Unique Gifts for Mom: Mother’s Day 2017

Mother’s Day is a time to show the moms in your life how much you love and appreciate them. Oftentimes, however, we struggle to find something perfect for the ones who have done so much for us over the years. There are always the classic gifts like jewelry, flowers, and a special family brunch, but sometimes we want our gift for Mother’s Day to be a little more unique and different than the typical gifts. Daily Mom has you covered if you’re looking for something a little different this Mother’s Day with our favorite unique gifts for the person who has sacrificed so much.  


WoodSnap

Perfectly Meshing Memories with Nature

Top Mother’s Day Picks

Photographs tell the stories of our lives; often as mothers, our stories are deeply intertwined with our children’s smiling faces. These photos provide us with a way to capture our memories forever in one moment of time. WoodSnap helps to take the mundane out of printing and preserving images. Your photos will be printed on wood, giving them a totally unique, natural look.

No mother will deny that the smile on her child’s face makes her heart sing. But as mothers, we can admit that sometimes the way we display photographs is well, rather boring. Enter WoodSnap – the innovative new way to print your photos on wood. The process is so easy: select the size of the print, upload the photo, and check out. Sizes vary from smaller square photos perfect for Instagram to large panoramic or canvases perfect for your professional photographs. They even come in fun shapes such as hexagons and hearts.

They don’t use any white ink in their printing, so anything light in your picture will have the wood grain showing through. Photos are printed directly on premium baltic birch wood, so colors are vibrant and crisp without losing any quality. The natural wood grain also gives each photo printed its own fingerprint – no two photos will look the same.

About WoodSnap

WoodSnap is a Southern California based company that uses a patent pending technology to embed ink directly into wood. The company was started in 2011 by Ricky Anderson and Mike Lastrina. The printing process is what really makes their company stand out. It took over nine months to process, which is somewhat similar to the tattoo process. One of their biggest concerns was the effect of WoodSnap on deforestation. The birch wood they use comes from juvenile trees and does not have the same effect as cutting down 100 year old trees or entire forests. Instead, the effect is more like that of cutting down a Christmas Tree. Yet, they still wanted to do more and created “Roots for Trees”, where for every Woodsnap purchased a Redwood tree is planted. Thus making this the perfect trifecta of Mother’s Day gifts – beautiful, unique, and environmentally friendly.


Vauva

Perfect for the minimalist mama

Top Mother’s Day Picks

Vauva created the ultimate minimalist diaper bag for those mamas who want to be hands free while looking polished in their “less is more” style backpack.

If you’re looking for a chic, durable, convenient, and hands free diaper bag, look no further — the Vauva Diaper Bag Backpack is the bag of your dreams. This gorgeous faux leather backpack combines fashion with function to create everything you want in a diaper bag, but with a simple, minimalist, and smart design.

It’s no secret that most people stuff their diaper bags with everything but the kitchen sink, just in case. After all, if it all fits in the bag, why not!? But overstuffing a bag means you’re spending time searching for things you need, and finding things you forgot you even had in there. With the Vauva diaper bag, this problem is eliminated. With just enough (and not too many) pockets to stay organized, you won’t be searching for that lost pacifier in what seems to be a black hole.

You don’t have to worry about a heavy diaper bag slipping off your shoulder as your hands are full with your squirmy little one; this backpack is lightweight and stays in place with adjustable straps. They call it the un-diaper bag, and with good reason. The 100% faux leather can be easily wiped clean, and the elegant, sturdy hardware gives this bag all the chic vibes that look good on moms and dads. This stylish bag is nothing like the bulky, complicated, or cutesy diaper bags that you’re used to seeing.

About Vauva

Vauva was born in 2016 when Kelsie Rios, mother of a one year old, realized there were two problems with standard diaper bags — 1. They are big, bulky, and things get easily lost in all that space. And 2. There wasn’t a bag that matched her style: classy and minimalist. She and her husband Jeremy, felt if they had a simpler diaper bag design, their lives would be much simpler as well. They made it their mission to create a minimalist bag perfect for moms and dads that was simple, sexy, and frustration free. Kelsie came up with exactly what she wanted in this minimalist diaper bag, and Jeremy made it happen. The Vauva backpack gives you just what you need and nothing more.


