12 Unique Mother's Day Gifts to Get Your Amazing Mom This Year
Your mom has done a lot for you. You know, like teaching you how to apply eyeliner (and do your taxes), buying your your first bra and lying to your dad when you missed curfew. As such, she deserves one hell of a Mother’s Day gift. Here are 12 to ensure you’re the favorite child.
Sleek Luggage with a Built-In Charger
Now that she’s got an empty nest, your mom’s become quite the traveler. Make sure she looks the part with a carry-on suitcase that’s almost too chic to store in an overhead bin. This simple yet stylish bag comes in ten gorgeous colors and was named one of Oprah’s favorite things last year, so you know it’s good.
A Hardcover Photo Book
We’ve long loved Artifact Uprising’s gorgeously made photobooks, and come Mother’s Day, we can’t think of many gifts more suitable for a mom who’s also a grandma. Imagine her delight at flipping through (and showing off) pages on pages of adorable pics of her favorite little kiddos.
Artifact Uprising (from $69)
A Customized Bracelet
Another excellent grandma gift is a piece of sterling silver jewelry featuring the names of her best little pals. This simple but pretty bracelet is a constant reminder of you and your kids, and we’re willing to bet it’ll become part of her daily uniform, like, immediately.
Tiny Tags ($70)
Her New Favorite Shoes
Handmade in Gaziantep, Turkey, these simple leather slip-ons are pretty damn close to perfect. They also get better with age. (Ahem, just like your mom.)
A Flower Subscription
What’s better than giving mom a bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day? Giving her a monthly bouquet delivery (for three, six or 12 months). Every four weeks, a gorgeous assortment of blooms will show up on her doorstep. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving.
Bloomsy Box (from $40/month)
Even if your mom is the most ardent Chanel No 5 loyalist, she’ll love designing her own scent with Waft. After filling out a pretty in-depth profile, she’ll be able to engrave her personalized bottle and will be spritzing her custom perfume in no time.
Psst...enter the code PUREWOW at checkout for 10 percent off your Waft order.
A Silk Eye Mask
File this under: things she’ll probably never buy herself but will become obsessed with when someone gifts it to her. This silk eye mask is soft, hypoallergenic and blocks out virtually all light—meaning she’ll get the best night’s sleep since before you were born.
A Book Subscription
The buzzy Book of the Month Club will send your mother a selection of fabulous new books each month, from which she picks one to receive in the mail. Sign yourselves both up and you can start your own little book club.

Clip-On Statement Earrings
How fun are these? If you’ve been rummaging through your mom’s spot-on jewelry collection for as long as you can remember, why not add to it with a pair of very on-trend statement earrings.
Sachin + Babi ($250)
A Sweet Little Succulent
Mini plants are all the rage right now, and we adore this one with a cute little message on the side. Plus, succulents are super easy to care for, so your mom doesn’t even have to have a green thumb to keep it healthy.
This Brooklyn-based company makes a Portable Fireplace scent that smells exactly like, well, a fireplace. And Spirit Lamp has notes of peaches and ginger. Our favorite, though, is ’85 Diesel, which is very “classic rock in a vintage car.”
D.S. & Durga ($65)
A Pretty Wine Decanter
After all the stress you’ve undoubtedly put her through, your mom deserves a nice glass of wine.
