We’re so excited to present our annual Mother’s Day gift guide for 2014, chock full of more than a hundred of the coolest Mother’s Day gift ideas in every price range. Yes, a hundred! We’ve been busy. You’ll find the coolest gifts for new moms, seasoned moms, DIY and homemade Mother’s Day gifts, gifts for moms from the kids, gifts for grandmas, and even gifts for moms who aren’t your actual mom.
Along with exclusive discount codes (whoo!) throughout the guide, we’ve added a category this year for cool gifts for moms under $25, because we totally get the budget thing. We’re also delighted to include tons of indie picks from smaller businesses and artists, many supporting moms themselves. We love when things work out that way. Happy shopping!
