6 Inspirational Gift Ideas for Your Mom Friends

Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, Mother’s Day, or other holiday—or simply shoring up a mom friend who needs a little lift—all these occasions offer you important opportunities to reflect on the profound value of friendship. It’s nice to have friends who understand—friends who are reassuring, comforting and willing to step into the messy parts of our lives. And, it’s especially nice to have someone who “gets it” as we walk through the seasons of motherhood. Being a mom is a messy, wonderful, chaotic, beautiful journey: one that includes sleepless nights, first words, scary hospital visits, giggles, supermarket tantrums, first days of kindergarten, middle school growing pains, outstanding accomplishments, first loves, driving lessons, let-downs, winning the state tournament, graduation, dorm life and on and on and on. It is a roller coaster of highs and lows, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed. So, one can only imagine how important it is to have mom friends—women you’ve met through Christian mom groups, your children’s school, or lifelong friends from your own childhood—friends who know exactly what you are talking about when you ask “do you ever get alone time?” or “do you think our teenagers really hate us?” They don’t judge us, but offer a simple reminder: You are not alone in this selfless journey.

At DaySpring, we have Scripture-filled, Christian gifts for moms that are sure to inspire any mom and remind her of where her strength truly lies. Below are 6 great gift ideas for mom friends that will encourage them to keep on, keeping on, even on their busiest, most exhausting days:

1. A Faith-Filled Journal or Notebook - Writing in a journal is a great way to reflect upon and strengthen your daily walk with Christ. It's also just a great way to keep track of what is happening every day and to look back and remember. This is something every mother needs.

2. Drinkware with an Inspiring Message - She can take this with her to the gym, the office, the pool—anywhere! It’s stylish with an inspiring message.

3. Journaling Bible - Invite her to slow down, take a moment for herself, and bask in the soul-nourishment that comes from being creative and letting God's Word soak into her heart.

4. A Prayer A Day - Perpetual Calendar - This calendar is a great, daily reminder of Hope and Encouragement for your friend.

5. Inspirational Wall Art - Inspire your friend with words of Truth that encourage her to step out of the comfort zones and do all God has purposefully chosen her to do.
