Become the "favorite" with these Mother's Day gift ideas

A custom L.L.Bean Boat & Tote. Not only does it say “I love you” but it says “I made you something that took extra thought.”

Break out the wallet with a Chan Luu Cashmere & Silk scarf from Bliss for Mom. You’re her new favorite child! It’s a cashmere-acle!


This French Pink Body Mud from 2Note Perfumery is like giving her a day at the spa – but it’ll happen at home. This wonder potion will exfoliate her for beach season and make her look 20 years younger. Or at least feel rejuvenated.

These super sweet necklaces from Turtle Love Co. come in either elephant or duck form, and you can choose from 1 to 3 baby elephants or ducklings to help represent Mom’s real-life brood.


Let’s be real. Every Mom wants a nice rack for Mother’s Day. Luckily this one is of the spice-nature and 50% of the purchase price is donated to Breast Cancer Research.  The set comes with 10 spices in magnetic jars for easy storage.

Hope you all at the very least tell Mom how much she means to you this Sunday!
