Mother’s Day: Ideas On Gifts and How You Can Spend Time with Your Mom


Mother’s Day is coming up, and you might be worried that you don’t have anything planned for Mother’s Day. Fortunately, we got a couple of ideas you can use to help make your mom’s day incredibly special. 

Ideas on What to Do With Your Mom 

  • Go on a Trip with Your Mom 

If your mother is the adventurous type, take her on a journey. If she’s a fan of hiking, take on a trail that she has never gone before or maybe even on a trail she has been on in a long time. If she’s a fan of beaches, consider taking her on a weekend trip to one of the many beaches of South Carolina (personal suggestion: Hilton Head Island or Tybee Island). Alternatively, if you decide to stay in town, take her to Clarks Hill Lake. 

If your mom is an animal lover, take her up to the Riverbank Zoo, especially if she hasn’t been there in a while. Or if your mom wants to stay in town and doesn’t feel like going to any beaches, consider a trip to Downtown Augusta and take her on the Riverwalk. Or maybe even a simple journey through a park (personal recommendation: Phinizy Swamp). 

  • Take Your Mother Out to Dinner in Augusta

Nothing screams, “Mom, I appreciate and love you,” like a nice dinner. Of course, the restaurant you take your mother will depend entirely on taste. If it’s Italian, try Augustino’s or Luigi’s. If she’s a fan of Asian cuisine, try Koi Hibachi or Soy Noodle House. If she enjoys Indian food, take her to the Taj of India. 

  • How about a Shopping Spree? 

Your mother might appreciate a trip to the mall or to one of the many plazas in the Augusta-Aiken area. Downtown Augusta is an obvious choice, and of course, there’s the Augusta Mall (which is only growing in popularity). 


Ideas on What to Get for Your Mother 

The best gift you can get your mother is one with much thought behind it. You could always create a scrapbook for your mother. Alternatively, you could create a photo book filled with her favorite photos of her and her dearest loved ones. You could fill it with pictures of the two of you together. That’s truly something she would cherish. Of course, a bouquet of flowers wouldn’t hurt. 

Floral Arrangments 


  • Roses (No Red Ones)

Roses are excellent choices for traditional mothers. However, you want to steer clear of red roses. Red roses are specifically for your romantic partner, not your mom. Consider pink roses, which symbolize appreciation, love, and gratitude. That’s a great way to tell your mom (if she knows flower language) that you appreciate what she has done for you. Another great alternative would be cream-colored roses which represent thoughtfulness. You could even gift her white roses that symbolize purity. 

  • Tulips 

Tulips are probably one of the best flowers you can get your mother (its my personal favorite). And unlike roses, you don’t have to be too careful with which colors you choose for your mom. However, if your mother speaks flowers, she might appreciate these. Pink and white tulips stand for affection and cheerfulness. It’s a fabulous bouquet for any happy, loving mom. Or, if you want to gift your mom a royal present, consider giving a bouquet of purple tulips. 

  • Carnations 

Carnations: perhaps the most iconic and loveliest flowers to gift someone (with roses being the obvious exception). But just like with roses, you must be careful with your colors here. The best choice for carnations is pink carnations, which represent a mother’s love. However, if you really want to show off your flower language skills, try white carnations, which represent pure love and good luck. 

  • Orchids 

Orchids are best reserved for mothers who can appreciate the trendy look of these long-branched flowers. And if your mom is looking for a new house plant, you’re in luck because these gorgeous plants could strive for ages. You can be much less picky with orchids, but if you want a safe bet, try pink, which represents elegance, poise, and feminity. 


Specific Gift Ideas 

If Your Mother’s a Bookworm 

Your mom is a bookworm. The answer almost seems too obvious. Get her some more books. Only you know your mom best. You know who her favorite writers are or what genre she likes. Just be careful not to get her a book that she already owns (it happens to the best of us). 

On the flip side, your motherly bookworm might not want more books. It might be because she’s run out of space to store them. In that case, a bookshelf would be the proper gift to get her. Now, if she doesn’t have a whole lot of space for another large bookshelf, you could always get a nice corner bookshelf. That works incredibly well if she only has a few books she can’t store anywhere. 

If Your Mom is a Cineophile 

If your cinephile mom doesn’t already have a home theater, she would most likely appreciate it if you either got a brand-new (bigger) smart tv. However, if she already has that, she might enjoy a nice set of speakers to accompany her tv. Also, feel free to buy your mom Blu-rays of her favorite movies. You might be thinking we have Netflix/Amazon Prime, why would I get her Blu-Rays? Sadly, there’s never any guarantee that you’ll find your favorite title on one of your streaming services anymore. Unless you only watch originals, many movies switch from platform to platform and never see a permanent streaming home. And even if you have all the major streaming services, your mother might appreciate having a disc of her favorite film than having to search which one of her streaming services has which title. 

If She’s a Gardner 

If your mom has a garden, there’s a lot you could do here. Consider upgrading some of her gardening equipment. She might be a little reluctant to buy herself some new hand shears, but she definitely would accept new ones. Is there a specific plant she’s longed to have in her garden? Here’s your chance to get it for her. If not, look at your mother’s garden and consider what she usually grows. Try not to get her something she already has (especially if she has a whole bunch of one type of plant). Too many similar plants can decrease the soil quality of her garden. If she likes growing flowers, consider getting her some Columbines, or if she prefers darker colors, some Asters. Suppose she wants something that will stand out, try some Blanket Flowers or even Butterfly Bushes. Whichever plant you land on, make sure it matches her taste and the general color of her garden. 

If Your Mother’s Heavy on Fashion….

Jewelry! Jewelry is a bit on the pricey side, but no one can argue that it’s an incredible gift to get your mother on that extraordinary day. Consider getting your mother an elegant, thin bracelet with a floral or star design for its medallion. Or, if you want to hone in on the sentimental value of her gift, engrave your initials on her necklace. It’ll give her something to remember you by. 

You Know Your Mom Best 

In the end, you know your mom better than we do. You know what she is into and what she doesn’t like. So, trust yourself and work with other loved ones to make Mother’s Day special.
