8 Unconventional Mother’s Day Gifts


Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show your mom how much you care and thank her for all the sacrifices she made to make sure you turned out awesome.

Every mom is unique, so why shouldn’t Mother’s Day presents be?

Here are eight unconventional Mother’s Day gifts to show your mom how special she is.

Sugarfina Cocktail Gummies

Why get your mom a box of chocolates from the corner store when you can order her a unique box of cocktail-flavored gummy bears? Sugarfina cocktail gummies are an amazing gift for any woman in your life. The founders refer to their store as a “candy boutique for grownups.”

You can take your pick from gummy candies such as rosé bears, bubbly bears, skinny margarita bears, champagne bubbles or tequila grapefruit sours.

In other words, every mom’s favorite brunch beverage all contained within a gummy bear. Splurge a little and get her a variety pack that she and her friends will enjoy on a girls’ day out.

JasmineSupply Desk Terrarium

Instead of a traditional bouquet, get Mom a truly unique planter that showcases her favorite flowers, or start an herb garden for her that will both prettify her home and start a new gardening habit. So much better than a dozen roses.

We love this desk terrarium from JasmineSupply.  Particularly, the vintage wood used and the floating, transparent look. It will look chic everywhere from a kitchen, to an office, to a living room windowsill.

But keep in mind, there are tons of great planter and terrarium options on Etsy that are affordable and intimately unique.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

While everyone and their mom has a hair dryer, this is the Ferrari of hairdryers, The Dyson Supersonic stands in a league of its own, created to protect hair from the heat damage that hair dryers traditionally cause with the fastest digital motor available. Truly, this is a luxury gift to pamper your mom.

The Dyson Supersonic won loads of awards in 2017, and has a stylish, streamlined look. It even comes in a special Mother’s Day gift edition with free red storage case or display stand.

With a retail price of $399.99, this is one upscale gift that will last a lot longer than a flower bouquet with a teddy bear and mylar balloon.

Ohhio Braid Blanket

These luxurious, trending braid blankets feature giant, oversized “threads” that are knit together by hand instead of with a needle.

If your Mom likes to knit, you can purchase the blanket as a DIY kit. But don’t worry, for the rest of us, the blankets are also available to order pre-made.

These braid blankets are a fantastic statement piece in Mom’s favorite color. Because honestly, who doesn’t want the gift of coziness?

Bailey’s Almande

It’s no secret that moms love sugary cocktails. And after a long stretch of putting up with your drama, we don’t blame her!

Fortunately, a healthier version of dessert liqueurs has come out by Baileys. Their almondmilk liqueur is dairy-free and gluten-free, made with real almond milk.

It has a creamy, nutty vanilla taste with sweet almond oil and almond essence that goes perfectly on a summer evening. She’ll appreciate the gift even more if you spend some quality time sharing it with her!

Malin+Goetz Skincare

Snag your mom literally anything from this prestigious and aesthetically stunning skincare brand. Malin+Goetz keeps sensitive skin in mind, blending luxury with natural ingredients and technology. The botanical scents are to die for, and plant-based results are no joke.

Some of their best sellers are the grapefruit face cleanser, and Vitamin E face moisturizer. They offer fragrances and candles as well. Mom will definitely feel luxurious with this skincare line!

Citrus Sightings Lemon Tree

The Citrus Sightings Lemon Tree is so much more unique than a classic house plant as a gift. It blooms frequently and comes in a rustic burlap bag tied with a sage-colored ribbon.

Within the first year, fruits will set and produce a stunning amount of lemons for one lucky lady. Not only will this aesthetically brighten Mom’s home, but she’ll have an abundance of lemons to infuse her water with and stir into recipes.

She’s cooked for you so much, you might as well provide her with some of the groceries!
