Ideas for Mom

Lacking creativity and inspiration this mother's day?

The trend seems that, every year for the offspring of Mom's everywhere. What to get Mom this year is always the question. There are a few people who are always on point and can come up with the best gifts, but if you are like the most of us, sometimes you may need a little help. Help coming up with a gift that will show mom we realize all that she has done for us and don't take her for granted (even if we do from time to time, it's good to show the perception we don't). Remember she gave birth to you, cleaned you nastiness, chased you all over the world to make sure you didn't kill yourself, and gave up 18 (or more) years of her life to make sure you grew up and were a positive influence to society. She was the one who kissed your wounds when you were hurt and reminded you of how awesome you were when you had a broken heart. The least you could do is show her the same love and affection one day out of the year. First I would suggest watching this video.

Creative Choices

Inspired to do great things for Mom! Now we need to work on what to actually do with that inspiration. Creativity is always great, I'm sure Mom will always love your painting of stick figures with noodles glued to the border of the single best Monet you have ever painted; but let's remember she is a person and has natural needs other than a fridge door filled with your stellar art work.

First thing we must do is narrow down the kind of person your Mom is. Is she a businesswoman, is she a chef, is she a gardener? Yes, I realize she is a mix of all things, but if you could only choose one or two to describe her, which would she be? 

So let's break it down by which group would describe your Mom the most [Not which one you see her as the most, but which one she see's herself as].

Gardener Mom

Spring is here and it's time to start planting. A hobby most mom's find themselves easily fulfilled by. Creating a garden takes more than technique; it takes the right tools and equipment. Give your mom the tools she needs this Mother's day like a pair of new stylish Hunter Welles rubber boots and hand cream, Crabtree & Evelyn Gardner hand therapy, especially made for the gardener in mind.

Tech-Savvy Mom

Keeping up with technology is a job in and of itself. Help mom stay ahead of the game with the latest and greatest technology. Help her keep her phone safe with the new Life-proof case or bluetooth, such as the Jawbone bluetooth.

Chef Mom

Mom is the reason comfort food exists. She can take a bucket of butter and turn it into the best macaroni and cheese ever! But instead of thinking of your stomach, think of Mom this mother's day with a new juicing Greville juice fountain compact electric juice or espresso machine.

Traveler Mom

Does mom like to travel? Does she wish she could spend winter in some warm South American country or see the seven wonders of the world? Well help her out this Mother's day with some gadgets that will make her experiences more memorable. This mother's day get your mom the new Kindle fire HDX or a new Cannon digital camera.


Busy career woman? She has taught you about financial independence and now you can repay her with some simple gifts that will help her confidence. Remember to you she's Mom, but to others she's Boss. Get her some Creme De La Mer Anti-aging Cream and a Tissot Women's Classic Desire watch.

Hipster Mom

Just remember back in the day your parents were cool, or so they tell you! Mom was a free-spirited, tight jean wearing, lover of all things. Now she has become the woman who cleans up after you. Help Mom show that free spirit of hers. Get your mom some sweet Super Panama Sunglasses or a Fuji film Camera.

Yes we celebrate Grandma on Mother's day as well. As if you didn't already know that. She is the one who has put up with you and now gets to spend time with her grandkids.  She is also the one who takes them when you're pulling out your hair. She has always been there for you, so celebrate Grandma. Get Grandma a special gift this Mother's day, get her a One-Year Subscription to the New-Yorker and the new version of Les Mis (Blu-ray).

Fitness Mom

She tries to live a healthy lifestyle and works out when she could be watching TV. She runs marathons every year and makes sure to stay in tip-top shape. Don't forget she used to have to run after you all day. Let her know she's doing great with new fitness gear. Get your Mom a Nike Fuel Band and new Nike Free 5.0+ running shoes to put it to good use.

Eco-Conscious Mom

She takes care of the environment while also taking care of you. She spends the extra time to recycle and sort the plastic from paper. Don't let her hold the weight of the world on her shoulders. Eco-friendly products are all over the place, get her something that shows you care about her and the planet. Get her a Eco-Friendly Bracelet or maybe a Micro-greens grow kit.

Remember this day is for Mom and it's just around the corner. It'll be here before you know it. Don't be the slacker that shows up with a card and a hug full of love. She said she loves it and she'll never ask for more, but be proactive this year and get her something good. She continues to take care of you, take care of her this year.
