2. A new mug

My kids often get me a new mug for Mother’s day and I cherish each one. Some of my favorite mugs are those found at DaySpring . They have a great selection of mugs in the $15 and under range including travel mugs.

I have recently fallen in love with  ePantry scented candles. The Maple & Cinnamon Spice one makes your home smell like you are baking cookies. These are pure soy candles, scented with essential oils. I love them because they don’t trigger my migraines like many scented candles do.  If your not an ePantry member you can find more information about the company in my post about why I love ePantry.( If you should sign up you get $10 off your first order when you sign up through my referral link).

Another great brand of  scented candles is Mrs Meyer’s which you can find on Amazon and use your Swagbucks earned gift cards to purchase. (psst….instGC is another great place to earn Amazon gift cards)

Most moms love to write in a journal, whether it is just notes they need to remember or their deepest thoughts. Dayspring has a great collection with many under $15 including this Hope Shines Through journal .


5. Books

Is your mom a bookworm? If she is she would probably love a gift card to Amazon that she could use to either fill her kindle with new reads or order real touch and feel paperback and hardback books, depending on what she prefers.

Amazon makes it easy to personalize and deliver your gift card purchases. You can either send her one directly to her email inbox or create your own card and print it out to give it to her. You can even make it with your own picture on it.

 6. A Tervis Tumbler

  • Keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold
  • Co-polyester BPA and Melamine free construction
  • Microwave, freezer & dishwasher safe
  • Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee
  • Made in the USA

It seems like everywhere I turn I see a mom with a Tervis tumbler in hand. There are so many different wraps to choose from too you are sure to find a cup that your mom will love.

Cents of style has a great selection of costume jewelery with many pieces $15 or less. The stone necklace pictured is just $9.95 and comes with earrings to match.

8. Chocolate

There is a rare mom out there that doesn’t like chocolate but I think it is safe to say that the other 95% of moms LOVE chocolate. Ghirardelli squares is one of my favorite chocolates to receive as gifts because it isn’t something I would splurge on for myself.

If your town has a local chocolate shop you might want to check out their selection as usually freshly made chocolate is the best treat around.

9.  Luxurious Bubble Bath

The key word in the title is “luxurious” don’t get mom a $1.99 bottle of generic brand bubble bath, get her one that smells amazing as she is.  I haven’t personally tried this deep steep brand but the reviews on Amazon make me want too! There are other scents too like,  Tangerine Melon and Grapefruit and Bergamot.

  1. Love these ideas. I’m definetly into flowers and chocolate.

  2. Coffee mugs and candles are my favorite! I am looking for many similar items for my local Chicago gift guide.

  3. Oh, I could love all of these! Especially that journal, chocolate, bubble bath…oh my!

  4. Great ideas! I always get fresh flowers for my grandmas for Mother’s day (usually from Aldi). And I love DaySpring products, I’ll have to take a look at their mug selection to possibly get one for my mom.
