Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Happy Mother's Day

Don’t forget Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13.  You should have plenty of time to make and receive an Amazon order for your mom or wife if you do it soon.  Here are a few of my favorite things or “I wants” to get you started thinking…

Face to Face: Praying the Scriptures for Intimate Worship

face to face devotional I have been going through this book in my quiet times and it has been awesome.  Face to Face guides you into richer, more effective devotional times. It is filled with adaptations of Scripture that turn Bible passages into prayers that bring you face to face and heart to heart with God. I love that this book gets me in the word and into prayer at the same time. It’d be a great gift for any mom.



Natural Crochet Toms

I think any mommy would like to dress up their feet with some crochet Toms! I’ve been eyeing these out for a while. I think they are so cute! They would go well with almost any outfit and would be easy to slip on in those busy moments before you have to leave the house.




Adorable iPhone case

Cute iPhone case with hot air balloons

You can make a mom smile on Mother’s Day by snazzing up her phone with some fun accessories. I thought this hot air balloon iPhone cover was adorable.




Magazine Subscription to Real Simple

Real Simple Magazine

I really enjoy my subscription to Real Simple. I’ve found it to be a great resource for home ideas and recipes. I also like that it is something that can flip open during a nap time and zone out of kid mode. A magazine subscription is also a good gift idea for moms because it keeps giving all year long.






Twilight Woods Scented Hand Soap

Bath and Body Handsoap

This is my absolutely favorite scent of hand soap. It smells so good! Every guest that comes out of our bathroom gives their hands a second sniff and asks me what kind of soap it is. I even went so far as to give this to 4 other people for Christmas. It’s that good people.




Bath & Body Works Slatkin Candles

Slatkin Candle

I’m a little bit of a candle snob. I legitimately get upset when I spend money on a candle that later gives me a headache or doesn’t have a good scent. After trying out lots of different brands, I highly recommend the Bath and Body Works Slatkin brand. Every scent I’ve gotten from there, I’ve loved. It is also pretty strong so you can expect the majority of your house to carry its aroma.
 $25 Gift Card (0108)

I like getting gift cards as presents but I like even more when I know some thought and time has been put into my gift. However, when all else fails, a gift card will do. Just be thoughtful about where you buy it from or have a plan on how they are to use it. For example, you could buy an amazon card and tell the mom to buy a book they’ve been wanting to read.  Use gift cards with caution for Mother’s Day. Try to put some thought into it and I promise that your mom will appreciate it even more.

    I had forgotten about that, Julie. I’m so glad you still use it. I do too and love it. I’d love to know how your freezer club is going and what you need help with, btw. Email me if you get a chance. I still want to help!

    Rachel gave me Face to Face about 6 years ago. It is a great book and has really changed my quiet times. In fact, I was reading it this morning. Thanks, Rachel!

    Thanks, Mom. Nice use of the blog comment section, too, so that many can benefit from your idea. 🙂
