Mother’s Day is the second Sunday of every May. This day is dedicated to the celebration and appreciation of the special moms in our lives.

Need some gifts ideas to brighten Mom’s day? Grab your military ID and get military discounts on the following gifts that any mother will love!


A beautiful flower arrangement is the perfect way to show how much you appreciate Mom. ProFlowers and FTD can help you out with military discounts on their beautiful flower arrangements and other gifts.


Want to get mom something sparkly? Jewelry is another great Mother’s Day gift. Helzberg Diamonds offers military discounts to help cut the costs of your jewelry purchase.


What mom doesn’t love pictures of her family? Round up the kids and head over to JCPenney, where you can get military discounts at their portrait studio. (Don’t forget to print out the coupon before you go!)

Homemade Gifts

Moms can never have too many homemade gifts for Mother’s Day. From handmade cards to festive signs to other mom-inspired artwork, homemade gifts are always a homerun. Michaels, A.C. Moore, and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores all offer military discounts to help you stock up on art supplies.


Spoil Mom a little and offer her some much-needed relaxation and pampering. Massage Envy offers a military discount program, so sign up and book her a massage.

Prefer to stay home? Make her a home-cooked dinner and follow it with a bubble bath. Yankee Candle offers a military discount so you can buy candles to set a relaxing mood for both the dinner and the tub.

Clothing and Accessories

Spruce up Mom’s wardrobe with new clothes, shoes, or other accessories with deals from a variety of stores. Banana Republic, New York and Company, Old Navy, Rack Room Shoes and Payless all offer military discounts.

Home Decor

Does Mom want something to make her home a little homier? Stores like Kirkland’s, Blinds Chalet, Sam’s Club, BJ’s, Home Depot and Lowes all offer military deals.

A Night Out on the Town

After Mom celebrates with the kids, take her out for some adult fun. First, find a babysitter at, where military personnel can get discounted memberships.

Then take her to dinner and a movie and use military discounts at theaters like Regal and Cinemark. Many restaurants, like Melting Pot, offer military discounts as well so make sure you ask wherever you go.

Or plan ahead and find out what fun local events are going on. Is she a sports fan? Buy her tickets to a Major League baseball game. Many MLB baseball teams offer military discounts on tickets.
