Best for Lazy Mornings
Weezie Short Patterned Robe
Weezie weezietowels.com

How can something be so cozy and also light as air? Weezie’s Short Robe is exactly that. It’s the perfect thing for Mom to wear in the warmer months as she sips her coffee on the deck or does her makeup at the vanity.

This plush, short-sleeve robe comes in seven pretty patterns (plus white) and has two deep pockets. Also, the tie is actually attached so it won't go missing — genius! And since it's for your mom, you should totally go the extra mile and monogram the robe for $15 more.

For the Woman With Strong Sheet Preferences
Eucalyptus Sheet Set
Sijo sijohome.com

There are those who love crisp, starched bed sheets and then there are those who prefer a soft and silky feel. If your mom is in the former category, she'll probably love the percale sheets from 10 Grove or Parachute, but if she's not, gift her Sijo's Eucalyptus Set, stat.

They're buttery-soft with a cooling, sateen-like sheen, while also having enough warmth to keep her cozy on cold nights (or in a bedroom with the AC cranked). It's true that these sheets aren't cheap, and they don't feel that way, either.

21 of 61
Best for the Caffeine Queen
‘If Found In Microwave Please Return To Mom’ Mug
StagandPeachCo etsy.com

Need we say more? Just make sure you heat up this ceramic mug for an extra 30 seconds before returning it to Mom!

22 of 61
Best for the Outdoorsy Mom
Hunter Garden Clogs
Hunter shopterrain.com

Good garden shoes are designed to be basically indestructible, but if the tread and lining are completely worn out on her trusty decade-old pair, we say it's time to treat her to a well-deserved upgrade.

Hunter's Garden Clogs have the same rubber exterior as their iconic rain boots but are lined with neoprene to help keep feet warm and dry. Reviewers tout that they're easy to slip on and off, and that they actually look cute enough to wear out and about! Bet she'd never say that about her old pair.

23 of 61
Best Speaker for Indoors or Out
Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Ultimate Ears walmart.com

Finally, she no longer has to play music out of her tiny phone speaker while she's cooking or lounging outside. In terms of style and sound quality, the MEGABOOM 3 is one of the best Bluetooth speakers that we've ever used. 

It has an IP67 waterproof rating, 20 hours of battery life, and 360-degree sound that sounds crisp and clear, no matter where Mom is sitting. It can easily pair with her devices, and there's even a handy app from Ultimate Ears that can help her customize the treble and bass even more to her linking (if she wants).

24 of 61
Best for the EVOO-Obsessed
Kostarina Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kostarina kosterina.com

Mix up your go-to bottle for gifting this year and opt for Kostarina's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil for Mother's Day. It is one of the most drinkably good olive oils there is.

Made from olives that were cold-pressed in the Peloponesse region of Greece, this olive oil has a lightly floral and fresh aroma, and the taste is light, earthy, and citrusy. She'll want to savor every drop of it with some delicious crusty bread.

25 of 61
Best for the Minimalist Mom
Piper Phone Sling
Dagne Dover dagnedover.com

A more upscale version of the wildly popular Harper Crossbody Bag, this Phone Sling from Dagne Dover helps Mom travel lightly.

With a genuine leather exterior (available in five chic shades), it feels as luxe as it looks. The mini purse has a small pocket, two card slots, and, of course, space for her phone. It's 6.5 inches tall, so it'll comfortably hold an iPhone 12, but not an iPhone 12 Pro Max.

26 of 61
For Wearing on Casual Days
Mama Bird Fitted Crewneck T-Shirt
TheBeeandTheFox etsy.com

You may have left the nest, but she'll always be your mama bird. This 100% cotton tee from The Bee and The Fox is available in two neutral shades and five sizes. Reviewers adore it for its soft feel and cute lettering, though they advise sizing up since it runs small.

27 of 61
Best for the Home Chef
Larkspur Bib Apron
Rendall Co. rendallco.com

Mom's cooking is restaurant-quality, so shouldn't she have the best gear that money can buy? 

Rendall Co. is a brand that got their start outfitting the pros in the service industry, and their meticulously crafted cotton denim bib aprons are both rugged enough to help protect against spills and splatters while looking utterly stylish.

28 of 61
Best for Simplifying Her Spice Rack
FinaMill Gift Set
FinaMill amazon.com

Rather than buying separate spice mills or a single spice grinder that she'll have to clean out between each use, the editor-favorite FinaMill allows her to use the same grinder with multiple pods containing whole spices without any cross-contamination.

This battery-operated grinder only has one courseness setting, but it comes with three grind pods that can be endlessly refilled with her favorite spices. For those who like a medley of fresh-ground spices in each dish, it's a super clever solution.

29 of 61
Best for the Coolest Porch on the Block
SunBriteTV Weatherproof Outdoor 43-Inch Veranda TV
SunBriteTV amazon.com

You might want to go in with your siblings on this Mother's Day gift, but if you want to get a show-stopper present for the woman who has pretty much everything, then this outdoor TV is it. 

This model is up to 50% brighter than a standard TV, and it has an antireflective display, so it'll look bright and clear whether it's placed in a covered or open area. It's also entirely waterproof — even its ports and remote.

30 of 61
Best for Pacing Herself
Fitbit Charge 4 Fitness and Activity Tracker
Fitbit amazon.com
$98.95 (34% off)

Your mom doesn't have to be a fitness junkie to appreciate getting a Fitbit Charge 4 for Mother's Day. Just using it at a very basic level will help to arm her with knowledge about her health that she shouldn't have otherwise. By strapping it to her wrist, she can monitor her heart rate, steps, calories burned, and even her quality of sleep.

Beyond that, the Charge 4 offers over 20 goal-based workout modes, syncing with her smartphone for notifications, and a feature-packed app that allows for plenty of customization.