Keurig Coffee Maker

Perfect for tired moms who need just one more cup of coffee

Top Mother’s Day Picks

If there is anything true about motherhood it’s that we need coffee. Always. From sleepless nights to work to constantly being on the go, on school runs and after school activities, moms need the pick me up that a warm (or cold!) cup of coffee can bring. A new Keurig is the perfect gift this Mother’s Day for the tired mom who needs a quick cup of coffee brewed fast.

Keurig is a single cup coffee maker whose innovative technology has changed the way we brew coffee. The single pods make it easy to brew one cup at a time rather than waiting to brew a whole pot. After all, what mom has time to wait for an entire pot of coffee to brew? You also have the ability to choose your own flavor of coffee without making several pots so everyone in the family has the flavor they want. So moms, choose your vanilla, hazelnut, or raspberry mocha triple truffle while the dads can have boring medium roast. It’s your world with the Keurig!

The Keurig 4-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker gives you the option of setting your coffee maker the night before, too. This way you can wake up to a fresh cup of coffee brewing before your kids even climb into your bed.

Max Warehouse is your all-in-one shop for everything Keurig. From the coffee maker itself to all the accessories – reusable pods, coffees, pod holders, cups, and carafes – Max Warehouse has it all at a discount. Nothing could be easier than ordering the Keurig and all the extras from Max Warehouse, and we know that’s what dads really want this Mother’s Day.

Kelly Moore Bag

For the mom-tographer looking for the perfect all-in-one bag

Top Mother’s Day Picks

Shortly after moms are born into the world of motherhood their hobbies and interests often fall to the wayside. Our lives become consumed with diaper bag contents and little bodies clinging to ours. And although motherhood is rewarding and wonderful, many moms long for time to pursue their interests outside of being mom. If you have a mother in your life who is also a photographer, she will need a camera bag that fits her busy, on-the-go lifestyle but will also keep her precious cargo safe.

The Kelly Moore Austin bag offers mom-tographers a versatile bag that will hold their camera and lenses, as well as all the snack cups and diapers, in a trendy and convenient bag. The drawstring and snap closure allows for easy access to everything inside. It is made from their new Cambrio material which is water and abrasion resistant, as well as vegan friendly, making it a great option for moms who will inevitably have someone spill something on it at some point.

The pockets in the Austin bag seem endless, too. There are three pockets on the front – two zipper pockets and one envelope pocket – and the back has another zipper pocket. The interior has SEVEN different pockets to help you configure your bag to your needs. There are two adjustable dividers, two clear envelope pockets, two other large spaces on the removable basket to store your iPad or other like-sized items, and one inner zipper pocket.

Kelly Moore also gives you a variety of ways to wear your Austin bag depending on what you’re doing that day. You can carry it as a tote, a shoulder bag, or a cross-body messenger bag depending on which strap you use. The inner, removable basket is large enough to hold a camera body with a lens attached and a ten inch lens, giving you enough space to hold all your gear.

The Austin bag comes in cream with brown accents (bone), or black (shadow), which is great for professional photographers. If you are looking for something a little more trendy, they also offer a stone and bone combination which gives you the black and cream together in one fantastic bag.

About Kelly Moore

Kelly Moore Bags was started by photographer Kelly Moore Clark when she couldn’t seem to find a bag that fit her busy lifestyle of a photographer and as a mother. In 2010 she started mailing orders for her new bag out of her garage. In two months she was sold out because of the popularity among other photographers for something versatile and trendy enough to fit all aspects of their lives. Since then she has grown her line to include 19 different bags in countless colors and style aspects. They have their first brick-front store as of the fall of 2013 in Downtown Rusten, Louisiana where she spends her days designing, photographing, and raising her three children.

Nap Anywhere

Perfect for the traveling Mom who is always ready to feel rested – even on the go!

