“Managing Time” Gift Ideas Your Mom Will Love
These gift ideas are perfect for moms that need a little help staying on schedule without confronting them about your time management concerns. It’s a win-win. =)
A watch to help her keep on schedule. Pick a watch that is not only attractive but also is easy to see. If she has vision issues, a digital large face watch may work better. If she is tech savvy, you could also get her a smart watch.
A smartphone to help her manage her emails and schedule. Pick a phone that is easy to use. If she has health issues, I find that an iPhone works best. If you want more ideas on other gifts for elderly parents, check out my post: The Best Gift Ideas For Elderly Parents
A feminine paper planner with pockets to help her keep those tasks in order. If digital product gifts are not your mom’s favorite, try getting her a planner. Getting a weekly planner at a glance works nicely and adding a little feminine touch with flowers or her favorite color will show her how much you care. As an additional surprise, write in all the birthday’s for the immediate family in the planner and other yearly traditions she does with your family.
“Clothing Organizing” Gift Ideas Your Mom Will Love
A scarf organizer with a new scarf on it. Or, you can even make one or two like the ones I did. How to Make a Custom Wood Scarf Holder You can also add custom necklaces as well.
A set of grip hangers with a new blouse on each hanger. There are many things in a closet like baskets, hangers, and drawer organizers that you can give your mom. Adding items that she needs will add some flare to your gift. I would stay away from undergarments though. =)
“Car Organizing” Gift Ideas Your Mom Will Love
An emergency kit or roadside assistance kit for her car to use in a pinch. Better yet, you can purchase her an AAA card for discounts as well as roadside assistance.
A first aid kit to store in her car to use when she needs it. If she travels around by herself often, a first aid kit is very handy. Find one that is small enough to store in the glove compartment or console.
“Gardening” Organizing Gift Ideas Your Mom Will Love
A pot with various herbs in it so she can use them for cooking. Indoor or outdoor gardening is fun and relaxing. She can show off her green thumb quickly.
A set of gardening tools and bag or tote to carry them in. I find it is very useful to have a place to store all the gardening items in a single location. So, something like this would work.

“Saving Money” Organizing Gift Ideas Your Mom Will Love
A coupon organizer with dividers to help her organize her money-saving coupons. Pick one that has lots of sections to help her organize the coupons better. She can also use one for going out if she doesn’t cook as much. She can have a section for breakfast, one for lunch, and one for dinner. She could also have a section for takeout coupons.
A menu organizer with pockets to hold all her take out menus. On the heels of the coupons, you can also give her a place to organize her takeout menus like this one below.
A financial organizer with pockets to manage all the bills that come in. This organizer is great to keep her bills organized for each month. I particularly like the bands because they hold the papers in the folder.
“Taking Care of Herself” Gift Ideas Your Mom Will Love
And, after she has organized her life (with your help), she can take care of herself with one or two of these special activities. Pick one or two of these tasks and purchase items for gifts that will help her make the activity more fun. It could be buying her a new yoga mat if she likes yoga. A new journal to help her write her memoirs. Bath cushions or bath salts for her favorite time soaking in the tub. Whichever product you choose to give, wrap it in a beautiful package, so she understands what you want her to do with the product.
