Give her the comfortable classics you know she’s already living in every day, like this timeless blazer from White House Black Market. She’ll wear it to work, with denim on the weekends, and even over crisp dresses on nights out.
Because you’re a very cuddly family
Maybe you’re all grown up now, but your best memories are of crawling into bed with Mom for storytime and cuddles. She’ll love a thoughtful card and a new set of ultra-soft Cariloha Bamboo Sheets.
It’s in the bag
Two-toned leather, a structured shape, and summer’s “it” color—apricot—make this Dooney & Bourke Pebble Leather Satchel is the accessory of the season and a treasured wardrobe staple, with plenty of room for Mom to stash all her important stuff.
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.

These Aerosoles Women’s Martha Stewart Woodside Wedge Sandals are neutral enough to match every outfit—from the new cropped chino to a maxi dress—but it’s sure to stand out for its bold style. Say hello to mom’s new go-to summer shoe.
Time is on her side
Give mom’s wristwatch a chic upgrade with the Marine Star style from Bulova. It practically glows with a mother-of-pearl inner dial and white ceramic bracelet with gold-tone accent. “I’m in love,” one Amazon reviewer writes. “The more I look at it the more I love it.”
Do you hear that good beat?
Let her hear all her favorite tunes in peace with a super cool set of JBL Reflect Mini BT headphones. It’s compatible with her phone, easy to store in her purse, desk, or anywhere else, and super sleek.
For the practical mom
If she’s known to live her whole day in gym pants because there’s simply no time for complete wardrobe changes. We understand and we know she’ll love a pair of Old Navy joggers. It’s gym-ready, has convenient pockets for whatever she needs, and it can be thrown in with whatever else is in the laundry. A mother’s dream, really.
Forget boring old photo frames as Mother’s Day gifts, because Aura Frames are digitally connected and marry her love of family memories and funny photos from vacations of the past with a brilliant LCD screen that syncs large digital image collections with an app that keeps mom’s visuals fresh and love-filled. Find out about Mother’s Day traditions from around the world.
If mom’s perennial quest is for a pop of color that also hydrates, she’ll love JOAH’s La Bam Balm Tinted Lip Balm. It gives her the best of both worlds—moisture and long-lasting washes of on-trend spring color. You’ll love the under five dollars price tag.
A walk in the park
Or maybe a run? She’ll want to go for miles in these Hoka One One kicks. It features generous and comfortable sole padding, on-trend design, and a fit that makes exercise feel like a breeze. It’s super versatile, wear these shoes anywhere, from the park to the museum to a day in the city.

For the new mom
This functional and fashionable nursing tank from Belly Bandit is perfect for every new mom. Dozens of positive Amazon reviews prove she’ll love the gentle belly compression that will help her recover, and easy-to-access nursing panels to help the baby nurse with ease. Learning the tricks to nursing in public is one of the things new moms must memorize.
There’s moisturizer—and then there’s Milk + Honey Bath and Body Oil. Sure, it’s made with organic, plant-based, premium ingredients, but it’s the lavender, neroli, and chamomile essential oils that make this after-bath oil feel so luxurious. It smells amazing and leaves skin velvety soft.
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.
She’ll want to drizzle this on everything
A bottle of Gaea Fresh Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Single Origin EVOO will make all her favorite recipes tastier than ever, enhancing her favorite healthy salads, and giving you all excellent dinnertime debate fuel over the best way to grow tomatoes.

For the weekend lounger
You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to love these BP Jogger Pants. They’re perfect for long walks, late mornings at home, or just about anything else mom finds herself doing.
Wine, glorious wine
Sometimes a glass of wine and a great book is all it takes to make the perfect evening. Mom deserves that, doesn’t she? A bottle of dark ruby Jezreel Adumim red—a rich, spicy blend of the Carignan grape, Syrah, and Argaman—from Barkan Wines, one of the Mediterranean’s most popular vineyards, should do the trick. Mom will love the velvety tannins and flavors of cassis, black plum, espresso, chocolate, and a hint of green pepper.
Whatever type of mom she is, there’s a solid chance she wants to catch up on sleep, and a brand new set of Brooklyn Bedding Shredded Foam Pillows is the easy way to please her. Cooling technology prevents overheating for even sounder zzz’s.
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 Bright Right Here Kit. 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 Parkland Bobbi Fanny Pack. It’s the perfect mix of millennial styling, easy comfort, and practical enough to wear on a long run or cheering from the soccer sidelines.
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 XT2 smart home security system, one of the most affordable and easy-to-use units on the market.
Throw in a few extra snuggles
Tell mom to head back to bed with this weighted blanket from Baloo. It’s luxurious, snuggle-worthy, and pairs well with her love of organic baby clothes for your little ones.
The Modern Ceramic Flower Vase by Zuo is simply stunning with or without flowers. The soft pink textured vase adds a pop of color but is still neutral enough to match any room.
