She’s the person you call on the good days, the bad days, and every day in between: Mom! This year, show your mom how much you love her with these creative Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Whether you live down the street from her or you’re miles away, these ideas will bring a smile to her face on February 14th.
What to Get Your Mom for Valentine’s Day
A bouquet subscription
Flowers are a classic Valentine’s Day gift for mom (or anyone!), but why not step it up a notch? Give your mom the gift of fresh flowers every month with a bouquet subscription service. She’ll love having a bright and cheery bouquet in her home, and she’ll think of how much you love her every time she opens her door to find a vase-full of blooms!
A local wine tasting
Is your mom a wine enthusiast? Gift her with a virtual wine tasting — and join her for the experience! With a virtual tasting, you can choose a vineyard that’s hard to visit in real life, whether it’s across the country or on the other side of the world.
If you’re lucky enough to live close to your mom, make her a fancy cheese board and take it over to enjoy together with your wine tasting. Even if you live far away, you can still enjoy the tasting together thanks to the magic of video conferencing (just be sure to find a winery that can ship your wines to your respective homes!).
DIY Valentine’s Gifts for Mom
Want to give from the heart? Make something yourself! Get inspired with these DIY Valentine’s gifts for mom and create something she’ll cherish.
An herb garden for her kitchen
Does your mom love to cook? Put together an herb garden that’ll add both function and beauty to her kitchen! Upcycle a simple wooden box into a planter, or line an inexpensive basket or wooden crate with plastic for a one-of-a-kind container.
Add three or four of her favorite herbs, and watch her face light up when you give her your adorable countertop garden. For extra Valentine’s Day flair, make heart-shaped plant ID stakes from red card stock and small skewers.
A custom picture frame
Ready to channel your inner crafter? Bust out the paint, scrapbook paper, or mod podge and turn a plain craft store or dollar store frame into something beautiful. Cover your frame in scrapbook paper that nods to your mom’s hobbies (like a floral print or musical-themed paper), or create a design that’s all your own with paint and a bit of artistic flair. Put a picture of you and your mom inside, then write her a sweet note on the back of the frame. Whether you live near or far, she’ll love having such a thoughtful piece of home décor that reminds her of you.
Cute Things to Do for Your Mom on Valentine’s Day
Sometimes the best things aren’t “things” at all! Create memories she’ll cherish for a lifetime with these cute things to do for your mom on Valentine’s Day.
A fresh and clean house
Is there anything better than a tidy house? Give your mom the gift of guilt-free relaxation and hire a cleaning service to get her home in tip-top shape. Even if you live far away from your mom, you can schedule a local service from afar. Your mom can kick up her feet and breathe a sigh of relief and take some much-needed “her” time once housework is off her to-do list.
A homemade dinner
Your mom has always worked hard to make you feel loved, and it’s time to return the favor. If you live close by, invite her over for an evening and spoil her with a fancy dinner. Make all her favorite foods and serve her at the dining room table — just like in a restaurant! Make a playlist of music she loves and decorate with her favorite flowers for an extra special touch.
