If we had our way, every day would be Mother’s Day. Because truly, is there a harder and more demanding job out there? We think not. But given that there is one dedicated day each year when you really get to show the special women in your life how much you love them and express your gratitude, this is the time to spoil them.
Ahead, the best gifts that any mom is sure to love. (Just don’t forget to write a heartfelt card.)
NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device
This Mother's Day, gift mom this much-buzzed-about facial toning device, which uses microcurrents to firm and tighten the skin. Trust us, the results—which include more prominent cheekbones, as well as reduced fine lines and wrinkles—speak for themselves.
Homesick Thank You, Mom Candle
Homesick is best known for its candles named for countries, as well as U.S. cities and states, but it also offers candles honoring specific memories, including this one just for moms. With top notes of bergamot, lavender, and sage, the scent of this candle is bright, fresh, and inviting. Plus, no need for wrapping paper or even a card—when you place your order, you can personalize a note that'll appear on the pretty packaging.
La Mer The Mini Miracle Broth Glow Collection
La Mer is known for its truly luxe products and, yes, the expensive price tag that comes with. Certainly a gift that 'wows,' any Mom would be happy to receive this set of four pint-sized treatments (a cleansing foam, lotion, cream, and serum), all of which are infused with the brand's renowned Miracle Broth elixir. Together they work to give skin a lasting glow.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
The Dyson Supersonic is one of our favorite hairdryers here at Byrdie HQ, so needless to say we're confident Mom would be thrilled to receive one for Mother's Day. Because really, who wouldn't?
VYBE Percussion Massage Gun Pro Model
Few things work quite as well as a deep tissue massage when you're feeling achy and sore. But instead of gifting Mom a one-time massage treatment, invest in this massager equipped with powerful percussion vibration. It's got nine different speeds and eight attachments to target different areas of the body.
Venus ET Fleur Classic Lé Petit Pink Suede
It's hard to beat a classic. Give the gift of roses that will last an entire year without needing to be watered. Choose from different sizes and colors. Venus ET Fleur offers everything from classic red to tie-die roses and custom arrangements.
Cozy Earth Women's Long Sleeve Stretch-Knit Bamboo Pajama Set
Give Mom the comfiest sleep of her life with these ultra-soft pajamas from Cozy Earth. They're chic enough to wear around the house on lazy days (sometimes you just don't want to change out of your PJs—you know the feeling) and they're super breathable so Mom can wear them year-round.
P.S. If Mom is a hot sleeper, there's also a short sleeve set that we love just as equally.
Vitruvi Stone Diffuser
If your mom is into aromatherapy, pair this hand-crafted stone diffuser with her go-to essential oil for a lovely home upgrade. Plus, it looks great as a piece of décor when it's not in use, and its water basin, which is made of BPA-free plastic, is super easy to clean.
ghd Platinum+ Styler
This high-end, multi-tasking hot tool would make a great gift on its own, but the brand is now offering personalization as well. Put your Mom’s initials or birthdate on there; either way, the personalized touch is sure to be appreciated.
Jenny Patinkin Nephrite Jade Petite Face Roller
Think of this as an upgrade on the classic jade roller; it’s made with white nephrite jade, which promotes healing, positivity, balance, and inner peace, specifically. The itty-bitty size is also great for travel or to use on smaller areas like around the eyes and mouth.
Dermaflash Luxe Anti-Aging Dermaplaning Exfoliation Device
This dermaplaning tool removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells to reveal fresh, youthful skin. The kit includes four blades, a mini cleanser, and moisturizer.
Dr. Dennis Gross Spectralite Faceware Pro
This medical-grade mask does everything from smooth wrinkles, kill bacteria, and repair cell damage. LED light therapy helps brighten skin and boost collagen, and Mom can reap all those benefits right from home.
What Our Testers Say
"After about 45 days, I noticed how the texture of my skin completely changed from bumpy to very smooth." — Ashley Rebecca, Product Tester
Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite BodyWare Pro
Speaking of Dr. Dennis Gross' light therapy devices, this one—for body skin—just launched and promises to address acne, signs of aging, and even inflammatory pain. The coolest part? It molds to fit any body part, from arms to chest to back. If you really want to splurge, gift Mom the face mask above paired with the body device so she can have all her bases covered.
