Mother’s Day Gift Guide: What to Get Mom When She Has Everything

Moms know the work of being a parent never stops, no matter how old their daughters are. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to shower the moms in your life with gifts that show your love and appreciation!

And we don’t mean the typical scented candle or pair of cozy socks. If your mom is always on the go, up your gift-giving game this year with something she can use for her next adventure. We’re talking unique Mother’s Day gift ideas like cool camping gear, inspirational travel books, or a thoughtful donation to a cause she cares about. 

Check out our ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide below to wow the mom you love most this spring!

1. Special Mom Spa Day 

Trust us when we say: moms never get tired of being pampered! 

This doesn’t have to mean anything crazy expensive, either. Plenty of spa facilities offer new customer deals, mani/pedi bundles, and more. 

You can also take the spa to her by pulling together her favorite bath salts, exfoliating face masks, and luxury self-care items into a cute basket. Then flip on her favorite TV show (may we suggest Schitt’s Creek or Friends?) and voilà! Say hello to a relaxing spa day from home.

If you’re looking to splurge on Mom this year (which we’re sure she appreciates), you can opt for a Day Spa experience. Most have packages that will allow your mom (and you!) to explore the spa all day for an affordable flat rate. 

2. Updated Luggage Set

This is the type of thing your mom might have a hard time buying for herself. If your mom is like ours, she’s likely sporting the same luggage set she’s had since college. And no shade on Mom’s trusty travel gear, but maybe it’s time for an upgrade. 

The Meridian is exactly what she needs to get excited for her next trip. The anti-crush exterior protects her items, while the 3 organizational compartments keep everything organized and tidy. 

It’s not heavy, either — weighing in at just 6.5 pounds, it’s the lightest carry-on luggage you’ll find out there.

3. Cool Books About Travel 

If your mom is a voracious reader who loves travel, we know just what to get her this Mother’s Day. 

As the star of one of the most viral TED Talks on the internet, author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie also has a captivating read titled Americanah. This novel makes for an excellent beach read or on a flight. 

And if she loves it as much as we do, she’ll fly through this one quick — which is great, because Adichie has a whole collection!

4. The Best All-in-One Bag for Moms


Moms can make even the toughest tasks look easy. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t lend her a hand this Mother’s Day! For moms that “have it all,” give her a stylish and durable travel bag that can also hold it all. 

The Camden is the perfect bag for moms on-the-go. For days when she wants to mix it up, she can carry it as a backpack, crossbody, or tote. 

The large main interior gives her plenty of room to store snacks, kids’ toys, and everything she needs to get from soccer practice to her Pilates class with style and ease.

5. Cool Camping Gadgets for Moms

Okay, this one’s not so much a gadget as it is an entire outdoor experience that you mom will love!  Intrepid Camp Gear is launching a brand new hard shell rooftop tent that’s perfect for outdoorsy moms: the Geo 2.5.

Their roof top tent pops open in under a minute, saving your mom tons of setup and takedown time at camp. And with the high-density foam mattress, she can look forward to a super comfy night’s sleep so she can wake up refreshed and ready for anything!

6. A Thoughtful Donation

Sometimes it’s not the gift itself that matters, but the thought behind it. If your mom cares about a special cause, consider donating in her name this Mother’s Day.

Not sure where to start? We recommend our partner non-profit, the Blue Verve Project! 

Blue Verve Project has helped keep 3.2 million plastic water bottles out of our waterways. And what happens to all this plastic? We use it to make our durable, sustainable women’s bags at Sherpani!

Blue Verve Project also holds community clean-ups in Boulder, Colorado, which could be a great way to spend time with your mom while giving back.
