Here are 10 ideas for every budget (even $0!!) of what to give your wife for Mother’s Day that will show her she is loved, valued, and appreciated.
What to Give Your Wife for Mother’s Day
These ten ideas of gifts to give Mom for Mother’s Day will bring a smile to her face (and maybe even a tear to her eye):
1. The day off… everything! (And I do mean everything.)
This tops the wish list of almost every mom out there. If it’s not in your budget to buy any gifts this year, this is a great free offering she’ll greatly appreciate! She does a million things for the family every single day (probably more than you even realize), so give her the gift of a day off all childcare, meal, and house-related tasks.
2. A gift she’ll love
If receiving gifts is her love language, though, try to make that happen for her. It doesn’t have to be expensive to be meaningful, so don’t get hung up on the cost. Your effort and a special meaning will make it a gift to be treasured.
Here are some ideas:
- Personalized Mama Bear Tumbler
- Spa Gift Set
- Willow Tree Memory Box
- Personalized Blanket with Family Names
- Self-Care Subscription Box
- Gourmet Coffee & Chocolate
- Fine Tea Collection
- Handheld Massager
- Kindle Unlimited Subscription
- Audible Membership
3. Massage or spa day
Moms give so much of their bodies to their family, so they deserve a little pampering! A massage to relax those tired muscles or an afternoon putting life back into her stressed-out soul could be just the thing she needs this year.
4. List of reasons she’s the best
Here’s another wonderful free gift that packs a powerful punch. I think we can all agree moms rarely get the recognition or the praise they deserve. While that’s not why we do what we do day in and day out, it sure puts deposits in our love banks when we are affirmed and appreciated. (This would be especially meaningful for a “words of affirmation” woman.)
5. Handmade gifts
If your kids are crafty, have them make her a homemade Mother’s Day gift or card.
6. Time to do something she loves
Between all the demands of motherhood, it can be difficult for moms to find time to do the things they love. Give your wife the gift of time to pursue a hobby, participate in her favorite recreational activity, or do something else she loves to do.
7. Space to fuel her soul
Give her a gift she both wants and needs with space to fuel her soul. This means you take the kids for a while so she can do one (or more!) of the following: read her Bible or an inspirational book, journal or write, watch a sermon or listen to a podcast, work on a Bible study, or whatever else fills her cup!
8. Sentimental gift
Most moms (though not all, so definitely go with your gut on this one — you know her best!) love a good sentimental gift. Especially ones that involve her kids. Put together a photo book of her and the kids, get her a personalized photo gift, or buy her a piece of birthstone jewelry.
9. Fun family activity (she doesn’t have to plan or pack for!)
Many of these ideas have involved kid-free time, but maybe your wife gets enough of that during the week and just wants time with her kiddos! If that’s the case, take her on a fun family outing. Here’s the gift part, though — do ALL the planning and packing so she only has to show up and enjoy it!
10. Laid back, relaxing day with her favorite people
If she wants time with her people, but she wants to take it easy, give her a laid-back, relaxed day with the family. Lay on the couch all afternoon, put in a movie and pop some corn, chill out on the front porch or deck, or spend time however else she can best relax and enjoy some time of togetherness.
