Beyond the Bouquet

A guide to Mother’s Day gifts that we think any mom would love

A perfectly presented floral arrangement is the quintessential Mother’s Day gift for a reason — it is classic and beautiful. But this year, don’t be afraid to switch things up. Little gifts like bath bombs, perfume, or jewelry are a great way to express how exquisite you think your mom is.

All-Day Relaxation

With its cotton and ultra-soft microfiber fleece, the Nodpod Weighted Sleep Mask makes
sleeping, well, a dream! It features four weighted pods that contour to your face, with no
pesky straps to get in the way. It can also be cooled in the freezer for an even more
soothing experience.
$32, UrbanOutfitters.com

Encourage your mom to take a relaxing bath by giving her this gorgeous Floating Flower Bath Bomb. It features a cocoa butter chrysanthemum to deeply moisturize her skin and calming lavender oil, and nourishing almond oil. $9, Lush.com

Spruce up the Home

The fresh scent of flowers is temporary, so instead, try the Illume Coconut Milk Mango Diffuser for aromas with a little more staying power. Unlike traditional wall plug-ins and room sprays, this diffuser uses wood reeds and fragranced oil in a glass bottle to release a positive scent throughout the home. $28, CrateandBarrel.com

Whether or not your mom has watched the Netflix show, read the books, or
followed Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin on social media doesn’t matter.
She will love The Home Edit Workbook: Prompts, Activities, and Gold
Stars to Help You Contain the Chaos
either way! It features 52 home-editing
challenges to help you organize and maintain every space in your home in
just a few months.
$17, BarnesandNoble.com


Your mom doesn’t know how much she needs the LYMMC 180-Degree
Rotation Phone Charger Stand, but she quickly won’t be able to live without
it. It features a spot to charge AirPods, an Apple Watch, and an iPhone or iPad
with cords tucked away. The rose-gold color will make her nightstand pretty
and functional all at the same time.
$20, Amazon.com

From applying lipstick to dabbing on eye cream, the Browgame Signature Lighted
Makeup Mirror will always be there for your mom. Change the brightness and color
temperature by rotating the mirror to the left or right, then use the magnetic magnifying
mirror for an even closer view. When not in use, it looks sleek and pretty on any bathroom counter.
$169, Anthropologie.com

Kitchen Meets Art

Skip breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day and make your mom a delicious charcuterie on
one of these chic Monogrammed Serving Boards instead. Choose the initial of your mom’s
first or last name, which will be inlaid in brass, surrounded by white marble and mango wood. These food-safe boards are as practical as they are artistic, making them a thoughtful present.
$40, CrateandBarrel.com

Cereal has never tasted more refined than when it’s in a gorgeous Titania bowl created by
French artist and designer Nathalie Lete. The trio of whimsical designs inspired by florals,
felines, birds, and love are so elegant your mom is definitely going to want all three!

Luxury Beauty

If you can afford to splurge, then opt for a luxurious perfume like Marc Jacobs Perfect 3.3 oz. Eau de Parfum. It’s a bouquet in a bottle, featuring keynotes of daffodil, rhubarb, almond milk, cedarwood, and cashmeran. It’s a warm, feminine spring scent that your mom will love.

Charming, elegant, and timeless, this Zoe Lev Jewelry Two-Initial Necklace with Diamonds will be your mom’s new favorite piece of jewelry. Personalize this 14-karat yellow gold necklace by entering your mom’s initials when you order. It will then be covered with sparkling diamonds and integrated asymmetrically into the necklace. The result is exquisite — just like your mom. $580, NeimanMarcus.com
