Moms may be some of the hardest people on the planet to buy for. If you ask them what they want for Mother’s Day, their response will usually be, “just your love.” If you are looking for something to complement the love (or flowers) you give mom, we have some ideas for you.
My Infinite Agenda
My Infinite Agenda allows you to keep track of your daily commitments right next to your greatest aspirations and will clearly guide you through section prompts to start turning your dreams and goals into realities. It is an agenda, daily planner, gratitude journal, vision board and goal-setting tool all rolled into one!
Mijenko Tea Organizer
The designers at Mijenko in Melbourne, Australia, believe that your tea doesn’t have to be stored away in a cupboard, but can be kept organized in a high-quality wooden box made from wattle (small leaf acacia tree) with rose gold and silver stainless steel metal components.
The apparel line Schmattees, that combines Jewish pride and humor, has done it again with their “You’ve Come a Long Way, Bubbe” shirt. Even though women have come very far in their rights, we still have a way to go.
Triple Orb Glass Hummingbird Feeder
This feeder has room for many hummers to dine with its 12 feeder ports and ample perching space. The no-drip, no-leak, top-fill design is done in recycled glass and powder-coated metal for durability.
Sleeper Scarf by Tiffany Paul
This infinity scarf is hiding a secret: a U-shaped zippered pocket that securely holds an inflatable travel pillow. When you’re ready to catch some z’s, simply inflate the pillow and viola! The neck pillow is removable, so the scarf can be worn with or without it.
Infusion Pro Water Bottles
This water bottle makes it easy to stay hydrated. Just add cut fruit, loose leaf tea or fragrant herbs to the included fruit cage and fill the bottle with water to naturally infuse the flavors. The bottle is leak proof, BPA free, dishwasher safe and comes with a lifetime warranty.

One Question a Day for Moms
This multi-year journal encourages mothers everywhere to take a moment to themselves each day and answer simple questions about their thoughts and musings. Questions range from big and small to serious and silly, giving Mom the opportunity to share her thoughts about her life, interests, personal goals and special moments as a mother. Over the course of five years, she can look back and reflect on how the answers to these questions have changed or stayed the same.
