    39 Mother's Day Gifts You Can't Go Wrong With

    From budget to splurge-worthy, these are foolproof gifts your mom will love.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A 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.


    You upload 30 images into the heart template and can also change the size and color to really make it your own.

    Get it from Minted for $29+ (availble in six sizes, three colors, and either unframed or framed (with 17 options)).

    2. A waterproof Kindle she can use to read in the bath (game changer) or at the pool during your next vacation. Plus, you could preload some books you know she wants to read to really take the gift to the next level.

    I've been an avid Kindle user for the past four years, but when I saw the new version, I knew it was time to upgrade. The main selling point is the fact that this one is waterproof. So waterproof, in fact, that it can be in up to 2 meters of fresh water for more than 60 minutes. Plus, it's lighter, has more storage, and the battery last for WEEKS. I took this on vacation with me and was so impressed. I was able to sit on the ledge in the pool and read without worrying about getting the device wet. And I even put it in the water to test, and it still works perfectly. Plus, I used it every day and didn't have to charge it the whole time I was on the trip. That gets a big gold star in my book and is the perfect gift.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    3. A simple yet beautiful necklace you can personalize with up to four names or messages so your mom can carry the ones she loves most close to her heart.


    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my sister who has 4 kids. I had each of their names engraved on the sides. It came out beautiful, and she LOVED it. This is the sixth piece of jewelry I have ordered from this company, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fair priced, unique, beautiful, meaningful gift for anyone. Or for yourself!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.57.

    4. A cookie flower pot she'll appreciate even more than actual flowers because these will last longer (maybe) and also be a nice treat for a few days.

    Cheryl's Cookies

    Growing up, my grandma would get us cookie bouquets instead of actual flowers, and it was actually one of my favorite things because I could enjoy the deliciousness for at least a week. It's a unique twist on a classic gift your mom will appreciate.

    Get it from Cheryl's Cookies for $42.99. Plus, save 15% off sitewide with code CCOBUZZ15.

    5. An electric toothbrush so chic she won't even realize how practical a gift it really is—until she starts using it every single day. / Via Quipp

    Plus, you can sign her up for a plan, and she'll get a delivery of brush heads and batteries (depending on the plan) to her door every three months. Not only is the brush beautiful, it's practical too. It pings every 30 seconds to let you know how long you've been brushing.

    Get one from Quip for $25+ (eight colors; multiple packages available depending on your budget and needs).

    6. An Ember temperature control ceramic mug that'll keep her coffee warm for hours so she doesn't return to a cold cup when she gets distracted.


    You remotely adjust the temperature to get it just right, and you can also select a personalized LED color.

    Promising review: "If you’re a mom, you need this mug! I have a two year old and a 3 week old, and needless to say, I microwave my coffee at least 2-3 times a morning! But not anymore! Probably the best feature is that my coffee stays as hot as I want it for as long as I need it...AND it’s not hot on the outside! It’s a great shape, feels like a real ceramic mug, and is super easy to clean! I like my coffee hot, 140 (they recommend 130), and the battery lasts over an hour with out the charging coaster, but if you keep the coaster close by, you’ve got perfectly hot coffee for forever!" —Kaytie

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in black and white).

    7. A super cute 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.


    Promising review: "I received a BAGGU bag several years ago as a gift, and I use it nearly every day! The things that sets BAGGU apart from other bags: 1) Cute prints! There are a lot to choose from! 2) It folds and fits easily in my purse. You know those bags that you open up and can never fit it back in it's original case? You will NOT experience that with these bags!! 3) Durability. I generally use my bags for canned goods and grocery shopping. The strap is also large enough to wear over the shoulder for ease of carrying. I'd recommend BAGGU to anyone!!" —S T

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in 32 colors and patterns).

    8. A simple but breathtaking birthstone pendant necklace that makes for a gorgeous and thoughtful present.


    You can choose the semi-precious stone based on the mom's birth month or an important month to your family. It features18K gold-plated brass and the chain is adjustable.

    Promising review: "This is super cute, a good quality, and a great price! I’ve bought a few of these birthstone necklaces for my friends’ birthdays, and they’ve all loved them." —Melodyava

    Get it from Nordstrom for $50+ (available in 11 colors).

