Mom & daughter gifts
There's a special bond between a mother and daughter. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

Your mother is your best friend, your most earnest advocate and your fiercest defender. Your daughter is a special part of you, sharing your life and bringing you joy. Whether you're a daughter looking for a way to honour your mother, or a mother wanting to affirm your daughter, give a gift that celebrates this special bond. These are mother-daughter gifts that celebrate the relationship between a daughter and her mother -- most with sentiments engraved on the gift.


There are many jewellery designs from a daughter to her mother, from two pendants that each hold half of a heart to identical bracelets. You might buy your mother a locket and put your photo inside, an engraved ring with a message such as "World's Best Mom" or personalised charm bracelets with charms shaped like hearts or set with the birthstones of her children.


If you want to tell your daughter how much you love her, or if you want to give her words of wisdom, but just can't find the words, there are books from a mother to her daughter that will say it for you in either prose or verse. Alternatively, you can buy book kits that will instruct you how to write a mother-daughter journal or keepsake book that tells your life story, family history or the story of your daughter's life from your perspective.

Photos, Videos and Albums

If your mom's photo albums are bursting at the seams, or if her old videos are no longer watchable because she no longer has a VCR player, you might give her the gift of an upgrade. Take her photos or videos to a photography shop and have them put onto a DVD. This will probably bring her a lot of joy, particularly if she hasn't seen the old photos or videos for a long while, and will bring back happy memories for both of you. Alternatively, you can give your mother an engraved photo frame or a personalised photo album.


It is a time-honoured tradition for a mother to give her daughter a keepsake -- some precious object that symbolises love to pass down to her own daughter. This is sometimes jewellery, a treasured dress or a piece of furniture that's been in the family for hundreds of years. It could be a handmade quilt, a family Bible or a historical artefact.

The Greatest of These Is Love

The best mother-daughter gift idea is probably the simplest and easiest of all. Write a letter to your mother -- or your daughter -- telling her how much you love her and what she's meant to you. Use examples of times she did something that especially touched you, and don't hold anything back. This will mean more to her than anything else you could give.
