LDS Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: Great Gifts for LDS Women

Mother’s day is quickly approaching! If you’re like me, then you have yet to buy something for those wonderful women in your life. Today I am sharing a great list of LDS Mother’s Day Gift Ideas that I have and love, and some things that are on my ‘wish list’. I hope my list will help make finding that perfect gift a little easier. Enjoy!

Mother's Day LDS Gift Ideas

I decided to split up my list into categories to make it a little easier to read. My list is not in any type of order, just FYI. 🙂


Books to Read

Let’s talk about books. I love reading, and read all the time…until I started school. Now I am busy reading school materials, but every now and then I try to squeeze in a little reading. I recently read “Once There Was A Mom”, and loved it!

Once There Was A Mom

This is a very quick read, but is such a wonderful book about Motherhood. A few days ago my mother-in-law had to watch my children for a few hours while my husband and I attended meetings. Before I left, I showed her the book and asked her to read it. When I got home, I found a wonderful little note from my Mother-in-law telling me that she had read the book to my children. Everyone loved it, and they even discusses mothers and all that they do.

“For every mom who has ever wondered if all the little things she does in a day make a difference, Once There Was a Mom offers hope and encouragement. Take it from someone who, like you, has read story after story, sung lullaby after lullaby, and even taken the batteries out of the toys once in a while! The truth is, little things are much more important than we may think. With contemporary, stylized illustration by artist Destin Cox, this charming gift book will bring a smile to the face of mothers of any age.”

Worth The Wrestle

This isn’t a book about women or mothers, but this is an absolutely AMAZING book! Last year I watched a piece of Sister Dew’s talk titled, “Engage in the Wrestle”, so when I heard about this book I knew I had to read it. It of course did not disappoint.

Worth the Wrestle Sheri Dew

After I received this book I showed it to one of my good friends, Danielle. She was very interested in it because she recognized the artist, James Christensen, that created the cover. She told me about the artist’s other paintings, and how she loved them. We wanted to know which painting was on the cover, so we looked inside and saw that it is named, “Hold to the Rod”. Did you happen to notice the rod at the top of the picture on the cover? This man is trying to hang on to all of his worldly possessions, while looking up to the rod. I did not notice this until my friend and I started looking at the painting a little more closely.

I have recommended this book to so many people since reading it. It is a wonderful book, and it would even make a great gift for graduation.

“In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.”

One In Charity

This book is a compilation of talks from the 2016 BYU Women’s Conference. It’s from Women’s Conference, so this would be a great gift to give on the day we celebrate women!

I haven’t finished this book, but I have enjoyed what I have read. There are so many wonderful talks out there that we have never heard, so I always love when there are books that combine several amazing talks into one book. “One in Charity” includes talks from:

Elder Dale R. Renlund and Sister Ruth L. Renlund, Linda K. Burton, Barbara Morgan Gardner, Kathleen Hughes, Kristen M. Oaks, Camille Fronk Olson, Virginia H. Pearce, Sandra Rogers, Kevin J Warthen, and Brad Wilcox.

Now let’s talk about music. As a Mother, I spend time in my car with my children. Now that they’re a little older, they almost always want to listen to music. My husband and I try to find uplifting music to play because our girls love to sing, and quickly learn the lyrics of songs. Here are a few of my favorites that I listen to in the car and at home.

City of Enoch

I received this CD a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it as much as my other CD’s (below), but I have LOVED it! It is now one of my favorite albums.

Every single song on this CD is amazing. A few of my favorites are: Sweet Redeemer, God So Loved the World, Because He Lives, and Bountiful, but seriously every song is amazing!

City of Enoch is the group that you have been waiting for, with a captivating sound that is described as “Lady Antebellum harmonies meet Christian Contemporary praise.” This debut album from a rising trio features new songs, great Christian covers, and an incredible new arrangement of the classic hit ‘He Hears Me’.”

Nathan Pacheco: Higher

I reviewed this beautiful album a few months ago, HERE. It didn’t take long for “Higher” to become one of my favorites. Every song on this CD is beautiful.Mother's Day Gift IdeasI immediately fell in love with the song “Forever,” but after listening to this album over and over, I have found a few more favorites. I think my new favorite song is “Come As You Are”. I could listen to that song over and over. Some other favorites of mine are: In Christ Alone, How Great Thou Art, Come Thou Fount, and Through All My Days.

Piano Guys

My family LOVES the Piano Guys. We have a few of their cd’s, and listen to them frequently. I love that my children enjoy the songs even though it’s instrumental music. Two of our favorite CD’s are The Piano Guys and The Piano Guys 2. Each of these cd’s include some fun songs that my children recognize, like Star Wars, Charlie Brown, What Makes You Beautiful, and Lord of the Rings.

LDS Mother's Day Gift Ideas

I don’t think you can go wrong with a Piano Guys CD, they’re all amazing. If you haven’t checked out their music videos be sure you do, they’re just as awesome. My kids love watching them.

“The Piano Guys have become a YouTube sensation with their clever and inspiring takes on popular music and creative videos that accompany them. From Beethoven to Adele, their eclectic mix of classical, film score, rock, and pop favorites resonate with audiences across generations and from all walks of life.”
