Your mom is likely the most special person in your life. There is no bond stronger than that between a mother and child. This year for Mother’s Day you want to do something special, something different and unique. You want a gift that will tell a story and that will show how much she means to you – something that every time she looks at or uses it, she is reminded of her love for you. Do flowers and chocolate accomplish this? They’re sweet gestures, but this gift needs to be more uniquely you.
Lucky for you, we have some fun, unique, and meaningful gift ideas that you can use for this Mother’s Day to make it the most memorable one ever.
Something handmade and hand-created can be deeply personal and memorable. Here are some of our favorites.
Painted Portraits from Photos
PaintYourLife.com has one of our favorite gifts. You send in your favorite picture of you and your mom and their team of talented artists will turn that picture into a painting. You get to choose your favorite artist, the style of painting you want, the size of the painting and whether or not you want it framed. There is truly no gift more memorable than capturing one of your most special moments in time in a beautiful hand-painted portrait. Get the best Mother’s Day painted gift and make memories to last a lifetime. Check out some great reviews of this service on PhotoWorkout.com.
If a portrait is not in your budget, consider one of the popular photo sites that will let you upload your favorite photo and turn it into a mug. Mom can remember those special moments each morning while sipping her cup of coffee to start her day. These are great for those that have a very constricted budget.

It’s a gift filled with love and thoughtfulness. BoxFox has everything you could possibly want to create your customized box from food and beverages to journals, pens, gourmet treats, and much more.
A Letter Charm Necklace
Sometimes the sweetest gifts are the ones that seem the most simple. A classic initial letter charm necklace is something that your mother will cherish forever. It can be worn with any type of clothing, whether she’s headed to work, to the gym, or an evening out. There are numerous styles and sizes to choose from, so pick your favorite and gift her with an initial charm that has your initial on it so that she can remember how much you love her for years to come. Most of these are available in your choice of metals - silver, gold, rose-gold - and different shapes and sizes of letters.
Personalized Custom Map of any city from Grafomap
The city you were born in likely has special meaning to your mom. Grafomap will create customized map prints of the town or city of your choosing. They can be customized to match any style decor and you can even choose if you want the map to have an antique feel or a modern feel to it. Grafomap makes the process simple - go to their website and enter the zip code of the city that you want to create a map for. Then follow the step-by-step instructions for customization. You can choose to have the map framed or even put on a t-shirt.
Personalized water bottle from S’Well
If Mom’s trying to get healthier (and who isn’t?) what better gift than this sleek, beautiful S’Well reusable water bottle that you can personalize with her name or initials. S’Well is one of the best in the reusable water bottle industry, made from stainless steel, with triple-wall insulation to keep your beverage warm or cold, and backed by a guarantee. The bottles are available in 17 ounces or 25 ounces. Not only will you help mom get healthy and look good while doing it, you’ll also help save the planet by reducing plastic waste.
Don’t settle for an ordinary boring gift for Mom this year. Instead, give her something special that she will treasure forever and that she knows you put your time and careful thought into.
