Buying for your Mom, Grandmother or Aunt can sometimes be difficult, especially if she has everything or won’t tell you precisely what she wants. Most of us fall back on traditional gifts like cards, flowers, and chocolate last minute. Although these gifts are still great options for Mother’s Day, these other excellent gift options (and retailers) will bring a smile to your Mom’s face.
The Bouqs Company: Flowers and Subscription
You can’t go wrong buying your Mom flowers for Mother’s Day! In fact, Mother’s Day flower delivery from Bouqs is fast yet delicate. You won’t have to worry about your florals wilting before reaching Mom! Choose from a classic rose bouquet, like the Mother’s Day Roses, or pick something a bit more unique, like the Open Arms, Field of Dreams, or Queen Bee!
Sips By: Monthly Tea Subscription
Have a Mom that loves tea, but you’re unsure what types she’s fond of? Sips By is a monthly tea subscription box that arrives every month and includes 4 premium teas that can make up to 16+ cups (or 48+ if re-steeped). All of their filters are biodegradable. Gifting the joy of tea can be incredibly rewarding because your Mom will think of you every time she enjoys a cup-a!
Etsy: Assortment (Soaps and Shirts)
Etsy is an e-commerce marketplace that features creatives from all over the world, but if too much choice can cripple you, we’ll narrow down some shops your Mom is sure to like. At The Bee & Fox, t-shirts are their jam, so check out their “Motherlode Collection” for Mama-specific shirts. Or choose Journee Naturelle for their incredible French Vanilla Whipped Body Butter.
Sephora: Makeup and Skincare
At Sephora, you’ll find a selection of makeup and skincare products ranging from expensive to cheap. One of their stocked brands, Anastasia Beverly Hills, is cruelty-free and mostly vegan. Their Norvina Eyeshadow Palette contains 14 whimsical shades from bold mattes to bright shimmers. If you’re stuck on what to buy, purchase a $50 or $100 gift card instead.
Uncommon Goods: Assortment (Use the Gift Finder Option)
Uncommon Goods stays true to its namesake by offering bizarre yet interesting items for a low price (sometimes with next-day shipping). Stock changes often at Uncommon Goods, so it’s difficult for us to choose a specific gift, but that’s what their “Gift Finder” option is for. Choose who you’re shopping for and what type of things they’re into to see a list of suggestions.
Mejuri: Jewelry and Accessories
Mejuri prides itself in being “The New Luxury” brand that’s designed for the golden days ahead. Their fair pricing and high-quality materials make them worthy of mention and praise. Search their “Most Gifted for Her” options to find incredible pieces like 14K Yellow Gold Bold Hoops and an Essential Pearl Necklace. Most of their jewelry is priced around $200.
Winc: Wine Subscription
Ask yourself this question: Who doesn’t like wine? Your Mom may enjoy a glass or two for a special occasion, but there’s no harm indulging every now and then. To discover the wine of your Mother’s dreams, ask her to take a one-minute quiz, and 4 bottles will be delivered each month based on her preference. With over 5 million positive reviews, you can’t go wrong.
Blooming Dales: Assortment (Kitchen Supplies)
Blooming Dales stocks a wide variety of products, but their KitchenAid kitchen supplies are what we’re after. Your Mother may or may not like to cook, but using the right equipment can make a fun hobby or a boring necessity more exciting and manageable. For example, the KitchenAid Classic Series 4.5 Stand Mixer makes baking a breeze regardless of cooking level.
Nordstrom: Clothing, Shoes, and Pajamas
Brands Wit & Wisdom and Zella from Nordstrom stock incredible clothing, shoes, and pajamas. Think of some article of clothing your Mom needs or could use as a lovely gift because there is plenty to choose from here. We recommend you pick a pair of pajamas she can wear on Mother’s Day that is comfy, preferably made of silk, and perfect for lounging in.
