• Tell Your Friends

Like many people, it wasn’t until I moved away for college that I realized how much my mom did for me. Suddenly her frustrations about not having enough hours in the day to go to work, keep the house clean and figure out what to cook for dinner every night make a lot more sense. And I don’t even have kids yet!

I’m not sure how she did it, but I’ll be eternally grateful. So even though there aren’t enough gifts and cards in the world to show my appreciation, I figure these are a good start. Check out what made our 2014 Mother’s Day gift guide and tell us what you’re planning to do for Mom this year in the comments below.

P.S. Don’t forget stepmothers, grandmothers and in-laws! They deserve your appreciation, too!

If you’re low on cash but not fond of DIY projects, take a cue from Camille and scour estate sales, thrift stores or online sites like Ruby Lane, ebay or vintage shops on etsy to find just the thing to suit her passions.

Camille’s mom collects vintage pins and transferware dishes so she searched high and low to find two unique pieces then combined them for one pretty package her mom is sure to love:

    All awesome suggestions – love the planter idea.
    When I was looking for unique Mother's Day gifts I stumbled upon this app in the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/id686745300?mt=8. Seems like a pretty cool way to send your Mom a personal video message – I think I'll use it as an add-on to my gift.
