Mother’s Day is a week away, and offers a perfect opportunity to show the women in your life that they are appreciated and cared for. Of course, shopping for Mom isn’t always easy: after all, what do you get the woman who gave you LIFE?! 😂 Never fear, I have a handy list of 10 gifts for every type of Mom, whether she’s handy in the garden or kitchen, hands-off and ready to relax, or far away this Mother’s Day. Read on for a gift guide worthy of the woman who loves you most.
For the Mom on the Go:
No outfit is complete without a stellar pair of shoes, and with a cute floral print, she’ll go far! Whether she’s more likely to pair with a hoodie to hit the grocery store, or a bright sweater and straight leg denim, Rifle Paper Co x Keds collaboration can go everywhere—whether your Mom is headed to casual Friday, or the country club. With so many styles, it’ll be hard to settle on just one!
For the Mom with the Green Thumb:
Keep Mom’s tools handy and clothes soil free with this cute Garden Apron from Anthropologie! Forget bulky tool carriers you have to lug around the yard, this multi-pocket utility apron holds all, from sheers to trowel and beyond. That’s one less thing to bend down to grab while pruning the hydrangeas, and her knees will thank you.
For the Mom with Chef Credentials:
If your Mom is more the type to wear the indoor type of apron, consider a personalized kitchen tool that reminds her of her own mother! Custom Recipe Cutting boards are a loving gift that preserves hand-written recipes to memorialize an all-time favorite meal passed down through generations.
For the Mom you want to Pamper:
Give your Mom the extra space to relax in the tub with this Swivel Bath Tray. The design works with any type of bath, and provides a perch for a book and a glass of wine. Go the extra mile and pair this gift with a candle and a bathbomb—and maybe a nice bottle of rosé, while you’re at it. 😉
For the Mom who could use a little Luxury:
Keep her skin glowing with a silky moisturizer that will quickly become an everyday staple. Osea’s Atmosphere Protection Cream features an antioxidant-rich formula that hydrates while providing barrier protection against environmental pollutants, and works wonders under sunscreen.
For the Long-Distance Mom:
Let her know you’re thinking of her with a sweet gift that smells like your home state, wherever you go. Homesick Candles creates scents that harken back to happier times, giving us a healthy taste of nostalgia that burns up to 80 hours. The simple, minimalist design looks great on any console table or mantlepiece, filling the house with an old, familiar scent.
For the Woo-Woo Mom:
If your Mom has a mantra, this is the gift for her. Help foster breakthroughs with a Manifest Ritual Kit, featuring all the bells and whistles needed to awaken inner power and connect to the intuitive senses. This kit gives Mom the tools to call in something bigger than herself, creating momentum and commanding the forces of the universe.
For the Anxious Mom:
Take it from a Mom—there is no better gift than a good night sleep. Unfortunately, women of a certain age often have the hardest time falling asleep and staying asleep. Whether she’s been doom-scrolling before bed or is simply having trouble counting sheep, a Weighted Blanket can help her make the most of her 8 hours with a stylish weave. (I was JUST singing the praises of my own weighted blanket!)
For the Mom who needs some Bling:
It’s impossible to put together a list for Mother’s Day without a golden gift! I love these Gorjana Earrings for an understated, modern look that pairs well with any outfit, but any option from this classic brand will hit the mark, and make Mom smile. And every time she wears them, she’ll think of you!
For the Practical Mom:
Natural, timeless, and high-quality, the Rejuvenation Wooden Bowl passes every test, and elevates any kitchen with its warm wood grain. Whether they’re full of fruit on an island or awaiting use in an open-shelving scheme, these solid cherry nesting bowls look beautiful no matter what work they’re doing.
No matter what you get your mom this Mother’s Day, don’t forget to call or visit! What every Mom wants most is to spend time with their loved ones, near and far. It’s why we do all that mom-stuff for in the first place. 😉
