Unique Gift Idea for Mom

A Magazine Subscription – Unique Gift Idea 

Need a unique gift idea for your Mom this Mother’s Day? Why not give your mother a magazine gift; a gift that she will enjoy all year long? Not only will you be her shining star on Mother’s Day, but throughout the year as she receives her Mother’s Day gift over and over.

Present your mother with a magazine subscription that relates to one of her special interests or hobbies. Every time she receives her new magazine gift, she will fondly think of you.

Now, to make this a really unique gift idea and even more special, select a small gift or gift card to accompany her new magazine subscription. Here are a few ideas:

  • A cooking magazine will go nicely with a new apron, a cooking gadget, a casserole dish, a basket of spices and herbs or some flavored cooking oils.
  • A gardening magazine will pair nicely with a new plant, gardening tools, gardening gloves or a flower basket. Another great idea is to give her some packets of flower seeds along with a new flower pot.
  • For a craft magazine, the possibilities are endless. It really depends on what type of crafts your Mother enjoys. Some things that come to mind are a new organizer for her crafting items or a gift card to her favorite craft store.
