Usu­al­ly, it is eas­i­er for a loved one to pick up a good gift — some­thing that will not gath­er dust with­out work lat­er than, say, a cousin.

But what if every­thing that is pos­si­ble has already been giv­en, but there seem to be no new ideas? It’s embar­rass­ing to ask direct­ly, and mom will most like­ly ansr that she doesn’t need any­thing or ask for some­thing com­plete­ly “orig­i­nal” — a grand­son, for exam­ple.

Let’s show you how to solve this prob­lem. We has col­lect­ed 200+ ideas of what you can give your mom for an anniver­sary, and our expert shared pro­fes­sion­al advice.

hanging chair
Pho­to: Mar­tin Schutt,

Pho­to: Nathan Cow­ley,

Such clothes should be in any wardrobe. In a track­suit, you can vis­it a fit­ness club, it is con­ve­nient to go for walks, go shop­ping, go to the coun­try, trav­el.

But you need to under­stand whether your moth­er will be hap­py with a prac­ti­cal birth­day present. Or is it still bet­ter to give some­thing for the soul?

4. Orthopedic mattress


There are sus­pi­cions that the princess from the famous fairy tale did not sleep ll because of the pea, but because of the downy feath­er beds. In order for the body to rest dur­ing the night, the spine must get the cor­rect posi­tion. And this will help ortho­pe­dic mat­tress.

1. Tricycle

Such a vehi­cle is more sta­ble than a clas­sic two-wheel­er, while it looks styl­ish, and, as a rule, is equipped with one or even two capa­cious bas­kets.

Mom can not only ride in the park or city side­walks, enjoy­ing the views, but also go shop­ping in com­fort. The bas­ket will also fit a pet, if there is such a need.

3. Artificial pond

artificial pond
Pho­to: Jur­gen & Chris­tine Sohns/FLPA,

An unusu­al gift for a woman who lives out­side the city or spends a lot of time in the coun­try.

Of course, giv­ing a plas­tic bath dur­ing a ban­quet in a restau­rant is at least strange. But you can plan every­thing in advance: dig a hole, install a plas­tic pond, add light­ing, decor in the form of stones, green­ery and flors, and a pump for flow (if you have not just a pond, but an arti­fi­cial stream) — and present to your moth­er in a ready-made form.

4. Jelry


Age does not pre­vent a woman from being and feel­ing beau­ti­ful. A brooch or chain will help to empha­size this. You can choose a dec­o­ra­tion that match­es the style of mom. Pay atten­tion to what mate­ri­als and col­ors she prefers. Per­haps it will not be gold and sil­ver, but, for exam­ple, amber, agate or pearls.

If the birth­day girl is fond of astrol­o­gy, you can choose a stone that match­es her zodi­ac sign.

5. A set of containers for the kitchen

Set of containers for the kitchen

Have you noticed how all these con­tain­ers for cere­als, tea and sets, assem­bled in a sin­gle style, set the mood for the kitchen? If your moth­er stores food in bags or in assort­ed pack­ages, a set of beau­ti­ful con­tain­ers, along with a bread box, will be a good pur­chase.

Glass and met­al prod­ucts look the most spec­tac­u­lar, the lat­ter being the most reli­able option. But you can also con­sid­er plas­tic sets: among them there are wor­thy spec­i­mens that will look beau­ti­ful and are cheap­er than a num­ber of ana­logues.

Gifts for 70 years

Even years after retire­ment, many women are still active. More­over, there is final­ly enough free time that you can spend with plea­sure.

1. Biofireplace

What to give mom for 60 years
Pho­to: Alex Qian,

If you do not intend to make changes to the design of your mother’s home, but you want to add com­fort, you can take a clos­er look at the floor and desk­top biofire­places. They are usu­al­ly made of met­al or wood and glass, dec­o­rat­ed with stones, and run on eco-friend­ly ethanol-based bio­fu­els. Fire­wood and elec­tric­i­ty are not need­ed, there is no need to equip the hood. When burn­ing, harm­ful sub­stances are not formed, and there­fore such a fire­place is safe to use even in a small apart­ment.

