This year, give mom something thoughtful—and useful—that won’t break the bank.
For Mother’s Day on May 9, you don’t need to spend big to show mom you care. Below are just a few simple and affordable ideas—like ceramic bowls, cozy slippers, and body wash—to help you give a little back to the woman who gave you everything.
Le Creuset Mug
For coffee, tea, hot chocolate and even single servings of soup and dessert, the Le Creuset Mug has a generous 14-ounce capacity and keeps contents warm or cold. Crafted from premium stoneware in our irresistible colors, the mugs are part of our dinnerware collection and finished with a vibrant glaze which is easy to clean, dishwasher-safe, and resistant to chips, scratches and stains. Designed to stay beautiful with daily use, Le Creuset’s dinnerware brings elegant style to every table and occasion.
Flowerhead Tea Early Grey
Assam is a hearty base for distinct bergamot and bright cornflower. Dotted with local citrus peel and a pinch of lavender. A strong, energizing, floral cup.
Everyday Oil Mainstay Blend
All natural, unisex skincare for your whole body + whole family. A blend of organic cold-pressed plant oils and steam-distilled essential oils that are cleansing, hydrating + balancing. For use on the face, body + hair (everywhere). The Mainstay blend has our signature blend of cold-pressed plant oils; Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba and Castor Oil. The essential oils are the Everyday Oil Mainstays : Palo Santo, Lavender, Geranium and Clary Sage. A blend that is a beautiful contradiction. Mysterious but familiar, uplifting but calming, cleansing, moisturizing, clarifying and healing.
East Fork Bitty Bowl
The smallest of the bunch, but the one we keep finding new uses for. Run a line of them holding votive candles across your mantle, set the table with personal-sized sauce bowls, keep sea salt close at hand (don’t mess with salt spoons—salt is antiseptic; pinch away!). An elegant solution for a drippy tea bag, for storing bobby pins by the bedside, for rings by the sink, and more, and more, and more.
Bathing Culture Mind and Body Wash
Respect yourself with our naturally radical, certified-organic, biodegradable soap that feels like jumping into a cold river on a hot day.

Stasher Reusable Silicone Sandwich Bag
A total crowd pleaser, some say the Stasher fam starts with this essential — whether you’re meal prepping and packing your lunch, or just trying to keep your tinted moisturizer from exploding into your gym bag. Fun fact: The Sandwich can also hold 10 energy bars or a laptop charger.
Victorinox Swiss Classic Paring Knife
A paring knife is every chef’s go-to tool for precision jobs in the kitchen, and our Swiss Classic Paring Knife 10 cm is a knife drawer standout not only for its fresh color palette but also for its sharp edge and pointed tip. Expertly remove pepper seeds, swiftly core an apple, slice a pile of vegetables into sticks or finely dice them into perfect little squares – whatever job you give it, the smooth, uniform cuts of this Paring Knife will result in dishes that are as beautiful as they are nutritious.

The Chameleon Board Game
Blend in. Don’t get caught. Six players. One word each. Everyone sounded pretty convincing, but someone isn’t who they say they are. That someone is The Chameleon. In each round of The Chameleon, a secret word is selected from a Topic Card in the middle of the table. Everyone knows what the word is, except for the player with the Chameleon card… but which player is it? Using cunning, social deduction and some serious mob mentality, each player shouts out a related word to prove their innocence and tries to track down the impostor. Once everyone’s said their piece, the voting begins and the moment of truth arrives. In order to successfully track down the guilty player and win the game, players will have to use all of their teamwork and witch-hunting skills. If you’re the Chameleon, however, the rules are much more simple. Don’t. Get. Caught.
