Dig It In The Sun UVA UVB IndicatorsGive mom the freedom to enjoy the sun without worrying about when to reapply her sunscreen.

We LOVE practical gifts especially when they are truly helpful. Dig It In The Sun® UVA/UVB Indicators are small round stickers that you apply to your skin to help you know when your sunscreen protection has worn off.

When exposed to UV, the Dig It In The Sun™ Dot changes from clear to deep purple. And just like skin, when sunscreen is applied over the Dot, it turns clear and only changes colour when the effectiveness of sunscreen wears off.

Each adhesive Dot remains effective throughout a full day of activity and removes easily without causing irritation.

Perfect for the whole family, and moms will really love when her kids give her this gift and also wear the dots themselves.

See how it works…


rose gold bluetooth waterproof speakerLet mom relax in the shower while she listens to music.

The FRESHeTECH Splash Tunes Pro Shower Speaker is waterproof, hands-free, portable, and enabled with Bluetooth 4.0.

Moms will love how it is so easy to use. The buttons allow unified volume for both the phone and speaker, plus one-touch Bluetooth sync. She can skip to something new, return to something old, and play and pause songs right from the speaker.

We love this pretty rose gold color!

locketAny mother would love to receive one of these floating charm necklaces with a special message inscribed.

This mother’s day gift set includes a Message plate: “The love between a mother & a daughter is forever” as well as a Locket, Chain, Message Plate, Charms, Birthstone Crystals & Gift box.

You can also choose from many other locket designs and charms to personalize one of the best gifts for mom.

cute capri leggingsSpring is here and summer is on the way. Get mom a bright and cheery pair of capri leggings to make her smile.

We love this cute design from our friends at Huetrition.

These leggings are a blend of 82% polyester and 18% spandex with a four-way stretch so the fabric stretches and recovers on the cross and lengthwise grains. They’re made with a smooth, comfortable microfiber yarn, precision-cut and hand-sewn after printing.

Green and Blacks ChocolateWomen love quality chocolate. One of our personal favorite chocolate brands is Green & Black’s. In fact, these are the chocolate bars we used to wrap with our Mother’s Day Printable Candy Bar wrappers.

If you look closely in the photos for those printables, you’ll notice that we took the outer paper wrapping off the chocolate bars and had the pretty Green & Black’s gold foil showing under our Mother’s Day printable wrappers.

These premium organic chocolate bars, imported from the UK, make an excellent gift for moms. Available in ten unique flavours, there’s something for every palette in white, milk and dark; and in a variety of delicious flavours which makes it perfect for developing unique recipes.

You can find Green & Black’s at natural health and organic food shops, independent specialty food stores and select major retailers such as Whole Foods, Sobey’s, Metro, Loblaws and Shoppers Drug Mart.



Epson ET3700 PrinterOne of the best gifts for mom is definitely a quality all-in-one printer that prints stunning photos straight from her phone.

If you really want to treat mom on Mother’s Day, give her an Epson ET-3700 EcoTank All-in-One Printer.

She will love the cartridge-free printing that comes with 2 years of ink in the box. This printer has 150-sheet paper capacity and easy mobile printing.

The Epson iPrint™ App allows you to install convenient shortcuts on an iOS device that allow you to print and scan on-demand, without having to navigate software and menus. Need a quick print? Take a picture and ask Siri to print it in seconds. Not sure how much ink you have left? Ask Siri to show you.

You can bet any mom would love this printer!

gogoBags Reusable BagsMoms will love gogoBags!

Massage Therapy BallsMoms need massages more than anybody. These Massage Therapy Balls will let her give herself a massage whenever and wherever she needs one.

Unlike foam rollers, which treat your body as a single muscle, body rolling with Massage Therapy Balls allow you to pinpoint specific muscles and to roll around joints, giving you a more effective and complete massage.

Massage Therapy Balls are an effective self-exercise aid that can strengthen muscles, open joints, increase spinal flexibility and stimulate blood flow.

This complete set includes a variety of sizes and degrees of firmness to penetrate specific areas of the body.

apron - gift idea for momsA new apron is always a great gift for mom.

We love the simple, clean design of this apron from Huetrition. The embroidered design says “Your Plate Your Canvas” which is a great reminder to fill your diet with healthy, colorful food.

The adjustable neck loop and long ties, two front pockets, and intricate embroidery in front all come together in an eye-catching and comfy accessory.

It’s made of a blend of 70% polyester and 30% cotton.

AirfryerWe love our Philips Airfryer! We reviewed one a few years ago and Janice made these delicious recipes… Airfryer French Toast Sticks and Airfryer Apple Pie Filo Pastries.

But now the Next Generation Philips Airfryer, is 20% smaller but has the same internal capacity, so it’s a perfect fit for your kitchen counter top.

We love how the Philips Airfryer fries, bakes, roasts and grills with little to no oil so it’s a perfect solution for fast, tasty and healthy meals and snacks.

NAIPO shoulder and neck massagerEvery mom could use a shoulder massage at the end of the day.

With the Naipo Shoulder & Neck Massager, mom will be able to relax with a deep Shiatsu massage and gentle heat to soothe her sore muscles.

It features 8 deep-kneading Shiatsu massage nodes to soothe and relieve tired muscle tightness.

Massages are always one of the best gifts for mom… especially when it means unlimited massages!

Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless EarbudsMoms on the go can listen to music or audio books with Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless Earbuds.

These waterproof earbuds feature Voice Assistant technology that directly connects to Siri and Google Assistant with a simple voice command, providing instant access to playlists, weather reports, directions, and more.

The Fringe HoursIf you have a woman on your list that is always go go go, never saying no to take some time to herself, this book is for her.

This is another title written by one of our long time blogging friends, Jessica Turner.

In The Fringe Hours, Jessica shares her secrets for taking time to pamper yourself in whatever way fills you up. As moms we are all constantly filling others needs and often never taking some much needed time to ourselves.

Give a woman permission to take time for herself… Give her The Fringe Hours!

LulaRoe dressesIf your mom loves comfy clothes, treat her to some LuLaRoe. They have leggings, skirts, tops, and dresses in the softest fabrics.

LuLaRoe leggings are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn in my life! I love them.

But part of the fun of wearing LuLaRoe is picking out a fabric design… so a great way to give a LuLaRoe gift is by giving a LuLaRoe “gift certificate”.

While there aren’t official LuLaRoe Gift Cards, our good friend Laura, who was formerly an editor here at 5 Minutes for Mom, is a LuLaRoe consultant and she will arrange for you to prepay for your gift purchase with a digital “gift certificate” so it acts like a gift card for LuLaRoe.

Join Laura’s Facebook group and ask her for a LuLaRoe Gift Card.



Dooney - Florentine Mini SatchelIf you really want to treat mom with something special, get her a luxury purse like this Dooney & Bourke Florentine Mini Satchel. The supple Florentine leather has the look and feel of fine saddlery and, like saddle leather, it develops a rich patina over time.

This chic satchel is one of Dooney & Bourke’s original styles.

Browse their site to see this satchel and more fabulous purses.


Nectar Mattress - Bed in a BoxIf you REALLY want to treat mom to a gift she truly deserves, give her an incredibly comfortable mattress.
