Five Mother’s Day gifts that you’re going to want to steal

I got my mom something pretty cool this year, but I keep running across items that would be wonderful for moms (or anybody!) who needs a little cheer right now. I know it’s supposed to be a day just for your mom, but I’m a big supporter of the “It Takes a Village” style of parenting, and I feel like there are a lot of people out there who deserve to be celebrated for all the mothering they do.

But also, some of this stuff is awesome. If you need a treat… well, I won’t tell if you don’t.


The Mother's Day Divine Set from Chocomize ($40)

The Mother’s Day Divine Set: For $40 ($38 with coupon code MOM… with free shipping!) you’ll get an 8-piece assortment of truffles, a heart-shaped chocolate bar, a dark chocolate bar (with gold flakes!) and 6 macarons. Separately from Chocomize, the value of this box is around $51, so this coupon makes this a nice little discount. If you’re unfamiliar with Chocomize, you can build a custom chocolate bar with a variety of toppings (including gummy bears, Pop Rocks, pepper, crystallized rose petals, bacon and more!)

Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag
Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag ($50)

Rainbow Honey Mother’s Day Mystery Bag: Rainbow Honey is an adorable indie brand of cosmetics. Their usual surprise bag gets positive reviews all over the internet, so I’m guessing their Mother’s Day bundle will be well-loved. For $50, it includes 3 nail polishes, a perfume rollerball, a nail care set, lip care treatment set, full size body lotion and three cakepops. You can choose one of two all-new scents for the bundle. Both are floral with tea notes. Hurry! The price goes up on 5/2/15!

Morgan Taylor Ruffle Trim Floral Wrap and Chemise $26-$29

Morgan Taylor Ruffle Trim Floral Wrap and Chemise: I’m a big believer in robes as Mother’s Day gifts. It’s practical, but a little luxurious. A lot of satiny robes veer off in the Frederick’s of Hollywood look, but this one manages to be sweet. Morgan Taylor offers a few styles in plus sizes, as well.

Sunfold Printing Kit $34
Lumi Sunfold Printing Kit ($35)

Sunfold Printing Kit: Okay, this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Ever made a sun print? This paint lets you make a sun print on fabric. This kit is intended to produce a tie-dye like effect in minutes, but you can easily use it to do botanical prints or anything you like!

Aquafarm ($60)


Aquafarm: This is one of the coolest things to come out of Kickstarter because it’s so simple! Harness the power of hydroponics and fish turds to grow indoor veggies or herbs.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Dootsie! That sunfold kit looks like something I would like my stepmom would like.
