Mother's Day Gifts for the Modern Mom (Guest Post)

Moms today are busy, constantly juggling multiple responsibilities – and doing it well. They are the superheroes of the modern age and they deserve to be honored. While flowers and jewelry are still much appreciated gifts, moms have a variety of needs based on the range of hats they wear. This Mother’s Day, get creative with gifts for the modern mom in your life.

Some gift ideas include:
Organization kit: For the mom with an office bulging at the seams and no filing system, purchase a stylish file box for Mother’s Day and help her stay organized. Include monogrammed stationery and a customized rubber stamp inside for an extra personal touch.

New purse: Moms today need to carry around everything they or their kids may need – from Band-Aids to water to lotion – so a large tote makes a wonderful gift that’s both practical and stylish.

Menu planning service: A subscription to a menu planning service may be just what a busy working mom needs to get organized and make sure her family is eating healthy, simple meals.

 iPhone 5 cases: For modern moms with the height of technology, personalized iphone 5 cases are the ideal way to say “I love you.” It is especially sentimental if you decorate the case with photos of the kids, grandkids, or family all together.
Vacation bag: Moms need a break from the kids every now and then, so when she’s headed off on an adventure with friends, present her with a bag complete with everything she needs for a tropical getaway. The present can include a large tote, towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, flip flops, and a good book.

Specialty bakeware: Some women have a knack for baking, and for those who do, specialty bakeware is the perfect gift. Your gift could also include a beautiful cake stand or some other way to display your mom’s delicious handiwork.

 Jewelry roll: For the mom who travels frequently, a jewelry roll makes the ideal stylish yet practical gift. Be mindful that it matches the rest of her luggage.

Photo book: Create a custom photo book of a fun vacation or the last year for a fairly inexpensive Mother’s Day gift, especially if you shop the sales.
 Entertainment bucket: Moms who enjoy entertaining will love a stylish ice bucket filled with their favorite drink mix and champagne flutes. If the mom in your life prefers non-alcoholic beverages, consider including high-class tea or coffee with teacups or fun mugs.

Pamper basket: Modern moms are run ragged and need a change of pace. Give the mom in your life a basket filled with relaxation goodies, including massage oil, lotion, a lavender candle, bath salts, and a gift certificate for a pedicure at her favorite nail salon.

Digital photo frame: This gift will allow a mom to flip through her favorite pictures and see her family even while busy at work.

 iPouch wallet: A versatile space saver, an iPouch wallet allows the modern mom to keep her iPod or iPhone and wallet all together for better organization in a large purse. This is also perfect for outings where a purse is unnecessary.

 eReader: Today’s mom will love the convenience of having her books and magazines all in one location. For a fun “extra,” purchase and load some of her favorites before giving her the present.

Gym supplies: For the health-conscious mom, gym supplies or equipment – like a new gym tote, yoga mat, or workout clothes – are especially appreciated.

As you can see, there is no need to stick with the same basic Mother’s Day gifts this year. Consider sending customized Mother’s Day cards with any of these gifts for an extra personal touch. Brainstorm ideas based on what roles the mom in your life plays and what she enjoys. Whatever gift you send, be sure it reflects the modern-day woman – and superhero – she really is.
