For the mom who loves lux pajamas
Pajamas are one of my favorite gifts to give (and get). This lux minimalist set from Cozy Earth is made with responsible materials and production. There are 7 different colors to pick from and can even be customized.
For the sentimental mom
If you've ever struggled to write down just how much your mom means to you or if cards just never seem to do her justice, this is the perfect gift to give for Mother's Day. I gave this gift to my mom last year after coming across Charlotte's Instagram and I think it's one of the best gifts I've ever given.
For the skincare obsessed mom
The holy grail of skin products, especially for anyone with sensitive & dry skin. I'm on my third tube and will never use another moisturizer again (it's that good). Buy one for mom and one for you! Also be sure to check out their Instagram (as well as Charlotte's, she is truly my skincare fairy godmother).
For the mom who is always on the move
Having a comfortable white sneaker is just as important as having a favorite little black dress. Grab these for mom, especially if she's loves to rock athleisure & casual wear.
Lightweight on your feet and on the environment, too!
Also comes in 13 others colors.
For the tea loving mom
Organic & naturally caffeine-free tea that is almost too beautiful to drink. Flower teas that are filled with antioxidants and help to promote relaxation. Be sure to browse their blog to find a tea that's perfect for mom (or for you).

For the mom who loves hosting
OK hear me out, this is not your typical hosting gift, BUT getting dressed in midst of hosting can be stressful. Gift this dress to Mom and she can easily style it to fit a comfy, casual vibe or elevate it into a more dressy & sophisticated vibe, too.
For the mom who loves designer bags
Angela Roi is the "it bag" in terms of high-quality luxury vegan bags. Crossbody bags can be tricky for how small and impractical the interior is. The Grace Crossbody is one of my all-time favorites as it is incredibly roomy, but still remains lightweight. Read more about the journey of Angela Roi here.
For the mom who is always cooking
Fresh ingredients are a must for anyone who loves to cook. Treat mom to these organic hydroponic (just a fancy way of saying they self-water) herbs.
Another great gift idea; a produce delivery box subscription.
For the mom who is also your best friend
The new version of friendship bracelets are these halo rope rings by Iris 1965. Not only is the ring stunning, but I love that the company is an Ode to the founders mother.
For the mom who loves to grill
For the mom who loves candles
Minimalistic vessels that will look great in any room. Love this candle as a Mother's Day gift idea since each candle also comes with a matchbook. Also can be added to a gift basket with ease.
For the new mom
A personalized picture frame that can also be customized. A perfect keepsake item.
For the cozy mom
If mom always seems to be cold or is reaching for another layer, this cardigan is the perfect Mother's Day gift for her. It's also great for anyone that works from home (or is it just me that's ripping off my robe three seconds before every zoom call?)
For the plant mom
Flowers are great, but don't last for that long - opt for a gorgeous air purifying plant instead! The Bromeliad Aechmea Pink plant stays in bloom for over half the year, is easy to care for, and is pet friendly.
For the mom who loves baths
Add a tablespoon to a hot bath and soak away all the worries of the day.
*Woman-owned small business
For the mom who loves wine
Red, white, rose and bubbly are all included in this gift set by Avaline. The simple and minimalistic labels also make for great additions to gift baskets - grab a bottle at Target or select grocery stores near you.
Vegan friendly, transparent ingredients & free from unwanted additives.
For the mom who loves biscuits, toast, or scones
Mom's love homemade gifts and what's better than a fresh batch of biscuits or scones? Biscuits or scones with jam, of course. I love that Trade Street Jam doesn't stick to the traditional jam flavors and adds a little extra flair in each. Check out the founder's favorites below, or take a peek around the website and build your own gift set based on what you think Mom might like best.
*woman & black-owned company, based in Brooklyn, New York.
For the sustainable mom
Homemade plant milk doesn't have to be complicated thanks to the Nutr. This compact machine allows mom to make homemade almond milk in just minutes; see how it works here.
For the onion and garlic loving mom
Salt is a necessity in almost any recipe, so why not have a little fun with it? Saltery takes it up a notch with bold and flavorful salts. Add the onion lover or garlic lover salt to any recipe for an extra delicious dish. If mom loves cocktails, be sure to check out some of their other salt flavors too - they make for tasty salted rims!
*Woman-owned small business based in Duxbury, Massachusetts.
For the mom who needs more self-care
For the bookworm mom
Each month contains 4-5 books to pick from including early releases and honest reviews. It's the modern day version of book club.
For the homebody mom
As a fellow homebody, this puzzle is everything.
*Woman-owned company highlighting female artists and creators.
