1. Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering

Joanna Gains is probably the most popular mama around right now! Her new cookbook is huge and beautiful, and filled with a lot of yummy sounding recipes. You can even make your mom a recipe out of the book for dinner, and give her the book as a gift!




2. Me and My Big Ideas Super Mom Planner + Accessories

For the creative mom-on-the-go, this planner is amazing. I’m not even a mom and I love it. In 2018, the makers of the Happy Planner expanded their Super Mom line, and now there are tons and tons of helpful sheets (like above), stickers, organizers – you name it!  There are sticker books specifically dedicated to mommin’, sports practice stickers, seasonal stickers, recipe stickers, fitness stickers, budgeting stickers… seriously. So. Many. Stickers.




3. Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser


Essential Oils are supposed to help with allergies, feeling relaxed, and sleeping better! This particular diffuser has mist control, 7 color-changing options, and it’s BPA-free. You can make Mom feel like she’s at a spa, for a lot less than an actual spa.




4. Picnic Basket

Most of the time, all moms want is to spend time with their kids. Breakfast in bed was cool, but now that the weather is finally on the up & up, take mom for a picnic! It’s thoughtful and fun, and you can leave her with this awesome picnic basket that comes with everything she’ll need to picnic next time!




5. A Cute Vase and Some Flowers

One way to step up your annual-flower delivery game is to include a cute vase!





6. Cute Gardening Tools

Give mom’s gardening tools a little update, These floral tools have great reviews and look super cute!




7. Bath Bombs

Because mom deserves to relax! Grab these bath bombs, a good book, some wine and voila! Plus, this set of 12 has 5 star reviews, with 5,021 reviewers!! That’s awesome.




8. A Coffee Mug

Amazon has some really funny Mother’s Day mugs! This was my favorite, but here are a couple of other good ones:




9. Decorate Terra Cotta Pots

This is particularly great if you have kids, and you’re looking for a gift for your own mother, have your kids decorate pots and plant some flowers for her! Even if you don’t have kids, this is a great personalized gift that isn’t too cheesy.



10. Did I Mention Wine??


This wine glass with a cute wine opener and a bottle of wine make for a great gift basket!


Or this one!
