Whatever ‘mom’ means to you, Mother’s Day is the perfect way to show your love…
We kid, we kid. We all know mom would be perfectly happy with a hug, kiss, and a thank you. But we also know she deserves a kick ass present as well.
Here are some of our picks for the best Mother’s Day gift cards for all kinds of moms.
The Stylish Mom
This high-end contemporary women’s boutique in Charleston has all of mom’s favorite designers on the shelves. So if mom is the type to dress head-to-toe in designer garb just to go to the grocery store, then voila, we’ve found her Mother’s Day gift for you.
If mom cares less about clothing than she does about her designer accessories, than a trip to Edon Manor is the perfect Mother’s Day gift for her. For your sake, we hope you’re the same shoe size.
And for the mom whose closet rivals the Vogue archives, a Decades gift card is what she needs. At this high-end LA vintage shop, she’ll find her newest fashion treasure to add to the collection. And if you get jealous, just remember these three words: Hand. Me. Downs.
The Beauty-Loving Mom
For the beauty loving mom — and we’re not just talking about how much she loves you (ba dum tss) — CAP Beauty in NYC is a must visit. She’ll find all her favorite natural beauty products that keep her looking youthful. Because even though you hate it, she not-so-secretly loves when strangers think the two of you are sisters.
Pink Dot Beauty Bar
A Mother’s Day gift card to Pink Dot Beauty Bar in Charleston is also a great choice for the makeup-obsessed momma. With brands like RMS Beauty and Smith & Cult in store, you know her beauty regimen is in good hands. Plus, if she’s been craving a new ‘do, she can head upstairs to Pink Dot’s salon sister, The Hive, to freshen up her tresses.
And if mom wants green beauty but lives in LA, The Detox Market is her new home away from home. From skincare, to makeup, bath and body products, hair care, and even detox cleanses, this West Hollywood shop stocks the best of the best of healthy beauty.
The expectant Mom
Lullanest is the Hamptons’ chicest baby shop for hip new mommies, so for her first Mother’s Day, we suggest sending her to the shop to stock up on Chloe baby wear. Because if mom deserves to wear Chloe, so does baby.
We love the idea of gifting a new mommy the chance to escape to a spa for a few hours on the weekend, so for the deserving mom, a Sawyer gift card is the way to go. Sawyer is a super cool app that allows mom to book NYC kids classes with just the click of a button, freeing up an hour or two for some much-needed mommy pampering time.
Mac & Mia
Mac & Mia is a subscription service that brings adorable baby outfits straight to your door. No need to pack up the stroller. In our opinion, this Mother’s Day gift is a no brainer.
The “I have no time for myself” Mom
We all need some time to spend bettering ourselves — especially busy moms — and nothing perks up a mood like a fresh manicure. Hortus Nailworks in NYC is a completely green nail salon that specializes in chic nail art, allowing mom to feel beautiful on the inside and outside.
For the mom with a cramped neck and sore back because every night is spent tossing and turning to avoid getting kicked in the head by tiny feet, a day spent at Exhale Spa is not only one of the best Mother’s Day gifts, it’s a necessity. She can indulge in a massage and facial, and even try to relax with a quick yoga session.
For some (crazy) moms, the ideal relaxation time would be spent sweating away all her stresses. For this fitness momma, we suggest sending her a gift card to YAS Fitness for Mother’s Day. YAS combines yoga and spinning for the ultimate cardio, strength training, stretching, and alignment workout, which we know will leave mom happy and refreshed. One warning though: She might get addicted.
