Mother and son gifts are time and money savers if the mother and son share a birthday. They can also make great gifts if the mother and son have been through a tough time together. Dads can give these gifts to moms on Mother's Day. Whether a mom has a new baby boy or a grown son, these gifts will give mother and son an opportunity to share quality time together.

Young Son

If the mom has a brand-new baby son, she will want some items that will help her remember and cherish the early memories with her boy. Get her a journal to record her memories and include words of advice to both the mother and son about life with the other. Both mother and son can use a larger journal, provided he has gained some motor skills. As she jots down her thoughts about motherhood and her growing boy on one side of the journal, he can scribble and draw pictures on the facing page. A photography package, which includes a sitting fee and a package of prints, will allow the mother to capture pictures of her little boy. A two-sided frame can be filled with one picture of her little boy and one picture of his dad when he was the same age. The mother will enjoy looking at both men in her life and comparing their features.

Older Son

As a boy grows, both mother and son will cherish shared memories. A gift that allows them to enjoy such experiences will be invaluable. If they like to cook, a new gadget or cookbook encourages them to try new and healthy recipes together. An upgrade to such a gift would be cooking or pastry-making lessons at a local cooking school. They will both learn valuable skills and share memories. Other experience gifts might include tickets to sports games or an opportunity to learn a new sport or craft.

Adult Son

An adult son might be away, busy at school or occupied at his job. Ways to keep in touch make great gifts for this age group. From stationery and stamps to laptops and webcams, items that will help mother and son communicate will be priceless. When they are together, they might appreciate unique memory-making times. Give them a gift token to learn to surf, ski or skydive together. If the son is getting married, he may be planning a mother-son dance at the reception. Both might appreciate a dance lesson or two.
