The Best Mother’s Day Gifts For Every Type of Mom

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and as a new mama myself, I am extra excited to celebrate this year!! No matter if they have kids that are one year old or 30 years old, moms work (and worry!) around the clock working to keep their kids happy and healthy, so it always feels great to spoil them (even when her kids are all grown up).  Whether you are looking for something to send your mom for Mother’s Day, or your step-mom, mother-in-law, grandma, sister who is expecting, or your bestie who just had her baby, I’ve got you covered. I have scoured the internet for all of the best Mother’s Day gifts for 2023, and I have curated the perfect Mother’s Day gift guide just for you!  

Mother’s Day Gifts For Your Mom, Step-Mom, or Mother-in-Law

Here are the best ways to spoil your mom on Mother’s Day – she deserves it!

Caraway Cookware Set

I own this set and looooove it! This is a perfect gift if your mom loves to cook (or if she is still hanging on to the same pots and pans she got for her wedding 25 years ago!).

Kenny Flowers Charleston Smocked Maxi Dress

Our new Charleston print is one of my all-time favorites – the pastel colors are so flattering, and the print is subtle, yet beautifully detailed! I especially love the smocked maxi dress. It’s so comfy!! And if she is looking for a great one-piece swimsuit for the summer that is super flattering, try this ruffle one-piece in the same print!!

Hotel Lobby Candle Core Collection Trio

If your mom is a candle snob, she needs the Hotel Lobby Candle Core Collection Trio!!!

Chanel Perfume

Your mom totally deserves a nice perfume! I love this one from Chanel because the bottle will look so gorgeous and luxurious on her bathroom counter.

Kendra Scott Jewelry Box

Another stunning piece that will look great in her closet, bathroom, or bedroom!

Away Suitcase

This is a great suitcase with a lifetime warranty. I absolutely love mine! The pink color is on sale right now, too, which is a bonus for Mother’s Day!

Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine

Best. Coffee. Machine. Ever!!! Your mom will LOVEEE this espresso machine if she loves lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, etc.!

Crate & Barrel Wood and Marble Lazy Susan

Perfect for the mom who likes to entertain!

Bouquet of Flowers         

An easy and classic gift for your mom on Mother’s Day is a gorgeous bouquet of flowers! Check out all of the Mother’s Day options from Urban Stems, here

Her Favorite Bottle of Wine makes it super easy to find your mom’s favorite wine to be sent right to her doorstep! Not sure which wine to choose? Check out this list of my all-time favorite wines!

Custom Recipe Tea Towel

Choose your favorite recipe from your childhood, or even a recipe from your mom’s mom (in her original handwriting!). Such a sweet and sentimental gift.

Bala Bangles

Is your mom always going on walks with her girlfriends around the neighborhood? Get here these 1 lb chic weighted bangles – I use them and they’re so cute and a great way to add just a little extra weight to your at-home workouts or walks.

Bala Bangles review: 'I tried the Internet's most popular wearable weights, and I'm converted'

UGG Slippers


Treat your mom to these super cozy UGG slippers that will make her feel like she is walking on a cloud! You can choose from five different colors on the Nordstrom website.

Amazon’s Best-Selling Robe

Couple those UGG slippers with this best-selling robe from Amazon, and you’ll have yourself a winning combo!

Ember Temperature-Controlled Coffee Cup

Ok this product is GENIUS. We all know a mom who is so busy that she is never able to finish her cup of coffee while it is still warm. But here’s some good news – this temperature-controlled cup from Ember solves that! I think I need one for myself for working from home!

iRobot Roomba

Save your mom time (and energy!) by gifting her this iRobot Roomba vacuum from Amazon. You can even control it from your phone when you aren’t home! Sooo convenient!

Mother’s Day Gifts For Your Grandma

We can’t forget about the grandmas! Whether you are looking for your grandma or for your kids’ grandma, these are all of my best recs.

Custom Handprint Cutting Board

How cute is this custom handprint cutting board from Etsy?! Grandma is going to cherish this forever. You can also get a recipe engraved on a cutting board if you have a family recipe that is special to you!