2. Equipment for Nordic walking

Equipment for Nordic walking
Pho­to: Karl-Josef Hilden­brand,

Can you guess why Nordic walk­ing has become so pop­u­lar in Rus­sia? This sport does not require spe­cial skills and premis­es, it can be prac­ticed all year round, and equip­ment can be select­ed with­in any bud­get.

Sticks should be cho­sen from a strong and durable, but light­ight mate­r­i­al. The size of the equip­ment is select­ed accord­ing to the for­mu­la: mul­ti­ply the height of a per­son by 0.68. If you doubt whether mom will be com­fort­able, or do not know her height, buy tele­scop­ic sticks. But it’s bet­ter not to save here: there is a high risk that cheap tele­scop­ic poles will quick­ly break or fold in the process. You also need to check with the sell­er for which sea­son the equip­ment is suit­able.

If your mom hasn’t tried Nordic walk­ing yet, you can start by join­ing in per­son.

3. Bed

Heated massage cushion
Pho­to: @ketut-subiyanto,

A gift that sym­bol­izes care and wish­es for longevi­ty. To buy a com­fort­able bed, you should con­sult with experts. And choose your options. Keep in mind that a bed with legs requires fre­quent clean­ing, as dust and debris accu­mu­late below, and a bed with drars, for exam­ple, allows you to opti­mize space.

It would be nice to get an ortho­pe­dic mat­tress for the bed — choose the rigid­i­ty accord­ing to the ight of the moth­er: the greater the body ight, the hard­er the mat­tress should be.

4. Garden swing

Garden swing
Pho­to: Katha­ri­na Hild,

Gar­den swings will dec­o­rate any sub­ur­ban area, here you can take a nap on a hot after­noon, read a book or chat with a friend. And the swing is a place of attrac­tion for grand­chil­dren, so if your moth­er likes to mess around with chil­dren, she will be hap­py with such an acqui­si­tion.

When buy­ing, check all the mech­a­nisms so that they are with­out mar­riage, some­thing may have to be imme­di­ate­ly lubri­cat­ed with oil. All fab­ric com­po­nents also look at the qual­i­ty of the seams and the absence of defects.

5. Air ionizer / ozonizer


This device looks like a room humid­i­fi­er, but it works in a com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent way. The ion­iz­er sat­u­rates the air in the room with neg­a­tive ions, arti­fi­cial­ly cre­at­ing an effect, like in the moun­tains or at the sea: it becomes eas­i­er to breathe. It is also believed that ion­ized air has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on ll-being and health.

Some mod­els are equipped with an air purifi­ca­tion func­tion (essen­tial­ly a reg­u­lar HEPA fil­ter) and an ozona­tion func­tion. Con­sid­er the num­ber of modes, the capa­bil­i­ties of the device and pay atten­tion to the method of attach­ment.

Gifts for 75 years

Wicker furniture set

A pair of arm­chairs and a tea table made of rat­tan or wick­er is an indi­ca­tor of sta­tus. Not a sin­gle avid sum­mer res­i­dent or even just a lover of liv­ing out­side the city can resist such a present. Small mod­els can be installed even in res­i­den­tial con­di­tions, for exam­ple, on a bal­cony.

You can choose an expen­sive design kit made from nat­ur­al mate­ri­als or a more bud­get option — for exam­ple, arti­fi­cial rat­tan fur­ni­ture often looks just as good. Pil­lows are often includ­ed in the kit, you can buy fur­ni­ture with­out them and sew to order.

2. Electric blanket

Soft blanket

An ide­al gift for peo­ple who are always freez­ing or for the cold sea­son — a blan­ket that heats up itself. It is enough to plug it into the out­let for a few min­utes, say, while you undress from the street and feed the cat, and then you can wrap your­self in an already warm cozy blan­ket.


