We know, she told you not to get her anything. But the mom in your life likely changed your diapers, dealt with your teenage angst, and definitely has more than earned a token of appreciation this Mother’s Day. See our suggestions for a thoughtful gift to show her you care.


For The Mom Who Deserves To Be Pampered

Spoiler: every mom deserves to be pampered. But if the mom in your life needs help relaxing every once in a while, these luxurious soaps, a kombucha facial treatment, a mud mask, and a rejuvenating instant face mask might help.

If she’s not exactly a skincare addict, maybe a powerful massager or anxiety-reducing blanket might be more her speed.


For The Mom Who Needs Caffeine

Who doesn’t need more caffeine these days? She can fill this indestructible travel mug and take it with her anywhere and these beautiful stone mugs can join in on her mornings at home.

For tea lovers, this Breville One Touch is life changing, brewing tea to perfection every time with the push of a button.


For The Sentimental Mom

If she still prizes that macaroni necklace you made for her in 2nd grade, it’s probably a good idea to get her something on the nostalgic side. Raid the old family photo albums and get some custom frames from Framebridge, or, for a more modern look, have Fracture print your photo directly on to glass.

Commemorate your favorite vacation together by turning its location into wall art with Grafomap.

If you think she might want to be more hands-on, get her set up with a Cricut Maker kit, so she can craft the scrapbook, custom t-shirt designs, stickers, or whatever her heart desires.

If you’re after something truly unique, this app can 3D print your voice into a necklace pendant.


For Your Mom, The Hostess

Brooklyn Slate makes beautiful cheese boards, Brooklyn Butcher Blocks makes cutting boards a work of art, and this Coravin device will let her savor her favorite wines as long as she wishes.


For The Mom Who Just Wants To Relax at Home

Let your mom lounge and catch up on rest with some comforting gifts. This minimalist Parachute Essential Quilt will fit into any bedroom decor. Made with lightweight linen and cotton, it’ll be a bedroom staple year-round. Add in an actually nice, not itchy robe and she can bum around the house carefree.

Complete the look with some Glerups slippers. The shoes’ rubber soles are sturdy enough to go outside to check the mail.


For The Plant Mom

Even if you moved out of her house decades ago, she still might enjoy having things around her that need her. Grow her plant collection with Bloomscape plants, a tropical terrarium, succulents, or simply a sustainably-sourced Bouqs bouquet.
