Mother’s Day is almost upon us, friends!
As with all holidays, it goes without saying that Mother’s Day isn’t about presents. It also goes without saying that presents are AWESOME.
Hugs, breakfast in bed, and coupons for a 5 minute back rub (I stand by the latter being a very thoughtful, definitely not lazy gift) are excellent gifts, but should you choose to employ a purchased present as part of your strategy to shower the moms in your life with love, I’ve got your back.
Below you’ll find a variety of fabulous Mother’s Day gift options at all price points. In an effort to help do a little good with our shopping this year, all of the items below are sourced from Domesticate Me’s Small Business Community. (Many of these small businesses have been kind enough to offer you a discount and/or are donating a portion of their sales to various charities.)
Domesticate Me’s 2020 Mother’s Day Gift Guide:

2. Coley Home Cotton Robe. A robe upgrade is always a good idea. This one is cute, comfy, and comes in three extremely festive prints!
3. “Drink Responsibly, Don’t Spill it” Cocktail Napkins. If you know a mom who loves cocktails, entertaining, and a teensy bit of kitsch, these embroidered napkins will likely bring her great joy. For 20% off use code: Serena.
4. Margaux Pointe Flat. I don’t know a mom who wouldn’t appreciate an everyday flat that’s as comfortable as it is chic. (I’m serious about the comfort factor, people.) This timeless shoe comes in a variety of colors/prints/fabrics, but I’m partial to the red suede—it adds a pop of color and happiness to any outfit.
5. Christian LaCroix Frivolités Set of 2 Shaped Puzzle Set. Should your mom have a newfound (or longstanding) love of puzzling, this set includes two of the most fashionable puzzles on the block.
6. Wicklewood “The Rainbow Collection” Small Damask Cushion. For the home decor lovers! This unique printed cushion is guaranteed to brighten any room. It’s part of “The Rainbow Collection”—a capsule line up of six cushions, each trimmed in a variety of colored tassels, to represent the rainbows children across the world are placing in their windows as a symbol of hope, kindness and solidarity as we all stay at home. Wicklewood will be donating 25% of all profits from the cushions within The Rainbow Collection to the NHS Charities Together Campaign; supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for C-19 patients.
7. Good Food Cooking School. If the mom in your life lives for food, has expressed an interest in cooking classes, or simply wants to up her cooking game in any way, Good Food Cooking Basics would be the ultimate way to show her some love. This 12-week online course teaches essential basic cooking skills to all eaters who want to add more plant-based meals to their day (whether you love burgers or broccoli). The course is built on an amazing platform that includes a comprehensive take-it-shopping-with-you Ingredient Index, a customizable Recipe Index, and tips with every recipe for batch cooking, zero food waste, ingredient substitutions, omnivore suggestions, variations, cooking tips, and more so the student can get cooking with what they have.

11. Rigby Home Pasta Bowl Set. I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but bowls are the new plates! These shallow stoneware bowls are great for pasta, yes, but they’re also the idea serving vessel for everything from soups and salads to grain bowls. The minimal design and color options make them universally chic and amenable to a variety of home aesthetics. (That last sentence sounds very fancy, and I’m proud of it.)
