Baggallini Central Park Sling

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (2)

The Baggallini Central Park Sling stands out on our list because it’s lightweight, stylish, and versatile. One of our writers received a sample of the bag from the brand and uses it daily to hold her wallet, chapstick, and other necessities, thanks to multiple pockets and compartments. It comes in several colors and styles, like black quilt, metallic, and red buffalo plaid, and features an adjustable strap for a comfortable fit.

If Mom needs a little more space for her goodies, check out the Baggallini Sling.

Nashelle Crescent Moon Necklace

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (3)

The Nashelle Crescent Moon Necklace is simple to wear daily, but you can also dress it up. Plus, if your mom has ever told you that she loves you “to the moon and back,” then this is the necklace for her. The 18-inch chain has a crescent moon charm and is available in either silver or gold.

EQY 32-Ounce Water Bottle with Time Marker

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (4)

This reusable water bottle holds up to 32 ounces and features handy time markers to track Mom’s daily water consumption. The translucent design means there’s no guessing on when it’s time to refill, while the leakproof locking lid opens with the simple push of a button. There’s even a carrying strap, so it can join Mom anywhere she goes throughout the day.

Pair Eyewear Gift Card

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (5)

Pair Eyewear is changing the glasses game (just ask our writer who’s obsessed with the pairs and top frames the brand sent her family). Here’s how it works: Choose a base frame and then shop from hundreds of top frames that magnetically attach to the base frame—it’s like a whole new pair of glasses without purchasing an entirely new set.

Mom can use the company’s “virtual try-on” to find the style she likes best before purchasing. Top frames range from sunglasses and classic colors to fun themes and collabs, like Halloween or Harry Potter. Give Mom a gift card to Pair so she can select her favorite styles, and leave a little customized note to tell her she deserves it.

For the bubble bath enthusiast, a tub tray is the ultimate gift. This caddy tray is made from bamboo and has a protective coat to keep it in good condition, even if it gets wet. You can extend the tray to fit the width of your bathtub, and it has silicone along the bottom to keep it from slipping. It has space for everything Mom could want—including a book, wine glass, candle, and towel.

Cabeau Evolution Earth Neck Pillow

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (7)

Whether Mom travels for work or family vacations, she won’t go anywhere without the Cabeau Evolution Earth Neck Pillow. The brand sent one of our writers a sample of the pillow and confirms the company’s promise of a customizable fit, great support, and easy cleaning. The fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles, but you’d never know because of how buttery-soft it feels. Plus, the soft cover is removable for easy cleaning.

We appreciate the open neck design and raised side supports that allow for a comfortable fit. The chinstrap keeps heads secure and mouths closed while sleeping and matches each color option available.

Otherland Candle Bundles

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (8)

Candles are always a great go-to gift for moms because the options are endless. If you want to try something different, check out this set from Otherland. There are more than a dozen scent options, like fruity or pumpkin spice, and they come in a three-, six-, or nine-pack.

CaitlynMinimalist Double Name Ring

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (9)

If she likes minimalist jewelry, this customized ring is a great gift option. It’s dainty, and it can be personalized with any two names in gold, silver, or rose gold. Since they’re made to order, you’ll want to order her ring a little early to make sure it’s ready in time.

The 60 Best Gifts to Buy Expecting Moms of 2024

Cozy Earth Linen Bamboo Box Quilt

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (10)

The Cozy Earth Linen Bamboo Box Quilt is a gift Mom will happily use on her own bed. We received a sample of the quilt from the brand and enjoyed the softness of the bamboo viscose and French flax linen. This quilt is surprisingly lightweight yet provides plenty of warmth without overheating, making it great for year-round use.

Each color option—light gray, charcoal, natural, and white—features the same elegant box detailing, and the quilt comes in twin, queen, or king sizes. You can even pair it with the matching shams to gift Mom new bedding for any occasion. The quilt is machine washable in cool water using mild soap and is safe to toss in the dryer on low heat with wool dryer balls.

Cozy Earth offers a 10-year warranty for defects, free shipping, and a 100-night trial. If Mom doesn’t love it, you can return it within 100 days with free return shipping (U.S. only), and the company will issue you a refund.An added bonus? Cozy Earth sends the quilt in a beautiful and reusable bag.

Catstudio Georgia Dish & Hand Towel

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (11)

This dish and hand towel measuring 20 x 29 inches will wow Mom with its intricate details that are handmade. From the handmade-embroidered border to the hand-loomed cotton, this towel celebrates Georgia, the peach state. Of course, if the mother in your life doesn't have a connection to Georgia, Catstudio offers other similar items to match her alma mater or hometown.

Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (12)

Mom can say goodbye to cold coffee with this coffee mug that's temperature controlled via her phone. Pick the drink's temperature, 120 degrees Fahrenheit to 145 degrees Fahrenheit, and keep it hot for up to 1.5 hours using the mug's app. After two hours of inactivity or when the mug is empty, it will shut off until it senses liquid or movement inside.

This pillowcase is worth the investment because it’s good for the hair and skin. The silk soaks up fewer oils and moisture than a traditional pillowcase (so her expensive lotion and serums won’t go to waste), and because of its slippery surface, it leaves hair less tangled and matted in the morning. Most importantly, it feels good on the skin, making for a cozy night’s rest.

The 18 Best Baby Baptism Gifts to Commemorate the Special Day

A Shop of Things Cool Mom Keychain

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (14)

Remind Mom of how cool she is each time she reaches for her keys with this adorable keychain. It measures 3.5 inches with a 1.5-inch key ring to fit on her current set. It's budget-friendly, cute, and a sweet little reminder of how you really feel.

