Standout Gifts for Mom
Unique Mother’s Day gift ideas that show you care.
Sure, you could call your tried-and-true cut florist at the last minute to deliver the same spring bouquet you get Mom each year at Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 13 this year), but this year show her she raised a creative child with these fun options:
Cosmetics Maven Mom
If your mom loves to try new cosmetic products, make sure she gets a festive, bright pink box of samples each month from Birchbox. She’ll get to try all the latest cosmetics and fragrances from brands like Kiehl’s, Jouer Anastasia and more—before she goes back to the site to pull the trigger on the full-sized cosmetics she liked the best. Gift Birchbox in 3-, 6- or 12-month increments, at $10 each month (which includes shipping).
There’s a Mother’s Day card she can read and put in a box, or the one you can literally bronze—and she can wear around her neck. This pretty envelope necklace—in an antique gold or silver finish—holds a “letter” of up to three lines that say anything you want. $89.95.
Let’s face it: New motherhood is not an especially pretty time. But you can give the new mother you know one of the prettiest accessories around, which also happens to be a new-mom necessity. This diaper bag in mauve and grey European cut velvet from Petunia Pickle Bottom’s “Cake” line is surprisingly durable. It boasts a water-resistant lining, a changing pad in an exterior pocket and lots of pockets for all the things she never knew she’d need. $349.
Modern Kitchen Goddess Mom
Design aficionado moms will love the high design-meets-functionality of the stacking rondo oil and vinegar carafes. A hip trio, the carafes’ design is actually based on the centuries-old heavy wheel-shaped weights used to press olive oil. The durable pieces are made of heavy, thermal-resistant borosilicate glass. $160.
Calypso? Tory Burch? Roberta Roller Rabbit? Heading into summer, fashion-forward moms have seen all the Harbour Island/Hamptons/St. Barths caftans on the market … or have they? Newcomer Jules Reid brings her Southern aesthetic (think Lily Pulitzer, only more sophisticated) to a line of elegant dresses, pajama pants and kurta-style tops. Our favorite of-the-moment “Beatrice mini” caftan in pink can be worn as a dress or a top. $425.
Some out-of-the-box thinking this year could help you deliver a memorable gift. After all, the moms in your life are worth it.
