Mother's Day Gift Ideas: Editor's Picks

Filed under: , , , , ,

All of us editors here at AOL Shopping -- some of us already mothers -- thought long and hard about the best Mother's Day gift ideas that we could share with you for this year's upcoming Mother's Day on May 8. The mothers in the group thought about what they themselves might like receiving and the just-daughters of the group considered what our own mothers might not only enjoy, but also want to use. That seems to be the way it goes with mothers. Sure, the thought counts for quite a bit, but is it something that she would even like to use? If not, it probably won't be a very happy Mother's Day for her.

So, if your mother (or wife!) has not yet specifically told you what she would like for Mother's Day this year, something from our list of picks ought to make her happy! And, everyone knows that a happy mother makes a happy you! To keep the positive energy flowing, we've even limited our picks to a budget of $50. That means, if you also wanted to treat your Mommy Dearest to a Mother's Day brunch, then you would have enough money left over to do so! With a Mother's Day like that, there's no way she won't feel loved and appreciated.

A Statement Ring. "Jewelry makes a great gift because it's a lasting token, and I remember the recipient each time I wear it. To update my spring wardrobe I'd love a big ring with sparkle or color."
-Clare (mom & daughter)

A Bookrest. "Any mother who likes to read will love the Peeramid Bookrest. Whether she uses it in bed, on a comfy chair or on the floor, she'll enjoy her favorite book and will have a free hand to take notes or enjoy a snack. I love that it's available in many different colors."

It's sure to be a coffee-table favorite."

Scented Body Lotion: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. "I love to smell nice, but spritzing with perfume can sometimes be a tad overwhelming. That is why I love wearing a lightly scented body lotion. 'Flowerbomb' Bomblicious Body Lotion will not only have Mom smelling divine (it has a subtle, fresh floral scent), but it will also help her skin to feel soft and luxurious."
-Marquette (mom & daughter)

A Vintage Apron. "If your mom spends hours in the kitchen like mine does, or if she enjoys hosting dinners and get-togethers, she will appreciate a sassy vintage apron she can show off in front of the guests! Mom can finally protect her clothes while also looking polished as she cooks for, greets and tends to her guests."
-Gina (daughter)

-Clare (mom & daughter)

Edible Arrangements. "My Mom doesn't really like flowers but she really loves Edible Arrangements. The Hearts & Berries has pineapple hearts, grapes and strawberries. Not only is this a great gift idea for my Mom but it'll make a great present for a Mom, Mother-in-law, Grandma or Wife who's watching her waistline!"
-Veronica (daughter)

A Power Tower. "If your mama or wife spends a lot of time in the kitchen, this is just the gift. The gadget is mighty impressive. It can perform multiple functions -- open cans, grate cheese, juice fruits, sharpen knives and open bottles."

A Tennis Skirt. "If your mom is like me, she has secretly always wanted to be a tennis babe. My husband is really good, my girls started taking lessons last summer and I am sure it will be only a matter of time before my toddler son gets in on the action. This summer, I vow to up my game and take lessons. A cute tennis skirt will help me or your mom look the part even if our skills are not quite where they should be."
-Marquette (mom & daughter)

A philosophy Gift Set. "One of the only times a mom can really escape from the rigors of life is when she takes her bath or shower. Help her to enjoy those brief moments even more with indulgent shower gel scents and luxurious body emulsions from beauty brand favorite: philosophy. With such names as 'i heart you' or 'i think you are wonderful,' you can be especially sure that your gesture of appreciation will be greatly appreciated by Mom."
-Gina (daughter)
