The LA Girl Gift Guide: 16 Mother’s Day Gifts They’ll Absolutely Love

What would we do without our loved ones? Even though we celebrate having these people in our lives every single day, why not make Mother’s Day even more special for the lovely ones that we cherish. If you’re stuck on what to get “mom” or any other loved one for Mother’s Day this year, have no fear, because here’s The LA Girl Gift Guide: 16 Mother’s Day Gifts They’ll Absolutely Love.

For the Sparkly One

Jewelry is a no brainer when it comes to giving Mom a gift, but personalized jewelry makes it  more special. One of our favorite Southern California-based jewelry brands, gorjana, launched three new products that any Mom would love. This dainty 14K gold “Mama” necklace would go with anything she wears. But if she needs a little shimmer in her life, you can’t go wrong with this diamond heart bracelet. It’s sweet and dainty for everyday wear. Also, we love that with every sale of  the “mama” necklace at LA stores and online, gorjana will give 10% to Baby2Baby, a national nonprofit that provides children living in poverty with basic necessities. gorjana plans to donate over $50K to Baby2Baby. We love that! P.S if you wanna do some in-person shopping, check out these jewelry shops in LA here.

For The Beauty and Wellness One

Glowing from the inside out is what we all love about Mom. So this year, give Mom a beauty boost with some these premium gifts.  First up, Benefit Cosmetics just dropped The POREfessional Hydro Pop and saving our skincare prayers have been answered. Niacinamide, Rose Hip Extract, and Fermented Camellia Flower Seed Oil, join forces in this heroic formula, smoothing, minimizing, and moisturizing your pores. For that body glow, Nopalera is a cruelty-free brand that uses ingredients and techniques that are native to ancient Mexican ritual and tradition. With the use of cactus fibers, prickly pear oil, and fine sugar crystals, their Dulce Goddess Collection will enhance her beautiful and healthy skin.

For after her morning or nighttime beauty regimen, she can read a daily affirmation from Intelligent Change. This set of Health and Wellbeing Affirmations is perfect for inspiring positive thoughts for her week.

For The Luxurious One

We all know those special people in our lives who like everything extra luxurious or boujee. Here are two gift ideas if you want to gift them something glamorous without breaking the bank. Badgley Mischka just launched their new Voyage Collection. The collection features two new scents – Cap D’Antibes and Château Vizcaya – uniquely designed to transport you to destinations far away. Cap D’Antibes is a trip to the Mediterranean with wisps of breezy Mediterranean citrus and white peach drift atop fig and jasmine. Or if she loves he ocean, gift her a trip to the north of Spain with Château Vizcaya. It has notes of tropical florals, coconut, and sea salt. And if your mom loves luxurious designers that offer functional handbags, then you can’t go wrong with Kate Spade, especially when it comes to their tote bags. This shoulder bag has enough space to hold your laptop, your wallet, and a light sweater, but is cute and compact. It’s perfect for running errands or remote work on the go, and it even comes with some hidden pockets inside the lining for jewelry and other valuables.


For The Party Host One

We all have one or two of these people in our lives. The ones who host the holidays, birthdays, and gatherings all year round! These gifts will be a good addition to the festivities and make throwing a party feel a little bit easier. First up, you can’t go wrong with replenishing Mom’s charcuterie board. Pick up this Shanik 18×12″ platter that’s large enough to hold meats, cheeses, fruit and nuts. You can also go for the splurge and surprise her with a multi-use coffee maker like his one from BRUVI. Their machine brews up to 40% more than standard coffee pods, and has a mobile app for scheduling brewing sessions remotely.

Whether going to the gym is their favorite pastime or if picking up tennis is in their near future, these TWO gifts are sure to make the active person in your life smile.First off, these running shoes from Lululemon are so comfy and cute for jogging on the treadmill or around the neighborhood. Because why can’t you work out and look good at the same time? And for an extra relaxing cool-down, gift mom this Toloco massage gun to alleviate muscle tension.
