Mother’s Day 2023 is on Sunday May 14th and it’ll be here in no time. Here’s a list of gift ideas that are perfect for the special women in your life, whether it’s your mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, best friend, or someone that has mothered and loved you. Don’t forget to share your favorites with your crew (as I plan to do.) I’ve checked out every single item in the 2023 Mother’s Day Gift Guide for Grownups and rounded up a bunch of discount codes and special offers. As always, If it’s not something worth spending my own money on, I would never recommend it.
Yes, it’s an $85 T-shirt but 20% of proceeds will be donated to Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.) Front of the shirt says “Gun Control Now” and the back says “enough.” Tees are ethically made with 100% organic cotton in a SMETA certified factory. The website says they run true to size but I recently purchased one and I think they run small. (I ordered size large.) I would recommend sizing up.
Salad season is upon us and I love these mini bottles of flavored artisinal olive oil from Brightland. Keep them together for a luxe gift or split them up and gift them individually. They make the perfect little thinking-of-you or thank you gift. The set includes mini bottles of:
– ARDOR olive oil infused with red chili peppers, jalapeno peppers, chipotle peppers, and paprika
– ROSETTE olive oil infused with garlic
– LUCID olive oil infused with lemon
– ARISE olive oil infused with basil
Send your choice of a beautifully packaged apple or mixed berry streusel pie along with a pie server and a personalized note. Pie will be shipped overnight for guaranteed freshness.
I swear I’ve tried dozens of travel bags but this one is a real winner. It hangs over the door, has waterproof compartments and is full of elastic straps to keep bottles upright. It comes in a bunch of colors and sizes (I have the medium) and it’s only $22.
I recently switched from a rabbit style wine opener to an electric and I’m never going back. At $22, this rechargeable electric wine bottle opener easily remove corks in seconds. It opens up to 30 bottles on a single charge. Simply place on top of your wine bottle, press a button, and tada, your wine is open and ready to serve.
Sure you can buy hair accessories at the supermarket but the ones from Kitsch are elevated and a lot more luxe. Plus they’re super affordable. My favorites are the heatless curlers, the claw clips and the microfiber hair towels. Shop with my link and you’ll get $10 off.
Give yourself a glow up. This creamy, dreamy highlighter is a buildable balm that elevates all your favorite features for an uplifting glow. Each light-catching shade is formulated with responsibly sourced mica for subtle sheen that’s shimmery, but not glittery. And because we like our makeup to do the absolute most, the formula is infused with hydrating skin-care ingredients. And the compact is refillable so you’ll save money when you repurchase.
I’ve ditched my clunky bag and wallet and fallen in love with this handy belt bag from Lululemmon. I love that I can wear it as a crossbody or a fanny pack and either way, it’s not slipping off my shoulder and tying up my hands. It’s no surprise why it’s so popular.
Also, you can find LOTS of other great gift ideas for grownups in my previous gift guides:
