Mother’s Day rolls around every year, and every year we’re overwhelmed with options. Do you go traditional or get her something unique and personal to the bond you both share? Moms can be the hardest to shop for, but we’ve made it easy with our roundup of last-minute Mother’s Day gift ideas for the traveling mom, fashionista mom, and every mom in between.
Spa days are one of the most popular Mother’s Day gifts. This year, put a spin on the basic massage and facial package and give her options she didn’t know existed. Thai stone therapy and reflexology are just a few spa services that she may never have considered. Image Body Spa in Beverly Hills offers even more services including body scrubs, radio frequency, micro-needling, hair removal, invasive, and non-invasive treatments. You can even take it up a notch by sending her to a day spa that includes jacuzzi’s, saunas, and restaurants with a fab cocktail list.
Jewelry is always a great Mother’s Day gift. Diamond stud earrings, simple pendant necklaces, and gold bangles are just a few pieces that are timeless, classic, and can be worn every day. But with so many options, giving her something of sentimental value goes a long way. Opt for My Saint My Hero, a purposeful jewelry collection of wearable blessings that includes prayerfully crafted bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. Each piece arrives with a card including a prayer or inspirational message. We also love the Emma J X Dawn McCoy jewelry collection, where a portion of each sales goes to the No Kid Hungry charity.
If your mom is the type to cook several days a week, then she is well overdue for a break. Treating her to a restaurant is nice, but having the restaurant come to her could be even better. Hire a personal chef for a night to whip a meal just for her and allow her to take the night off from prepping and cooking meals, and even washing dishes. This is her day to be catered to, literally.
Wanderlust is all too real and it’s not hard to catch the travel bug these days. If your mom has itchy feet but can never seem to make time for a vacation, why not treat her to one? With flights being more affordable than ever, if she’s been talking about visiting a certain island or country in particular, surprise her with a roundtrip ticket! Plan it all out for her so she doesn’t have to lift a finger. Mom doesn’t have a passport? Treat her to one. This is the perfect gift that keeps on giving, at least for 10 years.
We’ve known our moms our entire lives and can still have the hardest time shopping for them. It may seem a little impersonal, but sometimes gift cards are the best way to go for the mom that has everything. Snag her a card from her favorite store or a gift credit card so that she can use it at her leisure on something she always wanted but couldn’t bring herself to buy.
Wishing you an amazing Mother’s Day and tune in next week for another roundup on The StyleList. Hosted by Kinya Claiborne, STYLE & SOCIETY Magazine.
