April 21, 2022

Mother’s Day is approaching quickly, so before it’s too late, it’s time to plan the perfect mothers day gift for the mama in your life!  Most of us fall back on the classic gifts, like fancy chocolate, gift cards and flowers, but if you really want to stand out this year, it’s time to step it up.  

As a new mom myself, trust me when I say, putting a little thought and effort into your Mother’s Day gift will not go unnoticed, and she’ll be talking about it for years to come!  Since we’re wedding and portrait photographers here at Kaitlin Mendoza Photography, we have the pleasure of serving a lot of mom’s and want to help you out when it comes to finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift for her!  Today on the blog, we’re sharing 10 perfect gift ideas for every type of mom!

For the stylish mama

These simple yet gorgeous necklaces by Oak and Luna with the first initials of each of her kids names will be sure to bring a tear to your mom’s eye!  It’s stylish, and will go with just about any outfit! You can even customize your necklace with a small diamond, and choose between silver, gold and rose gold- whichever she wears more! I’m putting this one on my list this year!

For the recent mother of the bride

Right after one of our brides has gotten into her wedding dress, we take a few moments to capture her mom buttoning up her dress, fluffing and hugging with happy tears in their eyes.  These are the photos that I know our brides cherish and often are the images that they post on social media to wish their mom a Happy Mother’s Day!  

Printing and framing one of your favorite wedding photos of you and your mom is the perfect mother’s day gift to reminisce on the perfect day that your wedding was, and just how much she means to you!  We love ordering frames for our home through Frame Bridge, and they have a gifting area that have some beautiful and reasonable options!

For the active mama

Whether your mom is into group exercise classes, the Peloton or even a runner like me, the Theragun mini is another perfect Mother’s Day gift idea that she (and her muscles) will thank you for every time she uses it!  The Theragun mini will help get rid of those pesky trigger points, recover quicker after a tough workout, help prevent injury and just feels pretty darn good!  The best part?  You can do it sitting on the couch watching your latest Netflix binge!

For the plant loving mama 

I kill just about every plant that comes in our house, but if your mom has a green thumb, then she may love this beautiful glass plant mister! She will love watering her house plants with this, and it will look gorgeous sitting out as well!  Best part, it’s very inexpensive and you could pair it with a new house plant that any plant lover will love!

Mushroom loving mama

Mushrooms are one of those things, you either love them or hate them!  If your mom loves mushrooms like me, she will love growing her own mushrooms right in the kitchen with this organic mushroom growing kit

For the mom always on her feet

Whether your mom is a nurse, works retail or is just a busy bee, she will adore this foot massager!  It has five different modes and even comes with a heating function to really put her in relaxation mode!  This foot massager could be the perfect mothers day gift for the mom in your life!

For the wine loving mama

Instead of getting her a classic bottle of her favorite wine, give the scent of her favorite type of wine to fill her home with a Rewined candle!  These candles are made in Charleston, where we used to live and I have been obsessed with them ever since!  They have all sorts of fun scents for the wine loving mama, like champagne, pinot noir, rose, merlot, chardonnay, pinot grigio, riesling and more!. Rewind has also recently started a line with popular cocktail scents such as margarita, cosmopolitan, manhattan and moscow mule!  I don’t know about you, but I think I’m ready for happy hour now!

For the mom who’s always on time

Apple watches not only help you stay up to date with your phone at all times, but they can be a beautiful piece of jewelry as well!  Treat her to a new watch band for the upcoming season that will stand out!  Here is a link to my mom’s favorite brand for Apple watch bands!

For the mom who needs some TLC!

A facial is one of the best things you can do for your skin, and most of us don’t prioritize it!  I recently started getting monthly facials and my skin has been glowing!  My favorite local gal here in Indy is Raye Beauty!  You can click here to grab your appointment!

For the mom who has everything!

This is one of my favorite things to gift my own parents for mothers and fathers day, because they have everything!  Plus, what most moms really want is quality time with her kids, no matter how old they are!  Plan out a specific day date with your mom- maybe shopping in an area with cute boutique and antique shops and lunch reservations at a new restaurant, Top Golf and happy hour or brunch, Starbucks and pedicures!  You know what your mom enjoys, so choose something that she would love but doesn’t get a chance to do very often!

I hope this has help you find the perfect Mother’s Day gift for the mom’s in your life, or at least has helped spark some ideas!

Your mom will be so grateful that you went the extra mile to get her something that is personal to her, useful and brings her joy! I’d love to hear if this blog was helpful, so as always, send me a DM on Instagram to let me know! And if you’re a mama, Happy Mother’s Day!
