Mothers Day Gift Ideas
Everyone uses Amazon, and most people have mothers, so it seemed like a good idea to toss together a brief but sweet-ass mothers day gift guide. Even if you don’t use Amazon, maybe this can inspire you to get something other than a card or $20 Tim Horton’s gift card. Here are some Amazon mothers day Gift ideas. They’re in no particular order or anything, just a curated list for fun. Hope it helps. Enjoy.
Adult Colouring Books
If your mom doesn’t use curse words in real life out loud, I bet she’d love colouring them in. Get some of that gosh darn roger kingkading fricken rage out.
An Instant Pot
Think of instant pots like a pressure cooker + slow cooker + rice cooker + sauté + steamer + warmer, plus technology, in one neat little package. Every person I know that has one of these loves it, using it more than their oven. You can make all kinds of things in them; soup, broth, meat, stew, cakes, eggs, sauté, rice, multigrain, porridge. Plus it has other settings; pressure cook, keep warm, steam and slow cook.
Amazon Echo Spot
If you haven’t used one of these, it’s a voice-activated virtual assistant. If your mom isn’t ‘a techy’, no problem, she’s probably already used to talking to electronic devices like that’ll help haha. This one will actually do what she asks though! Stream music and podcasts from Spotify, Radioplayer, and Deezer. Depending which other Amazon devices exist on the network, it can also do things like turn on/off the lights, control the TV, play YouTube videos, play the news, set alarms, show the baby monitor, display the front door cameras, even lock your doors – it’s incredible what technology can do these days. It can also be used to make phone calls if mom is someone that still does those.
A cheaper option is the Amazon Echo Dot. You’d still get all of the voice functionality and like such as, just without a screen.
TACOsaurus Rex Taco Holder
This here is a Tacosaurus Rex and it perfectly holds 2 tacos on its back. If there’s one thing I know about mothers, it’s that they love dinosaurs and tacos, and especially dinosaurs that can expertly hold more than one taco on it’s back. You can take that to the bank. You can take it to work, school, even to an ice rink if you want to.
Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager
Stress sucks and causes so much tension in your neck and back, something like this can be a lifesaver. If you’re particularly a pain in moms neck, get her something nice to offset that. You must maintain the balance.
Adult Onesie Unicorn
Mom would look great in one of these, no?
Keter Rattan Cool Bar
Moms LOVE rattan things (rattan was so hot in 70s porn, for some reason) so why not give her a rattan table that is also a cooler? This thing can hold 30L and will keep drinks cold for hours. Maybe she uses it for her stash instead of ice? Who knows, I bet moms do all sorts of things we don’t know about.
Pocket Wine Aerator
For the mom who drinks wine all the time anywhere she goes (h4rdc0re), she’ll
want need this pocket aerator. What is it? Well…. it’s an aerator, it rapidly adds oxygen to the wine, enhancing the flavour, bouquet, and finish. It allegedly makes a cheap bottle of wine taste like a not cheap bottle of wine. I’m no wine snob so I’ve never been able to tell the difference anyway (my knowledge goes as far as that wine is either ‘white’ or ‘red’).
Travel Size Wine Decanter
Another decent buy for any wine lover, this travel-sized aerator quickly introduces oxygen as you pour from the bottle. If someone saw you using this at a restaurant they would think you’re sophisticated as shit. Treat yo’self. Or mom. Do whatever you want, I’m not your mother.
Essential Oils Gift Set
Truth be told, they aren’t technically essential. I’ve checked with the Calgary Police numerous times and they’ve always maintained this. Anyway, they smell really nice and can even have rejuvenating effects on the mind and body. Some people use them to sleep, some use it to cover the smell after firing one out. Whatever the case, these are cheap and highly rated. Check it.
The Comfy (A juiced up ‘Snuggy’ Blanket)
If mom likes wearing a hoody that is gigantic and warm and also shields her crotch from evil spirits, The Comfy is a great choice. One size fits all. Wash on cold, low temp tumble dry.
Shiba Inu Soft Plush
Much cute, so hug.
Outdoor Wine Bamboo SpikeTable
These little wine tables are meant for picnics, or anywhere you can stab it into the ground where you’ll be drinking wine from glasses. If you bring cheese or other food, it’ll keep it off the ground so bugs can bug off.
Probably not so useful in the winter.
Bonsai Tree Seed Starter Kit
This kit includes seeds for 4x different bonsai trees and everything needed to grow the shit out of them. This company also sells kits for edible flowers, fruit, exotic vegetables, herbal teas, succulents, and other cool plants. Bonsai trees are definitely the coolest of all.
USB Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp
Rock salt lamps are legit. We bought a nice one from the Telus Spark gift shop and I tasted it to make sure it was salt. It was. It didn’t taste very good. I’ve never claimed to be bright.
Why would mom want one of these? Well, they’re nice. You plug it in and it gives off a nice warm glow, and it’s salt. Salt from Pakistan even. Yep, they’re pretty nice.
The option of a normal sized rock salt lamp exists too. x2 too.
My Cinema LED Lightbox
Do you have a mom who likes to Instagram? I bet that’s not embarrassing in the slightest. If so, maybe she’d appreciate this lightbox. It comes with 100 letters and numbers, and you can either plug it in or use batteries. If you have a cool mom maybe she’d like to write something vulgar on it and put it in the window. Would actually be really good for a small business window, or in social media posts.
It’s so expensive but omg is that not the coolest bowl holding thing of all time? If your mom doesn’t like this then you should trade her in for a new one.
Sex Toys For Mom
Every mothers day gift idea guide needs sex toys, right? Right? Life is short.
If you haven’t heard of a womanizer is and what it can do for a lady, go read the comments on this Facebook thread.
And I mean come on this one looks like a penguin!
Happy mothers day!
Mothers Day Conclusion
Hope you have a good mothers day with your mothers. If you don’t have a great relationship with her, maybe call her? If she’s not alive anymore, my condolences. Don’t forget to reach out to your support network of friends and family if needed. Cheers~
