Millennials moms aren't regular moms, they're cool moms — and that means they need correspondingly cool gifts for Mother's Day. Flowers and candy aren't gonna cut it when it comes to mothers in their 20's and 30's: They need thoughtful (but still hip) presents that reflect the trends and causes that actually mean something to them. So what are some perfect Mother's Day gifts for millennial moms this year?
Whether you're a millennial yourself who's daydreaming about what your significant other or kids might surprise you with on Mother's Day morning, or a non-millennial desperately trying to think of a gift for a mom who's up on all the latest fads and fashions, the options on this list definitely fit the bill. Plus, there's something for just about every mom, no matter what her particular interests or hobbies.
Even better? Most of these gifts are surprisingly affordable (though there are a few small splurges if you've got some money to burn). Some are super useful, some are just plain fun — and as every mom knows (millennial or not), staying sane as a mom is all about striking the right balance between practical and playful.
Here are some millennial-approved ideas to get you started!
1. Millennial Pink French Press
2. Avocado Tote Bag
3. FitBit Charge 2
4. 'Slay Then Rosé' Tank
5. Plum Beauty Oil
Beauty oils are definitely a millennial trend, and this new offering from Le Prunier (made from plums!) is apparently eight times more powerful than argan oil when it comes to protecting skin from free radicals. Use on face, hair, nails... anywhere, really.
6. TOMS Popsicle Slip-Ons
7. Vegan Subscription Box
8. Australian Red Clay Mask
9. Zodiac Trinket Dish
10. Coordinates Cuff
When shopping for millennial jewelry, unique is the name of the game. That's why these cuffs from Lat & Lo are ideal: They can be customized with the latitude & longitude coordinates of any "special place" (where you met your partner, where your baby was born, etc.).
