Mother’s Day Shopping Gift Guide

From packing school lunches to helping you move into your college dorm, it’s no secret that mothers go above and beyond for their kids. Moms deserve to be thanked every day, and Mother’s Day is a very special day to celebrate the wonderful woman she is. When it comes to finding the perfect gift, it can be challenging to find something that suits a role model as great as your own mom. With the help of our Mother’s Day gift guide, you’re sure to find something in the greater Boston area that will make your mom’s day extra special.

For those of you who need a friendly reminder, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 12th this year!


Fresh Cut Blooms

We know, sending flowers on Mother’s Day seems like a no-brainer, right? If you’re looking to give your mom something a bit more exciting than flowers, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful bouquet.

The great thing about gifting flowers is the amount of options you have. You can order from a trendy flower company or hand pick fresh blooms from the garden, put them in a mason jar, and hand them to your mom when visiting her Forest Properties apartment. Regardless of which option suits you and your mom, here are some blooming recommendations:

Silk Pillowcases

Did you know silk pillowcases are said to help protect and hydrate skin, reduce split ends, and help minimize morning bed head? Treat your mom to a pair of silk pillowcases to improve her sleep and luxurious look of her Parkside Apartment master bedroom.


At-Home Spa Accessories

If there are two big at-home spa trends we’ve noticed in the past year, it’s jade rollers and essential oils. Jade rollers are handy little gadgets that are said to help soothe skin, reduce wrinkles, and aid in relaxation. Speaking of relaxation, essential oils are good to have handy. From eucalyptus, lavender, meant, or a mix of the three, you can pick up a variety of essential oils at stores like T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

Get Creative: A gift idea we love for Mother’s Day is to create an at-home spa gift basket. Pick up a jade roller and a box of essential oils, along with a pair of fuzzy slippers, hand lotion, candle, and your mom’s favorite bottle of wine!

Speaking of Joanna Gaines, did you know she has her own magazine? If your momma can’t get enough of home decor, gardening, and cooking recipes, a year-long subscription to Magnolia Journal is a great gift idea. Priced at $20 for the year (or $30 for two years), the magazine is delivered at the beginning of each season and is full of relatable, inspirational content. You may find your mom’s Spring Hill apartment is in for a farmhouse design makeover!


A Gardening Tool Basket

If your mom has found her green thumb in apartment gardening, gifting her a gardening tool basket is a great way to welcome the season. Here are a few items to include when preparing a tool basket:

  • A monogrammed canvas tote or sturdy basket
  • Floral print gardening gloves and kneeling pad
  • Packets of seeds for flowers, fruits, and vegetables
  • Pruners, hand trowel, and garden fork

If you’re tight on time and can’t make it to the store to pick up the above items, Williams Sonoma sells a beautiful Agrarian Tool Basket with recommended (and adorable) gardening tools and accessories.

A Temperature Controlled Mug

Whether your mom prefers coffee or tea, a temperature-controlled mug will honestly change her life. Be prepared that there’s a chance you may fall in love with it and purchase one for yourself, too! Ember is a popular brand that offers multiple colors, remote adjustments, and can keep your drink nice and toasty at 130°F!
