Thoughtful Mothers day gifts: Impress with style

Celebrating Mother's Day in the workplace.

We are here to offer you a selection of custom corporate gifts that are both qualitative and long-lasting. As we're approaching Mother's Day, we've decided it would be interesting to make a list of good and fun Mother's Day gift ideas to reward the mothers (or mother figures) of your business.

Mother's Day is a holiday in many countries dedicated to celebrating and honoring mothers, mother figures, maternal bonds, and motherhood. It is celebrated on different dates at different times of the year around the world. In the US, Mother's Day is celebrated on the 14th of May.

It is important to celebrate Mother's Day for the purpose of rewarding those who play mother roles in our daily lives for all the sacrifices and hard work they go through and to acknowledge the influence of mothers in society.

Nowadays, it is common for a parent to raise their children while also supporting their family. After a long day at work, many mothers have to pick up their children, make food, do household chores, spend time with the family, and only then, if they are not too tired yet, can they have a little bit of time for themselves. So, showing that your company cares about the lives of your coworkers and employees, both inside and outside of work, is a significant gesture.

Offering a thoughtful gift to your mom coworkers and the mothers in your team will also nurture a positive office culture that values the well-being of employees and their families while reflecting a supportive work environment.

And what's a better way to gift the mothers at work with an as beautiful as sustainable gift, that they would actually want, and that it'll last a looong time? You choose the product, we'll insert your logo.

Team picks - inspiration from our mothers.

We've asked our team to ask their mothers which of our custom products they'd be happy to receive from our catalog. Here are some of their top picks that can serve as inspiration for corporate Mother's Day gifts for your team:

It can be hard to keep everything intact in a woman's bag with a mother's life. The Felt eyeglass sleeve is soft and strong, the sleeve is made of Merino wool to store your sunnies with style. This will keep the glasses of the mothers on your team safe.

A great Mother's Day gift, one that is - for sure - a perfect gift, is the Glass candle. You can't miss out on this one. 100% organic candle made from natural soy wax and lasts for houuurs. Great to place on your desk at the office to create a relaxing and clean environment.

Our Walden custom products were among the most mentioned goods that our mothers would like to receive.

The Walden travel pillow provides comfort for your head without lifting it too much. It features a soft-touch fabric made in Japan. This pillow will help the mind settle into the body and the body settle into the space.

For the yogi moms out there: the Walden meditation cushion. Designed to support meditation practice. It features an all-natural, hypoallergenic fill of buckwheat hulls that conform to the body, and a layer of gel-infused memory foam on top for added comfort. By adding your design or logo to the strap, you can make it your company's. Now all you have to do is find time to sit.

Everyday essentials for working mothers.

Starting off with two beautiful and practical bags for the mothers in your office. If you can actually decide between the two of them, customize them with your logo or design and it'll be a perfect Mother's Day gift they'll carry everywhere.

First off, the Felt tote - made from recycled felt - is what we like to call an all-purpose bag. Big and classic enough to be around in all situations. This is the most stylish tote you think of when you envision the perfect tote to gift a mother. The perfect tote for a working mother, with a charcoal tone, it's elegant and looks professional.

This one was also a pick from the mother of our team: Baggu oversized bag. This bag can be packed into its own exterior pocket for easy storage, it has long and short straps to carry in different ways, you choose, and top zip closure. It's the perfect lightweight bag to take everywhere. And the color? So pretty! It can hold your laptop, a change of clothes, a bag of oranges, or whatever else you need.

An everyday essential that a woman loves and cares about, is the Key chain. Easy gift, and a purchase your company won't regret as it can be used for other occasions as well - like events, for example. Gifting the Key chain to the mothers in the company is, certainly, a detail they will not forget. At Merchery, we love to offer it as welcome gifts for new employees as well.

A bonding Mother's Day - fun activities.

Planting a tree is a fun and simple way to encourage new generations to care for and provide for the planet. It's a gift that keeps on giving, as trees continue to provide benefits to the environment and those around them for years to come. It also provides an opportunity for children to learn about the importance of taking care of the environment and the impact that small actions, like planting a tree, can have on the world around us.

Planting a tree. The Tree kit - water daily and enjoy watching it grow.

A great gift for mothers that have been mothers for a long time or for new mothers. Planting a tree and watching it grow throughout the years is a beautiful thing. Even better if it's a memory created between a mother and their children. It's a good way to celebrate motherhood and the new life that has come into the world.

If you don't have space to plant a tree, you can still enjoy the benefits of growing a plant with the Grow Kit. This tiny terracotta kit provides everything you need to nurture and grow a houseplant.
