For Mother’s Day, I usually get a bouquet of flowers with a card from my husband and a cute handmade something-something from my little. But what do I really want? Well, since you asked, what I really want is a weekend staycation alone. Just me, a box of wine and a strong WiFi connection to binge watch all the Netflix shows I miss, thanks to Bubble Guppies and Frozen. I want to sleep when I want, eat all my meals through room-service and not have to clean a thing.
But that’s a lofty ask, I know. So, here are a few runner-up ideas sure to make any mom smile.
Unless you are the Kanye to her Kim, it’s not usually a good idea to pick out clothes to give to that special mom in your life. Instead, give her the gift of a personal stylist with a Stitch Fix gift card.
Beauty Subscription Box
It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Being a mom is exhausting, and it’s hard to keep up with the non-essentials, like the latest beauty products. So, surprise mom with a box of beauty products each month by gifting a subscription to Ipsy or Birchbox. Here’s some of our favorites.
You can never go wrong with jewelry, especially Kendra Scott jewelry. Gift mom this stunning necklace in her birthstone or favorite color. It’s versatile enough to wear alone or layered with other necklaces, and mom can tell everyone how her favorite child gave her this necklace.
Straw Beach Bag
As a mom, you are proudest when your children are on their best behavior and excelling in life. Nothing, that is, except being the first one in your mom group to rock a new trend. Help keep mom on her fashion A-game with a straw tote – like this one or this one – for the beach or pool this summer.
Because behind every good mom is a good glass of wine… or something like that. Send mom her favorite spiked grape juice with Blue Apron Wine or Amazon Prime. Or gift her a bottle or two from the mama-inspired Speak Wines.
Make mom feel like the princess she is with a Slip silk pillowcase that will protect and hydrate her skin and hair. These pillowcases are highly rated and adored by beauty professionals and celebrities alike.
Since most moms don’t have the luxury of a personal assistant, Alexa is about as close as you can get. She’s the hardest worker and best listener in our household.
