    the card with a watercolor of Freddie Mercury and the text "Mamaa! ooo"

    This San Diego-based shop has soooo many cute and funny cards! This one is blank inside so you have plenty of space to ~rhapsodize~ about what makes your mama awesome.

    3. Or an equally accurate mug with a similar sentiment that'll put all your siblings' gifts (and your siblings themselves) to shame.

    white mug that reads "my favorite child gave me this mug"

    Promising review: "I didn't purchase this, but my son did. He wanted to make a statement and insisted that I open his present first on Christmas. I have four children and it is an ongoing thing with them saying and trying to get me to say that they are my favorite child! Of course I get around it every time. Lol! But I loved it and will be using it all the time with my other mugs. I believe it is dishwasher safe. Such a fun gift to receive!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    4. A genius bottle stopper featuring a fellow who's had a little too much — he'll fall over if she presses the stopper down! She's about to be the biggest hit of the wine mom Zoom call.


    I got my mom this for Mother's Day last year and she loves it!!!

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    5. A *terrifying* (if you're a gnome) ferocious kitty statue to bring a smile to the face of the woman who's been there for you gnome-atter what.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my mother for Mother's Day; she loves cats and hates lawn gnomes so it was a perfect gift for her! It arrived as scheduled in great condition. I was pleased to see the quality of the product far exceeded my expectations. My mom loved the gift and got a good laugh out of it! Definitely worth the money." —April

    Get it from Amazon for $28.95 (there's also a dog version here).

    6. An iconic Mean Girls quote tee that the mom who always knows the 411, the hot gossip, AND the cool jams straight up deserves.

    7. A LOL-worthy fruit-shaped cat cap any cat mom will want to put on their fur baby ASAP. Also, if your mom doesn't already run an Insta for the family kitty, this is the perfect reason to start.,

    Promising review: "I would give these 10 stars if I could, but I'm sure Freya would give it a -3. I think she looks like an angelic banana, but she is not amused. I don't believe this causes her physical discomfort, but her self-esteem has plummeted. Long story short, makes your cat look stupid, as planned. LOL." —Amazon Customer

    Get one in a random fruit from Amazon for $7.59.

    8. Clever stainless steel drop earrings echoing a phrase you've heard your mom say many times. Granted, it's usually in reference to how you react to receiving instructions or advice, rather than phrases that'd look cute on jewelry, but she'll appreciate that you at least listened to *part* of what she said.

    round earrings, with one reading "In one ear..." and the other "and out the other"

    Get them from Amazon for $13.89.

    9. Super cute and realistic animal slippers that come in pretty much any creature you can imagine, so you're sure to find her favorite. She'll think you getting her a gift this perfect is quite the ~feet~., Amazon

    They've got over 1,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "These slippers are amazing! I live in the basement with hard floors (tile, wood, anything but carpet), and the floor is super cold. It's like living on an iceberg, and no matter how many layers of socks I wore, my feet were still cold. I have a condition called Raynaud's where my hands and feet have trouble staying warm and turn blue and purple because there isn't enough blood flow to keep them warm, so I practically always have cold feet, and they often go completely numb from being so cold. I put these slippers on, and within about two minutes, my feet were warm. The feeling came back into them, and I could not feel the cold floor at all. For practically the first time ever, I'm going through winter with warm feet! These slippers are incredibly comfortable, fit my feet exactly, and they are completely adorable to boot! I loved these so much that my mom and sister got some as well! My mom got sheep, and my sister got penguins. All of us love these miracle slippers. I HIGHLY recommend them! They are the best slippers I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot." —Random chick

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in six sizes and in 48 animals).

    10. For moms who are cool with R-rated jokes, Fifty Shades of Chicken, a hilariously steamy cookbook full of 50 Shades of Grey parody passages (from the point of view of the chicken) before every recipe. Oh, plus pics of shirtless dudes handling the bird. Yes, really.

    Barnes & Noble

    The tantalizing recipes include "Dripping Thighs," "Mustard-Spanked Chicken," and "Chicken with a Lardon." Plus, the book is divided into three sections — "The Novice Bird," "Falling to Pieces," and "Advanced Techniques" — so every chef is sure to find something that turns them on.

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this book. This book is so funny and made a great read, but I also found so many other ways to cook chicken. Great ideas and great book." —AmandaPolite

    11. A hilariously stylish can koozy that looks a heck of a lot like her favorite winter coat. Because who hasn't ever dreamt of matching with their beer?

    Uncommon Goods

    13. Toddlers Are A**holes: It's Not Your Fault, a book that'll make anyone who has (or has ever had) a young kid absolutely crack up. And let's face it, they REALLY NEED a break from "Baby Shark."

    the book cover
    Workman Publishing Company Inc

    It's got over 1,600 positive reviews from parents who have found it a little TOO REAL.

    Promising review: "Could not stop laughing. As a mother of three grown children a year apart and a grandmother of four, I know plenty about toddlers. I originally bought this for my daughter but she's too busy with her little joys to read. And it is true grandma revenge!" —Carol LaPerchia

    Box Lunch

    Get it from Box Lunch for $44.90 (available in unisex sizes S-2XL).

