2021 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: 5 Little Luxuries She’ll Love

With Mother’s Day around the corner, we asked our design team to weigh in on the items they would most like to give (or, ahem — to receive). From luxurious loungewear to mood-lifting scents, see what made our list of favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas in 2021. 

1. LAKE Pajamas

We at Acampora Interiors are not-so-secret fans of all things LAKE pajamas. Why? Their signature Pima cotton styles are both comfortable and cute, and the cut of their silhouettes doesn’t compromise on style. They’re the super-soft kind that make you want to stay in pajamas all day — which is just so 2021. (Bonus: they’ve conveniently compiled this lovely Mother’s Day gift shop, in case you need help narrowing down your options).

2. AERIN Fragrances

Next on our list of go-to Mother’s Day gift ideas? For Senior Interior Designer Tricia Fortin, it’s Aerin Lauder’s collection of subtle scents. “Her fragrances always transport me to somewhere fabulous, and can change your mood in one spritz,” she says. In a year where travel is limited and gathering is scarce, we think anything described as mood-lifting and transformative is a perfect fit for moms. AERIN offers a selection of travel bottles, as well, which make excellent gift ideas for moms who prefer to give a fragrance a test-drive first.

3. Monica Vinader Engravable Bracelet

A stylish alternative to wearing your heart on your sleeve: the engravable Monica Vinader Linear Chain Bracelet. This mom-approved Mother’s Day gift idea is a delicate gold chain lovely enough to stand on its own, yet stylish enough to stack beautifully or pair with a signature piece that she may already wear daily. It comes in sterling silver, 18ct gold plated vermeil or 18ct gold plated vermeil to complement the metal of her choice. 

Engraving is complimentary with a selection of several timeless font styles. Add a child’s name or a birth date for a gift that’s both stylish and sentimental.

4. Day Spa

Let’s face it, sometimes what mom wants most on Mother’s Day is a day to herself. For those who prefer gifting experiences, our go-to Mother’s Day gift idea is a day spa gift certificate. No matter what menu item you select — whether a classic mani-pedi, a luxurious facial, or a full 60-minute massage — we have a hunch that she’ll love it.

There are countless day spas that offer a truly blissful respite, but for the ultimate, splurge-worthy experience, treat her to a day at Boston’s Mandarin Oriental, a dream spa destination for moms to recharge. We promise she won’t mind a bit. 

5. Breakfast in Bed, Delivered

While the traditional Mother’s Day brunch buffet may be on hold this year, you can still gift mom a classic breakfast-in-bed experience — even if you’re all grown up with little ones of your own. We love this darling kit by Harry & David that serves up all the fixings — delivered right to her door.
