30+ Mother’s Day Gift Ideas She’s Guaranteed to Love

mother's day gift ideas

It can be a challenge to find something special to gift your mom for Mother’s Day—something that you know she’ll really love.

So I decided to enlist the help of an expert: my mom! Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned about Mother’s Day shopping, it’s that moms really do know best. (In my experience, if you go rogue with a gift you “think” she might like…there’s a 99% chance she’ll end up returning it.)

I asked my mom to send me a list of her favorite things (including the Hotel Lobby Spa Candle), as well as things she’s had her eye on for a while. I also asked the women in my Facebook group to share the best Mother’s Day gifts they’ve ever given or received.

Below is a compilation of the top responses (organized by price.) Happy shopping!

    I will never forget the most wonderful mother’s day gift I received a couple of years ago. It was a bag of cosmetic goodies presented to me by my great nephew and his wife It was a total surprise and brought tears to my eyes. I never raised a child and this gift made me feel loved and very special.
