04.28.2023 — The Frenshe Editors

If you’re looking for a great gift this Mother’s Day, good news: We’ve already scoured the internet to find thoughtful presents for the moms in your life—whether that’s your own parent, moms in your friend group, or yourself. Whatever your budget, whatever your style, you’ll find something that’s easy to wrap up (or even send via email!) in time for May 14.


Being Frenshe$7.99–$16.99

Are we biased in saying that a bundle of Being Frenshe makes a great self-care gift for moms of any age? Maybe a little. But it’s also true! If you want to give a busy mother the gift of not having a thing to stress about, wrap up some Milky Bath Bombs, some Milky Hydrating Lotion, and our Multi-Tasking Body & Scalp Scrub. Then (and this part is crucial!) finish tasks on her to-do list so she can get in some much-deserved R&R.


Silhouette Pendant$180

Before the advent of photography, cut silhouettes were a popular way to capture children’s profiles. This old-fashioned art feels new again when done as a delicate pendant. Available in sterling silver or 14k gold, this custom silhouette pendant is a unique gift that’s especially sweet for mothers of young children.
