Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide
Patricia Yao

Shopping for Mother’s Day can feel a little stressful – after all, how do you express your appreciation for the person who does it all with just one gift? Getting a thoughtful and useful gift (that’s right, no more robes!) is critical, so we’ve created a gift guide for you to use. Whether you’re shopping for your mom, a mother figure, a friend who just gave birth, or maybe even yourself, we’ve got options. 

For the Quiet Luxury Moms:

The quiet luxury mom has a taste for the finer things without being too flashy. The Aguadulce W3Z-1775C1 is perfect for lunch with friends, a winery tour, or even a garden wedding. These wedges have a lightweight EVA wedge that provides a springy base for all-day comfort. Dressing up? Try the 1-800 by Intentionally Blank, with its sculptural, flared heel and memory foam insole. 

For the Fitness Moms:

We don’t need to tell you about the fitness moms – you know, the ones who would rather just not leave the house if the dress code requires something more than athleisure. Well, we have the perfect comfortable sneakers to fit with their vibe. The Hoka Clifton 9 is an ideal spring and summer sneaker because it’s lighter and more cushioned than any of the previous models. There’s also the Mach 6, a lightweight and durable running shoe for setting fitness goals or chasing after little ones. 

For the On-The-Go Moms:

On-the-go moms are the masters of juggling schedules and strapping kids into car seats. If you’ve got an on-the-go mom in your life, she’d love the On Cloud 5. Runner-tech performance meets all-day comfort with these shoes that are also made from recycled materials, so you can look good and feel good. The Hoka Transport is another great option – combining lifestyle fashion with performance comfort, they can be worn pretty much anywhere. 

For the Fun Moms:

The fun mom is always busy, whether she’s heading off to an event or thinking up some great activity for everyone. If you’ve got a fun mom you’re shopping for, try the Ileana Wrap from UGG (P.S. These are also a great way to jump on the bow trend in a subtle way!). The Kang from Intentionally Blank is also perfect for the mom who’s always out and about. 

For the Cool Moms:

We all have fond memories of a cool mom from our childhood – she let you make a mess in the house, and play in the mud, and she probably didn’t mind if you had a little dessert before dinner. The Disquette from UGG is the perfect, cozy option for the cool mom in your life. If she’s a little more adventurous, try the Tasman – it’s just as cozy, but with more flair on the exterior. 

For the Green Thumb Moms: 

If you know a mom who’s constantly got dirt under her nails and loves to be out in the garden, we have some options for you. The Kane from Dansko is a fan-favorite, with its easy-to-clean uppers, Natural Arch technology, and ultra-durable outsole to make it last. From gardening and the farmers market to weekend strolls, they’ll reach for these again and again. Of course, we can’t overlook a classic either – the Birkenstock Arizona EVA has the look of our favorite Birkenstocks with the colors of tomorrow. Plus, the ultra-lightweight and highly flexible EVA make it great for the summertime. 

For The Crunchy Moms:

She’s healthy, she’s shopping local and organic, and she needs shoes that fit her aesthetic. The Birkenstock Kyoto has all your favorite Birkenstock features like the cork footbed and the suede upper with a new athletic design for a silhouette that elevates everyday wear. The Mayari Oiled Leather, also from Birkenstock, is another great option. This model is fun and a bit more elegant, with a toe loop that takes it to the next level.

For The Stressed Out Moms:

Let’s face it, all moms really want is a little bit of time to relax. The Ooahh Slide and Oomega Ooahh, both from OOFOS, are ideal for a bit of self-care. Their patented footbed design reduces stress on knees, ankles, and other joints, and their OOfoam™ technology absorbs 37% more impact than traditional footwear. Whether you’re off to get a pedicure, a spa day, or just want to curl up with a good book at home, these slides are the best way to relax.
