Shopping for Mother's Day is hard—after all, what do you get the woman who literally does everything, from getting the kids to school on time to making sure the refrigerator is always stocked to being the best shoulder to cry on. While there's no one product that can truly equate to the value of a mom, there are some that are better than others (i.e. some that she'll actually use and enjoy).
To help you pick the perfect present, Nordstrom recently launched its Mother's Day gift shop online. Below are the 10 best gifts you can buy from Nordstrom, including the Barefoot Dreams cardigan everyone is talking about and the trendiest wine tumbler.
1. This cult-favorite candle
There's a reason the Capri Blue candle consistently appears on our lists of best gifts time after time. Not only is it stunning (it will look gorgeous on any mama's coffee table) but it also comes in a wide variety of delicious scents that strike the perfect balance of subtle yet fragrant. The candles are long-lasting, too—even the mini version can burn for 25 straight hours.
2. These silky soft pajamas
One thing most moms likely want this Mother's Day? More sleep. Help her drift off to dreamland in style with these top-rated pajamas from Nordstrom, which have over 1,400 glowing reviews. Shoppers love that the menswear-inspired PJs are thick enough to keep you warm yet lightweight enough to be worn year-round. And while they feel like satiny silk, they're actually made of cotton so they hold up well in the wash over time.
3. This personalized pendant necklace
Monograms make any gift feel 100 times more personal—which is why this pretty pendant necklace from Kate Spade is at the top of Nordstrom's Mother's Day gift list. People who have bought it like that the dainty necklace is elegant and timeless that it even has "one in a million" engraved on the back of the pendant to remind Mom just how special she really is.
4. This cardigan everyone is obsessed with
"A comfortable blanket disguised as clothing." That's how our director of shopping content (and Nordstrom guru), Samantha Matt, describes this popular cardigan, which she personally owns. And over 3,000 other shoppers agree. Based on the glowing reviews, Mom will love that the knit top looks as good as it feels (so she can wear it both at home and in public) and that it's very well-made (so she won't feel bad wearing it all day every day).
5. This celebrity-approved tote
Fact: Meghan Markle is one of the most stylish moms out there. Take a page out of her book—or rather a piece out of her closet—with this coveted Madewell tote, which she's been spotted carrying. One of our staff members owns it, too, and raves that it's the perfect size for carrying all of her things. She also likes that the stylish tote has a zip top, making it ideal for travel or commuting.
6. These leggings with over 6,000 reviews
I love my Lululemons as much as the next person (I am a yoga teacher, after all) but I don't always love spending $100+ on them. Enter these Zella leggings, which are wildly popular at Nordstrom for being both comfortable and flattering (hello, high-waisted fit!). The mamas in your life will love that, as the name suggests, they can live in them—reviewers say the leggings are perfect to wear for anything from working out to running errands.
7. These boozy candies
For the mom who lives for Sunday brunch, satisfy her craving for bottomless mimosas with these Sugarfina gummy bears, which are infused with French champagne. In shades of blush and coral—and costing less than $10–they make for an adorable yet inexpensive gift. (One Reviewed staff member gave them out at her wedding and says they were a hit all around!)
8. The coziest throw blanket
There are some things Mom can't get enough of—like peace and quiet, sleep, and throw blankets. While you may not be able to help her accomplish the first two, you can get her the latter thanks to this plush throw (which is one of the most popular things our readers bought from Nordstrom last year). Not only does it have over 1,600 rave reviews, but many shoppers say they love the blanket so much that they've bought it in multiple colors. One woman even admits she's bought 11 (!!) of them.
9. This trendy wine tumbler
Wine glasses are great. Wine glasses you can take on the go are even better—especially for busy mamas. These stylish ones from beloved water bottle brand Corkcicle are highly-rated for being durable (they're made of thick stainless steel) and for keeping drinks—like her favorite chilled rose—cold for hours. Bonus: It's heat-resistant, too, so she can also use it as a coffee cup in the mornings.
10. Our favorite Dutch oven
Every home chef—including your Food Network-obsessed mama—needs a solid Dutch oven. Of all the ones we've tested here at Reviewed, we found this Staub cast iron cocotte to be the best (yes, even better than Le Creuset). Whether she's braising meat or whipping up a hearty stew, the Staub cooks food evenly and efficiently and, with its streamlined shape, fits neatly both on the stove and in the cabinet.
