Pressed for time but want to get something special for Mom for Mother’s Day?

Not to worry, N Magazine has got you covered! We’ve rounded up a special list of gifts Mom is sure to love, no matter where her passions lie. Read on to find out more about our picks.


If your mom is happiest with her nose in a book, grab her The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy. It’s the most highly anticipated book of the summer, and soon to be a major motion picture starring Scandal’s Kerry Washington. The addictive psychological thriller follows a group of women whose lives become unexpectedly connected when one of their newborns goes missing. A definite page-turner for the beach this summer!



All moms love a little pampering, and R.J. Miller is the perfect place to go for all her spa and beauty needs. Pick up a few bottles of shampoo and conditioner from prestige hair line Living Proof, which will be sure to keep her tresses in tip-top shape. The salon offers many other lines of beauty products, including Oribe, Prive, and Moroccan Oil. Take home a gift card while you’re at it for a blowout or haircut for her — something she will surely appreciate!




Could your mom use a little Nantucket-inspired bling? Look no further than this glittering ring from Jewel in the Sea. Available in 14K yellow gold or sterling silver, this gem — featuring a mini map of Nantucket — starts at $150 and will remind your mom of her favorite place every time she looks down. Jewel in the Sea has plenty of jewelry options to fit every budget, so you’re sure to find a bracelet, necklace, earring or other Nantucket-inspired charm that she’ll love!




Whether it be for decoration at home or a piece of Nantucket on the go, give Mom this unique scarf from Murray’s Toggery Shop. The retro scenes on this 100% silk beauty are designed by Alfred De Angelo and represent so many special and historic pieces of Nantucket. Murray’s has a bevy of options to suit Mom, and it’s worth popping in the store to have a look. Not on-island? Their website is extensive, and offers their entire Nantucket Reds Collection!



If you’re ready to spend a little more than usual this Mother’s Day, this mini basket from Nantucket Looms is the perfect gift that Mom will treasure for years to come. The heart-shaped keepsake designed by Dale Rutherford is constructed of cane wood and features an ivory scrimshawed heart on the inside bottom with the word “Mother.” Although it’s on the pricier end at $600, it is a truly sweet and memorable gift. Nantucket Looms has many other Mom-approved items, like handwoven wraps, Liz Roache Nantucket prints, and signature candles.



Give Mom the chance to have a night out on the town with a gift card to Cru. Whether it be date night or girl’s night, she’ll love savoring oysters and rosé at Nantucket’s hottest harbor restaurant this summer. It’s also the perfect gift for a mom who is hard to shop for — and we all know Moms deserve a chance to let their hair down and enjoy the finer things in life. Here’s to all the Moms out there!
