(StatePoint) No two moms are alike. Whatever her interests, finding a gift that fits mom just right shows you’ve put thought into it, rather than simply choosing something off the shelf.
This Mother’s Day, why not thank Mom for everything she does, with a gift that celebrates her one-of-a-kind personality?
“Most moms don’t pamper themselves a lot, so customizing a gift that speaks to her hobbies and personal style will feel like a real indulgence,” says Amy Myers, vice president of creative services for Things Remembered.
Here are some ideas to help you find the perfect gift:
*Mom that Needs Me Time: When Mom needs to recharge her batteries between play dates and grocery trips, she’ll appreciate a gift that helps her unwind. A gift certificate to her favorite place to relax—a spa, coffee shop or even a bookstore—can be just want she wanted. Or you can hire a cleaning service and babysitter for the day.
*Techie Mom: Maybe she has her own blog, or she’s always first in line to buy the latest tech gadget. If so, look for techie gifts with a personal touch. Nameplates are now available on everything from iPad cases to laptops. And by adding a simple engraving, like “Chief Executive Mother,” you can make the gift more meaningful.
Alternatively, you can look for portable gifts that make her life easier. For example, Things Remembered offers a USB photo keychain that lets Mom keep her loved ones—and her work—with her at all times.
*Matriarch Moms: Proud moms and grandmas love to brag about their families. Between smart phones and computers, photo sharing has never been easier. Grandmothers, however, are often left out in this digital age. Consider researching the family genealogy online and create a family tree. Or you can give a traditional gift a twist by engraving a personalized message on a picture frame or photo album. Some retailers even offer multiple birthstone jewelry as a way to cherish each child.
*On-The-Go Mom: After having kids, it seems like there are never enough hours in the day. For the mom who makes the most out of every second, opt for a practical and portable gift. Tote bags make a stylish gift and are great for pool days or shopping trips, especially when monogrammed with her initials.
Or, to help mom freshen up on the way to her next event, consider getting her a perfume atomizer and matching compact. When engraved with a special message, her one-minute makeover will remind her how beautiful and loved she is.
