I am really excited about today's post! With Mother's day just a week away I wanted to reach out and offer some great gift ideas for the women we love! I didn't want to make just another gift guide. I also don't want to give my mom just another gift. I wanted to present ideas for gifts that matter and that have an eternal value as well if you will.
I am also aware that time is short. So if you are like me and you haven't picked something up yet, most of these gifts are available with two-day shipping so you aren't empty-handed on Sunday.
Here are some of my top suggestions!
THIS BOOK. Mike and I LOVE this book. We love it so much we gave out 15+ copies of it to friends and family for Christmas this past year.
It a starter guide to an ancient personality typing system called the Enneagram. What makes it so different is that it really allows room for self-growth. Rather than just typing you and leaving you the Enneagram shows you why you do what you do and how you can grow in self-awareness. It teaches you how to put off that false man the Bible talks about.
It's an awesome gift for moms because it will help mom understand herself and also her children and those around her so much more. If you have a relationship focused mom The Road Back To You is the perfect gift for her!
This one is my all-time favorite Christian fiction books. Redeeming love tells the story of Michael Hosea. One day, just like the man of old he's named after, God calls him to marry a woman out of a brothel. The story follows the Biblical story of Hosea but it also brings that story to life so much more. Redeeming Love is truly heart-warming and it will remind you and mom of how wildly loved you are by the Father.
That is a pretty awesome gift right!?
Maybe your mom is not a huge reader or maybe she commutes quite a bit. Go with a subscription to Audible!
They're having a special now where you can get two free books during your free trial! So you can get mom a subscription and the two books mentioned above on audiobook for free. As a bonus if you decide to cancel the subscription before the trial ends you still get to keep the two books!
A New Bible
Bible Journaling is still a major trend but I totally get that it is not for everyone. Whether your mom is super artsy fartsy or not this Bible is already filled with beautifully illustrated pages that she can choose to color or not. It also leaves room for actual note taking with blank margins as well.
This Bible is stunning. I LOVE the illustrations. Seriously just go look at the contents. You may want to get one for your mom and yourself.
A Gift Basket
I found these super cute gift baskets and they are only $30! They come with a scripture journal, a candle, a soap, a pen and a sweet mug all in a cute tin basket.
I love this set because the mug quotes Proverbs 31 when it says, "Her children rise up and call her blessed." That is one of my favorite verses for mother's day.
These are my top suggestions for mom! I hope something grabs your eye and makes you think of your mom!
