    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.

    Hey! When writing gift guides, we do our best to ensure that the products we feature will arrive in time. Shipping times can always vary depending on multiple factors, but due to COVID-19, being able to gauge whether or not something will arrive before Mother’s Day is even more complicated than normal. The majority of retailers are experiencing shipping delays, so even if you double-check shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 9th, we can't guarantee that it will arrive on time, so best to order ASAP!

    1. A pouch filled with eucalyptus and lavender to leave her shower smelling like a luxurious day at the spa. I can't imagine anything more pleasant for Mother's Day, TBH.

    EcualyptusBlooms / Etsy

    I've personally hung up a bundle eucalyptus branches in my shower and can confirm it really is a game changer — it makes every shower experience feel refreshing. So, I can only imagine how lovely this sachet is in its place. A lot less mess, but all the benefits! Added bonus? EucalyptusBlooms is a woman-owned small business based out of Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Promising review: "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! The second I opened our mailbox the smell from the triple-sealed mailing package was simply heavenly! What a treat! Eucalyptus Blooms is THE best!" —Robbie Weber

    Get three pouches from EcualyptusBlooms on Etsy for $13.59.

    2. A 12-oz bottle of Mike's Hot Honey that'll help anyone take the flavors of their boring weeknight recipes to the next level with just a drizzle.

    I've introduced everyone in my life to this delectable condiment. Mike's Hot Honey is sweet with a kick of heat — you'll want to pour it over everything you eat. I personally love it on chicken cutlets and pepperoni pizza, but do with it what you will!

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. A pair of Ugg classic ultra mini bootie to keep their feet feeling pampered all day long — they deserve it!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, ugg / Via

    I recently got these Ugg minis and have been wearing them as my "work shoes" now that I WFH full time. They're the perfect mix between a slipper and an actual shoe, so I can continue to wear my comfiest clothes to "the office" (my kitchen table) but also feel like I've somewhat transitioned into work mode for the day. They're super soft, as all Uggs are, and honestly just make me happy! They are true-to-size so no worries about sizing up or down.

    Get them from Amazon for $139.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

    FYI, this is included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    4. A kinetic sand box for adults to provide soothing sensory play — because a tool like this shouldn't be reserved for kiddos.

    a wooden platter with marbled material in the middle filled with sand

    "I keep a container of kinetic sand in my room to play with when I get anxious. One of my therapists had some in her office that I really liked playing with during our sessions. It really just helps me stay grounded and present when I have traumatic memories or intrusive thoughts." —egwenger

    Promising review (for this set): "This set was the perfect gift for my 20-year-old daughter. She has anxiety and she immediately opened it and was playing with it with her friend for hours. The tray is very durable and the sand doesn’t dry out which I initially was worried about. It looks very modern and not childish in her room. It’s helped calm her and allow her to relax. Even my younger kids were jealous so I might be purchasing more for Christmas." —Smoore

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98.

    5. A knit weighted blanket unlike any you've probably seen before — it's weighted naturally with a layering technique instead of with artificial filling. And it looks SO snuggly!

    mybearaby / Via, Bearaby

    I finally got my hands on one of these and it has been *such* a great tool for managing my anxiety. When I feel myself getting super tense from stress and nerves I take a break and lie under this blanket for a bit and I can feel the tension in my body smooth out — it's wonderful. Be warned though, I often fall asleep while using it because it's so calming.

    Promising review: "This blanket is great. The material is soft and comfortable. The weight is perfect. What I love the most is that there are no beads used for the weight. I had a previous weighted blanket that the beads came loose after just a few weeks making the blanket useless. This blanket makes you feel like you are wrapped in a soft hug. I sleep so much better and do not wake up as often. I highly recommend this blanket." —Jennifer M.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249 (available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds and 10 colors).

    6. Nintendo's Fitness Boxing 2 game for the Nintendo Switch to help you break a sweat without leaving your living room — trust me, it works.

    the advertisement for fitness boxing 2

    I've been a longtime fan of the original Fitness Boxing game, so it was a no-brainer to me to add the new version into my workout lineup. I use this game as a way to mix up my exercises / when I don't feel like venturing out to the gym. I have to say, it's a SERIOUS workout. I'm usually sore for days after and have burnt up to 300 calories in 30 minutes! If you get tired of the provided songs, mute your TV and turn on your favorite workout playlist — a great hack, if you ask me! If you're also upgrading to the new game, don't worry, you'll be able to transfer over all of your original data.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available as a code or a physical copy).

