Glad Mors Dag! Swedish Gifts For Mother’s DayMay 6, 2019
Mother’s Day in the United States is just around the corner (Sunday, May 12), and even though the Swedes celebrate their mors the last Sunday in May, we’re going to share some gift ideas in time for whenever you plan to treat the woman who raised you.
Summery peep-toe clogs from Lotta from Stockholm ($84)
It’s cliché, but ladies love their footwear, and if your lady is like the ladies in our lives, they typically celebrate Mother’s Day with a fresh pedi. We love these bright yellow clogs from Lotta from Stockholm. Pedi and a peep-toe? Perfect.
Luscious new lipstick from IDUN Minerals ($19.20)
OK, this may be a gamble if you don’t know your lady, but if she’s into makeup, a fresh fun color could be an awesome pick-me-up. We’re liking Frida, which is a nice soft pink – perfect for spring and summer outfits.
Boho pants from Gudrun Sjödén ($79)
We’re here for these pants from Gudrun Sjödén. They’re made from organic cotton, they’re loose fitting, and they have a stretchy waist. These are perfect as the weather gets warmer, but you want to block out a little bit of sun.
Chic, white backpack from Sandqvist ($119)
When you are constantly juggling kids, being hands-free is crucial. Our mom actually just got a Fjällräven (so trendy, ma), but you could also get her a Sandqvist bag – like this super-chic, all-white leather and cotton bag.
Furniture speakers from IKEA + Sonos (TBD)
If your mom is supportive of an I.O.U., consider making a coupon book redeemable for some kick-ass speakers from IKEA + Sonos. They’re coming out this summer, but these suckers are awesome. We’re already seeing her reading in bed with music coming out of her table lamp.
Mothers see-all necklace from Sägen ($178.10)
It’s hard to get away with something when mom is around. Even when she’s down the hallway, SHE KNOWS. That’s why this eye necklace from Sägen is perfect. It comes in both gold and silver.
Candles of love from Skandinavisk ($45)
This company is so wonderfully Scandinavian – it is based in Copenhagen, but we love its vibe. You can explore their offerings by products or scents – which we totally appreciate. Try this Lempi candle, which is Old Finnish for “love.”
Tortoise shell hater blockers from Nividas ($116)
We’re calling these sunglasses tortoise shell, but Nividas is calling them camo – either way, we’re supportive of getting mom these glasses. These frames are a classic silhouette and have polarized frames.
Peace and quiet (FREE)
Any moms out there who simply want to be left alone for an hour or so? Take a hint husbands and children, this is a FREE gift you can give and trust us, it is likely at the top of her list.
