Make mom feel extra special this Mother’s Day with the 2021 ultimate gift guide
While we’ve missed out on a lot over the past year, celebrating the leading ladies in our lives doesn’t have to be one of them.
The current reality in these “unprecedented times” of acting as parent, professional, teacher, partner, playmate, chef, workout instructor, and maybe more has put many moms in an unprecedented emotional, psychic, mental, and spiritual space.
It’s not uncommon for parents to vacillate between gratitude — for this unexpected time to spend with their families — and despair and worry — for obvious reasons.
It’s also not uncommon for all members of any given family to wear the same sweatpants for days on end. And in the midst of everything, Mother’s Day is right around the corner. To honor the holiday and the women it champions, we have rounded up some very special gift options to let mom know just how much she is appreciated.

Inspired by the classic Rosés of Provence, the winegrowing region in Southern France renowned for its vibrant, beautifully-hued wines, Malene sources traditional Rosé grape varietals — Grenache, Mourvedre and Vermentino (known as Rolle in France) — from California’s Central Coast. As in Provence, this region features Mediterranean climates, sunny and warm during the day but with close proximity to the ocean to cool the vines at night. Made to create happiness, spread optimism and simplify life.
