The Best Mother’s Day Gifts for 2023
If you’re looking for some unique and creative gift for your mother this year I’ve got you covered! Check out what’s on my mother’s day gifts list, I’m sharing gifts to buy as well as DIY!
Let me start by saying that this is a very special Mother’s Day holiday in my life because two of my daughters also will celebrate Mother’s Day!
How exciting is that?
It also means that I also get to celebrate being a Mimi! (Not a grandma lol!)
I’m sharing a list of DIY projects first and then a few items to purchase if you don’t want to DIY or if you just don’t have the time.
I promise that none of these projects involve making over a whole room, they are the crafting kind of DIY’s and they’re really great gifts. I’m also hoping at some point to try making all the things on this list. Definitely goals!
Of course I’ll have to pick something special from these ideas for my mom – who get’s to celebrate being a Great Grammy!
What could be more special than that?

Mother’s Day Gifts to DIY
I'm certain that any mom would love it if you DIY her this gorgeous rattan tea box. I mean it's called a tea box but really it can be any kind of box - like a stash the remotes box, or hide the bills box, or capture the keys box. I bet you can come up with a bunch of other ideas and if you're feeling generous you could also add a surprise inside the box as well.
I know your mom is in need of a spa day. Every mom could definitely use a spa day. You can DIY these shower steamers and give your mom a spa experience in her very own bathroom and I think she will definitely love it!
If I tell you that this one takes less than 10 minutes to make does it sound like an easy craft DIY for you? Isn't it also a gorgeous DIY idea? I might put this one on my list for Mother's Day and for Father's Day!
I love to use beeswax wraps in my kitchen! They work on any size container and they're easy to clean and reuse. They keep me from using plastic wrap on leftovers and that's a win all the way around. My friend Laura has an easy tutorial on how to make up a few of these and I think once you try it you'll be making an entire collection!
If you've never tried to press flowers then you're missing out on some really beautiful art. If you have tried to press flowers you may have also found out that there are lots of ways to dry flowers and not all of them produce great results. Here's an easy to follow tutorial to create unique art for your mom! (We won't tell if you make on for yourself!)
Over on the craft blog we've shared this fun project to make greeting cards. There's a link to the vintage floral art and it's a beautiful way to make unique art and lovely Mother's Day cards. The torn edge is what makes these so unqiue and the price is far better than what you're going to find in a store!
Mother’s Day Gifts to Purchase
Here are a few of my favorite picks to buy this year!
I love a great DIY and I’m definitely a sucker for a keepsake but sometimes times gets short, I run out of supplies or I need to have something shipped and I definitely just want someone else to get it to them straight away.
Here are a few things currently on my list!
The Louis Vuitton City Guide Books
These are at still one of my favorite’s and stay on my list because I haven’t collected them all yet!
I’m not sure I’ll ever make it to all these city’s but aren’t these books just gorgeous?
You know which ones I want right?
I mean I want them all but I’m going to focus on collecting the pink one’s to start with. I’m loving the Fashion Eye series as well and this is definitely a collection that’s going to take awhile to collect!
You know what happens when you start a collection right?
Eventually I’ll have a pretty good stack of these and I’m okay with that.
Dishes from Williams Sonoma
I love a beautifully set table and I’m finding it harder and harder to gather up all the dish designs that I want.
This means I’ve started adding them to my wishlist for birthdays and holidays.
I’m not even that picky – as long as they’re colorful I love them all. I think they all mix and match just beautifully!
Faux Fur Blanket from Anthropologie
I’m sure you’re not surprised to see a hot pink blanket on my list! I mean seriously, a hot pink anything am I right?
But this plush blanket will look great anywhere in my house and if you don’t love the hot pink they’ve got a few other colors to choose from!
Floral Enamel Bracelet
These are something new that I’m currently in love with. Although I’m finding that there are some gorgeous vintage enamel bracelets around as well.
So things that are old have become new again. Again.
Either way, I’d love to have a brightly colored stack of these to wear on my arm!
Custom Family Watercolor Portrait
Etsy is by far one of my favorite places to find all the fun and unique gifts. If I’m looking for something personalized it’s always the first place that I check.
This one is going to take a little bit of time but what an amazing keepsake to have. A custom family watercolor portrait is so very special and I love this idea so much!
This is definitely one of the Mother’s day gifts that will get tears flowing!
This is such a nostalgic and fun gift!
You can load up a viewfinder with your own photo’s and memories and give it as a gift.
I think this would be such a great conversation piece to keep on your coffee table and have it filled with memories from a special event.
Wouldn’t you just love to share something so fun and unique with your friends? It’s definitely a conversation starter.
In case you haven’t heard, pickleball is the fastest growing sport around. It’s one of those great sports that is fun for beginners all the way to the super competitive.
My motto is that everything should be beautiful so why not have a fun pickleball set to use?
Monogrammed Makeup Bag
Yes I probably already have way too many tote bags, makeup bags and zipper bags but I still want another.
Trust me your mom does too!
I have no idea what it means that we keep accumulating these fun little bags but I use them all. Well almost all of them. Would you believe that I’m currently working on retiring some that I’ve had for many many years?
Oh it’s true!
Birth Month Flower Grow Kit
In case you didn’t know this, each month. has its own flower.
They have their own jewels as well but I already knew that. The flower is a new surprise for me.
Did you know that you can get a cute flower growing kit that has the birth month flower? Well that’s a fun and unique Mother’s Day gift for sure!
It’s definitely a step up from a bouquet!
Copper Watering Can
I love a watering can. I also love having them in different areas of my house so that if I decide I need one there’s one nearby.
That means one upstairs and one down. At least, more than likely you’ll find a few in each spot, not to mention front yard and back.
Are you feeling inspired for Mother’s Day gifts now? I hope you found something amazing on here that will help you with the perfect gift to show mom how much you appreciate her this year!
