5 Gifts for Moms that Aren’t Flowers or Chocolate


If you click my links & make a purchase, I may receive a small commission, thank you! What do you buy for a mom? She probably doesn’t “need” anything but whether she’s your mom or just a friend who happens to be a mom, she sure does deserve something. So, what’s a gift giver to do? Default to flowers or chocolate? Nope, check out these unique ideas that she’ll love!

CAUSEBOX | A Membership That Matters

Does the mom you’re shopping for like to support artisans around the world, but you’re not quite sure what to get her? CAUSECRATE has a quarterly CAUSEBOX filled with 5-8 lifestyle products geared towards socially conscious women. Brands in the box focus on ethical & sustainable production, donate to charity, and/or empower others. This “goodness in a box” helps provide jobs, meals, education, clean water, and more to people all around the globe. Gifting a CAUSEBOX gives to more than the recipient!


I don’t know about you, but sometimes I struggle to make sure I’m feeding myself nutritious snacks while I’m caring for my kids, and has some awesome gift-y snack options. Nuts, nut butters, loads of unusual dried/freeze dried fruits and lots more.

If you want to give chocolate (ahem, chocolate covered espresso beans!), they have that too!

If you follow Man Who Has It All I think their book and a bag of almonds would be perfect for a mom friend with a sense of humor. Can’t wait until it’s available in the US!


Wine, a gift certificate for or even a custom etched bottle of wine. Because, kids. #JustSayin


Speaking of wine…how about an insulated wine bottle? Okay, okay…something other than wine. Get her an insulated water bottle that will keep her water ice cold all day.


Last, but not least…a gift certificate. If she’s a cloth diapering mom, she will totally want a gift certificate for cloth diapers and believe me, it’s not for the baby. It’s for her.

What would be your dream gift?
