Mothers deserve more than just one day a year for their hard work and unconditional love, but it’s important to make them feel special this Mother’s Day. Even if you haven’t had the chance to get something for your mom, you can always call or visit and just let her know how much you love her! Or, if you are heading out at the last minute, try one of these dozen gifts that moms will appreciate:

Homemade Gifts:

Signs of LoveMother's Day image - Red Apple Reading
Decorate a sign for mom, whether it’s a declaration of your love, or a clever saying like, “Home is Where the Mom Is.” Mothers are sure to love the creativity and thoughtfulness.

Painted Pots
Buy some small pots for planting and paint away! Fill with dirt and a flower of your mother’s favorite color/kind and watch her smile light up the room!

Mama’s Mason Jar
Mason jars are all the hype these days – there are so many uses for them! Here is another: fill a mason jar with confetti, tissue paper, and a gift for mom, such as nail polish, lip balm, mini lotions, or even her favorite chocolate will do just fine!

Bake Her Favorite Dessert
Or cook her favorite meal! Mother’s will love the delicious thought that you spent time just for her.

A Heartfelt Card
Sometimes words can say it better than gifts. Grab scrapbook paper, letters, stamps, and any other crafts and make mama a card with a love letter and a thank you.

DIY Picture Frame
We love this idea from BYOU magazine to make a picture frame out of yarn. Don’t forget the picture!

Buy For Moms Who Like to Read:

Coloring Book & Fancy Markers
Help your mother relieve any stress she might have through the art of coloring! Buy a fun coloring book she’ll like and include some Prismacolor colored pencils or pens to spruce up the gift!

If your mama loves to read, she might have quite the collection of books. Help her keep those books straight with some fancy bookends!

Have her try this candle from Bliss Home & Design while she reads.

Check-Me-Out Library Kit
A fun gift from ModCloth your mom will find amusing to use.

You can never have enough! We like these ones from Cost Plus World Market.

A Book!
See what she’s been reading and Google similar titles she doesn’t have already. She’ll love that you know what genre she likes!

Red Apple Reading wishes all mothers young and old a very special Mother’s Day!
