Meaningful Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Every Mother’s Day is special, but perhaps it will be even more so in 2021. In the past year, we’ve grown to especially cherish and value our family members—particularly if we haven’t been able to see them in person—and this is a time to celebrate those special bonds. Your mother deserves a gift of exceptional quality, one that she can enjoy and use for years. Here are some ideas for good Mother’s Day gifts that will truly show how much you care. 


  • A luxurious sheet set

Most moms probably wouldn’t spend the money to buy high-end sheets for themselves, so why not spoil your mother with a gift that is both beautiful and practical? She’ll feel pampered every night when she goes to sleep in sumptuously soft sheets. Elegant Strand sheet sets are known for their distinctive European style and sensibility. Select the classic, crisp, goes-with-everything white Saint Moritz set, or opt for sheets with a sophisticated color band such as the Monte Carlo. These sets are crafted from 100% extra-long, extra-fine combed cotton for exceptional comfort your mom will love.

  • A portrait

A group family photo is a favorite sentimental gift for mom. Take the concept even further this year. Give your mother a painting of your family, her grandkids, her beloved pet or even a self portrait. There are many services online that will produce an oil, watercolor or acrylic artwork based on a photo you submit, or commission a local artist to do the job. It will be a timeless treasure for her.


  • A stunning home decor piece

A decorative accessory for the home that doubles as a striking work of art is a unique Mother’s Day gift. Elegant Strand features the John-Richard collection of distinctive home decor. Choose from picture frames, vases, bowls and more; we suggest these sculptural spheres that look right at home on a bookshelf, credenza or end table.

  • Subscription boxes

The best Mother’s Day gifts speak to your mother’s interests, hobbies and passions. Subscription boxes are available for just about anything—from cooking to gardening to fitness and more. Purchase a subscription for your mother, and she’ll receive a themed box of gifts on a monthly or quarterly basis. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.


  • A set of plush towels

This is another ordinary household object that you can elevate with a sense of elegance. We make our towels with fine Egyptian cotton. That makes them equally thick and absorbent, yet also light. Choose a classic white or one of our soothing colors, and put together a complete set of towels, from wash cloths to bath sheets. This is a great gift for Mother’s Day because she can use the towels over and over again. You can also pair our towels with luxury bath products to allow your mother to create an at-home spa retreat in her bathroom whenever she’s ready.

  • A wellness package

Give your mother the gift of good health with an extravagant wellness gift. Does she love tennis? Invest in gear and a set of tennis whites. If she has a yoga practice, buy her a mat, some yoga towels and a flowing wrap she can wear to and from the yoga studio. For a real splurge, book a weekend stay at a wellness resort where she can relax and recharge.
