The last 12 months have been tough on everyone. But moms have borne the brunt of the stress between Zoom schooling, working, staying safe and keeping up with day-to-day tasks. So, this Mother's Day, make the mothers in your life feel extra special and pampered, honoring all that they do. Plus, since we're still in a pandemic, let's ensure these women have the goods to survive a little longer. These are the ultimate five gifts for Mother's Day 2021.
tenoverten X Love Kate Hand Repair Kate
Leave it to SI Swimsuit model Kate Bock to create a practical yet pampering Mother's Day gift. She has curated a tenoverten hand repair kit priced at $63. Products include hand repair serum, hand restorative cream and rose oil, and it comes along with a sweet note from Kate. "This year, I've been washing my hands more than ever, and I found some of tenoverten's products to become part of my daily routine for smooth, soft skin," she told us. "This tenoverten hand repair kit is a perfect gift for Mom, who could use a little self-care in her life when she's juggling a million things. Bring the spa to Mom this Mother's Day."
Super Star Diamond Stud Earring by Auvere
Mom was a superstar this past year. So, it seems only appropriate to honor that with Super Star Diamond Stud Earring from Auvere. The solid 22-karat gold earrings with a single center diamond for $425 are the perfect luxe gift that can still be worn every day. Not only will mom feel appreciated, but also that hint of sparkle is bound to stand out a bit on that next Zoom call. Feeling extra generous? Pair the studs with the Star Bright Ring with five dazzling little diamonds.
Objective + Gravity’s Beauty Sleep Set
If there is one thing mom needs more than anything else, it's sleep. Help her get some much deserved beauty rest with the new "Beauty Sleep" Set for $94.50, the first-ever brand collaboration between Objective + Gravity. It features sleep-focused wellness products -- Fast Asleep GABA x Saffron sleep chocolates by Objective and a weighted sleep mask by Gravity -- as well as the first-ever co-branded product, Objective + Gravity Dream Skin. The renewing nighttime facial serum with plant-based retinol-alternative bakuchiol, squalane and lavender, and Abyssinian essential oils is bound to help mom feel refreshed.
Patched and Sewn Sweatsuit
Sweats were the uniform of the past year and leisurewear isn't going anywhere any time soon. Thankfully, female-owned company Patched and Sewn has found an adorable way to elevate the sweats game. The team hand-dyes and then hand-sews patches to customize a look completely. Think mom's initials with cute graphics of her favorite activities in her favorite colors. It's all about making mom feel comfy and special. Bonus: You could get matching ones for the kids and make it a family affair. No wonder SI Swimsuit model Kathy Jacobs is a fan.
Passa Paa Fences X Rafi Nova Vegan Backpack
What better way to honor mom than by getting her a gift that's practical and supports other mothers as well? Fair trade adventure company Rafi Nova just launched a spring bag collection in collaboration with a collective of artisan women in Laos called Passa Paa. Together they support a social enterprise founded by two strong women (Pok and Heather) who want to elevate the skills of the Hmong and Lao artisans by creating textiles that have been passed from grandmother to granddaughter. The result is colorful pieces of art on backpacks ($172).
