gift guide containing creative ideas for mom (mother's day)

This will not look like your typical list of gift ideas for mom. I don’t give two craps about fashion. I would rather be stabbed in the eye with a spork than shop for purses. And a DIY at-home spa gift set makes no sense when I can’t fold my 6-foot self into our little bathtub.

One year I bought myself a clothesline, and to this day I still consider it the best Mother’s Day gift I have ever received. From myself.

And since you can’t put silence, not being touched/sneezed on, or just being alone for six hours on a gift guide, I present these unique gift ideas for mom.

Unique Gift Ideas For Mom – Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

  1. I have this bird with a french fry sign up in my Harry Potter sewing closet and I love it. It used to hang in my office for years and it never stopped making me smile.
  2. Also in my sewing closet is this hilarious chickens cross the roads sign.
  3. How about an adorable metal water bottle made in the USA (here in Washington to be exact) to keep her hydrated? There is a chance I am addicted to these Liberty Bottleworks water bottles as we have oh, I don’t know, maybe 10. They come in super adorable designs and you get to support an American business.
  4. I would tread lightly with an Instant Pot. There is nothing worse than being given a gift that basically says “now you can cook food for me faster”. However, this would be the perfect gift if your mom has been hinting and claiming to want an Instant Pot for a long time.  If she truly wants one it would be amazing. If she has never mentioned it before, stay far away.
  5. Fitbit– approach this one really carefully. You don’t want your mom to think you think she needs to lose weight or to get into shape. Because that makes you a giant tool. But if she has been dropping hints or constantly mentioning getting a Fitbit, this could be a great present. I have the Fitbit Alta and love that it is cute and has a small profile. You can also get more fashionable bands to change up the traditional fitness tracker band.
  6. I’m not much for jewelry (I hardly ever even wear my wedding ring), but I really love this little bird necklace from Uncommon Goods. It is sweet, subtle, and doesn’t scream “HEY PEOPLE I AM A MOM”! <—the bags under my eyes and pathetic breasts advertise that effectively enough.
  7. Shopping “trip” with ThredUp. Have a mom who hates shopping, dislikes the ethical practices of fast fashion, but um, needs some new clothes? ThredUp is the answer for all of those things. It takes all the best part of thrift shopping but makes it clean and done in the comfort of your own home. They have clothes, purses, and shoes at thrift store prices without the icky thrift store smell.
  8. These super cute slip-on shoes are hands down the most comfortable casual shoe I have ever owned. I know so many of my readers have purchased them because I get photos and messages saying “thank you soooo much”; they are THAT comfy. In addition to the comfort level, they’re adorable, fun, and come in so many different styles.
  9. Nothing says “thanks for putting up with my crap” like a quality pair of muck boots. I’ve had my Bogs boots for almost six years now and I just got my first crack in them a few weeks ago. I’m not sure how many miles I have on these things but it is definitely an excessive number. I wear them to take care of our chickens and when I am working in the garden. I can wear them comfortably for hours at a time without my feet getting too hot or hurting.
  10. Blessed with a Type A organized mom in your life? You’re welcome fate. Must be nice to be one of the only kids who knows where their toys, clothes, and backpacks are at all times! Since you spent so much time destroying your mom’s vehicle, how about saying “I’m sorry I got that speck of dirt in your clean car that one time” with this bitchin trunk organizer. It truly owns the heart of anyone who has it in their meticulously clean car.

  1. These are some great ideas. However, ThredUp doesn’t offer gift cards. Under their FAQ section: Does thredUP offer gift cards?
    Currently, gift cards and gift certificates are not available on thredUP. But, by referring friends and family, you can receive shopping credit!

    I know because I was going to ask for a gift card for my birthday.

    • Well fart. I guess I should have researched that better. A few of my favorite tops are from ThredUp and I was so excited that I put it on there. I’ll need to edit. Thanks for catching that Tiffany.
