    54 Mother's Day Gifts You Basically Can't Go Wrong With

    From budget to splurge-worthy, these gifts will be a 10/10 with your mom.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Mother's Day, shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 9th!

    1. A piece of custom heart snapshot photo art that'll get an instant "awwww" out of your mom (and maybe tears) when she opens it and remembers all the good times you've had together.

    2. A Kindle Paperwhite that's thin, glare-free, and – did I mention? – WATERPROOF. That means your mom can read in the bath (game changer). Plus, you could preload some books you know she wants to read to really take the gift to the next level.

    3. A wine decanter she'll feel extra fancy using as it aerates her wine to make it taste even better.

    7. An insulated Rifle Paper Co. cup perfect to keep her drink cold for hours and hours so she can still enjoy it during her whole catch-up sesh with friends (because we both know that those go on forever).

    12. An Ember temperature control ceramic mug that'll keep your mom's coffee (or tea) warm for hours so she doesn't take a sip of a cold beverage when she gets distracted. It's the little things in life that make it more luxurious.

    15. A Baggu reusable bag that folds up so small so she can slip it in her bag and have it on hand when she gets to a store that charges for plastic bags. Plus, she'll feel great about helping the environment.

    16. Rothy's Mary Jane flats I'll get straight to the ~point~ about — not only are these made from recycled materials, but they're also stretchy, washable, and oh-so-stylish. Your mom will feel like the queen she is in these beauties.

    17. A cult-favorite Caudalie radiance serum designed with Viniferine to brighten and even out her complexion so she looks even more beautiful than she already is (if that's even possible!).

    the braided closed-toe sandals in dark brown

    22. A Nespresso Vertuo, which will mean a ~latte~ to her if she's a coffee lover, because she'll be able to make a delicious cup of coffee or espresso in her own home every morning.

    23. Or a Bodum pour-over coffee maker made with heat-resistant borosilicate glass and a permanent filter if she's a little more old-school and doesn't need anything super fancy.

    26. A tablet dock and utensil holder perfect for your mom who has been pinning a lot of new recipes she wants to try. The stand makes it easy to follow said recipes, and the holder means she can grab the utensil that she needs in .2 seconds flat. Plus, she won't mind having this take up precious counter space all the time.

    the light pink book cover with the title "One Question A Day For Moms: A five-year journal Daily Reflections on Motherhood" and illustrations of flowers on it

    29. A minimalist watch she'll probably assume you bought from some fancy-schmancy store. You don't have to tell her otherwise! Your secret is safe with me!

    white toothbrush heads with rose gold, black, gold, and silver bottom and white case

    Tthe clear holder suctioned to the side of the tub with a glass of red wine in it and a hand reaching for it

    34. An apron with built-in oven mitts and a conversion cheatsheet in the pocket that will basically work as hard as a sous chef when it comes to helping her in the kitchen.

    35. A cellphone holder everyone can put their phones in when they get into the house so you can enjoy some family time together and not have your mom say, "Get off your phone" every five minutes.

    rectangle wood holder with phones inside and the words "Unplug, be present with those around you" on the front

    36. A Star Wars cheese board you won't have to ~force~ her to use, because it's just so cool that she'll want to show it off to everyone she knows.

    37. A HyperChiller that can chill freshly brewed coffee – or other liquids, such as wine (!!) – in a minute without watering it down.

    Twelves oval-shaped pendents in different-colored stones on cold chains

    40. An Always pan designed to replace eight pieces of cookware, and look good while doing it. This means she can have a decluttered cabinet and yet still make all the different kinds of food she wants.

    41. A minimalist pet portrait (in either a line or colorblock style) that's perfect if it's an open secret that the pet is the favorite sibling of the family. This portrait can be customized for the type of pet and add a personalized touch to her home without clashing with all the other decor she has.

    Three pics of the art: one line drawing of a dog, one color-block of a dog, and a line drawing of a cat, all with the actual animals they look like below them

    42. An AeroGarden so she can grow her own herbs (and even veggies) without having to commit to a big garden. She'll love adding her own home-grown things to dinners *almost* as much as she'll love telling everyone that she grew it herself.

    Reviewer pic of the black Aerogarden on a counter with lettuce leaves growing in it and their hand on one of the leaves, showing how big it's growing

    43. A Skylight Frame digital frame guaranteed to bring a smile to her face as it rotates through all the pictures. Plus, you can give your family the email address to send photos directly to the frame so mom can see updates on how much those cute grandkids are growing every day (granddogs count too!).

    44. A NutriBullet to help her ~whip~ up smoothies (and soups and more!) in a matter of seconds.

    45. A Furbo dog camera for the empty-nester who replaced her kids with a new kid (aka a dog) and can't bear to be away from the pup. This high-tech camera can help ease anxiety (both hers and their dog's) when she leaves them home alone. With livestream video, two-way audio, *and* treat-dispensing, she can make sure the pup is behaving while she's away, or just reward them for being oh-so-cute.

    46. An air fryer designed to help her grill, roast, and bake up some delicious food in minutes. It uses "rapid air technology" to cook food evenly and make crispy fries, tasty veggies, and more without using any hot oil.

    47. A Revlon One-Stop Hair Dryer and Volumizer she'll be ~blown~ away with because it's a gift gift that keeps on giving — great hair 365 days a year.

    48. Or a Slip silk pillowcase here to make sleep feel even more like a ~dream~, especially when she wakes up with her beautiful curls still intact and frizz-free. (Not to mention her skin looking great too!)

    Model hugging a pillow with the silk pillowcase on it in black

    49. A heated massager she can use to relieve the tension she gets from just being out in the world and dealing with everyday stressors (*cough, cough* raising kids).

    the small glass perfume bottle, white lotion with gold cap, tag and box

    51. A splurge-worthy Barefoot Dreams robe that'll basically make her feel like she's wearing a big blanket all the time. She'll feel very luxurious and like royalty.

    model wearing the mid-calf length fuzzy robe in light grey

    52. A personalized recipe cutting board so you can preserve her favorite "secret" family recipe and display it like a work of art. Plus, when it's time to make the recipe, she won't have to try and remember where she stored the card.

    A model holding the cutting board, which is about the size of a piece of paper with the recipe engraved in cursive

    53. A pair of faux fur slippers lined with microfleece fabric (that absorbs any moisture *cough, cough* sweat) to keep her feet at a consistent cozy temperature all day long. Plus, with the multi-layer memory-foam footbed, she'll feel like she's walking on little soft clouds.