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


    Promising review: "I was a little nervous to purchase this as a gift for someone because it's glass, and I was worried it would arrive broken. However, it was very well packaged and came in perfect condition. It is a really beautiful decanter and anybody that is a wine drinker would love to have this. I am so glad that I decided to purchase. It is larger than I thought it was going to be as well, which is always a nice surprise." —Kaila Knies

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    10. A set of pastel nested bowls she'll proudly display in the center of her table for months to come.


    Get it from Walmart for $25.97.

    11. An AeroGarden so easy to use that even if your mom doesn't have a green thumb, she'll enjoy growing herbs she can put in her food.


    The AeroGarden has an LED grow lights that automatically turn on and off. It also reminds you when you should feed and water the plants. The system comes with Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil.

    Promising review: "I am really enjoying my AeroGarden. First, its narrow clean design fits into my kitchen well. Of the six seedlings, only the mint didn’t grow, but I have more dill and basil than I can use some weeks. I was apprehensive about the “every two week clean out”, but it is very easy; it only takes 5 minutes. I like it better than my “click & grow”, which is not hydroponic. I just bought another to give to my sister as a gift. It's a great product! And thank you for the great price Macy’s!" —LDianeP

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $99.99 (available in black and white).

    12. A splurge-worthy salt and pepper shaker set that'll basically be a functional work or art she can display (and think of you every time she uses them on her food).

    Promising review: "I got this as a gift for my wife, and she loves them. These are great design and functional at the same time. They now stay on the table as decorations, whereas our old grinders were hidden away and bought out as required. They are very matte and do show fingerprints etc., but easy to fix and the rubberized plastic has a nice feel to it when using. I recommend to anyone who likes this style of grinder." —Bryan

    Get it from Amazon for $74.95 (available in six colors).

    13. A brunch gift set so she doesn't have to fight the brunch crowd, struggle to find a reservation, or cook at home. That's the ultimate treat.

    Harry & David

    The gift includes a triple cheese and caramelized onion quiche, sliced Canadian-style bacon, maple syrup butter, lemon poppyseed cake, four English muffins, and Marionberry seedless preserves. Yum!

    Promising review: "I sent this to my sister for Mother's Day. She has two very young children, so I didn't want her to have to cook on Mother's Day. They loved it, and the kids really liked the quiche (4 year old and 2 year old). I definitely recommend!!!" —Brittany

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


    Promising review: "I got this for myself awhile ago. When I used it to chill white wine for my cold-wine loving mom, she fell in love, so I came back to get one for her. I am always suspicious with these types of gimmicky-seeming things, but this is the real deal. It's so awesome. We both use ours on the regular. It chills wine to ice-ice cold with ease and speed, and for a very reasonable cost." —Claire Lyn

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    15. A pair of floral sneakers for the athletic mom who wants to ~step up~ her shoe game. She'll get compliments on these everywhere she goes.


    True story, my mom bought me similar floral sneakers as a gift a few years ago, and I get compliments on them every time I wear them to this day. She went back a few days later to try and get herself a pair, and they were sold out. So, if you're on the fence, just get them so you both don't have any regret later.

    Get them from Nike for $140 (available in sizes 5-12 and in black and orange).

    16. A Skylight frame that connects to wifi so you can email photos to the frame and have them show up. Just imagine how you mom will feel when she walks by and sees a new photo you took evem before it goes up on Instagram or Facebook.

    Get it from Skylight for $159.

    17. A pajama set so comfortable she might just wear them all night *and* all day, even if she leaves the house.


    Promising review: "These PJ’s are amazing!!! The material is soft, and they’re actually very elegant. Look and feel expensive. I have been looking for a nice pajama set, and these far exceed my expectations. I didn’t want to take them off and wanted to wear them out of the house lol. So I ended up buying the short set too!! TREAT YOURSELF!! You won’t regret it!! I’m getting more for myself and for gifts and vacations. “One for you, and 1,2 for me” hehe 🙃!!!" —Chill

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 39 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I lose my phone, keys, and more a few times a day because I'm so busy raising boys. I lost my phone outside in the dirt somehow, and I went outside pushing the beeper and found it within seconds. I wouldn't have been able to do that without this beeper. Thank you!" —H20goods

What are you grateful for? What are you going to focus on?). I love this little book.