Sakara Chocolate Trio
Go ahead and find us a woman who doesn’t want to get chocolate as a gift. And yes, technically we still consider this a beauty and wellness gift, given that this set contains probiotic, nootropic, and beauty-boosting chocolates. (That yes, are still totally delish.)
Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum
This scent isn't new, but it has certainly stood the test of time. And really, why mess with something that just works? Both spicy and woodsy, this bestselling perfume is a favorite of Byrdie senior editor Hallie Gould. The heady mix of leather, musk, cardamom, iris, and violet is unique and intoxicating without being overwhelming. A true classic.
If Mom is into fitness and wellness trackers, gift her the one that's all the rage right now. This one doubles as jewelry, and it's already won over the hearts of WNBA players (who use it for training purposes) and celebs like Jessica Alba and Cindy Crawford. When worn regularly, it can track and collect data to inform overall health—resting heart rate, body temperature, heart rate variability (HRV), and respiratory rate. It will also give snapshots of each night's rest, which can be viewed on a smartphone.
Rose Box Heart Box
This heart-shaped box full of fresh roses (sourced from Ecuador) is one of the most thoughtful ways to show a Mom in your life that you care—whether that's your own Mom, a friend, wife, or sibling. You don't have to worry about whether or not the receiver has a green thumb; these flowers are low maintenance—or no maintenance rather. They don't need to be watered at all, and they'll last a full year. Best of all, you can customize your box color, as well as rose shade. Pick from a wide range of pinks, blues, even silver and gold.
Augustinus Bader The Cream
Inspired by 30 years of research, this breakthrough cream is beloved by celebrities, skincare fanatics, and Team Byrdie. Ultra-lightweight and insanely hydrating, it's sure to make your Mom a fan as well once she sees how soft and supple her skin feels after use.
Tata Harper Beauty Sleep Set
We love Tata Harper's Mother’s Day set, a duo of their richest moisturizer, Crème Riche, and calming aromatherapy oil, Bedtime Treatment. It's a two-step routine that will set Mom (and her skin) up for a truly relaxing slumber.
Yves Saint Laurent All Over Glow Powder
Inspired by the brand’s best-selling highlighter/concealer/corrector, this peachy-hued pressed powder is an equally great multi-tasker. Use it as a highlighter or finishing powder; the shade blends and works perfectly on almost all complexions.
Lumiere Skyn HyperGlo Skin Rejuvenation System
Behold—the gift that will have Mom tossing all of her anti-aging creams and serums. This unique device utilizes LED light therapy to target the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and rough texture. Yes it's pricey, but when you consider the amount of money that will be saved on facials, treatments, and expensive lotions and potions, Mom will agree it's well worth the Benjamins—and she'll love you for it.
SmoothSkin Pure IPL Hair Removal Device
If you've ever heard of Mom complaining about hair removal—waxing and shaving can be tedious and time-consuming, after all—reach for this FDA-cleared at-home hair removal device that is a total gamechanger. Mom can treat her whole body in less than 10 minutes, and with continued use, she'll notice less hair growth. Win-win.
Face Gym Hyaluronic Roller Dissolving Microneedling Tool
When a limited edition supply of this roller initially dropped, it sold out within six hours. It's made of 3,000 dissolving microneedles filled with pro-grade hyaluronic acid and peptides that, when glided over the skin, offer total cellular rejuvenation. The brand calls it a mini boot camp for the face, and that sounds just about right.
Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3
Give her one bottle of this, and you’ll be giving her good hair days for weeks to come. The concentrated treatment—which works on all hair types—strengthens hair from within in, making it look notably softer, smoother, and shinier after every use.
Lord Jones Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer
Pick this up for the Mom who is all up on the CBD trend. Not only does the cream contain 250mg of hemp-derived CBD oil, but it’s also specially formulated to soothe stressed skin. And, it comes with a golden spoon to help you apply just the right amount. Enough said.
