Hi, lovelies! Are you wondering what to get Mom for Mother’s Day this year? If she’s been helping you with your wedding prep, she definitely deserves something extra this year. :) But she’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom, right? And cool moms don’t just get regular presents: they get the most unique Mother’s Day gifts 2021 has to offer!
Since you are out there, livin’ your best life, we’ve done all the hard work finding the most creative Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2021. These Mother’s Day presents will show your appreciation for all your mom has done for you, how much she means to you, and make her feel special. And isn’t that the point of giving unique Mother’s Day gifts anyway?! We think so.
Here’s the thing: most of these gifts are so popular, you’ll want to act fast to get them in time. But even if you wait just a few days, they’ll probably still get there in time. We recommend ordering something you see as quickly as you can so it arrives ahead of or on the day of Mother’s Day. No one wants to see a shipping delay or find out the gift won’t be here on time, so act quickly!
TIP: Check shipping times! Order quickly! Note: Some gifts may require priority shipping, so be sure to check out individual shipping times and dates for each shop.
Okay, let’s get to it! These gifts aren’t going to wrap themselves!

Plus, the leather label on the front? Yep, it’s personalized with her name in your choice of font — FREE! Make sure you get priority shipping and order by 4/30, just FYI! By Minted.

Take it up a notch, though, by picking out a special arrangement with a mix of flowers and succulents, or send strictly succulents and potted plants. We also love the vases available here from Teleflora. Honestly, she’ll use these vases for years to come as part of her home decor. I especially love this first one with a Farmhouse vibe.
