What Moms Really Want For Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s perfect time to shop for that #1 Mom in your life (before you find yourself wandering the aisles of Walgreens wishing you’d ordered something sooner..)! For all the costly toys, loads of laundry, home-cooked meals, and awkward conversations throughout the years, we want to say, “Thanks, Mom!” Make this year the best one yet—skip the bouquet of flowers and cliche box of chocolates, and get her something that she really wants. Not sure what that is? We’ve made an official Mother’s Day Gift Guide full of things that sure to please any mom.

Driftwood + Lavender Chamomile Candles, Tiny Collection.

Candles are always a good gift idea. These cute little guys pack a ton of scent into each tin, and last for a really long time! I’m obsessed with every scent from this shop—I want to try them all!

Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar

One of the simplest, and yet possibly best ideas, is surprising your momma with a self-serve bloody mary bar, full of all the fixin’s from bacon to cheese, shrimp and veggies. Just make sure she has no plans for the rest of the day besides relaxing (and probably napping).

Wooden Earring Holder, The Summery Umbrella.

Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings can get lost or tangled without a specified holder, so why not surprise her with an adorably chic earring holder like this one? Is she not into jewelry? This shop also offers some of the cutest, most whimsical decor items available. You’re sure to find something she’ll love.

Mini Clutch Zipper Pouch + Pure Linen Facecloths, North Forty Textiles.

Let’s be honest—women love clutches. This year, give her one with personality like this linen blue, gray, + white striped one. Add on some of these incredibly soft linen facecloths to make it a complete gift. This shop has endless color options, designs, and other linen gifts!

Roomba 880 Cleaning Robot Vacuum, iRobot.

Save her from ever having to sweep the floors again with this incredibly awesome robot that vacuums for you. It picks up debris and dust, moves from room-to-room, and even returns itself to its charger when finished! I mean, who doesn’t want a Roomba? PS. iRobot is running a Mother’s Day discount of 15% off the 800 Series Roomba, so shop quick!

Bread & Butter by Erin McKenna, Amazon.

Does she love to spend her time in the kitchen? This book is the holy grail for gluten-free baking and can help kick-start a healthier lifestyle. The author owns one of the most popular (and DELICIOUS) gluten-free, vegan bakeries of all time, so I trust her recipes to be top notch.

Wall Hang, House In The South.

Is she an artistic mama? Instead of getting her a cliche’ painting or figurine, opt for a truly dreamy, gorgeous yarn wall hanging like this one. This shop has some of the most imaginative, beautiful items available for the home.

Body Oil, Skin Owl.

Pamper her on this special day and get her something she’ll really enjoy like this silky-smooth nourishing body oil made with pure plant extracts and antioxidants that reduce the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, and dark spots. We’re obsessed with it and want to try more of their products!

Beaching It Up Doormat, Uncommon Doormats.

Mother’s Day gifts don’t always have to be sentimental. Opt for something fun and quirky like this doormat that ensures a good time is to be had inside. This doormat brand offers TONS of diverse options for finding the perfect mat to match any personality.

Crowley x UO Turntable, Urban Outfitters.

For the music-loving momma, we have the perfect idea. Crosley is KING when it comes to turntables and we all know that music is good for the soul, so why not give her the gift of music this Mother’s Day? You can throw in a few of her favorite vinyls to make it a complete gift.

Gift Card, Massage Envy.

For all that she does for everyone else, mom’s special day should include some serious pampering and relaxation. Get her the gift of massage with a pre-paid card to a spa for a facial, full-body massage, or both! Make it extra special with a little bottle of bubbly for her to sip afterwards.

Mother’s Day Tin, LUSH Cosmetics.

Warning: Only give this to your mom if you want to win Favorite Child award. LUSH is the place the go to for anything beauty, pampering, and skincare. This kit contains 7 unique, amazingly-scented, nourishing bath bombs that are sure to make a perfect gift.

Home Is Where The Pants Aren’t Print, Brittany Garner Design.

It’s the little things that mean the most. If your mom has a favorite quote or phrase that describes her, make it into a print like this awesome gold foiled one that will make her smile every time she sees it. This shop has tons of other fun options.

Striped Linen Flax Towels + Natural Linen Pillowcases, Linen For Home.

Sometimes the perfect gift is a practical one—something that you know mom will love and get use out of, like these gorgeous well-made linen hand towels and pillowcases. The colors are rich, materials are top-quality, and they last forever! We love everything this shop has to offer.

Black Chevron + Red Plus Pillows, ILovePillow.

Is your Mom always on the go, and never get a break? Get her some adorably printed pillows and designate the day to her “relaxation day” whether that means rest on them with a movie or straight up taking a nap—her choice!
