Mother’s Day Fashion and Home Goods Gift Giving Guide

There are so many wonderful reasons to celebrate this spring: birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and (perhaps most importantly) Mother’s Day is drawing near!

First we’ll just say that for the record, that the number one thing most moms want on their special day is to know how much her family appreciates and loves her! In our humble opinion, the best gift from her kids is a lovely heartfelt note, and of course, time spent together.

BUT if you’re looking to get mom a little something more, we have some fun treasures to consider. From home goods to fashion accessories, here are some sophisticated gifts that will make Mom feel pretty darn special.

Interior design and decor is a natural place to look for gift ideas – choose an exciting brand like cult textile design house Marimekko to put a unique spin on beloved classics. In the bathroom, Mom will love a new set of towels in a fun print

or a brightly-patterned, luxurious bathrobe.

In the bedroom, a set of beautiful sheets in her favorite palette won’t fail to please.

In the dining room, grace Mom’s table with a stack of fine linen napkins, like this signature set from Hudson Grace.

Or dial up her hostess game with an elegant champagne bowl

or a cheese service that’s fit for the highest taste.

For the culinary goddess, there is no greater gift than a new toy to play with in the kitchen. Scanpan Danish cookware has emerged on the scene over the last few years and become a fast favorite, with the latest and greatest in nonstick pots and pans. Outfit Mom with a set of pans to replace her old ones (like these from Sur La Table), or choose a pan with a unique function to add to her collection, for crepes, paella or dumplings.

Whatever her style, chances are that the mom in your life will be thrilled with something beautiful to wear, wrap or carry. Choose a statement handbag that will complement her look, whether classic,

or full-on fashionista.

If something soft sounds like just the ticket, choose a scarf or wrap in a beautiful fabric: we love this

this super-soft wool wrap from Burberry,

and this cashmere-blend printed shawl from Roberto Cavalli. Or give her a set of gorgeous pajamas, so she can fall asleep knowing how loved she is.

Does mom need a little pick-me-up in the morning? Perk her up with a Nespresso espresso machine! With this thoroughly modern approach to coffee, she’ll pop in the capsule, choose her settings and can even schedule her perfect-every-time cappuccino to be brewed when she wakes up.

While they may not last a lifetime, edible gifts get extra points with foodie moms. A gorgeous gift basket of teas, jams and shortbread will hit the spot for any Anglophile.

For a savory option, try a gift box with a selection of cheeses, spreads and cured meats – this set comes with a beautiful serving board and artisanal fruit and veggie accompaniments.

For a gift that keeps on giving, set Mom up with three months of delicious, flaky croissants delivered to her door – Williams Sonoma offers this sampling of perfect pastries that will remind her of you each time they arrive.
