Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13.
Not sure what to get mom? Here are some unique and affordable gift ideas for mom, your wife or grandmother or other special mother-figure in your life.
The natural look
If mom is into earth tones and organic, nature-made materials, look for unique, handmade pieces, such as tribal- and nature-inspired jewelry.
For meditating moms
If mom is the spiritual type, consider getting her a piece of jewelry that’s airy and transparent. Think halo and circular shapes as a way to evoke a protective halo; “suspended” pieces — crystals suspended in seemingly “gravity-defying structures” — and silver metal pieces with lightweight elements to create balance.
Birthstone charm necklace
A necklace with her birthstone or those of all her children, gathered in one elegant necklace is a truly unique and thoughtful gift. Take it to the next level with charms made of crystals, and a sterling silver or gold chain.
Black and white
If mom has a cool, edgy style, consider getting her a piece of black and white jewelry seen on the runways at the Paris Fashion Week shows. Think Art Deco–inspired jewels, enamel, and silver or white gold with rhodium effects.
Brighten her day with bright colors
Jewelry doesn’t have to be conservative and stuffy. This Mother’s Day, brighten mom’s life with a piece of jewelry in fun and vibrant colors she will appreciate and enjoy.
Classic pearl earrings
If mom is a timeless beauty, show her your love with a pair of classic, always-in-fashion pearl earrings.
Florals for spring
If mother loves flowers — and what mom doesn’t — instead of getting her a bouquet of flowers that will inevitably fade and die, get her something that will truly last, such as a beautiful floral-inspired necklace or pair of earrings, floral rings, ear cuffs, or hair piece.
Give mom a mother’s necklace featuring the silhouette of a mother and child and you’ll be giving her a unique piece from the heart that she’ll be sure to cherish. The image is simple yet at the same time iconic, and will be a great accessory with a number of outfits, or an everyday piece.
If mom has a glamorous side, get her a pair of big and bold statement earrings in whatever colors and styles she’s fond of. They’re great to spruce up springtime outfits, from simple white shirts to intricate X-inspired necklines.
Mothers deserve gifts that are as unique as they are. Customize a personalized bracelet for her with a message of love or faith. Styles range from gold and silver to leather, depending on her taste.
Thanks to their appearance at the Oscars, chokers and other statement necklaces continue to be a great look for spring. When mom dresses for warmer weather — give mom a mother’s necklace featuring the silhouette of a mother and child and you’ll be giving her a unique piece from the heart that she’ll be sure to cherish.
The quest for wellness is inspiring technology companies to come up with more feminine-looking and feeling devices for women to wear when working out, and throughout the day. The simple rubber strap is moving out in favor of more ornate fitness wearables, from nature-inspired leaf designs to Rolex-looking smart watches.
