7 special gift ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is, of course, an annual celebration of your mom, and also a reminder to honor the many leading ladies in your life, from grandmothers to aunts and friends that are new mothers.

To help treat all the super-sheroes you know to the kind of presents they deserve, we’ve assembled the top seven picks for Mother’s Day gifts from our Women’s Fashion Collection and Bed & Bath Assortment. There’s something special for every type of mom.

1 | Cashmere is a mom’s best friend


Our made-to-crave cashmere, made from the fine, downy undercoat of Kashmir goats, pampers mom with dreamy softness and seasonless style. A few favorites include our Cashmere Asymmetrical Ruana (ideal for on-the-go days and feet-up nights), Cashmere Pointelle Cocoon Cardigan (with cubicle-to-cocktails versatility), and Zip-Front Cashmere Cardigan (a to-and-from topper that elevates mom’s hoodie game).


2 | Jewelry puts a sparkle in mom’s eye

Bring joy to her world with the gift of jewelry. Some timeless classics include the Ann Lightfoot Feldspar Necklace (a casual yet chic choice with a customizable length), Kristen Mara Callisto Necklace (a quietly bold statement piece), and Satya Embellished Hoop Earrings (beyond-basic hoops with an elongated shape and beaded detailing).


3 | Accessories are the secret to mom’s standout style

Sometimes it’s the last addition that creates an eye-catching look. Our favorite ways to master the art of accessorizing include the Elizabeth Gillett Cotton Tassel Scarf (a spellbinding, three-season scarf with playful tassel trim), Hat Attack Raffia Sun Hat (just right for work in the garden or working it at a garden party), and our Everyday Skinny Belt (this Italian-leather belt snazzes up jeans, dresses, and cardigans).


4 | Handbags, because moms carry lots of stuff


See that she totes all her essentials in style with options like the Buji Baja Woven Cross-Body Bag (a fun round bag in natural straw), Canvas Tote by Meanwhile Back on the Farm™ (a rain-or-shine must-have in waxed canvas), and Nayara Hobo Bag (a slouchy, Italian-suede hobo with lots of organized storage).


5 | Loungewear and some well-deserved R&R for mom

A mother’s role is a 24/7 job. Help her relax with delightful ways to downshift, like our Asian Wrap Batwing Kimono Robe and Asian Wrap Short-Sleeve Cropped Pajamas in pure organic Green Cotton. Finish the gift with a pair of EMU Mayberry Slippers in glamorously fluffy Australian shearling — and wrap things up with a cozy Wool & Cashmere Throw.


6 | Beautiful bedding to enhance mom’s beauty sleep

Give her beyond-basics like our 100% cotton Wrinkle-Resistant Trellis Sateen Bedding that is smooth right out of the dryer and is offered in a pretty, geometric print. Create her own personal haven with additional soft layers like our Isa Stonewashed Organic-Cotton Blanket for airy gauzy texture or the Improv Pieced Quilt for a modern, whimsical mix of vibrant florals and geometrics.


7 | Celebrate mom with unique home-décor pieces

Mom has a special touch, and she also appreciates special touches around the home. Demonstrate your love for mom with artful designs, like a Preserved Wreaths and colorful Garnet Hill Doormats) for the entryway or our Relaxed-Linen Table Collection and an Artisanal Vase to dress the table for a special meal.

Mother’s Day officially happens once a year, but any day is a great day to acknowledge mom and all the important women in your life. From all of us at Garnet Hill, we wish every mom a very happy Mother’s Day.
