For a mother with multiple kids, nothing will touch them more than a beautiful sterling silver birthstone necklace. You can personalize it easily by choosing which stones to include—one for each child’s birthday.

This necklace is subtle and understated enough to be worn every day. What mom doesn’t want to have their children close to their heart wherever they go? This is a fantastic gift idea from the kids, of course, but it’s also a wonderful spouse or partner gift for the mother of your children.

Stanley Tumbler

If you’re looking for a gift for the TikTok-obsessed mama, look no further than the coveted Stanley Tumbler. There are plenty of competitors out there these days, and many of them have great features and are becoming more popular. But, no one has made it to Stanley’s level just yet.

The tumblers come in a variety of sizes and colors, so you can select the perfect one for anyone’s style. They’re well-insulated and will keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for hours. Plus, they hold up to 40 ounces to keep mom hydrated and on-trend all at once.

Is your mom a wizard in the kitchen? Does she have the best “secret” recipes your family has ever known? Or, maybe her mom was a great cook and she misses the dishes she grew up with. A personalized cutting board with a handwritten family recipe is comforting, practical, nostalgic, and will foster happy memories every time it’s used.

You’ll need to have the recipe on hand for this gift if you want it to be a surprise, and be sure to order this one now as there is more of a wait with this gift than the others.

Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser

Let’s be honest, being a mom is a full-time job. If your mom is prone to stress, or you know they’re overworked and maybe even a little burnt out, consider a gift that can help them relax.

Aromatherapy is nothing new. Its positive effects have been known for years. But, today, it’s easier than ever to take advantage of calming scents like lavender and eucalyptus, thanks to essential oil diffusers. This diffuser can be used in the bedroom, bathroom, living room, or anywhere your mother might want to spend some time practicing self-care.

Guided Journal

A mother and daughter look at a journal, and a woman holds a journal in her hand.

Do you ever wish you could’ve known your mom when she was a child or teenager? Do you love hearing stories about her past? The “Tell Me a Story, Mom” keepsake journal gives your mother the chance to talk openly about her life and experiences. The journal has prompts, so she doesn’t have to come up with ideas on her own.

As a bonus, these books are also available for dads and grandparents, so you’ve pretty much got the holiday season covered this year.

Yes, it’ll help her stay on top of her schedule, any kiddo emergencies that arise, as well as any communications that come through, but it also can be an exciting way to goal set and get organized.

When function meets fun, you get the best gifts.

Just because time is running out to choose something doesn’t mean you can’t find a Mother’s Day gift that’s meaningful, sentimental, and shows exactly how much the mother figure(s) in your life mean to you.
