With Mother’s Day around the bend, many people find themselves scrambling to find the perfect gift. So what is something that will not break the bank, can see some genuine use, and still shows the mom in your life that you care? It is a worthwhile goal to try and make a good showing this holiday, and it is not as hard as it may seem. Take a look at this list of 2022 home decor Mother’s Day gifts to give yourself a head start on tracking down the best gift you can.

A Machine Washable Rug

Depending on the material and the level of daily wear and tear, the average rug only lasts around 5 to 10 years before it needs to be replaced. If the mother you are celebrating this May has little ones at home, that likely means a lot of spills, stains, and mess. So, if you are thinking of gifting a rug, make sure it is machine washable. Machine washable rugs often come in two parts: a lightweight cover and a rug pad that it is secured to. When the rug cover gets dirty, just pull it off and throw it in the washer.

A Ceramic Bowl

Sometimes a room lacks something to pull it all together, or a table is missing just the right centerpiece. A ceramic bowl is the perfect piece of home decor to solve that problem. It is a part of interior design trends in 2022 because it is versatile, changes with the seasons, and can be put in any room.

An Air Plant and Decorative Planter

Air plants are low maintenance and easy to care for as they take in nutrients and water through their leaves. By giving the air plants a spritz of water a couple of times a week and ample sunlight, they can thrive. There are many different kinds of air plants that come in different shapes, colors, and sizes. Along with a wide variety of different air plants to give, there are many creative and cool different types of planters. Hanging planters such as this one are a part of top influencer home decor picks. They are easy to incorporate anywhere, making them top interior design tips for beginners.

A Cheeseboard

If your mom likes to cook or entertain, get her a present that is beautiful as it is functional. This petrified wood cheese board is unique and fits just about any interior design kitchen idea or style. Everything can be made better with cheese, even Mother’s Day.

A Bar Cart

The bar cart has seen a revival in popularity since its heyday in the 1920s. Even now, they possess a sort of elegance and allure. These carts, also called tea trolleys, have a place in every home, making them great Mother's Day gifts and a source of inspiration for new home decor ideas. In the kitchen, dining room, or patio, a bar cart is a convenient place to put bottles of wine, liquor, or other spirits and serving ware. No more digging through the cabinets to try to find the wine glasses. And, of course, a bar cart does not have to be used just for alcoholic drinks! A bar cart fits in just as well in the living room as an accent table or in the bedroom as a nightstand. Not enough storage in the bathroom? You can see where this is going.

A Waterfall Incense Burner

A waterfall incense burner, also known as a backflow burner, is a unique piece of home decor. These burners are typically made of ceramic pottery shaped into a tiered mountain with a small divot to hold an incense cone at the top. When the cone is lit, the smoke glides down the tiers into a pool at the bottom like a mystical mountain. Backflow incense burners and scented cones are available in many varieties.

Paper Flowers

Flowers are so popular a gift for Mother’s Day that they are nearly essential. However, the impact that the import, transportation, and decomposition of floral arrangements have on our environment is real and not sustainable. Paper flowers may be a good alternative to a traditional boutique and great home decor tips. Unwilted paper flower arrangements are made from FSC-certified sustainably-sourced materials, use non-toxic dyes, and avoid plastic in the manufacturing and packaging process. The botanical beauties mimic their natural counterparts down to the crease, cut, and fold. And, unlike real flowers, these blooms never even wilt.

A Lamp

Everyone has a lamp, but far fewer have the perfect lamp to pull the look of their room together. Take this Clement Lamp, for instance. Its white cotton and brass base complement each other perfectly and can help you create a look for your home that is both modern and approachable. If you want to combine this suggestion with some further interior design lighting tips, this particular light works well for spaces that utilize both dark and light colors together. That said, brass is a pretty versatile look, and it can easily help develop the right rustic or eclectic look, too.