    15. A ~clucking~ fantastic rubber chicken purse that simply can't be beak for giving your mom a laugh *and* scoring her compliments.

    purse shaped like a chicken

    Promising review: "So being a student of vintage comedy, when I heard there was a rubber chicken purse, I did not hesitate. I was carrying it and women were breezing past me saying, 'That's an AWESOME purse!' Friends who know me well go wild over it and say that 'it's so you.' Plenty of room. My only very minor complaint is that the zipper is more narrow than the bag itself (wish it went all the way to the end of the tail), and I have to turn my wide pocketbook on its side to get it out. That said, if you like the style, go for it. You won't regret it." —Kubelsky

    Get it from Amazon for $32.53.

    16. A mom-themed coloring book to help her unwind after a long day of being the best (but also most stressed) mama ever.

    CreateSpace Publishing,

    Promising review: "This coloring book is SO AWESOME! It's funny, adorable, and so much fun to color. I love that it includes both intricate detailed pages and ones that are more like conventional kid's coloring pages. I really love the detailed pages, but sometimes I just want to color something without having to worry too much about not being sloppy. I think it's great that I have the option with this one. I also love that the back of each page is black and has its own special design; it helps with pens/makers bleeding through AND looks cute! This is an excellent adult coloring book. I will absolutely purchase it again both for myself AND as a gift for the moms in my family." —liza

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. A dish towel for the mom whose cooking is so fabulous, you'd prefer it over anything Seamless has to offer.

    the blue and green towel printed with houses and a speech bubble saying "best restaurant in town"

    Promising review: "Best kitchen towel ever. The weave is excellent for drying dishes/glasses and leaves no fuzz on anything. Highly absorbent yet thin enough to be maneuverable. And the design? Adorable. Yes, the best place in town is right in your own kitchen. The colors are nicely combined. I received it as a gift but went back and purchased other Blue Q towels and have been totally pleased with all of them. Great quality, price, and addition to any kitchen." —FlickRN3

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    18. Or an equally delightful towel, because she's both your Schitt's Creek watching buddy and your cooking buddy. Or at least, your attempting-to-cook buddy.

    white towel that reads "fold in the cheese"
    MoonlightMakers/Amazon Handmade

    It's from a North Carolina-based small biz that makes all sorts of funny towels!

    Promising review: "This was a Christmas gift. Looked good and loved the saying for a funny gift to family members that LOVED Schitt's Creek. Perfect for me to give." —Christina R.

    Get it from MoonlightMakers on Amazon Handmade for $14.95.

    19. A sculptural yet silly serving plate whose goofy face actually serves a purpose — to provide perfect dividers for different snacks and hors d'oeuvres. Her future guests will be so amused once they clean the plate!

    the platter with eyes that are small bowls and a divider down the center sculpted into a nose and round mouth, holding grapes
    Uncommon Goods

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $83.99 (originally $120).

    20. An instantly downloadable cross-stitch template that'll make a satisfying project for the woman who has put up with your farts for decades. Poor thing.

    cross stitch desing that reads "this is a fart-friendly home" with plants, hearts, birds, and a house

    Since you can immediately download the pattern and print it yourself, this makes a great last minute gift! This Albany-based shop has lots of fun designs if you wanna gift Mom a whole bundle.

    Promising review: "This chart gave me a good laugh. Excellent for my fart-loving partner. A very well-put-together chart; perfect for beginners and a nice easy design for advanced stitchers who just want something simple between their larger projects. I look forward to stitching it. :D" —Lizzie Crankybum

    Get it from JacktheStitcher on Etsy for $6.25.

    21. A funny-because-it's-true tote for the mom who's fed up with sexist crap (but also needs a way to carry all her crap).

    pink, yellow, and blue toe bag that reads "I'm a mother I don't have time for the patriarchy" in pretty cursive

    TBH, no one has time for the patriarchy.

    Promising review: "High-quality material, and extremely well-printed. Bag is quite spacious; this isn't one of those paper-thin printed bags." —James G.

    Get it from Human for $19.99+ (originally $32.99+; available in two sizes).

    22. I Am More Beautiful Than... — a cheeky book of adorable illustrated affirmations listing a bunch of random stuff she is, in fact, more beautiful than. She'll LOL but also be very touched.

    the book with a unicorn on the cover

    Examples include "tree clip art," "a baby dolphin's love," and "a tattoo of a ladybug." It's true! She is more beautiful than all those things!

    Promising review: "Helps cheer me up. I struggle with affirmations and I think a lot of them are cheesy. This book is great — sends the positive message with a little humor!" —nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $11.80.

    23. And finally, an absolutely incredible float for anyone whose mom has both a pool and an impeccable sense of style. I'm sure she'll feel a serious Birkin-ship with this prezzie.,

    Okay fine, it looks more like a Kelly than a Birkin, but let me make my pun in peace!

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this purse float! It’s big enough for two people! So very relaxing and a lot of ways to lie on it. The best float by far I’ve ever bought, and the sturdiness of it is superb." —Layne

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.
