Is your mom a tea lover? Mine certainly is! And with Mother’s Day fast approaching, I’m already gathering up tea gifts for mom. If you’ve been struggling to find something for the tea loving lady in your life, here are over twenty Mother’s Day tea gifts we know mom will adore.
For Early Rising Moms
If your mom is anything like mine, mornings come early and caffeine is a much-needed commodity. We have a full lineup of caffeinated teas that are ready to help with mom’s get-up-and-go.
Our popular Oregon Breakfast tea is a great choice for moms who might typically reach for coffee, while Earl Grey loving mommas will appreciate both the Mindful Morning (Earl Grey with vanilla) and Delightful Morning (Earl Grey with lavender) blends. Those who really need to jumpstart their day will thank you for introducing them to matcha green tea powder (it has three times the caffeine of a regular cup of tea!) or to our Scottish breakfast-style Heritage Blend black tea. If your mom has a sensitivity to caffeine or is pregnant or nursing, don’t worry! She’ll love the apricot and light floral notes of our caffeine-free Rise & Shine herbal blend.
Tea infusers can make it easy for mom to make tea in a hurry. Our exclusive Love & Magic Tea Nest is a cinch to use and is easy to clean, while these handy paper filter bags are perfect for moms on the go. You can also show her some extra love every morning with a cute mesh heart infuser.
For Moms Who Need Pampering
If your mom wants anything, it’s probably five minutes to relax by herself. That’s why these Mother’s Day tea gifts are so perfect: They create a little window to relax while making and drinking a cup of tea.
Send her some Self Care blend if you live far away, or run your mom a nice, warm bubble bath and hand her a cup of Relaxing Spa Blend herbal tea if you live nearby; the lemon and lavender notes will imbue calm. Speaking of which, our Inner Calm green tea is excellent for adding a little peace to her life, while the ginger and lemon in the Rejuvenation Blend will give mom a zingy pick-me-up.
Want to stick with a classic Mother’s Day gift? Make her a pot of blackberry-hazelnut Breakfast In Bed tea, delivered with love (and scones!). Send her a guided meditation to listen to while she enjoys that lovely hot cuppa.
For Outdoor Loving Moms
If your mom’s a gardener, she’ll love our elderflower-rose Evening In the Garden herbal and the jasmine notes of our cherry-vanilla Garden Grove green tea. Both make a lovely iced tea for doing yard work on a warm day, and they’re delightful sipping outdoors while mom enjoys the fruits of her labor. For moms who take pride in their rose gardens, the Portland Rose City Chai will receive much praise.
Adventurous moms might prefer to take a thermos of Stargazer Mate Chai with them on a backpacking trip (the caffeine of the mate gives a nice pick-me-up while hiking), or fill a canteen with blueberry-rosemary Meadow Walk herbal tea for their latest bird-watching expedition.
For the Mom Who Has Everything
If she already has a large stock of tea and tea ware, or if she’s one of those hard-to-buy-for types, consider giving mom a subscription to our monthly tea club. She’ll get to try new, exclusive teas every month (plus get lots of other goodies). Or, these other suggested tea gifts for mom might help.
Honey is always a wonderful accompaniment to tea, and our raw creme honey is some of Oregon’s finest. If she prefers sugar, send mom some of our tea sugar crystals — it comes in different flavors that give tea an extra oomph. Or give her a Plum Deluxe digital gift card and let her pick out her own tea treats!
