Mother's Day is quickly approaching, and if your mom is anything like mine, it can be almost impossible to think of a great gift idea. My mom is notorious for saying that she "doesn't need anything," which just adds another layer onto an already difficult task.

Luckily, there are plenty of unique gift ideas that are sure to brighten up any Mother's Day celebration. From sentimental trinkets to practical gift ideas, there's something out there for every kind of mom.

For some gifting inspiration, we chatted with Etsy trend expert, Dayna Isom Johnson to get the lowdown on some of this year's most popular Mother's Day gift ideas.

Sentimental Mother's Day gift ideas

While a bouquet of fresh flowers is a classic Mother’s Day gift, there's no denying their short lifespan. This year, many brands are offering creative twists on florals that moms can enjoy year round instead.

"On Etsy, we’ve seen a 175 per cent increase in searches for birth flower jewelry and a 56% increase in searches for pressed or preserved flower items as many look to extend the life of their blooms," Isom Johnson tells Yahoo Canada.

Whether you opt for your mom's birth flower or a sweet nod to a loved one, this gift idea is sure to be a winner.

Mother's Day gift ideas for new moms

Many new moms and moms-to-be will be celebrating their first Mother's Day in 2022, so why not make it a day to remember?

"I love gifts that remind new moms to take some time for themselves, like soothing, all-natural bath and body goodies or a luxe silk eye mask," Isom Johnson says.

"Initial jewelry or a custom keepsake that they’ll cherish forever are another beautiful way to commemorate their first Mother’s Day."

Personalized Mother's Day gift ideas

Nothing makes moms feel more seen and loved than something made just for them, which makes personalized gifts an ideal choice for Mother's Day.

"Some of my favourite opinions include adding your mom’s name or initials (or even a note in your own handwriting) to a piece of clothing or jewelry, commissioning a custom piece of artwork, or creating a family heirloom by engraving her favourite recipe onto a cutting board or ceramic dish," shares Isom Johnson.
