Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2024: 13 of the Best Gift Ideas for Every Mom


Mother's Day gift guide 2024

Mother’s Day 2024 is on Sunday, May 12, which means this holiday is quickly approaching! From the best candle I’ve burned lately to loungewear that feels like a soft breeze on the skin, here are my picks for our 2024 Mother’s Day gift guide. I’ve included a couple of my wish list items as well—hint, hint to the people in my life! 

These are my favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2024…

1. Follain Candle #2

I recently had this candle burning in my kitchen and entryway and it felt like a little trip to the spa. It’s a nice little pick-me-up that would be a perfect gift. The vessel is beautiful and it burns for a long time.

2. Gardening Gift Card

Terrain Gift Card


All I want for Mother’s Day are plants for my garden—and to look cute while gardening. Terrain is a great place to shop for gardening essentials online. Your local nursery is bound to have beautiful items as well—and in doing so, you’re supporting a local business. My favorite is Tonkadale.

3. Wit & Delight Striped Spiral Notepad

Wit & Delight Spiral Notepad


Our popular spiral notepads made a colorful debut at Anthropologie this month! They’re great for keeping on a desk or in the kitchen for jotting notes down. 

4. J.Crew Woven Straw Tote

A carry-all tote in a classic woven material stands the test of time and will get used year after year. 

5. L’Occitane Shea Nourishing Trio Set

L'Occitane Gift Set


My skin is dry year-round and high-quality hand cream from L’Occitane is always a welcome gift. 

6. Roxanne Assoulin Heart Necklace

Roxanne Assoulin Heart Necklace


This is a big statement necklace they can wear proudly with a simple white tee or their favorite dress. 

7. MERIT Summer Set

MERIT Summer Set


MERIT makeup is a dream for no-fuss beauty lovers. The summer set is a great gift for the upcoming warmer months, designed for glowy skin that doesn’t look glittery. 

8. Another Feather Platter Ring

Another Feather Platter Ring


I love an heirloom piece that is understated yet special and easy to wear daily.  Another Feather specializes in that kind of jewelry. Any one of their pieces would make a great gift, with my personal favorites being the Platter ring, Vase and Urn necklaces, and Natica earrings

9. Fortune Frame

Fortune Frame


A little frame to hold their favorite fortune cookie message? I think this is such a cute gift idea! I want one. 

10. Berti Red-Handled Italian Kitchen Knives

Berti Red-Handled Italian Kitchen Knives


If the mom in your life loves to cook, good knives make the task a wonderfully meditative process. Handmade in Italy since 1895, these Berti knives are incredibly high-quality and would make an amazing gift.

11. Negative Underwear Whipped Track Pant & Henley

Negative Underwear Whipped Collection

$185 & $125

The Whipped collection feels like wearing nothing! The material is so soft and supple. Any piece from this collection would make a great gift for someone who loves to get into their comfies at the end of the workday or linger in them long into a weekend afternoon. 

12. Anthropologie Wine Glasses

Anthropologie Wine Glasses

$72 currently on sale for $57

These wine glasses are fun and festive and make a great gift for a mother who loves to entertain. 

13. PASCAL Oval Bubble Diamond Watch

A cute little watch that is on the top of my wish list.
