Mother’s Day is a week away and we’re all racking our brains for the best way to show our moms how much we love them. Take a look at these ideas for sweet, thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts:
Pick a gift that’s in line with her interests. Does she love to garden? Get her some bulbs and a nice flower pot. Loves to read? Slip a cute bookmark into a new book. She’s into astrophysics, or English literature, or classic cars? Spring for a subscription to a magazine or journal that covers her interests—there’s a publication for everything under (or above!) the sun.
How many times did your mom make you feel warm, safe, and cozy? Return the favor by giving a gift that adds a little comfort to her routine. A heating pad, box of tea, slippers, cute mug, weighted blanket, or massage roller are all good picks.
All those times you rummaged through your mother’s closet or snuck into her makeup drawer...it’s all been leading up to this. Bond with Mom as you style your hair and makeup together, then stage your own photoshoot to commemorate the moment. How about matching headband braids? They’re a sophisticated (read: non-embarrassing) spin on a mommy-and-me look you can wear again and again. Shop Madison Braids here.
Make It a Spa Day
Moms spend so much time and energy taking care of their kids...isn’t it time we let them kick back and relax a little? Give your mom a chance to decompress with a day at the spa. You can book her a massage, give her a gift certificate and let her pick the date, or go the DIY route and put together a kit with candles, face masks, bath bombs, nail polish, and other at-home spa essentials. You know your mom, so you decide if she’d rather a mother-daughter spa day or a rare moment to herself.
No gift list would be complete without the gift certificate option, and for good reason. Gift cards let her make the final choice, ensuring that she won’t have to force a smile when she unwraps your well-intentioned gift. Did you know that Madison Braids does gift cards? Let your mom choose her favorite headband braids or hair care products from our site! Shop now!
Make It Personal
Nothing feels quite as special as something that was designed with you in mind. Create something just for Mom: jewelry or a robe with her initials, a mousepad or calendar with your favorite family photos, or a cute custom print with caricatures of the whole family. You can easily order personalized gifts on sites like Etsy and even Amazon.

Your Presence Is a Gift
As much as she might appreciate a gift, there’s nothing quite like your time and attention to make your mother smile. This Mother’s Day, make a moment together. If you can, grab drinks, go for a walk, or just curl up on the couch and reminisce over the good old days when you were such an angel...right? Be sure to tell her how much she means to you—she might be able to read your mind sometimes, but it’s always nice to hear you say it out loud.
