Mother's Day Gift Guide
Posted on May 06 2015
Mother's Day is almost here! While we hope you're showing the moms in your life the love and respect they deserve all year-round, it's always fun to treat them to something extra on this occasion. And whether you're shopping for your mom, for your partner, for a new mom, or for yourself (because, you know, treat yo' self mamas!), Lille has tons of options any woman will love.
For Your Mom When shopping for your mom, comfort and luxury are words you should keep in mind. A beautiful robe like the Estelle or Aubrey styles can be the perfect practical-yet-pretty gift. Along those lines, a great PJ set like the Alex Dolman Top and Pants would be a comfy and fashionable sleepwear option for her. We love anything made by Skin—all of their pieces are made of the absolute softest 100% cotton—and since even the best-dressed moms can always use classic basics, stocking her up with their camis or tees would be thoughtful treat. If you want to push her out of her comfort zone a little, though, whimsical socks from Hansel from Basel are a fun choice too.
For Your Partner We've had a bunch of requests in this realm already: customers looking to buy something for their partner that toes the line between pretty/sexy and family-appropriate (in case the kids decide to climb in bed with you unannounced at 5:00 am). For that, you can't go wrong with sleepwear from Eberjey. We're loving the Manuela, Golden Girl, and Quinn chemises, and cute cami/short sets like the In The Clouds or Baxter would be great too, if she's more interested in separates.
If you're looking for a gift that the kiddos aren't going to help pick out—and want to get her something that will make her feel like the hot mama she is—a beautiful set from Stella McCartney or Huit would do the trick. We also love the Mira group from Fortnight; the slip is a best-seller, season after season!
For New Moms With so many new and expectant mothers coming in the shop these days, we can only imagine this has to be a first Mother's Day for a lot of women. Congrats, new mamas—hopefully you get some extra sleep this weekend!
If she's nursing, we have a ton of great maternity bras to choose from. Want something basic? The Croissant Flexible Wire, Maternelle, or Camille Lace Cross styles are great neutrals for everyday. In need of something more special? We love the color and pattern of the Madeline, Elodie, and Momamia options. Beyond bras, we have a ton of cute loungewear for when mom and baby are spending lots of time at home—some styles, like the Reversible Dress, are even designed specifically with nursing in mind.
For Yourself I don't think you probably need too much guidance here, mamas, you know what you like. Perhaps it's time to stock up on some great new basics (the Pima Goddess or Cotton Sensation are some of our go-tos) or treat yourself to something a little fancier, if you're needing it. Don't forget to show yourself the same TLC that you show your family—you deserve it!
