What is Mother’s Day?

Mother's Day takes place on May 10, 2021, and is the holiday to celebrate the women in our family we wouldn’t exist without: our mothers and grandmothers! Though the name is similar to Mothering Sunday, a British and European holiday three Sundays before Easter when Christians would visit their mother church, its history is quite different. This secular holiday began in the early 20th century in West Virginia and was commercialized a few years later.

This year, Mother’s Day is coming up on May 10th, so get ready to come up with a special gift! Whether you purchase it online or from a local store or flower shop, the options are endless.

What Are the Best Edible Mother's Day Gifts?

And, for a holiday that’s so important, it’s good to have some ideas prepped for Mother’s Day 2021. While flowers and gift cards can be great, there are other ways that you can show your love. In fact, we have a little list that may get you started on this year’s gift-giving! For the best Mother’s Day gift ideas 2021 offers, the following will help her revel in things food-related!

Afternoon Tea

If tea is your mom’s beverage of choice, an assortment of her favorite kind can be the perfect gift. While she might not buy it herself, she’ll love if you spring for a selection of rooibos or green tea! It can even be a great reason to plan an afternoon teatime catch up.

Ember Temperature Control Mug

It might not be food per se, but this mug will be sure to impress a tea or coffee maven. Your mom will be thrilled with having the first temperature-controlled mug that she can adjust with her smartphone. While it's pricier than your average mug, costing between $80-$130, it’s among the most unique gift ideas to share on a family app!

For a more portable option for a mom-on-the-go, she might love a S'Well traveler mug, which is only $35 and keeps hot beverages hot for up to 6 hours.

A Box of Chocolates

Okay, we know a box of chocolate is a bit chiche for Mother’s Day. But, if this tempting treat is one of your mother’s favorite foods, there’s nothing to feel bad about! Instead of drugstore chocolate, buy something from a local chocolatier or some expensive Swiss chocolate she wouldn’t buy herself.

What Are Some Unique Mother's Day Gifts from Adults?

There can be more to the special day than just the standard flower bouquet- though those can be fantastic, too! Here are more options, from the personalized to the gifts that keep on giving throughout the year. Share your favorites on FamilyApp!

A Flower Subscription

A bouquet or even artificial flowers might not be the most original idea, but that doesn’t mean they’re not well-loved. So for an extra floral twist, why not give your mom a flower subscription service? That way, she can get flowers with a special Mother’s Day message all year long!

A Personalized Necklace

Jewelry may be the type of gift that is very personal. But if your mom is a fan, she’ll probably love a personalized piece from her children. Whether it’s engraved with her kids’ names or a favorite saying, some sparkling sterling silver can make a great gift!

An Essential Oils Diffuser

It goes without saying that being a mom can be one of the hardest jobs out there. So a diffuser can be a great way to give your mom the gift of relaxation. With a selection of favorite essential oils, she’ll likely get a lot of use out of this present.

What Can Toddlers and Preschoolers Make for Mother’s Day?

Going out to purchase something for mom can be a great idea. But, there’s something to be said for a DIY gift with a Mother’s Day card. This can be a fun option for younger kids without a bank account!

Make a Meal

Our mom often spends a lot of time caring for us, and that’s why it’s so nice to give back. With the help of their parent, a toddler or preschooler can make breakfast in bed or a simple lunch. After all, it’s the kind of thing a mother won’t soon forget!

A Homemade Memory Box

You can buy a Greetabl Mother’s Day Box online and choose a pattern, a gift and some pictures. But you can also concoct your very own gift box from scratch! If your kids are pretty artsy, this can be great for encouraging their creativity.

This special day is perfect for giving back to your mother. From a simple bouquet of flowers to a piece of personalized jewelry, she won’t soon forget the gesture.
