With Mother’s Day fast approaching, the pressure is on to find the perfect present. Long gone are the days when she was thrilled to receive a hand-drawn card or pottery project. Now, as an adult, you need a thoughtful gift that says thank you to the woman who gave you life, but you also want it be something she’ll actually use – and think of you when she does. Tricky stuff. That’s why we put together this guide of Mother's Day gifts she is sure to love.
A cult-favorite of celebrity moms like Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, and Cindy Crawford, Gorjana offers beautiful birthstone and personalized necklaces. But it's the modern locket we think makes the best Mother's Day gift. The dainty gold necklace is designed with a center cubic zirconia stone surrounded by a celestial burst and opens up to hold two photos. Plus, it's created with longevity in mind so that it can be passed down through generations.

Instead of traditional flowers, this box is brimming with pretty makeup and soothing skin care products inspired by flowers like primrose, jasmine, petunia, and calendula. Inside you'll find a Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Body Oil, Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash, Georgette Klinger Primrose Eye Cream, Wander Beauty Wanderless Eyeshadow Palette, and Votivo Desert Cactus Candle, among many other botanical products. With a total value of $237, this is truly a steal.
Sure, it's not the prettiest gift, but it'll show your mom that you recognize how hard she works. The iRobot Roomba will take the tedious task of vacuuming off her to-do list so she has more time to relax. Through the app, the hands-free device can be scheduled from anywhere, and the patented "dirt detect" sensors guide it to concentrated areas that need to be cleaned.
Picking out a fragrance for someone else is tricky, which is why it's always best to go with a gift set. This luxurious set includes four perfumes inspired by gardens from around the world -- think lush greens along the Nile River, magnolia tress in the heart of Paris, and Mediterranean zest in Tunisia. Every time she sprays one, she'll be transported somewhere ahh-mazing.
What’s not to love about comfy-chic loungewear? Available in size XS to XL, this cotton set feels silky-smooth and has just the right amount of stretch. Plus, the pants have pockets! In a pinch, she could slip on sneakers and get away with wearing them out of the house, too.

If your mom is anything like mine, she is always reaching for her wallet — even when you beg her not to. The least you could is give her something chic to keep her cards in, like this floral canvas case that holds up to six of them. To make it extra special, tuck a note in one of the slots so she finds it on a later occasion.
It’s time to retire her Crocs, because Birkenstocks are back with super cute new styles. This rubber pair, which comes in seven colors, is great for the warmer months ahead. The cushion-y soles mold to the contours of feet and absorb shock for comfortable wear, whether she’s gardening, running errands, or going to the beach.
Ignite her senses with this floral fave from Bath and Body Works. Notes of lilac, dewy greens, and fresh air fill the room with scents of spring, and with 45 hours of burn time, this candle will last this season and beyond.

This is a great gift for moms who love to cook with fresh ingredients. The sustainable indoor home garden grows up to six herbs at a time -- it comes with Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, thyme, Thai basil, and mint -- and is engineered for easy growth. Built-in sensors automatically turn the sun-mimicking lights on and off each day and let you know when to feed and add water. Also nice? The minimalist design will look beautiful on her kitchen counter.
Turn her skin care routine into a relaxing ritual with this facial kit, which includes a rose quartz facial roller and gua sha sculpting tool. When used consistently, the duo helps release facial tension and boosts glow while removing negative energy. What's more, rose quartz crystal represents love, so she'll be reminded of your love and appreciation with every use.
Think outside of the bottle: This triple-insulated canteen holds a standard 750-ml bottle of wine and keeps it cold for than 25 hours. It also comes complete with two stainless steel, stemless wine glasses. Raise one to celebrate your mom on Mother's Day.
