It’s been a tough year, but if there’s one thing that hasn’t changed, it’s that Mom deserves the best. Whether you’re fully vaccinated and back with Mom this Mother’s Day or missing her from afar, let her know you’re thinking of her with one of the Nantucket-inspired treats in our gift guide.


1. Clean Beauty from Milly & Grace
Us kids always deprive poor Mom of her beauty sleep, so it’s only fair we try to make up for it with a few extra special beauty presents. That’s where Milly & Grace comes in. Just launched this season, the classic Nantucket boutique now has clean beauty powerhouse brands in-store like Tata Harper, Indie Lee, Innersense, and Earth Harbor. We love them all and we know Mom will too!


2. Serving Dish from Eleish Van Breems
If Mom is the chef in the house, scoop her up a Hado or Hoki Serving Dish from Eleish Van Breems (various prices and sizes, dish pictured is $110). Each piece has a dramatic abstract pattern or whimsical fish design in blue on fine white Swedish porcelain. Bonus: they’re all microwave and dishwasher safe. Bon appetit!


3. Wallpaper from Rifle Paper Co.
For moms who are always looking to tackle a new project in the house, this hydrangea wallpaper ($110 per roll) from Rifle Paper Co. is perfect to bring Nantucket’s favorite summer flower to your home on the mainland. If your mom is a hydrangea-lover but not looking to redecorate, Rifle Paper Co. has plenty of other products in this print – everything from sneakers to phone cases to thermoses.


4. Cashmere Set from REMY Creations
What’s that you say? Mom needs another lounge set? Say no more, we’ve found the best grown-up Mommy and me loungewear situation in the game! Cozy up with mom in this cashmere set from REMY Creations (top $195, bottoms $205). Available in both cream and turquoise, this set (and the matching one for you!) will have you both feeling like two peas in a pod.


5. Golden Girl Book from Nantucket Book Partners
If your mom is a diehard Elin Hilderbrand fan and you’re looking to outdo your siblings this year – this is the ticket. Literally. If you preorder her next book (Golden Girl $35, hitting shelves June 1) via this link, your mom can be entered to win a golden ticket, with the chance for her name to be immortalized in the next Elin Hilderbrand novel The Hotel Nantucket in 2022 (yes that’s right, your mom could be a full-blown character!). Only 5 lucky readers will win, so scoop one up quickly!


6. A Perfume from Nantucket Perfumes
They say that scent can evoke some of our strongest memories, and what better way to bring Mom back to her happy place than bottling the smell of it at the source?! From Nantucket Rain, to Nantucket Spring, to Nantucket Nights, Mom will be transported immediately to the Rock with one of these unique perfumes. Available in a variety of sizes and prices.


7. Gift Set from Centre Pointe
Want to do it up for Mom, but not sure what to get? Let Centre Pointe guide you in the right direction with their curated gift sets (various prices and sizes, set pictured is $185). With themes ranging from at-home spa day to ultimate hostess to summer essentials, Centre Pointe has the perfect curation of all your mom’s favorite things. Looking to build your own set? They’ve also categorized individual Mother’s Day gifts by price, from under $100 up to $500.


8. Mom Necklace from Anna P. Jay
Diamonds are a mom’s best friend (next to you, of course!), so treat Mom to a little extra frosting from Anna P. Jay this Mother’s Day. Choose a new diamond bracelet, or this delicate 14k yellow gold necklace ($325) featuring the word “Mom” with a heart in the center (perfect for new moms!). The best part about giving jewelry as a gift? Unlike clothing, it’s always the right size!


9. Athletic Quarter-Zip from The Tennis Loft
Sporty moms will love (wink, wink) hitting the court in this long-sleeve mock half-zip ($65) from The Tennis Loft. Available with or without the logo and in Navy, Blueberry, New Lime, and Light Rose, this cover-up with Green Grass Tek technology will manage moisture and keep Mom looking cool no matter the sport. Game, set, match.


10. Give a gift to the Nantucket Conservation Foundation in her name
This thoughtful gift is perfect for those whose Moms are nature lovers or have simply always enjoyed our island’s miles of walking trails. We also know that Mother’s Day can be a hard day for those whose moms have passed on, or who don’t have a mom in their life, and this gift can be whatever you’d like it to be – a way to honor her, or Mother Earth, or the place you’ve loved with another motherly figure in your life.
