Great Gifts for Mom
Take Her on a Vacation

One of the best gifts for your mom this year would be a vacation to a place she's always wanted to visit. Being her children, you would be aware of a few destinations she has in mind, or at least the kind she likes to visit. Give her a surprise, and fly away with her, and the entire family. She will be ecstatic to see the destination she's hoped of visiting all these years. In addition, it turns out to be a holiday with the family! It would surely increase the best days of her life, wouldn't it?
Make Her a Home

If you're working, and seldom find the time for your parents, this could be a great present for your mother. Remember when you were young, and she surprised you with new toys? Made changes to your room, to suit every age? That's exactly what you need to do! Renovate her house completely, or her room, if she stays with you. For this gift, you'd need to plan in time, and execute in time too. Give her room/home a complete makeover. It is a gift that she can cherish everyday!
Buy Her a Perfume

If your mom is a fan of fragrances, this would be the greatest gift for her. Even in gifting perfumes, you need to follow a particular etiquette. Check her earlier collection and see the fragrances she is fond of. My pick would be Chanel's No.5. This is one perfume, the bottle of which is sold every 30 seconds even today. If you don't want to run the risk of repeating the perfume, gift her one of the latest. For these, you can inquire at a store, or search on the Internet.
Present Her with a Book

Books can be gifted anytime, during the entire year, for any occasion. The best thing about these literary works is, they can be gifted even if you have a low-budget. Again, you can check for her favorite authors, or her favorite genre in novels. Make a list of classics, and check for some she doesn't have. You can also slip in the question in any normal discussion, and that's it, your work is done! Magazine memberships can also be a great gift.
Keep Her Busy

If your mom is a senior, and has lots of time in her hands, one of the best gifts for her would be a chance to work with an NGO. Search for a few societies that work for the underprivileged, or reputed NGOs that she'll like working with. She'll be doing some great work, and will surely be content with it. Another option is to gift her memberships of certain clubs that are of her interest. These can be anything from travel, to reading, to teaching the poor.
Movies and Music

If your mom is a movie buff, this is another awesome gift for her. You must know her favorite movies, isn't it? Just make a small collection of those, and gift it to her. Another option here, is to gift her music CDs. These can be of her favorite band(s). It might take you some time to find out about these, but she'll be really happy once she receives them. If you are low on cash, you can download a few from the Internet.

Start a Business

If you have enough money to lend to your mom, you can help her start a business she's always wanted to. There must be something she's always wanted to do. It can be a daycare, a fashion line, or a travel company even. This gift will stay with her for a lifetime, and she'll be busy with it too. One of the most important parts here, is that she'll be earning a lot as well.
Arty and Happy

In all the years that we have already lived, we have made a mental note of the things we wanted to learn. It can be anything from cooking, to dancing, to singing. Imagine the number of things your mom has wished to discover, and hasn't been able to. This year, ask her what she wants to experiment with, and do so with her. Join dancing classes, or an acting class perhaps! What else comes with this gift? Quality time with her!
Retail & Relaxation Therapies

Two therapies that are a must in later years of life, aren't they? Gift your mom 12 gift vouchers from different stores, for different brands. Let her select what she wants to buy. To make it more interesting, you can buy her 5 vouchers for every month, of a smaller denomination. And, what does one need after a day of shopping? A spa! Book her 12 appointments in her favorite spa! Who wouldn't want a gift like this one?
Gifts That Pamper

You might be a pampered child and now what you can do is, pamper your mom with electronic gifts like head and foot massagers or even a portable foot spa. Such gifts will comfort her and in turn make her happy. A nice head or foot massage in the evening is the best way to make her feel relaxed after she finishes her daily chores.
A Truckload of Memories

This is a common concept, but not a common one in practice. Few have the patience to execute this one. Make a pile of all the photographs you have clicked with your mom over the years. Select 20 photographs that are closest to you or her. Get these printed on different colors of cloth. Once that is done, get a quilt done out of it. A great idea, isn't it? It will undoubtedly look super! If possible, make this one yourself!
Electronic Gifts

If your mom is good with technology, this will be the finest gift that she can have. Gadgets like a fancy digital camera or DSLR, a decent smart-phone or a laptop or a cool looking smart TV could make great electronic gifts. You could also choose from other useful gadgets like headphones or power bank/portable charger. A digital photo frame is also a great gift and she could cherish all the sweet memories that she has had with you, through it.
Make Her Fit

Choosing the best health food or fitness magazine subscriptions for your mom could be an awesome way to show her how much you care for her. You could choose from other worthy alternatives such as fitness trackers and bands, subscription of a convenient gym, personal yoga mat or something as simple as workout leggings.
Make Her Look Fashionable

You could gift her the most elegant clothing of one of the finest fashion brands. However, you need to know the patterns that she would like to wear and feel comfortable in. You could also consider buying her a nice looking hat, a fancy scarf or some classy jewelery set that will suit her the best. You could simply choose rings, bangles, necklaces or ear-rings and gift it to her.
Other Gifts

Some of the other special and evergreen gifts that you can give her are:
  • Handbags
  • Watches
  • Kitchen sets
  • Hand-made chocolates, cakes and biscuits
  • Pen-stand with pens
  • Musical instruments
Any gift when given with all your heart is the best gift. You just have to keep in mind the likes and dislikes of your mom. For fitness related gifts, make sure that you do not offend her and make her realize that you are giving her such a gift in the best of her interests.

Also, try to avoid gifting things like an iPhone X to your mom if she isn't so fond of smart-phones or has a techno-phobia. The key for choosing the best gift is to know what kind of gifts would she like and what best can you buy in something that suits your budget.

Your gift could be something as simple as a dinner that you make for her or something as elaborate as a brand new car. It should bring a smile on your mom's face.
Now that you know these best gifts for your mom, you can gift one to your mother soon. You don't have to wait for an occasion or for some celebration, do you? You can gift her any of the above, just as a token of appreciation for what she has done for you over the years, or simply as a token of love. That should be reason enough, isn't it? On this happy note, I leave you to decide what you want to gift your mother this year.
