They’re perforated to let water pass through and gorgeous enough to happily sport at the spa or for her DIY pedicure time. Here’s how to do a DIY pedicure that looks professional.
A candle she’ll want to melt into

For her to kiss you more often
Moms are known for hugs, kisses, and oodles of affection, so a little something for her pout will be a popular gift. The Wander Beauty Kiss & Tell Set comes with two flattering lipstick shades and an adorable lip shaped pouch she’ll love for storing her favorite makeup essentials. Pass along this guide to how to apply red lipstick like a pro.
Cold shoulder, warm thoughts
She’ll be a stunner in this B Collection by Bobeau Pamela Cold Shoulder Frill Blouse, a flattering silhouette for lots of body types, and because it comes in a variety of colors, it’s also a great choice for every complexion and personal style.
For the summer-loving mom
If the mom you know and love is in a constantly sunny, warm state of mind, she’ll get a kick out of this Big Mouth Toys unicorn pool float. It’s big enough to fit her and a kid or two, so you know the photos will be priceless.
Flowers that last till next year
Give her a small bunch of roses that’ll last all the way until next year. Think it’s impossible? It’s not, and OnlyRoses is making it happen with specially treated bunches of real roses in a variety of colors that can last for around a year—sometimes longer. Think of them as investment blooms to remind her every day of the year that she’s special.
Do you hear that good beat?

The better to see you with, my dear
Let Mom see the directions on her medicine, restaurant menus, and the super cute new haircuts the grandkids got and posted to their Facebook profiles with a pair of chic Peepers reading glasses.
A walk in the park
She’ll want to walk for miles in these Rianna sandals by Naot. They have a padded heel cup and sole-pampering suede that molds to the shape of her foot, and they’re super versatile, swinging from the park to the museum to a day in the city.
For the “always chilly” mom
Does it feel chilly in here? If Mom is always complaining it’s too cold or a little bit drafty, give her this easy-to-wear Jockey Sport Cocoon Wrap.
Even her skin deserves a nap
Speaking of cocoons, Dermalogica’s new Sound Sleep Cocoon was specifically formulated to deliver active ingredients that hydrate, brighten and revitalize at night. The nighttime beauty routine is simple: Just apply, massage, and breathe, and let the motion-activated technology take care of the rest.
For the new mom
This functional and fashionable bag from SCOUT is perfect for every new mom. Before designing the bag, SCOUT consulted hundreds of moms so they would know exactly what baby mamas want in their diaper bag. It has insulated pockets for keeping bottles cold and plenty of space for extra diapers and wipes. Here are the things new moms must memorize.
Bright and cheery accents
Imagine how happy she’ll be when she receives new, colorful Lacoste beach towels? Be a sport and throw in a bottle of sunblock and she’ll be set for the summer.
For the health “nut”
If she’s always reading up on nutrients and trending superfoods, she’ll give you the biggest hug of your life when she receives the MB2e machine. She’ll extract nutrients and flavors from your favorite herbs and botanicals, infusing them into butter, olive oil, peanut oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, and canola oil. In as little as two hours, you can then add these infusions into your favorite foods, sauces, desserts, and drinks.
Coziness is always appreciated
Give her the gift of cozy pajamas she’ll want to wear every single night (and all weekend—we won’t tell). These Karen Neuburger Girlfriend PJs are plush, cozy, and everything she’ll want for a Mother’s Day brunch at home, movie night, or just a much-needed attempt to catch up on sleep. Here are some Mother’s Day brunch ideas for a meaningful, delicious day.
The only acceptable vacuum to give a woman
A traditional vacuum might be perceived as a sexist gesture, but a robotic vacuum like the iRobot Roomba 690 that does all the work without her getting off the sofa? That’s not only acceptable, but advised. It’s basically your own version of Rosie from The Jetsons, because you can even operate it from your phone thanks to it being wifi-enabled. If you really want to impress her, you can be the one in charge of operating it so she never has to even think of vacuuming again.
The softest hair ever
Who has time for a fresh blowout each day? If the mom in your life is low on time, she’ll love a Pai-Shau hair care gift set. Their formulas are ultra-nourishing, leaving naturally curly and wavy hair with less need for added styling time and products, and straight hair becomes wash-and-go. Plus, the scent is a surreal mix of aromatherapy and hair happiness.
