Mother’s Day is coming up on May 9th, and a few readers have requested a gift guide. So! Here are 12 sweet ideas for the mothers and mother figures in your life…
This year, I sent my mom a Danish rain coat so, even on rainy days, she can take her “nice little walk.” From $110.
A gorgeous bouquet of farm-fresh flowers, from $39. (We especially love this one and this one.)
The world’s best mascara since she loves a good before and after. $29.50.
Two dozen tea cookies, $26, including incredible chocolate caramel shortbread (far left).
A great new cookbook, such as Cook This Book, Ripe Figs and Simply Julia. From $15.
A do-everything pan with a cult following, $145, for her signature recipes.
A bracelet for her graceful wrists, $120. Also love this pearl bracelet.
A beautiful wallet to use every day, $98. (Or this pretty cardholder.)
A mug warmer to keep her coffee hot for hours. $29. (Alex swears by these.)
Sourdough bread with her name on it, $12.50.
A photo book or framed snapshot of her favorite people. From $15.
A donation in her name to Planned Parenthood, which provides vital health care and sex education for millions of people worldwide. xoxo
P.S. More great gifts for moms, and three complicated mother/daughter relationships.