Venus ET Fleur MAISON Rose Blanche Candle
Housed in a gorgeous porcelain glass, this candle makes a beautiful addition to any space. The scent of freesia and Damascena roses is accentuated by geranium and zesty cinnamon, helping transform any room into a garden.
Aceology Ice Globe Facial Massagers
Whether she uses these alone or with her favorite serum, these globes can reduce puffiness, boost circulation, and accelerate product absorption. Not to mention they’re great for helping to treat headaches and muscle tension, an attribute any Mom will appreciate.
UE FITS Earbuds
Earbuds make a great gift, and these are especially special because they are the world's first custom fit, truly wireless buds. One minute is all it takes to get these molded to the unique shape of your ears, ensuring a secure fit and utmost comfort. And the best part? Mom has these all to herself; because of that custom fit, they are hers—and hers only.
goop Beauty G.Tox Ultimate Dry Brush
A sophisticated shower tool that’s sure to leave skin soft and glowing, this is ideal for any Mom who’s all about detoxing and self-care.
Aquis Rapid Dry Lisse Hair Turban
If you’re searching for a gift that you know she’ll actually use every day, look no further. With special moisture-wicking fabric, this cuts drying time by up to 50 percent, all while minimizing wet hair-induced damage simultaneously. It comes in nine super cute colors and patterns, too.
Sara Happ Luxe Lip Trio
This hydrating lip trio features a lip scrub to exfoliate lips and two glosses to add moisture and shine to an otherwise dry pout.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge Scented Hair Mist
Perfumes are great, but for a more surprising type of scent gift, go with a scented hair perfume, like this one. The strong yet elegant scent, a mix of jasmine and cedarwood, is sure to please, and the bottle will look gorgeous displayed on her vanity.
Revive Fermitif Hand Renewal Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15
If ever there were a time when hand cream was a more appreciated—or necessary—gift, this is it. This particular option checks the necessary boxes of offering plenty of (non-greasy) hydration, along with SPF and brightening agents to protect the skin. Still, its subtle rose scent and pretty packaging make it totally gift-worthy.
Guru Nanda Halo XL Humidifier & Essential Oil Diffuser
Mom can use this device in multiple ways—as a humidifier and an essential oil diffuser. The aromatherapy and beauty benefits can't be beaten. The moisture can help keep skin hydrated and supple while the scents of calming lavender, soothing peppermint, and more waft through the air for a real treat.
Kibou Mom Belt Bag
If there's a new Mom or Mom-to-be on your gifting list, look no further than this belt bag. It's the chicest solution to bidding farewell to clunky and heavy diaper bags which weigh down strollers and, not to mention, arms, shoulders, and backs. This one fits comfortably around the waist, has a built-in compartment to hold wet wipes, as well as a detachable changing pad that unfolds from the back. There's room for credit cards, pacifiers, and more too.
MUTHA Body Oil
Yes, the name is totally apropos, but we’d choose this heavenly hydrator even if it had a different name. A hypoallergenic blend of 100% botanical seed oils makes it super moisturizing, yet it still absorbs quickly, leaving skin ultra-soft and glowy.
Nails Inc. Crystals Made Me Do It Nail Polish Duo
Can a mani ward off bad vibes? Here, you get a rose-quartz infused polish plus an amethyst-infused top coat that is meant to do just that.
Chantecaille Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum
This hydrating serum glides onto skin, infusing it with the perfect amount of hydration and plumping fine lines, too. At the same time, it offers protection against skin-damaging blue light, making this choice for the Mom who is always in front of her computer.
Otherland Mom’s Favorites Bundle
We love this candle brand, both as much for their addicting scent combos as much as the whimsical and colorful packaging. This trio features Canopy, a verdant green fragrance, Chandelier, a mix of effervescent citrus and deep leather, and Daybed, a floral with notes of peony and rose. In other words, there’s an option for any and all of your mom’s fragrance preferences.
Clinique Cult Classics
Gift mom a set of Clinique's fan favorites: mascara, eyeliner, cleansing balm, and lipstick, all of which are paraben-, phthalate-, and fragrance-free.
