We’re not saying that Mother’s Day gifting will spark a sibling competition … but we’re not not saying that, either. So, here are six gift ideas to secure your spot as Mom’s favorite this Mother’s Day.
Exclusively for Prime members in select ZIP codes.
1. The Gift of Relaxation
Keep Mom in a chilled-out, “wow my kids are amazing” mood by honing in on the sense of smell. Our Whole Foods Market Mini Ball Diffuser fills up any room with an array of refreshing scents — like peppermint or eucalyptus — you can find in stores. If Mom’s more into hand-held aromatherapy, then the 365 by Whole Foods Market Blooming Rose Essential Oil Roll Ons are the ticket.
Candles are a proven ambiance-booster, and we’ve got the sweet-smelling selection Mom needs. Try the Paddywax Wabi Sabi Amber & Smoke Ceramic Candle or the Mrs. Meyer’s Soy Lavender Candle.
Round out the relaxing vibe with a bouquet of peonies from our Floral department. Hurry, these peonies are only here for the month of May, and they just so happen to pair perfectly with our 15-stem bunch of tulips that Mom will adore.
2. Mom-Approved Skin Care
Put together a gift-worthy skincare trio with Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream, Soothing Cleansing Milk and Facial Toner. Rich and luxurious Rose Day Cream is made for delicate skin while Soothing Cleansing Milk is ideal for daily cleansing and makeup removal. Then add Facial Toner to support skin’s natural processes of cleansing and renewal while helping to minimize the appearance of pores.
3. Best Brunch Ever
Sometimes, the best gifts are experiences (especially ones that are edible), so kick off Mom’s day with brunch at home. Some ideas to get you started: Pick up a rich, flavorful cheesy quiche like our Crustless Quiche Florentine or Tomato Mozzarella Basil Quiche. Each has a tender, buttery crust filled with cage-free eggs. Plus, these flavors are only available this spring, so pounce on the chance now. Prefer to cook? Snag some 365 by Whole Foods Market Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix and create an elegant, epic waffle breakfast. Need toppings? Start with 365 brand Organic Dark Maple Syrup, and let your taste buds’ imagination run wild from there.
Wrap up brunch with our Berry Chantilly Cake. And don’t forget to say cheers with beautifully balanced Ste. Venture Provence Rosé or an Elderflower Rosé Spritzer.*
4. A Little Something Sweet
Satisfy Mom’s sweet tooth with a gift box of French-style macarons. They’re delicate with the perfect crunch and a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth middle. Pick out a few of Mom’s favorite flavors, then complete the dessert plate with a few cartons of Driscoll’s Sweetest Batch Berries, which set an entirely new standard for how sweet berries can be.
5. At-Home Spa Day Basket
Start with a Pacha Rosewater Classic Froth Bomb, which is handcrafted with rose water and Peruvian pink salt and will fizz while releasing a moisturizing, latte-like froth. Then add Pacha Almond Goat’s Milk Bar Soap, a sweet-smelling blend made with goat’s milk and almond oil, and Pacha’s French Lavender Whipped Soap. And you’ll need face masks, of course. Andalou Naturals has a wide variety like Instant Brighten & Tighten Hydro Serum, Instant Hydration Hydro Serum and Instant Clarity Argan Oil & Blue Clay Face Mask. Complete the spa basket with Aura Cacia Organic Shea Nut Oil, a lightweight oil that absorbs easily to nourish, soften and moisturize skin and hair.
6. A Bottle of Bubbles
If your Mom is a wine aficionado, you can’t go wrong with Jacques Bardelot Brut Rosé Champagne, which has elegant bubbles and aromas of raspberry and red currant.* It’s the perfect start to any get-together, but it’s ideal for a rich dinner like creamy risotto, smoked salmon or duck.
