There is one relationship that scores above all others on this Earth: the relationship between a child and mother. There are many reasons for why this is so: mothers are the emotional backbones of the family, they make sacrifices so that our lives are better and they forgive our silly mistakes. Even the decisions your mom made when you were growing up that you didn’t like made you a better person — your mom taught you to be a functioning adult, and without her support, strength and boundaries, you wouldn’t be as successful as you are today. We all know Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to show Mom just how meaningful she is, but we can get caught up in our hectic lives and before we know it, the holiday is upon us!

Unfortunately, these city dinner cruises are only for those in or near the coast, so for those who are landlocked, think of a similar idea: spend a day with your mom going to the nearby aquarium or zoo, go see a movie and go shopping, or go on a mini 3-day road trip to the nearby mountains! Whatever it is, spend some time with her, bond, and make some memories you won’t soon forget.

Personalized Mother’s Day Gifts
Sure, you could get your mom a generic, standard gift this Mother’s Day, but nothing shows how much she means to you quite like personalized gifts. With personalized gifts for mom, you have to put a little extra effort in, but that extra effort goes a long way. It’s easy to buy chocolates or flowers for your mom, but consider the look on her face when she rips off the wrapping paper and finds a blanket made of your own family photos, or a necklace engraved with your own handwriting meant only for her. Everyone else will have to step up their game because your personalized Mother’s Day gift for mom will definitely be her favorite.
In general, photo albums make for great gifts for mom: you can flip through them together, reminiscing over the lovely times and even become inspired to make plans for new adventures in the future! This personalized poem photo album takes the generic photo album up a notch: you can choose up to 9 different poems or write your own! This is by far one of the most meaningful Mother’s Day gifts out there, for sure.
Jewelry for mom is always a great option! There are so many options with jewelry depending on what style of jewelry and what color metal is her favorite. However, the great thing about this rose gold handwriting necklace in particular is that you can customize it with your own handwriting. Have a special message you want to share with your mom? Have it engraved in your own handwriting on a necklace she can wear every single day. Check out the entire Handwriting Necklace Collection for more ideas!
This photo tile plush blanket is seriously one of the best gifts for mom on Mother’s Day you could get her. Not only is it a fluffy blanket that she will love because she snuggle up under it, but it also has the faces of all those who are close to her. Though she’ll want to keep it looking nice and in tip-top shape, she won’t be able to keep herself from cozying up underneath it each and every night.
For the wine-loving mom, this is an irresistible gift. Not only can you encourage her to relax with this practical gift, but you can also personalize it with a special message! This way, she knows it was made just for her and she will cherish this gift. Just wait and see: this will become her new favorite wine glass.
Take this gift a step further than just the personalized ceramic dish: while the gift itself is great on its own, consider spending an afternoon cooking with your mom.

Not only does this wooden Mother’s Day card make for a great card for your mom, but it is also a wonderful keepsake!

However, with this wooden card, your mom will appreciate its craftsmanship and will be sure to keep it on the mantel as a special keepsake.
Does your mom love Star Wars? For the quirky Star Wars fan, this is the perfect Mother’s Day card! No need to get a super serious card: make your mom laugh this Mother’s Day with a character only half as wise as your mom. (This also makes for one of the best Mother’s Day gifts from son!!)
