Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021

Find something special and unique for the moms in your life

May has arrived, and spring is officially in full-swing. If this is a surprising and slightly jarring wake-up call, I get you. It may have taken forever to get here, but somehow 2021 is full speed ahead, edging us closer to some semblance of normalcy while reminding us a lot is about to change.

The return of local businesses and in-person social gatherings might be dizzying for the calendar, but here’s another important reminder: it’s almost Mother’s Day. And while there’s never a bad time to tell our maternal figures “thank you,” there’s something extra fun about getting to spoil our loved ones on their special day (which, by the way, is Sunday, May 9).

If the gift-getting panic has started to set in, don’t worry! There’s still time to find a present that feels just right. From a quick surprise to hitting the motherlode, let this list help you make your deserving mom’s day.
