Mother’s Day is approaching quickly, but of course we all know that Mom deserves to be appreciated every day. Whether you’re celebrating your mom, a new mommother-in-lawgrandma or another mother figure in your life, it can be challenging to find a gift that’s worthy of how amazing she is. To help you out, we’ve gathered a selection of outstanding gifts that we’d give our own moms — and yours too.  

Since all moms are different, we’ve included a variety of gifts for mom that appeal to all sorts of interests. Could she use a little self-care and relaxation? How about a towel warmer that will turn an everyday bath experience into a spa retreat? Does she enjoy family gatherings in the backyard? A smokeless fire pit would fit the bill. And if you’re still not sure what to get her, don’t forget that you can never go wrong with flowers. Check out our list of the best online flower delivery services. We tested all the major national flower delivery services to find the freshest, most beautiful blooms to surprise her with.  


If she doesn’t have a silk pillowcase yet, she needs one. Silk pillowcases help reduce hair breakage and protect against “pillow face” morning puffiness. This 100% mulberry silk pillowcase from Zimasilk is a game-changer when it comes to your sleep routine. That’s why it’s our top pick for the best silk pillowcase of 2024


Whether your mom loves her glass of rosé or is guilty of putting an ice cube or two into her white wine, elevate her experience with the help of this wine glass chiller. It will keep her beverage crisp throughout the evening, and her wine will stay cold for up to an hour once she takes it out. Pair it with a wine club subscription for the ultimate gift.


Osea’s popular seaweed-based line is oh-so-soothing for dry skin and will make Mom feel like every day is a spa day. The set comes with four of Osea’s best-selling products in travel sizes, including Undaria Algae Body Oil, Salts of the Earth Body Scrub, Anti-Aging Body Balm and Undaria Algae Body Body, plus a handy travel bag.

The Kindle Paperwhite is CNET’s pick for the best all-around ebook reader for a reason. It features warm light settings and a longer battery life, and it’s completely waterproof. For a better viewing experience, this edition of the Kindle Paperwhite sports a 6.8-inch display, perfect for long flights. 


You don’t have to splurge on Le Creuset to buy Mom a Dutch oven that’s a true workhorse in the kitchen. This 6-quart enameled cast-iron Dutch oven from Lodge is as functional as it is eye-catching. We tried it out on everything from a long-cooked cassoulet to no-knead bread, and this versatile piece does it all. You can heat it up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and the enamel finish makes it incredibly easy to clean.

Coach purses are in demand, and if you can’t splash out on a larger design, why not opt for a crossbody bag? This little crossgrain leather bag will hold her phone, cash, lipstick and whatever else Mom doesn’t want floating around loose in her pockets while she runs errands. It comes in five colors and has a detachable strap so she can choose to wear it over her shoulder or carry it as a clutch.

More for the fashion-forward mom:


Yes, we all have too many reusable water bottles these days, but if Mom doesn’t yet have a Stanley, she’s missing out. This tumbler deserves all the hype. It fits perfectly into a car’s cup holder and keeps beverages cold or hot for hours. If “drink more water” is on her to-do list, she’ll absolutely love this on-the-go cup.

You know Mom needs peace and quiet to listen to her music and podcasts, and the Beats Studio Buds are just the ticket. These popular earbuds have active noise cancellation and are water resistant. There’s also a built-in microphone for calls.

Designed to help Mom delve into her own wisdom, this gratitude journal from Papier comes in a variety of designs and features insightful daily prompts. Every mom should enjoy some time for self-discovery, and this journal will give her a little nudge each day. Bonus: You can get it engraved with her name at no additional cost.

Sheets & Giggles

Made from eucalyptus, these super soft sheets from Sheets & Giggles will let her sleep comfortably, without building up body heat, slipping off the bed or coming up short under the chin. 

“I could live in these sheets,” says CNET’s Jessica Dolcourt, who bought and tested three other sheet sets before finding this lyocell set. They come in solids and stripes, ranging from gray and blue shades to deep purple.

Apple’s AirTags are the perfect gift for the practical mom who appreciates tech that will help her keep track of things. I like to throw one in my suitcase every time I go on a trip. I also keep one in my handbag, and I’ve got another attached to my son’s e-bike. You can even add Mom’s initials to make it a more personalized gift.

More for the practical mom:


If your mom loves to cook, a gorgeous Shun knife makes a fantastic, memorable gift. The traditional Japanese knife, available in a 6- or 8-inch blade, is practical enough for everyday use and it’s also beautiful, with a decorated blade that stands apart from typical workhorse knives. If you want to make it extra special, you can have it monogrammed for an extra $15.

More for coffee-loving mamas:


If your mom loves taking long, luxurious baths, transform her bathroom into a spa with the help of this towel warmer. It will get her bath sheets nice and toasty, and she can even throw in her pajamas and robes. Every evening will feel like a 5-star spa experience.

L.L. Bean

The ultimate cozy gift: slippers. We love L.L.Bean’s classic styles because they really hold up. Shoppers agree, year after year. A rep for the company tells us that last season, it sold a pair every minute. The Squam Lake style features a plush Australian lambswool interior and a rubber outsole for durability. These cozy slippers are also water- and stain-resistant.


How can Mom resist the chic packaging and lovely scents of a trio of high-quality candles? We love Voluspa for its sophisticated scents, including this set of three mini tins with fruity and citrusy notes: French Cade and Lavender, Goji and Tarocco Orange and Panjore Lychee. Each hand-poured 4-ounce soy candle comes in a gift-worthy decorative tin.

If Mom has a green thumb, or at least wants to have one, help her create a green haven in the home. The fiddle leaf fig is a popular choice and makes a unique gift. Opt for a medium (16- to 18-inch) or large (30- to 36-inch) plant. Prices start at $60 and go up to $158, depending on the size and style of planter you choose. 


This charming stand can hold a favorite cookbook or tablet, making it easier for Mom to follow new recipes. It can also help ward off dirty fingerprints on pages and screens. Plus, it will blend in with the rest of the kitchen decor when it’s not in use.
