You simply can’t have too many Tervis Tumblers. It’s the only cup a mom needs for sipping just another anything that needs sipping. And there are thousands of designs out there, in all shapes and sizes.

Comfort is everything. Lululemon offers some of the most versatile and cozy products for every kind of mother out there. A few selections we love:

  • Align Pants – Pants designed to maximize her comfort that are super soft and will move with her as she goes through her normal routine. They feel like butter and part of you.
  • On the Fly Pants – easy-care and versatile pieces that she will love to wear in any situation. From a quick trip out and about to a more formal situation.
  • Scuba Hoodie – deep dive into a warm snug hoodie. What’s better than a soft, stretchy, pullover.



Yes, it looks and sounds silly. But trust us here – Slipping into a pair of Floafers changes the footwear game.

Floafers are the ultimate preppy gardening shoe / pool shoe / hanging around outside shoe. They’re also the ultimate conversation starter – they look like a driving shoe but have the everyday comfort of those other rubber foam shoe brands.

Unique Mother’s Day gifts should be fun, after all. Mom will love them, even if she’s weird about wearing them in public.
