By Maggie Lovitt

With Mother’s Day less than a month away, you may be starting to panic about what to get your mother. Don’t worry, we have compiled a list of thoughtful gifts that will be a surefire way to pay homage to the special mothers in your life. Whether you’re looking to gift her with a new cookbook to help her discover new recipes, or you’re looking to help improve her next dinner party with new table linens, or you’re looking to help her embrace her love for Netflix’s Bridgerton, we’ve got something for everyone.

Gifts For Bridgerton Lovers

Bridgerton Two Tea Custom Gift

With the second season of Bridgerton arriving on Netflix last month, fans have been flocking to all of the fun and creative merchandise being marketed alongside the show. Why not treat your mother to this gorgeous custom tea set from The Republic of Tea. Choose from blends dedicated to Anthony and Kate, Simon and Daphne, and Mrs. Whistledown herself Penelope Featherington, or even grab some Bridgerton-themed honey.

$32 | The Republic of Tea

Bridgerton Divine Blush + Glow Trio: Love at First Blush

Does your mother love make-up? Does she love Bridgerton? Then perhaps she might be interested in this Bridgerton-themed blush trio from Sephora entitled “Love at First Blush.” It’s cute and practical and the perfect way to add a dash of Bridgerton flare to her life.

$52 | Sephora

La Rue 1680 Bridgerton Collection

If The Republic of Tea blends aren’t what you’re looking for this Mother’s Day, perhaps La Rue 1680’s Bridgerton Collection is the right pick for your mother. The kit features four of their bestselling flavors which are inspired by the fan-favorite Netflix series, including India Street Vanilla Chai, Italian Cream Earl Grey, Moroccan Mint, and Spring Berry Punch. La Rue 1680 has a variety of other blends, that might be the perfect addition alongside other teatime gifts.

$60 | La Rue 1680

The Bridgerton Series

If your mother just got into Bridgerton without reading the books, then perhaps this gorgeous collection of books is exactly what you need to grab for her! In fact, Lady Whistledown demands that you gift her this collection so she can prep for the highly anticipated third season. Provide her with the Vitamin String Quartet playlist featuring all of the best tracks from the series, and let her get swept up in Julia Quinn’s delectable period drama.

Gifts For Cocktail Lovers

NEFT Vodka

If you have a mother who loves a good cocktail, rest assured that our NEFT Vodka recommendation is taste-tested and Mom Approved. Not only is NEFT Vodka delicious, but the presentation of this Austrian-made liquor is unlike any other vodka on the market currently. It’s delivered in a barrel that is somehow very chic.

$37 | NEFT Vodka

The Sip Society

If the mother you’re shopping for is more of a wine connoisseur, then perhaps she might like The Sip Society, which is a luxury bi-monthly subscription box that features delicious sparkling wine. For just $60 every other month, you can treat your mother to a year-long experience to show her just how much you care about her! The subscription includes either one 375ml bottle or two 1845 ml bottles of sparkling wine. The Sip Society is a great way to test out new brands, explore different taste profiles, and discover a variety of new champagnes and sparkling wines.

$60 | The Sip Society

Savino Wine Carafe

Now that your mother is getting fancy with Sip Society every other month, perhaps you should improve her wine storage and preservation by picking up a Savino Wine Carafe for her. This wine carafe will help to limit how much oxygen gets into the wine and it will also prevent the wine from getting contaminated by odors from her refrigerator. What could be better than having a pretty presentation for your wine and a convenient tool for keeping your wine fresh? This is perfect for the woman who loves to entertain herself and her friends with a nice glass of wine. Not sure if the Savino Wine Carafe is right for you? Check out the full review here.

VinoAir Wine Aerator

With all of these wine-related gift options for mom, we would be remiss not to include this wine aerator that is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. The VinoAir Wine Aerator does everything: it delivers the perfect pour, eliminates frustrating wine drips, and completely aerates and oxidates your wine to maximize the flavor. This would also be the perfect bring-along on a Mother’s Day picnic or the next dinner party she hosts. There’s no need for fancy decanters when you can simply pour the wine and decant it in the process. We tested the VinoAir Wine Aerator to ensure it’s the right gift for you!

$17 | VinoAir Wine Aerator

Raising the Bar

If your mom isn’t big on drinking, perhaps Raising the Bar’s subscription box is the right gift for her. Besides, who doesn’t love getting an entire gift set in one parcel? Born out of frustration with the wildly limited mocktail options out there, Raising the Bar is a fantastic subscription box that caters to the alcohol-free lifestyle. If you don’t want to send a full-year subscription, they also have a one-time box to purchase. This is the perfect gift kit to start discovering delicious new zero-proof products with a sophisticated flavor profile.

$55 | Raising the Bar

Drinkmate Home Carbonation System

In the same vein as Raising the Bar, Drinkmate is a great gift for anyone, whether they love carbonated beverages like La Croix, Bubbly, or sparkling wine. The Drinkmate Home Carbonation System makes it easy to add carbonation to water, juice, liquor, and so much more with just the touch of a button!