It is for­bid­den to sleep with a blan­ket plugged into the out­let — you should def­i­nite­ly warn your moth­er about this when you explain the instruc­tions to her.

3. Multicooker


In adult­hood, there is often no strength and desire to both­er in the kitchen. Often, there­fore, old­er peo­ple who live alone eat mod­est­ly. This can be cor­rect­ed with the help of an elec­tric assis­tant — a mul­ti­cook­er.

You only need to set up the equip­ment and put the nec­es­sary ingre­di­ents inside: she cooks lunch­es and din­ners her­self, warms up food on time, and the menu can be very diverse: from borscht to pas­tries.

4. Carpet

Pho­to:, @ron-lach

A beau­ti­ful soft car­pet made of nat­ur­al wool is a gift mom will appre­ci­ate. With the help of a car­pet, you can enno­ble any ren­o­va­tion at the click of your fin­gers, make your home more com­fort­able and force your moth­er to invite guests — to show off, of course.

It is impor­tant to under­stand that a car­pet with a long pile requires more fre­quent and thor­ough clean­ing. And wool (if talk about nat­ur­al car­pets) can cause an aller­gic reac­tion. Make sure that such a gift does not harm mom and does not cause her unnec­es­sary wor­ries.
As an alter­na­tive — a beau­ti­ful design­er mat for the kitchen.

5. Weekend at the hotel

massage certificate

Remem­ber, how long ago did you send your moth­er to rest or took with you on a trip? A cou­ple of days in a com­fort­able hotel away from the bus­tle of the city, in the bosom of nature, with lunch­es, swim­ming pools and spa treat­ments includ­ed — mom will be grate­ful.

You can issue a cer­tifi­cate for two, and togeth­er with the birth­day girl send dad, her girl­friend to rest or keep her com­pa­ny per­son­al­ly.

Gifts for 80 years

To show care and respect is the best thing an adult son and daugh­ter can do for their moth­er.

1. Home clothes


It can be silk paja­mas, a pleas­ant cot­ton set or a warm suit made of wool or fleece. You need to focus on the styl­is­tic pref­er­ences of your moth­er, the sea­son and the range of her wardrobe.
It is impor­tant to con­sid­er whether mom has aller­gies or buy a gift from hypoal­ler­genic fab­ric. To find out the right size, check the tags from her clothes. And it is bet­ter to opt for a free-cut suit or take a lit­tle more — sizes may vary from man­u­fac­tur­er to man­u­fac­tur­er.

2. Rocking chair

Rocking chair

Today, the fur­ni­ture mar­ket is replete with var­i­ous options. You can choose a clas­sic rock­ing chair made of wood, rat­tan or wick­er, or a lux­u­ri­ous ver­sion with leather trim. There are sim­ple rock­ing chairs, and there are chairs on a pen­du­lum mech­a­nism — when rock­ing, the legs remain motion­less, so it is safer.
The chair will be based on wood or met­al, and the style and uphol­stery can be matched to the inte­ri­or of my mother’s home.

3. Photo album

Photo album
Pho­to: @punchbrandstock,

Many peo­ple like to nos­tal­gic, espe­cial­ly in adult­hood, there is usu­al­ly enough time for this. A great sur­prise for mom on her 80th birth­day will be a beau­ti­ful new pho­to album where you put pic­tures of your fam­i­ly, as ll as shots from her youth.

An alter­na­tive to the clas­sic ver­sion can be a dig­i­tal pho­to frame: before you give a present, load pho­tos into mem­o­ry and explain to your moth­er how to use it.

4. TV


Eval­u­ate the capa­bil­i­ties of your mother’s TV — per­haps it is already out­dat­ed and needs to be replaced. You can buy a copy with a wide diag­o­nal, or you can buy a small one, but cer­tain­ly with high res­o­lu­tion qual­i­ty.

