What Should You Get Your Wife for Mother’s Day?

by on May 5, 2012

Mother's Day Gift IdeasMother’s day is just around the corner, and most of us men will wait to the last minute to get our girlfriend or wife a Mother’s day gift. I am also in the same boat but I am going to start shopping now and also share with you some ideas of what to get your girlfriend for mother’s day.

Mother’s Gift Idea’s from Husband or Boyfriend


Get a gift that is personalized just for her. You don’t have to go balls to the wall and spend hundreds of dollars on a diamond necklace. Instead get her a cheap necklace with her name engraved in it, or maybe some jewelry that says ‘Best Mom’, something along those lines.  It’s going to be the thought that counts so make it special.

Take some photos of your wife or girlfriend hanging out with their child. Bring the card to a photo store that prints out photos and buy a good frame for the photo. A photo frame that says ‘I love mom’ or something along those lines would be sure to put a smile on her face on Mother’s Day.

Another idea of what you can get your girlfriend for Mother’s Day would be flowers. Most of the times Flowers will also please your partner – and most flower boutiques can be purchased for under $60 – or swing by your local Publix and save even more $$$.

Get her a gift basket of some sort. Being that Mother’s day is so close, every shopping store that you walk into should have Mother’s day gift baskets available, not to mention the thousands of online stores that are offering gifts for Mother’s Day.


Where to Take Your Wife or Girlfriend for Mother’s Day


Take her out to her favorite Restaurant, I know that it may be expensive and you may be broke, but it’s worth it to treat her right on this special day. She will thank you for it and she will remember what you did for her when it’s your turn on Father’s day. Should you be in the same boat a lot of us broke people are, then cook her something special for dinner, and make a romantic dinner out of it at your place.

Another idea would be to book her a day at a spa. What woman in their right mind wouldn’t want to spend some time relaxing at a local spa getting pedicured and pampered all day?

Also after you get a Mother’s day gift for your girlfriend or wife, don’t forget to get something and do something special for your own Mother also :)

It really is about the thought – “It’s the thought that counts….” but I think that doing something that means something to your wife is really the way to go. For instance, take her out to a restaurant, like you said, and make sure it means something to her as a mother or wife. Make it personal and she will love it that much more. Buy her a gift that reminds her of the first time you met, or the first time she saw her kids…something that evokes happy memories and therefore makes her happy now. THAT will be a way to really make her remember this Mother’s Day and give you lots, and lots ;) , of thanks.

I agree with your points. Its not the money that makes the gift it is the thought and customization that show you care. Handmade gifts go a long way too if you have the time.

I know, for me, it’s not so much about the material gifts as about the time spent together. I love “experience gifts” for Mother’s Day. I love it when my kids make me breakfast in bed and then they have a whole day planned out that they know I’ll enjoy. Sometimes it’s costly. Sometimes it’s not.

Thanks for such great ideas. Loved them. I agree with you that you don’t need to spend hundred bucks to make your partner happy. It just takes some right thinking. My girl loves flower. I’ll go for that.
