Mother’s Day 2021 is coming up in just a few weeks (Sunday, May 9th). This is a big gift-giving holiday, and many people will be in buying mode.

Before I forget – if you’d like to access a free training that will help you optimize for Mother’s Day sales and show you:

  • A 6-step ecommerce system that has generated 9 figures in sales..
  • A “secret software” that Don uses to automate the process and find winning products on autopilot…
  • Case Study:  Don willshow you a real eCom site that’s running right now, including single products that have sold over $77,759 by themselves!

..then sign up right here.

With that out of the way — my team also  looked on Etsy to scout out less conventional searches about Mother’s Day gift ideas. I thought these types of searches might be non-competitive niches that could have big sales potential.

I don’t recommend creating Mother’s Day-specific designs, however (e.g. designs that say “Happy Mother’s Day”), as these designs have a limited shelf-life. Rather, I suggest creating more general designs pertaining to these niches, which are sellable year-round.

Below, you’ll find all of my Etsy search results along with several phrases you can use as inspiration for your design ideas.

NOTE: These are phrases I found on other people’s Etsy products so please do not copy any of these phrases directly. Always double-check your phrases and designs for legal trademark and copyright. These are meant to be used only as inspiration.

That said, let’s take a look at these less conventional Mother’s Day design ideas…

“Surrogate mom gift”

These are designs you could make intended as gifts either for surrogate moms themselves or for the moms who’ll raise the babies once they’re born.

I make families. What’s your superpower?
Proud surrogate mom

“Rainbow baby mom gift”

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “rainbow baby mom,” it refers to mothers who have a baby after they’ve had a miscarriage.

After every storm, there’s a rainbow of hope.
Without the rain, there’d be no rainbow.
Blessed by our rainbow, but we’ll never forget our storm.

“Miscarriage gift for mom”

Having a miscarriage is an incredibly difficult thing for mothers to go through so any designs relating to miscarriage should be poignant and thoughtful.

“Infertility gifts”

A lot of women struggle with infertility issues as they try to become pregnant. It may take them a long time or they may need to undergo IVF. The pineapple is a symbol of infertility, so anyway you can incorporate this fruit into your designs would be great. I’ve seen some designs that use a cartoon pineapple in place of certain letters.

For example…

“Fur mom gifts”

Sometimes, either in addition to or instead of human children, moms have fur babies, aka their pets. With these designs, you can keep it general and go the “fur mom” route. Or, you can drill down and make more specific designs, such as dog mom, cat mom, bird mom, horse mom, etc.

Design ideas:

Fur mom
[Insert animal – e.g. cat, chihuahua] mom
From fur mama to baby mama
Only the best fur mams get promoted to baby mama

“Plant mom gift”

Similar to moms who love their pets like children, other moms really love their plants. These are plant moms. Again, you can keep these designs general or you can get more specific and reference certain kinds of plants and/or flowers.

Design ideas:

Plant mom
[Insert plant type – e.g. tulip, succulent] mom

You definitely don’t want to forget step moms as you create Mother’s Day-inspired designs. There are a lot of different types of families and many families include step relatives, which means there’s even more love to go around.

Design ideas:

“Mother remembrance gift”

Mother’s Day can be a challenging time for some people, especially people whose mothers have passed away. But Mother’s Day remembrance gifts can be a great way to keep the memories of those moms alive and remind their loved ones of all the special times they shared.

Design ideas:

I used to be her angel, and now she is mine.
Until we meet again in Heaven – I love you, Mom

“Expecting mom gift”

Some mothers won’t have given birth to their babies by the time Mother’s Day rolls around. But they should still be included in the celebration. And you can make designs specifically with them in mind.

Design ideas:

Bun in the oven

A mother’s first Mother’s Day with her new baby is a very special one. And to honor this occasion, there are a lot of great designs you can come up with, which can be funny or sweet.

Design ideas:
