    23 Of The Best Mother's Day Gifts You Can Get At Target

    You're about to hit the bull's-eye on the perfect Mother's Day gift.

    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 10th, we can't guarantee that it will arrive on time, so best to order ASAP!

    1. A 7-in-1 Instant Pot that can pressure cook, sauté, steam, slow cook, warm, and more — it's great for making a variety of dishes such as meats, eggs, rice, and soup, just to name a few. It's bound to become mom's go-to kitchen gadget.


    This Instant Pot features 14 Smart Programs so Mom can quickly whip up things like ribs, soups, beans, rice, chicken, eggs, cheesecakes, and more. It has three customizable temperature settings and easy-to-use/read controls and icons. Plus, thanks to the free Instant Pot app for iOS and Android, Mom can access hundreds of easy recipes. The stainless steel pot is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Best buy! I was hesitant to buy one of these, but am SO glad I did. This thing is amazing. We've already made yogurt, oatmeal, and chicken in it. Cuts cooking time in half at least, and keeps cleanup to a minimum. LOVE!" —MD2019

    Price: $99.99

    2. A sleek self-watering planter that'll help make plant-care easy and hassle-free.


    Promising review: "I love these planters. They are sleek, attractive, and functional. What more could you ask? Very affordable!" —Stylish Mom

    Price: $3+ (available in six colors, and three sizes)

    3. A plush throw blanket so she can get all nice and cozy while curling up on the couch with her favorite book or to watch her favorite movie or television show.


    Promising review: "Soft, warm, cozy, well-made, and the perfect size for one or two people. I washed it before using, and it laundered perfectly. No shrinking, fading, or shedding. There was very little lint on the dryer filter, and that's unusual for a new blanket. This will wear well and last, and you can't beat the price. Highly recommend." —TexasMom

    Price: $14.44 (available in six colors)

    4. A Google Nest Mini for streaming her music and controlling other smart home devices with just the sound of her voice (like dimming the lights, pausing the TV, and turning up the heat).


    Promising review: "Got this gift for my mom and she loves it! Great sound and actually understands what you’re saying. It’s also a convenient size and can be moved around! Will buy again." —Jvana

    Price: $29 (originally $49, available in three colors)

    5. A cookbook by your mother's favorite television mom, Joanna Gaines, filled with delicious recipes and mouthwatering photography.


    Some notable recipes: Mushroom-Gruyére Quiche, French Toast with Vanilla Maple Syrup, and Lemon-Lavender Tart

    Promising review: "I loved the first cookbook, so I know this will be great too! Delicious recipes!" —Target Reviewer

    Price: $21

    6. A Burt's Bees gift set that'll leave your favorite lady feeling moisturized and pampered.


    Comes with Honey & Grapeseed Oil hand cream, Coconut foot cream, Lemon Butter Cuticle cream, Almond & Milk hand cream, and hand salve that'll moisturize and smooth dry, rough, and cracked hands and feet. It also comes with Pomegranate lip balm to leave lips feeling healthy, while also giving them a hint of color.

    Promising review: "This kit is really cool. You get a little bit of everything that Burt's Bees makes for hands and feet. I didn't care for the lip balm or the honey hand cream, so I gave them to my mom. She loves them. I like that this kit included things I wouldn't have purchased on my own, like the coconut foot cream. I absolutely adore it." —MissItaly1989

    Price: $11.99

    7. A heated massage pillow so your mom can lay back, relax, and enjoy a really great massage — arms, back, neck, it's up to her!


    Promising review: "I have a really bad back and I don't want to bother my boyfriend for back massages, so I bought this. It is absolutely amazing. I use it for all my knots. This is totally worth it. My back has never felt more amazing." —Aly

    Price: $44.99

    8. A Kindle Paperwhite — a waterproof, e-reader with a built-in adjustable light so mom can enjoy her reads day or night, inside the house or outside by the pool, glare-free.


    This e-reader is Audible-compatible, so once connected to Bluetooth, she can listen to her book through headphones or a speaker.

    Promising review: "Love it! Lightweight, nice backlight, waterproof, and connects to Goodreads. If your library has e-book apps, you can borrow free e-books with a library card." —Target Reviewer

    Price: $89.99 (originally $129.99)

    9. A collared nightgown so cute and cozy, Mom may never want to wear anything else. Who can blame her?


    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes XS—2XL and 1XL—4XL)

    10. A Belgian waffle maker that'll have her enjoying a delicious, but simple-to-make breakfast. If you live with your mom, consider this a gift to yourself, too.


    Promising review: "I just used this waffle maker for the first time. My waffles came out perfectly!! I thought it would take a couple tries to get it right, so I am pleasantly surprised. There was no mess. The batter did not leak over the sides, and the waffle was perfectly shaped. I did actually read the directions first and the helpful hints." —pepito

    Price: $17.99

    11. A scented soy candle for the perfect accompaniment on a cozy night — now all she needs is to light the fireplace, eat some comfort food, and of course, drink some wine.


    Promising review: "You know when a candle just inexplicably smells exactly like what it's called? Yeah... that." —KEL

    Price: $9.99

    12. A pair of Apple AirPods with a wireless charging case so Mom can listen to music, shows and movies, and audiobooks, wire-free, whether she's just hanging at home or going for a walk or run outside.


    A single charge allows for about three hours of talk time!

