Mother’s Day somehow always sneaks up on us. We’ve all been there — scrambling at the very last second to pick out the perfect gift and find the best card. Well, you don’t have to be that child anymore. Your mom is a literal superhero and deserves much more than a bar of overpriced soap and dollar store greeting card. Treat her to the extravagance and attention she very much deserves. These gifts are not only thoughtful but they’ll allow her to feel special and appreciated — as she should all the time!
Wondering what to spring for this Mother’s Day? Keep reading for the ultimate gift guide with options for whatever Mom is into!
For the Fashion Plate:
Everyone your momma loves a bit of bling so treat her to a gorgeous set of earrings that will go with anything in her closet. These Mejuri earrings are made with 18K gold and organic freshwater pearls that are each one-of-a-kind, just like mom!
Every mom needs a solid carry-all bag and this tote is perfect as it’s trendy, chic, and functional. Your mom deserves the best quality and you can’t really get any better than Calvin, right?
These may seem a little kitschy to some, but these Saint Laurent sunnies are fun, whimsical, and perfect for any mom who’s young at heart. These cat eye-style frames look so chic and add a little extra oomph to even the simplest of outfits.
Now I know you’re probably thinking how weird it is to buy a bra for your mom on Mother’s Day, but hear me out. You want your mom to look her best, right? Well, it all starts with finding not only the perfect bra but also the perfect bra size. I think treating mom to a great fitting bra is the way to go. Plus, you know it’s a gift she’ll use frequently, right?
For The Beauty Queen:
Everyone deserves fabulous, glowy skin and that definitely includes your mom. Splurge a little on some quality skincare products to help her attain skin as sparkly as she is. This kit by Tata Harper is certified clean and so there aren’t any synthetic chemicals or nasties to worry about. Plus, this curated kit targets visible signs of aging for younger looking skin!
Help mom kick start her summer glow with a little help from these James Read tanning drops. This product works with your other skincare products to help develop a natural sunkissed glow. With ingredients like hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, mom’s skin will be super moisturized which ensures an even tan!
I know moms are always short on time but self-care is so important. This dual-action jade face roller by Province Apothecary is unique because one side is smooth and the other is textured. The textured side helps stimulate circulation while the smooth end instantly calms and cools the skin. Using a jade roller may seem a little extra but it’s five minutes of peace and quiet that mom is sure to appreciate!
Your mom deserves to feel like the queen she is, right? Send her off to Her Majesty’s Pleasure in TO for an afternoon of cocktails and the ultimate in relaxation and indulgence. HMP’s gel manicures are top of the line and if your mom is super cool, then why not throw in some funky nail art, too?
For The Homebody:
Everyone loves to cozy up with a good book so let mom indulge in Michelle Obama’s bestselling memoir, Becoming. Michelle’s book invites readers into her world and tells stories of all the experiences that helped shape her into the woman she is today. Sound familiar? It’s like how your mom helped shape you into who you are!
Anthropologie Bauble Bud Vases, $10 – $16
I’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t appreciate gorgeous cut flowers, especially in the springtime. If you stop and pick up a bouquet of fresh flowers, make sure you have a unique and special vase to place them in. These vases from Anthropologie are so modern and chic. You know they’ll have pride of place wherever mom puts them!
Even though spring has sprung, once the sun goes down it gets super chilly. Make sure mom stays extra cozy with a snuggly blanket. This option from Drake General Store is so fun with the tie-dye design and the boho feel is so trendy right now, too!
Envelope your space in the rich and gorgeous scent that’s Jo Malone’s Pomegranate Noir. With notes of pink pepper and Casablanca lily, this diffuser effortlessly adds an understated scent that is so pleasing and inviting. I know it’s a bit steep in price but trust me, your momma will thank you!
For The Foodie:
If your mom isn’t familiar with Chrissy Teigen, then introduce her real quick. While Chrissy is a model and wife to singer John Legend, this fierce mom is also a superstar in the kitchen. Chrissy’s unique recipes are SO delicious and more importantly, easy to follow. I’ve made a handful of dishes from both her cookbooks and you won’t be disappointed!
For anyone who likes to cook, it’s important to have the right equipment. Upgrade your moms arsenal of cookware with Staub’s cast iron braiser. It’s so functional that mom will want to use it for everything she makes. Not only that but because it’s so beautiful, it will probably get its own spot on the counter, too!

For $85 per person, sip on delicious cocktails (your first one’s free!), indulge in the unlimited raw bar, and eat to your hearts content. This is sure to be a Mother’s Day for the record books!
