It’s not always easy to decide on a Mother’s Day gift for that special person in your life.
And while flowers and personalized photo mugs are always a sweet gift to give, sometimes you need a sparkly gem to make her feel special and loved. From personalized necklaces to flower-shaped jewelry, we’ve got plenty of options to help you find the perfect Mother’s Day gift and they’re all under $500.
There are so many options to choose from in this category, including a birthstone necklace or a charm necklace that includes something personalized and sentimental (even a private joke between two people). Both options are perfect everyday pieces that are minimalist but still beautiful nonetheless.
A personalized necklace can also be a great gift, such as an engraved bar pendant, a disc necklace with her zodiac sign or initial pendants. You can customize this necklace with the letters of your mom’s initials or the first letter of her children’s names. Another cute idea is a “Mama” necklace.
Each of these options are elegant and timeless pieces for her collection.
There’s no better way to show her you look and appreciate her as a mother than to give her a heart.
Heart-shaped earrings are one option but other ideas to look into are heart-shaped necklaces, bracelets and rings, all of which are super trendy right now and budget-friendly. Another option is a diamond heart key and lock pendant.
From big, diamond-encrusted styles to smaller, more dainty styles, there are so many ways to go about the heart-shaped jewelry trend without breaking the bank. The best part is that the shape is timeless and will never go out of style.
An infinity “love” necklace
The infinity symbol has long been used to symbolize never-ending love and is uber popular among jewelry. It was created by John Wallis, an English mathematician who lived and worked in the 17th century, to represent a line that never ends. In terms of the infinity sign in jewelry, it symbolizes eternity, empowerment, and everlasting love. Hence the term eternity ring, also known as an infinity ring, was created, which is a woman’s ring comprising a band of precious metal set with a continuous line of identically cut gemstones (usually diamonds) to symbolize never-ending love.
Many people enjoy adding an infinity necklace or an infinity bracelet to their daily ensemble.
Instead of a bouquet of roses (or even in addition to an actual bouquet), you can opt for flower-shaped jewelry, which is a favorite among most women. Pick a pair of flower stud earrings that are in her favorite color or the color of her birthstone. You can also get flower-shaped earring jacket that she can pair with whatever earring she wants or already has.
Everyone will already be gifting real flowers to the mother or mothers in their lives, so why not stand out and get her different kinds of flowers.
If you want to be really sentimental with your gift, write inside a Mother’s Day card a popular quote about flowers (John Lennon once said, “Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow”) or try to make her laugh by writing a pun about flowers, like “My love for you blossoms every day” or “I can’t wait to see our love grow and grow and grow.”
