Mother’s Day is always a special time for us, as it’s a day to celebrate so many inspiring and beloved women in our lives. As we grow and mature, we also realize this is a time to recognize not just our mother (although we make sure to do so!) but also other mother-like figures in our lives. These women include such people as our grandmothers and family friends who helped to mold and encourage us from childhood and beyond. So, today, we encourage you to get excited for Mother’s Day – no matter who it is you’re celebrating – and find a Mother’s Day gift for your recipient that is functional, sophisticated and thoughtful.
Not to mention, we’re also sharing two of our favorite gift styling tips that we absolutely love using regardless of the holiday. Read on, friend, and get inspired to find meaningful gifts to the women who mean the most this May. ♡

2022 Mother’s Day Gift Guide
As usual, we like to customize our gift guides as much as we can to fit your unique mom as best as possible. Therefore, once again, we’re breaking down our Mother’s Day Gift Guide into 5 categories: The Homebody, The Home Chef, The Hostess with the Mostess and the Sustainable Savant.
But, before we jump into each category, we’re going to first talk about the perfect foundation for each and every category.
Mother’s Day Gift Styling Tips
#1: Start with a Woven Basket
The foundational basket is not only a convenient way to nestle all those goodies together, it’s also a multi-functional piece. Well after Mother’s Day, a woven basket can be used in a variety of ways, from stylish storage to the foundation to a floral arrangement. (Psst! Click here for the Instagram Reel that shows you how to transform a basket into a vase!)
For a foundational gift basket, start by determining the size you’ll need. This is completely dependent on the items you plan to place inside the basket. So, once you take stock of those gifts, find a basket that suits your needs. We recommend going with natural hues with woven textures to ensure the basket will not only blend seamlessly into any decor, it’ll also add a touch of textural interest to any space.
#2: Use Textiles in Place of Tissue Paper
Basket Styling Tip: When using a woven basket as a base for your gift, opt for an organic, approachable look by adding a textile that can effortlessly drape out of the vessel. Think of it this way: your textile, such as a throw blanket, serves the same aesthetical purpose as tissue paper would, but it’s also an intentional gift in and of itself.
Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide
When it comes to The Homebody Mom, there’s one word that guides us with our gifts for her: cozy. Encourage your homebody mom to get comfortable in her own space with items that bring warmth, comfort and simple luxury.
Bring warmth: Offer this Amber Bergamot Natural Soy Jar Candle to gift an enticing blend of sweet amber, warm vanilla and zesty citrus.
Offer Comfort: Our Woven Cotton Tasseled Throw Pillow in Grey allows your mom to get comfortable in her favorite place. The unique tied tassel detail adds visual interest, and a soft grey hue allows this piece to blend with her current decor.
Gift simple luxury: If your homebody mom loves to relax with a hot mug of tea, this gift is a must-have. Our Gold Tea Tongs offer a carefully crafted slot for a tea bag string, ensuring your mom never loses another tea bag in hot water again. When she’s done steeping her tea, simply capture the bag around the tongs and squeeze the extra water for perfect tea every time.
The Hostess with the Mostess
As we’ve shared before, our Mimi is very much so our Hostess with the Mostess. She lives to entertain friends and family and finds complete joy in serving up delicious bites and engaging in meaningful conversation. If the special mom in your life is anything like our grandmother, she’ll absolutely love these hosting essentials.
Marble Serving Tray with Brass Handle
This unique and stunning piece exudes a subtle sophistication when hosting in your home. Use this serving tray to display simple panini wraps, as you see here, or use for showcasing small pastries and other bite-size offerings.
The Perfect Pairing: You simply cannot go wrong with gifting a hostess a charcuterie board with a set of cheese knives. This timeless duo sets the stage for delicious cheese boards to be shared with loved ones in a casual yet elevated way. We love these Gold & Rattan Wrapped Cheese Knife Set along with our Marble Serving Tray with Square Handle for an unexpected layer of visual interest.
The Home Chef
For The Home Chef mom, we like to think about those special touches that she’d appreciate in her kitchen. From warm accents to functional pieces she never knew she needed, these home chef staples have your baking and cooking mom written all over them.
Marble Double Spoon Rest: With a unique double-spoon design, this stunning piece will keep any kitchen clean from sauces, gravies, and anything else your mom is cooking up in her favorite place in her home! Carved from marble, this tool elevates any space with a touch of subtle elegance.

Matte Brass Measuring Spoons: This set of six individually sized measuring spoons offer style and function for your favorite Home Chef. A matte brass finish warms up any kitchen space and stainless steel material gives these tools the durability expected by someone who loves to spend time preparing delicious homemade meals.
Acacia Wood Tapered Rolling Pin: This piece has a touch of vintage charm with superior functionality compared to traditional rolling pins. Crafted from acacia wood, this baking must-have will be appreciated by anyone who likes to spend time whipping up baked goods in the kitchen.

“Super! I love this small rolling pin. It is large enough to do a pie shell but small enough to roll out 5” pita dough. Wish I had this sooner!” -Denise C.
The Sustainable Savant
Does your mom care about the environment and is often drawn to an eco-friendly lifestyle? We’ve got you covered! While crafted from sustainable materials, these pieces are also hyper-functional with a sophisticated aesthetic.
In the kitchen: This Chambray Trivet in Stone is crafted in India with 100% recyclable stone cotton weave and natural white accents, keeping your surfaces protected from hot serveware while also elevating any space with its subtly sophisticated style.

Gift Earthy Tones: Our Olive Green Pitcher and Serving Bowl, both made from recycled glass, offer the hues of nature to the special mom in your life. Best part of these pieces? Due to their recycled glass material, no two pieces are exactly alike, meaning your gift will be one-of-a-kind – just like her!
A Mother’s Day Gift: The Gift of Presence
Finally, when deciding on a thoughtful gift for the special mother figure in your life, remember that often the gift of your presence is gratefully appreciated, as well. So, we encourage you to put down the screens, pull up a seat and engage with your loved ones this Mother’s Day. Because, as mothers ourselves, we know that time with our little ones is precious, and we hope that even when they’re grown and raising their own families, they’ll still make time for us – to connect, to engage, and to be together on this special day of the year.
Happy Mother’s Day, friend!