She’ll want to wear this every day
We think this Kimono Robe from Plum Pretty Sugar with a belt at the waist will be mom’s go-to for lounging at home. The vintage floral print says spring-summer style—without having to expose her arms.
The thing about the greatest hits is that well, it’s the greatest! When you gift mom the Pinrose Greatest Hits Kit, she’ll get three bestselling travel-size rollerball fragrances: Secret Genius (vanilla, caramel, and sandalwood); Merry Maker (nectarine, plum, and tonka bean), and Wild Child (gardenia, jasmine, and frangipani). Bonus: It’s made in America, cruelty-free, vegan, and free of phthalates and parabens.
For the glamorous mother
Gold is one of her best friends, so you know she’ll squeal when she opens a jewelry box holding Gorjana Madison Huggies earrings. These gold-plated brass hoops are a glamorous take on the hip street style that she’ll love to wear to every single day. 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.
Answers to so many questions
Of all the great Mother’s Day gifts on our list, we think she’ll appreciate the gift of information. An AncestryDNA Kit will help her delve deeper into her roots, uncovering family lore and age-old mysteries. All she needs is a few minutes to set up her account, a little bit of saliva in one of the kit’s included vials, and patience while she waits for results.
There’s chocolate for that
Scientifically speaking, we’re pretty sure your mom will get at least a few good chuckles out of receiving Hilliard’s number one mom chocolate box. If you’re skeptical, yes—there are real health benefits of chocolate, and we couldn’t be more excited.
For the brightest futures together
If she’s the brightest light in your world, she’ll love a pair of Shady Rays Signature Series Polarized Sunglasses. She’ll wear these function-first stylish sunglasses every day and wonder how she ever lived without it.
Athleisure she’ll love living in
For many women, gym clothes are the bane of their existence, which is why mom will swoon over an ultra-comfortable pair of Lululemon Align Pants. It’s designed with comfort in mind and looks amazing in all the right ways. The higher-cut tummy panels are super flattering too. These Mother’s Day poems will melt her heart.
Something she’ll use daily
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 your makeup is only as good as its application, and high-quality brushes like these from Ecotools can take a somewhat daunting task like applying a full face of makeup and make it seem approachable and easy. You’ll have enough money left over to take her to brunch, too.
One of the secrets to the timeless, effortless elegance we admire in French women is their love of classics, like the crisp Breton from Boden. This versatile long-sleeve tee is incredibly soft and comfortable and is just begging to be paired with this season’s wide-legged cropped pants. Bon chance!
Let her walk on clouds
That’s how she’ll feel in a pair of Koolaburra Rylee mini boots. It’s 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 satisfying than giving Mom a sip of health from an eco-minded, trendy water bottle? You’ll be doing mom a favor by helping her hydrate in style. 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 L’Occitane Hand Cream Bouquet, a gift package that includes the brand’s famously decadent organic hand creams perfectly sized for handbags, desk drawers, and glove compartments.
Appeal to her animal instinct
Leopard print has officially taken over for spring and summer, so keep Mom on-trend and in total comfort with the polyester-rayon blend from Target’s Zoe + Liv brand. Note that this is a brand for juniors, so you may need to size up.
Forget the long wait for Mother’s Day brunch and all the unnecessary carbs. The gift of Good Dee’s Pancake Mix is gluten-free, grain-free, and made with almond flour. It’s a perfect reminder from your little love bunnies that she’s loved, special, and unforgettably sweet. Check out some other Mother’s Day gift ideas.
For the yoga enthusiast
If she’s into de-stressing and the many benefits of yoga, she’ll quickly fall in love with a new zen-inspiring mat from Supported Soul.
She’s the hottest mom in town
Sizzling, in fact, and if she’s into cooking fajitas at home this Ebros Cast Iron Sizzler will get her excited about dinner at home for years to come.
Her face is golden, literally
Mom has probably been coveting Golden Door 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 Bamboo Face Scrub. It’s packed with skin-healthy bamboo stem powders for soft, supple skin.
She’s shear-ly wonderful
It’s true, which is why we think she’ll love a pair of high-quality Chef’n kitchen shears to simplify meal prep and even get the older kids involved. Check out the secret uses for ordinary kitchen gadgets.
Best dress ever
Amour Vert has crafted the most figure-flattering, easy-to-wear but absolutely stunning midi dress, with flutter sleeves, a deep v neckline, and double-tie sash at the waist. This baby goes from day to night, from office to party—and don’t be surprised if Mom wants to sleep in it too. That’s the kind of comfort we’re talking about.
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.
She wears so many masks
She’ll love this Ahava face mask gift 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.
The Montelle Essentials Lace Bralette gets five stars on Amazon for being a “perfect fit” without any fussy underwires. It’s fully lined with stretch mesh, and the elastic straps are adjustable and convertible at the back for super-versatile support.
