Mamas Who Dream of the Bahamas
Some say being a mom is the hardest job. Probably because it’s a ton of jobs rolled into one—doctor, teacher, chef, boogeyman exterminator, the list goes on. Know a mom who could use some PTO? Get them ready for their next tropical getaway with vacation essentials such as weekender bags, travel mugs, and more. This time, the kids stay home.
Supermoms Who Always Save the Day
Moms can be an absolute lifesaver when it counts the most. Like when you need a ride from soccer practice or when a giant Tolkienian spider has you cornered in your bathroom. If this reminds you of a mother figure in your life, find a gift that’ll make them feel like the superhero they are. Up, up, and away!
Pet Moms Who Pamper Their Pooches
Many people treat their pets like members of their own family—like, literally. They’ll push their fur babies around in strollers, cook them gourmet meals, and have full-on conversations with them. If you’re shopping for an animal lover, search for Mother’s Day gifts that’ll remind them of their beloved animal companions.
Plant Moms Who Nurture Growth
It’s way too easy to kill a houseplant. Not enough sunlight? Dead. Too much water? Dead. Wrong Spotify playlist? DEAD. That’s what makes having a green thumb so impressive. Plant enthusiasts don’t just keep plants alive, they give plants the attention they need to flourish. Sound familiar? If you know a plant mom, find them nature-themed home decor that’ll compliment their indoor greenery.
Moms Who Desperately Need Me Time
Mothers raising young children seldom get time alone. Just when they think they’ve escaped for a solitary moment to themselves, their kids materialize out of nowhere like Michael Myers stalking his victims. How the hell does he get around so fast?! Choose gifts such as throw pillows and fleece blankets to help moms relax when they can finally sneak away for a nap.
Moms Who Give the Best Advice
A conversation with mom after a rough day can be just what the doctor ordered. Some moms always know what to say to lift your spirits and guide you in the right direction when times get tough. If your mom gives good advice such as “Always be true to yourself” or “Snitches get stitches,” consider grabbing them a gift sharing a motivational message.

If you know someone’s who’s expecting, they’re probably really excited to find out the person their child will become. That kid could grow up to be a future president, or even better—a podcast host! While you’re thinking of all the possibilities, look for Mother’s Day gifts that’ll help your preggo pals get more comfortable as they grow a new human. Again, we’re talkin’ throw pillows, fleece blankets, and other cozy accessories.
