Mother’s Day is the one time a year where you get to recognize the special moms in your life. And since those lovely ladies put in such hard work taking care of the family all year round, why not show your appreciation by buying something extra special? With only a few days left before the holiday on May 12, we’ve got you covered with the perfect gift for every type of mom in your life.
It’s pretty much tradition to get flowers on Mother’s Day. But, why not kick it up a notch? Winston Flowers is ready to deliver floral arrangements that will impress mom with beauty and elegance. The Peony Fête bouquet for $250 goes beyond typical flowers in a vase and instead is a stunning centerpiece with coral-colored peonies and variety of pinkish-hued garden roses in a glossy white bowl. Fragrant sweet pea and lily grass top off the blooming masterpiece.
Instead of buying a new kitchen appliance for the amateur (or master) chef in your life, opt for a food lover’s dream experience. The Four Seasons Restaurant is hosting a Mother’s Day weekend cooking class on May 11 that’s led by executive chef Diego Garcia and executive pastry chef Bill Yosess. The private class will feature hands-on cooking, a four-course seated lunch with accompanying wine pairing and personalized Four Season’s chef coat or apron.
Mom loves to workout. But, mom doesn’t always have the opportunity to get to the gym with such a packed schedule. Solve the problem for her by buying a sleek and compact Flywheel spin bike. The indoor trainer allows mom to train with elite instructors by streaming thousands of live and recorded cycling and off-bike classes, ranging from five to 60 minutes, with new workouts added daily. She still gets access to the famous TorqBoard, and the weight bar is included as well.
Some moms are all about making a house a home and have an impeccable design sense. While it’s best left up to the artsy lady in your life to pick out the big pieces of furniture, you can surprise her with the perfect home décor touch: a candle. And no one makes better candles than diptyque. The Roses and Jasmine Duo Set for $130 creates a dreamy floral scent meant to “recreate the olfactory memory of the flower festival” in the South of France and comes in a beautiful box decorated with the House of Pierre Frey’s creations.
Does mom always want to learn a new skill, brush up on her salsa dancing or pick up tennis? There’s a cool tool that can help her master it faster. Halo Sport 2 (for $399) is a pair of brain stimulating headphones that not only plays high-quality music but also stimulates the motor cortex to allow you to learn movement faster. How does it work? Essentially, the headphones send small electrical pulses to your motor cortex which then provides an hour of heighten-learning where your brain can recall those movements with more ease.
If mom would rather be up in the air than anywhere else, we’ve got the perfect gift. RIMOWA’s Essential Cabin suitcase for $700 is the ideal blend of functional and fashionable. It’s the world’s first ever polycarbonate suitcase, so it’s durable, yet lightweight. Plus, it comes in five color options ranging from white to red with the choice of gloss or matte finish. You know this piece of luggage will stand out on the luggage belt.
A fashion-loving mom knows every detail counts. So, get her the ultimate accessory that will last her through all seasons: a scarf. But, don’t just get her any scarf. Splurge on the Monogram Silk and Wool Jacquard Scarf from MCM for $420 to show just how special she is. Complete with soft fringe and striking orange color, the understated luxury of the piece makes it stand out while still being a fit for every Day.
A woman, especially a mom, can never have too many bags. Help add to the collection by purchasing the Coach Charlie Carryall with floral print for $395. It’s made from luxury blue Italian pebbled leather and has several compartments including a spot for a 13" laptop making it perfect for carrying on-the-go essentials. Best yet, the floral print and glittery accents make it the perfect statement bag while still useful for the every day.
