To the woman who handled your teen tantrums and stood by you on graduation day, nothing will ever be enough to show her your gratitude. But on Mother’s Day, the universal day when everyone bestows mom with gifts, you too, should celebrate mom or the guardian angel in your life (mom-in-law/stepmom).
Below, we have curated a gift guide for all mothers. If you’re a mom who would like to treat yourself, then go ahead and enjoy this list. Plus, we are giving away a Mother’s Day prize pack, which includes a selection of these gifts. Click here to enter our Mother’s Day giveaway.
For the Tech Mom
Kobo Forma, $299, is a lightweight design with new page-turn buttons to move you through your story. It’s an e-reader that mom can carry on the go — whether she is traveling around the world or simply on her daily commute to work. The Comfort Light Pro reduces blue-light exposure and she can also easily borrow books from the public library with the built-in OverDrive.
ASUS ZenBook 14
The ASUS ZenBook 14, $1499.99, is the world’s smallest 14-inch laptop, making it super convenient for travel. The royal blue finish with a rose gold trim is a chic style. It’s portable, compact and has a crisp, clear, high-resolution display. Whether mom wants to binge on her latest series or work on those spreadsheets, she would love this tech treat.
Gift of Comfort
Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris
Something that mom will appreciate is the gift of relaxation. Give the gift of self care with a treatment at the Moroccan-inspired Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie — it’ll transport her to another world without having to leave the city. We suggest the signature Hammam and Gommage treatment, $145, which includes a steam and body exfoliation. It’s the ultimate detoxification treatment.
The Ten Spot
The Ten Spot is a beauty bar that gives the gift of comfort. They have a selection of gift cards that you can purchase for your mother. She can then choose to spoil herself with a facial treatment or a mani/pedi. Leave it up to her with a gift card option.
For practical moms, it’s always best to go for some home treats. Endy recently launched their new duvet and duvet covers. The thermo-regulating comforter wicks away moisture and keeps you sleeping cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.
For the book lover, Indigo has a wide selection of new releases every month. We would recommend an inspiring book titled Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis, $22.99, which gives you a few tips on how you can live up to your full potential no matter what. We would also suggest Becoming, $40, by Michelle Obama, an intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States. If she’s an adventurous mom, she will love The Bucket List: 1000 Adventures Big & Small, $47, because it’s never too late to begin the things she’s dreamed of doing.
For the Style-Savvy Mom
While we transition into warmer wear, a nice jacket would be a great accessory. How about getting mom a timeless, chic jacket like this Corintha outerwear piece, $199, from Minimum Clothing? It has a loose fit for a cool and casual look.
Poppy & Peonies
Surprise mom with a limited-edition Poppy & Peonies Mother’s Day Box, $99, which includes a Madeline crossbody in blush, a Cotton Beach Bag in spring stripe, a zodiac necklace set, a straw beach hat, and a card holder in a tropical floral print. That gives her all she needs for a fun day out.
Call It Spring

Who doesn’t love socks? We love them and you secretly do too. The Stance Pressed Not Stressed Crew, $20, Not Thirsty Crew, $20 and the Luster Anklet, $17, are three options that you can shop for mom (and yourself).
It’s always the thought that counts. Mejuri’s Engravable Tag Necklace, $299, is handcrafted in 14k solid gold, and you can add a personal touch by engraving an initial. This is a thoughtful present for mom and will ensure your favorite child status.
Uniqlo’s new linen collection is a great option for mom (and get a matching one for yourself). The premium shirts are 100 percent premium French linen, $39.90, and when paired with jeans or a skirt, are equally in style whether it’s day or evening.
