Choosing Presents for Mom

Surprising your mom with an unexpected present is something that will make you both happy. Here are some ideas for gifts to give on your mom's birthday, or for other occasions.
Receiving any kind of present, unexpectedly, is a great surprise for anybody. Surprising your mom with a present for her birthday, Mother's Day, anniversary, or even for no reason at all, will be greatly appreciated by her. Given here are some great present ideas that she will absolutely love.

Spa Trip

You can arrange a trip to a fancy day spa. Your mom can spend the entire day getting a manicure, pedicure, haircut, facial, massage, or anything else that she wants.
It will be a good stress buster for her, especially if she happens to be a stay-at-home mom, or juggles two jobs. Get her a fully-paid coupon for the entire range of services that the spa provides. Getting a day away from the household chores, or from her job, will be a nice change for her.


For those of you who are good at cooking, pick your mom's favorite dish and learn how to prepare it. As long as a gift is chosen with love and gets your message across, the cost does not matter.
Serve her breakfast in bed, or give her the day off from cooking. Cook her favorite meals, and let her make the most of the spare time.

Family Portrait

This is a good idea for a birthday gift. Hire one of the best professionals to paint a portrait of your family. The surprise factor is not very dominant here, as your mom would also be present at the sitting. You can also give the artist a family picture to paint the portrait.

Custom Calendar

You can visit a professional designer, and get a custom-designed calendar made with pictures of your family. Each month's page can have a picture with a story behind it, which will make the gift very memorable.
You can choose photos of your entire family, or ones of you and your mom, your parents together, or your siblings with her, as well.


Although this is a old-school gift which may seem to have become redundant with time, it is still one of the most widely used and popular gift ideas. Buy your mom her favorite flowers, or a magnificent looking bouquet. This gift will make her happy.

Swanky Dinner

Take her out to dinner at a restaurant she does not normally visit. Make sure you have reserved a table in advance. It could be a restaurant that she has been wanting to visit for a long time, or even a brand new one, but ensure that it is something she will like.

Photograph Collage

Make a collage of the photos you have of yourself with your mom.
Watching you grow up has been one of the most memorable events of her life, and if you can narrate the entire story in the form of a collage, it will make for a great gift.

Other Miscellaneous Gifts

If you're in the mood to indulge, you can buy her pearls or other kinds of jewelry, clothes, chocolates, accessories for the house, home appliances, photo frames, crockery sets, dining cloths, glasses, or shoes. Find out what she needs, and gift her accordingly.
At the end of the day, whatever it is that you are gifting your mom, make sure that it comes as a surprise. If she has a clue about what you are going to be gifting her, or if she's aware about it beforehand, the effect will be lost.
