Moms won’t always tell you what they want and when you ask them, they say they have everything they need. But the worst thing you can do is show up without a gift on a special day! 

There’s no one-size-fits-all present for moms. Moms are different in their unique ways; some like cooking; others like to order takeout. Some like sneakers; others prefer heels. So deciding the best gifts to get for moms can feel like an impossible chore. That’s why we’ve scouted 40 best items that are thoughtful, meaningful, personalized, and useful and will completely blow her mind and get you the best daughter or son trophy.

Choosing the best gifts for mom

Gifts are a great way to honor your mom. The tradition of honoring your mother through gifts goes back to the 16th century when people would honor their “mother church,” the church in which they were baptized. The action of gifting mothers then became commonplace with Mothering Sunday, when children who worked away from home would return bearing gifts for their mothers. Oftentimes the gifts would be wildflowers or simnel cake.

Traditional presents for mothers typically included something sweet, and of course, flowers. 

When choosing a gift for your mom you can go the traditional route and pick something symbolic or go for the modern option and just buy her something she’s interested in. Semi-precious gemstones have been used for centuries to symbolize the love between a mother and child and are still a wonderful gift idea even today.

Think of all the things your mother needs or enjoys. If all else fails, a subscription box containing symbols of nurturing (such as a succulent) and other care products is a sure win. Incorporating your mom’s favorite colors into your gifts is also a good choice and conveys meaning. 

How we identified the best gifts for mom

When we evaluated the best gifts for mom, we chose items that conveyed a personal message most of all. Each option provided is as elegant and timeless as your beloved mom. 

Personalized gifts are always a great choice, no matter the recipient. Our personalized gifts will make your mom feel appreciated, seen, and loved. Also, the gift will be uniquely hers! 

Our Thoughtful category specializes in gifts of significance, focusing on mental health and wellness as well as memory keepsakes. All mothers like to look back and remember poignant moments with their loved ones. These gifts show effort and allow a tangible look at the connection between mother and child. 

We focused on current trends for 2023 mainly self-care, homeware, and jewelry items, as well as an added emphasis on mental well-being. It’s tough being a mother. There’s a lot of responsibility and sacrifice that goes into it and we wanted to include gifts that show we understand this. 

Our Meaningful section focuses solely on the symbolic, featuring birthstones and raw materials that represent strength, endurance, and the qualities we attribute to motherhood, like justice, wisdom, and a sense of purity.

Above all, our gift guide was designed to feature items that would pamper and delight her. 

Tips for buying the best gifts for mom

  1. Get something she’d choose for herself
    Whatever item you choose, be it symbolic or functional, make sure it’s something she would want for herself. You know your mom best, so keep her interests in mind when choosing a gift.
  2. Keep the goal in mind
    The goal of a gift is to make that person feel special, no matter the item. Think of how you want your mom to feel when she receives her gift. Do you want her to feel loved and cared for? Do you want to convey how she has impacted your life? Base your choices on emotion and you can’t go wrong.
  3. Sometimes moms need a break
    Oftentimes, moms will say they need a break. When choosing your gift, why not consider something that does just that? If she can’t take too much time off, consider a spa set or gift card. Or in addition to a gift, why not do something that doesn’t cost anything, like cleaning up the house or doing the laundry?
