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 gift I ever received, and despite the struggles, doubt and frustration that come with motherhood, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Here’s a photo of my family at a Philadelphia Eagles game!

Receiving the title of “Mom” was enough of a gift for me. But my family has always liked 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!

Here’s a photo of me and my mom!

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 8, 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.

Find the water bottle HERE.

Whether she likes to work out or she simply wants to stay hydrated, Mom is sure to enjoy this Takeya Stainless Steel Water Bottle.

It can keep cold drinks cool for over 24 hours. Plus, it comes in multiple colors!

Find the coffee maker HERE.

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.

Find the wine opener HERE.

Did someone say 5 O’clock?

Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter what time she wants to enjoy some wine, but this Rabbit Pro Automatic Wine Opener will make pouring a glass so much easier.

Find Silvadore HERE.

And if she doesn’t drink the whole bottle, she can keep her wine fresh for over 2 weeks with a set of Silvadore wine preservers.

Find the “Home” candles HERE.

And while she’s enjoying some wine or simply unwinding, help her relax with a set of the Just Jill “Home” Candles.

The scent is SO fresh and it’s made with 100 percent soy wax.

Find the candles HERE.

Does she want a seasonal scent? We have a variety of candles that are perfect for spring and summer.

Each candle will burn for approximately 75 hours!

Find the melts HERE.

Our newest addition to the Just Jill fragrance collection… wax melts!

Great for areas where candles aren’t allowed (like a communal living home or dorn), or great for those with pets.

Find the wax warmer HERE.

Remember, you’ll need a warmer like this one if you want to safely melt your wax chips.

It’s easy to use and it doubles as decor!

Find the vacuum HERE.

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.

Find the throw HERE.

Movie nights with the family wouldn’t be the same without some blankets!

But if Mom’s go-to is looking a little ragged, it might be a good idea to gift her this Just Jill cotton woven throw.

Find the throw HERE.

And if you’re looking for one that’s extra plush and cozy, you can’t go wrong with a Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw. It’s one of my favs!

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!

Find the slippers HERE.

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.

Find the cardigans HERE.

Barefoot Dreams is also great for loungewear. And they have so many comfortable styles to choose from!

They’re versatile and Mom can wear them around the home or out and about.

Does she need a little accessory upgrade? Jewelry is always a good idea! This Satya Jewelry heart pendant is plated in 18-karat gold but it also comes plated in sterling silver.

Find the paperclip necklace HERE.

If she prefers something that can be worn with anything (and I really mean anything), turn your attention toward this paperclip necklace. Great for layering!

Find the wallet HERE.

A good wallet is a must if Mom wants to keep everything in order. I adore the simplicity of this Kate Spade wallet… plus, it opens up to feature multiple spaces for cards!

Find the HydroBag HERE.

When it comes to bags, I can’t recommend WanderFull enough. This HydroBag looks stylish, holds basic essentials AND keeps you hydrated. It holds up to a 32-ounce water bottle!

(Find all WanderFull bags HERE.)

Find PowerBeads HERE.

So many of you are fans of PowerBeads by jen bracelets. And if you love them, Mom is sure to love them too! Each piece is meaningful and they’re great for stacking. I wear one every day!

Find the collection HERE.

Our My Saint My Hero collection is filled with new items and bestsellers. This bracelet is top-rated and so inspiring.

If she’s in need of a new pair of earrings, these Twisted Hoops are sure to put a smile on her face! You can get them in an 18K yellow gold-plated option, an 18K rose gold-plated option, and plated in rhodium.

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!

Going to get a regular pedicure isn’t always practical or affordable. Luckily Mom doesn’t have to leave home to feel pampered thanks to this HoMedics Shower Bliss Foot Spa!

Find the socks HERE.

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…

Since we’re on the topic of relaxation, I thought I’d show you these Kc Essentials whipped soap scrubs which are both nourishing and pampering!
