For The Mother That Loves The Beach

Let’s be real, who doesn’t love spending their time at the beach? There’s nothing quite like relaxing on the sand and hitting the water for a refreshing dip. If your mom heads to the beach every chance she gets, give her a gift that she will use on the beach.

Several ideas can come to mind. A useful beach towel, maybe you can find one that has fringe if your mom is a little frilly. Or perhaps one that has bold stripes if your mom is more conservative.

You can find many beach towels that say personality. Great surf shops like Hobie’s have an ample supply.

Another great choice is Sunglasses. Maybe you could even take her to a great sunglass store and help her pick out a pair that fits her personality.

Sunglasses can be difficult when you are choosing by yourself. You always need that 2nd opinion. This is another way to celebrate her unique style.

An unusual but practical gift for mom is organic sunscreen. Thinking about her wellbeing and how she loves to take care of her skin some organic sunscreen is a perfect gift. Look for a high SPF percentage. This gift might not shine personality but it does show you care.

What is she going to put all these beach accessories in? How about a super chic super cute beach bag. There are so many cute ones.

Take into account how much your mom takes to the beach and get the appropriate size. Make sure you pick one that fits her size and again her awesome personality.

A great idea would be to put all the fun beach day gift ideas inside the beach bag and then present the whole thing as a super duper beach gift. Maybe add a bow on top and some tissue inside to add to that festive feel.

This May 12thgrab your mom, and all your beach essentials and head to the sand!  There’s nothing like spending time catching up under the shade with a beautiful view of the ocean. A great beach destination is Laguna Beach. A place that has lots of tide pools and beautiful coves.

Think about maybe making the beach day into a picnic.

For The Mother That Loves The Outdoors

Make a plan to get outside with your mom this Mother’s Day! Fresh air heals the soul so for the mom who loves to spend her time at the park or hiking around. Make an outdoor adventure easier for your mom.

A great gift for the outdoors mom is a fanny pack so she can hike around and have a place for her water and cell phone. If the fanny pack isn’t her favorite look how about a nice lightweight backpack? They also make great hiking backpacks that hydrate called Camelback.

What better way to celebrate your mom this year than doing what she loves? Head to the nearest park or her favorite trail and spend quality time enjoying each other’s company.

Laguna Beach has wonderful hiking trails in the canyon. They are very easy access and just the right amount of exercise. The views are absolutely stunning.

For The Mother That Loves To Garden

Is your mom’s house a beautiful garden oasis filled with incredible flowers? Think of the time that your mother spends pruning and planting. Think maybe Home Decor. Get her a beautiful vase to display her flowers in.

Another garden lovers great gift would be a basket filled with hybred seed and maybe some seed starter trays. Adding in a small bag of organic planting soil would also be a plus.

She could also use a new pair of garden gloves. And maybe even some extra garden tools. Think about  spending the day helping her in the garden. Go to a nursery purchase some items and then go to her home and plant away!

Not only are you making the garden look nice you are spending that quality time outdoors in a place she loves.

Maybe your mom isn’t the best gardener but wants to be. You could arrange some planting classes at a local nursery. You could also purchase some books on the best gardening techniques.

For The Mother That Loves To Cook

There’s nothing like a mother’s cooking. If your mom loves spending her time creating various concoctions in her kitchen then celebrate her passion! With her love of cooking, I’m sure it’s difficult to find a kitchen tool that she doesn’t already have. So think outside the box!

Sneak into her kitchen and maybe find a kitchen tool that looks warn out or just very used. Make a not of that and get her a “new” one. Most moms won’t buy themselves a new version  of something they already have.

A citrus hand pressed squeezer is a tool that gets used a lot and because of the citrus acid it does start looking very used easily. I also think a new skillet is alway great. Skillets get used a lot and can get scrapped up quickly.

Another great kitchen tool is the garlic press. There are so many varieties to choose from you can go to an expert like Williams Sonoma and get there opinion. Even a Williams Sonoma gift card is good idea. Maybe wrap the gift card in a cute dish towel.

Oh and there you go, new dish towels. Every good cooks loves new dish towels. Throw the old into the rag pile and use the new! Make sure you keep with her kitchen color scheme when picking out a nice set of 3.

How about picking up a meal to prepare that would use some of the tools you got for her as a gift and go to town cooking something together? You could look for a fun new recipe that you have been wanting to try. Something that is out of your normal cooking boxes. Cooking together is a great activity that can make memories forever.

For the Mother that Likes Quiet Time

Does your mom like to curl up on the couch and spend time alone? Well there are great gifts for you mom. Find a book that is something you think would interest her and pair it with a box of exotic yummy teas. Even add a cheesy coffee mug that says I love mom.

Another great gift idea for the indoor mom is a big fuzzy throw for the couch. One that feels super soft and super yummy.  Then maybe add a nice foot massage machine that she could plug in and relax while watching a movie on T.V.

Lets not forget about a fun puzzle. Puzzles are wonderful because they stimulate the mind and are fun to accomplish. Find a puzzle that is a beautiful scenery of a place she might want to go.

Now a days there are links to retail sights that will take a photo you submit and make a puzzle out of it. Find a favorite photo that your mom loves and make a puzzle out of it. A great idea is if she has a pet that she love. Make a pet puzzle!

This Mother’s Day remember to appreciate the time you spend with your mom! Thank her for everything she’s done for you and celebrate what she loves! Whether you get her a special gift  or a card, the quality time will be the cherry on top! Hope this helps with your Mother’s Day gift ideas. Oh and don’t forget your mother in law!!!
