Beauty Chocolate, Good Music + Great Scents: Our 2021 Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day is coming up on May 9th and we know more than one mom this year whose only request for Mother’s Day is alone time. After all that most mothers have been through this year — from new work from home realities to surprise home-schooling or even first-responder duties — we’d say she’s earned quite a bit of that.
Whether you’re planning to send your baby mama on a night away for some room service, bubble-bathing and a full night of uninterrupted sleep or not, these ideas below will give her something to savor and unwrap as your family celebrates the matriarch in your life…
Carriere Freres diffusers As much as we love a good candle, we go through them way too fast! We’re spending so much time at home lately and we’ve fallen in love with reed diffusers. Carriere Freres makes an array of brilliantly clean scents, including Mom’s Day appropriate Rose Menthe, an intoxicatingly fresh scent that smells as much like real roses as any scent we’ve tried. Scent can truly set the tone at home and give the mom in your life a bit of subtle uplift from day to day. The packaging is a thrill to unwrap and children can help to select from the array of beautiful scents for mom’s office or bedroom. SHOP NOW

If your home isn’t fully wired for sound, high-quality Bluetooth speakers like these can be a total game-changer. Think family dance nights or music that flows from kitchen to dining room with ease. The new SONOS Roam is perfect for a deskside or in-kitchen speaker that can transform a stale environment with her favorite tunes. SHOP NOW
Helena Quinn silk robe This L.A. designer specializes in sustainably made silk pieces — and your mama (or wife!) has likely earned a few of these pieces through the year.