    7. A Dead Sea mud mask they can use to host a makeshift spa night at home. Fresh skin and an opportunity to bond with their kids? What more could any mom want?,

    My sister and I have used this mask countless times while watching trash TV on my couch — it's a fun way to bond and improve our skin. A little goes a long way so this product will last 'em quite a while.

    Promising review: "I'm not joking, I thought this was just going to be a normal face mask but I was wrong. The application was smooth and easy. After waiting 10 minutes, I took it off face was smooth as a baby's butt, no lie. This made my face so soft and feeling refreshed and hydrated!!!" —olesya gordeyeva

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in two scents).

    8. An iconic KitchenAid stand mixer, aka the holy grail of appliances, she's definitely been eyeing (and dropping hints about wanting) forever in hopes of taking her baking game to the next level.

    Mint green stand mixer

    Promising review: "The KitchenAid Pro 5 is a superb product, even at full-price. Just remember to set the proper distance between the bowl and the wire whip, power knead, and flat beater, which is as easy as turning a screw. The instructions are in the manual (checkout the KitchenAid website and the online manual for many great recipes). You do have to scrape the sides from time to time, but if you don't want to do this you can purchase the flat beater with the flex edge. I make standard-sized batches and haven't had any splashing or flour spills during mixing so not having a splash guard hasn't been an issue for me. This mixer includes soft start. Highly recommend." —Bob

    Get it from Target on sale for $419.99 (available in five colors).

    9. A universal hair diffuser from DevaCurl to help her fight the good fight against frizz.


    Promising review: "Let me start by saying I've tried many different diffusers before this one. I have 3c/4a, very fine/flat curls. Normally when I diffuse, my hair is left a frizzy mess. I've resorted to sitting under a hooded dryer to avoid frizz. But then my hair dries super flat and weird. Not with the DevaFuser! I attach it to my blow-dryer from another brand. It fits perfectly. My hair dries in record time, with little to no frizz. I even have some volume on day one! I am really impressed. Give it a try. I hope it works just as well for you." —Britd03

    Get it from Amazon for $30.77.

    10. An embroidery kit for beginners that won't test your patience but'll provide you with a happy distraction and a pretty piece of art at the end of it all!

    three embroidered plants in a hoop

    "An embroidery kit! I had NO idea I’d be so into it but this beginner’s kit isn’t difficult at all and really calmed me down on an anxious day this weekend. It was a gift so I had no plans to try it but sat myself down in front of the TV and started and before I knew it, six episodes of The O.C. had passed, I felt so relaxed and mindful of the task, and had half an embroidered canvas. I actually look forward to getting to (hopefully) finish it today!"—ef3

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A good book that'll actually hold your attention and keep you entertained while also ensuring you take a break from all the screens that rule your world. Try out a light read like a romance novel or go all-in on a Book of the Month subscription to ensure you always have a new novel to dive into.

    sdessen / Via, kasiewest / Via, bookofthemonth / Via

    "Something light and cheesy like a Sarah Dessen or Kasie West book! they’re fun and sweet, and feel like they’re in a bubble of high school drama, romance, and happy endings." —liv2smile

    12. Four trinket dishes she can connect together to form one intricately designed place to store all odds 'n' ends efficiently and beautifully.


    Promising review: "This tray is cute, modern, durable, and is a great compliment to many rooms in my home. I find that having four individual trays is convenient, and I also like that I can combine them together if I do not need to have everything separate. Having the ability to customize the pieces is handy for creativity, as well as complimenting the space I want to use them in. I sometimes have random trinkets that quickly clutter up a space and this tray is a great way to visually add division and organization." —Kimhoay

    Get them from Amazon for $9.89.

    13. A delicate floral iPhone 11 case that'll make her special day (and every day after that) feel as fresh as the first day of spring while also keeping her device protected.,

    Promising review: "Just as pictured. Amazing pastel colors. I like the matte on the transparent area. Very sturdy, my phone falls more times than I can count but still alive! The side buttons glow under LED lights :)" —Yasselly

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors and for iPhone 11).

