Mother’s Day 2018 is less than a week away, and if you’re like us, you may be scrambling to find the perfect unique Mother’s Day gift. If you are shopping for your mom, grandmother, a mother figure, or a new mom in your life, it can be overwhelming to find something they’ll love. This year, go beyond flowers and chocolate and gift the moms in your life with something thoughtful and unique.

Whether you’re on a budget or have saved your pennies to splurge on Mom, here are a few unique Mother’s Day gift ideas:


For the Stressed Out Mom:

spa day

Momming is often more than a full-time job. On top of that, a lot of moms often involve themselves in careers, volunteer activities, clubs, and more. We all know a mom who is involved in everything, which can become exceedingly stressful. Spoil this amazing woman with a relaxing day at the spa. Whether it’s a gift certificate for a manicure or an all-out spa retreat, she will be forever grateful for the gift of relaxation.

For the Creative Mom:

Is your mom into anything crafty? She’ll love a girls night out with you at a paint and sip class! With so many options in the Denver area such as Canvas & Cocktails or Upstairs Circus, you can find a cute project to create while sipping on a beverage.

For the Plant Lady Mom:

hand holding flowers

Grab an eco-friendly plantable greeting card for the plant-loving woman in your life. After she reads the note (or poem!) you wrote her, she can plant the entire card and grow some beautiful flowers. She may get a little sentimental watching the flowers grow and bloom into something beautiful — after all, she watched you do the exact same thing!

For the Adventurous Mom:

road trip

Plan a trip together! Whether it’s a weekend getaway in the mountains or an all-out cross country road trip, she’ll love the entire adventure — but she’ll mostly love that it’s with you.

For the Foodie Mom:


Does your mom love to cook? Give her the latest cookbook from her favorite celebrity chef. If you want to go even further, pick a few recipes and plan a dinner with the two of you. She’ll love learning new recipes, teaming up in the kitchen, and sharing a meal with you.

For Any Mom:

gift basket

If your mom didn’t fit the description for the other gifts, keep reading! A themed gift basket is a thoughtful way to show that you know your mom’s favorite things. Whether she’s a movie fanatic, a beauty guru, a book lover, or has a huge sweet tooth, a gift basket allows you to create and customize a gift with things she’ll actually use. Find a cute basket (or tote bag!) and fill it with things that go with the theme.

We hope you found some ideas that would be perfect for the mother figures in your life. Have some ideas to add? Let us know in the comments!
