Mother’s Day is coming up and we know you’re looking to get the hardworking moms in your life something extra special this year. It’s true, she always says you don’t have to get her anything, but what she really means is she doesn’t need another flower bouquet or box of chocolates. Why not get her something that she’ll use daily? Plus, she’ll fondly think of you every time she uses your thoughtful gift! So, if you’re looking to make mom’s life easier, try one of these personalized + practical ideas!

Commuter moms

Whether she’s traveling by car, train, or bus, she’ll appreciate having a handy tote bag to keep her items safe + secure. We have four different styles to choose from, depending on what she needs to carry with her. Our large premium cotton tote works well as a gym or grocery bag while our smaller everyday canvas tote is perfect for running quick errands.

If your mom is like most, she needs a little fuel to keep her on-the-go. Make sure her favorite beverage stays just the right temperature with our wide selection of insulated travel mugs.  We recommend the travel tumbler or the travel coffee mug with handle for their spill-proof lids. While you can help mom from spilling her drink with leakproof lids, her passengers might not be as lucky. Keep sticky juice and soda spills from clogging up her cupholders with our protective car coasters. We have several fun designs you can choose from or create your own!

Organized moms

We’re not sure how they do it, but moms are amazing at keeping track of everyone’s doctor’s appointments, music recitals, soccer games, and more. Maybe the secret to her success is writing everything down in calendars + journals — two things we know she’d love to get as gifts and even better if they’re personalized!

For calendars, we recommend customizing our premium stationery wall calendar and hanging it in a central location so the whole family can write-in their important activities as needed. One cool feature about our calendars is you can personalize special dates like anniversaries or birthdays with photos + custom text. It’s a great way to make her gift even more special.

As far as jotting down important ideas and information, she’ll adore any one of our spiral bound notebooks, hardcover journals, or softcover journals. Choose one of our exclusive designs or customize with one of her favorite photos and monogram.

Is your mom the type that always has what you need in her purse? Help her keep all her first aid essentials, makeup, snacks, and other necessities neat + tidy with our zippered canvas pouch. We have over 50 designs to choose from with cute graphics and cool phrases she’ll love. Otherwise, you can always design your own with photos, text, and embellishments! To find our embellishments, simply choose the product you want to customize and open it in our project builder. Once there, click on the “Embellishments” tab and choose Holidays > Mother’s Day or Family & Friends > Family. Here you’ll find flowers, hearts, sweet sentiments, and much more.

Work-at-home moms

During quarantine, a lot of jobs quickly converted to remote jobs, highlighting how badly our home offices were in need of upgrades. If mom has been working hard this past year, she’s definitely due for new office supplies. One easy way to elevate her workspace is with a new custom mousepad to keep her desk from unsightly scratches. Another useful item to have around the office is our leatherette desk set, keeping pens, pencils, and other items in order.

Was your mom one of the many that picked up a side hustle during quarantine? If she has to write a lot of letters or thank you notes for her new business, personalized stationery and thank you cards will make her look very professional.

Fitness moms

Whether your mom lives for the gym or just likes to take a jog around the park, she’ll appreciate having a towel to wipe away perspiration. Plus, if you personalize the towel with her photo + name, she’s less likely to lose track of it.

For the workout warriors who need to stay hydrated, try customizing one of our water bottles! Our insulated water bottle is perfect for keeping water nice and cold while mom works up a sweat. If mom goes on a lot of hikes, she’ll appreciate our stainless steel water bottle that comes with carabiner clip that she can attach to her backpack or belt loop.
