When I was a child, I loved spending time making gifts for my mom for Mother’s Day. Homemade cards, cookies (especially her favorite, snickerdoodles), story books, jewelry and more. Those little handmade gifts meant so much to my mom and built such a love for gift giving in me. As I grew older, I was able to buy my mom gifts and loved seeking out special items that I knew she either needed or secretly wished she had.

I’m happy to share my list this year with you! It includes a variety of gift ideas from simple and traditional, to more fun, unique and a bit out of the ordinary, to help celebrate our moms and all the amazing women in our lives that make us feel so special.
