We all owe a lot to moms, and they don’t get recognized enough for their sacrifices—especially this year. On Valentine’s Day, why let partners be the only ones to show gratitude with thoughtful gifts? Below, we’ve rounded up Valentine’s Day gifts for every mom in your life to show her that you care for and appreciate her too.
For the forever young mama:
She’ll love the MyChelle Refining Sugar Cleanser that contains natural sugar to gently renew and refine skin. The marshmallow-smelling cleanser turns into a lather to leave her with fresh, smooth, hydrated skin. Peptides and plant extracts work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as an added bonus every mom can appreciate! ($19, mychelle.com).
For the homebody:
Deck her out in luxury when she slumbers. This Pour Moi Dusk Satin Pajama Set feels amazing against the skin. It’s so casual, she could probably get away with wearing it on Zoom calls too ($39, barenecessities.com).
For the mom who likes to look good:
Stila Shine Fever Lip Vinyl in Hot Pursuit, a pigmented, bright red lip gloss, will get your busy Valentine ready for work or play in seconds. While she wears it, argan oil and hyaluronic acid work to hydrate and make her pout look fuller ($24, stilacosmetics.com).
For the active mom:
She can rest assured that her precious Airpods are in good hands in this Elago Waterproof Airpods Case. The silicone material not only protects against scratches but also keeps water out, so splashes don’t do any damage ($15, elago.com).
For the mom who cares about her skin:
Now here’s a V-day gift that’ll last longer than a bouquet: the Instanatural Organic Rosehip Oil, a multiuse hydrating serum created from the fruit of a rose plant. Packed with fatty acids and vitamin A, it moisturizes skin, hair and nails, making fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles and scars less noticeable. Now she can get her glow on ($22, amazon.com).
For the fashionista:
A flash of red isn’t just stylish on the backs of high heels. It also makes earrings more exciting, as evidenced by these two-tone, Gold & Honey Inside Out Gold and Enamel Hoops in red ($125, goldandhoney.com).
For the romantic:
Express your warmest feelings for her in 75 to 500 words, and let professional calligrapher Rita Polidori O’Brien do her magic with this Scribe New York Personalized Love Letter. The letter arrives in heavy duty watercolor paper, and just for V-day, she’ll add small flourished, bouquet details at no extra charge ($50-$200, scribenewyork.com).
For the new mom:
Expectant moms deserve comfy threads because they’ll soon be spending a lot more time at home. She can wear this Storq Three-Piece Lounge Set, which includes a nursing-friendly tank, belted jacket and loose cropped pants, at 40 weeks, postpartum and beyond. That jacket is too cute to only wear indoors ($145, storq.com).
For the makeup collector:
Getting ready for a Zoom happy hour is so much more glamorous in front of this Glammy Ruby Dee Mirror. It’s framed by LED lights, the second best thing to natural lighting, so she can get an accurate look at her makeup, even in a dimly lit room ($99, glammy.com).
For the mom who lives far away:
Inside the Capsul Jewelry Envelope Locket Necklace is a pull-out letter that says “Love.” For an additional cost, the company will personalize the mini message inside by displaying a name, initials or a special date ($75, capsuljewelry.com).
For the wine lover:
Gift her these Aura Glass No-Spill Aerating Wine Glasses, and she’ll never have to worry about her favorite bordeaux tipping over on her living room table. Each glass spins on a stainless steel ball, so spillage is never a problem. The uniquely shaped container helps bring out flavor too; as it tilts, vino inside gets to “breathe,” resulting in a tastier drink ($50, thegrommet.com).
For the traveler:
We can’t think of a chicer way to travel with jewelry than with this Wolf Quilted Jewelry Travel Case. Inside this elegant, sleek leather zip-up are hooks for necklaces and bracelets, ring rolls and four compartments, plus a handy mirror ($72, amazon.com).
For the mom whose house always smells amazing:
Yes, it’s a splurge, but the Diptyque Baies Candle will burn for 60 hours, fill the room it’s in with the scent of roses and blackcurrant leaves, and, the glass, once cleaned out, can even be used as stylish storage for brushes or pens ($65 for 6.5 oz, nordstrom.com).
For the tea addict:
This Vahdam Blush Assorted Teas Gift Box, which includes three flavors—Sweet Himalayan Detox Green Tea, Saffron Masala Chai and Earl Grey Masala Chai—makes an impressive addition to her collection. Since the company sources the ingredients directly from tea gardens in India, their teas are as fresh and as delicious as possible ($25, amazon.com).
For the mom whose Valentine’s Day bouquet died too soon last year:
Cut to order and delivered straight to the consumer from farms across the U.S. and Latin America, the flowers from the Bouqs Company have incredible longevity. Compared to the flowers sold at retail that arrive much older and last less than a week, this company’s flowers will be just a few days old when they get to your recipient—and with proper care, can last a whopping two to three weeks ($54 for 24 roses, bouqs.com).
For the practical mom (with a sense of humor):
Her hot and cold drinks will stay at the ideal temperature inside this Not Vodka Rosé Glitter Bullet Water Bottle. Thanks to its innovative copper technology, it impressively keeps water cool for 30 hours and hot for 12 hours ($50, notvodka.com).
For the mom who binge-watches her favorite shows and movies on her tablet, laptop or smart phone:
To enhance her viewing experience, give her the option of streaming shows to her TV with the Roku Premiere. This addition to the Roku family of devices will allow her to stream over 500,000 movies and TV episodes, plus live sports, and news, across over 1,000 channels, including Netflix and YouTube TV—and watch them in 4K quality ($38, amazon.com).
For the mom who NEEDS a relaxing bath:
By creating an addictively calming, skin-softening, sweet-smelling soak, this Fizz and Bubble Bath Fizzy Milkshake in Raspberry Cream may just inspire her to take one real soon ($15, fizzandbubble.com).
For the mom who loves to get glam:
Containing 21 pigmented shades in various finishes, the travel-inspired limited edition Urban Decay Born to Run Palette will allow her to experiment with endless looks, from natural to smoky—so she won’t have to reach for any other palette most days ($49, nordstrom.com).
For the tech nostalgic:
This Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera provides immediate (photographic) gratification to moms who love taking snapshots but would rather not spend an hour trying to learn about digicams ($56, amazon.com).
For the mom who always has a hectic morning:
She can enjoy her daily morning cup of tea or instant oatmeal even sooner using this BLACK+DECKER 1.7 Stainless Steel Electric Cordless Kettle, which cuts boiling time in half and shuts off on its own. As we all know, every extra minute counts! ($43, amazon.com)
For the mom with little kids:
Made with durable 100 percent cotton heavyweight fleece, no-stretch rib cuffs, a double-lined hood and reinforced elbow patch, this American Giant Classic Full Zip in Black Amber is comfortable and built to last—even through her toddler’s constant pulling and tugging ($84, americangiant.com).
For the minimalist:
This Rebecca Minkoff Wallet on a Chain in Berry, which can carry all her cards and cash, is a stylish upgrade to her wristlet and can be worn as a cross body bag ($158, amazon.com).
For the bookworm:
Although she may have gone digital, an Amazon Kindle Voyage Case Book Cover Style, like this one with the cover of Pride and Prejudice, reminds her of the good old days ($30, amazon.com).
