    1. A loose tunic tank with lots of movement from the ruffled neckline to the cap sleeves and pleated body. Since it can be worn on its own or paired with a coat or cardigan, mom can rock this all year round.

    a reviewer wearing the white and black top in three different ways

    Promising review: "I found a blogger wearing this top on Instagram and fell in love. It’s such a pretty color. I have wide hips and an average waist and often have a hard time finding clothes I truly feel comfortable and confident in. I always get compliments when I wear this top. I ordered a medium and it’s definitely more of a loose fit, but not oversized." —Lisa W.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 21 colors/prints).

    2. A pair of buckled block heels that will have others saying "wow!" and mom's fantastically supported arches saying "oh, YES."


    The gorge sandals have a thick rubber sole and wide straps that reviewers say are surprisingly comfortable!

    Promising review: "These are very pretty and comfortable shoes, I wore them right away to a party and they never pinched or slipped. They show (what I consider) just enough toe and the toe box is comfortable. My feet don't slip or slide. The buckle is darling. The black straps are velvety. They are true to size, and neither wide or narrow." —Woody

    Get them from Amazon for $20.31+ (available in sizes 5–10 and in four colors).

    3. A drapey Madewell blouse that French tucks like no other. Plus, the oversized fit means she can slip it on over her head without having to button it and then re-button it when she realizes she was off by one.


    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite styles from Madewell. I have this shirt in every color I could get my hands on and wear them daily. I even have a couple in black. The shirt is so comfortable, but is nice enough to wear to business meetings. I love that it isn't fitted. My only complaint — and it's a small one — is that I wish the shirt were a tad bit longer in the front." —Britt

    Get it from Madewell for $39.99+ (available in sizes XXS–3XL and in three colors).

    4. A pair of high-waisted pleated pants with bow detailing at the waist and ankles, plus functional pockets. Good news is if mom really falls in love with them, they're available in 33 (!) colors so you'll be set for a few year's-worth of birthday and holiday gifts.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE these pants. They’re so comfortable and STRETCHY! They look very professional and are perfect for my business casual work attire. The pants are a perfect length (also stretchy at the ankles) and sit right above my hips. I can’t wait to get every color! ❤️" —Destiny Czaplewski

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 36 colors).

    5. A pair of head-turning Steve Madden sneakers for the maximalist mom who'd never even *dream* of stepping outdoors in plain white footwear.

    a model holding the sneaker in two different prints

    Promising review: "I LOVE this shoe. I receive so many compliments on them, too! They’re super comfortable. I have planter fasciitis in both feet (I wear Vionics too), and I could stand/walk all day in these sneakers. I absolutely love them." —TM

    Get them from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sizes 5–9.5 and in 11 colors/patterns).

    6. A pair of relaxed, wide-leg pants with a timeless floral print and ~more importantly~ soft, stretchy, spandex construction.


    KIN is a Black, woman-owned fashion boutique from Kristine Thompson.

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical because stretchy comfy pants usually means that you can see every single imperfection, but these pants are the real deal. They’re buttery-soft, to the point where it feels like you’re wearing a cloud, and you don’t see underwear lines. Love these pants and would buy in other patterns." —Alex Ellis

    Get them from KIN for $62.95 (available in sizes 12/14–24/26 get the matching top here).

    7. A pair of polarized frames that'll protect her peepers as she drives you to Starbucks 'cause you *needed* coffee but didn't feel like driving. Yes, she loves you that much.,

    Promising review: "I have been LIVING in these sunglasses since they arrived at my doorstep!! These are seriously so amazing for this price point. Compared with a pair of mine and a friends’ Ray-bans all side by side, the quality of sun protection was the same! These sunglasses are nice and sturdy but they are also super lightweight making them extremely comfortable to wear all day long. (Or in my case, all summer long!) Pink is my favorite color and the rose-colored glasses were just too good to pass up! If the trendy colors aren’t your style, the brown- or gray-toned sunglasses would be just as perfect! I think I’m going to be ordering a few more colors in this style as well as a few other styles! Highly, highly recommend. Great for a trendy pair of glasses but could and should also be a summer staple in your wardrobe!" —Justice Wilhelm

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in nine colors).