A num­ber of mod­ern TVs are equipped with the Smart TV func­tion — for a larg­er selec­tion of pro­grams and films. But such a pre­fix can be bought sep­a­rate­ly.

5. Massage mattress

Orthopedic pillow

Such a mat­tress is dif­fer­ent from those on which sleep: it is small­er in size, usu­al­ly made of poly­ester, and spe­cial mas­sage heads are placed inside. The thing is pored by elec­tric­i­ty, there is a remote con­trol to switch modes, as a rule, there are sev­er­al speeds and a heat­ing func­tion.

Such a gift will be use­ful for a per­son with prob­lems of the spine and joints, will help main­tain vital­i­ty and improve mood.

How to choose a birthday gift for mom

In order for your present to be remem­bered with grat­i­tude for a long time, you need to do a lot, but inter­est­ing work.

First­ly, you should lis­ten to your moth­er: maybe she will com­plain about how she lacks a food proces­sor or share her dream of a seclud­ed vaca­tion in the moun­tains. Sec­ond­ly, con­nect your eyes: if a moth­er walks with an old phone or takes an old set of clothes to her favorite fit­ness club, in which there is also a flight of beds, then this is a sig­nal for action.

In any case, before buy­ing a gift or orga­niz­ing a sur­prise, ask your­self a lot of ques­tions: does mom have free time, are there any pho­bias, con­traindi­ca­tions, does she real­ly need this thing? You can even make a small ques­tion­naire-ques­tion­naire and go through rel­a­tives and mutu­al acquain­tances with it.

If you set out to please your moth­er, and not just buy a great gift, you will suc­ceed.

Popular questions and ansrs

Our expert ansrs impor­tant ques­tions that may arise in prepa­ra­tion for the hol­i­day, Jahangir Gari­bov, host, show­man, orga­niz­er of adult and children’s events, hol­i­days.

What can not be given to mom for an anniversary?

In addi­tion to the inter­ests and hob­bies of the moth­er, it is imper­a­tive to take into account the age and health of the birth­day girl. When choos­ing a gift, remem­ber that you are buy­ing it not for your­self, but for your moth­er.

For exam­ple, if the 80th anniver­sary is approach­ing, sky­div­ing will prob­a­bly be out of place.

And you also need to take into account that not only the present itself is impor­tant, but also how you con­grat­u­late your moth­er, what kind of par­tic­i­pa­tion you will take in orga­niz­ing a ban­quet. If you invite peo­ple whom she might not want to see with­out her ask­ing, if you are late for the hol­i­day or if you crit­i­cize the treats or dec­o­ra­tions of the hall, this will def­i­nite­ly not please the birth­day girl.

What flors to choose in addition to a gift for mom for an anniversary?

Of course, it is bet­ter to find out what flors mom likes and buy them. But if she doesn’t have any spe­cial pref­er­ences or it’s dif­fi­cult to find out for sure, you can present scar­let ros­es, prefer­ably with thorns — it’s more orig­i­nal.

You def­i­nite­ly can’t give arti­fi­cial flors that mim­ic real, poi­so­nous plants and flors that mom is aller­gic to. By the way, there are women who do not like live bou­quets — in this case, in addi­tion to the gift, you can present, for exam­ple, edi­ble flors or a bou­quet of bal­loons.

What a surprise to give mom for her birthday?

It all depends on your imag­i­na­tion. You can orga­nize a per­for­mance by your mother’s favorite group or sing a song of your own com­po­si­tion, order a magi­cian or a bel­ly dance for a hol­i­day, for exam­ple.

Or you can announce good news to your moth­er (for exam­ple, that she will become a grand­moth­er), but only if you know for sure that this will please her and will not cause unnec­es­sary unrest.

Hov­er, you can do with­out a sur­prise at all — the main thing is to sur­round your moth­er with love and atten­tion on this day. As in all oth­ers.
