Finding just the right Mother's Day gift for a special woman in your life can be kind of difficult because, well, she's flipping awesome. Whether you choose to get crafty and make something to showcase your little one's artistic talents or you are planning to go all out, the goal each May is always to nail the gift, right? That's why I was excited to put together this list of thoughtful Mother's Day gifts because there are some great ideas out there.
To be honest, a lot of these gifts are kind of for me (hint, hint, people who love me). I mean, how could I not want a box curated for a quiet morning of reading at home, a pajama set that actually matches, or a posh sleep mask that helps me score better sleep?
Remember that regardless of what you choose for the leading lady in your life, Mother's Day is all about making her feel like she's pretty cool, whether that means a DIY project or stunning piece of jewelry. And, hey, don't underestimate the power of a fun family day or even a plan to help her get some alone time. Because moms really do deserve it all, am I right?
1. A Curated Box That Has It All
I'm not going to lie — I want this one for myself. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with any gift that includes a book. But to add in other goodies like raw honey and yummy tea, well, I'm sold. Other curated boxes from the BOXFOX Mother's Day Collection include "Pamper" and "Heart & Home," or you can design your own.
2. Comfy Pajamas That Actually Match
OK, this might seem like a basic at first glance. But if a mom in your life is anything like me, then I can guarantee she's walking around with holes in her fave pajamas. That's why these Solstice Pajamas (the top and pants are sold separately, so make sure you snag both) are kind of awesome. Plus, they're made from 100 percent organic cotton jersey, which makes them ultra comfortable.
3. A Personalized Necklace With Her Favorites
Moms kind of love to keep the people they care about most close to their hearts, and this personalized family necklace allows her to do just that. Choose from sterling silver, rose gold, and 18K gold for the circles and chains, and create a truly unique piece.

10. DIY Photo Gift She'll Adore
OK, I'm kind of in love with this DIY photo project and I think a mom in your life might be, too. All it requires is scissors, string, a hole punch, tree branch, and black and white photos of your choice. I mean, this is a gift that just simply cannot be passed up, right?
