Any mama in your life will love a thoughtful present on February 14. Here are our picks for gifts that are sweet, meaningful, and even a little unexpected.
Whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day, looking for gift ideas to “suggest” to your significant other, shopping for the moms in your family, or just treating yourself (yep, you can do that!), we’ve rounded up 12 gifts that are sure to delight. So, yes, it’s ok to skip the roses this year and try something a little different to say “I love you.”
Locket: Think of this as the old-fashioned version of the lock screen tribute to your little ones. The Catbird locket comes with a template so you can print a special (albeit small!) photo to go inside the locket for extra “awww” value.
Skincare: Our Pipette Day to Night Kit is ideal for any mother, whether she’s pregnant, postpartum, in charge of carpool, or enjoying her role as Grandma-in-chief. The reef-friendly Mineral SPF 50 goes on sheer and works beautifully under makeup, while the Overnight Brightening Mask gives her that full-night-of-sleep glow–even with a newborn in the house.
Face Mask: Masks are a way of life now, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be as chic as the rest of your outfit. That’s why we love these charming, feminine face masks featuring embroidered scallops or scattered flowers. With the sale of each one of Loeffer Randall’s face coverings, they’ll donate $5 to God’s Love We Deliver, an organization feeding families in need.
Mixology Class: If you would usually plan a date night at a romantic bar for Valentine’s Day, consider turning your own home into one! This virtual Mixology Class takes place on Feb.14th and walks you through making 3 separate V-Day inspired cocktails. And each ticket is per household so you can both get shaken and stirred.
Cooking Class: One of the parts we miss the most about traveling is hanging out with the locals and learning about their favorite foods. Traveling Spoon is making that happen online by connecting you with fantastic cooks all over the world to teach you how to make their local specialties. Choose the location that means the most to your recipient!
DIY Embroidery: Gardening can be difficult in the winter depending on where your Valentine lives, but she can make her home bloom with these sweet DIY embroidery kits filled with succulents, poppies and more.
Oil & Vinegar Set: Up her cooking game with this too-pretty-to-put-away set of olive oils and vinegars from Brightland. Not only can she choose how fruity or herbaceous she wants her oil to be for dinner that night, but she can even learn exactly when it was harvested for a true farm-to-table feeling.
The Nap Dress: Let’s be honest about how much we’ve enjoyed getting to wear comfy clothes basically all the time this past year. Hill House Home has taken it to the next level with their Nap Dresses, which straddle the line between daywear and sleepwear in the sweetest way. What could be a better gift than a dress made to nap in?
Candles: Why give just one candle when you can give a gorgeously packaged trio? From star-beloved Flamingo Estates, these hand-poured vegetable wax candles burn for up to 60 hours each, filling her home with herbaceous garden scents. Need a more budget-friendly option? We love Vellabox’s monthly subscription that delivers natural, artisan-made candles starting at just $10 a month.
Workout: Give the gift of inner peace with a membership to Glo, an app with a vast array of yoga and meditation classes meant to be done from the comfort of your own home. They now offer pilates and other fitness class options as well.
Dessert Pack: Got a mom with a sweet tooth on your list? She’ll love the Sampler pack from NYC’s famed Milk Bar, including their iconic Birthday Cake Truffles and decadent, gooey Milk Bar Pie. You can even schedule up to 30 days in advance for delivery to ensure a proper arrival.
Headband: Any royal-watcher knows that hatbands and headbands are a staple of the Duchess of Cambridge, and we think that these gorgeous patterned versions by Autumn Adeigbo are fit for the queen in your life.
