It happens. May has arrived, and with it some sunshine, a little outdoor brunch action, and Mother’s Day! If your getting-full-already social calendar means you haven’t found a gift yet – don’t worry. We’ve put together some beautiful gifts that will still arrive in time for the big day. Here's our Mother’s Day shortlist.
1. Entertaining Beautifully
For the mom who loves to entertain (or who likes to keep their coffee table looking chic), this stunning new book from Aerin Lauder is a must. It has entertaining ideas for more than 20 celebrations, spanning a year’s worth of gatherings including spring and summer parties. If your Mom’s social calendar is busier than yours (guilty) she will love the tips in this one.
2. Packable Straw Hat
For the mom who loves to be outdoors this summer, this large straw hat is a summer wardrobe MVP. From morning walks to lunches outside and time in the garden, she’ll be thanking you each time she wears it. The best thing about this style is that it is packable, too, so she can fold it up and take it on vacation without worrying about it getting crushed.
3. Travel SPF Beauty Set
If your mom is always telling you to apply sunscreen, she will be super impressed with this set of mini-size beauty products from cult brand Drunk Elephant. The set features some of their best-selling skin care picks, including a jelly cleanser, facial oil, SPF 30 sunscreen, a multivitamin eye cream, and a peptide cream. If your mom’s summer plans include taking out her collection of large pool floats she will love drifting around the pool knowing she’s protected from the sun.
4. Colorful Wine Glasses
For the mom who likes a glass of wine or two, these thick-stemmed wine glasses will be the perfect addition to her summer table. They come in three pretty shades and can hold a generous pour of her favorite vino. The best part? They can go straight into the dishwasher, meaning less time cleaning up and more time on her favorite heart shape pool float.
5. French Market Basket
For the mom who dreams of a summer in Provence, a traditional French market bag makes a dreamy (and useful!) Mother’s Day gift. Big enough to hold a towel, sunglasses, magazine and gold heart shape float, this straw tote is the perfect size for a day at the beach. From quick trips to the store to a picnic in the park, this is the summer bag she’ll reach for again and again.
6. Summer Sandals
For the mom who likes a summer stroll, a cute pair of slide sandals makes a thoughtful gift. With pretty cutout details and a padded footbed, these will take mom from the pool to dinner and everywhere else. With a selection of colors to choose from, we think the gold would be perfect for showing off tanned toes and a summer pedi.
7. Pool Floats for Adults
For the mom who likes to research the best pool float brands, and who has more pool floats for adults than for the kids, we recommend styling her Mother’s Day with a little love from LÔTELI. If you can’t quite see her on a flamingo float, a clear pool float from our new collection is a great option for the mom who likes to keep her pool looking stylish. These extra strength pool floats are equally at home as a beach party float as they are just drifting around the pool. Minimal and chic, they will look amazing all summer long.
Whether this Mother's Day is a time for celebration, for honoring a memory, or for recognizing your own strength, we hope this guide inspires you. Happy Mother’s Day from the LOTELI team!
