Chances are that with everything Mom has on her plate, it’s tough for her to ever have time to treat herself.
Here’s your chance! Give her something unique that complements her fantastic sense of style. A new handbag or tote, a colorful new top or sundress. Maybe a light cardigan or kimono, a stylish hat or pair of sandals for the warmer weather. See? Shopping for clothes doesn’t have to be challenging! Browse our Clothing & Accessories section for even more inspiration.

Give Her Something that Sparkles

If having to guess sizes and styles is too much for you to worry about, then try something a little shinier and more sophisticated! Necklaces, Earrings, Bracelets, and rings are a great way to put a little sparkle into her wardrobe and give her something both beautiful and thoughtful.

Spruce Up Her Space

 It’s amazing what adding a new accent to a room can do to change it up. Help Mom give an existing space a mini makeover with something one-of-a-kind. Replace that old artwork with a vintage or inspirational sign, swap out pictures with a decorative new frame or dazzle her with a glitter globe or table lamp. She’ll have a unique conversation piece when company comes to visit, courtesy of you!

Get Nostalgic

Take her for a trip down memory lane with something nostalgic that ignites those feelings of the good ole days. Give her a vinyl record of her favorite band or an old-fashioned phone or popcorn maker, then complete it with a few thin sticks or her favorite candy for an extra sweet touch. It’s a blast-from-the-past gift that’s both unexpected and super fun.

Rock It Out

Cracker Barrel Rocking Chairs

 A perfect mix of function and style, a rocking chair makes a great gift that everyone in the family will enjoy. Plus, did you know using a rocking chair helps improve balance and blood circulation? It’s a win, win!

We love our rocking chairs! They’re handcrafted in the US and are available in a variety of styles and sizes, whether you’re using it for indoor or outdoor, and OK…we’re going to say it…these things rock! You’ll be a rock star, too, for surprising her with a rocker from Cracker Barrel this Mother’s Day.

Relax with a Good Book

Pocket Devotional Mother's Day

Writing is a great way to help reduce stress and promote good mental health, so a journal or inspiring book may be just what Mom needs. Choose from all kinds of journals to fit her creative tastes including daily devotionals, for that extra dose of inspiration and encouragement.

Create a Mini Spa

Passion Fruit Hand Lotion

The aroma of a cool ocean breeze or calming lavender makes a perfect gift to help her unwind after a long, stressful day. Bring the spa to her this Mother’s Day with a bit of DIY ingenuity. Create a relaxing gift basket of personal care items like a scented bath bomb, goat’s milk lotion, and a pillar candle that brings the fragrance of flowers into her room for the ultimate experience.

Get Cozy

Throw Blanket Mother's Day Gift Ideas

If Mom’s perfect day is catching up on all the latest Netflix shows with no interruptions, then a nice cuddly throw blanket with her favorite snack and beverage may sound like the ideal way to spend her day. Order a Cracker Barrel meal to-go with a yummy dessert, and you’ve done good. Your next job – keep the kids away!

Spring is here, and that means more time outside! If Mom loves gardening and landscaping, then her perfect gift just might be something that adds a little charm to the outdoors. Maybe it’s the beautiful sound of some wind chimes, a sprightly garden gnome, or a rustic welcome sign.

Have Some Family Fun Time

If Mom is all about creating memories, then a fun game day (or night) with the family may be ideal. Hold the first-ever “Jumbo Checkers Tournament of Champions” or test her trivia knowledge on all things pop culture. Maybe it’s a nostalgic toy or game or make some room on the kitchen table and piece together a 1,000-piece panoramic puzzle together. Divide and conquer and remember, this is all about having fun!

Get Creative

Mix and match! Create a themed basket with a little bit of everything she likes. For example, if she loves cooking, create a basket with a cast iron griddle, some pancake mix, and real maple syrup. Head on over to the store and get creative. The possibilities are endless!
