Mother’s Day Gifts for the Minimalist Mom



This is the perfect gift for any mom, especially one who doesn’t want ‘just one more thing’. A Fitbit will not only be a lovely accessory, but also a practical gift that will encourage self care. Remind the mom in your life that her health is just as important as her family’s.


Photo Session 

What mom wouldn’t love having professional photos taken of her family? This mother’s day gift will continue giving year after year as the memories remain hung on the wall. Most photographers give gift certificates that can be used whenever it is convenient. If the photographer allows, making it a multigenerational photo session will make it extra special.


Amazon Prime 

Whether it’s diapers, household essentials, or something else, Amazon has ‘everything’ and a Prime membership will provide free shipping, special deals and more. Plus the membership lasts for an entire year! There are other great benefits of Prime as well, such as access to hundreds of shows and movies for free. (You might want to pick up one of these for yourself as well!)


Photography Course 

Giving the gift of an online photography course will allow your special mom to learn photography on her time from the comfort of her home. Let’s face it, there’s not a lot of time to get out and learn these things when you have kids at home. Photography Masterclass covers everything from manual mode to composition, portraits to landscapes, and SO much more. If you have a photography loving mom or one who wishes her photos had a little extra, this course would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift.


Kindle Unlimited 

Does your mom love to read? Give her the gift of thousands of books with a kindle unlimited membership. She will have access to so many popular titles with new ones being added all the time. She doesn’t have to have a kindle device to read the audio books so whatever device she has should work just fine. Just download the free kindle reading app and she will be good to go. Take a peek at all the perks of having a kindle unlimited membership. And if you do want to throw in a kindle, this one is my favorite!



Meal Service 

We all know how stressful mealtimes can be. Turn this everyday chore into something to look forward to with a meal service like Hello Fresh. This mother’s day gift is both practical and exciting.


Skin Care Products 

Moms tend to put themselves last ALL. THE. TIME. Giving Skin Care products is sure to bring a smile to any mom’s face.My highest recommendation for skin care products is Rodan and Fields. Rodan and Fields is the number one skincare company in the US and continues to dominate the skin care industry. Sign your mom up as a preferred customer ($19.95 one time fee) and she can get 10% off, free shipping, and special deals for life. Encourage your mom to take care of herself this Mother’s Day.

Family Portrait 

This is such a beautiful gift and one you need to see to truly appreciate. This amazing artist will paint a family portrait that will be cherished for a lifetime. These portraits are one of a kind, unique, pieces of art that will show your mom just how much you love her.


Cleaning Service 

Similar to a meal service, gifting a house cleaning service provides a much needed break from the everyday household chores, and more time for your mom to do the things she loves. Even if it is just a one time thing, one deep cleaning done by someone else will feel like a magical gift! Did you know you can easily order services like this through Amazon Home Services?



Recreated Photo 

This one can be great for your mom as a grandma. Find a photo of your mom and you, you and your siblings when you were young, or your whole family, and recreate the photo. It might be you and your kids matching the photo of your mom and you/your siblings when you were young. Or it might be a photo of you and your siblings when you were young and then the same photo recreated with you and your siblings now. You can be creative and have fun with this one and no matter what the outcome, your mom will love it.


Message and/or Haircut 

An hour of relaxation never hurt anyone. A massage or haircut are a perfect Mother’s Day gift.


Thrive Market 

Thrive market is an online marketplace where you can buy organic food and other goodies at wholesale prices. A yearly membership costs less than $60 and on top of the super low prices, your mom will get 20% off her first 3 orders. She will love getting organic, non GMO food at a fraction of the cost and it is all shipped right to her door.


I’m sure you’d agree with me that there is no gift in the entire world that could pay a mom back for all she has done, but the Mother’s Day gifts above are sure to make her feel special. These gifts will keep on giving long after the day has passed. I would love to hear your ideas too! Add to this list in the comments below!
