Mother’s Day Gift Ideas from Laura U
Last Mother’s Day, most of us were not able to be with our moms in-person. As we start to re-enter the world in 2021, what better way then to celebrate the Moms who keep the world running and supported us through the madness of 2020. Our team put together a list of Mother’s Day gift ideas that the Moms on the LUDC team love.
FOR STARTING THE MORNING OFF BRIGHT
The Moms at LUDC take their coffee very seriously. This elegant marble French Press from Le Creuset is a great way to start off your day. “Crafted from premium stoneware for excellent heat retention, the Le Creuset French Press is finished with a vibrant glaze which is easy to clean, dishwasher-safe, and resistant to chips, scratches and stains.” Boasting a marble finish, it doubles as an eye-pleasing kitchen accessory. Being able to throw something in the dishwasher is always a plus!
FOR THE MOM THAT LOVES SPARKLE
Gifting the gift of jewelry goes back over 25,000 years. In ancient and prehistoric cultures, rough stones, feathers, bones, and shells were worn to represent identity, courage, and to ward off bad luck. Today, jewelry is still worn to express oneself and is given as a gift to show love. This Evil Eye Diamond Sapphire Ring from ZaDok Jewelers is Laura’s pick this Mother’s Day:”I love the color and sparkle. And good luck can never hurt – this is such a fun piece!” This refined ring is the perfect gift for any Mom.
FOR LOUNGING IN STYLE
Over the past year, most of us have invested in comfortable lounge wear. From working from home to doing puzzles with the kiddos to movie night – lounge wear and athleisure became the uniform of 2020 – and we are not mad about it! As we start to go back into the world, having a soft knit set to throw on after a long day is the perfect thing to look forward to. LUDC’s COO and Mom, Melissa, picked the dreamiest gift from Skin, the Marissa Cardigan and the Maddie Pant: “The responsibility of being the go-to person for everyone’s questions is the toughest thing about being a working mom, so I’m a big fan of not making any decisions on Mother’s Day. These comfy and stylish sets from Skin are on my wish list. High quality cotton and cashmere that looks good whether home or out and about. One less thing for me worry to about!” This is a gift that will definitely make you the favorite.
FOR RELAXING AND SELF-CARE
Moms do it all, so what is a gift this Mother’s Day that will help them decompress and feel appreciated? Lab to Beauty is the perfect place to start. According to their website, “Lab to Beauty is a clean beauty movement inspired by the farm-to-table movement, which puts plants first and makes clean eating a priority. Similarly, Lab to Beauty makes clean beauty the priority, putting plants first and fully in all formulas.” The LUDC team is always looking for clean beauty products that are effortless. Lab to Beauty fits the bill – it is vegan + cruelty-free – and is infused with soothing CBD and beautifying plant actives formulated for all skin and hair types. You can’t go wrong with any of their products, but we love the Quick Fix Serum, the Green Cure Mask, and the Soothing Bath Soak.
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES UNIQUE GIFTS
In the 14th century, France became the European center of perfume. During the Renaissance period, perfumes were used mostly by royalty and the wealthy. Slowly, perfume spread throughout the globe and started to be produced commercially in Paris, and from there, it blossomed into the industry we know today. Similar to the perfumed glove, made popular in the court of Louis XIV, the Diptquye Do Son Perfumed Bracelet allows the scent of perfume to last. This perfume-infused bracelet diffuses the fresh notes of Do Son. Creative Director and Mom, Gina, picked this aromatic bracelet for our Mother’s Day Gift Guide. “I’m energized by having fragrant things in my space and on my person. I love this Diptquye scented bracelet – plus the packaging is so creative! It dresses up any outfit and makes me feel so fresh.”
FOR THE MOM THAT LOVES PICTURES
Over the past year, families have kept in touch with video-conferencing, sharing pictures, and sending notes. Moms may have missed out on special moments in-person due to the lockdown like weddings, new babies, and family vacations. These Signature Layflat Photo Albums are a great way to share meaningful occasions. Mom and LUDC Project Manager, Megan thinks this is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. “I love these photo books from Artifact Uprising. It takes time to put them together, something I am limited on as a working mom, so it would be nice to receive as a gift! “
FOR THE MOM WHO NEEDS A LAUGH
Actor Leslie Jordan was the inspiration we didn’t know we needed during 2020. The Emmy Award-winner went viral on Instagram with his hilarious monologues about his life experiences and related to millions of followers all over the globe. His new book How Ya’ll Doing?” Misadventures and Mischief from a Life Well Lived, is the perfect gift to make your mom smile and laugh out loud.
