7 Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

7 Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Because your mom isn't a regular mom.

She's a cool mom.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner… and for those of you who didn’t know, this year it falls on May 8th. 

(don’t worry, we always have to double-check the calendar five times every spring too) 

We know we’re not alone in scouring the internet as every Mother’s Day approaches; trying to find something thoughtful while also staying on a budget.  

 We’ve got you covered.

1. Flowers… with a little bit of ✨spice✨

Bring the outside, inside. 

Think big, think colorful. This is one of the easiest ways not to break the bank, and to grab something super last minute if need be. 

But let’s be honest, this is a pretty cliche move.  So let’s add that little bit of ✨ spice ✨. 


Rather than just one bouquet, gift her the monthly (or weekly) surprise of flowers, right to her door.

Here are a couple of our favorite companies: https://www.bloomsybox.com/https://bouqs.com/subscriptions

2. Coffee Mug Warmer

If your mom is a coffee or tea fanatic, this is the perfect gift. 

A mug warmer conveniently sits right on your mother’s desk, nightstand, vanity; wherever she takes her mug of happiness. Us Italians here at Aloe Attiva take our coffee *very* seriously, so we seriously think this is the coolest invention.

3.  Bath Basket

Here’s one you can get super creative with: 

All moms love a good, warm bath. 

And if they don’t, they love a nice, long shower. 

And if they don’t, they definitely love to pamper themselves in SOME SORT OF WAY (c’mon give us something to work with here, Mom) 

Give your mama a basket of Spa Day essentials - from her favorite bath bombs, to her favorite magazines, to a little bottle of red.  You know her better than we do, but we know she doesn’t mind a little excuse for some TLC.

4. New Skincare

Speaking of TLC, let’s talk about the best TLC on the market. 


Some mothers are skincare masters, some don’t know where to start. Thankfully, this is the answer to everything your mom is looking for in the skincare department.

Common themes we hear when talking to women looking to try something new?  Something that is anti-aging, firming, hydration, brightening. And ohhhhh boy oh boy, when we hear those words, we light up. ✨

5. Tile Mate

Your mom is Superwoman. We can’t expect her to have all her ducks in a row allll the time. 

Tiles are probably the greatest invention to hit the market. You can attach them to anything - your keys, your phone, your purse - you name it. Then, she can check the corresponding app to see where she left them when she inevitably misplaces them. 

(it’s okay Mom, we still love you)

6. Custom Family Artwork

Trust us when we say you’re going to make Mom cry with this gift.

With the online world that we’re lucky enough to live in, we have access to some of the coolest personalized products. 

Seriously.. is there anything you can’t customize these days?

Here’s one of our favorite designers on Etsy:

7. Charcuterie Board Basket

We have to admit, we’re maybe a bit *too* obsessed with charcuterie boards here at Aloe Attiva... 

What?! Can you blame us? We’re an Italian company; we can’t help but tear up a bit when we see an exquisite presentation of meats and cheeses. 


This basket is perfect for Mom, especially with summer right around the corner. 


Do it all at your nearest Homegoods, TJMaxx, or Marshalls. They have the cutest cutlery, boards, snacks, spreads, you name it. 

The meat and cheeses? Well you might just have to leave that up to mom. After all, mother knows best.

We are confident that these gifts will impress any mother in your life. 

Now quick! Hit *checkout* on one of these before it’s too late and you're stuck in the hallmark isle trying to find a card to suffice. Again.
