Mother’s Day is swift approaching, and yes it’s not just you, Mom Day is particularly early this year. But don’t fret, we got you! We’ve compiled a variety of delightful and creative gifts for all kinds of moms! So without further ado….
Plant Nerd Mom:
I am a self proclaimed plant nerd and I am loving the Entangled Life. Also, Powells is a great, ethical bookseller for new titles.
Pair that with Primo Botanica mushroom chocolate!
Better World Books is a great sustainable and affordable substitute for Amazon. If your mom tears through books with ferocity, order her a great big stack without breaking the bank. And don’t feel bad if one of your choices misses the mark, these books are all pre-loved.
Pair with: For Bitter For Worse Gift Trio for some hangover-free sippers.
Floret, A Year In Flowers is going to inspire any flower lover. This collection paired with a bouquet from a local florist perfectly marries the classic with a new flower-loving twist.
Want to take it to the next level? Include this super soft, feminine bamboo nightgown made from sustainable fashion brand YALA Designs. We love the buttery, flowy fabric and the vibrant palette of the Molly gown.
Host Extraordinaire Mom:
The Good Drinks book is perfect for a mom who loves to throw a good party. Because a well stocked bar includes delicious N/A options!
Need some cool cocktail accessory? Amehla Glassware makes custom engraved, hand-blown glassware.
Is your mom way cool? Claws Out nail polish is a radical nail polish brand. Their product is environmentally friendly, and each nail polish color is associated with a different donation cause.
Or consider a Wildfang gift card! Wildfang is a bold, intersectional-feminist clothing brand, and who doesn’t love a jumpsuit?
Nomad Trail Mix snacks are paleo, GF, and vegan (except a few that contain honey). This is next-level trail mix—a beautiful marriage of quality, nutritious ingredients, and sophisticated & creative flavor profiles. Nomad Trail Mix is also a PNW business and Black-owned.
Also consider a gift card to She Fly peeing hiking pants! Any seasoned outdoorswoman is well acquainted with the ol’ bare-assed pee… She Fly is lookin’ out for us!
The Saskatoon is also a perfect choice for an outdoorsy mom. The sharp tannins from Douglas Fir tips and lush berry from the Saskatoon Berry pair beautifully with the scent of pine and a breathtaking view.
Sober Curious Mom:
Gift her a subscription to Good Drinks The Newsletter.
Badass in Recovery Mom:
Do you know a mom whose sobriety is her superpower? If you want to show her you're proud of her sober journey, consider the FBFW Sober Merit Badge set as a playful option.
Perhaps pair with a powerful recovery memoir. The Temper recently released a roundup of recovery memoirs and essay collections written by women.
May 9th is a great day to celebrate all the moms and mother-figures in our lives. And if you’re re-parenting yourself—treat yourself to a little something too. 💛
