6 Unique Mother's Day Gifts for 2024

May is here, and with it comes a day to celebrate the mothers in our lives. Finding that perfect gift for Mother's Day can be a bit daunting, especially if you want to give something thoughtful and unique. Here are a few of our favorites here at Thriae:

1. Turkish Peshtemal Towels:
Of course, our top recommendation is going to be one of our peshtemals. If you are here, you already know that a Turkish peshtemal towel is not just a regular towel - it's a luxurious and versatile piece that can be used as a beach towel, bath towel, or even as a stylish accessory. This makes it the perfect gift for a mom who appreciates style and functionality. A few of our favorites are the Koressos, the Pergamum, and the Pagos

2. Spa Gift Basket
Ok, so maybe this is not the most "unique" of gifts, but with a world of options out there, this gift does not have to be boring. Plus, who doesn't love to receive the gift of self-care? A box or basket filled with luxurious products like lotions, washes, candles, and teas is a slam dunk. We are obsessed with this Summer Spa Gift Basket from Santa Barbara Company, which is a small, women-owned business. Check out their website, there are so many beautiful sets to choose from. 

3. E-reader or Kindle
If your mom loves to read, consider gifting her an e-reader or Kindle so she can enjoy her favorite books anytime, anywhere. Opt for the latest model with a glare-free screen and long battery life for hours of reading pleasure. Even batter, add a subscription for unlimited digital books or a gift card so she can download her favorites right away.

4. Succulent Planter Set
For the green-thumbed mom (or perhaps to ease in one with a brown thumb!), a succulent planter set is perfect. Succulents are low-maintenance plants that add a touch of greenery and style to any space. This Jewel Garden Set from Lula's Garden is minimalist and sleek, and also gives back: the company supports We love any business that gives back!

5. Cooking Class Experience
If the mom in your life is a foodie or loves to cook, why not gift her a cooking class experience? Whether it's learning how to make homemade pasta, mastering the art of French pastries, or honing her knife skills, a cooking class is a fun and interactive gift that she will truly appreciate. 

6. The Subscription Gift
This is the gift that keeps on giving and one that is sure to please. There are so many different kinds of subscription boxes out there with one, three, six, or full year gifting options. Favorite subscriptions to gift include tea, chocolate, cookies, and even soap. But our favorite find is Artvana's paint at home kits, where the giftee receives the supplies and video tutorials to create beautiful art.