Storyworth Book

Storyworth is like a personalized conversation with your loved ones and their memories! Once per week, Storyworth will send the recipient a writing prompt via email that will also be shared with you. Then, at the end of a year, Storyworth will put together a custom scrapbook with all of your grandma’s memories! This would be great to pass down to your kids one day, too.

AeroGarden Indoor Garden

If your grandma likes to cook with fresh herbs (or if she just likes to have some plants to tend to), this is a great gift for her!

No-Slip Memory Foam Slippers

These slippers are super cute and comfortable, but they will also keep grandma safe so that she doesn’t slip and fall. 

Long-Distance Map

If Grandma lives a few states away, this is the perfect gift to remind her that she is always close at heart!

Decorative Recipe Tin

Does anyone else’s grandma keep all of their best recipes in an old notebook that is, shall we say, not in the best shape? Gift her this new recipe box that will keep all of her recipes safe!

Customized Grandma’s Garden Print


Another great customizable gift is this Etsy “Grandma’s Garden” print!

Mother’s Day Gifts For the Expecting Mom

It’s always nice to spoil the mamas-to-be, too! Here is what I would want as an expecting mom. PS – if you haven’t already, check out my best baby registry picks and pregnancy must-haves for more gift ideas! 

Stanley Tumbler

If she doesn’t already have a Stanley cup, she needs one (especially in this purple color – how cute?!). Pregnant mamas need to stay super hydrated, so this is the perfect gift for her.

Mama Sweatshirt

She can finally wear a mama sweatshirt! Yay! This crewneck is super lightweight and is an Amazon best-seller.

Mama Necklace

If jewelry is more her style, get her this chic mama necklace that will go with everything! Or this one!

A Bumpsuit

In case you haven’t heard, this is THE pregnancy uniform! I have been completely obsessed with this brand – I couldn’t stop wearing their dresses and jumpsuits during my pregnancy!! I wear a M.

The World’s Best Blanket

I got one of these for Christmas, after hearing ALL of the hype about it for so long, and I can attest that it 100000% lives up to the hype.

Belly Oil

The one thing every pregnant lady can’t get enough of – glazing herself like a donut with belly oils! I put this belly oil on every night while I was pregnant with Harrison to try to avoid stretch marks, and I loved it!

Kenny Flowers Aruba Swimsuit

Our Aruba swimsuit from Kenny Flowers is the ultimate pregnancy suit! It has luxe fabric that is super stretchy, perfect for that bump! You don’t even have to size up – it’s super stretchy (it also comes in a one-piece if that is more your style)!

Bump Box

Expecting Mom Gift with Personalized Spa Set Pregnancy Gift Candle + Tumbler

Treat her to a pregnancy-specific self-care box

Massage Gun

Massage guns are soooo nice for those sore muscles, especially if the mama-to-be is in her third trimester!

Mother’s Day Gifts For the New Mom

New moms definitely need a little extra loving this year, so here is what you should get the new mamas in your life!

UberEats Gift Card

The last thing a new mom wants to worry about is what to cook for dinner. Treat her (and dad, too!) to a nice meal, delivered to them!

Custom Baby Name Necklace

This 14K Yellow Gold necklace from Baby Gold is absolutely stunning, and such a cute gift for a new mom! Chances are, she’s been getting a ton of gifts for the baby lately, but getting her something like this is a nice way to remind her that you’re thinking about HER, too.

Spa Finder Gift Card

Getting a new mom a Spa Finder gift card is basically like giving her heaven for a day! Spa Finder works with thousands of locations, so no matter where she lives, she will be able to book herself a “me-day.” Or if you know her go-to spa, get her a gift card there!

No-Slip Memory Foam Slippers

This self-care box is specifically for new moms and has all of the relaxing essentials!

Colorful Wine Glasses

She has probably been waiting a year (or more) for that glass of wine, so get her these chic colorful wine glasses! PS – they come in multiple different colors if purple isn’t her thing.

Omaha Steaks

Chances are, the new mom in your life doesn’t have a whole lot of time to go grocery shopping for the perfect steak, so a gift package from Omaha Steaks is ideal!

Instant Pot

The Instant Pot is a great gift for a new mom because it cuts down cooking time significantly. Plus, many moms use the Instant Pot to make baby food (check out the Instant Pot baby food cookbook, here!).
