Mama Ring


Made from 14k yellow gold, the Audry Rose Mama ring is accented with a sweet little heart and so universal she can wear it non-stop.

Taja Candle


Custom Candle


She’s probably been gifted a candle before, but I can guarantee she hasn’t been gifted one like this. The hand-poured candles from Miami-based Taja are housed in gorgeous reusable glass vessels which can be completely customized with words, logos or even photos. Choose from a wide variety of sophisticated essential oil-based scents and a range of sizes to create something that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Not a designer? That’s fine! For an additional fee their design concierge will work with you to knock it out of the park.

Caraa Market Tote


Market Tote


If she regularly roams the farmer’s market, this is the gift she’s been waiting for. Organized, stylish and oh-so-efficient, the Caraa Market Tote has a clever place for everything–an insulated zip pocket for cold groceries, four vertical bottle pockets, a roomy inside, a botanical strap and a zipper pocket for her essentials. Time to schedule a picnic, stat!

Tiny Tags Flamingo Feather Necklace

Tiny Tags

Flamingo Feather Necklace


Fun fact: When raising their babies, both male and female flamingos lose their signature pink hue due to the demands of feeding and caring for their young. The good news? As their babies get older and less dependent, their color comes back. As moms, we need to be reminded that this season of life is temporary. If you’ve got a mom on your list who’s in the thick of it, this delicate flamingo feather can serve as a reminder that with time, support and a heaping helping of self care, she too will get her pink back.

Vitruvi Glow Essential Oil Diffuser


Glow Essential Oil Diffuser


We’re longtime fans of the minimalist ceramic diffusers from Vitruvi, but let’s be honest–breakable decor isn’t always an option with little ones. Luckily there’s now a stress-free and equally relaxing aromatherapy experience in the Glow. Designed with a similarly chic aesthetic the ultrasonic diffuser is made with durable recycled plastic and offers the added option of soft light. The perfect bedside companion for reading exactly three pages before dropping her book directly on her face.

With Heart- Every Mother Counts Bouquet

Farmgirl Flowers

With Heart: Every Mother Counts Bouquet


There is nothing quite like fresh flowers. Farmgirl’s arrangements are fresh, modern, and stunning, and what you see is what you get. And while the entire Mother’s Day Collection is absolutely stunning, we’re particularly smitten with the With Heart bouquet. For each arrangement sold, Farmgirl donates $10 to support Every Mother Counts to assist in their mission of achieving equitable maternity care for every mother, everywhere.

Oui the People Hydrating Body Gloss

Oui the People

The hydrating serum-meets-body oil glides on like silk and sinks in instantly to give parched skin a gorgeous glow. You don’t even have to wait to get dressed! Their newly released Cedarwood scent is an instant fave with a woody and floral vibe that’s downright sexy. Yes to all of it.

Environ Intensive Revival Cream Mask


Intensive Revival Cream Mask


As my facialist tells me, masking is key to your skin’s health–and trust me, I’ve tried more than my fair share in my quest to unlock it. Only one has ever sent me to my group text to tell everyone they need to buy it STAT. Environ’s Intensive Revival Cream Mask. The AHA-powered gel is dubbed a “facelift in a jar,” and made my skin notably softer the very first time I used it. It’s hydrating and plumping and best of all, it doesn’t irritate or sting in the slightest. The only downside to gifting it is she’ll become addicted to the glow!

sanuk yoga sling sandal


Sling ST Sandal


A super cute sandal that feels like yoga pants for your feet? Sign her up. The Sling ST from the always comfy Sanuk pairs with everything from summer dresses to jeans and tee shirts–which is perfect since she’ll never want to take them off.

OTM Monaco




If she’s ever suffered the catastrophe of her favorite lipstick melting all over her cosmetics bag, she’ll go gaga for OTM. Their super chic makeup bags are designed with a high-tech lining that shields your coveted beauty products (and sunscreen!) with a heat resistant, radiant barrier that keeps them protected even in hot direct sun.

NuFace Mini+ Starter Kit


Mini+ Supercharged Skincare Routine


Take her skincare routine to the next level with this power-packed set from NūFace. The small but mighty Mini+ uses microcurrent to tone, lift and contour the skin and facial muscles to a degree that with consistent use, rivals much pricier treatments. Personally, I was little skeptical, but looking at the before and after photos in just a single session, I was sold. Along with the easy-to-use app, it’s a fantastic tool to help de-puff and give that fresh-faced look in just a few minutes each day.

