Bonjour! I’m Anthony, French chef at Pastreez, the best macaron delivery in the US.
Did you know that in France, Mother’s Day date varies? Usually, “La fête des mères” is the last Sunday in May, unless it is the same day as a Christian Holiday which days varies, which happens from time to time, then it’s the first Sunday of June.
No matter where you live and when you celebrate Mother’s Day, it is the perfect time to show your mom how much you appreciate her.
Whether you’re shopping for your own mom or for the mother of your children, finding the perfect gift can be a daunting task.
In this blog post, I’ll provide you with 8 gift ideas that are sure to make your mom feel special on her special day.
Personalized Photo Blanket
A personalized photo blanket is a great way to show your mom that you care.
You can choose a favorite family photo or a picture of the two of you together, or a beautiful French landscape and have it printed onto a cozy and soft blanket.
Every time your mom wraps herself up in the blanket, she’ll think of you and the special memories you share!

Jewelry is always a great gift idea for Mother’s Day, but you can make it even more special by customizing it.
You can have your mom’s initials or name engraved on a necklace or bracelet, or choose a piece of jewelry that features her birthstone.
This personalized touch will make the gift even more meaningful and special.
Mother’s day macarons from Pastreez
If your mom has a sweet tooth, surprise her with limited heart-shaped macarons from Pastreez.
Our French delicacies are not only beautiful to look at, but they also taste amazing.
In 2023, we released limited mother’s day macarons that are the cutest ever!
Three heart-shaped macarons: Purple Cherry, California Orange and green Lime.
We also made it easy to gift it, with a soft touch gift box including 20 macarons, a 48 set, or even a 4-tier tower with 36 macarons.
To make sure your order is delivered fresh by mother’s day, make sure you order no later than May 10th 1pm PST, and select “mother’s day reservation” at checkout: we’ll ship fresh accordingly.
Lastly, make it personal by adding a free gift note to your order.
Each macaron is made with high-quality ingredients and is gluten-free. Your mom will love these delicious and thoughtful treats.
Spa Gift Basket
After a long year, your mom deserves some relaxation and pampering. Put together a spa gift basket with her favorite bath products, candles, and maybe a plush bathrobe.
You can even include a gift certificate for a massage or facial at her favorite spa. Your mom will appreciate the opportunity to unwind and take some time for herself.
I found these on Etsy. I really think it’s one of the best platforms to buy handcrafted products.
Does you mom always speak of her great French teacher and how fun it was to study French at school? Or maybe she’s planning a trip to France? Or she’s read how wonderful studying a foreign language is for your brain…
Whatever her motivation, check-out French Today’s downloadable French audiobooks. From fun and easy bilingual novels to French phrasebook to gradual French learning method, you’ll find the audiobook to make her French speaking dream come true!
Customized Recipe Book
If your mom loves to cook, create a customized recipe book just for her.
Include her favorite family recipes as well as some new ones that you think she’ll love.
You can also include photos of the dishes or illustrations to make the book even more special. Your mom will love having all of her favorite recipes in one place.
Needless to say, it’s one of the most personal gift on this list. It requires some time to gather all the information in the book, but it’s worth it!
Here is a great example of a blank recipe wooden cover book.
Flowers are a classic Mother’s Day gift, but why not make it even more special by gifting your mom a flower subscription?
With a subscription, your mom will receive fresh flowers delivered to her doorstep every month. It’s a thoughtful and beautiful gift that will brighten up her home all year long.
A good thing with flowers, it beautifies the house. Since they stay in good shape for only a week or two, a subscription makes sense!
Here is one that I found, with few plans to choose from, such as “classic”, “Seasonal” or “Luxe” -> https://urbanstems.com/subscriptions
Virtual Cooking Class
If you’re looking for a unique and interactive gift, consider gifting your mom a virtual cooking class.
There are a variety of online classes available, ranging from beginner to advanced, that cover a variety of cuisines.
You can even take the class together and make it a fun bonding experience. Your mom will love learning new cooking skills and trying out new recipes.
With CozyMeal, you can select the city, type of cooking class (online or on-site), group size, and much more.
I found it very easy to navigate. Here -> https://www.cozymeal.com/online-cooking-classes/mothers-day
