Sharing is caring!

Let your mom know how much you care about her with one of these inspirational gifts for mom. If you’re looking for unique gifts for your mom, a faith-based, loving gift to help her pause and practice self-care may be the perfect gift!

These inspirational gift ideas make creative Mother’s Day gifts or beautiful gifts for a birthday for the Christian mom or spiritual woman looking to reflect and grow her faith. 

What gifts are good for mothers

Whether you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gifts, birthday gift for your mom, or just want to show your mom love, inspirational gifts are always a favorite gift.

What to get the mom who has everything and wants nothing

Useful and practical gifts for mom are always a good idea, but if you’re looking for a more personal touch, these inspirational gift ideas make the best gifts.

Personalized Gifts for Mom

Getting an engraved Bible with her name is a lovely gift that she’ll treasure forever. A large family Bible with your family’s important dates written in the front is a thoughtful gift.

Jewelry, like personalized birthstone necklaces, rings, and bracelets, either with the birthstones of the kids and/or grandkids or engraved names is also an awesome gift.

These engraved eternity necklaces are so pretty.

Mother Daughter Faith Journal

Starting a Mother/Daughter Faith Journal together is a special gift that will help you get to know your mom’s heart better.

I love this Sealed With Love Mother Daughter Faith Journal. It’s such a unique way to grow your faith while spending time with your mom.

What should I get my mom for appreciation?

An encouragement gift is an awesome way to show appreciation for your mother.

Things like motivational books, body lotion that she wouldn’t buy for herself, a beautiful gift that’s sentimental, or any useful or practical gift that she would love would be the best way to show appreciation.

Rosary Beads/Prayer Bracelet

If your mom is Catholic, this Rosary wrap bracelet from Etsy makes a beautiful piece of jewelry to wear daily or just for Sunday Mass.

If your mom isn’t Catholic, this turquoise Your Journey Prayer Bracelet is a gorgeous, unique gift.

Prayer a Day Journal

Celebrate your mom and remind her how special she is with this A Prayer a Day Journal and Necklace set.

Prayers to God Box

If your mom regularly writes her prayers, metal “Prayers to God” boxes from Dollar Tree are a really sweet gift.

She can write each prayer on a small piece of paper, place it in the box, and reread it the next day as she continues to pray for people and things close to her.

You could also make a DIY prayer jar out of a pretty mason jar or jewelry box.

These Melissa and Doug wooden craft boxes would be cute for a young child to make for a Mother’s Day present.


Give your mom the Hope Your Heart Needs devotional. It’s a great journal to read and process each day as she has her cup of morning coffee or evening reflection time.

Self-Care Journal

Self-care journals are perfect to help any overwhelmed mom process her emotions and take a moment for herself.

Inspirational Apparel

These inspirational shirts from Candace Cameron are so cute! Get your mom one of these tops or a cute printed graphic tee:

This Wonder Woman Erin Condren planner also provides a sweet message and a daily reminder of how much you appreciate the wonder woman in your life.

Audio bible verses

Get your mom an Audible subscription to listen to her favorite inspirational books.

You can also get her the audiobook version of an inspirational Bible study or even make a list of inspirational podcasts or apps so that she can be inspired every day.

Seasonal Write the Word Journals

These beautiful Write the Word Journals from Cultivate What Matters are the perfect inspirational gift for your mom.

Get her the full set or choose a journal to help her cultivate faith, hope, joy, and more.

For an extra dose of inspiration, wrap the gift in a beautiful tote bag or include wall art or a card with an inspiring quote or sentimental message.

Finding the perfect inspirational gift for your mom can be a challenge, but with these beautiful gifts, you’ll be on the right track!