Petite Plume Luxe Pima Cotton Panthere de Paris Nightshirt

Petite Plume

Luxe Pima Cotton Panthère de Paris Nightshirt


Luxurious but comfy, the Pima cotton nightshirt from Petite Plume will make her feel just the right amount of spoiled (and adored). The fabric is incredibly soft and high-end but still cool and breathable, which truth be told, may ruin her ability to wear any other pajamas ever again. And if you really want to earn some bonus points, personalize them with a monogram!

Fewer Finer Two Pockets Ring

Fewer Finer

Two Pockets Ring


Be still our beating hearts. This minimalist beauty is more than just a pretty bauble. Inspired by the parable that suggests everyone should carry two notes in their pockets–one for times of discouragement that reads, “I am the rock on which this world stands. Everything revolves around what I choose to be”  and one for times that require humility stating, ““I am nothing but a grain of sand. Everything in the world is greater than me.”–the 14K gold ring is is set with a diamond in each side. Slide it to the large baguette diamond when you need to feel your power, and flip it to the small round diamond when you need a bit of grounding.

Yohana Subscription


One Month of Helping Tackle Her To-Do List


As a busy mom, her to-do list can pile up pretty quickly. Don’t gift her one of those hollow “coupons” for help. Truly help her get it all done with a subscription to Yohana. Yohana is a premium concierge service she can use right through her phone to juggle everything from meal planning to finding a local handyman to fix a broken washing machine. Their team of helpers can even book appointments and help plan birthday parties. It’s like giving her a second set of hands!

Ray Ban Meteor




For the trendsetting mama with an eye for timeless style, Ray-Ban’s classic Meteor sunglasses are a guaranteed slam dunk. Not only are they impressively durable, they’re perfectly on point for every occasion. And let’s be honest–they can really work wonders for concealing the fact she’s slept a collective 12 hours all week.

Brooklinen Mulberry silk bundle


Mulberry Silk Bundle


If anyone needs their beauty sleep, it’s a mama. Ultra-pampering, this gift gives from Brooklinen will help her sleep better thanks to the breathable and soft-as-butter mulberry silk eye mask and pillowcase. Bonus: It’s also super gentle on both skin and hair.

Corico The Olive Boat Pit Port Motherly


The Olive Boat & Pit Port


For the mama who prides herself on her charcuterie board building skills (yes, it counts as cooking as far as we’re concerned), this is the gift she never knew she needed. The clever dish elegantly serves up olives while providing a place to hide the discarded pits. The hostest with the mostest? We think so.

kibou vegan leather bag


Fanny Pack Diaper Bag


Upgrade her diaper bag with a chic fanny pack. Perfect for the toddler mama who’s just toting the essentials, the Kibou is small but mighty. According to one fan, hers is currently holding “three diapers, 20 wipes, changing pad, baby hat, one burp rag, extra baby sleeper, two masks, hand sanitizer, my keys, emergency underwear and crayons, 10 Band-Aids, credit card, chapstick, and my phone.” Full-size diaper bag—you get the boot.

Meenal Patel Studio Mother Mountain Print

Every mom deserves a pair of luxurious pajamas. Ones that she can slip into and feel like a million bucks just to curl up and go to sleep. The best ones out there? The sets from Cozy Earth. The classic style says “I’ll await brunch in my chambers, thank you” and is so incredibly soft she’ll be asking for the matching sheet set ASAP.

Juicing enthusiasts and novices alike rave about the incredibly powerful Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer which makes quick work of whatever fruits and veggies you can think of. Just open the hopper, toss in your faves and that’s it. No painstaking chopping or adding one ingredient at a time.

The art-deco-esque packaging and incredible recipe guidance makes it a gorgeous gift that deserves a spot on every summer bar cart.

jiggy boobs puzzle


Boobs Puzzle


Is there a better holiday to celebrate the girls than Mother’s Day? We think not. Like the rest of the gorg puzzles from Jiggy, it comes in a reusable glass jar and includes a tube of puzzle glue so she can proudly display her new art once she’s finished.

