Where to Start? Shopping for Mother’s Day Gifts

Your mom has gone through great lengths to care for you and provide for you. There may have been days when she sacrificed her own desires for your needs, and you may not have even known it. She might have even passed her timeless family wisdom onto you. When it comes to honoring your mom, and all the hard work she went through for you, for Mother’s Day, you have plenty of great reasons to want to find the right gift. Sometimes your mom will give good hints of what she wants, other times you are left to guess. Consider gifts that may last longer than a bouquet of flowers, and enrich her spiritual life as she uses them.

  • Journals
  • Devotionals
  • Bibles
  • Coloring Books

Regardless of where your mother is in her spiritual journey, she may want to take the time during her busy routine to write about her day, or plan for her future. Journals provide the space you need to release what’s on your mind through writing. Sometimes it can be helpful to use a journal to write down heartfelt prayers, or expound upon thoughts you have from a Bible study.  Mardel has a variety of journal options to choose from, and many that might suit your mother’s style.

Whether your mom is busy, or has plenty of time to invest in reading a daily devotional, there are plenty of options for her to explore. Devotionals provide thought-provoking segments to read each daily, wisdom from God’s word, and application to put the wisdom into practice. There several different topics, and types of devotionals, so you can be sure to find something that suits that way your mom likes to interact with God’s Word.

Beyond just a devotional book that will empower her faith journey, you can find a Bible she can use each day. Even when she doesn’t turn to a devotional book to guide her way through the Bible, she can open up God’s Word and explore the truth by reading one book of the Bible at a time. We have many different Bibles for different types of readers, and different translation options. Choose the Bible that will best empower your mother’s spiritual journey, the same way she nourished your spiritual journey right from the start.

Finally, there are coloring books. You read that right, coloring books aren’t just for kids anymore. You can find coloring books filled with intricate designs that require dedication to details to complete. Encourage your mom to take a break every once in a while, put on some relaxing music, and unwind as she completes a coloring pages. Many of the coloring books even have Scripture verses alongside the pictures, so you can meditate on God’s Word as you complete each design.

No matter what gift you find for your mother this year, she will be proud to see that you remembered her, and want to honor her on this special day. You have spent your life learning things about her, so of course you should have a pretty good idea of what she might want, even if that just includes spending a little more time with her.


I began my career with Mardel in 2006, while earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma. While I love to write fiction and convey stories through novels, I also have a passion for studying philosophy, theology, and apologetics. I enjoy the faith-building resources available at Mardel, and look forward to sharing what new topics and information I’m learning.
