It’s every woman’s desire to have a clutter-free, peaceful sanctuary. All we want is for the walls to be filled with joy and love for those we love.
When asked “What do you want for mother’s day?” I’m pretty sure we can all answer with a resounding “nothing-I just want to be with you” 🙂
I don’t know one mom out there that doesn’t work tirelessly to get things accomplished within the walls of their home and beyond, to support their partner and children. If you’re anything like me, I find myself saying things like “Why can’t things be easier?” I like simple things. I strive for S.I.M.P.L.E
With technology, busy schedules and the endless amount of things we can buy. I wanted to make a list of things I’ve encountered that either simplify or add JOY to moms’ lives.
Here are my top 9 clutter-free gift ideas for your mom.
First on my list has to be a long distance friendship lamp. There are a few different models out there. A very dear client of mine had this in her home and watching her touch the lamp and feel connected to her sister and mom made an impact in my life. The connection she felt was palpable.
I miss my mom in Santa Barbara so much. She feels so far away, sometimes. Especially during COVID when we weren’t able to see our loved ones. I love this concept! It’s definitely an item that adds joy to mom’s life. Here’s some verbiage from the website:
“Long distance relationships can be challenging, but when it’s meant to be, you’ll do whatever it takes to keep that special someone close no matter the distance. When you can’t be together in person, sending a touch of light is a special way to show your partner/family how much you love and miss them.”
This gift takes a little planning. Do you know that when I organize people’s homes the one thing I see people care about the most is their photos. Those precious memories are either stored on VHS tapes that they can’t play anymore, old cassettes, or photos stuck on their phone. Having all of that organized in one place can give mom peace of mind and hours of enjoyment. I once helped a beautiful mom digitize all of her son’s photos and created a digital frame with his favorite song playing in the background. It was beautiful and she couldn’t contain her tears. Getting the process started can be so life changing!
Cookware that is scratched should be replaced ASAP. Why? Because your health is important! It’s a top priority! Gifting mom or yourself new cookware is a very special meaningful gift. I could literally cry. These Caraway Cooking pans are beautiful, they’re ceramic coated and come with their own organizers to make them easy to access in your cabinets. Go ahead and spoil mom, you won’t regret it!
Packing cubes keep your clothes grouped at all times. The benefits of that are: You could match wardrobe pieces together and they won’t get lost in your luggage, You’ll be ready for the actual fun in a snap, your clean clothes won’t get mixed with your dirty clothes, and best of all when you get home it will be even easier to unpack your luggage. No sorting is needed. Perfect gift for the mom that is always traveling.
Having symmetrical containers is similar to streamlined hangers in your closet – It makes it easier to find what you’re looking for and it allows you to maximize space in drawers and pull out spice organizers. Want to add a little style? Then these neat method spice jars with labels might just be a match made in heaven for mom.
“What’s in your bag” is a fun challenge to participate in at parties but not when you’re in a rush and you can’t find your keys, especially if it’s at night. A purse organizer is a perfect way to give your purse structure, a defined home for everything mom needs to keep in there, plus it makes it easier when she needs to swap between purses.
The average woman spends 76 days of her life searching through her purse. That’s a lot of time! Get your mom a purse organizer.

Laundry spaces do a lot of heavy lifting for us. Bless the lord for laundry piles because it means we are clothed! But it’s one of the spaces that could always use some systems to keep things within reach and easily accessible. Many times cabinets are too high to store detergent and essentials causing these items to be a cluttered mess on top of the washing machine. In these instances. When there is space between the washer and dryer, this lovely rolling cart is a lifesaver.
The day we purchased this combo it was intended as a gift for my husband for fathers day. It was intended to help him have a routine in the morning with Alexa and the camera was so that he can keep an eye on his kids. He was weary about it being placed in the bedroom so instead, we installed it on our kitchen counter.
It has made grocery shopping so much easier because when I am cleaning out my refrigerator, I simply yell “Alexa, add x x x x to my shopping list” It’s wonderful! Then I check things off the shopping list at the store through the App.
I am able to check in on the kids when I am out on a job. I’m sure all mothers out there feel me when I say it’s such a relief to be able to see them and talk to them through the KASA speaker. My favorite feature is that Amazon Echo acts as a phone for my son who is 10 years old, and does not have a cell phone yet. He can call me at any time through the Echo.
It’s the one piece of technology that has been nice to me. lol
I put a lot of thought into this list. So I hope you were able to find something that will add value to your and your mom. What about you? Do you have any clutter-free suggestions that have simplified your life?
I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
