Travel Mug With Ladies on Dock

With Mother’s Day being just two weeks away (Sunday, May 14th), you might be wondering what you can do for that amazing mom in your life to show her your love and appreciation.

 Luckily, we’ve done all of the brainstorming for you! We have carefully curated this ultimate Mother’s Day celebration guide to inspire really thoughtful gift ideas and activities for every type of mom and for every type of budget. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with just sending her some classic Mother’s Day flowers. But if you really want to make this year more meaningful and memorable, read on to discover some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas of 2023. 

Create a Scrapbook or Photo Album

Creating a book of memories is a great Mother’s Day gift if you’re on a budget. It’s both inexpensive and extremely thoughtful. Choose 15-20 photos of your favorite memories with your mom and put them inside a small photo album or scrapbook to gift to her on Mother’s Day. This will surely bring a huge smile to her face, and perhaps a tear to her eye as she relives some very happy memories with you.

New Mom Survival Kit

If you’re looking for the perfect gift to get a brand-new mom, look no further. New moms need all the help they can get. Make their first-ever Mother’s Day a special one by creating a mommy survival kit. In it, you can give them all the things they need to thrive in motherhood and remind them to take some time for a little self-care every once in a while. Here are some great ideas for what to include in the survival kit:

  • Pre-made dinners
  • Dry shampoo
  • Nursing pillow
  • Bath bombs
  • Tea blends that promote lactation and post-partum recovery
  • Gift cards for food delivery services
  • Gift certificate for a house cleaning service

Cook a Special Meal

This one might seem like a typical Mother’s day cop-out, but there are things you can do to make it so much more special and unique. Try thinking of some foods or meals that she absolutely loves but doesn’t get to have often. Maybe make her that favorite meal or treat from her childhood that she always talked about. Making the meal very personal and thoughtful will certainly touch her heart and make her feel special. Plus, she doesn’t have to lift a finger!

Make a Gift Basket

Who doesn’t love a personalized and hand-crafted gift basket full of their favorite things? This year, make Mom a beautiful basket full of everything she needs to relax and unwind because she deserves it. Fill the basket with things like her favorite snacks, some high-quality chocolate, cozy socks, wine, and maybe a gift card for a massage or spa treatment.

Give Mom the Day Off

It seems so simple, yet it’s so impactful. Moms work so hard and rarely get a day fully to themselves to do whatever they like. Make Mother’s Day an opportunity for her to do just that. No chores, no responsibilities, and no kids! Just a whole day for her to pamper herself, go shopping, or do absolutely nothing but rest.

Write a Thoughtful Letter

Celebrating mother’s day doesn’t always have to be about buying expensive gifts or planning an elaborate day of activities. Sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones that come from the heart. This Mother’s Day, write your mom a letter of gratitude. Tell her how much you appreciate her and everything she does for you and your family. Gratitude is a gift worth more than gold which is why this gift is perfect for those on a serious budget. The only thing this gift will cost you is a little bit of time.

Make Her a Playlist

Music is a great communicator and has the amazing ability to bring people together. Connect with your mom in a unique way this Mother’s Day by creating and sharing a custom playlist of songs you know she loves and/or have a special significance to her. She’ll love that you remember the little things about her.

Help Mom Out With Her To-Do List

There’s always an endless number of things that mom has on her to-do list. Maybe there’s been a few big tasks she’s been putting off like painting a room or planting flowers in the front yard. Whatever it is, make time this Mother’s Day to help her accomplish something that she’s been wanting to do. Not only will you relieve some of her stress, but you’ll get to spend some quality time with her while you do it.

The Perfect Mug

The best gift money can buy for all the coffee and tea-loving moms out there is a ThermoJoe. Our Travel Mug is perfect for busy moms who drink a lot of coffee and need to keep their coffee hot for hours on the go. If she’s the type of person that nurses on a small cup of coffee or tea throughout the day, then the Desk Mug is right for her. Whichever you choose, Mom will absolutely love the fact that she never has to worry about her beverage going cold ever again.

The Thought That Counts

Whether you’re celebrating your own mom, the mother of your children, your grandma, or all of the moms in your family, this list has a little something for everyone. Mother’s Day doesn’t always have to be about extravagant gifts or the cliché bouquet of flowers. The best Mother’s Day gift is one that comes from the heart. Switch things up this year and surprise the mom in your life with something unexpected and thoughtful.

On behalf of everyone at Thermojoe, we wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible moms out there. We hope your day is filled with all the love and appreciation you so deserve.