    14. The Wand, a handheld filter designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. This lil' gadget will have her singing out "blesssss my souuuuul" like one of The Muses from Hercules.

    a model stirring the wand into their wine

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    15. Bananagrams – it'll *lit*erally bring a smile to any bookworm's face — it combines all the fun of crossword puzzles and Scrabble for a fast-paced game anyone who loves words will appreciate.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "Definitely a lot of fun! Got this for a friend after having bought two previous versions for us and for some cousins. Everybody loves playing it and end up spending hours at a time! Helps you learn new words and while not exactly scrabble, knowing a bunch of two letter words come in handy when you're trying to win!" —Minion

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.Check out our full review of Party Bananagrams (#2 in the post)!

    16. A John Frieda hot brush for your *very tired* best friend who just had a baby and could use the pick-me-up of a good hair day.

    BuzzFeed /

    Promising review: "I am not a paid person who writes reviews. In fact I usually don't write them at all. But let me start out by saying holy crap! This is amazing, not only was it so easy and fast... I have a salon blowout that actually looks great...and I never went to the salon! So I can't so my hair at all ever. The best I do is flat iron or messy bun, mkay? But I'm obsessed. When I go to the salon it looks great for two days and then bam I'm crying, 'cause I can't get my hair pretty like she did it, and now I hate it and myself. Sound familiar? Well I'm living proof this is amazing and it truly works. I won't lie I was hesitant because this looks and sound like crap/too good to be true. It's not!!! Happy buying — I'm buying another for my mom for Xmas how awesome!" —tangi raysor

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    17. An exfoliating body scrub and body wash that'll leave her skin silky, smooth, and refreshed.

    lovebeautyandplanet / Via, Amazon

    I'm a sucker for anything made by Love, Beauty and Planet, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to try out this body scrub in my shower. This product is infused with organic coconut oil and Bulgarian roses. It smells AMAZING and leaves my body feeling like velvet — definitely a luxurious add-on for any shower experience. Then I'll top off the whole experience by covering myself in the equally-lovely lotion. Can't beat it!

    Promising review: "Loved this scrub and wash combo! I used both during baths and it felt super luxurious. The scrub is gritty but not TOO tough on your skin, and the wash has a silky smooth consistency. The scent is beautiful and rosy, pretty strong (which I like, what’s the point of soap if it isn’t strong?) Would def purchase again!" —carmavilla

    Get them from Amazon for $14.49.

    18. A personalized ring so they can keep their kiddos' names on them at all times — think of it as an upgrade to that necklace she likely has with mini charm figures of her kids hanging from it.

    19. A subscription to Atlas Coffee Club to bring aromatic, fresh beans from all over the world right to your caffeine-loving mom's porch.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, atlascoffeeclub / Via

    My fellow BuzzFeed editor Kayla Suazo tried out Atlas Coffee Club and only had good things to say:

    "My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it's heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. The Peruvian coffee has this dark, almost chocolate taste to it, so I imagine it would be delicious with a morning sweet treat (maybe I should start eating pie every day?). The Colombian batch, on the other hand, was a little lighter roast-wise but still had delicious notes of rich sweetness. TL;DR: both of them were incredible both in taste and quality."

    Get a subscription to Atlas Coffee Club for $9+ (available in a half bag, single bag, or double bag and shipments every two or four weeks).

    Promising review: "Makes life easier with a spoon that attaches in one place and not having to worry about it slipping down inside the cup. Loved it so much I gifted it to another person. Will definitely buy again." —Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

    21. A set of bath bombs they can toss into the tub to unwind after a particularly stressful day and watch their worries ~fizzle~ away.


    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BATH BOMBS!!!! I think they are fun in terms of the packaging, the names, the colors and the little 'extras' mixed in the bombs. I personally feel they are just the right size and love the colors. The first time around I was concerned about the color part but no worries — doesn't stain the tub. They are very moisturizing for the long tough New York winter we are experiencing this year; my skin tends to be dry but using these bath bombs on a regular basis has helped to keep my skin nice and soft. And the number of bath bombs in the set along with the price is just right!" —Pamela

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $27.95.

