They say April showers bring May flowers, and they do, but they also bring one of our favorite days of the year – Mother’s Day. If you’re like us you celebrate the life-giving mama in your life all year long, but on Mother’s Day you get to kick the love and appreciation up a notch. Figuring out what to get her can seem like a daunting task. After all, what do you give as a gift to the woman that has given you the greatest gift ever?
Sure, we can go with old faithfuls like flowers or a fancy brunch, but after the rollercoaster that was the last year, we figure it’s time to give mom gifts that will encourage her to have fun and relax. Every time is a good time for wine, and this year we want mama to toast to the good life. From wine scented candles and personal wine cellars to subscription boxes and more, we’ve rounded up a few thoughtful gifts that will make her smile and have her saying ‘Cheers!’ all day long.
Essentials Wine Clutch
Having our priorities in order as a mom doesn’t always mean worrying about your partner and minis. Sometimes it means making sure you’ve always got a bottle of your favorite wine in your bag – literally. This chic gold clutch from The Wino Shop gives a new meaning to the term BYOB and will surely make any mom in your life the talk of the party. The clutch holds a full-sized bottle of wine (or champagne!) and is still functional enough to hold your essentials like ID and credit cards.
90 Point Pinot Noir & Rewined Candle Gift Set
After a long day of work and holding down the home, a chill glass of wine and a good smelling candle are a tired mama’s best friend. This 90 Point Pinot Noir & Rewind Candle set combines two of mom’s favorite things into one dope gift that she can’t help but love. The delicious bottle of pinot is paired with a hand-poured pinot scented candle inside a cute recycled wine bottle. It’s everything she needs to relax and unwind.
Stuff Every Wine Snob Should Know
Indulging in wine love goes deeper than simply enjoying a glass from time to time. The world of wine is exciting, complex and full of variety. If your mom considers herself a bit of a wine snob, you’ll definitely want to get her Melissa Monosoff’s book Stuff Every Wine Snob Should Know to make it official. Whether she prefers robust reds, crisp whites, or subtle rosés, she’ll find this book packed with information, how-tos, and trivia that will make her love wine even more.
Cuisinart Private Reserve 8-Bottle Wine Cellar
She may not be able to have her own personal wine cellar, yet, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still feel like she has a fancy collection to show off for family and friends. Designed to fit on countertops, this compact, slim wine cellar from Cuisinart holds up to eight full-sized bottles of wine or champagne. The touchscreen controls on the outer door allow her to select temperatures from 39 to 68 degrees so she can keep her bottles chilled just right, and is a great, affordable option for beginner wine collectors.
Parcelle Wine Drop Subscription
Why should mom be limited to popping bottles of wine only on Mother’s Day or other special occasions? Every day is a day to celebrate, so make sure her bar is well stocked with a wine subscription. Online retailer Parcelle has all kinds of delicious wines and their monthly Wine Drop subscription service features three sommelier-selected bottles for mom to choose from each time a new box drops on her doorstep. Best gift ever, trust us.
