15 Best Cozy Gifts Mom Will Love For Mother’s Day Or Any Special Occasion!

Style expert, journalist and blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com shares the best cozy gifts for mom just in time for Mother's Day, the holidays, or her birthday! These are beauty, skincare, PJ sets, a Barefoot Dreams blankets and gifts she'll love and utilize throughout the year and many years to come.



The cozy yet luxurious coastal grandmother trend which is sweeping the nation has really been a source of inspiration for me! Content creator, Lex Nicoleta who coined the term is one of the reasons I check TikTok daily (and have started posting more!). My mom and I have always loved watching Nancy Meyers movies together, especially those starring Diane Keaton, and seeing how we can recreate that lifestyle has been fun and inspirational. One thing is for sure, I have gotten pretty good at living the cozy lifestyle over the last few months, life is too short to be anything but comfortable, especially since it’s been such a stressful year for all of us! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, now is a great time to shop for a cozy yet luxurious gift for mom, especially the mom who has everything or can be difficult to shop for.

My mom doesn’t typically get excited about gifts! She’s content when I buy her favorite night cream or makeup. Over the holidays I bought her a Barefoot Dreams throw blanket. I never thought anything could make her so happy. I’m fairly certain that my mother would be thrilled if I purchased her an additional Barefoot Dreams blanket or anything by the brand! Do you know how I can tell if a product is good or well made? If my mom loves it! One thing is for sure, nothing says love quite like a cozy gift she’ll love and utilize daily!

If you’re searching for the perfect cozy gift for mom for Mother’s Day, her birthday, the holidays, and more, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 15 of the best cozy gifts mom will love! 


Pajama Sets Are A Great Cozy Gift For Mom

Pajama sets are life! Over the years I have splurged on a few pairs that I absolutely adore. Nordstrom Moonlight Pajama Sets are typically on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and surprisingly are on sale right now! Since I love leopard print so much, I bought the leopard print long pant/long sleeve set and the short sleeve/short set and couldn’t be happier. The weather has been fairly cool here again in Northern California so I have been living in the long pants/long sleeve pajama set. In fact, I love it so much that I purchased this PJ set in classic black this week as well. The material is soft and feels luxurious! I sleep better when I wear them and plan on purchasing a few more sets. These fabulous pajamas come in a wide array of colors and prints. They are the perfect gift for the mom or grandma in your life!

I’m obsessed with these soft, luxurious, and affordable pajamas in black with white contrast piping. They are so comfortable, and cozy and they make you feel like a million bucks. They’re on sale for $52 with free shipping and are an absolute must. The reviews state that they run large and to size down, but I didn’t find that to be necessary. I am petite, but have long legs and felt that the long pants and long sleeve pajama top fit me just fine.

If you love leopard print as much as I do (or your mom does!) you definitely need these chic Nordstrom Lingerie Moonlight Pajamas in the color “Brown Brownie Animal Prints.” These pajamas are gorgeous, well made, and look amazing on! They are currently on sale for $39.99 with free shipping. They’ll make a great gift for Mother’s Day, a friend’s birthday, or as a gift for yourself! I adore them so much that I had to buy them in black so I could alternate. They are the best!

With spring upon us and summer-like weather hopefully making its way soon, now is a great time to splurge on a great short pajama set for mom! I purchased mine in leopard print which has since sold out. Thankfully the famed Nordstrom Moonlight Short Pajamas are now available in a variety of prints including this beautiful floral print called “grey micro tonal floral” with pink contrast piping. They are lovely, feel luxurious, and will make the perfect gift for her (or yourself)!

The Coziest Robe On The Planet

Years ago I was an Aveeno brand ambassador and was gifted this plush Pottery Barn Teddy Bear Robe. It is one of my most prized possessions! It is so cozy, and warm and makes me feel so relaxed the minute I put it on. This robe comes in three colors: ivory, gray, or blush, and multiple sizes. The best part is it is currently on sale, so you can buy one for your mom and for yourself as well!

The Barefoot Dreams Blanket Is The Ultimate Cozy Gift For Mom

If you’re looking for the perfect throw blanket for your sofa or while watching a movie in bed, you can’t go wrong with a Barefoot Dreams Throw Blanket! My mother who is the most honest and sometimes critical (sorry mom!) person on the planet credits this blanket as one of the best gifts I’ve ever given her. I bought it before the holidays because I wanted to see if the blanket lived up to the hype – boy did it ever! My mom absolutely adores it. She says it’s the coziest and warmest lightweight blanket. It is very soft and comes in quite a few different colors and prints. I bought her the Barefoot Dreams In The Wild Blanket in charcoal and black. This color combination is perfect for the living room or bedroom!

This gorgeous blanket which is beloved by celebrities, influencers, women, men, babies, kids of all ages, and pets is a must! While it does retail for $180 (with free shipping) this luxurious and incredibly soft throw blanket is definitely worth it!

