Our favorite Mother’s Day Gifts (And we should know. We’re moms!)

With Mother’s Day creeping up, we thought it would be fun to ask our contributors which special goodies from our Mother’s Day Gift Guide they’ve got their eyes on. Lots of different mamas, lots of different choices. Do they match up with yours?

What a gorgeous, personalized, grown-up, non-diaper bag! With no diapers in it! – Lexi

Mother's Day gift ideas: put kids' art on canvas

I am one of Those Moms who can’t bear to part with any of my kids’ artwork. But there’s one “family portrait” in particular that I’d love printed on canvas so I could hang it over my desk and sigh over it all day long. – Liz

Mother's Day gift ideas: Candle

Whether it’s the keys on the faceted porcelain or the scent of pomegranate and white pepper, I find myself utterly charmed by this candle (which I would never buy for myself.) – Delilah

Mother's Day gift ideas: Mom tattoo pillow

I love that this pillow is equal parts sass and style. It makes me smile, and that’s the best gift a mom could ask for. – Eva

Mother's Day gift ideas: Elva Fields necklace

I’ve already got one Elva Fields necklace, is coveting another being greedy? I hope not. -Kristen

Never mind conventional wisdom about sentimental gifts; the iRobot Scooba is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for me. – Julie

Mother's Day gift ideas: jewelry

I just bought a bunch of bangles from 31 bits as an early Mother’s Day gift for me, and I love how they all look on my arm. But I especially love how something so pretty also helps others in need. – Christina

Mother's Day gift ideas: fragrance

You can never go wrong with a great smelling fragrance. Jasmin is an absolute favorite of mine. – Kirsten

Mother's Day gift idea: tattoo

Don’t get me wrong–I love me Downton Abbey–but I’m a sucker for tattoos. I was recently gifted a design of my boys’ names and am thinking that Mother’s Day is just the right occasion to finally get inked again. Isaac & Ollie 4 Eva. – Stacie

Mother's Day gift idea: custom ring

My plain wedding band is engraved with our wedding date and my husband’s name–I love that the kids can now get the same treatment – Roxanna

    I know my mom would kill me if I got her name tattooed on me, but I never though of the other way around! Seriously, these are all great and very diverse ideas. Since my mom is into her soaps and reality TV, I’m getting her a Sling Adapter so that she can watch live TV on the go. I learned about this ability to watch TV on Smart phones and tablets from Dish when I started working for them, and so far, it’s been a great gift for my brother and my dad. My mom is always bugging my dad to use his, so I figured I’d just get her one of her own. I think she might like it better than an appointment with my tattoo artist — lol.
