Treat Her to One Of These Thoughtful, Fail-Proof Gifts This Mother’s Day
From designer sunglasses to an unforgettable Caribbean cruise.
By all means, go the flower bouquet route again this year, but please don’t stop there! Every mom deserves far more than just fragrant color in a vase. This Mother’s Day, wow the mom in your life with something thoughtful she’ll cherish forever — the kind of jaw-dropping gift she’ll still be using (and telling her friends about) years down the line.
Sunglass Hut is your ultimate destination for exactly this, with memorable gifts that literally shimmer and sparkle, yet still feel super practical. Whether you’re shopping for your own amazing mom or the remarkable mother of your children, these Mother’s Day gifts will cement your place as the best gift-giver in her life. The smile that will grow across mom’s face will be so radiant that you might just need your own pair of shades, too.
Your mom likely knows what it’s like to juggle child care, a career, her passions, and putting something resembling dinner on the table each night. Like her, these high-tech Ray-Ban Stories sunglasses do it all, giving mom the ability to take photos and shoot videos without ever losing focus on the magical moments at hand.
Fortnum & Mason’s handwoven wicker baskets are showstoppers themselves, but wait until she opens it up! This basket is overflowing with high-class British goodies, like traditional shortbread cookies, raspberry preserves, cocoa-dusted chocolate truffles, and a selection of elegant loose teas, with all the dainty accoutrements she’ll use to prepare herself a cuppa straight from jolly old England.
Timeless Dolce&Gabbana cat-eye shades will set the perfect tone for summertime fun in the sun. Complete with glamorous gold D&G logos on the temples, these sunglasses will match mom’s icon status as she enjoys anything from a casual beach day to an upscale brunch on a yacht.
Your mom is resilient, but with a delicate flair that sets her apart. The same is true of this stunning crossbody bag from Dooney & Bourke. Made with a long-lasting coated cotton, it’ll stand up to being tossed into the back of the minivan during weekly errands, while its satin feel will remind mom that she’s an elegant, gorgeous human being with a softness that deserves to be seen and appreciated. Trimmed with leather and finished with a glittering pendant, this bag will make her feel like a million dollars on Mother’s Day…and every day that follows.
These oversized Burberry sunglasses are here to make a statement. With subdued pointed edges and a bold, metallic Burberry ‘B’ monogram on each temple, she’ll be exuding total movie star vibes no matter her look — whether it's paired with well-worn mom jeans and a chunky sweater to that slinky Friday night dress she’s been eager to slip back into.
This set of self-care essentials will help the mom in your life relax and unwind, but your purchase goes farther than that. A portion of all proceeds will help keep local women survivors safe by providing them work, housing, and financial independence. That’s a Mother’s Day win-win!
Originally designed way, way back in 1937, the classic Ray-Ban aviator remains every bit as classic and cool today. Whether your wife, mom, or the most important motherly figure in your life is putting sunscreen on the kids or attempting to unfurl a blanket on the beach this summer, outfit her in these timeless sunglasses which can be made into prescription shades and customized.
I won’t make the ‘wine o’clock’ joke here, but let’s be honest, sometimes mom could use an adult beverage at the end of a long day. With this monthly vino subscription, she’ll be able to stand at her kitchen island or sink into the sofa while being transported to an exciting wine-making region each and every month. Her world tour of wine consists of four bottles (reds, whites, the sporadic rosé, and the occasional sparkling) that have been hand-picked to take mom far away from the hustle of her everyday life. Maybe you can’t travel to Chilé right now, but you can prepare a sea bass dinner and uncork a Chilean cabernet sauvignon from her Grand Tour (available in subscriptions of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months).
The fine metal garnish and intricate geometric design of these stunning Versace sunglasses evoke a thrilling art deco aesthetic. If mom digs the roaring ‘20s (and having a cosmopolitan in one hand) make this Mother’s Day iconic by giving her an exquisite accessory that will be a glamorous point of conversation wherever she goes this summer.
Finally, here’s your chance to achieve legendary status as a partner! The most stylish way to put mom’s new Sunglass Hut shades to use, sans children (hers, yours, and everyone else’s), is to book a Sea Terrace cabin on the Virgin Voyage Scarlet Lady. We’re talking a 4 or 5 day, adults-only jaunt out into the Caribbean for you and the mother of your kiddos, with a day and evening on a private Bahamian island and a hammock on your balcony. Plus, she’ll need those gorgeous Sunglass Hut shades on this remarkable vacation.
