Waft Personalized Perfume

Do you want to outdo your siblings this Mother’s Day? Waft is the perfect unique gift idea for you then.

All you must do is gift mom the experience of making her own custom bottle of perfume and she heads to the website, answers some quick questions, names her fragrance, and waits for her perfume to arrive. You automatically win the best child of the year award!

Sounds simple enough, right? Head on over and enter GIVE4Mom at checkout and receive 10% off your order. She’ll love it!

I had the chance to create a fragrance and it smells amazing, not to mention the fact that it arrived super quick.

NudeStix Magnetic Matte Lip Pencils

NudeStix is sweeping the nation as being a Lip Tattoo. If mom is a fan of cosmetics and wants to keep her lips balanced and fresh, this is a product she will absolutely love.

No more worrying about the grandkids walking around with lipstick lips on their cheeks from grandma. These magnetic matte lip pencils won’t budge. Mom can drink, kiss, and more without leaving even the slightest stain behind.

Are you looking for a unique #MothersDay gift idea? If so, consider purchasing mom some cosmetics that she is sure to love. One company that stands out, in particular, is @Nudestix! Their Magnetic Matte Lip Color AKA #LipTattoo is nothing but the truth!

NOTE: Do not put lip gloss over top of it. This will cause it to smudge.

Soakees Slip – On and Tie Foot Bath Booties

Soakees Slip-On and Tie Foot Bath Booties are not only a unique gift idea, but the product story is interesting also. They originated from a “Slip-on boot” for horses.

Did you know that soaking your feet for twenty minutes in warm water will enhance your sleep?

What makes Soakees stand out from other foot soak products is that you get the benefits that come with soaking your feet in water and not sketchy chemicals, but don’t have to use a large foot tub.

Moms love this because even though it still requires them to be sitting down they can use it anywhere in their home and don’t have to worry about making a mess.

They are perfect for work at home moms because they allow you to work from your desk while soaking your feet.

Flytographer Gift Card

Flytographer is an innovative way to make family trips memorable. You can pay for a 1-hour vacation shoot and have a local photographer make sure you have a beautiful collection of family photos to take home.

Flytographer has been in business since 2013, I was surprised to know they existed.

Nicole, the founder, knows what it is like to return home with blurry photos and awkward selfies so she’s made it her mission to make sure no one else experiences this.

This is the ideal service to treat traveling moms too.

Stockpile Gift Card

Is your mom into investing or do you want to introduce her to that world?

Stockpile is an app that allows you to invest in your favorite companies. I’m talking about places such as PayPal, Amazon, Jamba Juice and more. The best part is you don’t have to invest hundreds of dollars to get started. Some stocks require less than $10.

They have gift cards, which makes them a great last minute gift for mom.

HP Instant Ink Subscription

HP Instant Ink is a lifesaver for moms, especially those with young children. Give mom the gift of never running out of ink.

As a mom that prints off a lot of things each week ranging from business documents to printables for the kids, this is a gift that you can be positive that your mom will use. Nothing is worse than needing to print something urgent only to find out that you don’t have enough ink.

Barrows Intense

Gifting wine has become quite the norm over the years, but wine just isn’t for everyone. This is an ideal unique gift for moms who love cocktails but stick to what they know.

Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur is a handcrafted spirit created with fresh ginger.  If mom loves ginger, this is the perfect gift for her to be able to try out some cocktails.

VisAcuity.com Reading Glasses

Does your mom wear reading glasses?

How about providing her with some new ones that fit her style?

VisAcuity.com is a cool online boutique that has a variety of reading glasses available for mom. Mom won’t be expecting this, but you can be sure this gift will not go unappreciated as it’s something she can use daily.

Nonna Box Subscription

Does grandma love to cook?

Treat her to a monthly subscription service that brings the best Italian food to her door. She will be able to try out some new recipes and experience the most in demand products in Italy.

Nonna Box is a gift that you can be positive mom will enjoy.

Beessential Lovely Lavender Gift Set

Beessential is a company that is mostly known for their lip products. However, they have a full range of products ranging from soap to hair care.

The Lovely Lavender Gift Set is a Mother’s Day gift idea that caught my eye.

I love lavender personally because it helps when I am stressed or just need to unwind. However, this gift set contains everything a mom could ever need to relax from a long day of work. She will have her body wash, body cream, candle, and lip balm.

You can even add a personalized note to remind her to take care of herself.

Could you use the perfect gift for mom? Check out the Lavender Love Gift Pack from @beessentialbdcr !It combines all of mom’s favorites into one. They will be featured in #Giveaways4Mom’s Unique Mother’s Day Gifts guide along with a few other companies.

Angel Shave Club Subscription

I believe in giving out unique gifts that I can be sure will be used. An Angel Shave Club Subscription falls into this category.

Why I obviously wouldn’t go out and purchase a pack of razors from the store and call it a day, Angel Shave Club lets you get creative when gifting. This gift idea is ideal for moms who have it all – give her something that she is always going to need!

They make sure that mom never runs out of razors again while wrapping it in attractive packaging. It’s a very thoughtful gift that will give mom one less thing to remember adding to her shopping list.

1800 Baskets Planted with Love Gift Basket

The one thing I love about gift baskets is they are so diverse. While some gift baskets are traditionally given out, you can come across some unique ones that really stand out.

One of them is the Planted with Love Gift Basket from 1800 Baskets. While it has the traditional cookies and chocolates, it stands out with its Gourmet Chocolate Cake Mix that can be cooked in a flower pot. Once the cake is gone, mom can put her favorite plants into the flower pot as well.

Do you want to give mom a gift basket, but want it to be unique? Check out the “Planted With Love Basket” from @1800Baskets (https://www.1800baskets.com/planted-with-love-gift-basket-162142)! Not only are the goodies inside of here enough to make any mom smile with delight, but the cake can be baked in the flower pot before mom uses it for her flowers. Now, how cool is that? #Giveaways4Mom #lifestyleblogger #Virginiablogger #MotherDay #uniquegiftideas #Mothersdaygifts #gifts

Mindware Paint Your Own Stepping Stone

My mom loves being out in her backyard during the summer and she uses stepping stones. My aunt is also really into yard work and the boy’s grandma loves being in the yard as well. Therefore, when I saw the Butterfly and Turtle Paint Your Own Stepping Stone, I knew this would make a great gift for moms who enjoy yard work.

They are fun to paint and personalized AND they are weather proof. Every time mom goes outside she will be reminded of you. Plus, she gets to make her friends a little jealous because it shows that you put some thought into her gift and it is something that will last, unlike flowers, cards, and candy.

FlexiSpot Sit-Stand Desktop Risers

If mom works from home, one of the best gifts that you can give her is a home office makeover. However, updating her entire office can be expensive. So, start with something that she could really use.

FlexiSpot Sit-Stand Desktop Risers are not only appealing in a home office, but they encourage moms to stand more during their workdays instead of being glued to their chair. This gift is like a two in one because you are helping mom with her work while also looking out for her health. By standing more while working she will burn calories, improve her posture, and even improve blood circulation.

Closing Thoughts on Unique Gifts for Mom

I know from experience how hard it can be to shop for my mom on Mother’s Day, birthdays, and Christmas. When I shop for her or other female relatives I must really think out of the box because they just seem to have everything. I know I am not the only one, so I hope those of you who need unique gifts for Mother’s Day and even other gifting occasions can find one of these products to be the perfect match.
