Mother's Day is only a few short days away and chances are you're still looking for that perfect gift. If you've been raised a Disney fan, then it's likely your mom is a Disney fan as well and would enjoy getting a Disney-themed present this year.
Whether you have no budget, a tight budget, or an unlimited budget, there's something for everyone at your local Disney Store or at DisneyStore.com. As there are so many products to chose from, this list has been created to help narrow down your choices and help you find the best gift to give your mom this year.
Now if you're one of those who has no budget this year for a Mother's Day gift, there's no need to worry. Often the most cherished gifts are those that have been made and given with love. Here are some ideas for things you can do or make to celebrate how special your mom is.
- Create a collage of pictures of you and your mom through the years. They can be any pictures or you can use pictures from past Disney vacations.
- Create a playlist of your favorite Disney songs that remind you of your mom and the good times you've had. (It's okay if you include "Mother Knows Best" from Disney's "Tangled.")
- Have a Disney movie marathon right at home with you and your mom with snacks themed to the movies. Pick movies that highlight moms like "Tarzan" and "Dumbo."
For those with a budget, whether large or small, click through the images to view the list of gift ideas you can get at the Disney Store. Remember, if you're ordering online, you will need to choose their 2-day or 3-day shipping options in order to receive your package on time. And of course wrap it.

Comfortable Disney pajamas are also a great gift, especially with the warmer weather finally arriving. Do you have a special Disneyland or Walt Disney World vacation coming up with your mom? She can wear these comfortable pajamas to bed as she relaxes from a full day at the parks.
These also come in a variety of colors, sizes, and characters, and also have pants as separates. Take a look at the options available here.
Under $40- Cell Phone Case
Add some Disney style to your mom's phone (if she has a smart phone that is) with a Disney themed cell phone case. With classic characters like Mickey and Minnie, even ones with the characters' ears sticking out, there are so many to chose from.
This gift works best if you know the type of phone your mom has as styles will vary depending on the brand of phone she has. You want to be sure the case will fit when you give it to her. Take a look at the different styles available here.
$40-$100 Price Range- Alex and Ani
Alex and Ani also have created their own set of Disney themed jewelry that guests can purchase. At $39.95 each, styles come in both silver and gold with your choice of classic Disney characters, Cinderella Castle, your initials, and other designs.
$40-$100 Price Range- Workout T-Shirts
Is your mom getting to run one of the runDisney races this year? She'll need the proper gear while she's training.
This Disney workout shirt is made of polyester and spandex which allows the skin to remain cool as you're working up a sweat. Machine washable, the paisley design features Mickey, Pluto, and Goofy. See if you can find them all.
$40-$100 Price Range- Vera Bradley Bag
If your mom is a big Vera Bradley fan, and you have it in your budget to get more for her than the ID case, there are a variety of bags to chose from that feature the Midnight with Mickey design.
Prices range from $60-$99 depending on the size bag that you want. However, take notice that the regular bag, backpack, and large duffel bag are all the same price. How you choose to spend that $99 is up to you, but if you're spending that kind of money, you'll want to chose the product your mom will use the most.
If you'll be in Disney World's Downtown Disney, you may also be able to get your hands on the new Vera Bradley design. See the Disney Parks Blog for details.
$40-$100 Price Grange- Watch
If your mom is constantly going through her purse to find her cell phone to see what time it is, maybe it's time for her to get a watch. Or you can give her one for Mother's Day.
This beautiful watch featuring Mickey goes well with any jewelry style as both gold and silver are prominent with little hidden Mickeys in the links. The watch works for every day use and for formal occasions and can bring a touch of Disney to your mom's every day routine.
$100 and Up- Dooney and Bourke
For those of you who have the budget to spend over $100 on a Mother's Day gift, you have the option of choosing any of the gifts previously mentioned, or you can splurge and get your mom an Disney Dooney and Bourke bag.