Woda Bag


Woda Bag


Adventure-loving moms need an adventure-ready bag. The innovative and water-proof Woda Bag– launched by two Charleston mamas–weighs next to nothing but can easily stand up to sand, saltwater, sun and well, kids. Plop it in a puddle! Drag it through the mud! Stuff it to the brim with the day’s essentials (don’t worry, it’s still super comfy even when it’s heavy) and hose it off when you get home. And even though it’s tough as nails, it comes in a collection of gorgeous colors that are almost too pretty to get dirty. Almost.

Cuyana Small Zipper Pouch


Small Zipper Pouch


Classic and chic, Cuyana accessories are always the perfect gift. (They’re also made in a women-0wned factory!) We love the versatility of this core piece which can be carried on its own when all she needs are the essentials or tucked into a tote when she’s carting the whole shebang. Make it extra special by adding her initials!

Packtowl Changing Poncho


Changing Poncho


The ultimate beach day multitasker, the Packtowl Changing Poncho is perfect for moms with kids in tow. It’s both a super absorbent towel and a convenient way to change without having to drag everyone to the bathroom with her. And with a cozy hood and generous kangaroo pocket, it’s possible to dry off and keep warm hands-free. (Chances are she’s using them to help someone else anyway.)

Affordable Mother’s Day gifts

Mother’s Day isn’t about spending hundreds of dollars on presents. This is the one day out of the year that is dedicated to families appreciating everything their mom or partner does on a daily basis.

Maybe this sounds cliché, but a thoughtful gift is more sentimental than an expensive present. We moms simply want to know that you are thinking of us and didn’t forget the day that honors every moment we spend parenting, which is basically every second (and yes, we love it!).

This year, you can surprise your mom or love with a phenomenal gift that costs less than $35. Remember, it’s the thought that counts. Here’s our curated selection for different kinds of mothers, because let’s be real, there is no one-size-fits-all gift.

The rad trucker style goes with everything and the fit is absolutely impeccable.

Neroli + Driftwood In-Shower Lotion Bar


She wants to moisturize but can’t wait around to get dressed after? This is absolutely the answer to that scaly dilemma. Just rub it on wet skin right out of the shower and you’ve got blissfully moisturized gams the entire day–without having to deal with the stickiness of lotion. Brilliant! (Also, the neroli driftwood scent is absolutely dreamy.)

W&P Insulated Wine Glass


Insulated Wine Glass


Sipping a beverage in the sun is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Our vessel of choice? The W&P Insulated Wine Glass. With a silicone exterior it feels secure in hand, and thanks to the edge-to-edge ceramic coating, it doesn’t give sophisticated beverages that gross metallic taste. Of course it also keeps drinks cold or hot and that terrazzo print? Perfection.

Prima Bath Gem Motherly


CBD Bath Gem


This prized bath bomb contains a luxurious blend of meadowfoam and sunflower seed oil, 25mg of CBD, along with a variety of aromatherapeutic oils.

everyday oil

Everyday Oil

Body Oil


Body, skin, hair, bath, you name it, this oil can be used on it. It absorbs best when you put it on right out of the shower, but I’m so obsessed with the smell that I use it some mornings even when I’ve skipped the shower. The mainstay blend is a mix of rich cold-pressed plant oils including coconut oil, olive oil, argan oil, jojoba and castor oil. Its intoxicating and calming scent comes from a mix of palo santo, lavender, geranium and clary sage but is also available fragrance-free.

P.F. Candle Co. Incense

P.F. Candle Co.



Candles are great, but sometimes you want something a little different. One reliable fave? P.F. Candle Co. incense. It has fabulous throw, infusing a sizable space with scent that’s not smoky at all and lingers for just the right amount of time. Los Angeles is a personal fave, but teakwood and tobacco is a close second!

Quiet Earplugs


Motherhood is nothing if not overstimulating (to say the least.) Designed to reduce ambient noise by 27 dB, the soft silicone Loop Ear Plugs Quiet soften the noise around you just enough to drown out things like traffic, barking dogs, or that 90th episode of Blippy, but not so much you’ll miss a kiddo who needs you in the middle of the night. They come in a handy little case as well!
