4 “Alternative” Mother’s Day gifts for cool moms

I never know what to get my mom for Mother\’s Day. I usually turn to the internet and google lists for the \”Best Mother\’s Day gifts\”, but they only confuse me further. Why would anyone (let alone my mom) want a personalized charm bracelet with a baby carriage and a dog on it? Also, why are pink garden gloves always on those lists? My mom works, she doesn\’t have time to garden.

Maybe your mom is into all of that stuff, and that\’s ok – But this is a new list for the ones that don\’t want a pillow with dates of her children\’s birth painted on in cursive.

Band Shirt
Instead of another sweatshirt from your college with \”MOM\” underneath the logo, get her a tee from her favorite band. Some of our favorite picks are this Foo Fighters raglan shirt, this new Cage The Elephant longsleeve, and this chill Young The Giant shirt.

Punk Hot Sauce
Did you know that Dexter Holland, singer for legendary punk band \”The Offspring\”, has his own line of hot sauces? Yep, Gringo Bandito is his creation, and it\’s fantastic.

Feel-Good Coffee
A coffee bag and travel tumbler from Sip of Hope can keep your ma caffeinated on the go while she\’s doing cool mom stuff. She can also feel good while doing it, because 100% of their proceeds support proactive suicide prevention and mental health education. The cherry on top? Their designs look really badass.

PIQNIQ Tickets
You probably saw this one coming, but hear me out…cool moms love spending time with their cool kids. Buy a pair of tickets to see an amazing line-up together. Just be sure to either get seats or bring a lawn chair for her (even cool moms need time to sit and recharge sometimes).
