Every year, on the second Sunday of May, we know that Mother’s Day will be celebrated. Yet each time it seems to be a stressful scramble to find the perfect gift that is thoughtful, meaningful, and perhaps even functional. A new tradition of gifting someone that is close to you or that you admire who is not your mother is another opportunity to make someone feel appreciated with a thoughtful present. But what do you do when that special someone is also challenging to shop for? We put together our favorite must haves for every type of mom, whether it’s your own, a friend, or someone that’s really been there for you.
For the Mom who Loves Fashion & Mother Earth
Rag & Co is one of our new favorite footwear brands. Designed with premium leather in colors that are stylish and perfect for spring, each pair also features ergonomic design. Gifting a pair of Rag & Co sandals, mules, or heels also says that you appreciate Mother Earth too. The brand focuses on eco-friendly materials, production methods, and packaging, and an eco-system where design processes oversee a pattern of recycling and re-use. Styles feature environmentally friendly and cruelty free leathers, faux suedes and other materials which look towards sustainability and ethical practices. Our favorite picks for Mother’s Day are the must-have mules! Dressier than slippers or sneakers, yet super comfortable and stylish. We love the Molly Mustard Frayed Leather Mules, Zooey Colorful Woven Flat Mules, and the Lia/White Silver Leather Mules.
For the Mom that Likes to Keep Things Neat
Does mom comment how good it feels to have everything neat and clean? Has she been trying to figure out a way to make her Work from Home space more stylish? Then here’s the perfect gift! Love Desk Mats are like an oversized mouse pad, but better because they protect more space and your mouse isn’t limited to a small area. Love Desk Mats protect desks from dust and scratches, keep your desk space clear and organized, and will add some super style to any home office. These mats are super soft, easy to clean, and are made with 1/8″ thick non-skid natural rubber backing. There are also three sizes to choose from and mom can even create her own special design of the kiddos or her fur baby!
For the Mom That Loves to Glam It Up
Some moms love beauty products, while others can’t find a brand that fits their personality. That’s why we love Color Story, an all-inclusive cosmetic brand that champions diversity and beauty for all. Inspired by New York City’s medley of cultures and backgrounds, Color Story was created in 2018 to celebrate a rainbow of skin tones. The brand encourages everyone to celebrate beauty your way with richly pigment products that pop in or skin tones. That’s a message that everyone loves, especially mom.
