Every year leading up to the second Sunday in May, people search everywhere for gifts for Mother’s Day, one of the most popular holidays of the year. People scramble to find—or make—gifts for the women in their lives who they adore so much. You may be wondering what to gift your mom or mother figure this year. Whether you are shopping for Mother’s Day, her birthday, or just for a surprise, the suggested gifts below are fit for any day of the year, no matter the occasion.
An obvious always-in-style gift to give your mom is a plush robe she can wear during a laid-back day at home. If anyone deserves a relaxing self-care day, it’s mom! Consider a fleece or chic silk robe and match the robe with monogrammed slippers she can slide right into after a long day of work or running errands around town. For an extra-special touch, add her initials to the robe.
Make Mother’s Day, or any day, memorable by matching mom’s cozy robe with self-care items, such as an essential oil diffuser, foot massager, or candles. Create a soothing playlist for her to listen to on her favorite device to set the mood. For something a bit different, toss in an adult coloring book she can carry with her anywhere for those times she just needs a break from the real world. If she’s more of a writer, purchase a wellness journal for her to write down her thoughts.
You can’t go wrong with a super-soft blanket mom will want to snuggle underneath all day long—and all through the night. You have plenty of types of blankets to choose from, such as a plush fleece, weighted, or heated blanket. A personalized fleece throw will have her thinking sweet thoughts of you. Match her blanket with a patterned or solid pillow so she can get extra comfortable.
If she loves to sip coffee or tea when relaxing, she would love a ceramic mug with a sentimental message or a quirky design. Really make her smile by tossing in that book she has been dying to purchase so she will have something new to read on a laid-back Sunday afternoon.
Want your mom to feel extra relaxed this Mother’s Day? Give her a chic loungewear set she can wear all day! What’s her favorite color, style, or fabric? You have plenty of options when shopping for her new around-the-house apparel, but make sure you know exactly what she wants. Popular patterns and prints include plaid, floral, polka dots, stripes, and paisley. She would feel extra luxe in silk or satin loungewear!
If your mom is an active lady, perhaps purchase activewear instead. Leggings are always popular and can fit into any active lifestyle—whether she loves to take brisk walks around the neighborhood, practice her poses in her yoga studio, or plant flowers in her garden. If she loves a good outdoor adventure, consider matching her bottoms with stylish sneakers that can stand up to any terrain. Make sure those kicks have optimal cushioning—your mom will thank you!
Similar to women’s loungewear, you have plenty of pajama styles, fabric types, and prints to choose from when shopping for mom. Whatever you choose, make sure they are so cozy she will want to wear them all day. Match her new PJs with a silk sleep mask so she can have the best sleep yet!
If your mom loves a beautifully coordinated, decorated bedroom, you should consider giving her updated bed sheets. You have plenty of choices when purchasing new bedding—and the right fabric for her skin will really aid her sleep. Pima cotton, Egyptian cotton, silk, and bamboo are wonderful fabric choices for a good night’s sleep. Plus, these lightweight, smooth, and breathable fabric types will keep her from scratching and restlessness.
Make her Mother’s Day special with a bed tray for breakfast in bed. Cook her just what she likes for breakfast for a relaxing day spent in bed—this will definitely warm her heart!
Finally, if your mom is always on the go traveling for business or heading to a new country on her list, give her a handy travel pillow to ensure her travels are extra comfortable. If your mom loves to hit the road, she might already own a couple of cushions for her neck, but she could probably use a new one. Pair her travel pillow with a glass or metal personalized water bottle. Or purchase a chic leather or canvas travel bag for all her must-have travel accessories.
We certainly love our moms. They do so much for us, no matter what. Show your mom or mother figure how much she means to you any time of the year with a cozy, cute gift she will cherish for a long time. Make sure to include a sweet message with your gift that will put a smile on her face.