    22. An iconic Kris Jenner sticker for Mom to put on her water bottle as a daily reminder that she's awesome and "doing amazing, sweetie."

    My husband and I recently acquired four new plant babies from Bloomscape to keep us company during our period of self-isolation. We couldn't be more impressed with how nicely packaged they came (safe 'n' snug!) and taking care of the plants has been a nice stress-reliever. Probably because their cacti and need very little from us, but still! We've named the biggest cactus Alice.

    Get them from Bloomscape: a trio of plants from for $80 (available in three pot colors).

    27. A vintage-inspired espresso machine for your mom who would appreciate nothing more than sippin' on a high class coffee drink and daydreaming she's on vacation in Italy.

    illy_coffee / Via

    Promising review: "I got this machine in tandem with a coffee subscription and couldn't be happier. Making espresso is so much easier and clean-up takes about 5 seconds and you don't need to deal with loose coffee grounds since it's in the capsule. I also love that the capsules are recyclable with the illy plan. The machine is a nice compact size and has a sleek, classic design." —MrsPeacock

    It comes with a base coat, an activator, a top coat, five color powders, a nail file, a brush, and instructions.

    Promising review: "This product is great! As someone who is CONSTANTLY getting their nails done (dipping powder) at salons, it has been hard to do so because of COVID-19. I was looking for an inexpensive kit with neutral colors that I could use. This starter kit has been an absolute lifesaver during these unprecedented times. It is so easy to use! I finished off my nails with a gel top coat and cured it under the UV light that I had from a while ago (I attached a photo on the right). Overall it's an amazing product — very satisfied!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98.

    32. An Echo Dot, so she can shout at Alexa to turn on your lights, play her favorite song, and tell her about the weather. Mom will feel SUPER productive without even lifting a finger.

    a white echo dot on a side table

    Promising review: "I had no idea I'd love Alexa so much — I wake up in the morning and she does the routine I've set up, and she's so comforting and useful and fun overall. My husband and I played Skills trivia games for hours last night. If we had kids it would be even more super useful (kids workouts, stories, games) — we even had a goodnight story read to us by Alexa and it was awesome. I'm really loving it. The Echo Dot itself is pretty great — the sound quality is pretty good, the bass when turned up is not that great, but if you really want to rock out you can connect it to other speakers or just use something else instead. I'm really surprised by how much I like the Alexa app (and the Echo Dot), because I'm a little resistant to technology, but it's pretty easy to figure out and feels like a new little buddy in the home. I'm excited to get some SmartHome stuff now so I can turn on/off lights, heat, etc. Really cool, though, overall — I feel like Judy Jetson!" —Leah

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four colors).

    33. A personalized photo book filled with pictures of special memories that'll fill your parents' hearts' with joy.

    Artifact Uprising

    I used Artifact Uprising to make copies of my wedding album for both my mom and my mother-in-law. We were able to feature more of each of their sides of the family with minimal effort — the results were gorgeous.

    Promising review: "Book was very well put together, the foil touch, the fabric, the binding. The paper was much thicker than I expected so the book felt even more substantial and special. Image reproduction was great. Colors were softer than the originals but the effect was still wonderful." —Jane C.

    Get it from Artifact Uprising for $59+ (available in six colors and with 30, 40, or 50 pages).

    34. A monthly self-care subscription box for the new mom in your life who has likely been struggling to pamper themselves or carve out some much-needed me-time.

    Promising review: "I've wanted a Cricut for years but never had the money till recently. I ordered the Joy mainly cause it's cheaper and I just don't have the space for the larger models, and I'm so glad I did cause it is absolutely PERFECT for my needs. I mainly wanted it to make custom decals for my car and whatnot and the Joy is just right for that. I've made 4 or 5 already and they all turned out great. Super easy to use too, I was up and cutting within 10 minutes of opening the box." —K. Lattanzio

    Get it from Amazon for $178.83.

