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 Mother's Day gift ideas and places to start. Seriously, you got this.

If your mom is into style

Lunya Washable Silk Button Down Pant Set — $278.00

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.

Aviator Nation Hi-Rise Denim Shorts — $250.00

Finally: A ‘mom short’ that’s anything butt. (!) This brand new line of Italian denim shorts from cool girl fave Aviator Nation is handmade in Los Angeles. Think of these cute cutoffs as the perfect warm weather bridge between jeans and sweats. (Seriously, they’re that soft.)

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.

AO Eyewear The Whitney Sunglasses — $200.00

IYKYK: AO Eyewear is America’s oldest optical company (established in 1833!), and every single one of their pieces of eyewear is high-quality and timeless—just like mother dearest. AO’s Whitney glasses have a chic soft-but-angular shape that looks flattering on every sun-soaked face. The most important part? The Whitney’s AOLite nylon lenses, which feature 100 percent UVA/UVB protection.

Vuori Sedona V-Neck — $98.00

We considered gatekeeping this one, but it’s too good not to share. Run—or power walk, skip, sprint, drive, galavant, and otherwise frickin’ race—to snag your mom a Sedona V-Neck before the rest of the universe discovers this utterly perfect chic-and-cozy French terry sweatshirt. Better yet, buy two…or seven.

Municipal Staple Legging — $88.00

These mid-rise leggings are all about the extra: Extra comfort, extra strength, and extra stylish for creating those do-it-all outfits mother dearest loves to live in. Functionality is the name of the game when it comes to Municipal’s gear: from the elastic-free waistband that’s smooth rather than constrictive to the soft knit fabric that gives super opaque coverage.

Boohoo Pantone Boxer-Jogger Shorts — $22.00

Your mom will love snuggling up in anything from this limited edition Mental Health Awareness Month-themed line from Boohoo in collaboration with Pantone: The collection collection combines vibrant, mood enhancing colors with purposeful product design. Plus, cozy summertime shorts with deep pockets are 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 cozy home cocoon (we get it) 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 Ritual in Eucalyptus — $40.00

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.

Cosmedix Opti Crystal Eye Serum — $95.00

She works hard, and so should her go-to skincare products. This luxurious eye serum is specially formulated with powerhouse ingredients to radically reduce the look of dark circles and improve the look of fine lines around the eyes.

If your mom is into staying home

Grounds & Hounds Glazed Donut Blend — $15.00

Who needs to schlep out to the coffee shop twice a day when you can make a top-notch brew in the comfort of your own kitchen? Thanks to Grounds & Hounds, your mother is about to level-up her DIY cafe au lait game like never before. (BTW, 20 percent of all Grounds & Hounds profits help fund rescue initiatives—so whether she’s a dog mom or not, even better.)

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 — $140.00

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 — $123.00

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.

Diptyque City Candles — $76.00

Diptyque’s City candle collection is a thoughtful way to transport your mother to her favorite place, wherever that may be (…Paris?). 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 — $250.00

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.

Argaux Shades of Rosé 3-Pack Sampler — $75.00

She’s going to need something to sip when she slips into her comfy robe and slippers. And seeing as summer is right around the corner, that means one thing: the launch of rosé season. This gift box includes three delicious blush-toned bottles: a 2020 Chateau de Montfrin Paumiste, a 2020 Chateau Barbebelle Cuvee Madeleine Rosé, and a 2021 Origin Syrah Rosé.


The Joule Oven Air Fryer Pro — $550.00

This sleek countertop appliance does the job of mom’s convection oven, air fryer, slow cooker, dehydrator, toaster, grill, and pizza oven. Better yet, when she downloads the Joule app, she’ll see all of the guesswork is taken out with the step-by-step video guidance.

If your mom is into fitness

Myx Plus — $1,599.00

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 — $329.00

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 — $250.00

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.

Sticky Be Socks 2023 Colorful Mantra Gift Pack — $94.00

These cozy grip socks are the perfect gift for any mother that loves yoga or pilates. The natural fine cotton yarn they’re made from is as cozy and breathable as it is excellent at absorbing sweat that could cause mid-stretch slipping. They’re also decked out with elastic arch support for compression and functionality, have padded foot beds for extra cushion and comfort, and they’re machine washable.

Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Bag — $200.00

Your mom’s a powerhouse, and her gym bag should match that vibe (…or at least try). For the ultimate do-it-all duffel, look no further than Dagne Dover’s chic carryall bags. They’re big enough to hold her workout clothes, laptop, change of shoes, weekend getaway gear—you name it—and won’t cause an ounce of that shoulder pain that so many shoulder bags are prone to.
