Hopefully, you get a chance to tell your mom you love her on a regular basis. But each May, everyone gets the chance to shower their mothers with a little extra love and attention, and it's the perfect opportunity to gift her something as special as she is. Sure, you could snag a pretty bouquet of flowers or present her with a bottle of her go-to fragrance — but this year, why not go the extra mile and shop some personalized Mother's Day gifts that she'll love and appreciate long after her dedicated holiday?
This year, Mother's Day falls on May 12, which means you've still got a few weeks to get a great gift together for the most special lady in your life. But don't sit back and let the time slip away, forcing you into buying her yet another bunch of spring flowers or framed photo of you and your siblings.
Instead, pick something out for Mom that feels personal and thoughtful, that also happens to be incredibly stylish too. She'll love that you clearly put the time in to look for something she likes, which means she's much more likely to actually use and appreciate your gift this year.
If your mom loves all things bling, buy her a personalized bracelet that's pretty and eye-catching, like The Last Line's 14K Gold Cuff or Roxanne Assoulin's Just Say It Custom Enamel Bracelet. The cuff, $1,195, allows for up to five diamond inlaid initials, while the whimsical, colorful bracelet, $160, can accommodate as many as eight characters. Add an initial for each of your family members, or a simple message of "Love" to express yours. Don't be surprised if you never see Mom take off these sentimental bracelets — and who can blame her? They're seriously chic.
Many moms can't get enough of a good monogram, so make her Mother's Day by gifting her something emblazoned with her initials. Smartphone loving mothers will get excited about Casetify's Custom Phone Cases, $45, which are filled with your choice of sparkling glitter or bright neon sand, then marked with her name or initials. She'll love taking mirror selfies with it to show off her new phone accessory to friends. Or, if she's always spotted in a timeless pair of flats, give her Mansur Gavriel's newest leather Ballerina Flats, $195, which can be customized with an initial on each toe. That's one way to put a spring in her step.
And since sentimentality always wins on Mother's Day, you can't go wrong with surprising her with something deeply personal. Anya Hindmarch allows for embossing of bespoke messages or drawings in your own handwriting on many of the brand's leather goods, like this golden leather Glasses Case, $150. And Artifact Uprising offers customized photo books, $45, so you can bind all of your mom's favorite family photos into one pretty, personalized keepsake.
