Mother's Day (May 12) is just around the corner, and here are some fresh thoughtful and unique gift ideas for a variety (wink) of mom's.

1. Silk Pillow Cases

Help keep mom looking and feeling great with a silk pillow case. Silk pillow cases help fight fine lines and wrinkles, have a low moisture absorption to keep mom dry and cool all night, and they help with crazy bedhead. In addition to all those amazing benefits, silk pillows are less likely to collect bacteria and dust mites.


2. Singing Bowl Set

Bring some zen into mom's life with the beautiful vibrations of singing bowls. Moms are no stranger to stress and singing bowls help relieve stress and reduce anxiety and depression. Whether your mom is a spiritual yogi or just starting out, singing bowls are a calming gift she'll love.


3. Garden Pots

Even if mom isn't an avid gardener, a cute planter could just plant the gardener seed. I'd suggest adding a plant or some seeds, a pair of gardening gloves, small gardening tools, plant labels, a nice bar of soap, a natural nail brush, or hand cream to create a gift basket within the planter.


4. Candles

Here are some beautiful candles for all the mom's who are candle fans. (Who isn't a candle fan?) I don't think you can ever go wrong with a scented candle for any gift, but these your mom will be sure to enjoy. I always like to add a candle into a gift set as well.


5. Stylish Organization

Have a mom who is hard to buy for? Get her some stylish storage. Let's face it, we all have something we could organize and I'm sure your mom will love the usefulness and thoughtfulness of helping her get organized. In fact, pair it with helping her organize and she'll really be happy! Bonus, I like to add other gifts (like some of these in the guide) into these as well to really round off the gift.


6. Travel Items

Have a mom who loves to jet set? Or maybe a mom who wants to jet set? Show her you care with some fresh new travel items. Even if she has the basics, there are always new styles and innovations in travel items.


7. Essential Oil Diffusers

Help mom relax with a beautiful new oil diffuser. Diffusers not only fill your space with beautiful scents, they also help elevate your mood. Additional benefits are they help with a variety of ailments, improve sleep, enhance clarity and focus, and can even aid with nausea.


8. Robot Vacuum

Unfortunately, vacuuming is a necessity in all homes, but mom's chores are about to get a lot lighter. Give mom a much deserved break with a new robot vacuum. Below are some great options for every budget starting with the least expensive.


9. To-Go Cups

Mom's are always on the go, so why not get yours a beautiful to-go cup? There are probably as many variations of to-go cups as there are moms, so there's definitely one out there for yours! Better for her health, better for the environment, can't go wrong.


10. Gift Cards

Last, but certainly not least, a gift card. Don't underestimate the power of the gift card. I personally love gift cards, especially from a store I adore. So, if you've got the mom who has everything or who is hard to buy for, go for a gift card. As always, I like to include other little thoughtful items with any gift I'm giving. Pair a gift card with any of the above–you can't go wrong.
