We all have a million and one reasons to thank our moms, whether they gave us our humor, our style, our daily dose of wisdom or just a whole lot of love.
Now it’s our turn to give back.
If you’re pressed for ideas (and time), we’ve got your back. Here are our top picks to make mom feel like the elegant, funny, stylish, and loved mom that she is.
This heather pink t-shirt is the sort of pink that even those who are less than enthusiastic about the color love. With its sophisticated silky color and a playful pocket, it’s your best bet for a first gift. For a mom who is more on the elegant side, we recommend pairing it with something like this:
The Mer Sea wrap will keep her warm while she’s at work or going to the opera. It’s also guaranteed to go with almost anything else in her wardrobe (even the dress she’s supposed to wear for your cousin’s wedding).
If your mom would rather have an arm party, try pairing the Suzy D shirt with a few of our Lula ‘n’ Lee bracelets. They’re lightweight with a funky flair, and they’re easy to pair with other bracelet favorites.
Follow that up with a Lenora Dame necklace and you’re getting somewhere. It gives off a beachy-vibe that she can take wherever she goes. With its white and blue grey beads and shell details, it’s guaranteed to bring a little sunshine into her life, no matter the weather outside her door.
For moms who are feeling spring deprived, try the floral Subtle Luxury scarf. It’s like giving her an ever-in-bloom bouquet. The mix of deep blues, bright pinks, mellow yellows, and blue greens are enough to make it feel like there’s a possibility of seeing flowers bloom — even if she has to settle for the ones on her scarf.
If your mom, like many, is out to conquer the world (or her day), and doesn’t have time for too many accessories, we recommend a crossbody clutch by Joy Susan. They come in varying metallic shades and are made for those who want to look stylish and complete their to-do lists by 10 a.m.
Home and Hearth
Home is where the candles are. At least it is for some moms. If that’s your mom’s philosophy, opt for a Voluspa candle in a scent she might not yet have: panjore lychee. It’s feminine and fruity, with a touch of Asian pear to it. Plus, the beautifully detailed cut-glass jar is something she’ll want to keep long after the candle is burned out.
For the down-to-earth mom, we recommend going local with Beekman Spring soap. It’s made in the greater Capital Region and smells like all the best parts of the season: apple blossoms and fresh grass. Plus it’s chemical-free and ideal for moms with sensitive skin.
Still stuck? Try pairing the Lula ‘n’ Lee bracelets or the Beekman Spring soap with one of these John Derian dishes. They’re great decorations or for stacking up jewelry or storing soap. Plus, it’s another way to bring sunnier thoughts into her life.