For the most elegant Grandma ever
The Carole Hochman diamond quilt short zip robe makes a great lounge-day-at-home piece, or a convenient afternoon out essential with a great black pant and loafers. Check out these Mother’s Day quotes that show mom how much you care.
For the weekend lounger
You don’t have to be a dog lover to love the dachshund-themed joggers from Bean Basics.
Food, glorious food
Sometimes just the act of removing a trip to the grocery store and planning out meals is all it takes to put a smile on her face. After all, time is the most valuable gift of all. HelloFresh delivers delicious ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes to households worldwide, and you can pick a plan that suits her dietary preferences so you know she’ll be happy. Here’s how meal delivery kits will change how you cook!
Whatever type of mom she is, there’s a solid chance she wants to catch up on sleep, and a brand new set of Third dot sheets is the easy way to please her. Not only are they 100 percent cotton and super affordable, but sales of Third bed linens help support the mental health organization 4nd Street charity.
Radiant-looking moms love taking good care of their skin
She’s slathering sunscreen on everyone else all the time, so give her a hand and take care of her skin for a chance with this Murad Dr.’s Picks for Radiant Skin Set. It’s everything she’ll need to look her best, makeup or not. Find out about the surprising history of Mother’s Day.
She’s your A-team
She’s the star player in your family, and manages to stay fashion-forward, which is why we know she’ll obsess over your choice of this on-trend Herschel Supply Varsity Jacket. It’s the perfect mix of Millennial pink and easy spring styling.
The gift of security
Maybe Mom lives alone or frequently receives packages she can’t monitor when she’s not home. If this sounds like her, she’ll benefit from a thoughtful Blink XT security system, one of the most affordable and easy-to-use units on the market.
For the style maven
This leather lariat with freshwater pearl accents from The Jewelry Junkie is a great, on-trend accent piece that’s fun to wear and affordable for almost every budget.
Casserole Cathy will smile for days
We all know someone so into casseroles they can manage to whip any recipe into a casserole-style dish, whether it be chicken or chocolate pudding. If Mom’s not already living for the traditional cooking method, she will be when she meets this Swiss Diamond Cast Iron Oval Casserole. Literally, everything will taste better for having been cooked in it, and Cathy will appear to be the most elegant chef in town when she whips this bad boy out at the potluck. Check out these healthy casserole recipes.
She’ll want to wear this every day
We think this Minnie Rose lightweight linen pullover with a hip knot at the waist will be Mom’s go-to wardrobe favorite. The pop of pastel says spring-summer style—without having to bare arms.
For the perfectionist
If the mom in your world is the type to notice every detail and master everything she touches with perfection, she’ll love simplehuman’s sensor mirror because it uses special light technology that allows her to observe her skin tone in different color variations to make sure her makeup is 100 percent on point. It also offers 5x magnification, which is important when she’s obsessing over just the symmetry of her eyeliner wings.
For the ever-glamorous mother
Sparkly stones are her best friends, so you know she’ll squeal when she opens a jewelry box holding Nina Shoes Salerno earrings. They’re a glamorous costume play on red carpet-style jewelry that she’ll love to wear to weddings, special occasions, and big nights out. These quotes about moms will make you call yours.
Cold brew for her warm heart
If she’s a lover of delicious coffee drinks, but especially cold brew, she’ll love her own Chameleon Cold-Brew Organic Cold Brew Coffee Kit. It includes eight pods and one jar, and will keep her caffeinated in a more digestive-friendly way. Check out these other delicious calorie-free coffee hacks.
Time to herself
Of all the great Mother’s Day gifts on our list, we think she’ll appreciate a little time for herself more than anything. If you can’t call on a trusted friend or relative, a gift certificate to Urban Sitter, a network of on-demand caregivers, will definitely be appreciated.
There’s chocolate for that
Scientifically speaking, we’re pretty sure your mom will get at least a few good chuckles out of receiving a First Aid Chocolate Gift Box from famed chocolatier Max Brenner. If you’re skeptical, yes—there are real health benefits of chocolate, and we couldn’t be more excited.
