12 Great Gifts for Mom (and your Mother In Law, too!)
Updated: Mar 4, 2021
Are you about to marry to the one you love? You’re likely up to your ears in seating arrangements, cake tastings, and hair trials. You might even have gotten a small token of appreciation for your bridesmaids. However, did you remember to get something for the woman who has been with you through thick and thin...that gal who has been with you since day one, not to mention all of the planning and execution of your wedding...no, we don't mean your maid of honor; we mean your Mom. Get her a gift that shows you how much you care. And for good measure, don't forget to get something special for your future mother in law, too!
To my first best friend. For you, I am most thankful. For all the long talks we've shared, the advice you've given, the laughter and the tears,,,you've been right by my side. Thank you for helping me become the person I am today, and for setting a perfect example of the type of person I hope to become. I'm so lucky you're my Mom.
Your Mom gifts don't have to be over the top or extravagant. Try to find something that your mom or mother in law would love, but wouldn't necessarily buy for themselves. For example, choose a lush bathrobe that has her initials embroidered on the pocket. Or get her an overnight bag that she can use whenever she travels for the weekend. The idea is to give a little bit of luxury without the luxury price tag.
Another option is to choose something that is sentimental and ties in with your wedding, such as a photo frame with your wedding date inscribed on the bottom or a custom handkerchief and bracelet. Something sentimental that can serve as a forever reminder of your wedding day and all the wonderful memories.
For the mom who is always on the go, why not surprise her with a personalized Skinny Tumbler to stay healthy and hydrated during a busy day or so she can enjoying something a little more interesting after a long work week. We love these eye-catching tumblers because they are double-walled, and vacuum insulated keeping things hot or cold for 12 or more hours at a time!
We just know that she would truly appreciate having her me time at the end of each day. Let her relax, feel comfy and take some time to rejuvenate, ready for another busy day with silky Floral Garden Robe. We especially love that these robes can be customized with any name or initial in the front.
And of course, to tote it all around...this fabulous Canvas Weekender is the perfect bag for everything! Its incredibly durable, stylish and and wrinkle resistant, making it the ideal choice for travel, business, beach trips, and every day use.

If you want to make your mom feel high class, these gifts are the perfect choice for her! We just love this stunningly soft pashmina. It is such a classic addition to any outfit that can be worn so many ways. Whether she opts for the casual over the shoulder cover-up, as a cozy wrap, like a poncho, or worn around her neck as a traditional scarf, she will certainly look stunning when going out on the town! And the best part is, they are Monogrammed Pashminas with her initials to truly make it a one of a kind gift.
A lovely way to feel welcomed in your new family is with a personalized heirloom gift. This elegant Decanter Set would be perfectly paired with the wine served at your wedding. Just be sure to put your in law's names on the glasses and the year they were married on the box. Its a beautiful way to subtly say that like fine wine, love only improves with age.

We love to mix, match, and stack these Pyrite Token Stretch Bracelets to create a casual look that’s all your own. Choose a token that makes you think of mom and we guarantee that she will want to wear it as a daily reminder. Each bracelet, and there are so many to select from, is presented on a story card, highlighting the meaning behind each one, making it all the more special.

You're the light of her life, so why not light up her life with a luxury candle gift set? These NOMAD Wax Co. Candles are made with midwestern-grown pure soy wax.

We love these candles because they are never tested on animals and they feature a robust, consistent scent throughout burning time to continuously fill the space with enveloping fragrance. The best part is that even after the candle is gone, your mom still has a reusable metal or glass vessel, the minimal modern design looks as great as it smells, and will make her look like one of the hip, cool kids. Even if you’re not. (Trust us on this.)
