Can’t decide what to get the mom or mama-figure in your life? You’re not alone. Flowers are so 2020 & brunch may not be an option in your city. Plus, Big Mama will give you the side-eye if you try to get by with another framed photograph of you & your siblings. So what do you get the most important woman in your life? Depending on her style, you can surprise her with PATTERN.
We’ve gathered some of the most iconic Black moms as inspiration for this Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Whether yours is like Clair Huxtable or Elektra Abundance or Rainbow Johnson, we’ve got you covered. Don’t thank us; just order in time to see a smile on her face.
Clair Huxtable (The Cosby Show)
Mother, lawyer, wide, class act. The matriarch of the Huxtable family was equal parts professional & personable. The effortless blowout & knowing smile dazzled households for years. So if your mother exudes the confidence of actress Phylicia Rashad, loving to transition from roller set to braids to easy up-dos, treat her to the Deluxe Styling Bundle.
Deluxe Styling Bundle, $140 (10% off compared to buying individually-a $156 value!)
Rainbow Johnson (black-ish)
Sure, we’re biased, but Dr. Rainbow Johnson is #MomGoals. After all, the eco-conscious curly may or may not share the same values & volume as the PATTERN CEO/Founder (wink). If the mama-bear in your life goes through the conditioner quickly & loves to keep her coils healthy & hydrated, spoil her with Jumbos & Jumbettes of her fave formulas.
Jumbos & Jumbettes, $42 each
Charley Bordelon (Queen Sugar)
An executive, power-broker, daughter, mother, ex-wife & woman in deep transition, Charley is our collective mother, auntie & protector. Whether she’s jet setting to handle a family matter or pulling up a chair in the boardroom, the Charley in your life needs to bring moisture & definition to curls, coils & tight-textures that don't have time for the B.S.
On-The-Go Kit, $24
Monet Tejada (Power Book)
Doing what she must for who she loves. Monet is a mother & current head of the Tejada organization while her husband is inside for 25 years. We all have a mother, auntie or older cousin who keeps the family in line, paying attention to every detail as if playing a game of chess. If you're looking to treat a money-minded matriarch who can get her own but always needs to stay slayin', we've got just the thing.
Slick Back Bundle, $44
Elektra Abundance (POSE)
Elektra Abundance-Wintour is the former shrewd house mother & reigning champion within the ballrooms. She is fierce, ferocious & altogether fabulous from her wardrobe to her wigs & the way she counsels her children. Sound familiar? While she may not say ‘thank you’ or praise your gifting abilities, she’ll be more than pleased with this token of love: the PATTERN Scented Candle, the Intensive Conditioner & the curl-defining Shower Brush.
Mother’s Day Bundle, $56
Amelia 'M'Dear' McKellan (Family Reunion)
Nana, Grandma or M’Dear. Whatever you call Big Mama, gift her with all the self-care essentials in a bundle with a multi-step process that includes treating her scalp with our refreshing Scalp Serum infused with a blend of stimulating oils such as lavender, rosemary & peppermint; drenching her strands in our Treatment Mask inspired by ancestral rice water rinse traditions; then following up with hot oil treatment & an ultra-luscious conditioner.
