From decadent treats that are meant to be savored to goodies that are ideal for moms who love art and design, the items below are unique in their use of color, form, packaging and/or creativity. Don’t assume that a classic gift idea can’t be an unforgettable one–sometimes a tried and true beloved treasure can make a big statement. We’ve organized our gift ideas into helpful categories, and we’ve included links with purchasing information for your convenience. Happy shopping, and most of all, Happy Mother’s Day!
Decadent Mother’s Day Gifts
We begin with a series of Mother’s Day gifts that celebrate decadence. Doesn’t Mom deserve to indulge? On that note, it’s hard to get more indulgent than macarons, those treats made from two cookies with a flavored filling in the center! Surprise a special lady with this Set of 24 Assorted Parisian Macarons from Sur La Table. Although not all pictured, this gift set features six flavors: lemon, raspberry, vanilla, chocolate, coffee and pistachio. We at Decoist have made no secret of our love for macarons–they can even inspire design that looks good enough to eat!
Add layers of sweetness to the mix with this Mousse Duo Collection (Set of 12), also from Sur La Table. Hand-crafted from all-natural ingredients, the set features three individual mousse duos: double chocolate, raspberry lemon, and cappuccino chocolate. Mom gets four of each, and yes, these desserts can easily be shipped to her door!
Gourmet macarons for Mother’s Day
What could be more decadent than beautifully packaged gift soaps? Especially when they come from the renowned Portuguese brand Claus Porto! Below we see a range of eye-catching wrapped bars featuring motifs that range from the regal to the Art Nouveau. No need for gift paper–all each of these gorgeous items requires is a bow.

Speaking of flawless packaging, it’s hard to top the toile- and tassel-covered boxes that surround Seda France candles. This is one of those rare cases in which you CAN judge a book by its cover! With fragrances like Grapefruit Paradis and French Tulip (a classic), the allure of each scent matches the allure of the packaging. And if you’re interested, Seda France also offers a selection of Mother’s Day candles! [from ProductWiki]
