Whoever the mother figure is in your life, Mother's Day is a great time to honor her and all she has done for you. Let’s face it, mothers do it all.
A mother is a: chauffeur, (or mUber), chef, nurse, therapist, house manager, maid and laundry service, finder of lost objects, personal shopper, gardener, project saver, I-forgot-my-lunch/project/cleats rescuer, veterinarian, monster and bug chaser, and the list goes on and on.
It’s hard to find the right Mother’s Day gift for someone who has done so much. Often, we count on the traditional gifts of flowers and perfume, which are lovely, but consider something new this year.
Thoughtful Gifts Require Empathy and Creativity
The best gifts are those that take into consideration the recipient’s lifestyle, activities, hobbies, and more. By putting yourself into her shoes, you take a moment to empathize with the types of gifts that she will really appreciate in her daily life. There is nothing better than getting a gift that makes you realize that the gift giver gave some real thought to your lifestyle.
Here, we offer suggestions for thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts, and they are all suited to different activities and lifestyles.

If your mom works at a computer at home or office–either for work or leisure–this Mother’s Day gift is a big winner. It is important to work in a position that is ergonomically correct.
