The Best Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother's Day is almost here! Time to figure out what to get the special mom in your life or to come up with a list of what you would like to unwrap on your own special day. Check out the list below for some inspiration to get you started on finding the perfect gift. 

We love to share favorite products with our audience. We want you to know that we may benefit from purchases made using any affiliate links below. 

Stylish Water Bottle: For moms on the go it can be hard to remember to take care of themselves. Along the the wipes and hand sanitizer, a water bottle should always be packed. The S'well Traveler Bottle is a great choice because it comes in so many cute styles and colors, it holds enough to be able to refill a sippy cup, and the mouth is big enough to fit ice cubes which is perfect for summer. Plus, water tastes so much better out of stainless steel than plastic.

Juicer That Does it All: Mom may not have time to sit down to a healthy meal but she can drink one. This Hurom Juicer makes it so easy to drink veggies and its simple to clean. Plus, this juicer can also make ice cream and soups. This is a gift for mom that the entire family can really enjoy — kids can help by putting whole fruits and veggies in, watching juice come out, and enjoying the fresh juice.

New Bedding: If mama isn't sleeping no one is happy. A new pillow might not be something that is on the radar, but it can transform her days by making her nights better. This luxury cooling pillow by Brooklyn Bedding might be just what the doctor ordered for letting her literally rest easy.  

Sweets:  Moms earn their treats just about every day. Give her something she won't want to share with the kids. Loacker Cookies are a great choice that are gourmet enough to make a great Mother's Day gift but easy enough to eat hiding in the pantry if necessary.

Stand Mixer: This Cuisinart stand mixer is a fraction of the price of other popular mixers yet gets better reviews. Some point to bigger bowl, power, and traditional Cuisinart reliability. There is a reason so many moms love their stand mixers – it really does make baking easier. If you have the space it looks nice on the counter too.  

Games for Grown-Ups: Games aren't just for kids. If mom is great at Candy Land, make sure she gets some grown-up games to play after bedtime.  Games like Ridiculous Expositions and Badmoji are popular choices. Make mom happy by keeping some games on hand to play with her significant other or her gal pals.  

Kitchen Tools: Whether mom spends a lot of time in the kitchen or it's more of a place she passes through, the Chef'n Tool Set & Crock makes a nice gift she will be happy to open. This beautiful set looks great on the counter and will be a nice reminder of a happy Mother's Day every time she walks by.

Vacuum: Normally a vacuum wouldn't be on a list of great Mother's Day gifts without a lot of eye rolls, but the Dyson v11 is a leap in technology that just works. It will make mom's life easier when she is doing the cleaning up and — because it's so easy to use — it's more likely to get the kids to pitch in to help. With no cords, no bags, and no fuss this powerhouse can go from wood floors to carpet with no special adjustments and comes with lots of attachments to use in the car, on blinds, and beyond.    


Jewelry:  Jewelry is a standby for Mother's Day for a reason.  It's something Mom can enjoy everyday and a quality piece can last forever.  This adorable necklace from Isabelle Grace in on-trend while staying timeless. The only downside is her daughter may want a matching one!

Get Ready for Summer:  Mother's Day comes just as it's starting to warm up and mom's mind is turning to summer. She's probably been busy getting kids ready for sun but may not have had the time yet to think about herself. Surprise her with a cute pair of sunglasses that good on every type of face, like these from GLCO. Or, think beach (and pool) and get her a swimsuit that is universally flattering like this ruched tankini that has reversible bottoms and lots of coordinating accessories. There are even matching options for kids!
