This might be 99% selfish because this mother’s day gift guide is pretty much a wish list for myself. Although, I do consider myself very qualified in creating this gift guide, as I am a mom myself.
BUT… I figured that if this mama finds joy and excitement in every single one of these items, chances are other moms out there will have the same wish and urge to party when she opens up her gift!
But really, all these gift ideas are perfect for any lady in your life for any gift giving occasions!
Pick any one gift (or several because each is under $25!) from the list and consider yourself moved up to the position of the new favorite.
When I pull together gift guides like this one or my frugal girl’s gift guide, I try to imagine myself opening up the present. Would I be excited or would I have to put on my fake “I love it” face?
That’s pretty much the qualifications to make the cut. Oh and all gifts had to cost $25 or less!
Every single item on this mother’s day gift guide passed the test with the highest grade possible!
Don’t you HATE looking at gift guides and they are all the same exact thing… spatulas, mixers, a watch, socks… so stinking boring!
There is a TON of thought that has gone into this mother’s day gift guide in hopes to make the decision an easy one for you!
Amazon Prime is my Favorite!
It’s becoming a problem actually. Amazon Prime is making it crazy easy to find exactly what I’m looking for, at a great price, free two day delivery, and ensuring a great product thanks to all the reviews.
HUGE PROBLEM! I think I am addicted.
Because most of “my favorite picks” are found on Amazon (see pre-stated reasons), I thought I should just mention that Amazon Prime offers FREE 2 day shipping on pretty much everything and you can try out a FREE 30 day trial. Ah-mazing!
I don’t have time to get into the other million (okay not literally) benefits of Amazon Prime Membership like free movies and shows, Prime Pantry, and Prime Now. Cough cough… meal planning made easier! But with a free trial, there really isn’t anything to loose!

If you follow anyone on social media that lives in Utah, I am betting you have heard about Swig! Am I right? If you have no idea what I am talking about, Swig is like the #1 cookie shop in all of Utah and now you can order their cookie and frosting mix (all in one box) online! Ta-da! Each box on Amazon costs about $12, which whips up about a dozen LARGE sugar cookies. It’s the most fun way I can think of to have no fail fresh baked cookies! Buy a box (or more) here!

Speaking of saving time on journaling, gifting a subscription to Chatbooks or just a book or two (prices start at only $8 per book) is a great gift idea that will only take her 30 seconds to set up!
Chatbooks is a simple way to have a photo book created automatically for her every time her Instagram feed includes 60 pictures. My favorite thing about Chatbooks is that she can choose to have the picture description printed under the photo in the book. Such a fun way to keep memories tangible in her home!

You might not be able to hire a personal chef for her, but there is a way to make dinner time a crazy amount LESS stressful for her! Once A Month Meals is a customized freezer meal planning online service that allows you to easily get an entire month’s worth of meals planned out 100% catered to what your family actually eats.
It pulls together an entire grocery list, prep list, and cooking list to make life easy. THEN teaches you how to prep an entire months worth of meals in one day to be stored in your freezer until ready to be eaten. Amazing!
These things are so dang cute! A mini portable crockpot that she can bring with her on the go. Anywhere there is an outlet, she can have a hot meal ready to go when she is ready to eat. It might not sound that exciting, but let me tell you, when I was a working mom, I got tired really quick of the same cold lunch every day. I would have kissed whoever would have gifted me this!
