Mom: the woman who has had your back for years but claims she doesn’t need anything on Mother’s Day. This year, we’ll help you do better than a simple card and give you thoughtful gift ideas that show her how much she is appreciated. Whether she’s a traveler, Wine Queen, or essential oil enthusiast, you’re guaranteed to surprise her with one of these options. Read on for our Mother’s Day gift ideas for every supermom on your list.
1. Keep It Cool
This Kato Insulated Wine Tote carries two bottles and also keeps them cold and separated so they don’t clink or shatter. There’s no better way for mom to bring wine to picnics and parties. She’ll love the adjustable padded shoulder strap, and the sturdy buckle will keep the bottles safe. It comes in four colors so you can choose the right style for her. Pro-tip: While you’re at it, buy a couple of bottles so she can enjoy it right away.
2. Be Cheesy
She’ll love this “cheesy” gift, especially when you break out the cheddar and brie! The Vina Bamboo Cheese Board with Knife Set is the perfect gift for the hostess with the most. Mom will appreciate the slide-out drawer that handily stores four cheese knives for easy storage and maximum portability. Not only is bamboo sustainable, but it also features a non-toxic finish and resists warping, making this a gift she can use for years to come.
Mom’s are always on the go, so anything that helps streamline and organize will be appreciated. Is she always digging in her purse trying to find that elusive item that fell to the bottom? This sleek, stylish smartphone wallet will keep her organized, so she always has what she needs at her fingertips. She can easily hold all her cash, cards, and phone in one beautiful clutch-sized wallet, earning back those precious moments spent digging in her bag.
4. Travel Smart
Whether she is a jetsetter or just travels to see loved ones, she will appreciate a durable travel bag that can store toiletries and cosmetics for weekends away. Not a traveler? No problem. It’s great for storage at home, coming in eight colors to match any style. Throw in a few face masks and hand cream for a mini-spa themed gift!
Motherhood is no easy task, and it is often difficult to convince mom to sit down and relax. An aromatherapy diffuser is a perfect way to help her unwind by harnessing the soothing, balancing power of essential oils. The flower-shaped design and beautiful wood grain make it an attractive piece of decor that is also functional. It isn’t just a diffuser; it is an air purifier, ionizer, humidifier, and night light with six color options. Rose, vanilla, lavender, and citrus essential oils are known for their relaxing properties. Include a couple of oils so she can start de-stressing right away. Trust us—she’ll thank you later!
Go above and beyond the usual flower and card and buy a live plant. Succulents and air plants are low-maintenance plants that will stay beautiful and green year-round with relatively little care. Place it in this eye-catching hanging vase for a gift she can enjoy for years to come.
After everything your mom has done for you she deserves to be treated. These Mother’s day gift ideas are the perfect way to make her feel loved and appreciated on her special day!
