Top 10 Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Personalized mothers day jewelry

Hi! I'm Alexis Jae. After years of watching my mom grow her jewelry business, I started my fine jewelry business. My mom has been my biggest mentor, supporter, and inspiration. So, it's fair to say, at Alexis Jae, we take Mother's Day very seriously. If you're looking for something your mom will appreciate more than a coffee mug, air fryer, or water bottle, you've come to the right place. We might be a little biased, but we don't think there's any better mother's day gift than jewelry. They came up with the saying, "diamonds are a girl's best friend for a reason!"

Based on my experience creating mother's day gifts and learning what resonates best with our customers, I rounded up the top 10 best mother's day gift ideas. Everything at Alexis Jae is customizable, so if you already have an idea or want to tweak one of the below - reach out! Read on for our mother's day gift guide.

Initial necklace for mom

Pave Initial Necklace

We had to start the list with our best-selling gift for moms - our initial diamond necklace. Women's Health magazine included it in their article "55 Thoughtful Gifts Your Mother-In-Law is Guaranteed to Love. It's great as a necklace for moms of 2, moms of 3, or moms of 4! We can add as many initials as you'd like. Moms love that it's a personalized gift that is still trendy. Plus, it's the best layering necklace. It's dainty enough to go with any stack, but the diamonds are high-quality, so its sparkle will stand out.

Gold necklace for Mother's Day

Personalized Pendant Necklace

After starting Alexis Jae, this was the first gift I gave my mother - a personalized necklace. I personalized it with a quote my mom always said, "I can, and I will just watch me." This necklace is great for adding a memorable saying, children's names, or meaningful dates. It is a thoughtful gift that is sure to make a statement to your loved one. 

Jewelry for grandma

Birthstone Bangle Bracelet

I've learned over the year through gifting to my grandmothers that the clasps get harder and harder as you get older. We've found our birthstone bangle bracelet is perfect for this reason. It is sleek and dainty - the gold is malleable, making it easy to take on and off. Customize it with your grandmother's birthstone or yours! If you'd rather get a chain necklace or bracelet - we can add an extra-large clasp. Just reach out to us before ordering!

Mother's day gifts for friends

Diamond String Bracelet

Skincare, diffusers, and gadgets are nice, but nothing says friendship like a string bracelet. Our string bracelet is our most popular gift for friends throughout the year. It's simple to customize the string color and the diamond shape. It's a real crowd pleaser - everyone loves it. It's an elevated string bracelet that goes with everything! 

Ring for mom with birthstones

Custom Ring

The most popular trends we see on mother's day is birthstones and initials. If you're going the birthstone route, rings are a great choice. The ring design should depend on the number of birthstones you'd like to include and whether you'd like a statement or minimalist ring. One of our customers wanted to have aquamarines and diamonds, so we came up with this design. We can make rings of any shape, size, and gemstone. Reach out if you'd like to discuss a custom ring! Don't forget - you can always engrave a special note inside a ring.

Mother's Day name bracelet

Name Bracelet

Name jewelry has always been a big trend for mother's day, and this year is no exception! If you're looking for name jewelry, be sure to check out our name bracelet. You can customize this name bracelet with any name or word. If you have multiple children, we can write "mama," or we can customize a design that fits numerous names. The diamond at the end gives it a more luxe feel. 

A similar alternative to a name bracelet is a name necklace. We have a few different name necklaces - 14k gold, 18k gold, and engraved with diamonds. Name necklaces are a great gift for the mom that has it all because she can layer it with her existing pieces.

Necklace with birthstones for mom

Emerald Station Necklace

One of our most popular pieces of jewelry year-round is station necklaces. You might be asking what a station necklace is? Station necklaces have gemstones around the chain at even intervals. They are also often referred to as by the yard necklaces. Moms love receiving station necklaces all year round. Our curated selection has station necklaces with emeralds, sapphires, and diamonds. At Alexis Jae, we can customize any piece of jewelry. We'd recommend customizing a station necklace with meaningful birthstones for mother's day.

Earrings for Mother's Day

Diamond Huggies

For the trendy mom with the second hole piercing, diamond huggies are your answer. Our diamond huggies are made with high-quality diamonds, so they sparkle. We have a petite size for the more subtle mom, a 10mm huggie for the classic mom, and a jumbo huggie for the mom that makes a splash. When your mom (or wife) opens up a pouch with diamond huggies, it will make their Mother's Day!

Diamond hoops are always a hit if she doesn't have a second hole (or if she does!). Diamond hoops are a closet staple that every girl should have. Diamond hoops can be worn on nights out or for special occasions like weddings. You can forget about your outfit when you're wearing diamond hoops because they'll steal the show. Diamond hoops never go out of style, so they're a great option!

Jewelry for mother in law

Gold Hoop Earrings

Mother-in-laws can be one of the trickiest people on your list to get a gift for, but we're here to help you find her a great gift. If you have a child, we love handwriting jewelry. Choose any piece of jewelry; maybe it's an enamel charm or a bracelet with a gold circle. Then, we can engrave a message in your child's handwriting on the piece. Have it say "I love you" or "Happy Mother's Day." Trust us: your mother-in-law will love it.

If you don't have a child or that's not your mother-in-law's style - follow the adage - when all else fails, go with gold hoops. Everyone loves gold hoops. Our most popular size is our 25mm chunky hoops. They're perfect for everyday wear. For hoops to wear out at night, we recommend our 40mm hoops. If you're looking for smaller hoops, 20mm is the perfect size.

First Mother's Day jewelry

Tennis Bracelet Sizes

A mom's first mother's day is a monumental moment, and it's essential to mark the occasion with a special gift. Every mother might have different parenting ideas, but there's one thing every mom agrees on - you can't go wrong with a tennis bracelet. A tennis bracelet is a timeless gift for new moms. If you've decided you want to get your wife a tennis bracelet, there are many options to choose from.

The most obvious one is the gemstone. Diamonds are the most popular, but there are tons of other more affordable options. Tennis bracelets come in every type of gemstone. You can gift the gemstone based on your newborn's birth month. For example, if your baby was born in May - an emerald tennis bracelet, July - a ruby tennis bracelet, September - a sapphire tennis bracelet. For the complete list - check out our birthstone guide. 

When you choose a gemstone, it is important to investigate the stone's quality. We recommend for diamonds only getting GH SI1 diamonds or better to make sure they sparkle. We can add your child's gemstone on the clasp if you want to personalize it!

Next, for tennis bracelets, you have to decide on the gemstone shape. Round is the most common, but we love other shapes! Emeralds, pears, ovals, and more are so fun. We especially love when customers do mixed-cut tennis bracelets.

There's still more to think about when choosing a tennis bracelet! The setting is an important choice—the most classic setting is 4 prongs. However, customers also love 3 prongs and bezel set. Bezel set means more gold around it - giving it a chunkier look.

Finally, there's size. Our standard gemstone bracelets have 1.9mm stones. We think this is a great size for everyday wear. When it comes to diamond tennis bracelets, 3 carats is the most common size. 1 and 2 carat are great for a daytime look. 3 carats is versatile. 5 carats are more prominent, so they can be worn during the day if that's your style but are typically worn out at night.

Unique mothers day jewelry

If you are looking for a memorable and unique mother's day gift to give your mother this Mother's Day, consider a personalized piece of jewelry. Birthstones, initials, sayings, or names can be used to make the jewelry truly special. Whether you are looking for a mother's day gift for your own mom, or you need to find the perfect gift for your mother-in-law, we have something special that will fit the bill. Our collection of personalized jewelry is sure to please, and we're here to help! Please reach out to us if you'd like to personalize any piece.
