Figure out what to get Mom for her birthday! It’s gotta be something special, and you’re sure to find just the right choice here that will warm her heart.

Moms have so many decisions to make all day every day.  What will we eat for three meals?  What should everyone wear today?  How much TV is too much?  Can we buy this thing/have someone over/go somewhere?

Sometimes the best gift of all is to not have to make any decisions!

So keep that in mind when you try to figure out what to get Mom for her birthday this year!

I wanted to find some special gifts for Mom this time, and this list is great. It's got affordable ideas that I know she'll actually love to have!


Honestly, whether you’re shopping for Mom’s birthday, Mother’s Day, Christmas, or any special occasion (no reason at all is a special occasion when it comes to the person who loves you the most!), you want to put some thought into it.

But it doesn’t have to cost a fortune!  We’re all about saving money on this blog!

I mean, if we’re being honest here, I think most Moms would love a bath without anyone banging on the door for 20 minutes.  Right?

What To Get Mom For Her Birthday This Year

Nostalgic Gifts

I don’t know any moms who think life is going by too slowly.  Even on tough days, we worry that our kids are growing up too fast.  Some day we may forget all about what it was like when our kids were so small!

That’s what makes these gifts so special.  They create a connection to your Mom like never before.  And they are a special keepsake that you’ll both be grateful to have.

Be sure to check out this list of fun things to do on your birthday!


Every Mom has something she especially loves, and why not let her wear that proudly?  My hubby sent me the link to a shirt that says “I teach my kid to hit and steal.”  The mix of sarcasm and baseball was perfect for me!

And there’s a perfect t-shirt for the Mom in your life, too. Here are some fun options to get you started!

Etsy is a diamond mine when it comes to finding just the right t-shirt!  Try these ideas:

Pamper Her!

I don’t know too many Moms who don’t love their coffee!  Did you know that they now make a coffee maker that will grind beans and then brew them?  Fresh coffee with nearly no effort on Mom’s part!  Which is even more awesome, because who has the brain power to make coffee before they’ve had their coffee??

A nice set of comfortable slippers, some special lotion she’d never splurge on for herself, and a good book will do the trick!

What She Really Wants

We adore our children and would do anything at all for them.  But what every Mom really wants is a little down time.  Give her a pampering gift, but be sure to give her the time to actually use it!  Take the kids out and let Mom read a book without interruption.

Or buy a gift card for a spa, a movie with no talking animals, or a mani/pedi.  Let her enjoy a day of peace and quiet!  She’ll be recharged and ready to pamper the family again.

Still Not Sure?

Grab a copy of The 5 Love Languages.  Although it’s geared to romantic love, you will probably recognize right away which love language your Mom speaks.  And that will help you figure out what to get Mom for her birthday!
