Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide

We believe that each item from Parker Clay makes a wonderful Mother’s Day present, but this year we want to help you shower the mom in your life with the best Mother’s Day gifts. We have a few good Mother’s Day gift ideas that we thought you might appreciate.

There is no other role in life that is more self-sacrificing or self-giving than motherhood. As a company, we strive to link arms with mothers and lift them up, and we want you to join us in that.

This year for Mother’s Day, we want to encourage you to give a gift back to the mothers in your life, whether it’s your mother, your grandmother, your sister, your godmother, your favorite aunt, or your best friend. Give to the women who gave you life or the women whose presence is a life giving force in our life. This Mother’s Day, seek out the women who care for you and give these women a gift that acknowledges their value and their role in your life. What’s more, when you give a gift from Parker Clay, you are investing in the lives of women across the globe, and that is one of the best gifts.

Our Top 10 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mari Backpack

For the mom of babies and young children, you can’t go wrong with the Mari Backpack. This backpack is an organizational dream come true for a mom who needs to pack everything for a trip to the park (but it also has a built-in laptop sleeve because you’re more than snacks and water bottles). Designed for durability, space, and style, this beautiful backpack is ethically made from Ethiopian vegetable tanned leather. This backpack can transition through all seasons of life. We truly mean it when we say this is the last backpack you ever need to buy.

Makeda Crossbody 

For the mom with toddlers, older kids, or grown children. Her days of carrying allthethings have passed, but she still needs an amazing bag. The Makeda Crossbody has an on-trend foldover slouchy look and features accessories made from up-cycled artillery recycled from conflict zones in Ethiopia. From date night on Friday to brunch on Saturday, this sustainable leather everyday bag is as versatile as it is beautiful.

Merkato Signature Tote

Give our favorite bag to the woman who means the most to you. For all moms, no matter their age or their life season, the Merkato Signature Tote is a perfect gift. This luxury leather tote is, truly, everyone’s favorite bag. Pro tip: this bag looks beautiful with a bouquet of fresh flowers peeking out the top.

Entoto Zip Tote

For the jet-setting mama or woman on the go, the Entoto Zip Tote is one of our most popular leather bags, and for good reason. This full-grain leather bag zips across the top and at the outside pocket. It fits a 15” inch laptop, so it is ideal for work or travel. Take advantage of the interior and exterior pockets, and leave a couple thoughtful notes or cards reminding her why you’re grateful for her.

Taytu Weekender

Perfect for a mother-daughter trip, a girlfriends getaway, or a way to encourage her love of travel, you can’t go wrong with the Taytu Weekender. Pairs perfectly with the Addis Passport Wallet, and she will be ready for all her future adventures.

Miramar Leather Backpack

The Miramar Leather Backpack is a sleek, everyday backpack that’s perfect for a morning hike or an afternoon cocktail on the beach. For the gal who’s snuggling up her new fur-baby, pair this backpack with the Aspen Canine Collar and suggest an outdoor adventure day-trip!

Caroline Tote

There’s no bag that says best Mother’s Day present quite like the Caroline Tote. Designed in collaboration with Mary-Louise Parker, American actress, and activist, the Caroline Tote was inspired by and named for Parker's mother, Caroline Louise Parker.

Eden Carryall

Designer and mom Emily Henderson is obsessed with this bag, the Eden Carryall, and we know the mom in your life will be too. Emily says “The leather is beautiful but I'm mostly excited about...the perfect proportions of handles.” It’s the little things that count both in this bag and in life (and especially on Mother’s Day).


When you give a Mother’s Day present from Parker Clay, you’re not just gifting a handbag, a purse, or a backpack. You’re investing in a premium, handcrafted product that also invests in the lives of those who made it. There’s an African proverb that has turned into a motto for us: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We know that so many mothers are living examples of that proverb as they care for those around them in hopes of creating a better world. Thank you for being part of a larger story this Mother’s Day and giving thoughtful and unique mothers day gifts that spread love and change the future.
