A custom recipe cutting board is the best gift for any mom who loves cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

There are also numerous plant delivery services to choose from, regardless of where you or your mom may be located. If you are putting together your own little green gift for mom this Mother’s Day, be sure to include a gorgeous new pair of gardening gloves too! No avid gardener can ever have too many quality gardening gloves.
4. Chocolate Gift Hamper
There are few people in the world who don’t swoon over chocolate, and if mom just so happens to be a chocoholic like the rest of us, we’re certain her eyes will light up when she receives a glorious chocolate hamper this Mother’s Day. Try to find a chocolate gift hamper that’s packed to the brim with all of her favorite sweet treats, ranging from artisanal rocky road to rich drinking chocolate.
And if your mom has a more adventurous palate, why not try finding specialty chocolates that are infused with dynamic tastes like rum or perhaps even hot sauce? Hampers that consist of specialty chocolates are an experience in themselves that every passionate foodie mom would be delighted to receive this Mother’s Day.
5. Candle Subscription Box
Who doesn’t love the perfume of a brand new scented candle? This Mother’s Day, treat mom to a candle subscription box that will keep her on her toes month after month. Candle subscription services generally offer 3, 6, or 12-month subscriptions and send out candles of different scents and styles on a monthly basis. Each candle comes with at least 50 hours of burn time and is hand wrapped in our custom tissue paper, so your mom will be able to make use of this particular gift for many months to come!
6. The Complete Spa Experience
No one deserves to be pampered more than mom, so gift mom with an experience that will allow her to let her hair down this Mother’s Day. Book her in for the complete spa experience at your local spa or sauna. Chances are that she’d absolutely love a day that consists of a full body massage, manicure, facial and more, followed by a delicious light lunch at a local cafe to end the day on a vibrant, coffee-scented note.
7. A Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets have been all the rage in recent years, and with good reason too. Weighted blankets are inspired by a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation, which uses firm, controlled pressure to induce a feeling of calm. Nothing beats snuggling up under one at the end of a long and stressful day, making it the ideal gift for any busy mom this Mother’s Day.
8. Digital Photo Frame
Last but not least, a digital photo frame makes for the ultimate Mother’s Day gift if you’re looking to inspire a sense of nostalgia in mom. Digital photo frames are incredibly simple to set up and use, and you could even invite friends and family to add treasured photos from afar via an application on their smartphone.
