Hand-Picked Gift Ideas for Experienced Moms

She was there for your ups, she was there for your downs. Before the roller coaster pulls out of the gate for another go-round, take a moment and share how glad you are to have her riding along. We've assembled a collection of options for you to express your appreciation for all of the times she threw her hands in the air and just went with it.

    • Your Family Portrait on Canvas

      • Her family is her masterpiece, so take her metaphorical magnum opus and turn it into a literal one. Canvas on Demand will take any family photograph and print it onto a canvas, giving it texture and gravitas on par with the Dutch Masters. They perform image processing on your submission to improve the focus and color balance before professionally wrapping the print on a wooden frame. The finished product is 11” x 14” and suitable for hanging. Canvas on Demand offers a one-year money-back guarantee against defects, fading and construction.

    • Mom Gift Plaque with Poetry Inscription

      • There aren't enough hours in the day to express all that moms mean to us, so ensure that the words are always there, even when the kids can't be. This decorative plaque is hemmed by a bright white frame that gives way to a rich wood face. “Mom” is prominently featured (as she should be) atop a florid poem, which articulates the things that can't always be said. If this somehow still doesn't express everything you want to say, the last two lines are customizable with up to 25 characters each. The plaque measures 7” x 5” and can be hung or placed upon a table.

    • Mother's Day Decorated Cookie Bouquet

      • Can't decide between flowers and sweets? Don't! The Mother's Day Cookie Bouquet pleases the eyes as well as the taste buds with vanilla cookies. Colorful royal icing bedecks petal-shaped treats in springtime hues to unite every happy thought a mom could wish for. The shortbread signage at the center wishes a “Happy Mother's Day” in frosted font. This tasty arrangement is so visually striking that she may not want to eat it... at first.

    • Thomas Kinkade Forever in Mother's Heart Music Box

      • Motherhood weaves a tapestry of stories through the years. An appropriate gift should be as richly detailed as her life's tableau, and the Thomas Kinkade Forever in Mother's Heart Music Box is just that gift. This 3.5” x 5” mahogany chest is graced with one of the Painter of Light's most beloved works, Everett's Cottage, framed by shining filigree. “You Are My Sunshine” is wound and played by the action of an ornate key with a unique element; the fob is bejeweled with Swarovski crystals corresponding in color to the birthstones of each child in the family. A free poem, printed upon a gift card, is delivered with the box. Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity denoting its number in this very limited production run.

    • Personalized "I Smile Because You Are My Mother" Throw

      • A college romance isn't the only relationship that can be summed up with “It's complicated.” Wrap your mother in warming nuance with this personalized throw. The phrase “I Smile Because You Are My Mother... I Laugh Because There Is Nothing You Can Do About It” is woven into 100% cotton. An additional two lines of 16 characters each can be dictated beneath the barb. The 50” x 60” coverlet is as bold on the edges as it is in the middle, fringed with brightly-colored threads.

    • 10K Marquise Family Birthstone Ring

      • Her children may be the jewels in her crown, but a few more on her finger certainly couldn't hurt. The Marquise Birthstone Name Ring brilliantly displays a roll call, engraved in flowing script, upon successive bands of 10-carat gold. These shoutouts flank a dazzling centerpiece of marquis-cut Austrian crystals in colors matching the birthstones corresponding to the name on each band. Two to seven names can be engraved into this piece. Passing eyes will be drawn to the proud mother's hand, at which point she can tell admirers all about her real treasures.

    • My Life Story So Far Clothbound Journal

      • After so many years, a mother heaps up experiences like a dragon's hoard of gold. Make sure she doesn't lose any glittering gems among the wealth by giving her the My Life Story... So Far Journal. This handsome, cloth-bound grimoire divides 106 pages into nine sections that catalogue the notable people, places and events that led her to where she is today. If she's having trouble deciding what goes where, the journal helpfully makes suggestions to organize the salient and the superfluous. Her story's not over yet, however, and there's plenty of space to fill in the future as it comes.

    • Dinner of the Month Club

      • She's cooked enough meals throughout her children's lives. Let someone else do the work for her with the Dinner of the Month Club. As each calendar page tears off, a new gift card for a local restaurant will arrive in the mail. You choose the restaurants from a long list of local participants - Bonefish Grille, Cracker Barrel and Panera Bread to name a few – as well as the dollar amount loaded on each gift card. Subscriptions are available for three, six, nine and twelve month increments. She'll raise a glass to you every time the waiter brings fresh bread.

    • Italian Chicken Feast

      • She might be a fantastic cook, but everyone appreciates it when the pressure of choosing what's for dinner is off the menu. The Italian Chicken Feast from Omaha Steaks puts together a robust meal. It starts with four 3 oz. boneless and skinless chicken breasts that have been marinated in continental flavors; they come precooked so they can be thawed and reheated. An aromatic pair of 12 oz. trays of roasted garlic mashed potatoes and two 6.5 oz. trays of fresh green beans round out this hearty meal. The entire array is shipped frozen and can be reheated with a microwave in just minutes,or oven-baked in under an hour.

