17 Great Gifts for Moms

Mom life—there’s nothing quite like it. From tiny toes and baby snuggles to that unforgettable newborn smell, it can be a time filled with so many incredible things. But we’d be lying if we said it was easy. A mom can use all the help (and gifts, and coffee) they can get.

In addition to some tried-and-true favorites, like a home-cooked meal or an offer to hold the baby while mom showers or naps, we’ve rounded up a helpful selection of Mother’s Day gift ideas for a brand-new mom or a seasoned pro.

A shopping note: we realize that Mother’s Day shopping during social distancing looks a bit different this year than it has in the past. We’ve tried our best to choose gifts that will be available by Sunday, May 10, but be sure to pay attention to individual retailers’ shipping dates and delays when you’re ordering. And if you have your heart set on a gift but worry it won’t ship in time, we think mom will understand–just print out a photo of the gift and give that in the meantime!

Coffee, All the Coffee

According to most moms, you can never have too much coffee. This Nespresso model makes coffee, espresso, lattes and cappuccinos with the touch of one button, and the slim profile won’t take up a lot of counter space.

Mom Bling

This designer’s collection of mom-inspired jewelry is just right for adding a bit of sparkle to Mother’s Day–or any day, really.

Style for a Cause

One hundred percent of the profits from these modern, stylish totes go to Every Mother Counts, a nonprofit dedicated to making childbirth and pregnancy safe for every mother.

Foodie Favorite

Goldbelly brings gourmet food from some of your favorite restaurants and bakeries right to your door. (Yes, please.) From Magnolia Bakery’s world-famous banana pudding to Shake Shack burgers and so much more, there’s a food favorite for every mom here.

Get that Glow

If you’re a skincare-loving mama then this is the gift for you. This travel-size kit lets you try four of Tula’s best selling favorites to see what you love best.

Flower Power

Love fresh flowers but not the type to buy them for yourself? That’s exactly why this flower subscription makes the perfect Mother’s Day gift. You can choose weekly, biweekly, monthly or bimonthly deliver plans, ranging from $36-$60 per bouquet.

Tea Party

Personalized and just right for coffee, tea or any time you need to be reminded to sit down and relax for a few minutes.

Sweet Treats

Milk Bar makes some of our absolute favorite sweet treats—and this sampler pack lets you try a little bit of everything.

Fresh, Foolproof Herbs

You’re already taking care of a baby, so you don’t have to worry about taking care of the plants in this self-watering herb kit. You’ll have fresh herbs whenever you need them and these jars look great in any kitchen.

For Happy Hour

If mom loves wine, this wine club subscription takes the cake. (Or should we say the grapes.) It offers personalizable selections based on the flavor profiles you like and tons of award-winning wines.

Sweet and Sentimental

This sentimental keepsake collage deserves a spot on any shelf or wall. You can fill it with pregnancy pics, baby photos or a mix of both.

Self-Care

Moms don’t always have time to sneak away for self-care. This at-home mani kit includes everything mom needs to do her own nails right at home.

A Family Keepsake

StoryWorth makes preserving any family story easy. It prompts users with a weekly email question and then the company takes it from there, ending the year with a beautifully bound book of your family’s most treasured memories.

Practical Luxury

We love a practical splurge. (And so do most moms.) These silk pajamas are soft, beautiful and 100% machine washable.

Time Saver

Extra time is something that most moms don’t have a ton of. This all-in-one styling tool dryer gives you a salon-quality blowout (truly) without having to leave your bathroom. And it’s really easy to use.

Cool Style

Every mama needs a good pair of sneakers. These are comfy, can be dressed up or down and look good with just about anything.

Max Relaxation

Give mom an excuse for a long, hot, relaxing bath. Add some flowers, a book and maybe even a glass of wine for a few extra reasons to stay in the tub a little bit longer.
