Where would we be without mom? With Mother’s Day 2021 being May 9, it’s never too soon to start thinking about Mother’s Day gifts for the mom in your life. (Really, if we learned anything from mom, it’s that you can never be too prepared.) And though for many, it may feel like a gift truly worthy of the mom in your life will be impossible to find, that is, happily, not actually the case.
If anything, the best Mother’s Day gifts are often those that are uniquely personal, such as makeup gift sets for the mom who bought you your first lipstick, or a fragrance gift set that features her signature scent. And when it comes to Mother’s Day, it’s not exclusive to the woman who gave birth to you. From not-so-wicked stepmothers to preternaturally cool aunts, from glowing moms-to-be to even you, they’re all deserving of a special something. With that in mind, we’ve selected the best Mother’s Day gift ideas to celebrate Mother’s Day 2021.
For the beauty-obsessed mom
Did you haul you to the department store to set you up with your very first skincare routine? Does she swear by her favorite face serum? For those mothers who’ve taught you the lessons of caring for skin and keeping it radiant, the ideal gift for mom doesn’t get much better than a skincare gift set — namely, Advanced Génifique Activating & Illuminating Set. Featuring Advanced Génifique Serum, Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye and Advanced Génifique Yeux Eye Cream, it has everything she might need to keep her skin youthful and radiant, even around the delicate eye area.
For the mom who treats her garden like an extra child
Whether your mother is a known horticulturist or just appreciates a fresh bouquet of flowers, add La Vie Est Belle Gift Set to your list of gift ideas for mom. This perfume gift set features the beloved scent, which uplifts and delights the senses with a joyful blend of iris, orange blossom and jasmine sambac — it’s like a pick-me-up in a bottle. In a full-size perfume, purse spray and body lotion, she can layer it on and enjoy the scent as it blooms. And if she’s fully stocked up on La Vie Est Belle, try La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal eau de parfum, a sunny twist on the classic with a heart of white florals. Its bottle can be engraved, too, for a truly personalized gift for mom.
For the mom who never treats herself
There’s a lot of sacrifice that comes with being a mom, whether it’s a Saturday afternoon spent watching an eighth-grader’s tennis match — or just five minutes of peace and quiet. (Remember that?) And many times, it’s thankless work, which part of the reason why excellent Mother’s Day gift ideas are in order. With a skincare gift set like Renergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Cream Set, which has Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra SPF 30 Day Cream, Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Eye Cream and Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Night Cream. They work together to lift, firm and protect skin, evening out tone and smoothing the lines that you may or may not have caused — truly, the best Mother’s Day gift.
For the mom-in-charge
For many working moms, the work doesn’t end once they log out of the last meeting of the day. There’s dinner to consider, baths to be had and books to read aloud before bedtime. Short of gifting her a personal assistant, show her your appreciation with thoughtful gifts for her, such as the Idôle Gift Set. Idôle is a fresh, modern floral scent that celebrates the power of femininity, and this perfume gift set shines the spotlight on it with the Idôle eau de parfum, Idôle Power Cream, Idôle rollerball and a limited-edition gold Idôle case.
For the mom who’s the life of the party
Cool moms exist, you know, even if they’re not out until last call. For the mom who has a standing date with her friends, whether for drinks or a 5K, there’s the Monsieur Big Mascara and Lash Primer Set. This makeup gift set pairs the volumizing mascara with the Cils Booster XL Lash Primer, which both conditions lashes and enhances the results of your mascara, for showstopping lashes. You can gift it — or keep it as your own best Mother’s Day gift for yourself.
