Mother's Day is around the corner, yet again, and in case you're scratching your head and wondering what to buy this year, fear not. Whether your mom is into beauty, style, fitness, or just chilling at home, we've got you covered with Mother's Day gift ideas that won't disappoint.

When buying a gift for your mom, you not only want to consider all the things that she does in her life ATM, but all of the ways that her life could be bettered by finding the right pair of PJs, the softest robe that's ever graced her skin, a plant to take care of that reminds her of you, or a beauty product that brings on some serious joy after a year that's largely been devoid of it.

So give it a think and while you're pondering what gift feels right for mom, keep on scrolling for some smart ideas and places to start. Seriously, you got this.

If your mom is into style

Lunya Washable Silk Button Down Pant Set — $258.00

This silk set can be thrown into the washing machine after wearing it. While that perk in and of itself is worthy of an ‘Add To Cart’, we’d like to add that Lunya silk is truly some of the softest and most wearable that we’ve tried.

Left on Friday Sports and Rec Sweatshirt — $120.00

This airy sweater with cropped sleeves is the answer to the question: What should I wear today? Because whether you’re on working up a sweat, whether you’re running errands, whether you’re sitting on the couch, whether you’re going out with the family to the park, or whether you’re doing literally anything else, there is nothing more comfortable and cute that Left on Friday’s do-it-all throw on. Plus, it comes in a rainbow of hues.

UGG Cream Duffield II Pocketed Robe — $128.00

A pocketed robe is the best way to carry snacks to the couch, full stop.

If your mom is into beauty

Dr. Loretta Concentrated Firming Serum — $80.00

Dr. Loretta’s seriously potent skin care is one of the best buys you can make. We like this concentrated firming serum because it has derm-approved retinol in it, which can help with cell turn over, brighten skin, and turn on the collagen pumps so that your complexion feels plumper.

Away Large Toiletry Bag — $75.00

Maybe your mom is about to butterfly out of her COVID cocoon and the only thing holding her back is her ratty old makeup bag. Don’t hold her back, buy her this handsome kit from Away.

Necessaire The Body Essentials in Eucalyptus — $131.00

Buff, wash, hydrate, on repeat, dermatologists will tell you. There’s no simpler or better smelling option to do so than this eucalyptus-scented pick from the brand that puts body care first.

Shocks of Love Tender Loving Care Vitality Scent Ritual — $65.00

Perfume is a win for moms. This one will help you to breathe in the TLC that mom showed you all those years growing up.

Dyson Air Wrap Set — $549.00

If your mom has been talking about how she misses her blow-out since March 2020, this stellar buy is so good that it’s continually a sell-out item atop beauty editors wish lists. Fix your mom’s problems. She’s probably fixed yours once or twice.

Esker Body Plane — $45.00

If your mom makes you watch pimple popping videos and is into that whole oddly satisfying subsect of beauty, this skin planing tool removes dead skin cells post-shower and leaves you with the evidence of it (dead skin literally piles up + super soft skin).

Bathing Culture — $75.00

This rainbow towel feels like a sunshiney way to start or end your day. Your mom will remember you’re her bright spot.

If your mom is into staying home

Sandoval Peace Interior Aromatic Room Spray — $46.00

True story: I went home and brought this room spray because I have a puppy who sometimes smells like…a puppy. My mom liked it so much she stole it from me, so Happy Mother’s Day in advance, mom!

Click & Grow The Smart Garden — $100.00

Moms are always seemingly out of herbs (if my last-minute trips to the shopping market have taught me anything) so why not save yourself the gas money and go ahead and buy mom this countertop basil kit.

Vitruvi Stone Diffuser — $98.00

Stone diffusers that are this beautiful should be given as regular gifts, IMO. This Vitruvi pick comes in many different colors and there are now even cordless options, so give it some serious consideration in your shopping this year.

ZZ Plant — $9.00

Buy a plant. Put it in a pot. You’re set.

Diptyque City Candles — $76.00

Most moms likely haven’t been traveling during the pandemic, so Diptyque’s City candle collection is a thoughtful way to transport her to her favorite place. This New York option smells of a generous medley of cedar wood, patchouli, and vetiver, which is much better than what New York actually smells like.

Bed Threads Sheets Set — $230.00

There is nothing more luxurious to buy your mom than a pair of these sheets which come in every hue of the rainbow. She’ll be swimming in French linen and you will officially be the favorite child.

If your mom is into fitness

Myx Plus — $1,499.00

This Myx bike is one of the best ways to train because it takes your personal biometrics into account to tell you how hard to push or pull-back. It’s a win for mom and you can hop on it too, probably, so the gift that keeps on giving.

The DB Method — $229.00

Kim Kardashian bought this machine as a Christmas gift for her whole family and while that might not be something you do, you can at least buy one for mom.

JaxJox Kettlebell Connect — $200.00

This sleek kettle bell adjusts depending on how much weight you want on it, so your mom can have a kettle bell that’s 10 pounds or one that’s 50 pounds, all in one spot.

Bala Power Ring — $85.00

This sleek Bala Power Ring is an easy way to train and can be used in different modalities, depending on what your mom wants to do on a given day.
