Mother’s Day is now less than two weeks away (May 9, for those who are counting), but you still have time to get something to show Mom some appreciation. Below we’ve got seven picks for things that’ll tell her you’re glad she gave you life.
Stationed by Hand Shippou Notebook
A lot has happened lately, your mom may want to write some of it down. Whether that’s a tally mark of how frequently you and your siblings call or a sketch of a robin outside the window, she can do it all in Stationed By Hand’s Shippou notebook. Bound in a discharge printed Japanese indigo fabric and stitched up in Norwalk, Connecticut, the Shippou has 50 blank pages to fill with whatever suits her fancy. Bonus points if you pair it with one of Kiriko’s carved animal pens from the lead image.
Available for $38 at Kiriko Made.
Bridge & Burn Artifact Day Tote
Someday, we’ll be able to travel again. And your mom may be raring to get on the first train, plane, or bus loaded up with her Artifact Day Tote from Bridge & Burn. Made in USA from a water-resistant duck canvas, the Artifact has three roomy pockets and an open top for easy access.
Available for $98 at Bridge & Burn.
Siizu Fraser Pearl Earrings
Be the bane of all your siblings by getting Mom a pair of pearl earrings, you don’t have to tell them that it was for less than 50 bucks. Siizu’s Frasers are made from freshwater pearls with a strawberry glass bead and 14k gold plated hoops.
Available for $42 from Siizu.
Winter Session Canvas Planter
Did anyone get fewer houseplants this past year? Nope, didn’t think so. Help Mom get some of her plant children off the floor with Winter Session’s tabletop and hanging planters; made in Denver, Colorado from hefty 22oz. waxed canvas.
Available from $29 at Winter Session.
Kapital Paramax Bandana
Are there pics of Mom covered in mud at Woodstock? Is there a secret bag of “oregano” stashed away in the back of the spice drawer? Does the rear window of her car have so many bumper stickers that it’s a safety hazard? If so, she may appreciate the maximalist psychedelic aesthetic of the Paramax bandanas from Kapital. Inspired by German-American pop artist Peter Max, the 100% cotton bandanas are made in Japan and celebrate the upcoming Paralympic Games.
Available for $36 at Stag Provisions.
Billykirk No.426 Heart Keychain
Save Mom the grief of a heart tattoo with a heart keychain. Coming in a multitude of colors, these hearts are lovingly cut from full grain leather by Amish craftspeople and assembled in Billykirk’s workshop in Jersey City. There’s also the option to emboss your own personal message.
Available for $20 at Billykirk.
HNDSM Paris Candle
Skip the Chanel No.5 for something else fragrant and numbered from Paris. HNDSM’s Paris candle is a delicately layered scent with floral and amber notes that can be enjoyed for at least 50 hours of burn time, which is hopefully more than it took to deliver you.