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 tresses.
Instagrammable 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.
Cushy slippers are always a win
Cushy, comfortable slippers are always a win, and this pair of faux fur Jacques Moret Women’s Sequin Fuzzy Babba Slipper Socks will keep her comfortable year-round. The best part? It’s 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.
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 EcoBasket Reusable Grocery Tote Bags from CleverMade. Its nylon shopping baskets are sturdy-yet-entirely-collapsible for easy storage when you’re not using it. This three-pack is 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 Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. 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.
But for the messy buns and ponytails
For this unexpected side effect of motherhood and busy womanhood in general, Mom will swoon over these Slip Silk Scrunchies. It’s a shining example of form meets function.
This retro zip-up hoodie from Aviator Nation will remind mom of her days as a carefree teenager. It’s super soft and warm with a split kangaroo pocket and a vintage feel mom will flip for.
Give mom’s favorite sofa a bold geographic accent with the Stone & Beam French Laundry Stripe Pillow, with free shipping on Amazon (with a Prime membership). The timeless style has just the right mix of refined and casual touches, and the black and ivory color scheme will literally go with everything.
Forget the stress
If she’s constantly stressed out, juggling the endless balls of motherhood, she’ll definitely benefit from the science-backed CannaSmack Lavender & Sage Healing Balm. Sure, it smells pretty, but it uses the power of real hemp oil to offer relief. Plus, it’s travel-friendly and non-psychoactive and nobody would ever expect that it’s a stress-relief strategy.
Every day is a denim day
There’s no bad time for mom to wear this cute, cropped denim jacket from California-based Kut From the Kloth. The wardrobe essential goes seamlessly over shorts and a tee, a maxi dress, and everything in between, and has “just the right amount of stretch” to make it super-comfortable.
Make cooking 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 inch 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.
Yes, this is handsoap, but it is French—ooh la la—and so wonderful and luxurious that anyone would be thrilled to receive it as a gift. The Verbena Collection from Compagnie de Provence evokes the memory (or the fantasy) of a leisurely walk in sun-drenched Provence; it smells amazing and it actually softens hands. Mom will use every last drop and then pine for more.
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 nightie
This sweet nightie from Soma’s Cool Nights collection will keep her cool thanks to its innovative fabric. Plus it has a built-in bra so mom can feel even more comfortable when she wears it. 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.
If she’s known to wear her black leggings with just about everything from tees to dresses, she’ll go wild for a new pair of Marika Women’s Carrie Butt Booster Capri Leggings. They enhance all her best assets, help give a toned appearance, and go with just about everything.
These punchy pastels from Deborah Lippmann are perfect for summer, with a gel-like formula that delivers high gloss and a cushiony plumped look similar to gel but minus the damage to nails. The Shades of Cool set has six mini nail colors that are also free of formaldehyde and other nasties.
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 Lagos. It’s a polished and sophisticated upgrade to her dedication to showing up everywhere exactly on time—and knowing how many calories she burned in the process.
All-season boots she’ll wear with everything
Lamo is known for making timeless, wear-them-with-anything shoes, slippers, and boots that just about everyone loves. We happen to think their moccasin-style will be a hit with the mom in your life thanks to a comfortable sole height, neutral color, and high-quality materials. She can pair them with a floral print spring dress, distressed denim, or anything in between.
She’s naturally sweet
She’ll love a box of Harry & David’s Royal Verano Pears. It’s 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.
Style, meet comfort
Any mom with a love of long walks will obsess over a pair of new Leila Keomi Backstrap sandals from Vionic. The wide leather straps make them chic, but the hidden orthotic, comfort technology, cushy interior, and rubber sole make them a walker’s new best friend.
The mom-safe moisturizer she’ll swear by
The basq Mega Moisture Free Cream Fragrance-Free tub is every sensitive mom’s dream skin hydration choice. It’s safe enough to use before, during, and after pregnancy and free of irritating fragrances that can pose a threat to babies and children, too. We think it’s the best alternative to scent-heavy flowers for those with sensitivities.
For the mom on the go
The eBags Fortis Pro Traveler Hardside Spinner Carry-On is easy to roll, super-durable, and has zippered dividers and tie-down straps inside to make packing a cinch. This perfect weekender—five-star reviews across the board—is TSA-approved, and mom will fall hard for raised rib finish in rich ocean blue.
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.
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 15-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.
A new flame
Nothing says, “Thank you, mom” like, well, a candle that says “Thank you, mom” right on the glass jar. The long-burning soy candle from Homesick Candles evokes freshly trimmed flowers on the kitchen table, lingering wafts of mom’s favorite perfume, and the smell of breakfast sizzling on Sunday morning. A house-made home because of mom.
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 a box of Bubbie’s Strawberry Sugar Cookie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bites. 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
