The bond between a mother and son is a special one. Whether you are giving a gift to a mom and her new infant, or a mother and her older son, you may be flummoxed at the right gift to buy. Give a thoughtful gift to them that commemorates their special relationship. Think outside the box and get the perfect gift.

A fun and maybe silly gift option for a mother and son is matching, personalised clothing. Choose pyjamas for both, or a shirt for mom and onesie for son. Some options for sayings include "Happy Mom" and "Happy Kid." This gift option is obviously more appropriate for a mother and baby, versus an older child.


Another option for a heartfelt gift is giving them each a watch. This is appropriate for a mother and her adult son. It's usually best to give the mother a woman's watch, which is smaller than a man's watch. To really make it special, engrave a message on the back of each watch. Add a message with both of their names on it and perhaps a special message that mentions the relationship between mother and son.


Jewellery celebrates the bond between mother and son. Necklace's with pendants and charms that have Chinese characters, one for mother and one for son, is perfect for any age. It's appropriate to give mother and son necklaces that don't match. Perhaps give the mother a locket with her picture and her son's picture in it. Give the son a necklace that is a bit more masculine, such as a dog tag style of necklace, with a quote engraved on the back that is about mothers and sons.


Pictures are frozen memories. The mother of a son will delight in picture frames to showcase him. Give both the mother and son two-sided picture frames with a picture of the mother on one side and a picture of the son on the other side. A picture frame with spaces open for multiple pictures is another idea for mother and son.
