Beyond Mom: Gifts for All Mother Figures

All around us and throughout our lives, there are special women who have cared for us with a nurturing heart, provided words of comfort and advice, and watched us grow. From Grandma, to Godmother, to Sister, neighbor, and best friend, honor and celebrate all the special women in your life. We make it easy with this simple gift guide of ideas for every personality and lifestyle.

For the Garden Lover

If gardening is one of her favorite pastimes, our Garden Days Hat & Shears set will entice her to spend more time doing exactly what she loves. Whether she’s trimming florals or relaxing with a drink in hand, the Aspen Copper Bird Feeder will invite the sweet sound of songbirds to keep her company. For the garden party host, try a fresh wreath like our Spring Green Succulent Wreath or Fresh Herb Wreath.

For the Graceful Intelligent

She’s the type of woman who you’ve always admired for her wise advice and delicate diplomacy. Her style is understated and elegant. Wise Women is a book of portraits that honors and praises just her type—the insightful, beautiful and courageous. In another tribute to female strength and beauty, Regarding Women is a collection of black and white portraits of noteworthy women who have made their mark on the world. A notebook or journal is a great way of saying you respect her thoughts, and our Silvered Filigree Hinged Journal will allow her to record them in style. You might also consider a Cashmere Scarf—it’s classic and chic, and comes in a variety of colors to suit her taste.

For the Woman Who Deserves Deep Relaxation

Pamper her with the Indulgent French Rose Spa, a set that includes delicate rose fragranced shower gel, moisturizing body crème, and bath salts with a natural sea sponge and rose flavored candies. The Lavender Fields Spa Crate features a moisturizing hand crème, bar soap, solid perfume, and a glass jar candle in the scent of relaxation. Allow her to dim the lights with Amethyst Tealight Cups or our exclusive Villa Candela to set the mood.

For the Sweets Lover

Delight her sweet tooth with Heart Windowpane Cookies, sugary sweets filled with raspberries and baked with love. If she prefers to do the baking herself, our Meringue Book & Cookies combines chocolate chip and vanilla meringue cookies in a hand crafted wood crate with a hardcover book of dessert recipes—from cookies, pavlova, pies and tarts to silky frostings and creams. For the woman who already has a magical hand for desserts, try a Silver & Bleu Tiered Serving Stand or Daisy Cupcake Pedestal so she can serve them in style.

For the Free Spirited Traveler

She’s the woman with wanderlust, a true adventurer. A Bohemian Parasol is one of a kind, and it’s vibrant colors and tassels will bring the exotic close to home. Inspired by Mexican textiles and exotic journeys, she can tote the Adelita Handbag anywhere—home or on any of her journeys. If she’s traveling, send her with the “Loved” Circle Necklace, a reminder of her value and worth to those who love her back at home.

For the Francophile

Bring Paris to her with our Pâtisserie Chocolat Jar & Nonpareils, heavenly chocolate sweets with rainbow-colored sprinkles. Parisienne Dessert Plates will let her serve tea treats with French flair. French Dot Pajamas will send her to bed with sweet dreams of romantic walks on Seine.

For the New or Soon-To-Be Mother

A Motherhood Birthstone Necklace is a sweet way to keep her new little one close to heart. A truly sentimental gift, she can add a small birthstone charm for each child. If she’s a new mother, you know how much she values her sleep. A comfy set of pajamas like our Queen Bee Pajamas or Peony & Citron Pajamas may not keep the baby asleep through the night, but it will certainly help her rest better when she gets the rare chance.
