After an unconventional year in a global pandemic where many mothers juggled remote work and homeschooling children, things are beginning to look up. As the pandemic begins to wind down, mothers are in the unique position of making big choices about their next steps. Whether the plan is to return to work, to start a new business, or to return to packing children’s lunches for school, many moms are beginning to adjust to new changes once again.
If you have a mother in your life, and you want to support her, there are some fantastic gift ideas for mothers in 2021. With new trends toward online shopping, finding the perfect gift for the mom in your life is easy, too. For some ideas to get you started with must-haves for moms in 2021, read on.
A New Wardrobe
Many moms have spent more than a year in stretch pants and sweatshirts doing what they can to homeschool children during Covid-19 restrictions and closings. For this reason, most moms would love any new addition to their wardrobe. While it’s unlikely most mothers will ever want to put those comfy stretch pants down on weekends, it might be time to get back to more formal clothes for going out.
Think about the mom in your life and consider her goals. Is she planning on returning to an office job? Has she decided to return to school? Has she started her own business? Will she continue to stay home with the kids? In looking at her future plans, you’ll be in a better position to know where to start when it comes to helping her build back her wardrobe.
For mothers returning to the office, bootcut pants and tailored blazers could be a great fit. For mothers happier at home, new women’s stretch pants that will offer them comfort as they play with the kids are a great idea.
Fun Activities to Do with Kids
After more than a year of finding ways to stimulate a child’s imagination at home, many mothers would love the help of new toys and things like magnetic blocks to stimulate their kids. The reality is that, especially for adults, children’s toys can get boring. In searching for new toys that any mom will enjoy, too, you’ll be giving her a gift. Magnetic building toys, for example, are a great way to keep Mom interested as she spends those creative afternoons with the kids.
Self Care Products and Spas
After making it through the bulk of the pandemic, many moms are ready to get back to self-care routines. If the mother in your life used to get her nails done or go to the spa regularly, now’s the right time to consider gift certificates. Other mom must-haves might be things like bubble bath potions, bath bombs, candles, and essential oils. Gifting self-care products to any mom on your list is a great way to remind her that she matters, too.
Moms’ Night Out
Moms are human beings like anyone else. For this reason, it’s important that they get days off. While most mothers enjoy spending a lot of time with their children, it’s important that they get breaks. A great gift for a mom who’s been home with kids throughout the pandemic is a girls’ night out. Consider having a conversation with the mom in your life and asking how you can help her to get some time off for herself with friends.
In the end, the mom in your life will appreciate the thought you put into any gift you give. Whether it’s babysitting and a gift card for a mom’s night out or the perfect new blazer for her return to work, your taking the time to appreciate her hard work will go over well. As you shop for the mom in your life, don’t forget to think of fun ways to celebrate how far you’ve come as well. Adding a personalized note about your journey together could be a perfect way to make that gift even more meaningful. Happy shopping to you!
