The Best Gifts for Moms

Mothers deserve to be celebrated each and every day. Although you don’t need a special day to show appreciation, holidays present the perfect opportunity. It can be tempting to get them something on or off the registry that’s related to the baby, but do take a moment to give something that’s just for mom (P.S. the same goes for gifts for dads!). When shopping for gifts for new moms, keep their rest and recovery in mind. For the seasoned moms, mothers-in-law and grandmothers in your life, self-care and sentimental gifts are always a good idea.

From a vibrant bouquet of flowers and self-care essentials to personalized items and activities that’ll spark creativity, here are our favorite thoughtful gifts for every kind of mother.
