Mother’s Day 2020 is just around the corner. In fact, it’s on Sunday, May 10th, which is only two weeks and one day away! Are you ready?
In lieu of one of my (new – ever since I had my son in 2017) favorite holidays, I wanted to provide my people (you are my people!) with some of the best resources for Mother’s Day.
I sought out some of my favorite mommy friends and bloggers and asked them what their suggestions for Mother’s Day were – and they sure did come through! This post has Mother’s Day crafts, Mother’s Day gift ideas, Mother’s Day recipes, Mother’s Day activities, and so much more!
So, settle under that nice cozy blanket of yours, grab yourself a hot tea, and let’s get to it!

Top 20+ Mother’s Day Ideas for 2020
Store-Bought Gifts for Mother’s Day
Let’s start with the category that most (ahem…) men will be looking for frantically come Saturday May 9th! The gifts!
I have another category below for homemade gifts and DIY’s, but let’s just start with the gifts you can buy online and have shipped to your mom.
- Suchot from The Curious Frugal has a list of 10 Frugal Mother’s Day Gifts that won’t make you look cheap if you buy them for your mom – promise.
- Tawna from What Grandma’s Do has provided a list of 17 Gifts You Can Have Shipped to your mom for Mother’s Day. I really love the idea of the Nespresso Machine! What a great idea for someone who loves coffee!
- Iva from Food by Iva has a List of Gifts That You Can Give Your “Healthy” Mama – but honestly, they are gifts that any mom would enjoy – healthy or not!
- Alice from Mommy to Mom has a nice List of Unique Gifts You Can Get Your Mom for Mother’s Day. And wait until you see some of them – the water jug with reminders about when to drink water is my favorite! So useful!
- Lorna from Savings Champs has a really nice List of 20 Gorgeous Pieces of Jewelry for Mom’s on Mother’s Day. I love the different types of jewelry in this list – you will love it!
- In my recent post about What Your Wife Really Wants for Mother’s Day, I list some of my top gifts for giving to your mom for Mother’s Day. Make sure you check that out! My two favorites are this watch and this handbag. You can’t go wrong with either!
DIY Gifts & Crafts for Mother’s Day
Let’s face it – although women definitely want something store-bought for Mother’s Day, they also really appreciate anything you make on your own – whether it’s from her husband, children, or parents – it doesn’t matter. It’s all super special and women are very grateful for handmade gifts.
Let’s get right into the top handmade gifts to make (or have your children make) for Mother’s Day 2020.
- Julie from Fab Working Mom Life has a list of over 35 Mother’s Day Crafts that Children Can Make and you absolutely have to see it! I personally love the flower pot handprint the most!
- Arti from Escape Writers has a great idea for a Mother’s Day Gift: A Small Poem Collection for and about Mother’s – don’t blame me if you shed a tear while reading. These poems would be perfect printed out and placed on paper painted by your children – the ideas are endless on how to personalize this.
- Glenda from Nocturnal Mom has a super sweet idea for Grandmother’s on Mother’s Day – a DIY Print Out Just for Grandmother’s! It includes a list of questions you can have your child ask their grandmother. It would make a keepsake that any mom on Mother’s Day would cherish forever.
- DIY Gifts & Crafts don’t have to get too crazy – my husband has had my son place his handprints on a piece of paper for every Mother’s Day – and I love it. He always cuts it out into the shape of a heart and I then laminate it so I can keep it forever. This would be a great craft for any age child to do.
Activities for Mother’s Day
I had quite a few readers and colleagues send me ideas for activities to do on Mother’s Day – and I loved them. Since we’re living in quarantine right now, we are a bit limited – but with the following ideas, I don’t think anyone will feel limited at all on Mother’s Day!
- Natalie from Simply Keeping Mummy Sane goes over 5 Free & Easy Ways to Spoil Mum on Mother’s Day. Number one, while very well-known, is a must-do for mommies on Mother’s Day – trust me!
- Tiffany from Mommy of Mayhem posted about What Moms Really Want on Mother’s Day – and I loved it. She mentioned “getting along” as one of the things women want – and let me say – she is right! We want nothing more than that on Mother’s Day out of every single day of the year.
- Daynia from MommySlay! posted about activities for Mother’s Day during Quarantine and what a genius idea this was! I really love that she goes over things like at-home barbecues as things we can do on Mother’s Day to celebrate with our family at home.
- In my recent post about What Your Wife Really Wants on Mother’s Day, I go over a few board games that I find fun to do with my kiddos & would love to do on Mother’s Day this year. My favorite game for playing with older kids is Catan – it’s awesome. For younger kids, Uno or Candyland is super fun and easy to do! Don’t forget to get creative with it!
Mother’s Day Recipes
Recipes – yum. Makes me hungry just thinking of all the delicious food we could make for Mother’s Day! I have a great list of recipes from various bloggers and friends and I know you will find these super useful!
- Ali from Champagne and Coffee Stains goes over 20 Easy Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas and let me tell you – your mouth will be watering once you finish reading this! Just look at the Strawberry Pound Cake!
- Jordan from Healthy Happy Mama suggested this Low-Carb Avocado Caprese Salad as an addition to brunch for Mother’s Day – and I’m in love! It is super easy and sounds super tasty, so it’s a win-win!
- In my Mother’s Day post, I recommend skipping cooking for dinner time and instead – ordering in from your wife’s favorite restaurant! Wait until you see the look on her face when you surprise her with this, trust me.
Miscellaneous Mother’s Day Things
There are a few more suggestions I got from friends and fellow bloggers – but theirs really don’t belong in a certain category (which is why I’m listing them here).
- Jen from Journals to Freedom Printables introduced this beautiful Mother’s Day Binder Printable just for Mother’s Day. It is gorgeous. What I love about it are all the sweet, thoughtful writing prompts, the music playlist, and the photo-a-day challenge included. It’s such a unique but very well thought-out gift to give your mom – she will just love it.
- Last but not least, Suchot from The Curious Frugal wrote a little something from Mom’s who may be experiencing their First Mother’s Day after Miscarriage – and it is too important and helpful to skip. Please read this with a grateful, kind heart when you get the chance. It’s good.
Well friends, I hope you have enjoyed my Mother’s Day Resources Roundup! It sure has been fun getting to know some of the women who gave me these ideas. I can’t wait to hear about how you are planning to use these ideas to make Mother’s Day that much more special this year.
