The 10 Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas Under $200
Mother’s Day is fast approaching -- May 10th for those of you who needed to Google it -- which means you are in dire need to find a gift for mom if you haven’t already. Considering shipping time, and delayed processing due to current delivery conditions, we highly suggest you start filling up your shopping cart now. To be extra nice, we put together the 10 best gift ideas that any woman would love, all $200 or under.
The basic sweatshirt is often overlooked, but Champion’s Reverse Weave line elevates the silhouette with a mock neck, just different enough for a gift and sophisticated enough for mom. In addition to a pretty “chalk white” colorway, this comfortable #homefit item comes in brown and grey, as well as in an uncropped version.
J.W. Anderson’s asymmetrical scarf tee is simple yet unexpected. Its loose silhouette complements any figure and the purely cotton makeup guarantees high-quality comfort. The best part about this shirt is the price, currently down to $196 from $490. A steal.
Marni’s Pearl Pendant necklace features oversized resin and crystals in poppy Piet Mondrian-esque colors, hanging on an adjustable and comfortable grosgrain band. A perfect accent to any outfit.
You may not be able to go on a family trip anytime soon -- let alone to Tokyo -- but you can gift mum the scent of one of its most famous landmark destinations, Yoyogi Park. Comme des Garcons and Monocle’s fourth collaborative perfume, Yoyogi, puts the cypress and grass aromas of the park in a beautiful glass bottle. “Created in Paris and perfected in Switzerland,” as any perfume should be.
Lotuff constructs the brand’s beautiful Lois pouch with natural vegetable-tanned leather, which comes in olive, red and black. The size is just right, large enough to store essentials as a pouch on-the-go, and small enough to carry toiletries while traveling. Premium red lining and gold zippers add the finishing touches of luxury.
Vans’ classic slip-ons come in tonal leather, elevating the casual and sporty model for grown-ups. Mama can wear these anywhere, and dress it up or down, however she pleases.
Surprise mother with this edgy piece of jewelry from Maison Margiela MM6. The Made-in-Italy piece is not without its bling, silver-plated and embellished with a shiny crystal atop its dream catcher loop. Keep in mind this is a single earring, which makes it even more stylishly daring.
The approach of spring and summer means the need to battle fickle weather and harshly air conditioned indoors. Help mom avoid catching a cold with this neckband from J.W. Anderson, a convenient -- and stylish -- way to protect and warm the neck. This pink colorway is exclusive to the Webster SoHo, which makes it all the more special.
It would be close to impossible for anyone to resist the scent of fresh peonies, sweet raspberries and vanilla. Overose’s products are made of natural essential oils, and the brand’s Anamorphine candle is specially colored pink all around, from its cute glass case to its in-house botany-blended wax.
Do you disapprove of mother’s interior decorating decisions? Salvage her with Gestalten’s book, A Poor Collector’s Guide to Buying Great Art. Everyone can learn a thing or two about buying art on a limited budget, and this book might make mom laugh too.
