you and your mom. Mothers love quality time, and whether you plan a trip to a local garden, take her out for a special dinner, or plan a movie at home where you do the cooking, setting aside a special date will make her feel the love this holiday.

4. WRITE IT DOWN

In a world full of emails, text messages and video chat, it is easy to communicate in quick spurts as often as you’d like. This Mother’s Day, opt for a traditional way of telling mom how much she means to you. Write a letter. That’s right, a good ole fashioned letter that you handwrite and tell her why you love her. This is a sure way to get to her heart and is also a fantastic last-minute gift option if you’re dragging your feet on trying to find the perfect gift.

5. MAKE A SHADOW BOX

Collect some of your favorite photos, ticket stubs, invitations or keepsakes from over the years that are special to you and your mom and create a beautiful shadowbox she can display in her home.

6. CREATE THE ULTIMATE RELAXATION GIFT

Most of the time, moms just want a bit of pampering. Give her the ultimate selfless gift of a pamper basket. Add a candle, magazines, bath gel and lotion, some chocolate and perhaps her favorite bottle of wine or cider with a note to indulge herself this Mother’s Day.

7. GIVE HER TIME OFF

Moms are often juggling a hundred tasks at once all while trying to work, be a good mother, a good wife, a good friend, all while trying to keep her sanity and squeeze in any second for herself whenever possible. The ultimate gift is the gift of time. If you don’t have a big budget, offer to complete a few of her mundane daily tasks so she can go to a workout class or catch up with a friend over coffee while you garden, do a few loads of laundry, take the car to get its oil changed, etc.

8. GO BIG!

Consider going in with your siblings or other family members to gift mom a large present this year. Consider a gift certificate for a weekend away, a spa day at her local favorite resort, or that purse she’s been eyeing all year.

9. GIFT A DATE NIGHT

Get creative and create the ultimate date night for your mom and her man. Whether you send them off to relive their first date, or get them set up for dinner and a movie, she’ll love being able to enjoy her guy (while most likely singing your praises all along!).

10. TAKE HER OUT ON THE TOWN

With so many fun places to go and events to enjoy, mom will certainly love the chance to see a show or live event in her neighborhood. If you’re looking for just the ticket in San Diego, take her to see The MUSIC MAN, one of the most beloved musicals of all time!

Happy Mother's Day!