For the sensitive smiler
If she’s the brightest smile in your world but also the sensitive type, she’ll love the FOREO ISSA 2 sonic electric toothbrush. Aside from it being perfect for sensitive teeth and gums, it’s perfect for moms on the go—one charge will last up to an incredible 365 uses.
Shine bright like a diamond
This Time and Eternity Pendant from Spence Diamonds is a forever-classic way to tell her she’s appreciated for all she does. It features two sterling silver rings around a beautifully created diamond that will help her sparkle even more than she normally does.
A bra she won’t be dying to take off
For many women, bras are the bane of their existence, which is why Mom will swoon over an ultra-comfortable ThirdLove bra. It’s designed with comfort in mind, so she won’t even notice it’s there. These Mother’s Day poems will melt her heart.
Something she’ll use every single day
Of all the gift ideas out there, we love the concept of giving Mom a set of really beautiful, high-quality makeup brushes if she’s the type to wear even a small amount of cosmetics. Why? Because makeup is only as good as its application, and high-quality brushes like these from Beauty Pie can take a somewhat daunting task like applying a full face of makeup and make it seem approachable and easy. This set is priced reasonably to begin with, but if you become a Beauty Pie member they slash the price by over 80 percent—something to think about.
Good hair, don’t care
Tell her she can forget frizzy mornings and dreading shampoo days; she’ll fall in love with this Sutra Petit Hair Brush for its compact design and ability to gently comb unruliness right out of tresses. It delivers heat in a protected way, so even colored and chemically treated hair can use it.
For the days she simply can’t do her own hair
There’s a solution for that. Enter PRÊTE, an app that gives you memberships to blowouts, or even one-offs around the country. If you love her a little, give her a single blowout. If you love her a lot, give her a month of blowouts or more. Here’s how to make that blowout last five days or longer.
You better add a high-quality dry shampoo to that gift bag
If you’re opting for a blowout subscription, she’ll definitely love you forever and a day, but she’ll love you even more if you’re thoughtful enough to throw in some Klorane dry shampoo to keep her style fresh for an extra couple days. You’ll save her time, effort, and money—and those are all just bonuses.
Let her walk on clouds
That’s how she’ll feel in a pair of Koolaburra Rylee mini boots. They’re unlined to keep her feet cool and airy for warmer days, and stylish enough to wear year-round, climate permitting.
She’ll never even notice the pea
Maybe she’s the finicky type or tosses and turns all night. Whatever her reason is, you can look like a major hero for giving her the gift of better sleep for years to come on this 12-inch Queen Pressure Relief Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress from Zinus. The foam is CertiPur U.S.-certified for durability, performance, and content, and its comfort and pressure-relieving support will leave her oblivious to the pea you may have placed below it. She’ll think you spent big bucks on this gift, but it’s less than the price of a nice pair of headphones or a fancy dinner out.
Sip like a princess
Is there anything more glamorous than giving Mom a sip of some pink wine in a pearlized, princess-like glass? This set of four is under $25, making it a fun, whimsical gift for the wine-loving mom in your world. These Mother’s Day songs will make you both cry.
Her touch is already the softest
Her hands should be the softest too. We’re loving this Juara Bali Escape Set, a gift package that includes the brand’s famously decadent hand cream.
Kicks for days with the kids
These Taryn Rose Cara sneakers are the perfect blend of style and utility, and you know she’ll get several seasons of wear out of them at the playground thanks to special comfort technology and adorable detailing.
She’s so connected
Sure, she’s connected to your family, but she also needs to stay connected to her work, friends, and the rest of the world, which is why her phone is an honorary family member. Help her keep her other best friend charged easily by giving her a Belkin BOOST UP Wireless Charging Pad for her iPhone.
An adorable plant
Have you ever seen anything as cute as this little succulent bunny from Olive & Cocoa? It’s a perfect reminder from your little love bunnies that she’s loved, special, and needed. Check out some other Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Accessories for her girls night out
We love trendy, affordable jewelry pieces for constantly cool moms, like this Flaca Jewelry piece that pairs well with everything from a LBD to denim when she heads out with her friends for a much-needed girls night out.
She’s the hottest mom in town
Sizzling, in fact, and if she’s into cooking fajitas at home this Uuni Cast Iron Sizzler will get her excited about dinner at home for years to come.