    8. A Hill House Nap Dress for the mom who not only knows her trends, but partakes (read: slays) in them, too.

    Hill House

    Promising review: "Love this dress so much! The perfect comfortable dress. Love the smocked top. The color is such a beautiful blue. Perfect for spring and summer." —Priscilla

    Get it from Hill House for $125+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and in seven colors/patterns).

    9. A faux leather bag that can be carried in three different ways: as a backpack, cross-body, or top handle bag. If your mom — like mine — tends to carry everything but the kitchen sink, this'll give her plenty of space.,

    Promising review: "My back has been causing me problems so I decided to switch from a large (but also really cute) tote bag to this backpack. It holds almost as much as my tote and is actually easier to organize. I love the pockets inside and out and the ability to switch to a cross-body so easily. It's super comfortable to wear! I'm so happy with it so far!" —Ashley M.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in five colors).

    10. Or, if she's the opposite, a teensy tiny on-trend waist bag with just enough room for all of her essentials: smartphone, card wallet, and that v, v embarrassing fifth-grade school photo she carries around of you.,

    Promising review: "Bought this for my mom who had shoulder surgery and can’t wear cross body bags. Excellent quality bag for the price!! And comfortable!" —Nathalie Exposito

    Get it from Amazon for $17.89 (available in 18 colors).

    11. A bold and protective headwrap so mom can give her curls the attention they deserve but sans heat or too much manipulation.

    Cee Cee's Closet

    Cee Cee's Closet is Black, women-owned brand from NYC-based sisters Uchenna and Chioma. The duo works with tailors in Nigeria to offer their customers authentic African fashions.

    Promising review: "Super comfortable to wrap, soft to my head but still stiff enough to mold...definitely a new fave." —Melanie S.

    Get it from Cee Cee's Closet for $25.

    12. A silky satin midi skirt with a silhouette that says "chic" and an elastic waistband that says "I'll give your most comfortable sweats a go."


    Promising review: "Wow I honestly had low expectations, but love this skirt! It became a staple in my closet and I’m not one to wear colors or many prints. So silky and smooth, so comfy. Got so many compliments. The band doesn’t dig in and doesn’t look awkward. I can’t wait to get it in different colors." —Daria Z.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.21+ (available in sizes XXS—3X and in 13 colors and patterns).

    13. A pack of bee-emblazoned headbands for the mom who loves Gucci but would absolutely kill you if you spent the $$$ to buy the real thing.,

    Promising review: "These headbands are made very well. They're very comfortable and look extremely high end!" —Amy Melendez

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $12.19.

    14. A ruffled eyelet babydoll top with details that do all the talking but also a loose, flowy fit that doesn't constrict.

    Confetti Boutique

    Confetti Boutique is a small woman-owned business in Owensboro, Kentucky.

    Get it from Confetti Boutique for $45 (available in sizes S–L).

    15. A ribbed henley top she can pair with "mom" jeans — AKA any denim she has on hand. 😉


    Promising review: "I love this top so much. Fits great. Soft and comfy. Sharp looking, too. It is a little low cut, but I like it. A great staple. I vary between a small and medium at Loft, and the medium is perfect." —CJ001

    Get it from Loft for $44.50 (available in sizes XXS–XXL petite and standard and in three colors).

    16. A wide-brim hat capable of blocking harmful UV rays and helping mom on her journey to an Alexis Rose-approved closet.,

    Promising review: "This is the perfect sun hat! It’s really comfortable and looks so cute. I love that the brim is stiff enough that it doesn’t flop down in my face, but flexible enough that you can fold it for travel. The removable, adjustable chin strap was a lifesaver recently when I was out on a windy day. It kept the hat securely on my head. I also love the bow — it really adds a little interest to the hat. The hat looks a lot more expensive than it is. I might even buy it in another color There is a velcro strap on the inside that allows you to make micro-adjustments in size which is really convenient. Highly recommend!" —AKS

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in two sizes and nine colors).

    17. A linen maxi skirt mom can twist and twirl in freely because — say it with me: IT'S NO JEANS 2021.

    Loud Bodies is a woman-founded, sustainable, ethical, and size-inclusive clothing brand from Patricia Luiza Blaj. Her three-person team designs and sews every piece so if you're looking for a size that isn't listed (or you're super tall or very petite), they can custom make it for you.

    Get it from Loud Bodies for $130+ (available in sizes XXS–7XL as well as custom sizes for now extra charge and with or without pockets).

