You can read all about why I chose Book of the Month Club in this blog post.

2. Put Me in the Story
Put Me In The Story - Bestselling Personalized Books for Kids

The only thing mom might like more than a book for herself to enjoy is a book starring her child. Put Me in the Story features bestselling books like Star Wars books and Disney’s Cinderella – personalized to include your child in the story. I bought My Name is Not Isabella and Disney’s Doc McStuffins: A Knight in Sticky Armor, and they are treasured by both my kids and myself.

5. A Becky Wade Book

Becky Wade writes Christian romance novels. I’ve read most of Becky’s books and have given many of them to my mom and my mother-in-law to read as well. They are clean and have great characters. Becky also manages to infuse her stories with a deeper level that isn’t often found in the romance genre. Her books are not fluffy, but they are uplifting, happy stories that will make any mom sigh with content as she turns the last page. Click on the covers to go to Amazon.


6. A Jen Turano Book

Jen Turano also writes Christian fiction, but her novels are more fluffy, lighter, and have a humorous twist to them that many books in this genre don’t have. They are lighthearted stories that are great for those times when you want to lose yourself in a silly book that will make you laugh. I’ve read most of her books and have loved them all. I’ve also passed them along to the moms in my life because they are uplifting and will make you smile. Click on the covers to go to Amazon.


7. Hungry Family Slow Cooker Cookbook by Christina Dymock

Yum! This cookbook is full of delicious recipes. I bought this not too long ago and then turned around and bought another copy for my mom. Slow cookers are a life-saver for a busy mom and you can never have too many good slow cooker recipe books.

8. Slow Cooker

Do you need a slow cooker to go with the cookbook? They aren’t expensive and they last forever. I have two of them and love them to pieces. I use them several times a week.

9. The Nest

The Nest is quickly becoming a bestseller. It’s about a dysfunctional family, their nest egg, and their desperate attempts to access it. I got my copy through my Book of the Month Club subscription (see #1 for a code for 50% off), but if you don’t want to subscribe to anything, you can easily pick up the book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo.

10. A Coloring Book

Coloring books are all the rage right now. I own several of them myself. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting down to spend a few minutes coloring in a beautiful picture. Moms love these books! Click on the covers to go to Amazon.


11. Kindle Oasis

If you really want to impress Mom this year, give her the newest Kindle on the market. The Kindle Oasis. It comes with a longer batter life, high-resolution screen, and a charging cover. It’s the ultimate Mother’s Day gift. Mom can read until her heart’s content.

    I wish my mum was into books because there are so many great ideas here! Although the UK has already celebrated Mother’s Day, it’s a good list for things like birthdays and Christmas. I may have to jot down some of these for my Nan’s birthday!
