Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and long gone are the days of delivering mom breakfast in bed, scribbling an acrostic poem on construction paper, or posting a throwback Insta (okay, maybe you can still get away with the Mother’s Day ‘gram, as long as it showcases your most awkward childhood outfit and mom’s best 80’s styling). This year, we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for fun treats to gift to mum via snail mail from California. It’s the least we can do to thank her for loving and laughing us through the toughest phases and continuing to pick up the phone (or learn the latest tech communication) to make sure we stay in constant touch. Read on for a look at how we’re spoiling her; we’ve curated a selection of things for every type of mama.
For the hostess with the mostest: She’s not just a regular mom; she’s a cool mom. Make her next dinner party a hit with the to-die-for recipes found in (1) Mexico: The Cookbook. The hot pink cover – decked out Mexican papel picado style with intricate cutouts of skulls (our obsession) – adds the perfect pop of color to her kitchen. Can’t fit another book next to the Barefoot Contessa on her overflowing kitchen shelf? You can’t go wrong with this (2) chic bowl that was handmade in Paris (confessions of an Astier addict). Magnifique!
For the power-broker: She’s making a to-do list and checking it twice. This savvy lady still finds time between back-to-back meetings to be supermum. Brighten her day-to-day by sprucing up her office desk with a unique piece of art. Upgrade the finger painting with this sweet (3) Guatemalan huipil textile that still sings, “you are my sunshine.” Think she needs a breather from her demanding days? Gift a massage at the best local spa paired with this gorgeous and relaxing (4) eye pillow to encourage her to take the break that she deserves. Crushin’ it.
For mother nature: Summer’s almost here, and this fresh, free-spirited mom is counting down the days until she can sink her toes into the sand. Delight her on her special day with this (5) handmade tote and throw in some (6) natural mineral sunscreen to protect her from the rays. This lady is not the type to sit idly on the beach all day, so be sure to surprise her with a pair of (7) colorful Stella McCartney leggings for that sunrise yoga class. Namaste!
For the fashionista: A daring style guru, this mom loves to make a statement. We recently discovered a fab (8) pink asymmetrical hat that has her name all over it. No doubt she’ll turn heads. And we know, this girls’ girl will absolutely love it if you pamper her with a mani plus this runway (9) bold burnt orange polish. Work it.
For the globetrotter: She taught us to embrace worldly experiences and always say yes to adventure. Our jet-setting mom deserves a little extra luxury on the road, so we’re sending her our (10) gorgeous Baby Alpaca Throw (pretty-in-pink, obvi) to cozy up in on her next flight. A first class gift, indeed. Reminiscing about the safari family trip of a lifetime? Nix the generic photo album and surprise her with this (11) regal giraffe figurine (seriously sumptuous). Bon voyage.
For the mom who returns everything: We all know mom loves whatever we get her… but she also knows what she wants. Go with our (12) St. Frank gift card and let the woman shop. Effortless.
