2021 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for All Budgets & Personalities

Mother’s Day is less than a week away, which is more than enough time to find the perfect gift for your own mom, the mother of your child, a partner who is a mom, or even a close friend or relative. 

Depending on your relationship, and the personality of the person you are buying for, you have several options to make this Mother’s Day one she will remember each time she sees the beautiful piece of jewelry you gifted her.

Now, it is time to make a few decisions about how you get there from here. We can help.

Our Beverly Hills based staff at Gems Are Forever are Graduate Gemologists from the Gemological Institute of America who has assisted our clients in making the perfect jewelry gift selections for over 40 years.  

Here are a few things to consider when choosing the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

Decide on a Budget and Stick to It

Mother’s Day jewelry gifts can be purchased in an incredible range, from hundreds and thousands of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars and beyond. You should determine the amount you would like to spend before your search begins, so you are not overwhelmed by the selection.

Your budget will likely be dictated by who the gift is for, which brings us to the second step in the Mother’s Day gift-buying process…

Who is the Woman You are Buying For?

Giving jewelry as a gift for Mother’s Day requires knowing the person you are buying for, so the gift is personal and meaningful.

Consider the woman’s style, and whether she is simple or flashy, and what type of jewelry she currently wears.

This will also help you determine a budget.

Pins and brooches, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces typically fit just about any style and are perfect ways to say Happy Mother’s Day and I love you at once.

How Much Time Do You Have?

Not everyone can celebrate Mother’s Day in person, on the actual holiday. This is especially true for those who do not live in the same city or state as the person they are buying for.

If you have time, custom made pieces, including jewelry or watches with engraved messages, and other specialty items provide the personalized approach that says it was just as important to find the right gift as it is for her to receive it.

Make it Special, Without the Customization

If you are looking for a Mother’s Day gift today, or even the day of — on the way to brunch — there are several options our California jewelers recommend that say, I bought this gift weeks ago, just for you.

Colored stones and vintage jewelry can provide a personal touch, even if you did not spend a lot of time choosing the piece. Search for birthstones that match the mother or child, or examine antique pieces that are timelessly beautiful, just like her.
