10 Great Mother’s Day Gifts for a Mom that Has Everything

Each Mother’s Day, I’m faced with the same dilemma: “What to get my mom for a Mother’s Day gift?” Because, she pretty much has everything. And even though she has everything, I still want to get her a little something as another way to show my appreciation for all that she has done for me and my family. She has loved us unconditionally and sacrificed unselfishly. And this is why I am glad that Mother’s Day gives us one more opportunity to show just how thankful we are.

So here are a few gift ideas that we have used over the years for the mom that has everything.  Check them out and then leave a few more ideas in the comments below.  Because, God willing, I will have many many more years of Mother’s Day gifts to purchase.

    Although my mom has just about everything, I don't recall her ever taking the time to go a spa.  She is so busy helping everyone else, she does not take the time to pamper herself.  Checkout the local spas in her area and treat your mom to day at the spa.  Photo Credit: Lev Dolgatsjov

    One year, all of my mom's grandkids sent her handmade cards. My sister and I did not even coordinate it. But, her kids and my kids all made my mom cards.  She told us it was the best gift she had ever received. Call all of your siblings and coordinate giving your mom handmade gifts from the kids.  It could be poems, cards, or photo books. Photo Credit:  Elin B

    This is another activity that my mom rarely indulges in...but I know she loves.  I purchased my mom tickets to see the play, The Color Purple, one year.  She and my dad got dressed up, had dinner, and saw the play.  They really enjoyed it. Photo Credit:  Victor Martinez

    Your mom may have everything, but chances are, she does not have a fashionABLE Scarf.  She will love the scarf and she will love the fact that the purchase of the scarf goes towards creating sustainable businesses in Africa. Creating the scarves not only provides jobs to women who have been exploited by the effects of poverty, but the profits from the sales are sent back to Africa to benefit the women.  I was given one of these scarves from the One Moms team…and it has become a staple in my wardrobe this fall/winter season. Trust me, any woman in your life would love to have one and would wear it proudly knowing what it represents. Photo Credit: Image of  Scarf from
