Seeing as Mother’s Day is coming up so soon, it’s time to start shopping. Maybe you’re getting something for your own mom, or your partner, or just a close friend who just had a baby last winter. Whoever you’re shopping for, your mother’s day gift will be perfect. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

So, keep reading for my ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Mom You Know

1. Something Cozy

Being a mom is stressful, so a gift that promotes relaxation is a safe bet. A soft, cozy throw blanket, fuzzy socks, or a pair of slippers.


2. Something for the Bath

There’s nothing quite as relaxing as taking a nice bath. A Mother’s Day gift for the bath would be perfect. Some luxurious bubble bath, bath salts, or bath bombs work well. Or, try bath accessories, like a bath pillow or a wine glass holder.


3. Something for Sleep

There are plenty of gift ideas to promote good sleep. Pajama’s, essential oils, or a silk eye mask is a good bet. Also good would be a sound machine or fancy alarm clock, like this one.


4. Something to Read

If the mom you’re shopping for is a big reader, there are a lot of good books to choose from. After all, you can never have too many books.

5. Something for the Kitchen

It’s kind of a cliché to get a kitchen appliance as a Mother’s Day gift. So, instead of something like a crock-pot, you could try something more unique like a display tray or a coffee cup holder.


6. Something for the Home

A Mother’s Day gift for the home could include a nice throw pillow, artwork, or some other type of décor. An essential oil diffuser or a candle would also be a good idea.


7. Something Sentimental

Sentimental gifts are practically made for Mother’s Day. Some of my favorite gifts have been homemade and created with love. You could also try a nice piece of jewelry, like this necklace showing a mama bird and her nest. Alternatively, a mother-child figurine would be sweet.


8. Something Stylish

Not every gift has to be practical. Sometimes, it can just be pretty and fun. Get her something she can wear, like a spring jacket, a sundress, or some stylish sandals. And women always love purses and sunglasses.


9. Something for Beauty

Beauty products can be another good choice. Skincare creams, makeup, or, if you want to splurge, you could go for a device like a solar-wand.


10. Something for Wellness

Finally, anything for health and wellness would make a perfect gift. You can go with some lounge-wear or yoga pants, a fitness tracker, or a gym bag. Something like a neck wrap, foot warmer, or a gift card for a professional massage would also be perfect.

      Lol – fair enough, but if you have pets then I think being a dog/cat-mom counts!
