10 Gifts Ideas You Can’t Go Wrong with This Mother’s Day

CODA Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mothers are some of our favorite people.

And as we get older, more and more mothers are added to our circles. This is our first Mother’s Day on the blog, and we want to show love to these phenomenon women in our lives.

If you’re still shopping for a Mother’s Day gift, and have run out of ideas, here are some last-minute gift ideas for the mom in your life – at any age and for any budget.

We’ve put together a list of 10 items that we know the special woman (or women) in your life will love. Feel free to steal an idea or two!

1.      Mules

You probably weren’t expecting this, but mules were a big trend in 2016 and are even a bigger trend this year. Flat mules, low block-heel mules, heeled mules, sneaker mules, espadrille mules— mules come in all kinds of fabrications and colors and are as gorgeous as ever. The best part is, women of all ages can easily rock these shoes. So if you have a shoe lover in your life, regardless of her age, gift a pair this Mother’s Day.


2.      Engraved jewelry

You can’t go wrong with a gold link chain or bracelet. Just make sure that whatever you do, you pick a piece of jewelry that matches her style. If you’re in doubt, you can take a mental note of the type of pieces she wears often or you can steal a glance at her jewelry collection. To make the gift extra special, get it engraved and leave a beautiful message for her to always look at and smile.


3.      Hair care products

Protective styles of any kind are a lifesaver for the moms we know! If the mom in your life wears them, she’s going to absolutely love receiving a Girl+Hair Under Hair Care set. Created for women who wear protective hairstyles, Girl+Hair Under Hair Care is the first natural hair care line formulated to promote healthy natural or relaxed hair underneath hair extensions, braids, wigs, etc. The best thing about this set it not only the amazing smell of the products, but that it takes the labor out of caring for your hair underneath your hair extensions. The special mom receiving this set will get something even more precious than healthy and clean hair...she’ll get to spend less time on her hair and more time on other important things.


4.      Chocolate gift bag

It’s a simple gift that it is easy to do last minute and on a tight budget. Fill any bag of your choice with the chocolate brands you know the mom in your life would enjoy. Apart from adding to her stash and satisfying her sweet tooth, she’s going to love that you remember the treats she enjoys most. Some brands - like Seattle Chocolates and Ghirardelli - make signature chocolate bags, but we also recommend you making one yourself to add a personal touch.


5.      Luxury bath set

Bath time is probably the only time the mom in your life has a moment or two to herself...so why not make sure she enjoys those peaceful moments even more? Shop for a luxury bath sets with beautiful scent notes, like rose, lavender and bergamot. We love “Made in Nigeria” brands like Arami Essentials, R&R Luxury (available also in the US and UK) and Narganics.  


6.      New makeup releases

If the mom in your life loves to wear makeup, she’s going to be excited with a shopping bag full popular and newly released beauty products. You can browse Instagram for some popular or up and coming brands like Koyvoca Cosmetics , or visit your nearest Sephora, Ulta or department store beauty counter for the latest, trendiest releases from more established brands. We love the products near the Ulta and Sephora checkout...and we think she will too!


7.      Art piece

If she’s an art lover, pick up an art piece you know she would love. Art speaks to the soul and if you get her something she loves, it could further deepen your connection over your shared appreciation of art.

8.      Beautiful timepiece

If you have a big budget, you can get her a beautiful wrist watch that will fit right in with her style. Or be extra unique and get her a wooden watch. You don’t have to go with the biggest brand names, just pick something classy that won’t fade with time.

Kill two birds with one stone with Wood Watched by Jord. They are offering free engraving on all women’s watches from now until May 14th.


9.      Gorgeous lashes

If she’s a lash lover, add to her collection of lashes by getting her a few new pairs. Depending on what she likes to wear, you can go with natural looking lashes or dramatic ones to suit her style. Check out our CODA Lashes to find some gorgeous, but affordable, pairs of mink and silk lashes.


10.   Fragrance

Most women shy away from picking up new scents once they get comfortable with one. Be different and shop a new scent for her. Make sure you actually shop for the scent in-person and smell each fragrance to find one that would suit her best. If you know any of the scents she usually wears or is dying to try, consult with a knowledgeable salesperson that can give you suggestions. She will definitely appreciate the effort you took to find her a new scent.
