Now more than ever, let's make Mom feel special and appreciated for all she does.
Mother’s Day is the time we stop to thank all the moms in our lives for being so amazing. Whether the day starts with breakfast in bed, a handmade card, or just a little time off for some much-needed R&R, it’s all about doing things to say “we love you.” We’ve curated a list of 12 gifts we think she’ll love—and can actually use. Most importantly, Happy Mother’s Day from us to all the spectacular moms out there!
A GOOD BOOK: What sounds nicer than relaxing with a good book (ok, twist our arms and add in a glass of wine too)? Let mom choose her own reading with a gift certificate to Bookshop, which connects you to the best independent bookstores across the country—all of which could definitely use our support right now.
A WINE TASTING: Yes, you can do a virtual wine tasting (with real live wine!) thanks to the brilliant minds at St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery, a sustainably farmed winery in the heart of Napa Valley. The kit with the week’s tasting gets sent out in advance and you can follow along to learn all about the nose and notes of your wines—and what delicious sustainable seafood to pair them with.
A SELF-CARE MOMENT: Sure, we’re biased, but our To Mama, With Love gift set kind of has everything expecting and postpartum moms need for an at-home spa ritual, including our Zen-inducing Relaxing Body Wash, Relaxing Body Lotion, and extra-rich Belly Butter. Plus the kit includes an exclusive body brush for dry brushing, our favorite technique for energizing askin, exfoliating, reducing the appearance of cellulite, and helping the body naturally detoxify.
HAND-PICKED FLOWERS: Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can ensure the moms you want to treat this year get a hand-picked bouquet. BloomsyBox works with farms across the country to ship the freshest flowers, and if you want to make it a real treat, you can do a monthly subscription box as a gift.
A LOVE NOTE: John Derian is beloved for his signature decoupage dishes, paperweights and cake stands. This May, you can give the gift of love with his decorative plate based on an antique print. The dish is perfect for hanging on a gallery wall or using as a jewelry holder on a vanity.
A CHEEKY THROW: Even cool moms love a little acknowledgement for their efforts. St. Frank’s hand-embroidered alpaca throw with a vintage tattoo motif is edgy and cuddly all at the same time—sound like any ladies in your life?
A SILHOUETTE: Modern life is hectic and rushed (yes, even when you aren’t leaving your home!). But a classic silhouette drawing makes you feel like the world has slowed down just a tiny bit—and is a timeless memento to remember those fleeting childhood profiles.
A RECIPE BOX: Whether she’s a gourmet chef or just getting the hang of an Instant Pot, a charmingly retro recipe box will make her kitchen forays that much more enjoyable. Start her off with a few of your favorite family recipes to make it even more personal.
A KEEPSAKE RING: Maybe you know a mom that’s never got into the whole “mom” jewelry thing. Ariel Gordon’s modern and sleek birthstone ring takes all the cheese out, but is a sweet reminder of the months when her babies were born.
A GREAT MEAL: We all know it’s pretty challenging to take our mothers out to dinner right now, and that our favorite local restaurants are hurting. Give her a gift certificate to help keep those restaurants afloat—and as an IOU for a night out when everything opens back up again (Giftly thoughtfully allows her to be involved in the choice of restaurant).
A COMFY HOUSE SHOE: What’s more of a win than a slipper that looks chic enough to wear anywhere? Sabah’s traditionally made Morrocan slip-ons and slides are perfect for WFH, weekends in the house, or talking walks with the family in the neighborhood.
A CUTE MUG: Mugs are a go-to gift for a reason. They’re relatively affordable and are as good a desk accessory for pens as they are for that much-needed first cup of coffee in the morning. Claudia Pearson’s cheery illustrations up the ante, from sweet succulents to grumpy cats.
