Mother’s day is on the horizon, and if you’re like most people – you’ve forgotten to pick something up. Thankfully there is still some time and you don’t have to just settle for flowers from the grocery store florist. Every year we struggle to find something that Mom would like, but this year, we’re looking outside of the box and we’re finding some non-traditional gifts that you can get. Now, not every mom is the same or will want the same type of items, but we’re confident that the Moms in our lives will love the items we picked out for them this year!
Malicious Women Offer Items to Pamper The Sassiest of Mothers
We found Malicious Women candles online a while back and instantly fell in love. Not only do they offer funny names, but unique scents and items that you wont find elsewhere. Like the Colorful Hair, Don’t Care! Candle? Yes, it actually smells like Frooty Pebbles. Their products not only make us laugh, but are just the medicine that Mom may need after a long year of distance learning and working at home. Gift sets can include bottles of stick matches, bath bombs and even diffused oils to help make their space smell fantastic while helping them relax.
Every package from Malicious Women comes with pure maliciousness enclosed, but all in good fun of course. They’re the perfect present for snarky, sassy and even goofy mother in your life. You can find a variety of candles, body products, clothing, masks and even a subscription service on their website – so finding the right item is only a few clicks away!
Baby Fire Pits Bring Warmth and Beauty No Matter Where She lives
If your Mom lives in a condo, an apartment or in an HOA that doesn’t allow fire pits – have we got a beautiful solution for you! Meet the Baby Fire Pit – a hand crafted piece of art that not only can be used inside but outside to add warmth and ambiance to any space. Made by hand by H&K Studios in Colorado Springs, each Baby Fire Pit is crafted into a thing of beauty and brings their craftsmanship to your home.
Created after a shut down from the pandemic, Baby Fire Pits not only became the solution to keep a small business afloat but bring a fun way to have fires to millions of people. They are odorless, smokeless and non-toxic. They are perfect for using indoors and outdoors, taking camping or evening having a movie night with smores in the living room.
We absolutely fell in love with ours the moment we took it out of the box and it will be packed with us for a quick fire option on the patio or when we hit the road again. Right now H&K Studios has a great deal on the Baby Fire Pits for Mother’s Day but they also have other beautiful gift options like ornaments, bottle openers and art for the home as well.
Loot Crate Brings out the Geek in Every Mom
Long ago, it would have been considered a bad thing to call your mom a geek or a nerd. But more and more people are embracing these terms. And Loot Crate has great options for the geeky Mom in your life. From subscription boxes, apparel and one-off gift ideas for the Nerdy Mom in your life.
We were sent one of their Lovesick themed boxes and it was everything a nerd could want and dream of. It included h a Harley Quinn Hat, Sixteen Candles Shot Glass, Snow White Villains T-shirt, a pin and even a Shaun of the Dead Cricket Bat! The only thing that would make that better if it had the Bloody Mary, Kings Head and Little Princess Shot glasses in the wells – but we’re going to add those later!
Starting at $24.99 + Shipping Lootcrate has themed boxes that the Mom in your life will love.
Salonpas Helps Her Relax After a Long Day
Mom’s work hard, both inside and out of the home. And after a long day, she just wants to rest and relax – but we all know that that hard work can take a toll on their bodies. While not a flashy gift, giving Mom a gift of something she can use and help her feel better is always appreciated. That’s why this year we added some Salonpas to our gift ideas just for this reason. Let Mom kick her feet up and get a little pain relief after a long day, put on her favorite movie and hand her, her favorite drink and snack. It’s a small gesture but one that will definitely make her feel great on Mother’s Day and every other day of the year.
Tiki Tunes Bring a Tropical Vacation to Her Music
If Mom is the type that takes her tunes or podcasts wherever she goes – why not bring a little fun and light with her as well? We absolutely love the Tiki Tunes Bluetooth Speaker just for that. Not only will it crank out her tunes and can pair easily with any Android or iDevice but you can click on the base to get a light flickering effect of having her own Tiki lamp or fire going. Perfect for having on the patio or just adding a little bit of fun to her office or kitchen, the Tiki Tunes speaker is one that she can take wherever she goes and give her great tunes as she does!
Add a Beautiful Garden to Her Office or Any Space with Lula’s Garden
Instead of sending cut flowers, or something that will wilt and die in a few weeks, Lula’s Gardens give a pop of fun and color to any space that will last for months if not longer. Provided in each garden is a small water dropper so you can properly take care of your garden as well.
Lula’s Garden curates small succulent gardens starting at just $27 and going up to $96. Each package comes fully assembled and ready to gift, or open when it arrives. Lula’s Garden was born out of love for succulents and a desire to bring the outdoors in. After noticing the popularity of succulents, founder Liraz Birnbaum, inspired by modern culture, spent over a year developing a gift box that doubles as a planter. A concept that reinvents the art of gifting. Each garden is hand made in Los Angeles with locally grown succulents.
To order your own Lula’s Garden or to send one as a gift check out their website. They offer a wide variety of gardens and plant options that can add to any space and require little attention and care. For every garden purchased Lula’s Garden donates to water.org. Each garden sold provides six months of safe water for one person in the developing world.
Game on Mom!
Don’t think we forgot the gaming Mom! There’s always a fun gift idea for her with Loot Gaming as well! We know and love our gaming friends and Moms and know that they are a special type of mom who can go from making dinner to kicking your butt in your favorite game. Don’t think just because she answers to Mom she doesn’t know how to take down that bad guy or survive in the Wasteland.
For the mom gamer in the family, this New Game+ themed crate has a Castlevania Scarf and Beanie, Dark Souls mug, Fallout Tea Infuser and more.
Loot Gaming is $28.95 plus shipping and handling
