Mother's Day Gift Ideas I wit & whimsy

It’s hard to believe May will arrive this Friday! And with it comes Mother’s Day this year falling on May 10th. I’m keeping this year’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide super simple this year with a few thoughtful, impactful ideas for the mom and mother figures in your life.

If your mom is like mine, she doesn’t want anything except love and a phone call. But that doesn’t stop myself or my siblings from wanting to show her appreciation each May.

Mother’s Day 2020 Gift Ideas:

Flowers. Tried and true and a personal favorite gift of my own mom. I use UrbanStems when ordering flowers.

Equilibria Mother’s Day Gift Set. This gift box from my favorite CBD brand has a bit of everything to help mom pamper and get some R&R. Use code witwhimsy to get 15% off your order.

Masterclass Membership. Does your mom love to be a student? Get her a membership to Masterclass where she can enjoy classes on everything from wine tasting to photography.

Book of the Month. Nothing like the gift of reading and Book of the Month is a gift regularly given by me. A three month subscription is such a good gift to look forward to weeks after Mother’s Day has passed.

Homesick Candles. These candles are a favorite gift of mine to give. When a couple moves in together I get one for each from their home state. Treat your mom to the fragrance of her favorite place to vacation or the scent of the places where her children live.

Eye Mask. Because pretty much everyone I know right now could use a bit better sleep, treat your mom to this luxe eye mask for more Zzzs.

A New Robe. Nothing better than a good quality, fluffy + soft robe to put on when getting out of the shower. I have this one and can’t recommend it enough.

Water Bottle. My mom recently asked for a water bottle knowing I get a lot in various mailings. I have one waiting to ship her and it is very similar to this beautiful one. Perfect to have by your side when reading or working out.

Glass Food Containers. If your mom is like mine, her Tupperware could use an upgrade. These glass containers are my very favorite and are perfect for meal prep and leftovers. Dishwasher and microwave safe to boot!

Le Creuset. Does your mom love to cook? Why not surprise her with a beautiful piece of new cookwear? For the first time ever, the brand is 20% off.

Sarah Flint Scarf. This silk scarf by Sarah Flint is the prettiest accessory. I wore it in Paris here and think it would make the loveliest gift.

Taschen’s Book of Flowers. This book looks gorgeous and is perfect for the mother who loves flowers.

Room Spray. A thoughtful and useful gift all in one. Try a room spray like this one from NEST for the mothers who love a tidy + fresh feeling home at all times. During quarantine I have a new found love for my room spray.

Comfy Slippers. A new pair of slippers always feels like such a treat. This pair looks extra cozy and yet stylish.

BBC Gardener’s World Magazine. My mom happened to call me when I was writing this post and recommended I include her favorite magazine so here we are! BBC Gardener’s World offers loads of transportive images and helpful tips if your mom is into gardening as mine is.

How are you treating your mom this Mother’s Day?

  1. Those are some great ideas. I decided to get two small trinkets. Mainly because I could order them from a local store that sells items by local artisans. I know that so many stores and artisans are struggling, and I wanted to do something to support them.

  2. I’ve been finding nature-related magazine subscriptions are a great gift for my homebody mom – there are so many great ones out there! I also have to recommend what was probably my most successful Christmas gift to her in years: A Garden Miscellany: An Illustrated Guide to the Elements of the Garden by Suzanne Staubach. It is a genuinely lovely book! (And, if ordering any books at all, please consider using bookshop.org to support local indie bookstores instead of Almighty Amazon ;). )

    1. I just learned about that site this week – appreciate you sharing it and also the recommendation that will most likely be under the Christmas tree for my mom 🙂

  3. Thank you for the post, I gifted two items based on your recommendations. I was not aware of UrbanStems, and am so glad to have a new, fresh option for floral gifts. Thanks Meghan.
