15 Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Kind of Mom
Shopping for mom? We've got you covered. We've collected some of the best mother's day gift ideas for women with all types of interests.
The Chef: Dutch Oven
Mom deserves a well-stocked kitchen that allows her to cook to her heart’s desire. Whether she’s entertaining guests or cooking for family, she’ll get great use out of this gorgeous dutch oven ($60) from World Market. Dutch ovens can do the work of baking pans, soup pots, deep fryers—you name it. Mom needs a versatile tool like this.

The Gardener: Garden Gloves
If mom loves being in the garden, she likely already owns several pairs of gloves—but not like these. This non-slip set ($27) comes with three pairs, which is perfect because you know she’s going to accidentally lose one before growing season is over.
The Reader: Bathtub Bookholder
If mom loves to read, then get her something thoughtful that allows her to catch up on her favorite new book from the comfort of a well-deserved bubble bath. This bathtub caddy ($30) fits both physical books and tablets, which means it’s well suited to whichever mom prefers (and if she prefers tablet, let’s just hope she’s very careful).
The Active Mom: High-Quality Yoga Pants
Whether mom loves yoga, running or hitting the gym, she’ll be the first to tell you that there’s no substitution for high-quality workout gear. We love these yoga pants ($89) from Athleta, which are comfortable, stylish and high-waisted.
The Music Lover: Suitcase Record Player
This adorable suitcase record player ($50) from Macy’s allows mom to play vintage records from her collection as well as any tunes she’s got saved to her favorite bluetooth-enabled device. It’s the perfect gift for the mom who has an expansive collection of physical and digital music.
The Entertainer: Resin Cheeseboard
Does mom love being the hostess with the mostess? Then this one’s for her. We are obsessed with the brown and turquoise color combination in this resin cheeseboard ($60) from Pier 1. It’s meant for cheese and crackers, but that doesn’t mean mom can’t get creative with what she serves on it.
The Crafter: Craft Caddy
Every artist needs an organized space to store her materials. Whether mom knits, crochets, paints or makes hyper realistic rock carvings, this craft caddy ($23) from Amazon is well-equipped to store some of her favorite tools.
The Baker: Cookie Press
A tool that makes baking cookies quicker and less messy? Mom will be thrilled. We love this cookie press ($30) that comes with 12 discs. The possibilities are endless, especially once mom gets her hands on this and starts experimenting with her favorite dough (tell her we volunteer to try them all).
The Techie: Portal from Facebook
The Portal from Facebook ($195) is an absolute must-have for moms who live far away. She will absolutely love opening this gift, then basking in the fact that she will be able to call you and see your beautiful face in HD anytime she wants. (Okay, maybe you need to set some boundaries after she opens it?)
The Sentimental: Mother-Daughter Necklace
If your mother teared at each piece of handmade pottery and macaroni art from grade school, opt for a more sentimental gift that you know will warm her heart. We love this mother and daughter necklace ($20)—it has just the right combination of style and heart.
The Wine Lover: Personalized Wine Delivery
Subscriptions make excellent gifts (did you know Taste of Home has a Special Delivery Box?), especially if your mom seems to already have everything. Sign her up for a Winc Wine Club Membership (prices vary) that keeps gifting month after month. Mom will be absolutely thrilled.
The Chocoholic: Chocolate Box
There is nothing wrong with having a sweet tooth that just won’t quit. If mama loves chocolate, let’s indulge her with this box of assorted truffles ($10) from Lindt.
If you’re making dessert for Mother’s Day, we recommend sticking with the chocolate theme and trying one of our favorite chocolate desserts.
The Fashionista: Leather Tote
Fashion-forward mothers deserve the highest-quality new finds. If she loves large totes, then she’d love this leather tote ($168) from Nordstrom. This is a great choice for mothers whose bags always seem to carry an indescribable amount of stuff (seriously Mom, is that an entire box of tissues in there?).
The Animal Lover: Cat Wine Glasses
If mom loves cats, drinking and hilariously wonderful wine glasses, we’ve got the perfect gift for her. We cannot get enough of these Cat Wine Glasses ($35) from Pier 1. They’re stemless, lightweight and adorned with delightfully sassy cats that will only get funnier as the glass gets emptier.
