The 31 Best Gifts for Moms

She might seem like she has everything, but trust us — she doesn't.

Richard Chance for Fatherly

Hardworking moms deserve thoughtful gifts tailored to their personality, not something generic that she’ll end up regifting. When choosing gifts for the moms in your life, consider her style, personality, and interests. Don’t gift workout gear unless she explicitly asks for it. If she doesn’t wear jewelry, don’t be the one to try and change that. Gifts for mom are a great opportunity to get her something she wouldn’t get herself. Overall, the best gifts for moms are thoughtful, a little luxurious, and don’t require her to do any set-up or clean-up. But don’t take our word for it. These gifts for moms were picked by real, actual moms. Whether she’s the kind of mom who appreciates fancy skincare, thoughtful keepsakes, or an upgraded version of something she uses every day, like a nice water bottle or silk pillowcase, there’s something for every mom on this list.

Speaking of winding down, an ultrasonic diffuser like this one will pretty much always be a winner. The teardrop design makes it stand out, as does its four hour run time, and soft white light to set the mood. For bonus points, get her some luxury essential oils.

If she enjoys a nice glass of pinot noir, get her this brilliant wine purifier that aerates wine and remove sulfites and sediment. And looks good while doing it


This virtually indestructible goblet keeps your drink hot or cold for hours (without that aluminum taste) and it's dishwasher safe. She'll use it for coffee in the morning, and something harder at night, for years to come.

Julia Szendrel makes showpiece jewelry that's also affordable. This one spells out love in morse code. Each necklace is unique, and hangs from a 14K gold-filled chain. It's a riff on the classic mom gift that is the macaroni necklace, but one she'll want to wear every day.

A stylish canvas and leather bag that also doubles as an emergency kit, for the mom who loves being prepared. No matter what situation she finds herself in, she can handle it. The backpack is filled with everything from three days' worth of food and water, to a poncho, to toothpaste and a toothbrush, to chocolate (of course) and a full first-aid kit.

This may be the one instance in which it's okay to give a gift that's really for yourself. It's a journal with 112 pages of prompts for mom to fill out with memories, wisdom, and advice that she can pass on to future generations. The gold-stamped linen hardcover and ribbon page holder give it the luxe feel of a keepsake you'll have for generations.

  1. Do you plan on sending your kids back to school this fall?
    Yes. I trust that our schools are taking precautions.
    No. We don't feel that proper precautions are in place.
    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.
Thanks for the feedback!
