Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! If you haven’t gotten mom a gift yet, chances are you either forgot about the holiday or are struggling to find the perfect thing to give the woman who gave you life. We’re here to help! 

Since handmade crafts and hand-picked dandelion bouquets only pass as “gifts” when you’re a kid, we’ve found five great items that moms will actually want for Mother’s Day. Here they are, in no particular order:

1. A coffee date

Every mom could use some “me-time,” and what better way to spend a morning than sipping her favorite latte? Give mom a gift card or offer to join her for a breakfast date!

2. Practical jewelry

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but every mom knows that fine jewelry isn’t always the safest thing to wear around kids! If you’re gifting a mom with little ones, think about surprising her with more practical items like lightweight leather earrings or a versatile wooden bead necklace.

3. A market tote

Mother’s Day kicks off the summer, and what mom doesn’t love heading to the local farmer’s market on a sunny Saturday? Give her a trendy bag to carry her finds!

4. Rest & relaxation

It isn’t often that moms get to enjoy peace and quiet, so when they do have a few minutes to steal away, it needs to be perfect. Get the mom in your life a great book and her favorite scented candle – then give her a bit of extra time for R&R on her special day.
