Even though you don't really need an excuse to honor the women and mothers in your life, Mother's Day is a great calendar-sanctioned reminder to do both. And while it's never a good look to be empty-handed for a holiday or celebration, for Mother's Day, being prepared with a thoughtful present to shower someone you care about with love can be extra tough.

Perhaps this is because shopping for a mama is not a one-gift-fits-all situation. Yours might be a CrossFit queen, your S.O.'s might be a master baker, and your grandmother might essentially be the hundred-year-old yogi…so what do you get for each VIP in your life?

Well, not to worry, you thoughtful gift-giver, you: No matter what kind of mom you're shopping for this year, the following foolproof gift guide has you covered.

Find the perfect Mother's Day gift for every kind of mama.
