Our 2019 Mother's Day Gift Guide

If there's anyone who deserves to be showered with gifts, it's mom. And while you know she's bound to love (or at least pretend to love) whatever you give her, there's still a lot of pressure to find Mother's Day gift ideas that feel unique and special.

That's where our Mother's Day Gift Guide comes in. Our editors curated this list of gifts that ranges from traditional (hello again, massage), to adrenaline-fueled (let mom be a race car driver for a day!), to ensure you find Mother's Day gifts that perfectly match her unique personality.

Massage

Motherhood can be a pain in the neck—literally. Help make it up to mom by booking her a massage in the style of her choice. If it's her first massage, go for a relaxation-focused modality like Swedish. If she's complaining of specific points of tension, kick it up a notch with deep-tissue.

Apple iPhone 7 in Rose Gold

Whether your mom is a smartphone addict or can't bring herself to give up her landline, she's sure to love this Apple iPhone (if only because it gives her an excuse to call you more).

Steakhouse Dinner

Where was it ever written that Dad gets to enjoy a Father's Day steak, while Mom has to be content with whatever "cute" mess the kids cook up in the kitchen? Flip the script this year and treat Mom to a prime cut with all the fixin's (and a martini or two).

Shower Speaker

For some moms, taking a shower is the only taste of pure unadulterated solitude they get all day. Help her make the most of those precious moments with this waterproof speaker, which allows her to listen to her favorite tunes or podcasts while washing off the stress of the day.

Mama Bear Top

We love the slouchy look and adorable shoulder pads on this cotton-blend top so much that just looking at it makes us want to curl up on the couch with a book and a nice mug of tea—which would make nice accompanying gifts for Mom, btw.

Facial

A day at the spa is the gift we'd most like to receive, so we figure Mom would love it as well. In fact, you might even consider booking facials together and following it up with a side-by-side couples massage.

Air Fryer

You know those social media friends who are always posting delicious photos of the crispy-skinned chicken wings they made in their air fryer? Yeah, Mom has those friends too. Transfer those bragging rights to her and invite yourself over for “fried” pork chop night.

Gardening Boots

If Mom likes spending all her time in the garden, she'll love these adorable printed boots, which feature deep treads to keep her from slipping in the slickest of mud patches.

paint and wine

Paint Nite

Surprise Mom by planning a night out at a painting studio, where instructors lead students step-by-step through the creation of an original work of art. She'll love getting to spend time with you while learning a new skill. And did we mention they're usually BYOB?

Bath Bomb Gift Set

When Mom’s too busy to get to the spa, let the spa come to her, courtesy of this limited-edition bath bomb set that features scents like lavender, green tea, and eucalyptus.

Racing Experience

Mother's Day is often about letting Mom relax for a change, but there's no rule that says she can't use it to get an adrenaline rush instead. Book her a racing experience and she'll get to fulfill her need for speed as a professional driver pilots her around the track.

Spinning Facial Brush

Sure, obtaining glowing skin might not be every busy mom’s top priority, but that’s why this tool is so genius. It’ll help her make the most of her (already limited) grooming time by exfoliating her skin quickly and efficiently so she can get back to more important tasks (like drinking wine in the bathroom).

MLB Wine Opener

Frankly, we think moms—and women in general—get shorted in the fan gear department. Help level the playing field by gifting her this corkscrew emblazoned with her favorite team’s logo (and maybe a bottle of something nice… you know… just in case they make it to the playoffs).
