he perfect Mother’s Day gifts come in twos
We’ve all had this dilemma year after year: What to gift mom on Mother’s Day? Since we consider her as the most important woman in our life, we only want the best for our main lady (or to give her the world even) when her special day comes around.
This Mother’s Day, we’re making the gift-giving process much easier with 20 unique, thoughtful, and practical presents tailored for the varied roles that each of our mothers passionately play – cherry-picked with twice the love. You’re welcome.
For the woman who loves keeping tabs with her brood and just can’t resist capturing candid moments at every family gathering, surprise her with tech treats: the iPhone 7 Plus (Product) RED from Power Mac Center (every purchase of this bright red iPhone contributes to the Global Fund support for HIV/AIDS world programs) and Fujifilm’s latest hybrid Instax Square SQ10, which lets you take images in a stylish square format (hello, Instagram!).
For the woman whose sophistication and elegance you truly admire and would love to inherit someday, offer her gifts of luxury: a pair of solid gold drop earrings from Karat World and a Neely Three-hand Gold-tone Stainless Steel timepiece from Fossil.
For the woman who loves shopping and dressing up and is unafraid to sample upcoming fashion trends, gift her a pair of softly-hued mid-heel mules and an embroidered leather clutch from Mango.
For the woman who believes skincare is a sound investment and values beauty pick-me-uppers like no other, present her with a care package (because she deserves it!): a jar of Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream and a bottle of Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate from Kiehl’s.
For the SuperMom who works ‘round the clock to manage your lovely home and effortlessly takes care of the family’s needs, the much-needed gift of respite is a must. Wrap this Nectarine Blossom & Honey Home Candle and these satiny soaps with Shea butter in Pomegranate Noir and Blackberry & Bay for mom. Both from Jo Malone, these opulent gifts will lift her spirits after a tiresome day.
For the woman whose enviable planning and organizational skills spell #girlboss, a stylish pen-and-paper combo is all she needs to rule and conquer. Get her Moleskine’s 12-month Planner Daily Pocket in Scarlet Red Soft Cover and this refillable LAMY Lx Rosegold Ballpoint Pen from National Book Store.
For the woman who first taught you how to use (and play around) with crayons and paints and introduced you to the discographies of every musician and band you basically build your whole playlist around, return the favor and say thanks with a set of Taschen art books on 20th-century modern art, Alphonse Mucha, and Sandro Botticelli from Fully Booked and this blue-hued La La Land vinyl record from Satchmi.
For the woman whose energy rivals your own and who stops at nothing to achieve both her personal and professional goals, treat her to a bag of rich, whole bean Espresso Roast to further fuel her passions. Box it with a vintage-looking Espresso Maker from Starbucks –your mom will thank you for it.
For the woman who likes to keep it casual and carefree, give her gifts of comfort: a pair of Keds Metallic Champion in Rose Gold that’ll put a spring to her step and this Nova Duffle from Herschel for weekenders with dad.
For the woman who loves all things weird and wonderful, eccentric and conversation pieces for her space are totally encouraged. Get her a matching Tomato Sauce trash bin (that doesn’t look eeky) and knife holder from Quirks Novelties & Curiosities.
