Mommy the Journalist's Mother's Day Gift Guide

by - May 05, 2018

Moms. They do it all and then some, constantly putting others needs before their own. One day every year is set aside to recognize how amazing our mamas are. This year, the National Retail Federation estimates $23-billion will be spent on Mother's Day. If you're stumped about what to buy, I've rounded up 32 ideas for less than $100.

Jewelry is the most popular Mother’s Day gift. If you’re looking for something sentimental, check out this handwriting bracelet or these personalized initial bracelets.

About a third of moms say what they'd really like to receive is a gift of experience, like these cooking and craft classes by Michael's. Prices vary depending on what you choose.

Raise your hand if your mama is the hardest working person you know. Let her show off all that awesomeness with this wonder woman tee. And we all know mama knows best. This tee will just remind everyone else. And just for fun – I love this sassy pin.

For the fashionista mom, why not a pair of tassel earrings or fun slide sandals? Her ears and feet will thank you.

I don't know a mom who wouldn't love a relaxing spa day. You can give her one at home. All you need are some bath bombs, a bathtub caddy so she can keep her book and/or wine glass dry, and some cute and comfy PJs (I like this top and bottom set). Round it all out with one of these beauty boxes and mom's all set.

Make the rare occasion when mom gets to sit down a little more comfortable with some chic pillows and a cozy blanket. I love these round and rectangle velvet pillows and this striped throw.

For the mom who’s super organized or maybe needs a little help in that department, check out this pretty mail organizer to keep the kitchen counter clutter free. And she’ll never lose her keys again with this stylish tracker.

For the mom who can’t leave the house without taking, well, the whole house with her, consider this stylish straw tote. Then there’s this library card tote for those bookworm moms. And what about the mom who hates lugging a big bag around? For her, check out this sleek fanny pack.

Is your mom always in the kitchen? Consider this pretty little apron, unique measuring spoons, and cute floral canister. For the mom who's looking to up her cooking game, check out this indoor herb garden. A set of these pretty bottle stoppers is perfect for the mom who likes a glass of wine (or two or three). And for the mom who doesn't have time to cook, there's always the instant pot. Don't forget a recipe book!

If none of these ideas is up your alley, you can't go wrong with family pictures, especially when they're in this heart-shaped collage or this pretty frame. And this book is sure to remind mom just how special she is.

And finally, here are three gift ideas that are just for fun. Some pretty string lights to brighten up mom's favorite space; a table top corn hole game to make your next family dinner a little more entertaining; and some booty bands just because.

This post is not sponsored. I compiled it by looking through the Mother's Day sections of several of my favorite stores and magazines. I hope this list helps you find the perfect gift for your mom! Moms, let me know in the comments what's on your wish list this Mother's Day.
