From fresh fragrances to cozy cashmere pieces, to a gift that will help her stay healthy, here our favorite gift ideas for your #1 lady.

Farmhouse Pottery

We fell in love in this brand when we kept seeing it pop-up in country markets from Vermont to Sonoma Valley. Their products are so well made and add a gorgeous touch to any kitchen or dining room. We personally love the Beehive Salt Cellar and Spoon to keep in the kitchen for cooking or on the kitchen table and the Countryman Pitcher, which can double as a vase for fresh cut flowers.

There are so many perks to having plants in your home, from health benefits to décor enhancements to happiness triggers. For Mother’s Day, add a pop of natural greenery to her home with a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree. From 12″ tall upon arrival, this tree can grow up to about 8′ tall indoors. This gift will add a lush, warm vibe to any room in your mother’s home.

Allbirds Wool Runner

For the mom on-the-go, the Allbirds Wool Runner is a must-have sneak. These kicks are cool in the heat and warm in the cold, they’re designed for comfort and breathability, and they can be washed. These are the perfect shoes for spring and summer weekends spent outdoors with the family.

Alo Yoga Activewear Set

Is your mom totally addicted to yoga and her good vibe tribe? If so, suit her up with the newest fashions from Alo Yoga. Not only will she look and feel great during her practice but will have movability and comfort on her side. Our favorite look for mom? The Eclipse Long Sleeve Top, High-waist Moto Legging, and Air Tank.

Lite & Cycle Lavender Candle

Mom will be forever grateful when you introduce her to the soy wax candles made with essential oils by Lite & Cycle. Pick from any of the amazing scents or go with our favorite—lavender, which has a calming effect, relieves headaches, and promotes restful sleep and balance. All products are traditionally crafted using only therapeutic-grade essential oils, and they contain no synthetics, toxic additives, or hidden fragrance chemicals.

Kayu Beach Tote

Summer is just around the corner and that means many trips to the beach for mom. For the perfect bag to store sunscreen, beach towels, and more, hook mom up with the St. Tropez Beach Tote by Kayu.

Cashmere Sweater

If we are trying to pamper mom with some of the finest luxuries, this Mother’s Day we should certainly gift her a cashmere sweater. She can be cozy during nights spent at home or dress up the look for any party. We love the Citlani Open Front Sweater by Calypso, and the light pink color is perfect from the spring and summer seasons.

Variety Pack Hint® Water

Moms are always looking out to make sure we are living a well-rounded, health-conscious lifestyle. So why not do the same for mom? Sign her up for a subscription to the Hint Water Variety Pack so she can always have water on the go and kick those sugar cravings, too.
