Our mothers are one in a million and are not made the same, she’s individual, she’s unique, she speaks her mind, or she’s reserved and is as straight-forward as they come. That’s why the same spiel of “breakfast in bed and flowers” won’t fly this year and we have you covered with gift guides for the mothers as special and in her own lane as the daughter she created!
For the tech mom: This is a really cool twist on a phone docking station, that won’t just charge her phone, it will also play music, bloom the ambience in her room, and serves as a nice ornament for her bedside table. The design is made out of glazed stoneware and ships from the U.S.
For the chic career mom: She is the trendsetter of the family and also the worker bee of the home, who from time to time is traveling from city to city for her job. Though a cute personalized passport booklet or a leather wrap travel case to store all her cables and devices would be convenient, give her something as stylish as her presence that will leave her thanking you the entire weekend. Street style influencers from over the pond have already been spotted with this summer’s latest bag, the straw tote. The Franchi from Lord & Taylor is durable, has space for on-the-run storage, and transitions her well into becoming one of the first with the style of the season.
For the athleisure mom: She is always dressed as if she’s hitting the runway after she makes a gym stop. She is still as youthful in spirit and appearance as your girlfriends and always has a full of new lycra, sports bras, and gym bags. Pick her up a pair of GEL-Lyte III from ASICS to step out in and show off during her next errand run. The metallic sneaker comes in champagne and classic blue, so either color you choose, she’ll be sure to love them.
For the mom obsessed with scents: L’Occitane is a wonderful quality french line that has been around for over 40 years, so what better what to take your mom to the Lavender fields of Provence without having to pay for airfare. Made with natural ingredients, the spa gift comes with hand creme, a perfumed sachet, scented candle, Bonne Mère bar soap, and foaming bath. If you purchase online, you’ll get a free 6-piece Shea Butter Vanilla Kit with code ICONIC.
For the hygge mom: The Danish term “hygge” may sound foreign to you, but it’s a Scandinavian lifestyle that we can all get behind because it is cozy lifestyle concept that incorporates treating yourself, relaxation, and comforting guests as prime ideals to achieve the perfect minimalist environment, what else could a mom ask for? The Mercer Bathtub Caddy, Sheepskin (or faux) rug, or handwarmer mugs are all gifts for the mom who needs a little hygge in her life.
For the diva mom: What better place for her to store all the makeup that she buys (and you borrow) from Sephora, as well as her trinkets, than in this rose gold glass cosmetics box lined with a velvet gray interior that will make her feel like the luxurious queen that she is. Beautify also sells a additional pieces like hexagon storage pots for her brushes and a mini jewelry cabinet to compete the storage set. It comes in two additional colors, glass and metallic gray.
For the proud black mom: We can think of dozens of gifts in this category from 12 Months of Melanin calendar from Toronto photographer, Setti Kidane to #BlackGirlMagic apparel from brands like All Dem’ Shades or The Black Girls Project shop to books from White House reporter, April Ryan or TV producer and writer, Shonda Rhimes.
For the mom who loves to cook: Give her a electric spiralizer that will transform any vegetable or food item into a sprially-dish of her dream. Lately with the latest health advocating a gluten-free (or gluten-less) diet, the spriralizer is revolutionizing the switch from carb-heavy foods like pasta, rice, and potatoes. It can make zucchini, carrot, squash, and even sweet potato noodles for your mom to substitute into her next pasta dish. If she’s not into the health craze, pick her up a copy of Angela Davis’s ebook at The Kitchenista Diaries.
