Moms. We love them no matter what and we want to celebrate them come May. Every year there are gift guides that rely on all the old standbys: flowers, candles, cards. But what if your mom isn’t like all those other moms? What if you want something more specific and interesting for your more specific and interesting mama? We compiled a list of gifts, so no matter what she's like, you’ll be able to find your mom something perfect.
For the mom who loves Nancy Meyers movies
Get her the perfect white t-shirt so she can be just like one of Meyers’ elegantly understated leading ladies. Think Meryl Streep in It’s Complicated or Diane Keaton in Something’s Gotta Give. This will help her pretend she's actually in a beautiful rom-com kitchen somewhere in California when she's making pancakes with her husband on Sunday. Cue the Adele.
For the mom who never really gave up her 80s hair
So your mom never let her ’80s heyday go? This Amanda Uprichard bodysuit is the perfect combination of 2020 ease and sexiness with some borrowed-from-the-’80s color and shape. Who knew the shoulder-pads of her younger years could look so good?
For the mom who needs an update to her charm bracelet
If you think your mom needs a way to keep her grandchildren close to her heart that isn’t as obvious as a heart shaped charm with their initials on it, then how about something with their birthstones on it? Jeweler Dani Barbe makes beautiful pieces with semi-precious stones like ruby and amethyst that are both beautiful and cool.
For the mom who is a natural hostess
If you know that your mom is the type who will be itching to throw a cocktail party as soon as quarantine lifts, then treat her to a new outfit for the occasion. This Rachel Pally dress is laidback and floaty but also put together and summery. She’ll look stunning with a platter of blackberry margaritas.
For the mom who loves to travel
A big, light but sumptuous scarf is the secret to every good traveler’s wardrobe. If your mom is the jet-setting type, or you suspect she just might convert into one after so much time in quarantine, she’ll love this violet cashmere scarf from 360 Cashmere. The light purple color makes every outfit special, but is still neutral enough to go with anything, no matter the season.
For the mom who is really getting into essential oils
If your mom has just discovered the relaxing allure of a lavender scented bath or a eucalyptus scented room diffuser, go the next step and give her something that can take the luxury of essential oils to her face and body. This Saya facial oil is an Australian blend made of Argan, Jojoba, Sweet Almond, Macadamia, Evening Primrose and Coconut Oils to make mom’s skin even more beautiful. And it’s a gift you can feel good about—Saya’s line is plant based and cruelty free.
For the mom who always took you shopping
With stores closed, your mom might be lamenting the fact that the two of you can’t go shopping together. Give her the feeling of her favorite activity by sending her a personalized staycation box. She’ll receive a delivery of Jean Theory picks on her doorstep and it will feel just like a small boutique has popped up in her living room.
We’re also offering Mother’s Day Appointment Shopping if your mom happens to be in Charlottesville and you'd like to give her something fun to do this weekend. Sign mom up for private shopping that will come complete with flowers and a bottle of champagne by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling or texting us at 434.296.JEAN or filling out a fitting room ready form at this link.
