20 Thoughtful & Unique Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
If your mom is one-of-a-kind (and we’re betting she is), she deserves more than an off-the-shelf gift that about 800 other moms will get on Mother’s Day.
She deserves something as special as she is, and our lineup of unique Mother’s Day gift ideas are at your service.
Unique Mother’s Day gift ideas include flowers, sure, but not just any ole bouquet will do. Go beyond the standard flower fare, opting for flowers that have a personal meaning or represent something for mum (pun intended).

If your mom doesn’t love flowers, these little trees can be a great Mother’s Day gift alternative. They’re one of those things most moms would love to have but wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves.
Whether you make mom a personalized photo book, calendar, desktop plaque or phone case, mom will be filled with joy every time she looks at the pics of her beloved. View offers from Shutterfly on Shopathome.com just in time for Mother’s Day.
Even if mom is already magnificent in the kitchen, cooking classes can open the way for new skills, ideas, and culinary expertise.
