22 Mother's Day Gift Ideas (That You Still Have Time For)

BlogHer Original Post

As Mother's Day fast approaches, panic begins to set in for men and women alike. We often talk about what we -- as moms -- want for Mother's Day, but sometimes (ahem, last year) we forget that we have moms, grandmothers, friends who are amazing mothers, aunts and so on in our lives. These amazing women deserve our love, our gifts, our appreciation as well. If you've forgotten someone and you're beginning to wonder how you'll carve out time or find a unique gift, I present you these Mother's Day gift ideas.

I hopped around our Network blogs for the past week, checking out what our amazing bloggers are sharing. Every single post I came across had ideas that I would either love as a woman and a mom or would love to give someone that I love as a woman and a mom. Check out these great ideas if you're still stumped.

But since I don't live near my mother anymore (in fact I now live quite far away), I would send something more lasting than flowers. This air plant in a sea urchin is just perfect. It's beautiful, artistic, and it is a plant that lives on the moisture in the air. I don't know, it just sort of seems like a metaphor for motherhood.

Speaking of Etsy, Landeelu of Landee See, Landee Do shared some great gift ideas from her own Etsy shop in a recent post.

this board has been a best seller for a couple of years now. Here's a little secret... we have gotten back reports that moms have CRIED when they open it! Like, real tears cried. So if you want to make your mom cry happy tears this year, this one is perfect! As with ALL our stuff, it's totally customizable as far as colors go. We can even change Grandma to something else if your kids call your mom Nana, Oma, Gigi or anything else!
