Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away, and if there’s ever been the perfect time to shower your mom with love, it’s now. Even though you might not be able to spend time with her in person, take some time to show your mom your love through a handwritten letter or phone call and a small gift. We’ve gathered some of our top picks that our own mothers have loved.

For the Sentimental Mom: Customized Tea Towel

Printed with a family recipe or a sentimental quote, custom tea towels will bring a smile to your mom’s face every time she walks into the kitchen.

For the Beach-Loving Mom: Handcrafted Oyster Shell

We featured these gorgeous shells in our Spring 2020 issue, and we’ve fallen even more in love with them since. Used as a ring holder, salt dish, ornament, or whatever your mother chooses, these shells are adorable little trinkets that tell a story.

For the Mom Who Doesn’t Like Gifts: Flowers

She may say she doesn’t want anything, but no mom would turn down a bouquet of blooms on Mother’s Day.

For the Stay-at-Home Mom: Candle

Little luxuries can make life much more enjoyable, and filling your home with a favorite scent is proof. For the mom who is spending most her time inside her home, an aromatic treat will make each of her days a little happier.

For the Grandmother: New Sheets and Pillowcases

She may have lost countless hours of sleep watching over your children, so show your appreciation by giving her luxurious sheets to help her get some of those hours back. We’re currently loving Red Land Cotton’s sheets because they’re so cozy yet breathable.

For the Mom Who Loves to Cook: Dutch Oven

She probably has almost every gadget and utensil out there, but gift her with a new enamel-coated cast-iron trivet that looks as beautiful as it is functional—she’ll love it forever.

For the Gardening Mom: A Harvest Basket

Whether she’s hauling fruits and veggies or a basket of blooms, your green-thumbed mom could probably use a little help gathering her beauties together to bring in from the garden.

For the New Mom or Grandmother: Birthstone Necklace
