Nailing that Mother’s Day gift has never been more important than it is right now. The longer this time of social isolation continues, the more and more we are realizing: it really is mothers who make the world go round.
Moms are literally doing everything right now. Across the country and around the world, moms are teachers, playtime coordinators, in-home-chefs, and housekeepers -- many while juggling the responsibilities of their regular 40-hour a week job from home amidst the chaos.
That makes this Mother’s Day the perfect time to celebrate and pamper her with gifts that will make her life easier. (And if you’re a mom reading this now, treat yourself!) Here’s 10 gift sets you can buy with one click to make your life easier...including a few of our favorite bloom pairings. Pssst! Our bloom Mother’s Day bundles are 15% off with code MOTHER15 until May 10!
We’re deep in quarantine at this point, and that means chances are high that the mom in your life hasn’t been able to take any meaningful time for herself in awhile. Give her an opportunity to lean into self care with this lush ritual set from Fresh. The Rose Deep Hydration Set is a real powerhouse of a skin care line, plumping and smoothing skin to bring out youthful radiance. And we’re not telling you what to do, but you should probably put the kids to bed a few nights a week, too, so she can indulge.
Surprise her with the most on trend bouquet out there that will never wilt and die. Yep, you read that right: no water or light required. We have all the heart eyes for this eye-catching dried bouquet from UrbanStems. The Claire Bouquet was designed by a woman-led floral agency and features an all pink arrangement of mini pampas, dried thistle and stargrass. She’ll be in awe of your eye (did you really pick that?!) and as a cherry on top, UrbanStems also offers add on options like chocolates or candles. You’re going to score major points with this one.
It’s hard to tell whether our coco lounger was designed for your baby, or for you! Sure, it provides the soothing rocking motions, but this piece of furniture was designed with aesthetic-focused parents in mind. The coco lounger + wooly bundle is the perfect gift for mama-to-be who might be a little concerned that having a baby means saying goodbye to good style. Because it doesn’t.
An ideal gift for the mama-to-be (but still be much appreciated long after the baby arrives), HATCH’s brilliantly curated pieces take the guesswork out of what to pack in your hospital bag. Just add a cell phone charger and you’ll be good to go! The set comes with a nightgown, robe and full coverage underwear, all made of luxuriously soft organic bamboo. There’s also a pair of Italian made socks from the HATCH x Maria Del Rosa collection.
Celebrating mom at her favorite winery with a tasting (or two) would be so fun, but in these uncertain times we’re doing everything a little differently. Go big with the Grande Tour de France wine set and bring the tasting to your dining room. This set features six wines from France’s most prominent wine regions, including two whites, three reds and a rose.
Go full luxe for mama this year and glam up your living spaces with our rose gold fresco high chair and coco lounger. Our award-winning high chair and iconic lounger are the perfect fit for modern or traditional home styles -- and a good place for baby to hang while you’re enjoying your new wine set (see above).
For the mom who loves leisurely stops at her favorite coffee shop, bring the joy of gourmet lattes home with this lavender latte set. This decadent set of Vietnamese coffee comes with five lavender pour-overs and accompanying creamers. Perfect for breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day morning.
Daydreaming about a summer retreat? Yeah, we are, too. Give mom (and baby!) an upgrade to the old travel cot with our luxurious alma papa crib. It’s the perfect fold-friendly crib to make baby at home in any getaway destination. And right now our best-selling crib that’s never on sale is 15% off through May 10! The bundle includes a solid wood papa crib, a bloom breathable mattress, a mattress protector, and two organic white fitted crib sheets. Everything you need to head to your summer home a little early this year.
For the foodie mama, we love this basket of all the snacks. In fact, we’re drooling a little just looking at it. Handmade pretzels, hot cheddar shortbread crackers, dark chocolate toffee covered pistachios -- need we say more?! This snack box breaks up the monotony of the same old bites you keep adding to your Whole Foods delivery cart, and each artisan snack is so special, eating them feels like a mini-vacation.
Celebrate mothers -- and all women -- with this incredible women’s rights gift set. This gift set is curated with thoughtful products designed to empower: a mug featuring the iconic Hilary quote, "human rights are women's rights and women's rights are human rights”, a travel candle encouraging her to persist, and a don’t quit your daydream journal that implores women to chase their dreams.
