There’s no one quite like your mom. We love moms who are inspiring, kind, loving, and are full of energy and enthusiasm. For those who have strong relationships with their mothers, it’s hard to imagine life without her. Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to thank her for all that she has done for you, and give her a gift that makes her feel appreciated. From self-care goodies to tech and more, here’s our guide to the best ideas. Best of all? They’re all available on Amazon — so you can get them to her doorstep (or yours) in a jiffy.
A candle that transports her
The past few years, our adventures abroad have been seriously curtailed. And if your mom has spent her life wearing out her passport, she’s probably felt restless. Even if you can’t afford to sweep her away to Scandinavia, you can make her home feel like a Nordic escape with this gorgeous, long-lasting candle. She’ll get 50 hours of burning time — which is more than enough time for her to plan her next big trip.
A digital frame that’ll make her tear-up
Your mom potentially has more photos stored on her phone than anyone else you know. And though she used to be great at printing and organizing physical copies, that’s not the case anymore. However, your mama wants to see all of her favorite people in her home, making this Aura digital frame the perfect sentiment. You can download the app for her and then show her how to upload unlimited photos that will slide show. As a bonus: you can add music or videos, too!
A gift she can pass down to you
When you visit your family’s home, does your mom try to have all of your favorite things ready to eat? If you can’t get enough of Chef Mama’s culinary masterpieces, this gorgeous recipe tin from Rifle Paper Co. is a thoughtful sentiment. Make sure to write a card about how much her cooking means to you and how you want to make sure you always have a record of her creations. It can be passed down for generations to come!
A way for her to have a daily blowout
A daily salon visit isn’t a financial reality — but some gadgets that offer camera-ready locks can be the gift that just keeps on giving. Start with this Luesta Beauty set that includes shampoo, conditioner, leave-cream and a reusable shower camp. The ingredients help to strengthen strands while also adding volume and shine. When it’s time to blow-dry, encourage her to throw out that dryer she’s had for ten years and try this brush instead. Created by Drybar, it cuts down on drying time and allows her to add waves without a curling iron. Win-win!
A way to inspire the new mom
In addition to gifting your mom, you might also consider extending the love to your friends or family members who recently took on the title of parent. For the new mom who is always looking for creative ways to care for her baby’s development, this baby food maker from BEABA is pretty amazing. It steams, cooks, purees and blends meats, vegetables and fruits in 15 minutes or less. Plus, it can also be used for mom-and-dad’s meals to whip up soups, hard-boiled eggs, and more.
An easy way to transport her morning coffee
How many items are on your mom’s to-do list lately? We bet she’s pretty busy running all over town (possibly all over the country!) To help motivate her through her to-do list, this all-around tumbler from Hydro Flask will keep her caffeinated. Available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, choose the one that fits her energy needs. It’ll keep iced coffee chilly and hot tea steaming all day long.
A healing gift for the mom-to-be
If your bestie is about to have a baby, she’s having all of the feels: excitement, anticipation, fear, worry, you name it. Though you’ve given her cute onesies and swaddles for the wee one, what she actually needs is postpartum care… for down there. For a gift she will forever thank you for, consider this postpartum essentials kit from Frida Mom. It includes tons of must-have products to soothe and heal the perineal area, as well as disposable underwear and more. It might not be the flashiest of gifts — but trust us, it will be needed and appreciated.
A cozy addition to Netflix binging
After a long career working and taking care of kids, your mom is getting closer to retirement and spending more time relaxing than hustling. She’s always asking you for new Netflix show recommendations, so in addition to giving her your best picks, give her this heated neck wrap from Ostrichpillow. It’s filled with clay beads that retain heat and add weight to pressure sore shoulders and necks. (Psst: maybe buy two so you can binge-watch something together in comfort?)
An upgrade to the purse she’s had forever
You love your mom — but her style? She could use a few upgrades, particularly where her purse is concerned. This best-selling vegan leather bucket bag will ‘wow’ her — and it’s super-chic for all of her adventures, errand running, and more.
An upgrade to her bathtime essentials
When it comes to your love of baths, you get it from your mama — only now you’re the one encouraging her to take more time for herself. This luxury bath and body oil gift set is made with 100% essential oils and features the scents of peppermint, lavender, tea tree, patchouli, ylang-ylang, chamomile, basil, cinnamon, geranium, pine, cypress, wintergreen, spearmint, cedarwood, sage, thyme and more.
