In the year of online shopping, thinking about what to get my mom for Mother’s Day 2021 is… the same as it always is. Hard. I can seriously never think of what to get her. (And neither can any of my siblings.)
If you, too, are struggling with a purchase for a friend or family member (or what to ask for yourself, shoot!), check out our Mother’s Day 2021 gift guide for inspiration. There’s something for every budget and matriarch on your radar.
Lunya’s washable silk pajamas are SUCH an amazing gift. This minimalist collection is beautiful, high-quality, luxurious and elegant to boot.
Curate the perfect box of goodies for your favorite lady. Knack allows you to buy pre-selected gift bundles or create/customize your own. Their selection is vast — including anything from beauty and spa-esque products, to wine and food, to office and stationary essentials.
These glasses are inspired by antique stemware and the perfect way to add a little pop of color to your dining table this summer. We also love that this company is woman-owned.
Bubby.io ~$119 (5 hrs)/$179 (10 hrs)
Similar to Storyworth, except the platform is video-chat-based rather than written. Makes for a more interactive family experience.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. Chatbooks are a great (and easy) way to bundle all happy memories with mom in one single photo album.
HOKA Bondi 7 Running Shoes ~ $160
These sneakers are quite possibly the most supportive option out there, and they’ve got the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance. Seriously the best gift you could give your fave lady’s feet!
Is it a hypoallergenic glass bottle, or an insulated, cooling stainless steel canteen? It’s both! Dishwasher-safe (yay!), the Prism Hybrid Canteen holds up to 20 oz of liquid and is perfect for infusing fruit and keeping your delicious beverage cool while on the go. Comes in tons of fun colors!
Personally, I love receiving books as gifts… Check out any one of our reading list round-ups (winter 2022, summer 2021, or the year prior) for some great ideas. An audiobook subscription also makes for a fantastic gift! There’s always Audible (you can read about Audible’s membership options here), but we also like Scribd, and especially love Libro.fm, which is comparable in cost but supports local/independent bookstores.
Vanity Planet Evina Spa Facial Steamer ~ $145 (on sale for $69)
It’s time for a little self-care, Mama! Bring the spa to you with this facial steamer. The Evina hydrates, detoxifies and removes impurities from your skin. Bonus: it’s compact enough to take with you when you travel.
These supersoft, plush slippers with animal print patterns are purrr-fect (see what I did there?) for cozying up at home. One reviewer said wearing them feels like she’s walking on clouds. Something to note, however, these slippers tend to run small, so size up.
Round Bamboo Elisabeta Crossbody ~ $378 (on sale for $189)
Round bags are so stylish and unique. Not only is this the perfect bag for summer, but with its quality soft Italian leather and bamboo accents, it’s easy to dress up or down. Carry it across the body, or by its bamboo handles.
For those of us who have every intention of making the cute handprint T-shirt/bag/coaster/what-have-you but are just too lazy/busy/tired/whatever, this adorable, handmade cutting board is the perfect solution.
For moms who love getting jewelry…
I love Kendra Scott so very much. This bar pendant necklace is available in gold, silver and rose gold and can be engraved with her name (or any sentiment!).
With jewelry, it’s hard to visualize how things will look on you. Rocksbox is a new subscription service that sends a monthly box of jewelry so she always has something fresh in the rotation. Best of all, she can buy and keep what she likes. Give her a 6 month membership for $99.
For the mom who still prints *real photos (hah!). Moms are so cute.
Luna Weighted Blanket ~ $76
For any mom who doesn’t yet have one of these, they are SO comforting. Actually, they’re kind of addictive… I keep one at my desk, on my bed, and on the living room couch.
Happy Mother’s Day to us!!