Skincare Essentials That Will Make A Cozy Self Care Gift Or Mother’s Day Present

I’m OBSESSED with Necessaire skincare essentials. I struggled for years to find amazing fragrance-free skincare products for the body. I’m so thankful that the top beauty bloggers and influencers started sharing how amazing Necessaire is. I’ve been using their products for nearly two years I believe and they are definitely worth the price. If the mom in your life loves fragrance-free products (or prefers sandalwood, eucalyptus, or bergamot), she’s in luck as Necessaire carries a variety of scents and unscented products Today, I’m excited to share a few favorites and a few I’ve gifted my mom as well.

First on my list is this Necessaire The Body Exfoliant. It is perfect for my dry sensitive skin and a variety of skin types! I use it once a week or when I know I’m going to self-tan. It exfoliates well and doesn’t irritate the skin. This amazing product has 4.7 out of 5 stars on the Nordstrom website and is highly recommended on various social media platforms! Some have even said that it’s cleared their KP! I think this product is fantastic.

Sara Foster is one of my favorite celebrities to follow online! She’s a busy mom-on-the-go who has an amazing skin care regimen. She recently shared how much she loved Necessaire The Body Serum, so I decided to purchase it during the holidays. It is phenomenal! This fantastic body serum is “a daily hyaluronic acid treatment for the body that hydrates, replenishes, and plumps the skin.” I use it every time I get out of the shower. This body serum is very hydrating and a little goes a long way. It is fragrance-free, which is a must for me! This serum will be a great gift on its own or along with the other Necessaire products I’ve featured as well.

The phenomenal multivitamin rich NÉCESSAIRE The Body Lotion is one of the first products I purchased from the brand and that really won me over! I quickly became obsessed with this fragrance-free lotion and NÉCESSAIRE in general. My only wish is they’d create facial skincare products as I would buy them all! This amazing body lotion doesn’t irritate my skin, is the ideal moisturizer for every day, and is a must before you self-tan! It has over 700 great 4.7 out of 5-star reviews. This fragrance-free lotion is perfect for the mom in your life and will make a phenomenal gift for yourself or your bestie.

Must Have Vitamin C Oil For Mom

I have been using Niacinamide for a few years and it’s improved the look and feel of my skin dramatically. About a month ago I splurged on Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil because I read how great it is for anti-aging, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin. Friends, I’m hooked. It is “An instantly absorbing face oil with advanced vitamin C, turmeric, and evening primrose oil to brighten, hydrate, and glow. This luxurious face oil is phenomenal and hasn’t caused any breakouts since I started using it! I’m sensitive to fragrances, and this scent is divine. I use a couple of drops on my skin every morning and then apply a Sunday Riley moisturizer on top of that.

Must Have Blue Light Therapy Device For Acne

Nothing says cozy quite like a beauty treatment, getting a massage, having your hair done, or relaxing on the sofa with a mask! My skin gave me a really difficult time this past winter. It’s been a very stressful year for my family and I and my skin has really taken a toll. My acne and rosacea got bad in November, improved for a month, and then got really bad in January. I no longer use many of the skincare products I used to, my skin now loves Sunday Riley, Necessaire and my LightStim Acne LED Light Therapy Device. This amazing device uses blue light therapy to kill acne bacteria. According to the Nordstrom website it ” heals and calms existing blemishes while calming redness and inflammation, minimizing future breakouts and killing P. acnes-causing bacteria. It is FDA-cleared to treat mild to moderate acne.”

Words can’t even begin to describe how bad my skin was from mid-January to the end of February. I didn’t post any pictures of myself online because it was so bad. Other than getting sick in January, I couldn’t quite put my finger on what caused my skin to get so bad. I was breaking out on my nose and on my cheeks. I’d purchased the Lightstim Acne LED Light Therapy Device a few years ago, but my skin had improved at that point so I didn’t use it. It wasn’t until my skin got bad this winter that I started using it religiously. I use it every single night and it’s made a world of difference on my skin. Yes, I still get a few pimples from time to time, but it’s nothing compared to what it was. I’m obsessed with this gadget. Every night before I go to bed, I spend about 30 minutes using this gadget and listening to my favorite book on Audible! It’s how I relax before bed, and is something I look forward to.

If the mom in your life has struggled with acne breakouts, she may be interested in this blue light therapy device. Masks and light therapy are all the rage these days, so I wanted to share this with all of you! It’s made a world of difference for me, and I hope it helps you (or her) too!!! This article from Healthline shares the pros and cons, risks, and health benefits of using blue light therapy for acne if you’re interested in learning more!


Tea Is The Perfect Gift For Mom Or Grandma!

Nothing says cozy like relaxing with your favorite cup of tea. My aunt lives in Seattle and she used to send this MarketSpice Cinnamon Orange Tea to my grandma when I was a young teen. It was always a special treat when she’d share it with all of us! This delicious cinnamon orange tea has long been my favorite. The decaffeinated version makes me feel relaxed. The caffeinated version is perfect for starting one’s day. It is available on Amazon and is ideal for the mom, grandma, aunt, or godmother in your life! It tastes great hot and is fabulous as iced tea as well.
