Mother’s Day is the next big gift-giving holiday and can be a great way to both appreciate your mother and boost your sales this time of year.
Whether you’re a seasoned gift seller or just starting out, I’ve got you covered with winning Mother’s Day design ideas that are sure to impress. And it gets better! I’ve compiled a list of CustomHappy products that are guaranteed to make fantastic Mother’s Day gifts. From customized mugs to personalized photo albums, you’ll find something perfect for every type of mom.
Let’s dig in…
These products make the best custom gifts for moms
Below, you’ll find a list of products available on CustomHappy.com that have high selling potential around Mother’s Day. You’ll also find a link to mockups for that product plus a design example from Etsy.
When you create designs for your custom gifts for moms, create mostly evergreen designs as opposed to Mother’s Day-specific designs. That way, your products have year-round selling potential.
You can include a few “Happy Mother’s Day” designs if you’d like. But when it comes to selling Mother’s Day gifts, the bulk of your designs should focus on the more evergreen topic of love and appreciation for your mother grandmother, stepmother, mother-in-law, daughter, niece, aunt, et cetera.
And don’t forget to create versions of your designs for the different ways to say mother and grandmother – for example, mom, mama, mommy, grandma, nana, et cetera.
You can also create designs about…
- mothers-to-be – anyone who is pregnant over Mother’s Day
- pet moms – anyone who considers their fur baby (dogs, cats, etc.) to be their child
- mothers who’ve passed away – people who’ve lost their moms still want to keep their memories alive
- Adoptive moms
- Foster moms
- Rainbow moms
- Stepmoms / bonus moms
Create a mix of funny and sweet messages for your designs – for example, “You’re the best mom in the world. I love you to the moon and back” or “If I had another mom, I’d kick her in the shins and go find you.”
Additionally, you can put most designs you come up with for one product on other products as well. For example, if you make a mug that says, “My grandma is my favorite person,” you can also put that phrase on a candle, coaster, journal, et cetera. Always work smarter, not harder.
Here are some additional tips about creating winning Mother’s Day designs:
- Keep it simple
- Use high-quality images
- Consider your target audience
- Offer personalization (This is a must for Mother’s Day gifts. Let customers add names, dates, photos, or special messages to the designs.)
Now, let’s look at the list of the best Custom Happy products for Mother’s Day…

How to optimize your custom gifts for moms
Once you create designs for your custom gifts for moms, you need to optimize your listings. Optimizing means adding images that show your product from a variety of angles. Plus, you should add lifestyle images that show your products in use (use my mockups which I link to below).
Additionally, you need to add relevant keywords to your listings’ titles, descriptions, and tags.
Here’s a list of some popular Mother’s Day-related keywords according to Etsy and Amazon:
Mother’s Day keywords work well this time of year. And they help your listings gain visibility. But you should swap out your Mother’s Day keywords for evergreen terms after the holiday passes. Shoppers aren’t likely to search for the phrase “Mother’s Day gifts” in July. But they may still search for the phrase “gifts for mom.”
Again, this helps you sell your products year-round, not just around Mother’s Day.
