We are quickly approaching one of the most important days of the year: Mother’s Day.

The older I get, the more I realize just how much our moms truly deserve. It goes without saying that they have the hardest (and, unquestionably, most thankless) job in the world. Many times, especially when we’re younger, the sacrifices they make, the love they share, and the countless hours they spend worrying about us go unappreciated.

While most of us probably can’t afford to buy them a beautiful house in the Hamptons or send them on the European vacation of their dreams like they deserve, we can surprise them with a thoughtful gift to show them we care. At the very least, we can pick out something that makes them feel cute while they empty the dishwasher after a long day at work.

Whether you’re shopping for your mom, mother-in-law, best friend, or sister, we have the perfect gift ideas to let the women in your life know they are appreciated and loved by you this Mother’s Day.

For Your Mom

The woman who raised you certainly deserves more than last-minute flowers from the supermarket on this special day. Ranging from $13 to $130, these gifts are both incredibly thoughtful and practical. Elevate her time in the garden with a pair of floral gloves, introduce her to the magical technology of sunrise alarm clocks, or gift her with a couple pieces of dainty, feminine jewelry

For Your Mother-In-Law

Is your MIL just as adorable and boujie as mine is? What can I say – she has great taste, and I’m certainly not complaining about that since she passed along her fondness for nice things to my husband who picks out excellent gifts all on his own (hooray for me!)

Similar to your mom, shopping for your mother-in-law requires extra time and energy if you want to make a good impression. Pick out a unique gift like pressed wildflower candles for her dining room table if she’s the hostess with the mostest, or a darling stacked flower necklace reflecting her kids’ birth months.

For Expecting Moms

Whether the expecting mom in your life is your sister or best friend, celebrate this special season by gifting stylish, yet comfortable fashion staples like a maxi dress, slides, or a cute pajama set.

Alternatively, you can opt for a foot massager to relax her swollen feet, a travel bag for her babymoon (which could also double as a diaper bag), or a parenting book to read that is equal parts hilarious and sweet.
