Self-Care for Mother's Day
Finally...help a mom treat herself with self-care products! Some of my favorites are Non-Toxic Nail Polish (code eatingbyelaine gets 10% off!), makeup brush set, travel makeup bag, fragrance-free Self Tanner, towel warmer, the comfiest everyday seamless bra that is actually supportive and gives good shape (I have it in both colors), hydrating non-toxic lipstick, life-changing foot cream, or my favorite Natural Shampoo & Conditioner. I've been loving my new home air purifier and it has kept us healthier this year (discount automatically applied using this affiliate link). It has an UltraHEPA filter and filters out pollen, dust, mold, viruses, bacteria and pet dander.
I own this maxi dress in three patterns and get compliments whenever I wear it. It is so comfortable and I cannot wait to wear all three again this summer.
This is the best curling wand I've ever owned. It is ceramic and so efficient... it takes a third of the time of any other curling wand I've ever owned.
This crossbody tote is so durable and functional...and with three kids I use every bit of the space it offfers.
I just treated myself to these new running shoes and they are so comfy. I love all the fun colors they come in. I never go on a run without my earbuds and they would make the perfect gift paired together. You could also pair with this zip up which I have in two colors. And this is my go-to sports bra that is so comfortable and yet supportive - I wear running whenever it isn't in the wash or laundry basket.
For anyone who loves to nap or get cozy, I have and LOVE the Bliss Plush Throw (here's a slightly less expensive option). You could do a super plush robe or comfy, eco-friendly pajamas with a Jade Roller & Gua Sha Stone. These are best gifted with a coupon for a full afternoon of uninterrupted time...and maybe a funny tee shirt to reinforce some alone time (I totally just bought this for myself, haha).
This Easy Homemade Sugar Scrub is a great option because it's super easy to make and you can get little ones involved. Here is a video of how to make the homemade sugar scrub.
Cooking Gifts for Mother's Day
I would only recommend giving cooking equipment for Mother's Day if you know they love to cook and relax in the kitchen! I recently got this veggie chopper and it has been a total game changer in the kitchen. It drastically cuts down on prep time and because everything is cut the exact same size the veggies cook evenly. I love this Non-Stick & Non-Toxic Ceramic Cookware (10% discount automatically applied at checkout and up to 20% off for selected items that are part of their Mother's Day sale), and these Japanese Wooden Knives would elevate anyone's kitchen time. Nakano also makes incredibly beautiful and sustainable bamboo bowls and cutting boards that look gorgeous displayed. A high-quality Dutch Oven in her favorite color would make a perfect gift for anyone who loves to try new recipes. I've just recently started giving the air fryer a try again and love how it makes delicious, crispy veggies.
For someone who loves to entertain, I'd gift a beautiful round cutting board, pastry server with dome, wine/champagne chiller, wine preservation system or a sweet porcelain pie pan. I've had this ice cream maker for over two years now and use it all the time for homemade creamy ice cream. I love a classic cake stand with a dome, and I think these Crystal Wine Glasses are so elegant and understated
Mother's Day Gifts for Gardening
We recently started a home garden and it's been so much fun for everyone! If you're shopping for someone who wants to garden, try a Vertical Planter Bed or bigger Raised Garden Beds with a Starter Gardening Tool Set if they're new to gardening. I recently gifted this seed starter kit to a friend who started their first garden. My mom loves to tend to her indoor garden and I know she would go crazy for this small chic indoor watering can.
Mother's Day Gifts: Juice & Smoothie Lovers
The Breville Juice Fountain Centrifugal Juicer is THE BEST juicer around! Here is a video of me using it. Gift it with a Glass Tumbler, a large Glass Pitcher, or set of Glass Straws. My cookbook, Rock Your Blender, is a perfect gift for anyone who loves smoothies! I recently started testing blenders to find options at every price point. My KitchenAid blender is at the top of my list, although I've now tried and can recommend the Vitamix Explorian, the KitchenAid 400, the Beast Blender, and the Nutribullet to meet you at any budget! This is my all-time favorite protein powder (use code ELAINE20 for 20% off)
Mother's Day Gifts for Vegans
Making your own plant milks is an incredible way to reduce waste...and it tastes so much better than store-bought! I've been a longtime fan of this Plant-Based Milk Maker (ELAINE for $15 off!). It makes homemade nut and oat milks with the push of a button! I also recently tried the NUTR (code ELAINE for $10 off). It's incredible for smaller serving sizes or heated options, plus more compact for storing. Here is a video featuring some more of my favorite eco-friendly products.
Chocolate for Mother's Day
A box of Mid-Day Squares are my favorite snack right now! Use the code ELAINE15 for 15% off. My go-to is Hu Vegan & Paleo Chocolate Bars (ELAINE20 for 20% off), and they come in amazing flavors. I love giving chocolate with fresh fruit and a bouquet of flowers! For homemade chocolate treats, my favorites are Vegan Almond Butter Cups, Easy 5-Ingredient Vegan Peppermint Patties or Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles. Gift them in a nice jar with a ribbon and thoughtful note!
Sentimental Mother's Day Gift Ideas
I think this small and sweet heart picture frame is such a thoughtful gift. Frame a special photo of children, pets, an ultrasound, a special memory...gorgeous. For someone who doesn't live nearby, give a Digital Photo Frame! This necklace or bracelet would be a great gift from older kids, and for a new or expectant mother, I love this beaded bracelet. I also love a homemade gift. Nothing feels more special!
A classic option is a bunch or two of her favorite flowers gifted in this stunning vase.
