Mother's Day will be here before you know it — Sunday, May 13 to be exact. And as usual, Target has anything and everything you could ever want or need, including Mother's Day gifts. While I'm sure the special mom in your life would be happy with a Target gift card — so she can get whatever she wants — she may be happier with a more thoughtful gift from you, and bonus points that it's from her favorite store. You can't go wrong with Mother's Day gifts at Target. Plus, worst case scenario — if she doesn't love what you get her, I can guarantee she'll be back at Target at some point soon so she can just exchange it for something else.
Target is the best. You know it, I know it, and they have gift options for every type of mom, whether she wants to pamper herself, needs a new outfit or perhaps a new purse. She can even get a brand new pair of Hunter boots at a pretty steep discount, and now that the Hearth & Hand Magnolia brand is at Target, she'll love all the home decor even more. Mom definitely has the best eye for that stuff. Beyond that, you can check out these 10 gift options for mom — she's sure to love at least one of these.
1. Target Beauty Boxes
What better way to show mom you care than to give her the opportunity to pamper herself with one of these adorable beauty boxes from Target? There are a few different types of boxes to choose from, including the “Wakeup and Makeup” box, the “Be YOU(tiful)” box, and the “Treat Yourself” box, to name a few.
2. Mama Needs Some Coffee Mug
Every mom needs coffee, so you definitely can’t go wrong with this jumbo porcelain coffee mug. This larger than life mug gives her more room for all of her cold coffee she will be drinking three hours after she’s made a fresh pot. Bless her heart. Maybe along with the mug you can make sure she has some time in the morning for herself to drink it?
3. Instax Mini 9 Camera
Instant film is all the rage again, and how awesome is that? Mom will love this beautiful mini camera to snap photos of you and the kiddos — and the crafting opportunities and scrapbooking options instant photos can bring. Don’t forget to pick up extra film for her at Target for just $15.
4. Hunter For Target Women’s Waterproof Ankle Boots
Hunter has arrived at Target. Hallelujah. And at such a deep discount than you can get at other stores, you may want to stock up on these rubber, waterproof boots for the entire family. She’ll love how cool, yet practical, these boots are. And she’ll love the price even more.
5. Boss Lady T-Shirt
6. Pearhead Babyprints Photo Frame
Nothing is quite as cute as your baby’s foot and hand prints. It’s a lovely keepsake to remember just how tiny their little toes and fingers were, and it’s nice to look back on when they’re older. This photo frame has a spot for one handprint, one footprint, and a spot for a picture of your adorable baby right in the center. So grab that ink and a photo of your baby and get to town. She'll love it.
7. ‘52 Lists For Happiness' Journal
I love journaling and writing and I find it to be a great way to relax and detox all of my thoughts and stresses away. This particular journal encourages “happiness” by giving her weekly journaling inspiration in the form of lists. She’ll love this special journal, but will love it even more if you can help her carve out time just for her so she can write in it and reap the benefits.
8. L’Oreal Paris Detox & Brighten Pure-Clay Mask
This pure-clay mask by L’Oreal has three pure clays and charcoal, and is meant to detox her skin and brighten it right up. Give her a mini spa day at home and have mom pamper herself with a face mask. She’s definitely earned it, and whether you use this particular brand or any of the brands of face masks Target carries, I’m sure she’ll feel pampered.
9. e.l.f. Brush & Brush Cleaner Set
If the mom in your life loves applying and wearing makeup, she could always use some new fabulous brushes — and definitely a brush cleaner. This seven-piece set comes with a bronzing brush, eyeliner brush, eyeshadow brush, smudge eye sponge, concealer brush, eyelash and brow wand, and a daily brush cleaner. If you have no clue what any of that stuff means, don’t worry. She will.
10. Botanics All Bright Radiance Concentrate Serum
Mom will feel luxurious after using this concentrate serum. According to the description, it’s “naturally exfoliating from the hibiscus plant and a blend of active botanicals, improving skin’s texture and tone.” It’s free from all the phthalates, butyl parabens, formaldehyde and all the other hard to pronounce stuff most people don’t want on their skin. The reviews are overwhelmingly positive for this product, especially for its low price, and they say it’s hydrating, brightening, and helps even the skin.
Most moms just want to feel pampered and loved on Mother’s Day, and these gift options from Target will definitely do the trick, whether it’s to help facilitate a spa day at home, a cute mug to drink her coffee out of, or a T-shirt reminding her she’s boss.
