Mother’s Day comes but once a year, and while mom will probably be happy with a card and a hug, there are so many other ways to say thank you for the countless things she does for us all year. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the macaroni-noodle-necklace, but I don’t think I’d mind getting any of the fab gifts below (hint hint!).
1. The Gift of Scent
Essential oils can improve sleep, brighten mood and boost energy. This wood grain style vessel uses ultrasonic vibrations to diffuse essential oils and LED lights to put mom in relax mode.
2. The Gift of Flowers
Flowers are a Mother’s Day stand-by, but when they’re farm-fresh, beautifully packaged and not-at-all-cheesy, they’re elevated to special status. Order these online from photos and know exactly what mom’s getting.
3. The Gift of Protection
Now mom really has eyes in the back of her head: This indoor camera can help her keep tabs on home when she’s away (and 2-way audio means she can tell you to tidy up and take out the garbage).
4. The Gift of a Comfort
“I don’t need new pyjamas,” said no mom ever. This pair from Everlane are crisp and classic.
5. The Gift of Memories
Mom’s the Household Historian, so this portable printer that makes mementos out of her iPhoneography is sure to please.
6. The Gift of Style
Subtlely-hued leather pouches, perfect for toting lip balm, band-aids, pens, and all those other sundry items that moms always have on hand.
7. The Gift of Li'l Treats
Good things (like cozy socks or chocolate!) come in small packages: Choose a small gift, add some family photos to the customized box, and send off something thoughtful.
8. The Gift of Technology
MIXIT boosts mom’s devices when she’s on the go, and acts as a stylish tassel in between charges.
9. The Gift of Cooking
Mom can channel her inner Iron Chef with this sous vide tool, that brings precision control to
The home cook. (Bonus: Tonight’s dinner is gonna rock.)
10. The Gift of Beauty
Natural beauty brand Ilia bundles three of their best selling lipsticks in a limited-edition leather pouch from collab partner Baggu. No gift wrap required.
11. The Gift of Elegance
Curator of simple closet staples, this multitasking silk scarf can adorn mom’s neck, head, wrist, or purse strap.
12. The Gift of Chic
Moms of any age will love these specs in this season’s inescapable hue—millennial pink.
13. The Gift of Snapshots
For special moments when a smartphone camera won’t cut it— the Elph has plenty of zoom, HD video and lots of pocket-sized camera power.
14. The Gift of Purity
A simple and beautifully-designed way to keep mom hydrated, this pitcher uses BPA-free plastic and plant-based filters.
15. The Gift of Clarity
A sonic precision cleanser made of ultra-hygenic silicone that’s the fits in the palm of your hand and is the route to clearer, cleaner skin. In cheery yellow, it’s the perfect addition to mom’s morning routine.
16. The Gift of Health
Healthy (and QUICK!) weeknight dinners are a cinch with an electric spiralizer. Think zucchini noodles, carrot ribbons and sweet potato curly fries at the touch of a button.
17. The Gift of Creativity
When inspiration strikes, or for making those epic mom to-do lists: This notepad and pen magically sends everything written to an app on mom’s smartphone.
18. The Gift of Preservation
If mom’s big on Instagram, she’ll love flipping through all the family photos in this beautifully crafted square photo book.
19. The Gift of Awesome
Now mom can let everyone know where she got her good looks (and great organization skills).