    38. An Echelon Smart Bike that'll make her feel like she's in the midst of an intense workout class without the added pressure of *actually* being around people. / Via, Echelon

    Promising review: "I love my Echelon bike. It gives me the ability to stay in shape for the spring and summer seasons when I usually ride outdoors. Having the option to hop on the bike and jam out to music and get a workout in with various amounts of timed sessions. The capability of having a competitive atmosphere with the leaderboard, other riders, and instructors pushing me to achieve more is nothing short of amazing. I would recommend these bikes and affordable plans to anyone who likes to get a little more out of a workout. The options are endless, whether your looking to ride, strength train, stretch or do yoga. The total experience has given me a boost to continue to working toward a stronger and better person all year around. Thank you Echelon!" —Michael K

    Get it from Echelon for $839.98+ (available with a variety of subscription plans).

    40. And a rechargeable lighter, so she can light every candle and create the *perfect* ambience without concern that she'll run out of lighter fluid.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again. My first charge lasted me seven months!

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    41. A universal nail polish bottle handle from Olive and June she'll want if she loves doing her own nails but are forever struggling to do her opposite hand as beautifully as her dominant one.

    Olive and June

    I've been doing my own nails for a long, long time. It always seemed smarter to me to spend money on a bottle of polish I can keep instead of a manicure that only lasts a week. It's a skill that took a while to work on but, luckily, for at-home manicurists like myself The Poppy has made doing my nails a lot less challenging. It pops right onto any bottle of nail polish (not just Olive and June colors) and provides you with a stronger grip and a more accurate swipe.

    Get it from Olive and June or Target for $16.

    42. A New York Times crossword puzzle book any word nerd would be delighted to receive — just don't expect them to pay attention to you at all for the next week with the exception of asking you "what's an eight letter word for snow storm!?"


    Promising review: "I love this thing! The print is nice and large, and the spiral binding is super nice. The paper is still newspaper-y which makes it feel like a newspaper crossword without having to lug around a newspaper. I use erasable pens, and they erase great. The boxes are plenty big enough for the letters and the crosswords are all appropriately 'Monday' difficulty. Great thing to have! Can’t wait to finish it and move on to Tuesday!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    43. A Jason Momoa–inspired coloring book for your mom who not-so-secretly has a massive crush on him and always suggests watching Aquaman on movie night.

    44. An ever-popular Instant Pot with so many uses she'll need to take a deep breath before deciding what to make with it first.

    Promising Review: "This product is my best friend and I would marry it and grow old with it if I could. I’ve put pork loins, potatoes, yellow bundt cakes from boxed cake, rice, corn on the cob (look up INSTANT POT MILK CORN ON COB and you will never eat it any other way again!!!)... I’ve made pierogies, lasagna, apple dump cake, a whole chicken, bone broth, chicken noodle soup... and more. This is all in less than a month. I’m eating healthier. Eating out less. Cleanup is easy. The food tastes awesome." —Kim

    45. Apple AirPod Pro earbuds so she can block out the sounds of her bickering kids with her favorite tunes.

    My fellow editor Emma Lord may have just convinced me to upgrade from my old AirPods:

    "I have a pair of these, and they're not playing around. Once they're securely in your ear, you can toggle the headphones between noise-cancelling and regular sound, depending on your situation. I've been working from home, and the noise-cancelling is so effective that I can work next to a window where my neighbor is doing heavy construction and I don't hear anything louder than a faint buzzing. It's quieter than if I'd just plugged my ears with my own fingers. I'm also a runner, and these don't budge when you're sweating, which is nice. It's also handy that these toggle out of noise-cancellation mode, because I feel better being able to hear traffic and other people around me when I'm out and about. The TL;DR: I love these so much I have zero interest in owning another pair of headphones for as long as I live."

    48. Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free moisturizer she can count on to smell fantastic and leave her face feeling refreshed after the first application — it also doesn't hurt that the color of the lotion is ~pretty in pink~.


    I've been using this product for the last few months and it has quickly become one of my favorites. It's a brightening and lightweight moisturizer that really works! I like to use it in the morning for a fresh start to my day. The pretty pink hue and glass bottle also just looks gorgeous on my counter — no complaints!

    Promising review: "Amazing! I haven’t been able to use a moisturizer for a couple of years without a breakout until I tried this. I had very dry, sensitive skin a few years ago, and then all of a sudden I had oily, acne-prone skin. I started using this because my skin was suffering without moisturizer and I was hopeful. It has not caused one breakout! It has helped heal the breakouts I had when I started using the product. This sits well under makeup, and causes no excess oil throughout the day." —Sephora Customer
