Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021
You probably couldn’t get together for last Mother’s Day but that might not be the case this year thanks to the vaccines. That means you’ll be able to give your mom or mother figure a gift in person this year on May 9th. Many mothers have been isolated at home while others have been juggling working from home with cooking, cleaning, homeschooling, and more while trying not to loose their mind. You owe her so here are some gift ideas to get you started on your shopping.
Obviously, the Queen has been in the news recently due to the death of Prince Phillip and her birthday today. The Last Queen: Elizabeth II’s Seventy Year Battle to Save the House of Windsor just came out in January so it would make a great gift for a British mum or royal watcher.
I am asked about the pearl drop earrings I bought in Florence every time I post myself wearing them. If I didn’t have them, I would buy these 14-karat gold, pearl and diamond earrings and I bet the mom in your life would love them too.
I could see a young Queen Elizabeth wearing this tile and floral-print cotton dress but it would be great for anyone celebrating Mother’s Day.
A mother of any age would love this wicker handbag.
Treat mom to a fancy breakfast in bed on this blue Breakfast Tray. It folds down for easy storage.
Add one of these Hand Embroidered Daisy Napkins to the try or the breakfast table on Mother’s Day.
I love this new sage color of Staub enamel coated cookware but there are twelve colors to choose from for your mom.
I’m sure everyone could use some new pajamas by this point in the pandemic and I love these chic floral-print organic-cotton pajamas for all moms.
Has your British mum not been able to travel back to the UK? Why not gift her this Fortnum & Mason Superb Hamper and take her on a picnic.
Could your mom use a new jacket to wear on her daily walks? I love the pale green color of this Tea Dye Parka.
Whether your mom is dreaming of a vacation or a vacation home, she’ll love this new book Island Whimsy: Designing a Paradise by the Sea by Celerie Kemble.
Does your mom need a chicer pair of reading glasses? Try these Reading Glasses that come in 11 different colors and six different levels of magnification. Also available are progressive glasses and blue light blocking glasses for Zoom fatigue.
If your mom could use a new bag for spring and summer, this Gardner Tote is perfect.
The mom who spends all summer at the pool or beach would appreciate these Waterproof Birkenstock Sandals. These often sell out early so you can find different colored options here, here, and here.
Is your mom still using a hand mixer or is her old stand mixer older than you are? Treat her with a new KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer that is available in 13 chic colors.
Does your mom like wine? Upgrade her wine glasses to a set of these two Selma Wine Glasses.
Is the mom in your life at the end of her rope, gift her Lord Jones High CBD Formula Bath Salts and offer to babysit so she can soak her stress away.
If your mom or sister is planning to start hosting again, give her a copy of Entertaining Beautifully by Aerin Lauder.
If your mom prefers nightgowns to pajamas, I like this Cotton Victorian Sleeveless Nightgown that’s available in five different colors and patterns at a great price.
Everyone’s skin seems to be going haywire lately so the mom in your life would definitely appreciate this Dr. Barbara Sturm Flight Essentials Travel Size Set. It’s also great if she’s going to be taking a flight for the first time in a year.
Lady in Waiting: My Extraordinary Life in the Shadow of the Crown has almost 12,000 reviews online so it’s clearly a popular book that would make a great gift.
This gold-plated pearl necklace is another great gift for moms of all ages.
Package the necklace or any jewelry gift in this chic gold Aerin Jewelry Box.
As I always say, if you give an ephemeral gift like flowers, it’s nice to include something that the recipient will have after they are gone like this Carmo Vase.
The mother who hasn’t worn makeup in a year could use this Westman Atelier Le Box to help her transition back to the office.
The mom who hates color is the perfect person to gift this chic Ultra Fine Cashmere Tank Dress. Include the Ultra Fine Cashmere Cardigan if you’ve really been bad this year.
Plan a picnic for Mother’s Day and then send your mom home with this pretty Rainbow Picnic Blanket after it’s over.
If your mom could use an upgrade from her Vera Bradley bag, I love this Large Quilted Tote.
