Year after year (and this year on May 11), we try to come up with the most unique gifts ideas for our moms: something she'll make use of, something she'll cherish or something that will make us her favourite child.
Typical gifts like flowers or jewelry are always safe bets for Mother's Day, but this year we're focusing on gifts your mother will use on a day-to-day basis. Maybe she's in need of a new coffee maker, a purse, or maybe she needs to dabble in a new hobby like yoga. Whatever the case, these gifts below target specific personalities and price points.
And though they say they only want a pretty bouquet, when it comes down to the mom population, turns out moms don't even really want flowers to begin with. A 2013 survey revealed Canadian moms preferred vacations, spa treatments and tech gadgets — who wouldn't?
But if those gifts are out of the question, we've rounded up 26 gifts for every kind of Mom out there. All you need is a homemade card (yes, do it) to go with it.
