Moms are real life superheroes. They’re always doing the most for everyone else, without asking for a thing in return. So… how do you shop for the person who deserves the most, but wants nothing?!

If you’re starting to panic as you shop for Mother’s Day, take a breath. I’ve got you! Gift giving is my love language, so I put together a list of gifts for mom that will help you find the PERFECT thing for the mom in your life.

1. Voluspa Candle

$34 at Anthropologie

I personally think you can’t go wrong with a candle – and this one is nice enough to make your mom feel extra special. The ornate detailing on the jar, the special lux packaging – it certainly feels like a gift but it won’t break the bank. My mom keeps this on her counter only burning on special occasions, savoring it for as long as she can.

BONUS: Anthropologie will gift wrap it and send a card! (For a fee of course).

2. Ninja Creami

For the mom with a sweet tooth. You can’t go wrong with this TikTok viral kitchen gadget! With a few simple ingredients (or as many mix-ins as she desires) and a push of a button, your mom can homemade soft serve ice cream.

3. POPFLEX Cora Backpack

POPFLEX Cora Backpack Rose

$165 at POPFLEX

For the mom of littles, or the mom who is always on the go! Or honestly…for anyone. I have one and I love it so much.

The Cora Backpack has pockets for ALL of the essentials, including a fully lined shoe compartment and a yoga mat strap. This bag makes an amazing diaper bag, weekend errand bag, or carry on bag.

4. Kendra Scott Friendship Bracelet

$70 at Kendra Scott

I was looking for something dainty, but sturdy to add to my mom’s collection. She has these cute sparkly hoops she loves – cue a sparkly bracelet.

This one is nice enough to feel like a forever piece, but not so expensive like a finer piece. The adjustable band is perfect for my mom who often finds bangles too big.

PLUS – how cute is it that this is called a friendship bracelet? My mom has certainly become one of my best friends as I approach 30!

5. Salad Freak Cookbook

$20 at Amazon

My stunning sister mentioned to me a few months postpartum, that she and her husband were trying to incorporate more salads into their diets. I said – I’ve got just the thing for THAT!

This book is such a beautiful book we both keep it visible in our kitchens. It has wonderful inspo for spicing up your salads and experimenting with seasonal flavors. The ingredient lists can be hefty and pricey – but great inspiration. The recipes still work, even if you leave out half of the ingredients like I do.

This is perfect for the mom who loves to spend time experimenting in the kitchen, especially with seasonal salads.

6. Countertop Towel Warmer

$70 on Amazon

Is your mom perpetually COLD? Maybe she lives in a cold place? What about a countertop towel warmer to turn those omg “why did I get out” moments into “wrapped in a warm hug” moments.

This one is just a jumping off point – there are many different towel warmers out there! Or maybe she would prefer a heated blanket?   

7. Blogilates Stainless Steel 62 oz Bottle

Give the gift of ice cold water that she can carry with her at all times! This bottle is not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional too. It keeps drinks cold for hours, has a built-in handle for easy carrying, and best of all – keeps mom hydrated! She’ll wonder how she ever left the house without it.

8. BARE Botanics Coffee Scrub

$27 on Amazon

I recently gifted this to a mom-to-be (and I got one for myself because it’s so good)!

Everyone appreciates a little moment in the day to pamper themselves! This body scrub has amazing reviews and I can confirm from experience that it leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated. The seller is also a small business – they sent a thank you note in the package which I adored.

On top of that, the box came so cutely wrapped in craft paper, tied with a twine bow making this really feel like a gifting experience, even though you can just 2-day it right off prime.

9. Hair Mask and Massager

Scalp Mask -$32 Scalp Massager – $7

This combo is for anyone whose hair/scalp needs a little TLC – Looking out for those new moms! My college BFF recently had a baby and this was the perfect little pick-me-up to send her as she was adjusting to her new normal. She loved it!

10. Wine Glasses

$56 at Target

Moms are notorious for hanging onto the same glassware for decades. It probably has to do with being so busy and the whole not ever buying anything for herself thing. I say it’s time to give her an upgrade.

These glasses are technically for wine, but they work just as well for non-alcoholic drinks. Aren’t they cute?! They’re made with beautiful crystal, but they’re also dishwasher safe (v important).

11. Nespresso Vertuo POP+

$129 at Nespresso

For the coffee lover in your life.

We all dream of aesthetic lattes made with strong espresso (make that a double if you’re a mom). Nespresso makes it possible to craft your own espresso bevvies at home without dealing with an expensive and technical espresso machine.

The newest Nespresso model is compact and CUTE. You can pick her favorite color and avoid taking up precious counter space.

12. A Super Thick Yoga Mat

$79 at POPFLEX

For the active mom who needs a little extra cushion for her joints, or the one who’s been using the same yoga mat since 2003. Time for an upgrade! The CloudCushion mat is extra thick – 0.5″ to be exact! It’s made with super grippy vegan suede and a super cute pattern.

Happy Mother’s Day shopping!
