11 Thoughtful Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is a special day to celebrate the women who have brought us into the world and nurtured us to become the people we are today. It's a lovely day to relish in the sacrifice that mothers give daily and the love and grace they extend endlessly. Our company is filled with biological mothers, aunts, and those who step in when a helping hand is needed, and we are better for it. Moms do make the world keep spinning, and we're forever grateful.

To celebrate the mothers who have raised us well, we want to give back a thoughtful gift that makes them feel special. Here are eleven gift ideas that will make her feel loved on her special day!

7. Laurel Machine and Foundry Skillet 

No cook is worth their salt without a good cast iron skillet in their cupboard. This is Erin's favorite, made by Lodge with the Laurel Machine & Foundry emblem cast into the bottom. Our skillets are paired best with our handmade leather skillet handle covers and cast iron oil and soap


8. Handmade Leather Purse

Our American-made leather purse is handcrafted and designed to last a lifetime. It was created to hold the perfect amount of accessories, and it can be dressed up and even used for workwear, as it can carry a small laptop. This gift will impress your momma and maybe even score you an extra slice of pie or pear cake. 


9. Tocca Perfume

Tocca is of the highest quality and has the prettiest packaging. Best of all, it's made right here in the USA. Liliana is charming and conjures the mood of a Jazz Age garden party reveler filling the night with joie de vivre. (It's also Emily's favorite!) See more here!


10. Make Something Good Today, A Memoir by Erin and Ben Napier

Make Something Good Today offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of a couple that America has come to know and love for their easy humor, adoring relationship, and ability to utterly transform a place into something beautiful and personal. This is the poignant story of how Erin and Ben took a small, tight-knit town into their own hands (literally) and used ingenuity, community, and authenticity to rebuild a once-thriving American Main Street. And how, by combining Ben's carpentry skills with Erin's design eye, Home Town is making it clear that small-town living can feel as big as you make it. Purchase your copy here!


11. Family Recipes & Stories (Volumes I, II, and III)

Erin, her mama, and our closest friends and family compiled this informal field guide of the family recipes that come out of our ovens the most, from Mammaw Ouida's buttermilk biscuits to Mallorie's famous jambalaya, Erin's spaghetti and meatballs, and Big Ben's chili. Funny short stories about southern cooking are woven throughout the book, making the perfect gift. See the whole collection here!

For more inspiration, Erin's mother, Karen Rasberry, wrote a special letter to her late mother that might make you reach for a tissue or two. Give it a read here!