    18. A pair of knit Amazon Essentials jeggings with thousands of 5-star reviews that almost unanimously state they feel like leggings but look like jeans.,

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these pants. I have them in the black and the dark blue wash. They go with everything and are so comfortable that I want to wear them everyday! I usually wear premium denim but I am reaching for these now. The price is definitely right at $20. They look good with boots, flip-flops, or tennis shoes. If you’re on the fence, get these." —DM Lover

    Get them from Amazon for $20.90+ (available in sizes XS–XXL in short, regular, and long and 15 colors).

    19. A denim Universal Standard shirt dress that calls for very little effort on mom's part. Basically: to roll up the sleeves or to not roll up the sleeves? That is the [only] question.

    Universal Standard

    Universal Standard is a women-founded brand that creates inclusive designs in sizes 00 through 40. During the design process, each piece is fit on a model of every size so you'll get a more reliable, comfortable cut than garments created via a static formula.

    Promising review: "This is my go-to Monday dress. With heels and a scarf it looks great for a business casual relaxed start to the week. On the weekends, I pair it with leggings and sneakers to run a million errands. It's comfortable and easy to care for. I actually have two in blue and two in black I love it so much! Runs baggie, so don't hesitate to go down a size, especially if you're on the smaller side of your size level." —Jenni

    Get it from Universal Standard for $98 (available in sizes 00-0–38-40 and in two colors).

    20. A pearl-embellished top for the mom who loves to be a lil' ~extra~ but can never remember to actually accessorize. This top does it for her.


    Promising review: "I get so many compliments on this blouse! I love the feel and fit. I will admit the sides are cut a tad high, but I often find myself wearing either an undershirt in the winter or high-waisted pants. It's flowy, comfortable, and a great pop of color!" —Kristina

    Get it from Amazon for $14+ ( available in sizes 0X–3X and in four colors).

    21. A Levi's denim jacket that I won't even waste your time explaining. You and I both KNOW there's nothing more versatile or easy to throw on., Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this jacket!!! It goes with just about everything, and is comfortable. I went up a size after reading some of the reviews, and that worked out well for me. The length of the jacket is also a nice feature, it hits right about the hip, and is not a midriff. I'm really glad I ordered this jacket, it's so cute, and I know it will last a lifetime, Levi's makes the best denim wear as far as I'm concerned." —Jo Packer

    Get it from Amazon for $64.50 available in sizes XS–XL and plus 1X–4X and in 14 colors).

    22. A pair of platform sandals with flexible elastic straps and a padded footbed that will keep her feetsies nice and comfortable. Blisters? She doesn't know them.

    the sandals in pink

    Promising review: "While some feel skeptical buying shoes and apparel online, I am the opposite. Glad that I made another great buy. Very cute, stretchy, soft, comfortable, and stylish. I wore them to run errands at Costco, went grocery shopping, to the mall, and even work and my feet are still happy. For this price... I'd say they're a steal." —Yulie

    Get them from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 19 colors).

    23. A one-and-done button-down shirt dress that's soft, silky, and oh-so-easy to style. Basically, mom just has to add shoes.


    Promising review: "I love this dress. Super comfy. The material is a nice weight and I love how the back dips down a little lower that the front." —Tracy S.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.24+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in five colors/prints).

    24. A pair of criss-cross faux fur slippers with memory foam insoles that'll have mom feel like she's walking on a literal cloud. Since they have a waterproof and slip-proof sole, she can also show them off while running errands.,

    The seller advises going up a size for the most comfortable fit and reviewers largely agree, so do some sleuthing to figure out your friend's size before purchasing.

    Promising review: "These slippers feel like a hug on my feet. They have a hard bottom so you can wear them out. The top part is so incredibly soft!!! I love these! If you’re worried about sizing — size up." —Cyndi Lundeberg

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S–XL and nine colors).

    25. A lightweight wool lounge set because months ago, she saw Mindy Kaling rocking matching loungewear all over IG and ever since, she's been dying to try it.

    Gentle Herd

    Gentle Herd is a sustainable clothing brand that ethically sources their cashmere and wool from Inner Mongolia.

    Promising review: "This set is extremely comfortable and fits very well. It’s even nicer than the much more expensive one I ordered from J Crew." —nicole.sroka

    Get the two-piece set from Gentle Herd for $95 (available in sizes S–L).

