Mother's Day Gifts for Every Taste

By

Business women are mothers too. So if your Mom is a business woman, why not give her a Mother's Day gift that not only shows her how special she is to you but makes her busy life easier? This selection of Mother's Day gifts chosen with the busy business woman in mind will make it easy to find just the right gift for your Mom.

1. Mother's Day Gift Basket

As business women, we send out gift baskets regularly to special clients, but we don't normally bother to get one for ourselves - making receiving a gift basket a special treat! The Mother's Day gift basket linked here, the Gourmet Feast Basket, is one of my favourites because it combines a mouth-watering collection of smoked salmon, caviar and cheese with almonds, chocolate truffles and gourmet popcorn. All a person's favourite treats in one place! For more examples of gift baskets that would make great Mother's Day gifts, see my Top 10 Gift Baskets.

2. Anuschka Checkbook Wallet/Clutch

We business women like to look professional, and most of us manage to pull it off - until opening our briefcase or handbag reveals our old battered wallet. A new wallet is not only a Mother's Day gift Mom will appreciate, but one that will remind her of you often. My choice is a hand painted Anuschka Checkbook Wallet/Clutch; they’re beautiful and functional with three full length pockets, one zip compartment, 13 card slots, two ID windows, and a pen loop. The style pictured is Premium Rose Antique.

3. Spa Mother's Day Gift

There’s nothing like a luxurious spa experience for recharging the batteries and letting your Mom get back to business with renewed enthusiasm. If you can afford it, a spa treatment is a fabulous Mother’s Day gift. If you can't, why not opt for the "at-home" treatment? Your mom will still get the chance to relax with a Mother's Day gift such as this Lavender Relaxation Spa Basket. This collection of anti-stress bath products, infused with sweet lavender, includes body lotion, body scrub and shower gel, and will pamper her from head to toe. When finished bathing she can enjoy the included gourmet fruit tea, chocolate bar, and tea cookies.

4. Virtual Assistant Services

Many business people are just plain too busy, because they are reluctant to delegate or just don't have the time to explore or arrange the options for getting the help they need. A Virtual Assistant can make your Mom's life easier by doing many of the administrative tasks she doesn't really need to be doing. As a gift, you could purchase x number of hours of a VA's services. Canadian Virtual Assistants Connection is one place you can find a directory of available VAs.

5. Apple iPhone 4S

Along the same lines, your business woman Mom may still be using an older-style cell phone, having little time to shop for a new one. Why not impress her with a more stylish, more functional phone update? Something like this Apple iPhone 4s could literally have her jumping for joy. The iPhone 4s is Apple’s latest generation of iPhone with improved signal reception, a better camera, faster processor, and the ability to accept voice commands.

6. Mother's Day Bouquet

They’re traditional, they’re easy to purchase, and there are very few women (business women included) who don’t love to receive them. Something showy that she can use to dress up her office would be an excellent choice for a Mother’s Day gift. This perfect bouquet comes with a stunning display of pink roses and Peruvian lilies in a clear glass vase (included).

7. Bulletin Board

A Bulletin Board for the Office

Many offices (even some home offices!) are bleak, sterile places. If there's room in her office space, get your business woman Mom a nice corkboard - and turn it into a gift she'll really appreciate by dressing it up with a display you've created, using family photos, pictures you've drawn, or even a selection of pictures/photos of your Mom's favourite things. I've selected a 22 x 36 inch 3M Post-it Self Stick Bulletin Board as an example; I love being able to stick things up without tacks or tape.

8. A Personalized Mug

Pricegrabber.com

Many of us use the same old mug for years on end and it gets to be a pretty battered, chipped excuse for a drinking vessel. A new mug (or tea cup) can be a Mother's Day gift your Mom will really like, and use every day. This inexpensive coffee mug is personalized by your uploaded photo in an exclusive wraparound repeating pattern – perfect for pictures of Mom’s favorite things.

10. Your Time

Is there something that your Mom has been after you to do or just something you might do together that you haven't done in a while? Whether it's cleaning out the garage together or taking a long walk, giving your Mom an afternoon of your time is the kind of Mother's Day gift she'll especially treasure.
