Gifts For Mom Worth Consideration Year Round

Versions of Mother's Day are celebrated around the world with varying traditions. In the United States it was first celebrated when Anna Jarvis saw it as a way to honor the sacrifices mothers made for their children. In 1914, US President Woodrow Wilson established the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. 

I have to think that many people believe Mother's Day should be something we celebrate everyday. There are times throughout the year when we simply want to surprise mom with a special gift. So to help with some ideas, I've put together  items you might consider for year round selection.


My bag design below features a multilingual word cloud thank you design in a variety of typography styles and sizes. This leather tote is part of the special Zazzle Heart project. The Zazzle mission is to give people worldwide the power to make anything imaginable. When you purchase products from The Adventure Collection, you are participating in a unique collaboration that is changing lives and communities in Kenya.

If you are thinking of something small, you might consider a custom designed watch. Zazzle watch offerings for mom include wristwatches and pocket watches These can make a great personal gift especially since many styles allow you to customize color, type and more. Some designers also off templates where you can add text personalization too.

Clothing is always a good gift choice for mom. If you live in a cooler climate or have an active mom you might consider leggings. They come in five sizes and Zazzle says "our leggings hug in all the right places and suit all body types" due to compression fit from high spandex content. I purchased a pair as a gift and it was well received.

Is your mom into technology? Most mom's carry cell phones these days so maybe she would love a new phone case with here name and initial letter like the Speck designed case below. Zazzle has thousands of choices and if it shows up for one phone brand you need to check right on that case page if it's available in other brands. Many of the phone cases are available for several phone brands and some offer different styles. You'll find case makers Otterbox, Speck, Casemate and more.

The last gift idea I'll share with you for Mom is a bag. Zazzle has messenger bags in a variety of sizes, tote bags galore, luggage, backpacks, clutches and more. The clutch bags like the daisy photograph design below come with a custom design on the outer flap. The bag is available in six colors: black, teal, charcoal, eggplant, cinnamon, and indigo. It has a detachable leather strap and button magnet to secure the fold-over flap. When folded it is 9" wide and 5" high.

  1. Hi Patricia,

    Out of all of these, I really love the flowered clutch the best! I'm not sure which my mom would like--maybe she'd like the clutch, too.


    1. Hi Carol,
      Thank you for stopping to check out the post and for leaving a comment.
      I do think anything with flowers will always be a hit with most moms.