    26. A pair of patterned palazzo pants she can pull on over any tank top or tee and look perfectly pulled together.,

    Promising review: "These are my favorite pants at the moment! I've never received so many compliments on a pair of pants before and I love how comfortable they are! I didn't think to take photos until after I got home from work, but I wore black pointed toe pumps and a sheer, long sleeve, open-front cardigan. I also brought black flats to change into and both looked nice with these pants. They are just like pictured in photos and are thin without being see-through! They can be easily dressed up or down, and would work well on all body types. You need these pants in your life!!!"" —YoMommaRhonda

    Get them from Amazon for $19.98+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 13 colors/patterns).

    27. A popcorn-knit cardigan for days when she wants to look pulled together, but also feel like she's wrapped up in a throw blanket. And who wouldn't want that?


    Promising review: "Love love love! This sweater is soooooo comfortable! I'll definitely be purchasing more (probably in each color available)! The fit is oversized like advertised...I always seem to do better when going a size up when buying clothes on Amazon...this time, not the case. But it's still super cute just a tad more 'over-sized' than I'd usually wear. The tag says to lay flat to try and I forgot when switching over the wash to the dryer.. It didn't damage the sweater or change it in any way but I wouldn't chance it again and next time I will lay flat to dry. Super warm and can be dressed up or down! Very happy customer :)" —marissa benson

    Get it from Amazon for $26.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and 16 colors/patterns).

    28. A Parachute Cloud Cotton robe that's amassed a cult following with its fluffy gauze construction and trendy color palette. If mom's muumuu has seen better days, give her an upgrade.

    Parachute / Jessica Schramm, Jessica Schramm / Parachute

    Yes, we're aware that this is a bit of a splurge but if you're shopping for someone who deserves the best, this is it. The robe is made from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton (aka it's stronger, softer, and more absorbent than your average cotton) and it doesn't require any special care!

    Promising review: "I'm convinced this is the best robe in human existence. It's gotten to the point where my husband has asked me if I'm ever going to wear anything else. If I'm home, I am robe-in. 10/10. 5 stars." —Melissa M.

    Get it from Parachute for $99 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors).

    29. A raglan tee — with striped sleeves, pocket detailing, and a lil' V-neck action — sure to please any mom whose closet is full of T-shirts, T-shirts, and oh, more T-shirts.,

    Promising review: "It’s rare to find the perfect plus size clothing online... this shirt did not disappoint! ☺️ Extremely comfortable, true to size, and the price is perfect. I will be buying more clothing from this brand again! 10/10 would recommend." —Angelique

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and seven colors/patterns).

    31. A set of tortoiseshell claw clips so she can get her hair up off her neck when temps start to rise. Since the pack comes with two, I bet she'd even let you steal one from time to time.,

    Promising review: "I just opened it today so I can’t speak to sturdiness yet as I’ve only just worn it since I opened the package but both clips look very high quality and like they're constructed well. They are very attractive AND ARE COMFORTABLE!!! The most comfortable clips I’ve ever worn! I never knew how uncomfortable the other one I was wearing was! Also in the package was a sweet little gift of some Bobby pins (who doesn’t need more of those) and a hair tie (also need all of the hair ties). Exceptional." —Amazon Customer

    Get the two-piece set from Amazon for $11.85.

    32. A chic blazer she can toss on over spring dresses, office-appropriate slacks, or bike shorts if she dares to follow in Kim K's fashion footsteps.

    Outdoor Voices

    Promising review: "These leggings are the best!!! They are so comfortable and lightweight. They feel like hardly wearing anything and stay in place, never riding down with movement.

    Get them from Outdoor Voices for $88 (available in sizes XS–XL and four colors).

    35. A lightweight, quilted pullover that, comfort-wise, isn't a far cry from her '90s-era sweat sets, but ~fashion-wise,~ is a major upgrade.,

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this pullover! I am tall and finding pullovers that are long enough and have sleeves long enough without being baggy has always been a challenge for me. I ordered a medium and this fits perfectly in all the right places! Its made of the softest material that is comfortable while still looking high quality. It’s been through the washer and dryer multiple times and still looks brand new with no pills and has not shrunk. It’s perfect for fall and can easily be layered under a down vest for winter. I cannot wait to order this in more colors!!" —Julianne

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 28 colors).
