Best Mother of the Bride Gifts
Mom: The woman who gave you life, lends a shoulder to cry on, likes to say “I told you so” (rightly so), and willingly sat on the roller coaster that is wedding planning with you. If there is one person who deserves to abuse the open bar, it’s her. However, something a little extra special to say thanks and remind her you will always be her little girl, would mean the world. Keep reading for some mother of the bride gift ideas that are sure to get the message across.
For the mom who likes a little bling, gift her a beautiful piece of jewelry to commemorate the special occasion. Whether she prefers a ring, bracelet or necklace, many jewelers also offer engravings for an additional price. You can include a personal note, a saying, relevant song lyrics, or just your wedding date.
A Waffle Robe
A significant step up from satin robes, a waffle robe is the ultimate gift for bath lovers. Made of absorbent materials, it is lightweight, soft to the touch, and has a simple grid-like pattern. It is perfect for a mom who was at her wits end stressing over your wedding, and deserves a relaxing night in to herself. You might also consider having it embroidered with her initials, or pairing it with some bath bombs.
A Weekend Bag
Mom’s gonna need a getaway come the end of the wedding festivities. To make packing a little easier, consider gifting her a weekend or tote bag. Something big and open that can hold numerous items, but is still easy to carry. For a cute and trendy touch, you can also have it monogrammed.
A Personalized Handkerchief
Personalized handkerchiefs have been a popular wedding gift for parents for several years now. They are easy to find on Etsy, and are available in numerous styles and with a variety of designs. You can purchase them with prewritten text, or have one custom made with a note of your own. Let your mom use the handkerchief to wipe away her tears on the big day, then have it framed in a shadow box as a keepsake.
A Spa Gift Card
After all of the stress that comes with planning and perfectly executing a wedding, your mom will want a much needed break. If she enjoys relaxation with a touch of luxury, then a gift card to her favorite spa is the way to go. This way she can splurge on a massage, a facial, or any other services she prefers.
Some moms love a gift they can look back on to reminisce. The hardcover book I Love You Mom: And Here’s Why is a gift they will pick up time and time again. It features quotes of gratitude as well as a plethora of blank pages, so that you can fill it with handwritten words and stories of your own.
For the wine loving mom, give her something that she will use on a regular basis. For example a sturdy and cute wine caddy, filled with her favorite wine of course. You might also toss in an insulated wine tumbler, perfect for a girls night out or an evening enjoying the comfort of her own couch.
