The Mother’s Day Gift Guide

What exactly should you buy for the woman who has done and will do anything in the world for you? Hold off on the flowers and the card (they’ll be dead in three to five days). Instead think special. Something gold. Something girly. Something she can indulge in. Something she can enjoy time and time again. Consider her hobbies–be it yoga, cooking, or gardening–and gift her a quality piece of equipment she can use (Lululemon yoga mat, gold-dipped utensils, or a straw hat to keep her face out of the sun). Or treat her to that special piece she would never consider buying for herself: a luxe throw, fancy bath products, or a pretty trinket she can keep on her nightstand.

With Mother’s Day around the corner (Sunday, May 12–mark your calendar!), we’ve compiled a list of items under $50 (many are under $25!) and under $100 that will be sure to put a smile on her face. We’ve also included a short list of activities you can either gift to her or do together on her special day.

And to our mothers, we just want to say, thank you.
