With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it’s easy to rely on the same old tradition of giving cards, flowers, or chocolate to all the special moms in your life. This year, take a unique approach and show them how much you care by speaking to their personality: a personalized water bottle for the athletic mom, a copper mug for the outdoorsy type, or a cookie-inspired hairbrush all round out a list of the best gifts for a personal and very special celebration of motherhood.
Forget flowers or store-bought chocolate. Buzz + Bloom’s Organic Non-GMO Honey and Raw & Unfiltered Honey give you the best of both worlds: floral notes of sweetness that remind one of a warm, spring day. Use it to dress a cheese plate to share or sweeten a cup of hot tea for the perfect, at-home Mother’s Day get-together.
Hope & Harmony Farm’s Habanero Peanuts are the perfect way to treat your mom to some tasty and very spicy treats. These cooked by hand, all-natural spiced peanuts will be hard to put down—just make sure you’ve got a fire extinguisher close by because these peanuts will set your mouth ablaze!
Breakfast in bed is a timeless gesture of love, so go ahead and kick it up a notch by making heart-shaped waffles for your favorite mom with the CucinaPro Classic Heart Waffler. The nonstick grid makes for an easy cleanup while the adjustable browning control cooks your waffles perfectly. Top with strawberries and whipped cream to create the perfect Mother’s Day morning.
A memorable way to spend time with your mom is in the great outdoors: roasting marshmallows next to a fire, gazing at the stars, and going on nature hikes. This year, get your mother a mug or tumbler such as the Look Up Copper Mug or To The Woods Copper Tumbler for your next adventure.
Bring the beauty of Paris, the City of Lights, to your Mother’s Day by getting your mom a macaron-inspired brush from Milk and Sass. Their Macaron for Hair will tame, smooth, and shine hair, leaving it silky, velvety, and tangle-free. Its clever cover also doubles as a mirror and brush protector so you will never have to worry about broken bristles again.
Currently available in ten states, this coffee is the perfect match for those heart-shaped waffles you’ll make for breakfast in bed. Made with a unique blend of 100% Arabica beans, roasted to a perfect medium roast, and infused authentic Jack Daniel’s whiskey, this Mother’s Day gift is a perfect drink for cozy Saturday mornings or as a cap to a gourmet dinner.
Debonair and classic, taking whiskey neat is the ideal way to enjoy the smoky nectar of the gods. BOS Drinkware’s Balls of Steel is the perfect way to chill whiskey or scotch without watering down and muddling the flavor. If white wine is the first choice, their Napa Wine Chiller is the perfect way to cool down a glass without losing taste. Another great gift is their coaster, which doubles as a bottle opener: respect your wooden table while never having to dig through drawers again.
This Mother’s Day, hit your gift-giving sweet spot with Ne-Mo’s Red Velvet Cake Square, a decadent treat filled with home-baked goodness in every bite. The secret to its rich flavor is a made-from-scratch family recipe and fresh, wholesome ingredients like ranch fresh eggs and a creamy layer of icing. Each cake square is individually portioned, which makes it the perfect dessert to take on the go.
Why settle for a box of chocolates when you can indulge your mom’s sweet tooth with a Candy Box or Bouquet of Marshmallows from XO Marshmallow? Flavors include red wine dipped in dark chocolate, champagne dipped in white chocolate, and Nutella dipped in milk chocolate: this will be a present that you may even get for yourself.
Lightweight and compact, BPA- and plastic-free, the Que Bottle is the perfect gift for the mom that loves to work out. Designed to reduce plastic waste, these are the only reusable water bottles on the market that are collapsible. They are also functional and fashionable to boot. Available in a variety of colors, these water bottles are made from food-grade silicon, making them suitable for both hot and cold beverages, plus they are dishwasher safe.
Nothing is more wholesome than the perfect picnic in the park, especially with the sleek and streamlined bento box from Mercier. Your mom will fall for its design but will truly love its leak-proof, dual layer functionality, which keeps food fresher for longer. BPA-free, microwave safe, and easy to clean, this gift is the perfect way to take a delicious meal to go.
Some of us are always on the go and cannot wait around for breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. This is why the Bodum Travel Tea and Coffee Press is the perfect gift for the type-a mom who needs a recharge before rushing out the door for work. Make your favorite hot drink in the container and when it is done seeping or extracting, simply push down the plunger for the perfect hot beverage. The vacuum-sealed and double-wall construction keeps your drink hot or cold for several hours.
Sometimes, we need to have wine on us at all times. That’s where Wine Enthusiast’s tote bag comes in. Made with well-constructed handles and an adjustable shoulder strap, this bag is made from durable black nylon. This satchel can carry up to three bottles at a time but is best suited for one bottle of wine and two glasses for you and your mom. Take this along with your new bento box to the park and enjoy a memorable meal at sunset.
This year, make your mom feel extra special with a variety of unexpected gifts that she’ll love and cherish.
