20 Mother's Day 2021 Gifts For Your Sister, Because She Deserves It

Because she’s a great sister and mom.

Originally Published: 

If your sister is a parent, you’ve gotten some pretty amazing nieces and nephews out of the deal, and being an aunt or uncle is pretty much the best. Whether you and your sis are lucky enough to raise kids near each other or you rely on FaceTime for check-ins, let her know that you’re thinking of her with one of these Mother’s Day gifts for your sister (or sister-in-law). Maybe she’s a new mom, still trying to get her sea legs in the overwhelming months after giving birth. In that case your sister may appreciate a CBD tincture, a luxe body oil, or even a smart water bottle to help her remember to get those eight 8-ounce glasses in a day (and even more if she’s breastfeeding).

Maybe she’s an old pro at the motherhood game and what she’ll really love is a sentimental piece of art commemorating her kids’ birthdays, or on the other hand, a trio of clean wines. Whether she’s your sister in the sense that you share parents, or she’s a friend who feels like family, these Mother’s Day gifts for sisters are thoughtful, functional, and a little decadent, because she may not treat herself, but you can.

An Exfoliating Mask

If she doesn’t have time to get to the spa, she’ll appreciate this exfoliating mask as a next-best option. From beloved natural skincare brand, Herbivore, this jelly mask combines AHA and BHA to help revive skin. Best of all, it only needs to be left on for ten minutes.


A Spa Experience At Home

Just because she can’t make it to the spa doesn’t mean she can’t have a relaxing spa experience at home with this divinely scented Lavender Bath Essences from Dr. Hauschka. Add a few capfuls to warm running water and prepare to be transported.


A Powerful CBD Tincture

Every mom can use a little dose of chill every now and then, and this cinnamon-flavored CBD tincture does the trick. It’s made with a potent 600 milligrams of CBD, plus it’s lab-tested and from a certified-organic hemp farm.


A Personalized Necklace

She can keep her kids close to her heart with this minimalist initial necklace that’s finished with a subtle gemstone on the clasp, each thought to bring specific qualities like balance, calm, hope, or intuition.


A Super Mom Mug

A Beautiful Diffuser

Whether she already collects essential oils or just wants to add a dose of chicness (and moisture) into her at-home office, you can’t go wrong with a diffuser, especially one that’s this beautiful. It’s made of a matte ceramic and comes in several cool colors like blush pink or classic black, this functional decor will be a hit (and bonus points if you throw in some essential oils from Vitruvi, too).


A Rich Moisturizer

Dry winter skin needs a buttery moisturizer, and moms need a lotion that dries quickly because they don’t have a lot of time to lounge around in a towel. This body soufflé uses whipped shea and cocoa butters plus plant extracts for an airy moisturizer that feels and smells amazing.


An Eco-Friendly Bag For Potlucks

It’s fair to assume that once it’s safe to do so, people are going to be gathering as much as possible. This clever dish tote is perfect for bringing a dish to share without worrying that it’s going to tip over or spill in the bag. It’s made with 100% organic and food-safe cotton.

A Patent Leather Card Holder

A Statement Earring

Giving someone you don’t know well a set of snail products may not be the right move, but your sister will be nothing but appreciative for this kit that use snail mucin to help skin glow and look its healthiest.