    • Sterling Silver Heart Slider Birthstone Pendant

      • There are a lot of birthstone-centered gifts out there, but so many leave Mom out of the equation! Get her in on the action with a Heart Slider Birthstone Necklace. A 20” rope chain suspends a swirling heart forged from sterling silver. The point-of-connection is marked by a smaller solid heart that hefts an Austrian crystal in the color of Mom's birthstone. At the bottom of the charm, more birthstone crystals hang from sliding rings that dangle for each child that she has to her credit. Up to seven children can be represented on this delightful pendant.

    • Family Memories Personalized Photo Collage Canvas Art

      • Sometimes, too many memories earn their way into posterity to select a single one for immortalization. The Family Memories Photo Collage Canvas lets you depict all the special moments for which you happen to have photographic evidence. The easy-to-use online formatter allows you to upload seven black-and-white or color images and a family name. The finished product can be gallery wrapped, or you can opt to purchase a smart-looking black or champagne wood frame for an additional fee. Three sizes are available – 12” x 18”, 16” x 24”, and 24” x 36” – so that your gift can nestle comfortably into any picture wall.

    • “I Love You Mom” Throw Pillow

      • You might want to keep your gift giving simple and elegant, and the delicately stitched “I Love You Mom” Throw Pillow makes a demure statement. A 10” x 10” cushion is embroidered with this most fundamental of filial phrases within a heart outline of ribboned roses. The seams of the edges are lined with piping for a finished look. You can order the pillow in one of three pastel colors – rose, cream or Sage. A plethora of gift wrapping options are available and all include a salutatory card.

    • Mom's Heart Hand Stamped Charm Necklace

      • If you want to know what names are written on a mother's heart, just read the names on the charms of the necklace hanging around her neck. A double rolo chain supports a large central heart of sterling silver that has been hand-stamped with the name or message of your choice. Two small round discs flank the pendant and are similarly impressed with the names of her children. Additional pieces can be ordered as necessary. Nine fonts are available for inscription. For a nominal fee, you can include an anti-tarnish pouch and a polishing cloth.

    • Wake Up to Wonderful Gift Basket

      • Getting Mom's day off to a great start has benefits that are bound to trickle their way down to you. The Wake Up to Wonderful Gift Basket totes a package of four Wolferman's 1910 Original Recipe Signature English Muffins. An additional whole loaf of English Muffin Bread baked with the same recipe is included. Dig deeper and sweeter options are to be found, such as a refined blueberry scone and an indulgent cinnamon roll. A spiced honey creme spread can top any or all of the above... or eaten with a spoon!

    • Small Photo Purse

      • A clever shopper picks gifts that keep on giving. Make sure Mom is thinking of you as she reaches for her credit card by splashing your smiling face onto a Photo Purse from Personal Creations. A quick upload of a snappy head shot to their website will net a 7” x 10” photo designed to fill the window on the front of the bag. Additional pictures can be easily switched out to match the season. The purse is trimmed in genuine black leather for a modern and stylish feel, while the 100% polyester lining keeps the accessory light and easily cleanable.

    • Woven Tote Picnic Basket for Four

      • There is no such thing as a bad day for a picnic if you're really creative. You'll want to dine under a bus stop awning in the snow just for an excuse to take advantage of all the Woven Tote Picnic Basket has to offer. The cavernous, woven bag is stuffed to the brim with all you need to, including: four slim yet durable bamboo place settings, four whimsical mason jar sippers with die-cut slots for included barber-pole straws, a gorgeous mahogany trunk cheeseboard with knife, a juice carafe; two carrying containers with locking lids and table linens in neutral summery colors.

    • Nap Massaging Bed Rest

      • For Mother's Day, the natural instinct is to give her a day off by way of an afternoon in bed. Beds are great – warm, comfortable and without a dress code – but trying to conduct the activities of a lazy day from a supine position can be tedious. Enter the Nap Massaging Bed Rest. This plush and ergonomic chair back rests against her headboard so that she can sit upright to see the television or look out the window at jealous passersby. An adjustable LED brightly lights a book, and can be squirreled away in the arm's side pocket. A recessed cup holder keeps her coffee or tea at the tips of her fingers. All of the above makes for a fantastic gift, but here's the coup de gras: a selection of massage functions that will melt her into the sheets. You may never get her out of bed again.

    • Personalized Oversized Family Tree Sculpture

      • A family tree is a great way to keep in touch with one's heritage. The Oversized Family Tree Sculpture turns a teachable moment into appealing decor (and vice versa). Place family portraits as appropriate among the branches of this 19.5” x 22” metal flora by either directly inserting photographs into the clamps or hanging the six included ornamental metal frames. The base of the artwork displays a plaque with a custom name or message engraved above a “Year Established.” Few gifts so finely fuse form and function.

    • Gourmet Treat Tulip Tower

      • The best thing about giving Mom sweets is that they won't be sitting around next year when gifting time rolls around again. Still, you should do it up right with a Gourmet Treat Tulip Tower. Choose an edible edifice of either six or seven tiers of every indulgent confection imaginable. As the building is demolished, she'll find flavored popcorn, gummis and honey roasted nuts. Further excavation reveals dark chocolate caramels, dipped pretzels and more. Each layer is boxed in a fun tulip print, and a bright ribbon makes the tableau complete. For a bite-sized fee, you can even have the gift personalized!
