One of my favorite gifts that my son gave me MANY years ago was a package of envelopes and 100 3×5 cards. I used to LOVE to enter sweepstakes and back in the days BEFORE the Internet, I did it OLD SCHOOL, by mailing my entries to contests that I’d find in magazines and stores. FYI – I won a car back then (among other things), and as you can guess, I loved sitting and filling out those cards as I watched TV every evening. Moms who have hobbies love getting gifts of things like arts & crafts, cooking, sports, and reading. Here are a few reasons why:
- It shows that you care about their interests. When you give a mom a gift that she can use to pursue her hobbies, it shows that you’ve taken the time to learn about what she enjoys. This can be a really meaningful gesture, especially for moms who don’t always have a lot of time for themselves.
- It helps them relax and de-stress. Hobbies can be a great way for moms to relax and de-stress after a long day. When you give a mom a gift that she can use to pursue her hobbies, you’re giving her a way to take care of herself.
- It encourages them to spend time with their families. Many hobbies can be enjoyed by the whole family. When you give a mom a gift that she can use to spend time with her family, you’re helping to create lasting memories.
- It’s a way to show your appreciation. Moms do a lot for their families, and it’s always nice to show them how much you appreciate them. Giving a mom a gift of something she loves is a great way to do just that.
So if you’re looking for a gift that will show your mom how much you care, consider giving her something that she can use to pursue her hobbies. It’s a gift that she’s sure to love.
For the Mom who loves arts & crafts
Your mom may not don a unibrow like Frida Kahlo, but she can bring out her inner “Frida with flowers (turquoise background)” which depicts a portrait of the beautiful Mexican artist Frida Kahlo with roses in her hair. Frida was a master of self-portraiture using bold and bright colors and sitting down to paint with this kit will remind her just how much she loves the art (and the artist).
The pre-printed background features Mexican folk art design. Completing the painting can take between 3-5 hours. When completed, she can select a frame at the local craft store and display it on the wall!

For the Mom who enjoys curling up with a good book

This would be a great gift idea to get any mom who loves to read!
The Once Upon a Book Club boxes are designed to be an experience and they highly recommend only opening the gifts as you read the featured book to fully understand the connection each item has to the story.

For the active mom
We are a golfing family. Well, sort of. My husband plays a lot of golf and I try. That’s the way it is with golf, you keep trying and trying and trying, and while it can be very frustrating, it can also be a lot of fun. For me, the best part of getting out on the course is getting dressed and looking the part (and driving the golf cart).
Volition offers golf apparel for women that has an interesting focus. You may have caught Rach & me wearing our Volition America t-shirts on a past episode of The Compass Girls show. If you haven’t heard of this brand yet, they are disrupting the industry as America’s apparel brand, uniting Americans and nations under a common goal to use the power of choice to effect positive change. With options ranging from shoes to sunglasses, and skirts as well as hats and apparel for the golf course. They offer great gifts to get mom something special this Mother’s Day.
Volition has partnered with high-profile brands like Puma to give back to fallen soldiers and first responders. As America’s brand, Volition celebrates our country by donating proceeds to severely injured soldiers and first responders through Folds of Honor, a nonprofit foundation that provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members.
>>> Why not get mom a great new golf outfit at Volition America? Maybe she’ll even get a hole-in-one.
Is your mom wanting to get into a new habit with all her free time (now that she’s FINALLY got you out of the house)? Gift her a Loft Go! 7D EQ Step-Thru E-bike available in beautiful summer pastel colors, the newly launched Loft Go! 7D EQ is a perfect e-bike for those city-living moms. This modern-day classic was designed with both versatility and style in mind for rides to the neighborhood café or market. As an older mom myself (almost 70 years old), I love the IDEA of going for a long leisurely bike ride down to the beach, but I worry that I won’t have the stamina to make it back after a day of biking and swimming. This E-bike takes all of the worry out of that as she can use the electric power to get herself back home.
Hip moms love their coffee and need that fuel to get them through the day! Say “I love you, Mom” with the Running Latte Forward Twister Bike Bell. It’s bold, cute and provides a pleasant ringing sound all around town.
She may love this so much that she MIGHT just start a bikers club of her own…anyone want to join The Champagne Bubbles?
Does your mom have any passions or hobbies that she absolutely LOVES? Remember those this Mother’s Day and surprise her with an extra special gift that shows you care.
