This year our Mother’s Day gift guide is all about relaxing and giving the gift of quality time. Mother’s Day is about celebrating moms of all kinds. So, keep in mind that many of these gifts also apply to grandmas, mother-in-laws, stepmoms, and godmothers. Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas from the Laura U Design Collective team.

Here are our top Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

For the Mom that Needs to be Pampered

What could be a better Mother’s Day gift idea then a day at the spa? Book your mom a day at the spa or give her a gift card to her favorite retreat. If you are in Houston, Laura’s favorite is Trellis Spa at the Houstonian. Known for their excellent service, soaking pools, and gardens – it truly is what dreams are made of. Their new sister spa located in Highland Village, Solaya Spa & Salon offers beautiful, light-filled spaces, and the friendly and experienced service of The Houstonian.

For Sleeping in Style

If your Mom is anything like us, comfort is everything, especially while you are relaxing at home. Our creative director, Gina has her eye on the beautiful Lunya silk loungewear. These pieces are extremely soft, comfy, and beautiful. Added bonus they are washable at home – perfect for warm Texas nights.

For the Mom Who Loves to Cook

If your Mom loves to cook, a great Mother’s Day gift idea is a new cookbook. We have some team members with the newest Half Baked Harvest Cookbook on their Mother’s Day list. Tieghan Gerard’s cookbook is a reflection of the best of the best recipes she shares on her blog. Her recipes are delicious and the photography for the dishes are stunning.

For the Mom Who Needs a Getaway

A getaway surprise is always a great Mother’s Day gift idea! For new mom and COO Melissa, her little one is almost six months old, and she is ready for a weekend trip. Two nights in Vegas with her husband at the Cosmopolitan is the perfect quick trip. Paired with dinner and cocktails at Jalepo and a spa service at the Sahra – what more could you want. Then head right back home for snuggles with her kiddos.

For the Mom Who Loves Jewels

Jewelry is always a safe bet. In our 2021 Mother’s Day Gift guide we talked about the history of the gifting of jewelry. Today, it is worn to express oneself and is given as a gift to show love. Pick up something from a local artisan to make it even more special. In Houston, we love De Petra’s bold pieces. From colorful bracelets and cuffs to unique, one-of-a-kind rings, you are sure to find the perfect piece of jewelry.

For the Mom with a Sweet Tooth

Who doesn’t love a delicious treat? Sweets are a great Mother’s Day gift idea since it’s something Mom can share with the kiddos. Marie, our senior technical designer, loves the Catalonian truffles and ices creams from Rocambolesc. The Roca brothers are experts at injecting fun and design back into ice cream parlors. With five locations in Spain, they are just about to open a Houston storefront in Uptown Village, perfect for a Mother’s Day outing.

For the Mom Who Loves Scents

It wouldn’t be a Laura U Design Collective gift guide without a beautiful candle or fresh scent. The roll on fragrance oils from San Saba Soap Co. are so delicious! We are loving the White Tea Peonies for spring and summer. The travel size is perfect for sticking in your purse to refresh mid-day. For a classic Mother’s Day gift idea, go with a Diptyque Baies candle. This is one of our favorite scents and the vessels are beautiful and double as a decor piece.
