Running kids around from one little league game to the next. Preparing lunch with a heartfelt note. Writing a list of chores—only for them to be brushed aside. Holding a teenager as they experience heartbreak for the first time.
If any of this sounds familiar, you’re probably a mom.
Becoming a mom was the best gifts I ever received, and despite the struggles, doubt and frustration that come with motherhood, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Receiving the title of “Mom” was enough of a gift for me, but my family has always likes to make Mother’s Day feel extra special. From homemade meals to outings in the city, they really go above and beyond to show they care.
I’m sure lots of you feel the same, but if your family insists on getting you a little gift—or if you’re the gift giver, trying to get a great gift for your mother—I have a few ideas that you can check out. I know I always loved giving my mom a sweet gift!
Below, you’ll see some Mother’s Day gifts that are sure to bring a smile to her face. There are some style options (like cozy cardigans!), some household items and some spa essentials for the mom who needs a little relaxing.
Just remember, Mother’s Day is on MAY 9, which means it’s approaching fast!

Mother’s Day Gifts For The Home and Kitchen
Is Mom a chef? Or maybe someone who takes a lot of pride in her household? Then I’m sure she’ll love these gifts.
Whether she likes to work out or she simply wants to stay hydrated, Mom is sure to enjoy this Takeya Stainless Steel Travel Mug. It can keep hot drinks warm for up to 12 hours, and cold drinks cool for up to 24 hours. Plus, it comes in eight adorable colors!
I’ve never been a huge coffee person, but I know women who can’t function without a regular cup (or two) in the morning!
If you know someone like that, they’re going to love this Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Maker. It has a one-touch operation, and it can make two cup sizes—one for coffee and one for espresso.
Did someone say 5 O’clock? Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter what time she wants to enjoy some wine, but this Brookstone Automatic Wine Opener will make pouring a glass so much easier.
If mom’s not much of a candle gal, she can still enjoy sweet home scents with this AmbiEscents Vine Mosaic Accent Warmer. It’s easy to use and it doubles as decor!
This EyeVac Home Touchless Sensor Activated Vacuum is a neat little gadget that will make her household chores even easier. Simply sweet dust and dirt in front of the vacuum, and the sensor will trigger it to suck up all of that debris.
Movie nights with the family wouldn’t be the same without some cozy blankets! But if Mom’s go-to blanket is looking a little ragged, it might be a good idea to gift her this Berkshire Super Oversized Throw.
Style Favorites For Mother’s Day
Keep Mom feeling stylish in these must-have essentials. I discovered some accessories, purses, clothing and shoes. I hope you find something worth checking out!
My mom always tells me her feet are cold… no matter the season! That’s why I have my eyes on these Dearfoams Fireside Slippers.
They’re great for the house, but they have a hard sole bottom which means she can easily run to the mailbox without having to change into another pair of shoes.
The Cuddl Duds brand is one of my favorite loungewear brands on the market. While they have everything from pajamas to slippers, I wanted to show you this Sherpa Cardigan Robe.
The best part is that it’s super versatile, meaning she can wear it around the home or out-and-about!
A good wallet is a must if Mom wants to keep everything in order. I adore the color of this Michael Kors Pebbled Leather Wristlet… plus, it opens up to feature an ID slot and multiple spaces for cards!
When it comes to quality bags, Dooney and Bourke never disappoints. Their bags always seem to hold up well over the years and I love that they have a timeless style.
I wanted to show you this Pebble Leather Crossbody not only because it’s versatile, but because it’s currently 30% off!
Beauty and Spa Items For Mom
Give mom a relaxing day at home with these calming spa gifts. I also added some beauty finds to make her feel extra pretty!
Salons are still getting back to “normal” where I live, which can make going in for a pedicure less than relaxing. Luckily Mom doesn’t have to leave home to feel pampered thanks to this HoMedics Shower Bliss Foot Spa!
Two words: fuzzy socks. Everyone loves them so there’s really no going wrong with this gift. I found this Earth Therapeutics 2-Pack which comes with plush, aloe-infused socks. I might even buy a couple of pairs for myself…
If you’re feeling like splurging a bit, I recommend this J’adore Eu de Parfum Gift Set. This scent is a classic—it’s been around for years and it will stick around for years to come. I also love that it comes with a little travel-size bottle!
You all know about my love for Philosophy. I’ve owned some of their products for over a decade! This year, you can get Mom this Super-Size Body Spritz and Lotion Duo as one of her Mother’s Day gifts.
It comes with two large body lotions, and a body spritz (that if you ask me, can also be used as a room freshener!)
Other Gifts For Mother’s Day
Here are some additional Mother’s Day gifts you can give mom on May 9.
If you’d like to add a personal touch to Mother’s Day this year, you can get her a sweet gift from Snapfish. They offer so many options for you to customize gifts like photo books, mugs and more.
How sweet is this Mother’s Memory Journal? It allows her to write down all of her favorite memories of motherhood, her family and more.
If the lighting isn’t right, getting a perfect makeup look is much more difficult! That’s why this iHome Makeup Vanity Mirror makes a great gift for Mom.
Despite the dreary weather or the busted lightbulb, she’ll be able to see clearly thanks to the LED bulbs on this mirror.
This Sol Drinkware Collection is made specifically for outdoor dining—a perfect option for the mom who likes entertaining on the patio!
The set includes six glasses, each shaped to highlight the flavor profiles of different types of wine.
I hope one of these gifts will put a smile on Mom’s face. And if you’re looking for something extra special, tune into my Facebook Live later this evening where I’ll be talking about some special gifts you can get from the Just Jill Shop.
