Mother’s Day Gift Guide — 5 Ways to Win Mom Over
Remember that time your mom literally brought you into this world? Yeah, that might be a hard act to match. We don’t doubt she loved the macaroni necklaces you gave her when you were a kid, but if you want to step it up this Mother’s Day (aka Sunday — freak out!), woo her with some food-centered gifts that really show her the love.
If there was ever a day to serve Mom breakfast in bed, May 11 would be it. Start things off right by serving her in style on Reclaimed Wood Trays from West Elm ($69-$115). Load them up with brunch dishes while she sleeps in, and rejoice in the fact that these gorgeous rustic trays are gifts in and of themselves.
Give Mom some sugar on this special day without reachin’ for a box of chocolates. Sweet at-home spa products from Fresh ($15-$130), including Brown Sugar Body Polish, honey masks, sugary candles and more, will make her the sweetest mama in town.
A whole pint is probably enough to do Mom in. But, thanks to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, a scoop of ice cream can be a mother-child bonding experience. The Mother’s Day Cream Puff Collection ($35) includes two ice cream flavors, extra-bitter hot fudge sauce and a killer cream-puff recipe (taken straight out of the upcoming cookbook Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts).
If all else fails, don’t beat around the bush to show Mom you care. Say it with Papabubble’s Mom’s Day Mix (from $5.50). With a mix of flavors like cherry-lime, raspberry and orange-passion fruit, these kaleidoscopic sugar candies are the new alternative to the “I <3 Mom” shoulder tattoo.