For the lover of all things Italian
Mom has probably been coveting Borghese beauty products for years, and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show her you’re paying attention by getting her the very golden Borghese Radiante Revitalize and Firm Mask. It’s packed with nutrients fresh out of Tuscan reservoirs and hydration boosters she’ll soak right up. But really, it’s gold, and that’s the most exciting part.
A purse she’ll wear for years
Moms of all ages will love a classic Dooney & Burke Florentine Classic Cameron Crossbody. It’ll go with just about everything and be a treasured wardrobe staple.
She’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom
If the new mom in your life is insisting on only the chicest, coolest gear for her new lifestyle, she’ll love an ultra-cool backpack from Freshly Picked that doubles as a diaper bag. It’s wipeable, spill-resistant, and loaded with pockets for everything from the expected diapers to the less expected essentials like pacifier sanitizing wipes and extra bibs. These new mom myths are totally not true.
She wears so many masks
Or is that hats? Either way, she’ll love this Ahava face mask gift set, because she can try a new one each night for days on end, and then mix and match to create her own special skincare concoctions. That is, if she can’t rub the fresh, healing mud directly into her skin on the breathtaking shores of the Dead Sea—which is on our list of incredible destinations to see before they disappear.
A scent everyone will love
Sure, she’ll love this bold Tocca perfume, but everyone who meets her will love it too. Their newest fragrance, Maya, boasts woody floral notes, sweet violet leaf, and black currant.
The higher the hair, the closer to pre-baby life
For whatever reason, hair volume seems to be one of the first things to go post-baby. For some, it’s hormonal hair loss, but for those who don’t find all the success they’d like with our natural hair loss remedies, there’s a nifty little device called Voloom. It looks like a normal hair straightening iron, but it actually amplifies the roots of her hair starting close to the scalp, giving her back the lusher appearance of pre-baby locks.
Instagrammable mommy & me rain boots
There’s nothing more photo-worthy than heartfelt moments, but you almost have to share those pictures with friends and family on social media when they showcase a mommy and me fashion moment. That’s why the mom in your life will get a kick out of these matchable women’s and kids rain boots from Kamik in the “Jessie” and “Riptide” styles.
She’s the heart of your family
What makes more sense than giving her a heart-shaped reminder of your family’s love and adoration for her? We can’t think of anything cuter than this Pandora Two Hearts Ring.
Mom is the best, bar none
The Agabhumi “Bar None” bracelet from local Bali artisans combines comfy rubber with elegant sterling silver for a look that evokes wordly cool—and sends a loving message to Mom about what she means to you.
Cushy slippers are always a win
Cushy, comfortable slippers are always a win, and these faux fur sandals from TOBI will keep her comfortable year-round. The best part? They’re super affordable, which means even kids with saved up allowance money can afford a pair for Mom.
A beauty set she’s been dying for
There are endless eye shadow palettes and nail polish kits out there, but the Drybar Fully Loaded Buttercup Kit will have her in tears of joy. It comes with a Buttercup blow dryer, two hold me hair clips, a Lil’ Lemon Drop detangler brush, and oodles of Drybar products to play with.
Something really clever
While we love all the great Mother’s Day gift ideas on our list, if Mom already seems to have it all, we think she’ll love a truly genius idea to simplify her life like SnapBaskets from CleverMade. Their crates and totes are sturdy-yet-entirely-collapsible for easy storage when you’re not using them. They’re an organized mom’s new best friend.
Rich, decadent-seeming moisture
Tell her usual body creams and lotions to move over, because you’re getting Mom a brand new 100 percent Pure Sparkling Gingerade Trio. The brand opts for natural ingredients and production methods over the scary-sounding synthetics other brands use, and manages to make gloriously yummy beauty products the health-conscious lady in your life will adore.
For the effortless beauty
She’ll be excited to know she can sleep in a few minutes extra each morning when she realizes she doesn’t have to do anything to her hair other than brush it, thanks to using Color Wow Dream Coat to seal hair health in and lock humidity and moisture out. That means she can head to the park on the most humid summer day without even giving her tresses a second thought or needing to do the messy bun look again.
She’s shiny and adventurous, so her gift should be too
Imagine how chic Mom will look in a shiny metallic backpack from Quilted Koala? It’s as close to giving her an actual medal of honor for her hard work and loads of love as you can get, and she’ll use it every day for toting all the most essential things.
