Ayesha Curry Dishes on the Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas to Upgrade the Everyday
The Sweet July founder and cookbook author, who shares daughters Riley, 8, and Ryan, 5, and son Canon, 2, with her NBA star husband Steph Curry, suggests perfect presents for the hardworking mom in your life
“You can never have enough hydration with all the handwashing happening these days,” Curry says. "This Beauty Butter from 54 Thrones is ultra-moisturizing, and their gift tin lets mom sample five of their heavenly flavors, like Ugandan Vanilla + Ethiopian Honey or my favorite, Egyptian Lavender + Moroccan Mint.”

A Bath Time Game Changer
“If a relaxing soak is on your mom’s list of favorite things, gift her the perfect bath accessory," says Curry. "This bathtub caddy can prop up a book or magazine, has a slot to keep her phone dry and even a drink holder for a nice glass of wine after a long day.” Extendable sides with non-slip silicone grips allow it to fit almost every tub.

“Chances are, over the past several months, mom’s pots and pans have been working overtime. A new cookware set is the perfect gift to help her get reinspired in the kitchen," Curry says, recommending her 12-piece collection, which includes skillets, saucepans, a dutch oven (pictured) and more. "With a nonstick interior, clean-up will be a breeze.”

A Houseplant with Heart
“Flowers are great, but why not gift Mom something she can enjoy longer?” Curry says. "This Philodendron Heartleaf from Bloomscape requires little to no maintenance and even has heart-shaped leaves, which couldn’t be more appropriate for Mother’s Day.”

“I love a gift that keeps on giving, and a subscription is just that," Curry says, recommending her Sweet July brand's coffee and tea subscription service, which delivers either two or four bags (14 oz. bags for coffee, 3.4 oz. for tea) every month. "My girls and I have been ending each night with a cup of Sweet Dreams tea, infused with cardamom, fennel and valerian root, which I plan to gift my mom and grandma this Mother’s Day!"

Neck Rubs on Demand
“A spa day might not be in the cards right now, but you can still help Mom indulge in a little self-care at home,” Curry says, recommending this heated shoulder and neck massager. "It's a gamechanger — and at this price, you might as well grab one for yourself, too.”
