Mother’s Day is this Sunday, which means you only have a few precious days left to buy the perfect Mother’s Day gift. No need to panic, though: you have technology. With the help of free shipping and this handy gift guide, there’s no need for your mother to ever know how late you are (although, as they say, a mother always knows).
Traditionally, Mother’s Day gifts are limited to massages, manicures, and spa days. This year, switch it up with a present that’s totally unique. A gift card to a local program or workshop is the perfect way to help her pursue something she’s always wanted to learn. From cooking, to tango, to pottery-throwing, there are tons of options for you to choose from. Free classes will allow her to develop her interests, and the skills she learns will last her a lot longer than a nice set of toenails.
Cut-Rim Wine Glasses
If your mother is a wine-lover, a set of cut-rim wine glasses
is a luxurious present that she’ll be delighted to add to her collection. Cut-rim wine glasses lack a lip or roll at the top of the glass, and professional sommeliers swear by them because they allow the wine to flow out of the glass more smoothly. A rolled rim is less desirable, because it inhibits the flow of the wine and changes its flavor characteristics. However, if your mother isn’t a professional sommelier, she’ll probably be more delighted with the elegant design of the glass than the bouquet.
Leather Journal or Planner
If your mother keeps a journal or likes to stay organized, give her an upgrade with a premium leather journal or planner. She’ll love smelling the tang of genuine leather every time she opens the cover. As a bonus, you can include a lovely set of calligraphy pens and a heartfelt note written on the inside front cover.
All-Clad Measuring Cups
We say, go big or go home when it comes to Mother’s Day. All-Clad
is a brand of luxury cookware used by professional chefs, celebrities, and home cooks who are serious about their hobby. Those familiar with All-Clad already know that a complete set of pans can cost as much as a laptop—or several laptops—but at only $50, a set of measuring cups
is quite affordable. She’ll feel like a queen every time she takes them out of the drawer.
Home Espresso Machine
We Americans love our coffee. If your mother does, too, consider getting her a personal espresso machine. Although many espresso machines are expensive, there are many affordable models available which will allow her to draw her perfect shot with the push of a button. A bar of dark chocolate is a great accompaniment to this sleek gift.
Rainfall Shower Head
It might not seem like the most romantic present, but a rainfall shower head is an excellent option for mothers who love to luxuriate in the shower. These elegant shower heads simulate natural rainfall to deliver the ultimate relaxing shower experience, and most brands can deliver a wide range of water patterns and pressure levels. We recommend the Grohe Rainshower® Rustic 160 Head
, which offers 4 spray patterns and a 15° swivel ball joint, making it fully customizable.
Give Her the Gift of Pain-Free Living
If the hands that once fed and bathed you are now aching and sore, maybe the perfect Mother’s Day gift is relief. Orthosleeve offers a wide variety of durable, flexible compression sleeves that relieve the pain of those suffering from arthritis, carpal tunnel, deep vein thrombosis, and more.
