(BPT) - If you think your mom wants another messy breakfast in bed that ends with her scrubbing pancake batter off the counter, think again. Moms today are looking for modern gifts that speak to their personality and create an experience for them and their family. Here are some options that go beyond the boring gifts and offer a fresh take on the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your modern mom.


Flowers may be a classic choice, but moms love them. The annual report from the National Retail Federation notes that two-thirds of those celebrating Mother’s Day will be celebrating with flowers. This year, put a new spin on a classic gift with a modern favorite – orchids. As the 2014 color of the year, radiant orchid is a bright and beautiful color guaranteed to make any mom smile. ProFlowers carries fresh radiant orchids that would make the perfect on-trend gift for modern moms this year.

Online shopping spree

Today’s modern mom wears many hats, and she deserves a different outfit for each of those hats. Buying her a new blouse for work or a silk scarf for an evening out is a classic choice, but consider letting her choose her own outfit in the comfort of her own home. Modern moms have their favorite online store, so don’t take all the browsing fun away from them – help your mom relax with a delicious champagne brunch and let her choose what she wants for Mother’s Day. Just don’t be surprised if the gift she wants is already bookmarked under her favorites! If she needs a little guidance, RedEnvelope.com offers a variety of unique products, from sentimental jewelry to linen pillows that can be personalized for a perfect Mother’s Day gift she’ll remember for years to come.

Tasty treats

Every mom loves a box of chocolates, and it’s the perfect way to indulge her on a special day. But if you really want to astound your modern mom, thrill her palate with gourmet dipped strawberries from Shari’s Berries. These delectable desserts treat her taste buds to the sweet treat of chocolate and the savory deliciousness of ripe strawberries, all in one.

Personal assistance

There is little time to rest for the modern mom because of her numerous professional and personal obligations. So why not give her the gift of assistance? Tackle that outside project she’s been putting off, run those errands she doesn’t have time for or offer to babysit while she enjoys the opportunity to relax. Your assistance may be just what she needs to recharge her batteries.

Techy mom

The modern mom on your list may have every new tech gadget on the market, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a unique way for her to enjoy her modern devices. Personal Creation’s 3 Piece Ikat Print Phone, iPad Case and Sleeve Set provides the cases she needs for her iPhone and iPad, all with a fun, modern print personalized with her name that she’ll enjoy displaying all year long.