Maybe Mom wants to listen to her podcast, or maybe she wants to block out the sound of whining. Either way, she can do it with AirPods, because they’re noise-canceling, and they connect through Bluetooth, so she won’t have to be tethered to her phone to use them.

The Best Kids' Headphones That Always Hit the Right Note

Uncommon Goods Springtime Paint-by-Number Kit

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (16)

If Mom is creative but also exhausted, a paint-by-numbers kit will let her do what she loves without requiring too much brainpower. There are three printed canvas options for you to choose from—poppies, succulent, or cherry blossom branch.

Each kit comes with the canvas, paintbrushes, and acrylic paint. The kit takes between three and five hours to complete but is also a project she can work on in multiple settings as time allows.

Bean Box Gourmet Coffee Sampler

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (17)

Mom's mornings just got a whole lot better, thanks to this coffee sampler box that features a variety of coffee blends. Each box contains almost half a pound of coffee beans that are freshly roasted, a sweet treat, and more. With four different options, she will love this as a gift, no matter what holiday you're celebrating.

Getting ready just got a whole lot easier thanks to this straightener's unique design. It's a brush and straightener combined that has a 9-foot cord, automatic safety shut-off, and digital temperature control. The brush can reach a maximum of 450 degrees Fahrenheit and leaves behind smooth, frizz-free hair.

Flowly Relaxation Training

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (19)

Flowly is an unexpected and unique gift moms won’t see coming (but will appreciate greatly). From breathing exercises, group sessions, and learning more about your nervous system, Flowly is a platform that allows you to focus on your health—all through the easy access of your phone, either with the virtual reality headset that takes you to different worlds, or without. One of our writers (who’s also a mom) received a sample of Flowly from the company and loved how it took her to an out-of-this-world experience, like a stunning nightscape over the ocean, just through her phone that easily slid into the virtual reality headset.

There are four membership options, two monthly and two yearly, so you can find the best option to fit into your family’s budget. Depending on the membership selected, Mom will also receive a fingerprint and body sensor and a membership tag necklace to remind her she’s the hero of her journey. The company also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee if Mom thinks Flowly isn’t the right fit for her.

lululemon The Reversible Mat

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (20)

Not all yoga mats are created equal, and they don’t get much better than this one. It has a little extra cushion for knees, wrists, and elbows, and it is made from non-slip material (ideal for hot yoga). It's a little longer than the average mat, giving her more space to practice.

It doesn’t get more classic than a set of Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses. Each pair has non-polarized lenses for UV protection and comes with a case to keep them protected when Mom's not wearing them.

Keep Mom’s feet warm in the stylish, yet functional, Kamik Sienna Mid 2 winter boots. One of our writers received a pair of these from the brand and has been facing all kinds of winter weather in them. She thinks other moms like her will appreciate the eco-friendly leather and quilted accents to make her winter wardrobe stand out. The waterproof construction and special insulation will ensure her feet stay dry and warm in as low as -4-degree weather. Plus, the boots' rubber treads won’t weigh her down, and they'll provide plenty of stability and traction.

If she prefers solid color options over patterns, check out the company’s Simona Mid F winter boots.

Parents who are always on-the-go will adore all of the storage this diaper bag has to offer. It can clip to a stroller and has a zipper for easy access to wipes. It can even fit most 15-inch laptops if Mom wants a backpack that doubles as storage for herself.

This light and luxurious robe will have Mom feeling comfortable all day long. Available in eight different colors, this robe is designed with a waist tie and two pockets so she can keep her phone, snacks, or other items close by. It's made with Turkish cotton and is machine washable.

Tuft and Needle Weighted Blanket

Show Your No. 1 Fan She's Loved and Appreciated With the Best Gifts for Moms (25)

The Tuft and Needle Weighted Blanket is a true piece of luxury with its chunky knit design that provides soft, gentle pressure against the body. It measures 40 x 72 inches and weighs 15 pounds, so it’s large and heavy enough for Mom to keep to herself without sharing, according to one of our writers who received a sample of the blanket. In addition, the carbon and latte color options are neutral yet stunning to match any home or bedroom decor.

It’s important to note that this blanket is for adult use only and should be approximately 10% of a user’s body weight. While this blanket is spot clean only, it’s worth the price of gifting Mom a blanket that hugs in all the right places.

Say goodbye to oversized diaper bags, and hello to effortlessness and functionality. This diaper bag, made of vegan leather and nylon, can sit comfortably on your waist or shoulder, no matter where you go. It features a built-in waterproof pocket, detachable changing pad, slots for credit cards or cash, and more.

How We Selected the Best Gifts for Mom

In order to select the best gifts for Mom, we studied the design and features of more than 70 products available on the market. We also researched reviews from customers and competitors and monitored shopping trends to bring you the best and most up-to-date offerings. We considered design, usefulness, personalization, shipping time, lifestyle, interests, and value when reviewing products.

What to Look for in Gifts for Mom

  • A Bit of Luxury: Mom life is, well, not so glamorous. Taking care of kids keeps you busy, and it is easy for moms to get into the habit of throwing up a messy bun and eating a banana for breakfast while running to get the kids to daycare. Gifts that help moms look and feel their best, like a nice tote to replace her tired old diaper bag, can help put a bounce in her step as she goes through the daily grind of being a mom.
  • Creativity: Many people have a creative side, but it tends to get lost to the responsibilities of parenthood and adult life. There just isn't enough time, and eventually, artistic pursuits may fall by the wayside. Art supplies or other gifts that encourage creativity may help moms get back into making art, which in turn can help them feel more balanced and happy.
  • Relaxation: Everyone can benefit from taking some time to pause and rejuvenate themselves, especially busy people like moms. A small gift can go a long way when it comes to self-care. Look for soaps, candles, or home face mask kits to encourage Mom to pamper herself a little each day.
