What to give to Mom this Mother’s Day

Plus French toast, of course

Mother’s Day 2023 is rolling around on May 14th, and you’re wondering what you can possibly give to Mom this year. With all that moms do, one day of the year to celebrate them is never enough. We do acknowledge that relationships and experiences with moms vary immensely, with life taking each of us diverse places throughout our personal stories. If your mom is near or far, geographically or emotionally, we see you.

If your mom is like mine† was, all she ever wanted if she had her way was to have all her kids together in one place. I truly believe that her utmost desire was for each of us to be happy, and no gift that I did or didn’t give on Mother’s Day would do justice to her love for us. I started to see Mother’s Day as a chance simply to genuinely thank her, to recognize how she’d raised my sisters and me to love each other well. Along with attempting to bake up sugar-free cinnamon rolls or a clean version of French toast, her favorites. See our list of gift ideas for Mother’s Day, so you can share a minute expression of how much you appreciate the mother in your life.