    Promising review: "This is my second time purchasing a pair from Target. I absolutely love them! Everything works fine and shipping was extremely fast. The pricing is even better. I totally recommend this product from Target." —Shawnee

    Price: $169.99

    13. And while you're at it, an AirPod hard shell case so keeping track of her headphones is easy and super stylish.


    These are good for other wireless earbuds too, not just AirPods!

    Price: $14.99 (available in three styles)

    14. A Jade roller that can help soothe skin, reduce puffiness, and promote fluid drainage. Mom will feel less stressed, which is always good.


    To use, she should apply a serum or moisturizer to clear skin and follow these roller movements: Start at the center of the forehead and roll towards the ear, repeating on both sides. Using the smaller end of the roller, gently roll the lids under the eye from the corner of the eye to the ear on both sides. Using the larger side of the roller, roll from the nose to the ear, covering the entire cheek and chin area. Lastly, roll from the chin to the collarbone and work outwards towards the sides of the neck.

    Promising review: "Was so happy to find this on Target, and for such a great price! Most of the Jade rollers on the market are much more expensive, or are so cheap that they are not even made with real stone. This one is heavy enough that you know it is good quality, and is squeak-free! I also own the mini version, and both are amazing. I use it with my serums every morning and night!" —abc123

    Price: $19.99

    15. A wine aerator mom simply sticks into the bottle of her favorite vino before pouring. The result? A glass of wine with an enhanced taste that'll make her wonder how she ever drank wine before owning something like this.


    Recommended to hand-wash!

    Promising review: "This works incredibly well, and it's so easy to just plug it into the wine bottle. It makes a difference in the wine and it comes apart easily for cleaning. Mine gets a lot of use." —ShoeFanatic

    Price: $13.69

    16. A book with prompts so you can write mom sentimental messages she'll truly love reading and will cherish forever.


    Promising review: "It gives you some great prompts and you fill it in with loving words. It made my mother cry — it was perfect!!" —Kay

    Price: $7.99

    17. A Fitbit Versa 2 with built-in Alexa that'll allow your mom to use her voice to set alarms and bedtime reminders, check the weather, track her heart rate, control Spotify, start an exercise — and you know, since it's a watch, she can also check the time.


    Promising review: "This is the perfect watch for a mom/nurse! I love how it keeps track of your activity, and it encourages you to keep going. Additionally, it is easy to use in the exam room for timing vitals. It also has the option for setting timers, (use to remind me to pump regularly at work, and helps my little one to potty train). It also makes for a great alarm clock, and it is wonderful to receive texts to this device. Great battery life!" —Jessica

    Price: $149.95 (originally $199.95, available in three colors)

    18. A color-changing flower cutout diffuser mom can fill with essential oils for some calming aromatherapy. Plus, it makes for a great decorative piece!


    This diffuser shuts off automatically when it runs out of water — about six hours of run-time. Recommended to either spot or wipe clean.

    Promising review: "I have been very happy with this diffuser. It's quiet, colorful, and I like the larger capacity water tank. It also puts out a good mist and looks beautiful with the flowers. I loved it so much, I ordered another one for my office." —JW

    Price: $21.99

    19. And of course, an essential oils kit featuring four scented oils (eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, and tea tree) that your mom can mix or use individually with her brand new diffuser.


    Promising review: "Love this oil kit. It's a great buy and well-worth the price. A few drops go a very long way." —Brittle

    Price: $15.99

    20. A KitchenAid stand mixer for a gadget that'll truly last Mom a lifetime. This baby works hard to mix, knead, and whip ingredients super fast. Plus, you can purchase additional attachments separately to make your mother's time spent cooking and baking even quicker and easier.


    It features 10 optimized speeds that are powerful enough for a multitude of cooking and baking tasks. The 5 quart stainless steel bowl stays sturdy in the mixer, but is easy to lift and is dishwasher-safe.

    Price: $229.99 (originally $449.99, available in four colors)

    21. A rollerball perfume that contains notes of black currant, peony, and amber so mom can bask in the fact that she smells like a yummy mix of fruit and florals.


    This vegan perfume is phthalate-, paraben-, dye-, aluminum-, proplyene glycol-, and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "This perfume smells heavenly! I bought it as a gift and loved the scent so much that I went back to get myself one, too. A little goes a long way, but I don't find it too overpowering." —Kate

    Price: $11.04

    22. A pour-over coffee maker that eliminates the need for paper filters so your mom can enjoy her coffee with a richer taste and more robust aroma — this may just make the best coffee she's ever tasted.


    The carafe is made of tasteless borosilicate glass. It comes with a permanent stainless steel filter, which is what eliminates the need for paper filters. This allows for slow and even distribution of hot water over coffee power. It has a 34 ounce capacity, a removable cuff to protect hands from hot glass, and all parts are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Makes excellent coffee! Much smaller than expected. If you were to make eight cups, it would fill the entire base. Not super hard to clean, and it's great to start my day with delicious coffee!" —UnsupervisedTargetSpree

    Price: $19.99

    23. And while you're at it, you should totally get mom this mug so she can enjoy her coffee (or another hot beverage of her choice) with the type of kindhearted daily greeting she deserves.


    This is dishwasher- and microwave-safe!

    Promising review: "This is such a pretty peachy/soft pink shade — I guess some may call this a 'blush' shade. I especially love that 'Good Morning Sunshine' is written in a pretty and whimsical gold font on BOTH sides of the mug. Holds way more beverage than expected. Very pleased with this purchase!!!" —msh089

    Price: $5
