Sure, what mom doesn’t love a bouquet and a nice brunch? This year, though, try branching out! Mimosas aside, Mother’s Day is about showing your mom that you care and you appreciate her. This year, show her you care by surprising her with an unexpected gift that’s as useful as it is delightful.
Trust us–she wants her coffee to stay hot, her tea to stay cold, and her groceries to stay fresh. You can’t go wrong with a Yeti cup (make it extra special by having it wrapped with a custom design) or a Yeti cooler she can keep in the car–you never know when it’ll come in handy. Right now, our faves are these Yeti cups in gorgeous DuraCoat colors.
2. MRS. MEYER’S CLEAN DAY
Ok, it may seem kind of weird to put cleaning products in a Mother’s Day gift guide, but hear us out: moms love Mrs. Meyer’s products because they smell fantastic, PLUS they are formulated with plant-derived ingredients and essential oils—and they’re still tough on dirt and grime. Indulging oneself in a high-quality cleaning product can be a luxury!
3. FLOWERS & SUCCULENTS
Some moms have a green thumb—encourage them to embrace it with a gift of beautiful flowers, stunning succulents, or one of our many unique garden accessories.
4. J. R. WATKINS BATH SOAK & BALMS
Starting with their trademark liniment in 1868, J.R. Watkins has been selling natural U.S.-made bath and body products ever since.

Watkins spices and extracts, located in the grilling section!
