Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is always the holiday that sneaks up on us the most. This year, we’re not letting that happen! If leaving your Mother’s Day gift up to the family is too much of a gamble, feel free to share some of our great ideas with your partner, spouse, friend, or kid. A full day of rest is not included on this list, but comes highly recommended!

Gift Ideas for Moms on the Go

As summer vacation is fast approaching, we included some Mother’s Day gift ideas for moms on the go this year. The Béis Large Check-in Roller is a great all-around suitcase for family travel, but how funny is their version of this suitcase in Text Me Red?

Gift Ideas for Relaxation

Let’s be honest: every mom deserves a day of rest, relaxation, and pampering. Give her the hour or two alone that she deserves to take a nice warm bath with the D.S. & Durga Be Still Candle, Lazarus Douvos Rose Shampoo, and the Persephone Book of Short Stories.

Some of you know that I volunteer for the Look Good Feel Better organization by doing a monthly workshop to help cancer patients remain confident with their wardrobes after receiving a cancer diagnosis. This year, they released a Spring Beauty Box, which I’m including on this list as the perfect Mother’s Day gift! Not only is it filled with great products, but 100% of the net proceeds go toward individuals facing cancer. We love a gift that makes you look great and gives back!

Or maybe the best Mother’s Day gift for the mom in your life is simply flowers! Green Hydrangea Flowers has some of the most beautiful arrangements and flower subscription plans. They also offer a flower arranging workshop in their Flower Lab in DC. It sounds like a fun mom’s day out to me!

Gifts for the Fashionable Mom

I was recently featured in The Wall Street Journal’s article, The Best Luxury Gifts for Women for Milestone Occasions, in which I praised this YSL Uptown Clutch. It is the absolute best black evening clutch and the only one you’ll ever need. Perfectly packable and classy, I can’t recommend this enough as both a luxurious and useful Mother’s Day gift!

One of my favorite pieces in our Mother’s Day gift guide this year is the Liberty 9ct Gold Rainbow Gemstone Ring. I’ve been looking for the perfect rainbow ring for years, and this may be it! With its multicolored gemstones, this ring is easy, fun, and goes with everything!
