    1. An adorable fill-in book to tell your grandmother how amazing she is and I’m not crying, it’s allergies. *proceeds to sniffle* *breaks out a new box of Kleenex*


    Promising review: "I’ve bought two of these: One for my best friend, and one for my grandmother. They both loved them more than any other gift I’ve ever given them! My grandmother called me yesterday just to tell me that she loves it and has already read through it several times when she was feeling lonely. Definitely a great purchase for the sentimental people in your life!" —Katherine Watson

    Get it from Amazon for $9.70.

    2. Glass coasters you can fill with a picture of yourself, that way your mother can see your smiling, cherubic face every time she goes to set down her morning coffee.


    Promising review: "I LOVE these! They’re so easy to use: just put your pictures in. These make for a very unique and thoughtful gift." —Kelly

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.

    3. A genealogy chart that really ~branches~ out of the typical gift-giving realm. This shows a complete family history for generations and is sure to become THE pride of the photo gallery wall.


    The chart comes with blank spots under ever branch, that way you can add family names manually — and continue to add them as your family grows. Plus, you get two prints with each order (just in case ya mess up on the first one).

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for my mother and she loved it! I love the way that the chart is laid out, plus the details are beautiful and subtle without being cheesy." —Stefanie Esposito

    Get it from Amazon for $16.07.

    4. A pack of photo stickers featuring the apple of mom’s eye: her pet. Sure, you can get customized stickers of yourself! But something tells me she’d prefer adding a picture of her dachshund to the surface of her laptop.


    Also! These stickers are waterproof, microwave-safe, and dishwasher-safe. Yeehaw.

    Promising review: "I gave these to my sister for her dog's birthday this year and she LOVED them! It was such a cute, personalized gift that really meant a lot to her — especially for the price! Sometimes personalized things are so expensive, but this price was great. Will definitely purchase again!" —Kelly O.

    Get a pack of 20 assorted stickers from Amazon for $17.99.

    5. A hand-poured soy candle available in a bunch of delicious scents including *gulp* banana pancakes and fresh hot coffee. Customize it with an anniversary date and consider it the best present you can give from one parent to another.


    Promising review: "This is a beautiful candle and it smells amazing. The design is simple and elegant, plus it arrived much faster than expected and was very nicely packaged. Highly recommend!" —MJ

    Get it from Amazon for $24.

    6. Ceramic mugs for the long-distance mother-child duo. Customize this with two different states and a connecting heart to show that you’ll always be best friends…regardless of zip code.


    These dishwasher- and microwave-safe mugs come in two sizes, can be customized with nine different colors, AND come with a gift wrap option — because we all know that gift wrapping is a huge burden, okay? Let's just admit it.

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness. I am so, so, so very happy with my mugs! I would give it more than five stars if I could, and have recommended these to multiple friends who live away from their loved ones. The mugs themselves are absolutely beautiful, the gift wrap is beautiful, and the box itself is actually really cool, the states on mine are gorgeous...I am just so happy with this product." —Laura Ann

    Get it from Cupology on Amazon Handmade for $23.95.

    7. A customized passport that any jet setting parent will L-O-V-E. The stress of airport security will be lessened every time they glance down at this heartfelt gift to remember how lovely (and thoughtful!) you are.

    Promising review: "I am in love with this! It holds the passport really securely, the quality feels great, but it's still thin enough to not feel bulky. Plus, the shipping was super fast!" —okay

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in 18 colors).

    8. A letter book complete with 12 fold-and-mail letters each filled with a different prompt. Prepare to hold back tears as you answer "I always think of you when..."


    Promising review: "I gave these to both my mom and step-mom for Christmas and they both cried. Good tears, though! Such a sweet way to cherish the memories you have of the women who raised you!" —Abigayle

    Get it from Amazon for $11.45.

    9. A cutting board featuring a special ~recipe~ for perfection. Sugar + spice + everything nice = your mom, who is undoubtedly the best mom in the entire universe and you refuse to hear a word otherwise.


    Promising review: "I bought one for my mother last year and she absolutely loves it. I decided to get another one this year and hope to add a new one each year. The sayings on the board are very nice, so she actually uses it as decoration for everyone to see and admire. Love!" —Joyce Hoffman

    Get it from Amazon for $18.20+ (available in two sizes).

    10. A dainty handmade bracelet presented in a gorgeous box (AKA less hassle). Just scan a picture of your signature, send it to the Etsy seller, and DONE! Your mama will be walking around strutting your handwriting on her wrist!


    Get it from Caitlyn Minimalist on Etsy for $27.75+ (originally $37, available in gold, silver, and rose gold as well as in nine sizes).

    11. A to-go tumblr for the mom who walks into their local Starbucks so frequently that the workers already know both the order (cafe mocha grande, extra whip) and the proper spelling of her name.


    This reusable cup comes in a gift bag tied with ribbon, so you don't need to worry about purchasing a separate bag! Just be wary of cleaning this — the sticker used on this cup is super high quality, but it'll break down faster if you shove it in the dishwasher. Opt for hand washing instead!

    Promising review: "It came sooner than I expected and the quality is very good. I got it as a gift for a friend who loves Starbucks. The inscription I chose was '[Name's] Livin' La Vida Mocha' for those of you looking for a good coffee pun." —Joan Watson

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    12. A wall calendar you can customize to begin this May and end next May, meaning it doesn’t matter if it’s four months too late for a 2019 cal — your mom will still get a full year of use out of this.


    Not only can you personalize this calendar with photos, but you can also add special dates to the calendar (birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc.) It's also available as a desk calendar perfect for any home office!

    Get it from Snapfish for $19.99 (available in six styles and sizes).

    13. A pendant necklace guaranteed to become a part of her daily uniform. You can customize this to include the initials and birthdays of her children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren!

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50 (available in gold-, rose gold-, and silver-plated finishes).

    14. A charcuterie board that’ll make mom say “Oh, you shouldn’t have!” as she begins to break out an assortment of cheeses, crackers, and dried meats.


    Promising review: "This cheese board arrived weeks before scheduled, which is always a good thing! Beautiful custom job and the seller (based in the UK) even included a handwritten note to thank me for my purchase." —Jenny Gibbs

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    Get it from gisart print on Etsy for $6.

    16. A customized magnet because who doesn't want to stare back at themselves every time they open the fridge? Oh? That's weird? Well then I suppose you can opt for getting a magnet of your face instead since your mom <3's you.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    Get it from LetItBeYoursCo on Etsy for $10.50.

    20. A guitar pick that says “If I could choose any mom in the world, I’d definitely pick you.” This is the kind of gifts that will definitely pull on her heart strings. Boom boom chh.

    23. A Hogwarts acceptance letter delivered by owl (er, Amazon) and handwritten by Albus Dumbledore himself. You may be a muggle, but your mother certainly is not.

    24. Kendra Scott jewelry that can be personalized by the littlest kiddos.

Mom will get to walk around with a priceless piece of art.

    Kendra Scott
