Mother’s Day Gifts
Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away… do you know what you’re getting the Moms in your life?! Whether you’re shopping for your Mom, a new Mom, or even yourself – I’ve got ideas for you!
Before I started updating this post, I asked the Moms that follow me on Instagram what their favorite gifts have been, and while I got some great gift ideas, the majority of them just want a break 😂 A night at a hotel alone, a babysitting for date night out, a relaxing day at the spa, a pricey aesthetic treatment, a gift card for a massage or mani/pedi… things like that. A few people also suggested things like a cleaning service/deep clean of the house and a family photo session with a professional photographer. Think about those little things that they would really enjoy but might not ever treat themselves to.
Of course if you feel the need to get them a physical gift, I still got you! Here are some fun ideas that I love to gift, along with more suggestions from the Mamas out there!
Lake Shore Merch
As you may have seen, I finally launched my own online shop! To be honest, I wasn’t planning on creating any Mother’s Day designs since I, myself, am not a Mom – but so many of you in that phase of life right now that I realized I wanted to create some cute merch for you!
The bestseller so far has been the In My Mom Era sweatshirt, which also comes in a t-shirt! It’s perfect for any new mom, or any Swiftie mom – especially if she wants to be SUPER comfy at the Eras Tour 😉
I also love the Mama Bear sweatshirt (which also comes in a t-shirt), the No Sleep New Moms Club sweatshirt, Cool Mom crewneck and Not A Regular Mom hoodie. If you prefer simpler designs, there is also a subtle Mama sweatshirt – and I use the same font for a Grandma crewneck and Nana hoodie. So many options!

If you want to treat her to nice jewelry, Dana Rebecca Designs is both popular and stunning. She’s also based right here in Chicago, which is pretty cool! If you want something nice but a little less expensive, Maya Brenner necklaces are also a very popular gift. As for more affordable options, this Fitbit Luxe with the prettiest Gorjana band is on sale for just $89! It’s such a good deal, I’m tempted to get it for myself!! Also, Gorjana is a great place to look for affordable jewelry in general, too.
Speaking of activity trackers, the Oura ring is a bit of splurge but I am obsessed with mine. If the Mom you’re shopping for is really into health and wellness, this is a really awesome gift idea. You can read my full review with pros and cons here, but TLDR: it’s pretty, comfortable, and you get both activity and sleep stats!
Nonstick Oven Pan
I’ve had this oven pan for a while but for some reason, I’ve been using it more frequently recently. First of all, it’s beautiful in person – but beyond that, it’s the smoothest nonstick and it’s SO easy to clean. It also comes with an oven mat that works like a reusable parchment alternative. I don’t use it all the time (I think you’re supposed to?) because the nonstick on the actual pan is so good – but it’s nice that they include it as an option. It also has a one-inch checked pattern on it that can help with dough measurements, too!
Merit is a really cool female-founded beauty brand that I’ve become a fan of this year, and I feel like their sets would make a great Mother’s Day gift! I chose the Skin & Lips Set for the collage because I think it would be pretty easy to pick out lip, cheek, and highlighter shades. That being said, if you know/can guess their foundation shade, the Five Minute Morning Set would make an AMAZING gift for a busy mom!
CBD Bath Soak
Equilibria is an amazing female founded AND Chicago based CBD brand that I’ve been a fan of for years now – and their CBD Relaxation Soak is currently 50% OFF! I’ve gotten their bath salts as a gift for my mom countless times because they’re just so lovely. You can also use code LAKESHORELADY for 15% off the rest of the site too. Adam and I love the sleep gummies the best out of all the ingestible options!
LAKE Pajamas is another brand that’s a no brainer for Mother’s Day. I got a pair for my Mom as a gift a few years ago and she is now a full blown superfan. They’re really high quality and incredibly soft – I don’t know any mom who wouldn’t be delighted to open up one of their boxes. I recommend their Pima Robe or their Pima Bundle which comes with a short sleeve top, shorts and pants. You can read my review + more about their sizing in this post!
If your Mom loves a good latte but doesn’t have this frother yet – what are you waiting for?! Our friends got an older version for us back when we got engaged and it’s such a fun little morning luxury.
Digital Picture Frame
We’ve given this digital picture frame as a gift a few times and it’s so fun to be able to send photos directly to the frame! We just email our pictures to the frame’s address and within minutes they will see them appear in their slideshow. Technology is cool, huh?
This is definitely not a budget friendly suggestion, but if you are in the market for outdoor furniture, you COULD surprise her with an Outer couch! We are obsessed with ours (full review here) and they are currently offering up to 15% off + you can get an extra 5% off with code LAKESHORELADY!
