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 ($28) comes with three pairs, which is perfect because you know she’s going to accidentally lose one before growing season is over. Check out these other gardener gifts, too.
Why it made our list: Each glove’s coating gives mom a non-slip grip.
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 ($40) 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).
Why it made our list: There’s even enough room for a wine glass!
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, high-waisted and will go with any outfit.

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.
Why it made our list: Not in use? This suitcase actually snaps shut.
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.
Why it made our list: It’s perfect for indoor and outdoor use.
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 ($25) from Amazon is well-equipped to store some of her favorite tools. Check out more gifts that are perfect for crafters.

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). If she’s looking for some inspiration for her new cookie press, send her these buttery spritz cookie recipes.
Why it made our list: No squeezing here! The press’s lever makes it easy to stamp cookies.
The Techie: Portal Mini from Facebook
The Portal Mini from Facebook ($79) 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?)
Why it made our list: Priced at just under $80, this portal is a great value.
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 ($22).
Why it made our list: 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.
Why it made our list: Each bottle can be hand-picked to mom’s tastes!
The Traditional: Candle Subscription Box
There’s a reason the classic gifts are so popular—it’s because they’re universally adored. If you’re striking out on finding the right gift, lean on a gift you can feel confident she’ll use and love: a candle subscription box ($10 – $30). Every month mom will get a candle box shipped straight to her door!
Why it made our list: All of the candles are crafted from natural ingredients.
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 ($50). 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 Kate Spade leather tote ($378).

If mom is always adding to her plant nursery, we’ve got the perfect gift for her. This stunning planter stand ($129) is the perfect way for her to show off her favorite blooms. If mom grows mainly herbs, check out these indoor planters, too.
