Mother's Day at Church: 12 Gift Ideas

In women's ministry, one of the challenges for leaders is to acknowledge the Mothers in the congregation on Mother's Day. There are many different ways to celebrate Mother's Day in the church, here are some ideas:

1. Chocolate. There are all kind of options with this one, depending on your budget. You could present the mothers in your church with a chocolate rose or truffle(s) or other gourmet chocolaty treats.


2. A stylish tote bag. This is another practical gift- great for trips to the library, or the beach, or going to soccer games.

3. A beautiful flower. This can be a rose, a carnation, a peony, a lily etc. Different colors and flowers convey different meanings so you may want to ask your florist which flowers are best for the occasion.

4. Wall art such as a framed Bible verse or picture. If you have some images that you like, you could get them printed professionally and frame them yourself.

5. Girls Day Out. Celebrate Mother's day as a group. Make plans to do manicures, pedicures, watch a movie, eat desserts or anything else the women would enjoy doing as a group.

6. A beautiful picture frame. She can use it to display the latest photograph of her children or Johnny's latest artwork or even a treasured card from a dear friend.

7. A quality (but pretty) pen. This is a handy gift, as she can use it to write shopping lists, make out checks, mark dates on the calendar etc. There are many styles available. How about choosing one with an inspiring message.

8. A beautiful notebook, journal or magnetic notepad and coordinating pen.

9. Mug or cup. How about filling it with a few gourmet tea bags, hot cocoa mix, chocolates or other candies. Wrap it with cellophane and a pretty ribbon and you are all set.

10. A gift certificate for a free drink and dessert for two, at a local coffee shop. Make a note suggesting that she invite a friend to go out with her.

11. A gift certificate or discount to the church bookstore or another bookstore in the area.

12. Perfumed hand or body lotion- if it’s a small bottle, you could put it in a tulle bag with a few chocolates and tie it with a pretty ribbon. 

13. A chef’s apron. This is a practical gift that will be appreciated by the busy mothers who spend a lot of time in their kitchen doing any kind of messy food preparation (frying chicken, baking cupcakes etc).

If you have any more Mother's Day ideas for church, please share, we want to hear from you.
