Mother’s Day Gift Guide
What do you give to the woman that gave you everything for Mother’s Day? Or what about to the new mom that’s figuring things out and falling in love all over again, ready to celebrate her first Mother’s Day? I always find gift giving to be a challenge. Not because there aren’t a million cool ideas out there but because I want the gifts I give to be filled with thought and love and something the receiver will actually want or need. I can spend weeks thinking about what to get someone that’s within my budget and within their needs until it dawns on me, the perfect gift.
I’ve been pulling together ideas of the perfect gifts that are easy to send (since we aren’t doing a lot of in-person interaction these days) to your mother or the new mother in your life. Whether you choose one of these gifts or they spark a new idea for you, I hope you find the gift that feels perfect for the women in your life.
Gifts for Your Mom
New Art – $9.99+
You know what my mom asked for this year? A new mailbox. Not because she couldn’t go to the hardware store and buy one, but because since I was 8 I’ve been painting her mailbox for her and it’s time for a new one. Bring new life to your mother’s home or office with some fresh art. Society6 is a great place to start and I’ve even got a special collection made just for mother’s day! Explore My Collection.

Photos From Artifact Uprising – $9-$149
If you can get hands-on some of their favorite family photos, consider creating an album for the new mother in your life or getting some photos printed for them to hang in their home. It’s amazing how much photos mean to us and how we so often forget to fill our own homes with them. If you can’t get photos for them, consider getting them a gift card for them to choose their favorites and get high-quality prints from one of the best printers around. Explore Prints.
