The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide

The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Kendall Schmitz on May 6th 2022

A friendly reminder, Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY May 8th!!! That means you have about two days left to shop. That may not sound like much, but we’re a one stop shop here at Decade, so even if you wait until you’re already on your way to brunch, there’s still an easy way to show mom how much you care. We want to help you find the perfect gift to celebrate whatever kind of Mother you have in your life - New moms, Moms-to-be, Grandmas, Step Moms, Mother-in-Laws, working moms, crunchy moms, glam moms… whatever kind of mom you have, we’ve got something she’ll love (and not just because it’s from you).

Let’s begin with the basics. There are a few classic Mother’s Day gifts that will never go out of style. Jewelry, candles, and bath goodies like bubbles, salts, scrubs, and lotions. Even if you’ve got a low maintenance mom, no one can resist smell-good gifts. All of these are safe bets, and we’ve got a huge variety here in store. Paired with a nice card, her Mother’s Day will be complete - just don’t forget to write a heartfelt note inside. Now, to those of you who have exhausted these options over the years, I hear you. Let this be the year you get creative and surprise her with something unexpected. For example, here in Colorado, we have no shortage of active and outdoorsy moms. Is hiking her thing? Try a local trail guide or some fun yet functional sunglasses. If she has a green thumb, she’ll love our gardening tools and gloves that come in pretty prints. Yogi moms will love our selection of yoga blocks, books, and other accessories for her time on the mat. For the more laid back mom, you may want a relaxing gift that is a little more out of the norm. Mugs for mom fuel will most definitely be appreciated, just like sleep masks, slippers, or a good book on anything from cooking to astrology. On the other hand, mom may not get many chances to dress up these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make her feel beautiful with an elevated casual look that’s both cute and comfy. This doesn’t just apply to clothing, it extends to accessories like purses, scarves, and hair accessories like claw clips and headbands.

If you’ve read through this list and are still thinking to yourself, “none of this is right for my mom, she doesn’t want stuff” guess what? We STILL have something for you. There are plenty of fun activity gifts that will initiate the gift mom really wants most - quality time with you. Puzzles, vouchers, and bucket lists provide an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and remind mom what a thoughtful kid she raised. And hey, if all else fails, you can throw a gift card in with that heartfelt note you wrote in the perfect Mother’s Day card.
