Mother's Day Gift Ideas That Will Be Treasured
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to consider what your Mom means to you. However, it isn’t always easy to determine what makes a good gift for Mother’s Day. For me, it’s something that will be treasured. It doesn’t have to be a tangible product either; it can just be spending time with her. Whether taking a day trip to one of her favorite places, a day of shopping, a spa day or just making her dinner at her house, the gift of your time and presence is the most precious gift you can give your Mother. However, you probably also want to give her something tangible to show her how much she means to you. Here’s a wide array of gift ideas that are perfect for Mother’s Day, and because they are all personalized in some way, are also surely to be treasured.
A necklace is a popular gift for women of any age, and for Mother’s Day, a necklace is an ideal gift. However, you don’t just want to get her any old necklace that you can buy at the store. No, consider getting her a personalized necklace. There’s a huge variety of styles to choose from, and they can be quite inexpensive when made from materials like stainless steel. Or choose something that is made of a precious metal like sterling silver or even gold or gold plating. Then you can choose a style of necklace for her. There are necklaces that feature wording on a bar or pendant. On this type of necklace, you can have her name engraved or choose a simple phrase like “Love You Mom”. Or choose something more personalized like “For Mom From John”. You can also choose a necklace which features a pendant with a word written in a cursive shape style. This is a nice idea which is highly customized and would surely impress any Mom. You can also choose a necklace with a pendant which is shaped like a heart, circle or rectangle, with which you can have your message engraved.
Lockets are a great gift idea for anyone special to you, but especially for Moms. A locket is special because it is beautiful on the outside, yet has something personal hidden on the inside. When you open a locket, you can reveal a meaningful message, a quote, scripture or other wording. Many lockets also have space for a small picture to be inserted. This is ideal for Mom’s who have lost someone in their lives. They can place a picture of that person to have near their heart whenever they wear the locket. You can also have a small picture of the family placed inside, though there’s usually only room for a small picture of one person. For Mother’s who have sons, daughters or spouses in the military, a locket can be an especially wonderful gift idea since they can place a picture of their military loved one in the locket and keep it close to their heart while they are away. Yet another terrific personalized necklace gift along the same lines as a locket is a dog tag photo pendant. This is a necklace which has a pendant in the shape of a dog tag. The dog tag is an ideal space for engraving a photo. You can have just about any photo laser engraved on the pendant and then include engraving on the back side of the pendant. This style of necklace is usually made of stainless steel.
Like personalized necklaces, there’s a huge array of personalized bracelet options to choose from as well. Bracelets make wonderful gifts for any occasion and of course, for Mother’s Day. They are generally inexpensive and easy to buy, thanks to them being one size fits all. If you are a man who doesn’t have any idea of a ring size or clothing size, then a bracelet is a good choice of gift. You can buy a personalized bracelet in many materials, such as leather, textile, stainless steel, mesh, macramé, silicone, sterling silver and gold. Then you have to choose the style. You can opt for something simple with a band and a faceplate with plenty of room for her name or short wording. Or choose fancier styles which feature a chain with a roomy ID plate for engraving her name or a simple “MOM”.
Every woman loves jewelry, so it stands to reason that a jewelry box would be a good gift idea. Perhaps you’ve noticed that your Mom can only fit some of her jewelry in her current jewelry box? Then a new jewelry box would be a good gift for Mother’s Day for sure. The wonderful thing about jewelry boxes is that you can have them engraved on both the outside and the inside. You can have her name or just “Mom” engraved on the outside and then a special message or remembrance of the date on which you gave it to her and who gave it to her on the inside. Then whenever she opens the box to put in or retrieve her jewelry pieces, she will think of you.
Personalized Picture Frames
No matter how many picture frames someone might have, it’s always nice to receive more. Mother’s always enjoy receiving pictures of their kids and grandkids. When they receive these pictures, they usually put them in a picture frame or in a photo album. You can help her skip a step by giving her a picture already in a nice picture frame. Make it an even better gift by giving a personalized picture frame. The frame can be engraved, embossed or printed with the name of the person in the picture and the date or event it was taken. Or include a special message to Mom in the frame. It can even be a simple “Happy Mother’s Day from Your Name” and include the name of the person and the date when it was taken.
