The Mother's Day Gifts Shape Editors Are Buying for Their Moms
Spring may be in early days, but Mother's Day is right around the corner, falling on Sunday, May 9th — so you may want to jot that down and start shopping right now. Procrastination can be a serious buzzkill when it comes to thoughtful gift giving, and while Amazon is an amazing source for presents (especially the last-minute kind, thanks to 2-day shipping for Prime members), you might have your sights set on something handmade from Etsy or from a small, female-founded business, and should take shipping delays into consideration.
Whether you're spoiling your mom, grandmother, aunt, partner, sister, or any other heroines in your life, you're not going to want to forget this Mother's Day (or send a belated gift) — especially since it's been a year where mothers have supported us as nurses, teachers, and even as landlords (for those of us who crashed with parents during quarantine). And with the vaccine rollout, many will be reunited with their moms on Mother's Day after a year of being apart; however, for others, it still might not be possible to celebrate Mother's Day with friends and family. Either way, the best Mother's Day gifts will show your love and appreciation.
While a handwritten card, bouquet of flowers, or brunch outing might be your usual go-to when it comes to Mother's Day festivities, selecting a special gift that speaks specifically to your mom will truly make her smile. Keep scrolling for the best Mother's Day gifts Shape editors have choosen for the leading ladies in their lives. (Related: I Gave My Mom This Sex Toy, and It's Changing Her Life)
