    54 Mother's Day Gifts That Are Actually Super Practical

    There's no better gift than something they'll actually use more than once.

    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. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for May 8th!

    1. A stone essential-oil diffuser so they can decorate their space with a gorgeous piece while simultaneously making their room smell heavenly.

    Promising review: "I’ve owned a variety of diffusers and this is the best one by far. It’s worth the price. The build quality is excellent and the stone cover is superb. The best part is that you don’t hear it running and it lasts all day (eight hours) and even into the evening. I’ve owned others of a similar style, but for some reason this one last twice as long on a single water fill. I absolutely love this purchase. I strongly recommend it if you’re looking for one." —HavoKS

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Mother's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $42.99 (available in five colors).

    2. A stand mixer that'll be the perfect quality dupe for a *cough* more expensive brand we all know too well. It comes in the most darling pastel hues, is compact, *and* guarantees they'll be whipping out those dusty cookbooks to make something new.

    3. Wireless Bluetooth earbuds with 80,000+ reviews (!!!) so they can work out, work, relax, or just enjoy some peace in their hectic lives. They're sweat-proof, block noise, last up to four hours on a single charge (the case itself has 14 hours of charging time), ~and~ are affordable!

    4. A sunlamp because sometimes it can be difficult to get adequate sunlight and this bad boy will help boost their mood, improve focus, and help their body create a more consistent sleep schedule. Perfect for night owls!

    5. A SodaStream so they can stop spending $$$ on all of those cases of seltzer and just make it right at home for a fraction of the cost. This turns flat water fizzy in just a few seconds but you can totally buy fun flavors to add to it! Plus, did I mention it's *such* a planet saver?

    6. A smartphone lens kit that'll give them professional camera quality photos without the hassle of actually owning a professional camera.

    7. A Wilton cooling rack for the mom whose entire personality revolves around giving everyone they love baked goods. We love this, mom. We need this, mom.

    12. A five-tier vertical planter so they can proudly display their green thumb they're constantly boasting about every time you give them a ring. Sure it's annoying, but when you try their new homemade pesto recipe, you'll be looking forward to the next phone call.

    15. A tile floor mat that, get this, they can customize by snapping the loose tiles into the beehive base and create any design they want! It's a great way to always have a mat *and* be able to refresh their entryway depending on the season.
