Gift Ideas for a Girlfriend's Mom

Updated February 21, 2017

When selecting great gift ideas for your girlfriend's mom, take into account her likes and dislikes. This prevents you from giving her a gift she may not ever use. If you wish to impress your girlfriend and her mother when you present your gift, spend some time doing your homework -- for example, find out her favourite bands, her favourite chocolate and her favourite author.

Spa Day

Pamper your girlfriend's mother with a day to the spa. If your girlfriend and her mother do not spend a large amount of time together because of a busy lifestyle, treat her mother to a day at the spa with her daughter. You need to purchase a spa day for two. This gift idea allows mother and daughter to spend a day together being pampered, talking and eating.

DVD Movies

Create a "movie night" gift basket for your girlfriend's mother. Select a brightly coloured basket and insert a variety of DVD movies -- for example, drama and comedy movies, popcorn and hot cocoa. Tie a ribbon around the handle as a decoration. For an added bonus, purchase your girlfriend's mother a gift token to a movie rental store.


Present your girlfriend's mother with a collection of books by her favourite author and hot cocoa or tea to sip on while she reads. When selecting the books, find out what books she currently owns, as this will keep you from purchasing her a book she already has.

CD Collection

Ask your girlfriend or her mother what her favourite bands are. Purchase or create a collection of CDs. This gift allows her to enjoy her favourite bands and songs anytime she wishes to do so.


If your girlfriend's mother has a green fingers or enjoys plants, purchase a variety of plants for her home. Include plants for inside and outside her home. Select colourful, decorative pots for each plant or spray paint the plant pots in chalkboard paint and write a message on each pot.


Send your girlfriend's mother a bouquet of her favourite flowers to either her home or work. Select her favourite flowers in her favourite colours and purchase a bold, bright vase to hold them.
