Mother's Day is around the corner, yet again, and in case you're scratching your head and wondering what to buy this year, fear not. Whether your mom is into beauty, style, fitness, or just chilling at home, we've got you covered with Mother's Day gift ideas that won't disappoint.
When buying a gift for your mom, you not only want to consider all the things that she does in her life ATM, but all of the ways that her life could be bettered by finding the right pair of PJs, the softest robe that's ever graced her skin, a plant to take care of that reminds her of you, or a beauty product that brings on some serious joy after a year that's largely been devoid of it.
So give it a think and while you're pondering what gift feels right for mom, keep on scrolling for some smart Mother's Day gift ideas and places to start. Seriously, you got this.
If your mom is into style
This silk set can be thrown into the washing machine after wearing it. While that perk in and of itself is worthy of an ‘Add To Cart’, we’d like to add that Lunya silk is truly some of the softest and most wearable that we’ve tried.
Finally: A ‘mom short’ that’s anything butt. (!) This brand new line of Italian denim shorts from cool girl fave Aviator Nation is handmade in Los Angeles. Think of these cute cutoffs as the perfect warm weather bridge between jeans and sweats. (Seriously, they’re that soft.)
This airy sweater with cropped sleeves is the answer to the question: What should I wear today? Because whether you’re on working up a sweat, whether you’re running errands, whether you’re sitting on the couch, whether you’re going out with the family to the park, or whether you’re doing literally anything else, there is nothing more comfortable and cute that Left on Friday’s do-it-all throw on. Plus, it comes in a rainbow of hues.
IYKYK: AO Eyewear is America’s oldest optical company (established in 1833!), and every single one of their pieces of eyewear is high-quality and timeless—just like mother dearest. AO’s Whitney glasses have a chic soft-but-angular shape that looks flattering on every sun-soaked face. The most important part? The Whitney’s AOLite nylon lenses, which feature 100 percent UVA/UVB protection.
We considered gatekeeping this one, but it’s too good not to share. Run—or power walk, skip, sprint, drive, galavant, and otherwise frickin’ race—to snag your mom a Sedona V-Neck before the rest of the universe discovers this utterly perfect chic-and-cozy French terry sweatshirt. Better yet, buy two…or seven.
These mid-rise leggings are all about the extra: Extra comfort, extra strength, and extra stylish for creating those do-it-all outfits mother dearest loves to live in. Functionality is the name of the game when it comes to Municipal’s gear: from the elastic-free waistband that’s smooth rather than constrictive to the soft knit fabric that gives super opaque coverage.
Your mom will love snuggling up in anything from this limited edition Mental Health Awareness Month-themed line from Boohoo in collaboration with Pantone: The collection collection combines vibrant, mood enhancing colors with purposeful product design. Plus, cozy summertime shorts with deep pockets are the best way to carry snacks to the couch… full stop.
If your mom is into beauty
Dr. Loretta’s seriously potent skin care is one of the best buys you can make. We like this concentrated firming serum because it has derm-approved retinol in it, which can help with cell turn over, brighten skin, and turn on the collagen pumps so that your complexion feels plumper.
Perfume is a win for moms. This one will help you to breathe in the TLC that mom showed you all those years growing up.
If your mom is into staying home
Who needs to schlep out to the coffee shop twice a day when you can make a top-notch brew in the comfort of your own kitchen? Thanks to Grounds & Hounds, your mother is about to level-up her DIY cafe au lait game like never before. (BTW, 20 percent of all Grounds & Hounds profits help fund rescue initiatives—so whether she’s a dog mom or not, even better.)
True story: I went home and brought this room spray because I have a puppy who sometimes smells like…a puppy. My mom liked it so much she stole it from me, so Happy Mother’s Day in advance, mom!
Diptyque’s City candle collection is a thoughtful way to transport your mother to her favorite place, wherever that may be (…Paris?). This New York option smells of a generous medley of cedar wood, patchouli, and vetiver, which is much better than what New York actually smells like.
She’s going to need something to sip when she slips into her comfy robe and slippers. And seeing as summer is right around the corner, that means one thing: the launch of rosé season. This gift box includes three delicious blush-toned bottles: a 2020 Chateau de Montfrin Paumiste, a 2020 Chateau Barbebelle Cuvee Madeleine Rosé, and a 2021 Origin Syrah Rosé.
This sleek countertop appliance does the job of mom’s convection oven, air fryer, slow cooker, dehydrator, toaster, grill, and pizza oven. Better yet, when she downloads the Joule app, she’ll see all of the guesswork is taken out with the step-by-step video guidance.
If your mom is into fitness
These cozy grip socks are the perfect gift for any mother that loves yoga or pilates. The natural fine cotton yarn they’re made from is as cozy and breathable as it is excellent at absorbing sweat that could cause mid-stretch slipping. They’re also decked out with elastic arch support for compression and functionality, have padded foot beds for extra cushion and comfort, and they’re machine washable.
Your mom’s a powerhouse, and her gym bag should match that vibe (…or at least try). For the ultimate do-it-all duffel, look no further than Dagne Dover’s chic carryall bags. They’re big enough to hold her workout clothes, laptop, change of shoes, weekend getaway gear—you name it—and won’t cause an ounce of that shoulder pain that so many shoulder bags are prone to.
