Best Mother's Day Gifts of 2019
- 1. "Q&A a Day for Moms: A 5-Year Journal," $12 (originally $17), Amazon
This five-year journal helps to capture those moments that seem to fly by. With a page dedicated to every day of the year, it prompts parents to answer questions like, "What was the best hug you had this week?" and "What interests your child lately?" Moms don't have to do much, just write down one simple sentence every day, and at the end they'll have a journal full of half a decade worth of memories.
- 2. Lovepop 3D Cards, $13, Lovepop
If you were planning on sending Mom a greeting card this year, why not try one of these beautiful 3D creations? Inspired by the Asian art of sliceform kirigami, these intricate pop-up cards are nice enough to display in the home, and they come in creative designs like a family of koalas or the "mother of dragons."
- 3. The Mug, $36, East Fork
East Fork, a pottery company based in Asheville, North Carolina, launched this mug in mid-March, and every time it's been restocked, it sells out within the day. The popular design took over a year to develop (in part because the company wanted to make sure the handle was just right), and it's quickly become one of East Fork's most popular products. It's the kind of piece Mom will treasure for years and use every day.
- 4. Alidia Ring, $44, BaubleBar
Not only is the Alidia Ring BaubleBar's best-selling ring, but it's also a celebrity favorite. Julia Roberts was recently spotted wearing the rings in multiple colors, stacked on top of each other for an effortlessly cool effect. When it launched on the site last spring, it sold out in three days and racked up a waiting list of over 10,000 people. It was so popular the brand decided to release it in a ton of new colors, for a total of nine possible designs.
Mini Alidia Ring, $44, BaubleBar
The newest addition to the Alidia Ring family is the Mini. According to the company, fans were clamoring for a thinner version of the ring so they could stack multiple colors together. BaubleBar delivered. The Mini Alidia Rings launched just last month.
- 5. Lovebox Spinning Heart Messenger, $100, UncommonGoods
If you're looking to stay connected with a long-distance parent or grandparent, Lovebox is the answer. The stylish box features an acrylic heart that spins when a message has been received. It's perfect for grandparents who might not be comfortable with text messages — to read the message, all one has to do is open the top. The screen will then display the sweet message reminding Grandma how much you care.
- 6. Marama Personalized Disc Necklace, $36, GLDN
Delicate and personalized jewelry are among some of the most popular trends when it comes to accessories. This necklace is both. Each piece is handmade in La Conner, Washington, so it's a totally unique gift for Mom. You can choose between gold, rose gold and silver, and we love the idea of layering a few necklaces emblazoned with each kiddo's name. We're sure Mom will love keeping them close to her heart.
- 7. Rothy's Shoes, $125-$165, Rothy's
It seems like every mom we know wants Rothy's for Mother's Day, and we have a feeling mom-to-be Meghan Markle might have something to do with it: The Duchess of Sussex was spotted wearing a pair of Rothy's on tour in Australia early in her pregnancy.
These shoes don't just look good though; they do good, too. They're made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and have repurposed over 29 million plastic bottles to date. They're also machine washable, so Mom will be able to wear them for years. The newest collection, called Amped Up Earth Tones, includes a loafer, flat, pointed flat and slip-on sneaker, so there really is something for everyone.
- 8. Landon Carryall Bag, $185, Dagne Dover
We've seen these neoprene bags all over lately and for good reason. Launched in 2017, the Landon Carryall Bag from Dagne Dover is the ultimate in organized chic, with pockets for a water bottle and laptop, a separate bag for shoes, and an attached pocket for knickknacks. It comes in five sizes to fit any task Mom might take it to, and the company just launched seven new colors for spring.
