It gets more challenging to come up with gift ideas each year because let’s face it, moms always say they don’t need a thing. And we don’t. But that won’t stop us from hanging on to a painted rock a young son made decades ago. This is one of those rather evergreen gift guides for women, just as relevant for birthdays. Bet you’ll discover something lovely within this collection of Pretty Little Gifts for Mother’s Day & Beyond along with silly whimsical quotes to pin.
I independently selected products in this post—if you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.
Pretty Little Gifts for Mother’s Day & Humor Quotes
Spa-like Gifts for Mom
So grateful for the opportunity to test drive this heart-shaped rose quartz stone and lovely potions from Lily & Miel! The pretty little pink stone is perfectly sized and shaped for relief (especially during Spring’s allergy season!).
A trip to the spa is a wonderful self-care gift, but here’s an at-home experience from Lily & Miel for multiple treatments at a friendlier price point.
Crochet Raffia Sun Hat of Dreams
Years ago, a photographer friend owned a huge, romantic raffia hat not unlike this one. It was a traveling hat, and she snapped photos of her friends and family in that could easily fool you as editorial.
This hat looks amazing on everyone at any age, from girls to grannies, and I can’t imagine it ever going out of style!
With the #coastalgrandmother theme spiraling out of control everywhere, you just know this particular hat will sell out!
Look How Cheerful!
Skin Soothing Loveliness

Echo Dot Smart Speaker
Here’s a voice-controlled smart speaker with Alexa which is perfect for any room.
It can sit on mom’s nightstand (she can ask it to set an alarm and tap the top to snooze). You can also stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Sirius, etc.
As folks let go of too much screen time, renewed interest in unplugged pursuits rises…
With 400 lined pages, there is plenty of space to capture her thoughts!
This coffee mug is just right for sipping and journaling.
And is your mama a coffee mom? If she focuses on a plant-based diet like me (an almond milk kinda iced coffee mom!), maybe she would enjoy what I recently discovered…an easy, more economical way to make your own almond milk.
BONUS: If you have ever made cauliflower pizza crust, then you know the step in the process where the liquid must be squeezed from the cauliflower. This nifty bag made from fine Italian mesh makes the job an easier squeeze!
Did you even know that Rifle Paper Co (known for their beautifully designed stationery) expanded their offerings to include sleepwear and even furniture now!?!
I can imagine these slip-ons going with absolutely everything from flouncy prairie skirts to white denim and everything in between.
I love how folks are mixing patterns and prints with abandon now…makes dressing so much easier!
Because sweet shapes. And tea.
