Special Gifts for Mothers & Daughters

The bond between a mother and daughter is one-of-a-kind. When giving gifts for occasions like Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas and other holidays, consider a present that a mother and daughter can enjoy together. There are many ways to create lasting memories and strengthen connections for a mother and daughter of any age.

Salon or Spa Day

Fathers and husbands can collaborate to give a mother and her daughter a relaxing, rejuvenating day at a salon or spa. They will both look forward to being pampered and spending quality time together while getting their hair done, a massage, manicure and pedicure. Even girls ages 8 and 9 would enjoy this gift.

Matching Clothes

While older girls don't want matching mother-daughter outfits, it is considered cute and adorable for babies or toddlers and their young moms. Shop for matching clothes online and in retail stores and boutiques. Some feature playful phrases such as "Like Mother, Like Daughter" or "Me" (on the mom's shirt) and "Mini Me" (on the daughter's shirt or onesie).


Give matching bracelets or other jewellery to make a mom and daughter feel more united. Be sentimental by including each person's birthstone. Jewellery stores also sell necklaces engraved with heartfelt messages split in two. The mother wears one half, while the daughter wears the other. This gift is perfect as daughters go off to college, get married or move away.


Mothers often bond with their daughters in the kitchen while preparing meals and sharing family recipes and stories. Present both with matching aprons featuring clever sayings. Young girls love this gift, because it gives them more quality time with mom. Add an additional surprise of cooking classes that the two can take together.


As daughters grow older, the days of spending time with mom are fewer and farther between. Plan a mother-daughter shopping trip or a longer getaway. Time together away from the boys, children and grandchildren is refreshing. These trips are popular with travel agents and tour operators, according to Family Travel Network.


Take professional photos of a mother and daughter or multiple generations of women in a family, and present each with a framed copy. Consider paying a little more to have a photograph transferred onto a large, high-quality canvas. Many businesses provide this service, such as Canvas on Demand. It can be a pleasant surprise to have a favourite mother-daughter photo (past or present) placed on canvas.


Numerous books revolve around the special relationship between a mother and her daughter that make wonderful gifts. One such book is "Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul." It spent nine weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List and contains stories that tug at the heartstrings of mothers and daughters alike.


Adventurous mothers and daughters can get matching tattoos. This gift should be carefully considered, but some find tattoos to be comforting and empowering. Feature words or symbolise something the two have in common. Matching tattoos will remind one person of the other during difficult times.
