Non-Traditional Mother’s Day Gifts from Etsy

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, but if you have a mom who’s not into traditional gifts, we know how hard it can be to shop. The regular flowers and jewelry just won’t do.

What will do, then? In situations like these, we turn to Etsy with all of their original gifts.

Long-Distance Family Map

Living away from home isn’t easy on anyone, but it can be especially hard on Mom. Show her you feel her pain while simultaneously reminding her that no matter how far away you are, you’ll always be close. This heart-warming map doesn’t come with a frame standard, but you can add all kinds of upgrades to your order including a frame, matting, or turning your map into a gallery wrap canvas.

Funny, Floral Mother’s Day Coffee Mug

Have a sarcastic mom with a good sense of humor? Does she like coffee?

If you answered ‘yes’ to both of the above, this coffee mug is likely right up her alley. Leaving sugar and spice at the curb, she’ll get a kick out of receiving it from one of her BEAUTIFUL children.

C’mon Baby Light My Fire Candle

Admittedly niche, this candle is a great gift for any fan of Jim Morrison, or just The Doors in general. We love it not only for its wit, but also because you can get super personalized with it. You can submit a unique message to put on the lid, and you can also pick up to two scents to add to the candle.

Homemade Fudge Sampler

Hold everything! Where’s the chocolate?

We’re so glad you asked. You can choose from over 40 flavors when your order this sampler from Farmhouse Fudge. With so many flavors, you’re bound to find more than one she’s in love with.

We can’t stress how much better this is than that waxy box of chocolates you were thinking of picking up at the drug store on your way over to her place.

All-Natural Bath Bombs

These all-natural bath bombs are…the bomb. They meet every green requirement you could hope for: vegan, non-GMO, all-natural coloring, and the list goes on. They’ll also help mom relax and unwind after a long day—the detoxifying salts will help relieve and aches and pains she may have, too.

An added bonus because you’re ordering on Etsy: you can have a personal note added if you’re shipping it directly to mom.

Family Tree Necklace

Maybe traditional jewelry won’t do, but this Family Tree Necklace is anything but traditional. It nods to the tree element by making all the charms leaves, but other than that it’s a genuinely unique piece. Each child is represented with a “leaf” gemstone representing their birth month, and you can choose to add gold leaves including each child’s or grandchild’s initial.

Personalized Picture Bangle

Sticking to the theme of non-traditional jewelry, this picture bangle is perfect for any mom—but especially grandmas. It’s nice enough to wear pretty much anywhere. The grocery store, the office, around the house. And it’s unique enough that no matter where she goes, someone is going to ask about it. As we know, there’s nothing grandmas love more than talking about their grandkids, whether they’re traditional or not.
