In The Shop – Shop Spotlight: Get Mom The Gift She Actually Wants

Mother’s Day is almost here and with it the urgency to find the perfect gift. You’re not the person fishtailing out of the flower shop parking lot while scribbling your name on the only card you could find. You’re better prepared than that. You read HODINKEE. And the HODINKEE Shop has you covered. There’s still time to get a present that communicates your thoughtfulness. 

To make things a little easier, we asked several HODINKEE staffers who are moms what they hope to get this year. Obviously, we love watches, so the picks definitely skew toward the horological, but there is something for everyone on this list. We hope these HODINKEE moms’ picks provide inspiration as you decide what to get. We also put together a Mother’s Day Collection, featuring tons of great gifts, and covering a wide range of prices. But whatever you do this Mother’s Day, please remember to tell mom thanks!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial 32mm Stainless Steel With Diamonds

Omega De Ville

Subtle beauty that packs a punch is what I strive for when getting ready in the morning, and this Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial does just that. The traditional round case, Roman numerals, and moody dark blue dial make it easy to wear whether you’re at the office, out for drinks, or playing with your kids. I can say that diamonds aren’t always a girl’s best friend, but even I appreciate the delicateness of the eight diamond hour markers. Paired with a date window and reliable Omega movement it’s the perfect blend of elegance and functionality.

Swatch Rinse Repeat Navy ‘Bio-Reloaded’ GE725

Swatch

I’m a big fan of Swatch for my day-to-day. I have a three-year-old and twins on the way, so I need something that is easy to wear but doesn’t feel risky with the messiness of life. The price of a Swatch, like this Rinse Repeat Navy “Bio-Reloaded,” makes it an easy choice, but I always feel more put-together with a watch on.

“Moonwalk: The Story Of The Apollo 11 Moon Landing”

Moonwalk

Moonwalk: The Story Of The Apollo 11 Moon Landing is high on the list of books I’d purchase for my own mother to read to her grandchildren. As my own grandfather worked on the Apollo 11 space mission, the story of the moon landing – and the Moon Watch – is near and dear to my family’s heart. This book is a fantastic way for parents to share our love of space (and watches) with our children, and perhaps learn a little something ourselves.

Rado Captain Cook Automatic 37mm White Dial on Beads-Of-Rice Bracelet

Rado Captain Cook

As a mother, rock climber, and hiker, when thinking of my ideal watch, it is something sturdy yet fashionable. I love the Rado Captain Cook Automatic for the freshness the white bezel and dial bring. It absolutely screams spring and summer to me, and I can’t be the only one ready for some warmer weather. At 37mm this case size sits just right on my dainty 6-inch wrist. It makes me feel empowered, and what are mothers – all women, for that matter – if not powerful.

Seamaster 300M Midsize

Omega Seamaster

Moms typically don’t splurge on luxury items for themselves. I’m guilty of this. I’ve been searching for “the watch.” There are so many options that it can be overwhelming. But I finally found it! The Seamaster 300M. As a working mom, I want versatility. This watch from HODINKEE Pre-Owned is stylish for work, casual enough for the baseball or football field (my second home on evenings and weekends), and dressy enough for date night. It’s the perfect gift to celebrate my accomplishments and serve as a daily reminder to slow down and be present in each moment.

A Few More Ideas

For context, I am a working mom with three children, ages 4 and under. Am I busy … ? I’ll let you answer that. However, it is nice to take a few minutes to think about what I would like for Mother’s Day, so here goes.

I would really like a Textured Light Brown Calfskin Watch Strap to go with the Timex Waterbury that I purchased for myself last year. I had planned to do this all along, but, alas, the busyness.

Parchie

I would also really love a Parchie School-Time watch. I love that I can match my kids and easily tell the time without having to be connected to my phone. Schedules are VERY important to this mama, but so is being present with my kids.

Beoplay Headphones

Lastly, I think a nice set of noise-canceling headphones would be lovely so that I can attempt to drown out the dreaded background noise that summertime brings while I attempt to work from home, upstairs (here’s to hoping you remembered to enroll the kids in summer camps, unlike me!).
