12 Gifts Your Mom Will Actually Want This Mothers Day

1. Blush Worthy Brushes

Make Mom blush (literally) with a new makeup brush kit.  MAC and Sephora have a variety of options for different price ranges.  But don’t overlook Target’s Sonia Kashuk cosmetic line which is only $18!

2. Alpaca Bag

With her new brushes in hand, Mom will be ready to pack a bag… an adorable alpaca make up bag that is. Maybe  Alpacas aren’t Mom’s thing?  No worries! There are other cute designs to choose from as well. Check them out here.

3. Change It Up

Here’s a “change” of pace for a Mother’s Day gift.  Give her a cute coin purse to keep all that annoying loose change organized and out of the bottom of her purse. These adorable purses are found on Etsy.

4. Tea For Bath and Me

Want an alternative gift to bath bombs and bath bubbles?  Try tea baths!  Not only do they smell nice, but the essential oils they contain will have added aromatherapy benefits. This will definitely have mom feeling like she’s at the spa!

5. Don’t Be “Caddy!”

While Mom’s soaking in her new tea bath, give her the ultimate at-home spa experience with a brand new bath caddy.  She can read, sip a relaxing drink, and keep other small items nearby without having to leave the comfort of the warm water, because who really wants to do that?  Find the product from Paper Source.

6. Defuse With A Diffuser

Let Mom defuse this Mother’s Day with an essential oils diffuser.  These amped up humidifiers release oil molecules into the air that create a relaxing, therapeutic environment.  Mom will be zen before you know it! Young Living Essential Oils has a great line of diffusers here.

7. LiMITTless Baking!

If Mom is a baker, she’ll love getting a double oven mitt!  They provide all around coverage as you pull those hot pans and trays out of the oven.  Find some cute options here.

8. Don’t Be So Dramatic!

The older I get, the more I like to give experiences rather than things for gifts.  I think Mom prefers it too!  Show Mom how much you love to spend time with her by getting her tickets to a local play or show.  Check out local events websites or visit here to look up the closest Broadway show playing nearest you.

9. Flower Power!

Instead of giving Mom a short lived flower, like everyone else this Mother’s Day, show her that your love is more than just temporary with a garden box.  Mom can grow whatever she’d like and be reminded of what she means to you every time she gardens.  Now that’s some blooming flower power!  Buy garden box kits at your local home improvement stores or check out this DIY tutorial from Ana-White to make your own.

10. Stir the Pot

Let Mom get her inner chef out by giving her free cooking classes.  Better yet, sign up to take the classes with her.  Not only will you get to spend some time together, but you’ll both learn some new skills to make tummies happy, too.  This gift will be sure to stir (literally)  the Mother’s Day gift-giving pot!

11. Movie Madness!

If Mom would prefer a gift she can enjoy at home, consider getting her a movie subscription card.  Throw in some bags of popcorn, a new blanket and you’ll be set for some fun nights at Mom’s house!  Visit the Netflix and Hulu websites for more info about movie subscriptions.

12. It Runs in the Family

I’ve saved my favorite idea for last.  In fact, this is what I’ll be giving my mom for Mother’s Day this year…  Give Mom the gift of family by buying her a DNA testing kit.  Ancestry.com offers a by-mail DNA kit that tests 26 ethnic regions from around the world to give you the most precise understanding of where you come from.  You’ll learn exactly what percent of your DNA comes from specific parts of the globe.  Take the DNA test for yourself and have a DNA reading party with Mom once the results come back!  Is it Mother’s Day yet?  I can hardly wait!