But for the messy buns and ponytails
For this unexpected side effect of motherhood and busy womanhood in general, Mom will swoon over these adorable jewelry-like By Lilla hair ties. It’s a shining example of form meets function.
Give the gift of hygge
What is Hygge? It’s a Danish lifestyle concept of coziness and a feeling of comfort and well-being. Birchbox has created a limited edition all-in-one hygge kit for pampered nights in, with soothing undereye patches, a calming candle, a sleep mask, cushy socks and more. It’s the gift of relaxation—what busy moms need most.
Sound sleep is worth the world
Giving mom a better night of sleep is one of the most practical and valuable gifts out there, especially after she’s already exhausted our list of natural sleep aids. We think she’ll get a perfect slumber on Reverie’s Luxe Rev-Tek Performance Sheet Set because it uses temperature-regulating technology woven right into the fabric, and the materials are moisture-wicking. They’re ideal for pregnant women, those experiencing the hot flashes of menopause, and anyone who tends to sweat in their sleep.
Forget the stress
If she’s constantly stressed out, juggling the endless balls of motherhood, she’ll definitely benefit from the science-backed Shift by Komusō Design necklace. Sure, it looks pretty, but it uses a scientifically-engineered design to improve breathing patterns to slow breath, encourage a state of stillness, and let the wearer let go of stress in the moment. Plus, it’s really pretty and nobody would ever expect that it’s a stress-relief strategy.
Mom is the sweetest
She’ll go wild for a Mother’s Day gift set from McCrea’s Candies, and not just because they’re nearly as beautiful as her, but because they taste like a million bucks, boasting homemade slow-cooked caramel.
Cooking is about to get so much more fun
Maybe you split the meal-making duties in your home, which will make the gift of the Hestan Cue system a gift that wins your heart too. The smart cooking system includes an 11″ Smart Fry Pan, Smart Induction Burner, and full access to the Hestan Cue Recipe app. No matter what cooking skill level you bring to the table, this nifty set ensures that your meal comes out perfect every time, automatically adjusting the temperature as you’re guided through recipes and step-by-step videos.
For the sophisticated mom
We know she’ll love Yankee Candle’s latest Trompe L’oeil candle collection, especially in the popular Sugar & Citrus scent. Aside from looking like extremely expensive boutique items, the citrus notes are known to stimulate the feeling of increased energy, which moms can usually use. Don’t miss the essential oils that boost energy.
For the practical mom
What if you told her that her favorite adorable Aden + Anais baby blanket suddenly came in an oversized version that was big enough for her to cuddle up to the kids on the sofa with, turn into an on-the-fly picnic blanket, or just about anything else? She’d definitely ask for one, which is why we think you need to score these giant muslin blankets in more than one print.
Mom’s new favorite summer top
For casual Friday at work, a trip to the farmer’s market, a day at the beach and everything in between, Mom will reach for this boho-chic, airy blue front-tie top from Dress Up. The feel is effortless but the look is perfectly on trend for spring and summer.
Everything’s coming up roses
If you need an accent for the bouquet of flowers you plan to give Mom, we suggest a bottle of Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion. It goes on like a dream and is made with real rose petals, so you know she’ll love it.
No way, frosé!
Forget last year’s frosé. What mom really wants is a Tipsy Scoop gift pack with alcohol-infused ice creams and sorbets. The brand’s liquor-infused ice creams are hand-crafted and small batch, made with up to 5 percent ABV, and inspired by all the best drinks the world has to offer. Don’t worry, if you’re not in New York they can ship to you.
This is for survival, after all
Motherhood is wonderfully exhausting, so throw the mom in your life a bone with this hysterically-curated survival kit from Thoughtfully. We think the “Yep, I’m listening” eye mask is a necessary item for all moms, everywhere.
Time-obsessed Apple watch-wearing moms will fawn over this
Motherhood is a constant battle to get to about a million places on time, and if she’s already wearing an Apple watch she’ll feel like a queen when you give her a gorgeous jewelry-like band from Bezels & Bytes. It’s a polished and sophisticated upgrade to her dedication to showing up everywhere exactly on time.
