Every mom we know seems to be wearing seven different hats. They’re juggling every responsibility: caregiving, mediating, keeping the family happy and healthy, scheduling time with (and without) their kids, and getting every task checked off on time. We compiled a list of gift ideas that are perfect for every mom you know— the one who loves to cook, bake, get her sweat in, lounge around with a good book, garden, or simply have a day off in the park. We’ve got you covered.
#1 Ma’am Shoes – Mothers’ day bundle
One of our favorite sustainable brands is Ma’am shoes, which makes elevated, everyday, stylish shoes for women. They want to give a shoe that will get you all the way through the day, while staying stylish and comfortable— without compromise. For this Mother’s Day The Outrage is partnering with Ma’am Shoes to create a limited-edition Mother’s Day collection in support of mothers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The collection includes slide shoes, tees ,and enamel pins adorned with “This is a Mom’s World” to celebrate the strength of mothers. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to support United State of Women and their fight for full gender equity, especially for mothers, during the pandemic and beyond.
#2 Caddis Glasses
Caddis is standing up against ageist marketing techniques aimed at women and men. The company founded in Salt Lake City creates durable glasses— readers, blue light, and sunglasses— that keep style and fit intact while also providing so many options. If you have a mom, grandma, or really anyone, in your life who struggles to find “age appropriate” glasses that don’t skimp on style, Caddis wants you to “join their cult” of the glasses obsessed!
#3 Partake, 5-in-1 Baking Mix
It seems like half of our time spent at the grocery store is checking every “all-in-one” mix for their list of ingredients to avoid a stressful allergen disaster. Partake’s 5-in-1 Baking Mix wants to make baking worry free. The 5-in-1 mix is vegan, non-GMO, kosher, and includes no rice, gums, or emulsifiers. The all-in-one gives you all the convenience of a multi-purpose mix while being free from gluten, dairy and the top 8 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, wheat, milk, soy, fish, shellfish), AND free of other common allergens: lupin, crustaceans, sulfites, mustard, casein, and sesame. A super mom can bake with the family to make super delicious pancakes, waffles, muffins, cakes, and more in a snap!
#4 Lingua Franca Tie Neck Blouse
At Lingua Franca, it all started with a stitch. What started as an embroidery project with a cashmere sweater, needle, and thread, turned into a “subversive underground movement to counteract the forces of mass production, mindless consumerism, and the patriarchy.” That’s a lot of punch for a soft sweater! But at KCM we love their ethos and the true meaning behind their products. They pride themselves with being sustainably-sourced, fair trade luxury cashmere sweaters, all hand-stitched by women in NYC. This year, the forward-thinking clothing company launched their Ready to Wear Collection, featuring this amazing tie-neck blouse. They’re a perfect gift to any mom, grandma, or great grandma’s wardrobe.
#5 Alison Roman’s ‘Dining In: Highly Cookable Recipes’
Cooking with your family — or for starters for yourself — can be joyful at times, but can become increasingly overwhelming as the weekly staples start to get tired. New York Times columnist and New York Times best-selling author Alison Roman published the cookbook to relieve that stress of “making the perfect dinner.” Dining In summons the delicious creative meal ideas for you and “helps you nail dinner with unfussy food and the permission to be imperfect.” Gift it to your favorite Mom who likes to try different foods but doesn’t have two hours to spend at Whole Foods looking for every exact ingredient the recipe calls for!
Alison Roman’s ‘Nothing Fancy: Unfussy Food for Having People Over’
For a perfect two-in-one gift, pick-up Alison Roman’s 2019 book Nothing Fancy as well, which is the true hostess’s guide to making small bites and meals in no time for hungry company. The book is chalk full of recipes intended to impress your favorite houseguests at the dinner party, without feeling the anxious stress to impress. Roman delivers cocktail recipes, snack ideas, and easy-to-make platters that will transport you to another world.
#6 Click & Grow – The Smart Garden 3
We love a lady who loves her herbs. She’s thoughtful, she doesn’t take yummy fruits and vegetables for granted, and she’s into a little TLC in the garden! The Smart Garden third generation is an innovative indoor garden that cares for itself and grows fresh, flavourful herbs, fruits and vegetables at home. Your favorite lady doesn’t need acres of land or a giant backyard — or maybe she simply wants some fresh fragrance at her fingertips. It’s promised to work just like a “capsule coffee machine, but for plants,” complete with biodegradable plant pods that have seeds and nutrients inside so you could enjoy homegrown food all year.
#7 L.L.Bean – Waterproof Outdoor Blanket
Make all your mom’s friends green with blanket envy! We see a slew of reversible blankets at the park every time we picnic and we found a great option for the outdoorsy mom. This waterproof outdoor blanket from L.L.Bean, in either teal blue and bright navy, will keep the whole family snug with it’s super-soft fleece side and waterproof outer layer. It’s perfect for camping and comes in a small black pouch for storage.
#8 Athleta – Warrior Longline Space Dye Bra + Elation Space Dye 7/8 Tight
You can never go wrong with a good workout set for your favorite mom. One of our favorite activewear brands, Athleta, launched their beloved Elation tight and Warrior Longline bra in spring and summer Space Dye hues: a dreamy tempest violet and creamy sienna beige. The set is perfect for studio activities like yoga, barre, pilates, or even just a brisk walk with the dog or kids. Go ahead, purchase one for your favorite active mom, and one for yourself.
