Our staff members have handpicked gifts they’d like to give to their mothers (or get from their kids)!
Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Staff Picks
I love flowers so my number one gift choice would be a bouquet of beautiful flowers. Just one bouquet would be lovely, but receiving fresh flowers all year round would be heaven. Bouq Co. has gorgeous bouquets, and you can send once or schedule several times during the year.
Love this wire mesh basket for gathering vegetables or fruit, either from your own garden or at the farmer’s market. You can hose them down before bringing in. No need to rinse later!
This multi-chopper is perfect for dicing up whatever you need; onions, carrots, cheese, nuts, etc., but unlike my mini chopper, the basket below separates the chopped so the pieces stay uniform in shape and don’t clump together.
My mom has a green thumb and Harry and David’s rustic herb garden is the perfect addition to her kitchen garden.
Whether used to serve single portions of a side dish or to decorate empty kitchen shelves, these mini cocottes add vibrant color and classic to the kitchen. You can take it directly from the oven to the table, and even use them for leftovers in the refrigerator.
The Revive Box by GlobeIn is a perfect gift to spoil your mom and make a difference in the world. GlobeIn offers fair trade goods and pays artisans upfront, rather than after the goods are shipped. Exclusive to PrimeWomen: use code PRIMEWOMEN for a free set of glasses with your 3-month subscription. Hurry! Supplies limited.
A pick that might be more for me than my mom (hint, hint kids), but these wide-leg pants from Yummi are so comfortable and are the ideal pants to wear if you’re working from home, running errands or just binge-watching your favorite TV series.
The Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer has replaced my round brush and hair dryer. It’s easy to use, gives me great volume, leaves my hair feeling smooth and cuts drying time in half.
I love the smell of a good strong long-lasting scent, this has always been my go-to candle.
It took me years of trial and error with fragrances to find my signature scent. I have found I enjoy a woodsy, jasmine and airy smell. This Gucci Memoire D’Une Odeur Eau de Parfum provides just that without being overpowering.
Who doesn’t love a good silky robe? Every morning while getting ready for my day I prefer to wear a robe that is comfortable and lovely to look at; it helps set the tone of my day.
My Mom would love nothing more than to be together in person this year for precious family time. Long after our video call, we know she will cherish the photo book capturing fun memories with her grandchildren and doing the puzzle with Dad of their favorite picture from their 50th wedding anniversary!
My kids know that the smell of gardenias evokes for me such a feeling of joy from my wedding day. Love that this gardenia bonsai blooms with serene beauty and alluring fragrance in May for Mother’s day brightening my home office. You can add a gardenia Yankee Candle jar candle to keep the fragrance year-round.
I’m also sending to a dear friend the Azalea Bonsai that blooms in beautiful vibrant pink and adding a windchime to let her know that, even social-distanced apart, we are here for her during her cancer battle.
Our family loves to cook, and this Mother’s Day we will be eating at home. The kids want to give me family fun, and there is nothing better than fresh herbs in our favorite dishes! I love it comes with garden weather alerts, seasonal recipes, and so much more.
My mom’s never been a gardener. The longest-living plant she owned was a fern from my great-grandma that beat all the odds (and survived my toys using its leaves as food). As such, we usually keep to non-living gifts in my family.
My passion for learning came directly from my mom. With a membership to Masterclass, she can choose classes taught by anyone from Reba McEntire to Margaret Atwood. And right now, they have a buy one, share one deal!
If you haven’t tried a sheet mask, please do. These have cypress tree oil, hyaluronic acid and avocado extract. It’s super moisturizing and soothing on the skin. I give sheet masks as gifts to just about everyone nowadays!
Even if you can’t be together this year, let your mother you’re thinking of her with one of these superb subscription boxes. Here are our favorites.