All-season boots she’ll wear with everything
Thursday Boot Co. is known for making timeless, wear-them-with-anything boots that just about everyone loves. We happen to think their Downtown style will be a hit with the mom in your life thanks to a comfortable heel height, neutral color, and high-quality materials. She can pair them with a floral print spring dress, distressed denim, or anything in between.
For your most golden girl
If she loves baubles and accessories, she’ll love a pair of Eklexic Double Interlinking Circle Drop Earrings. They’re bold enough for a night out but simple enough for a denim-and-errands type afternoon.
She’s naturally sweet
She’ll love a box of Harry & David’s Royal Verano Pears. They’re the sweetest, most delicious pears we’ve ever had, and we think the health-conscious mom who loves clean eating and in-season produce will appreciate this thoughtful move. Don’t miss the creative Mother’s Day gift that moved one mom to tears.
Upgrade her sneaker game
Any mom with a love of long walks will obsess over a pair of new Vionic Joey sneakers thanks to their comfort technology, cushy interior, and cute runway-ready thick sole. Plus, walking just 15 minutes a day has serious health benefits, so your gift will be doubly appreciated.
An over-the-top bouquet
The Spring Sensation bouquet from 1-800-flowers.com is sure to please moms of all ages and stages thanks to a bounty of pink, blue, yellow, and peach blooms. Check out our guide to what all those beautiful blooms really mean.
Seriously strong cookware
If Mom is still using the cookware she got for her wedding so many years ago, she’ll be thrilled to receive a new set of T-fal Titanium Advanced Non-Stick Cookware. It lasts up to two times longer than their traditional non-stick pots and pans, and offers the longest-lasting coating yet.
The best soothing bath experience
If Mom is the type to sink into a warm tub of lavender bath salts and other home spa goodies, she’s brilliant, because lavender is actually proven to be a stress-relieving scent. That’s why we know she’ll be head over heels for Pevonia’s BodyRenew Bundle.
Get dry in comfort
When Mom steps out of the bath or shower, she’ll appreciate this set of ultra-soft, super-absorbent 100 percent cotton towels from Micro Cotton’s Hotel Collection. Think of it as repayment for all the towels you ruined over the years with your exuberant beauty misadventures.
For the top chef in your life
A chef is only as good as her tools and her ingredients, so give her the absolute best by loading her up with a Calphalon Precision 10-Piece Space-Saving Self-Sharpening Knife Block Set. It’s all the things she loves—precision, efficiency, organization, and utility. You can top this gift off by eating your sliced and diced veggies without complaining.
For the throwback adventurer
If Mom was a kid in the ’90s she’ll gush with happiness over a brand new pair of Rollerblade Macroblade 84 ABTs on her feet. She’ll zip through the park, her fitness routine, and feel like a kid again—that’s sort of like giving several gifts at once. Roller skating is one of the childhood pastimes that burns serious calories.
For the foodie mom
Moms often tell their kids not to eat straight up cookie dough, and while it’s commonly thought that’s for health reasons, it’s more likely due to mom’s secret obsession with the good stuff. Help feed mom’s true passion, eating cookie dough, by giving her DŌ’s best-selling flavors all in one set. She’ll love you forever, even if she hides in a corner to eat it so she won’t have to share.
Health-focused moms will love this
The Krups Air Fryer uses an upper heating element and futuristic-seeming airflow to rapidly cook your most delicious meals with perfect results. It’s a healthier take on frying, grilling, and roasting, and one that Mom will be excited to try.
For the constantly curious mom
Maybe she already knows where her grandparents came from, but what about their grandparents? If she’s constantly curious about the family tree she’ll love a Living DNA 3-in-1 DNA test that offers family line ancestry details, and unlike other tests also includes the mother’s line. How appropriate for Mother’s Day?
For the practical saver
The practically-minded moms will love the Iris Wallet from Ora Delphine. If she’s into couponing and saving store receipts she’ll love this roomy accessory’s numerous card slots and compartments.
Ultimate Mommy time
To pamper Mom, send her off—to a hotel for the night that is, where she definitely won’t step on lego pieces or have to wash dirty dishes. With a hotel stay via HotelTonight, a mobile travel app, she can book a room at a local boutique or independent hotel nearby—they have hundreds in North America and around the world—and finally get the precious quiet time she craves.
