Mother’s Day is fast approaching, which means it’s time to show your appreciation for the woman who raised you, put up with your nonsense, and still loves you anyway. OR is also a time to show some appreciation for all the nurturers in our lives, whether it is your mom, grandma, aunt, or pet mom, they all deserve recognition for their love and care. So why not get her a thoughtful and unique gift that’s off the beaten path? If you are looking for a thoughtful and unique gift— I got your covered!

Health and Wellness Gifts

Let’s face it, moms deserve a little rest and relaxation. So why not give her the gift of self-care? Consider a massage, facial, or spa day at her favorite spot. Or maybe a gift card to her favorite fitness boutique or virtual studio. Most businesses have a gift card option. I know I would love the gift of an extra Pilates class with my favorite instructor. Here is the link to buy a Pilates Apothecary gift card.

My husband got me this eye massager for Christmas, and although I feel like a bug when I wear them, the eye massage is amazing. It gets rid of any eye puffiness that I may have in the morning, and it is super relaxing at night.

Wine Gifts

We all know that mom who enjoys a glass of wine. For her, there are plenty of unique gifts that you can give. One of my favorite things to do is go to the wine store and choose some unique wines that I think the gift recipient hasn’t tried before. There are so many choices, and people usually get stuck on one specific wine. Right now, I am loving this Italian white wine from Piedmont. Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi; it is a great light white without the acidity of the ever-popular Sauvignon Blanc. It is also very reasonably priced!

I found this book call Wine Folly last summer and think it is such a fun way to break down different types of wine. This set, created by Wine Folly, gives you everything you need for a wine-tasting experience at home. It comes with the Wine Folly Book and has a wine journal where you can keep track of all your favorite wines.

A wine decanter is both a practical and stylish idea that will enhance the flavor and aroma of her favorite wine and look pretty while serving. I love this one.

Flower Gifts

For the mother that loves flowers, there are many thoughtful and unique gifts that you can give. You can never go wrong with a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers. If you have a gardening Mom (like me), a great idea is a gardening kit or something fun for her to put in the garden. I love these solar lanterns for the garden. If you want to just give the gift of the smell of gorgeous blooms, Voluspa candles are my go-to. This Voluspa gardenia scent candle is amazing.


Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate all the nurturers in our lives. Whether it is a mom, grandma, aunt, or fur mom, they all deserve recognition for their love and care. A thoughtful and unique gift that is off the beaten path is a great way to show appreciation. Consider gifts that help mom enjoy life, whether it is health and wellness, wine, flowers or some quality time spent with you!. And remember, it’s not about the money you spend; it’s about the love you show. So go ahead and give out extra hugs that day as well!
