These elegant bracelets come in both silver and gold, and will be both a great addition to her wardrobe and a good luck charm for all the games. The two-sided charm that says "Mom" on the front, and "Bonded by love, connected for life" on the back, and each bracelet is adjustable meaning that you don’t have to worry about sizing. Mom can add more charms to this bracelet if she so chooses, or you could give her a new charm every year for her birthday or Mother’s Day.
These coolers are perfect for toting any kind of drink along to a game, with an adjustable shoulder strap for easy carrying and enough room for 24 standard soda cans — making it possible to fit in any after-game snack for the kiddos, too. Plus, if Mom ever wants to host a party, she can store drinks in these while also playing tunes from the wireless bluetooth speakers.
Vendor: Sunglass Hut
These are great as a gift on their own, or in tandem with her new baseball hat to create the ideal sun-protection team. These frames leave behind the inconvenience of easily-bent metal with sturdy nylon material, so they’ll be able to protect Mom’s eyes for quite a while. The sunglasses also come with their own case, making for easy transportation to and from games.

With embroidered stitching on the shade and a bat-shaped stand carved from solid oak, this lamp is the perfect classy nod to Mom’s passion for baseball. It would make for a perfect lamp in her kid’s room, or even in her own if she so pleases. Wherever she chooses to put it, this lamp will bring the fun atmosphere of the field into the home.
It’s only natural for a mom to be proud of her children’s achievements, including those made on the baseball field. By presenting her with framed photos of these moments, you’re allowing her to remember them forever. This sleek frame from Joann Fabrics can hold three 4x6-inch photos and will fit perfectly on any tabletop. This will give the kids a chance to relive their glory, too, even after they grow up and forget all about that home run.
It may be difficult for Mom to get her kids to wear sunscreen when they’re on the field, but with Shiseido sunscreen, they won’t be able to find a reason to complain. The lotion is fast-absorbing, completely invisible, and not sticky, and it becomes even more effective when exposed to water, making it perfect for sweaty, sport-playing kids. Mom can use it to protect her skin when she attends the games, and its smooth finish means she can still wear makeup on top.
Baseball moms are always up and about, running errands, dropping off and picking up kids, and just generally being moms.

These white ones look especially stylish, and they go perfectly with just about any outfit.

If she’s really feeling generous, she might even share some with the kids.
Beautiful flowers from 1-800-Flowers will lift anyone’s spirit, and baseball moms are no exception. An arrangement with the team’s colors, perhaps in a baseball vase, makes the perfect gift to celebrate the beginning or end of the season. If you want to go the extra mile, find out what Mom’s favorite flowers are and be sure to include them in the bouquet.
Baseball moms everywhere deserve to be honored for the hard work they do to ensure that their child has the best experience possible in the sport. While these gifts work well for many moms, make sure that you’re keeping in mind your recipient’s specific tastes and desires. Maybe she wants to proclaim to the world that she’s a baseball mom, or maybe she prefers a more subtle gift. Whatever the case may be, a thoughtful gift will be able to show your appreciation of her and all that she does.
