The Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Mom

The Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Mom

Valentine's Day is almost here, and it's time to start thinking about what to get your mom. Whether you're buying her something for the first time or trying to find a new idea, we've got some ideas that will make her love you even more than she already does (if that's possible).

A spa day

If your mom loves to be pampered, a gift certificate for a spa day is the way to go. A manicure/pedicure or facial will do the trick, but she can get a massage or many other treatments. And if you want to go all out, you can buy her a gift card for a spa day for two!

While it may sound like an expensive gift idea on paper (and it depends on how much the spa costs), it's not as expensive as it seems once you break down each treatment's costs individually and add them up.


If you've got the budget for it, a sentimental necklace or bracelet for your mom will surely be her favorite gift. If you're looking for something thoughtful but still have some cash left over after buying her a present, consider gifting something that represents her interests and can be worn regularly.


Flowers are an excellent choice if you're looking for a gift that shows your mother how much she means to you. Plucking flowers from the ground and presenting them to her is an appropriate way to tell her, "I love you," as there's no better way to say this than with a bouquet.

You can order flowers online, at the grocery store, and at a florist's shop in town if you want to ensure that they get delivered on time—though some stores have cutoff times before which they cannot accept orders or delivery requests may not be fulfilled until after Valentine's Day.

A photo of her family

This sentimental gift will remind her of her children and grandchildren. You can get a picture printed from your phone or use an app like Instagram or Snapchat to make the image look better. Her home is where she feels most comfortable, so it's always a good idea to give gifts that will enhance it in some way—like this photo frame with its beautiful frame and sophisticated design!

A self-care subscription box

If your mom is a self-care enthusiast, a subscription box will make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. These monthly packages are filled with lots of little pamper products that can be used as part of her daily routine. They come in all different price ranges, and some even include full-size items like candles or bath bombs! You can choose from these options:

  • Monthly Subscription Boxes: These boxes are delivered once a month (or every other month) and usually come with five or more treats. They typically cost between $25-$40 per month.

  • One-Time Purchases: Some subscription services allow you to buy one or two months in advance at once for a discounted price. This might be an easier option for people who aren’t sure about committing long-term but still want to give their moms something special this Valentine's Day—and it may be less expensive than buying individual items from multiple places if you're shopping with coupons!

Bath bombs and salts

Bath bombs are the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your mother. They are a fun way to relax, and you can get bath salts in different scents. Bath salts are great for sore muscles, so this is a good option if your mother has been working hard lately or wants to pamper herself.

If you want to go all out, consider getting her new towels or washcloths. She will appreciate the thought you put into it! It's also nice when someone else does the washing machine for you once in a while!

A personalized mug

Mugs are a practical gift, but they can also be an incredibly thoughtful way to show your mom that you care. Whether you choose a coffee mug or one for her morning tea (or both!), it's a gift she'll get plenty of use for daily.

These mugs are super cute and personalized and allow you to show your mom how much she uniquely means to you: with photos and text! You can customize the design all on your own or even have us do it for you. We have so many different options available!

Mugs make great gifts for any age—even babies and toddlers who aren't quite old enough to drink coffee yet! They're perfect for moms with hobbies like knitting or baking because they can always use another mug on their desk or at home by the sink. You could also pair this gift with some excellent teas from our store if none of our designs suit her taste!

Nail polish set

Nail polish is a great Valentine's Day gift for mom because it's fun, pretty, and shows that you care. It also makes your mom feel pampered and beautiful while she waits in line at the grocery store or watches her favorite TV show. You can choose from an endless number of brands and colors of nail polish, but we recommend sticking with something neutral like a pale pink so that you don't get into any unnecessary fights about who gets to wear which color first.

To apply the polish smoothly and evenly, dip the brush into the bottle and swipe it over each fingernail twice for full coverage. If your mom prefers her nails to be very long (or perhaps if she has claws), apply several coats until they're as thick as she requests them to be."

A calendar with photos of all the grandchildren

Option 1: Get a calendar with photos of all the grandchildren. If you're lucky, a local printer can print out a calendar with all your grandchildren's pictures and deliver it to your mom in time for Valentine's Day. Or maybe you have an artistic friend who could design something similar on her own time. In this case, ensure the calendar has all their birthdays on it and that they're not too small to see (this might be difficult if she doesn't have perfect vision).

Moms will love any gift you give them, but these are some of the most popular choices.


  • A spa day is one of the best gifts for mom because she deserves to feel pampered. Even if she has a busy schedule and can't take time out for herself often, this could be just what she needs to relax and recharge her batteries.

  • A gift basket with treats like chocolate or candy is another good choice. These baskets make great additions to an Easter basket or Christmas stocking, as well as a Valentine's Day present! You can also get personalized baskets that include items from your area—like apples from your home state or maple syrup from New York State.

We hope these ideas will help you find the perfect gift for your mom. Remember, it doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant! The important thing is that she knows how much you love her and care about her well-being.
