With Mother’s Day just around the corner, the crunch is on to find the perfect gift. Of course, mom says that all she wants is a homemade card and maybe some breakfast in bed. But we know that even the most selfless mother (and aren’t they all?!) wants and deserves a little pampering.
If you’re stuck for the perfect gift idea, starting today we’ll be highlighting Mother’s Day gift suggestions. So whether you’re the husband, parent, child or best friend of a new, veteran or expecting mommy, you’ll find the perfect gift (in a variety of price ranges) in our Guide to Mother’s Day Gifts.
For Bling-Bling Mommies
There’s a good reason jewelry is the most popular Mother’s Day gift: there’s no mom out there that doesn’t love a little baubleâ€¦ or even some full-on bling! If you’re not sure where to start, go classic – a mother’s ring (or bracelet or necklace). We’ve got three great selections, so you can match the gift to her style sensibility (and your budget).
For the traditional mom, a simple, sparkly pendant necklace like this sterling silver one from RedEnvelope.com is the perfect way to show off her favorite gems: Her kids! The pendant is specially made to feature up to four gems, one for each of her children. Precious gemstones (or semi-precious, if that’s your preference) are channel set in the order requested. Prices range from $125 – $1,480, depending on the number and quality of stones chosen.
No, it’s not a traditional mother’s bracelet, but Lucina‘s gorgeous pieces are the perfect gift for a mom with a big heart – so big that she cares not only about her own family, but also about struggling families around the world. Lucina’s exquisite jewelry is made with fair trade-imported and ethically-sourced gems, sliver and other materials – a practice that creates economic opportunities in war-torn communities around the world. It’s almost impossible to choose a Lucina favorite, since one piece is more breathtaking than the next, but we especially love the Women to Women International collection. This stunning Nadia Bracelet in purple is especially stunning. Prices start from under $100.
For a mother’s ring, we love the classic, crisp lines of a stackable gem ring, like the sterling silver ones on sale right now at Sorella. These stunning rings are custom-made, which takes 2-3 weeks – so if a gem ring (precious or semi-precious, depending on your budget) is on your gift list, order it now for guaranteed Mother’s Day delivery.
For the mom whose jewelry box is already over-flowing (is there such a thing as too much jewelry?!), you might be on the prowl for a more practical gift to help her shine. How about Brookstone’s Jewelry Cleaner? Only $50, the ultra-sonic cleaner will keep her fine jewels (and eye glasses, too) sparkly, without any harsh chemicals.
