Home décor

After a long year of spending more time at home, your mom could probably use some new décor to liven up her living space! At Ohio Valley Goodwill, you can easily find artwork, shelf décor, throw pillows, glassware, lamps, and collectible items. One thoughtful gift idea is to pick up a few frames from Goodwill and fill them with original artwork or favorite family photos!

Kitchen supplies

If your mom loves to bake or cook, make her a culinary-inspired gift! Head to Goodwill to explore our selection of kitchenware, baking supplies, and cookbooks. You could even make a themed gift “basket” by filling a large mixing bowl with smaller gifts like cookie cutters, spatulas, hand towels, and an apron.

DIY bouquet

Flower delivery services can be expensive, especially at the last minute. If you’re lucky enough to live near your mom (or grandma, mother-in-law, etc.), assemble your own bouquet instead! Shop at Goodwill for beautiful, budget-friendly vases in almost any size and shape. Get extra thrifty by creating a bouquet using flowers from your own garden or rearrange a store-bought bouquet with a colorful ribbon.

Thrift store shopping trip

We get it — some moms are hard to shop for! One gift that money can’t buy is quality time, and what better way to spend time together than to go thrift shopping? Plan a thrifting day with your mom and see what amazing Goodwill bargains you can find! With the money you save by thrift shopping, you could go out for lunch or dinner afterward and enjoy even more bonding time together.