Top Mother’s Day Picks

Whether you are gearing up for a road trip, braving the vanpool commute, or simply taking care of your body in an upright position in order to get the much-needed rest all moms need, Nap Anywhere just may be the number one Mother’s Day gift you’ve been dreaming about (who needs a head-banging mom anyway?)!

Sure, you could grab those over-priced u-shaped neck travel pillows that line every airport from here to Antartica, but why, when you can travel in both style and comfort with the most innovative head-support pillow available on the market. The NapAnywhere® travel pillow makes traveling easy and comfortable with its portable size and shape. It’s perfect to avoid the after-travel slump and arrive at your destinations refreshed and ready to go – especially if you are on your way to the in-laws.

What you may not know about one of the common problems with many travel neck pillows on the market is that they are just too big and awkward to make traveling with them convenient – especially if you have your toddlers in tow with the double stroller.

In addition, the unfortunate truth is that many of the u-shaped pillows are incapable of providing the necessary support needed to provide high levels of comfort. No comfort equals less rest and a tired and drained momma whose job isn’t even finished yet.

The NapAnywhere® travel pillow is small, convenient, and ultra-supportive. In fact, the NapAnywhere® travel pillow is small enough to fit easily into a diaper bag. When worn, the NapAnywhere allows the muscles in the neck to relax as the head is fully supported. Mom, wherever you may be, whether in bed, on a road trip, commuting, or simply in the lazy boy – kick up your feet, and rest without any kinks, head jerks, or stiffness!

About Nap Anywhere

The NapAnywhere is not a neck pillow. It is a minimalist, head support device. It effectively provides head support while in a seated position and is convenient to carry anywhere. Part engineering and part origami, the NapAnywhere’s design is one of a kind, winner of a 2014 Product Innovation Award at the International Travel Goods Show.


Mugsby

Perfect for moms who love humor and inspiration

Top Mother’s Day Picks

Moms run on caffeine, plain and simple. So what better way to treat Mom this Mother’s Day than with a brand new mug (or two or three or four) from Mugsby? Mugsby blew us away with the sheer array of hundreds and hundreds of mugs in their shop – and – they’ll even custom make one for you, if you have an idea!

These mugs come in a few different varieties: 11 oz or 15 oz, and white or black handles, so you can personally configure your mug just for your unique taste. Like small coffees throughout the day? Go for the 11 oz size. Have a rough night with a fussy baby keeping you awake? Opt for the 15 oz and keep that bad boy filled up all day long. The “No matter what life throws at you…” mug (shown here in 11 oz size, with black handle) is one of our favorites for Mother’s Day, to give mom a bit of humor to start her day.

If you’re a mom who loves a good curse word and consider yourself a feminist, the Feminist AF mug (shown here in 11 oz size) is absolutely, without a doubt, the mug you need in your life. You’ll start your day with a smile and some girl power, and get ready to kick that patriarchy right in the butt.

Mugsby’s “You Will Never Have This Day Again,” mug is hands down one of our favorite inspirational mugs, ever. It’s a beautiful reminder of being in the moment, being present, because this stage of life, whether we’re corralling little ones or watching our older kids turn into adults before our eyes, will be over in a flash.

Each Mugsby mug is sublimated, which is a special process they use when making the mugs, and this means they’re microwaveable and top-rack dishwasher safe. Perfect for those days when you need to reheat your coffee eleventy billion times (a.k.a. every day).

About Mugsby

Mugsby is the brainchild of an uber-creative husband/wife team, who quit their day jobs in corporate America to pursue their dreams of making the world a happier place via personalized mugs. Each Mugsby mug is handmade with love, and meant to bring a little bit of extra joy to your day. They’ve amassed quite the following on Etsy in just a little over two years in business, with a nearly 5-star, solid rating.


Dripo Cold Brew

Perfect for the on-the-go mom who loves a flavorful cold brew coffee

Top Mother’s Day Picks

The entire tumbler is secured together, ensuring that no tiny hands can knock over and spill your precious coffee!
