Best Gifts For Moms This Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! I feel like every day of the year is a day to celebrate our moms. That might mean your birth mom, your adoptive mom, your aunt who raised you and is like your mom, or your best friends mom that you grew up with! Don’t forget mother-in-laws 😉 There are so many special ladies out there to celebrate, so I have created this list of some of the best gifts for moms, and there is something for everyone to love!

Need some ideas for Mother's Day? Here is a list of some of the best gifts for moms, from jewelry, to wine, to clothing and more!

Best Gifts For Moms

Jewelry: I have always loved jewelry, but as a mom, personalized jewelry has taken over my heart! I love getting things personalized with my initials, my last name, or my children’s names. These personalized, stackable rings from Shay Designs are so beautiful! 

I personalized a stack of my own with each of my children’s names, and I am so obsessed. You can wear one alone, wear them on different fingers, or stack them all together. Shay Designs also has necklaces and other gorgeous pieces in their shop!

I am also in love with statement earrings right now, and they make the perfect gift for moms of all ages! Here are some of my favorites.


Skincare: My mom loves it when I get here skincare (at least that’s what she says;)) because it is always items that she wouldn’t buy for herself. Skincare is one of those items that is so important, especially as we age, but it can be forgotten, especially if we are busy moms.

I got her a set similar to this from Lancome. It is the Renergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting and Firming Eye and Face Cream Set Includes Eye Cream, Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Day Cream and Night Cream. I gave it to her as a gift for Christmas, and it was a hit! Their products are amazing for more mature skin or for preventative measures. Plus, set’s like this have a little bit of everything to try, so you don’t have to commit to just one product, unless it’s something you know she loves!

Dermalogica makes some fabulous skincare products as well, fitting for multiple skin types and age ranges.

I have also been loving this serum and moisturizer from Cirem Cosmetics. The packaging, first of all, is stunning. The products in them are even more beautiful and great on so many skin types. Their Youthboosting Diamond Creme is such a beautiful product!

Wine: Obviously, you knew I was going to put this on the list. My mom loves wine, and really enjoyed it when I got her this subscription to WINC last year. It is such a great gift, and it is the gift that keeps on giving!

You can buy them 1 month, 2 months, a year, etc… subscription, and they will receive two bottles of wine a month. I don’t know too many moms who would be opposed to wine just showing up on their door step once a month. I know I wouldn’t! I love that there are different options for subscriptions, so that you can choose what kind of wine the receiver will get as well as how much you would like to spend on the subscription. Get $20 Off Your First Winc Membership Order.

I also love Gold Medal Wine Club. This is the first wine club that I was introduced to, and I have never had a bad experience with them. They offer some really luxury wine brands and wine subscriptions, which is great if you are trying to find the best gifts for moms who love expensive wine!

The Platinum Series from GoldMedalWineClub showcases a collection of highly distinguished, ultra-premium wines from boutique California wineries. They include 90+ rated, low production, hand-selected fine wines

Mother's Day

They are a little bit different in that Gold Medal Wine Club offers a bigger range of box-types in my opinion, but WINC offers some really wonderful gift box packages, which you can see a more in-depth review on here.

What will you be getting for that special mom in your life this Mother’s Day? Do you have anything on your list of best gifts for moms, maybe something that you want for yourself?:) Leave it in the comments below (and send your significant other’s to this post as a subtle hint)!

*Cheers to all of the amazing mamas out there*

    Love those earrings! I really need all new jewelry anyway and I have no idea where to look.

    These are great gifts suggestions! However, as much as I am grateful for any material gift I receive for Mother’s day, what I really want is a total day of rest and relaxation. No housework, no worries, no nothing. Hey, its our day! We can do whatever we wish, right?

      Umm yes. I totally agree!

    Mother’s day may be over but my mother’s birthday’s coming so I’m gonna give her a gift, and all of these stuff look so perfect as a gift! I know she’ll like those statement earrings among others. Anyways, thanks for sharing this list. Cheers! 🙂
