Are you looking to show your grandchildren’s mother – your daughter or daughter-in-law – how much you love and appreciate her? While words and actions are the best way to convey this message, Mother’s Day presents a unique opportunity, as you can spoil your daughter/in-law with gifts and acts of service that will keep her feeling appreciated and loved all year.

To help you, I have compiled a list of 15 gifts and gift ideas that you can surprise the mother of your grandchildren with this Mother’s Day:

1. Babysitting

This is the easiest, least expensive, and, dare I say, most thoughtful gift, as moms can always use a little time for themselves! Tell her to choose a date for a night out with her husband, an afternoon with her girlfriends, or just some time alone. Trust me: This gift is the most priceless of them all!

2. Nekteck Shiatsu Foot Massager Machine

As the proud owner of one of these, I can attest to the quality of this ingenious machine (it feels like you have somebody squeezing them – it is fantastic and incredibly relaxing/therapeutic)! If you want to help your daughter/in-law relax after a long day with the kids, this Shiatsu foot massager is the perfect gift for her. 

3. Oziva Aromatherapy Shower Steamers

Have you been introduced to shower steamers? Essentially, they are a bath bomb for showers, as they are placed in the corner of the tub and release relaxing scents when mixed with water. They are lovely and can transform every shower into a spa-like experience. 

4. Bodum Brazil French Press Coffee Maker

I rolled my eyes when I first heard people talk about French press coffee. A cup of coffee is a cup of coffee, right? I was gravely mistaken: There is something to this concept (manually brewing your coffee, which gives it a better taste!), and one that your daughter will surely appreciate. 

5. Personalized Planet

Grandmas LOVE receiving personalized gifts, and so do moms! Enter Personalized Planet: A website dedicated to unique, custom gifts that every mom will love. From customized frames and coffee mugs to pillows, candles, and tote bags, you can find something for every mom and every price point.

6. Trendy Personalized Baseball Cap

Okay, but how cute would your daughter/in-law be wearing this cap at one of your grandkids’ sporting events? (It even comes in a wide array of fun colors!)

7. Stem Yellow Sunflowers, With Vase

Flowers are a classic Mother’s Day gift that never goes out of style. Even better? You can get them delivered by Amazon, which promises you will receive a fresh and fragrant bouquet every time.  

8. Godinger Wine Decanter Carafe

After a long day of being a mom, nothing is better than kicking back with a glass of wine. (I remember those days – don’t you?) Grab a bottle or two of your daughter’s favorite and pair it with this exquisite hand-blown wine decanter and aerator. Cheers! 

9. iRobot Braava Jet M6 (6110) Ultimate Robot Mop

This one is very much on the pricier side; however, if you have the means, having a robot to do the mopping whenever you need it would be the biggest godsend for a young family. 

10. Lodge EC7D33 Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven

If you own a Dutch oven, you don’t need me to tell you just how fabulous they are, especially when you love to cook! These 7.5-quart Dutch ovens come in various fun colors and are timeless pieces that can be passed down to her children.

11. Catalonia Wearable Blanket with Sleeves and Pocket

These wearable blankets are so darn fun and cozy! Whether your daughter enjoys reading or binge-watching the latest reality show, she will be warm and comfortable while she relaxes in her new favorite blanket.

12. Sugarfina Treat Yourself 3 Piece Candy Bento Box

Who says that candy is only for kids? Not so with this Sugarfina Treat Box! (If you have ever tried anything from Sugarfina, you know what I mean.) Featuring But First, Rosé!, Sparkling Rosé Bears, and Sugar Lips sour gummy candy, there is a decadent flavor that will satisfy every mom’s sweet tooth. 

13. She’s Birdie–The Original Personal Safety Alarm for Women by Women

This is one of those gifts you hope a loved one never has to use, but it is better to be safe than sorry and to arm yourself should a dangerous situation arise. Enter Birdie: A discreet keychain with a bright and distracting strobe light and a loud siren to help deter an attack. 

14. Floerns Women’s Notch Collar Print Sleepwear

Who doesn’t love a pair of cute and comfortable pajamas? These matching two-piece PJs are incredibly soft and come in the cutest patterns and colors! 

15. Tell Me Your Life Story, Mom: A Mother’s Guided Journal and Memory Keepsake Book

Last but certainly not least is a beautiful keepsake that will be treasured for years to come. This guided journal will ask Mom a series of traditional, quirky, and thought-provoking questions she can one day pass along to her children. 

I hope you find a thing or two that you can treat your daughter/in-law to this Mother’s Day! I had so much fun curating this list and think there is something for every preference and price point. Happy Mother’s Day, from your friend, Devoted Grandma.
