Do you ever have a hard time buying gifts? Ya’ll, I struggle sometimes! In some instances, I feel like I’m copping out if I give a gift card or cash except when buying for teenagers, who are always needing money! Gift cards can be amazing to send in the mail or give when the person you are buying for has — well, everything. And of course they are perfect when people are struggling and need a break financially. But when I’m buying gifts for mom, I feel like it should be personal and say what’s on my heart.
I try to spend time thinking about what would be a blessing her. I try to be purposeful in giving even when a gift card would most definitely be easier. You know the kind where you swing through Fred’s for a $1 card and throw a gift card in it. Done that. No thought, no care, no consideration — just convenience.
If you struggle with the same things, I’m here to help! This Mother’s Day, don’t let that be you! Here are some amazing ideas of gift for mom, his mom, or a friend or sister mom!
11 Unique Gifts for Mom for Under $20
Gifts for Coffee & Tea-Loving Moms
If the mom you are buying for is a coffee or tea lover, she’ll love one of these unique coffee mugs!
For the mom of littles, this Funny Quotes Coffee Mug: Wiping Noses for Jesus it Legit is absolutely perfect! I’m so thankful that wiping noses for Jesus is legit because otherwise? I’ve been wasting a lot of time time. I know that’s not true because even Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
Or the “Keep the tiny humans alive” mug, which I personally have and drink coffee from almost every single day!
For a more serious gift to the mom who loves tea or coffee or for a mom of older children, check out this beautiful Mom Coaster Mug. My favorite part of this mug, other than the coaster/lid feature, is the verse from Proverbs “Her children arise and call her blessed.” (Proverbs 31:28)
For T-shirt-Wearing Mamas
If you are buying for the mom who loves t-shirts, these are great options!
For the Jewelry-loving Mom
Josiah’s Blessings offers several nice pieces of jewelry perfect for mom! All of their merchandise is fair trade, and they are a small business in a small town! How neat to support a business like that!

The first one is the Wrapped in Love bracelet. Doesn’t that sound like a perfect gift for a mom, who is always wrapping others in her love?
And the second is the Proverbs 31 Bead Bracelet, in Turquoise, which says “Strength and honor are her clothing and she shall rejoice in time to come.” Proverbs 31:25 Even though she may be in the trenches now, she shall rejoice!
