Mother’s Day is fast approaching and if you have not already decided what to get your mother, now is the time to get something! If your mother is anything like mine, there is a careful balance of buying her something that is both practical yet thoughtful and appealing.

Below are just a few gift ideas that your mother may find quirky and interesting while being able to use it for years to come.

MoMA Perpetual Calendar

Perpetual Calendar

Give this to your mom as a tribute to all the moms out there who spent much of their lives as a parent keeping track of appointments, special dates, and everything else required to raise a child.

Though it may look like an ordinary clock, this Perpetual Calendar designed by MoMa is actually a way to keep the passage of days, months, and years. It can both hang on the wall or sit by itself as an art statement.

Chalkboard Wall Clock

Even the best of moms may forget things every now and then. This Chalkboard Wall Clock is the perfect way to tell time but also to write little messages. Be creative and write or draw a Mother’s Day card onto the chalkboard before giving this gift to your mom.
