This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 14, which gives you plenty of time to consider your options. Think about her interests: Does she love gardening, camping, exercise or cooking? Is she looking forward to any big summer travel plans? If you’re stumped, there are a lot of good staples to lean on, like flowers, candles, perfume and jewelry. And don’t worry, we found all the best options for you. Or you can get her something that she’s able to use every day, like a new piece of tech, luxurious loungewear or a workout accessory.

So you want to get her a present she’ll actually enjoy? (Aside from the flowers you’re already getting delivered to her, of course.) We found more than 56 Mother’s Day gift ideas to get you going, from newly-released products to fan-favorite classics that are sure to please.

This viral weekender bag will make her summer travel plans a breeze. It easily attaches to your rolling suitcase, has a separate compartment for shoes and is oh-so-stylish.

If she’s no stranger to the gym, Lululemon’s align tank is the gold standard of activewear, thanks to its buttery soft material and supportive construction.

Best Gift for the Summer

RTIC 32-Quart Ultra-Light Cooler

Whether she loves a tailgate or a weekend out in the woods, this RTIC cooler will keep everything ice cold in the summer heat. Plus, it’s available in a new Mother’s Day colorway.

If you’re looking for something beyond a traditional, perishable bouquet, Venus Et Fleur’s beautiful roses are preserved to last up to a year without much maintenance at all. Shop the brand’s Mother’s Day collection for more inspo.

THE BEST FLOWER DELIVERY SERVICES, ACCORDING TO OUR EDITORS

There used to be a 1,500-person waitlist for this pitcher from the mid-century brand Dansk. Gift her this beautiful collectible and it will be a staple on the dining table during family gatherings.

With 8 face treatments in one device, Therabody’s latest venture is a great way to give mom lasting care for her face.

READ MORE ABOUT THE NEW THERAFACE PRO

Skip the stuffy in-person jewelry shops and buy her something simple and timeless from Mejuri that she can incorporate into her everyday wear. Plus, it’s a pretty affordable way to gift her diamonds.

Jo Malone’s scents are unique and luxurious. If she doesn’t wear perfume, then this candle is a great way to go.

THESE ARE OUR FAVORITE CANDLES

Brightland’s olive oil expressions are more about the flavor of the oil than acting as a means to an end. Heirloom olives are picked and pressed in California with quality in mind. As a result, these oils sport tasting notes that read more like something you’d find on a wine label.

There’s a new and improved Always Pan on the market, and this is the perfect time to gift her one before she gets influenced to buy one herself.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE NEW ALWAYS PAN

If you’re going the route of a bunch of small gifts rather than one large one, then this tinted, buttery lip balm should be one of them.

If she’s traveling this summer, then this slim, compact leather jewelry holder will be a great way to help her stay organized in style.

Maybe the full-strapped Chaco isn’t quite for mom. But a hip slide that has a corrective footbed and a host of fresh colors? Check.

If she’s a mom who loves to relax — and as an added bonus is a big Margo Price fan — then these CBG joints will have her chilling out in no time.

READ OUR REVIEW OF DAD GRASS

Can a mom have too many bags? We don’t think so. Whether mom loves the farmer’s market or needs another bag for trips to the beach, this is the one.

Lunya’s luxurious silk lounge and sleepwear sets are perfect for the mom who needs to get the most out of her nightly sleep. Show her you care about her rest and relaxation. Plus, be sure to mention that the silk is completely washable.

If you won’t be with your mom on Mother’s Day or just want to be sure that you don’t forget to pick up flowers, then Urban Stems is easily the best delivery option. Your flowers will get there on time, and you’ll have a ton of unique options to choose from like these vibrant lilies.

Skincare is also a good idea, especially if you go for a high-end product that she might not splurge on herself. And this luxurious body cream will keep her skin hydrated and smelling like she’s on a tropical vacation.

If she loves a good sauna, then bring one to her with this revolutionary at-home sauna blanket.

If she’s on the hunt for an accurate yet discreet fitness tracking device, then this one designed to look and feel like a real ring will be a great addition to her workouts.

EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT THE NEWEST OURA RING

We’re heading into summer, and everyone could use a good sunscreen. And this invisible, lightweight one will keep her protected no matter what activity.

THESE ARE THE BEST SUNSCREENS

For the mom who practically never leaves the house during the summer without a packed cooler in tow, the Yeti Roadie will knock her socks off. This one is big enough to hold up to 76 cans, tall enough for wine bottles if that’s her preference and has wheels to save her back.

READ MORE ABOUT THE BEST COOLERS

For the mom who loves a fun — and maybe even funky — tablescape, this Dusen Dusen pepper grinder will be a hoot.

She deserves the best. And if you buy a Dyson, you know you’re getting the most effective, splurge-worthy hair product you can buy.

THESE ARE THE BEST HAIR DRYERS YOU CAN BUY

If she loves chocolate but also likes to study an ingredient list, then this set made with vegan ingredients and single-origin cacao beans will not disappoint.

We’d be impressed if she managed to avoid buying a belt bag for this long. Whether she’s never taken the plunge or is slowly building a collection, this one is a no-brainer.

THESE ARE OUR FAVORITE CROSSBODY BAGS

Summer is coming and that means more time in the sun. Keep her skin protected with a hat equally suited for the beach or the garden.

If she’s alcohol-free but enjoys a nice mocktail, this variety pack from Recess will give her those flavors without any of the hangover.

Lounging around the house has never been this comfortable. Pick up this Brooklinen robe for a mom who likes the finer things.

THESE ARE THE BEST ROBES YOU CAN BUY

For the mom who loves cooking and family recipes, get her one engraved on a cutting board as a functional keepsake.

Filled with nostalgia and protein, this cereal is perfect for the mom who has dietary restrictions, like sensitivities to grain, gluten and sugar.

Set the Casper Glow on a bedside table and it will gently dim as she drifts off and brighten as she wakes up. She can manually adjust light levels by spinning it, or she can flip it on its head and it will turn off. It’s intuitive, strangely fun and genuinely useful.

It feels like just yesterday we were all obsessed with a Negroni Sbagliato — with Prosecco in it, of course. Whether she’s a big fan or loves hopping on a trend, this premade set will be great for toasting on the day.

For the mom who loves well-designed homewares, this compact, whimsical toaster might just be her new favorite.

HERE ARE SOME OTHER GREAT TOASTER OPTIONS

Bracelets are a good option if she doesn’t already has a go-to necklace or pair of earrings for everyday. And this diamond one from Mejuri is simple and elegant enough to be a crowd-pleaser.

A little luxury that shows you care, this calming shower mist will have her feeling like she’s in a spa in her own bathroom.

You can never go wrong with cashmere, and this chic wrap will be perfect for cool spring nights to come.

If your mom loves her coffee, there is no better way to drink it than from a handmade clay mug. The hottest mug on the internet is tailor-made to fit an Aeropress and holds up to 12 ounces.

THESE ARE OUR FAVORITE MUGS

Now, we don’t suggest this as the only gift you give; but if she’s still looking for an alternative detergent after the Laundress recall, then Brooklinen’s latest release is a fantastic option.

HERE ARE THE BEST-SMELLING LAUNDRY DETERGENTS

This 13-inch roller features a multi-density exterior that supports muscle recovery, pain relief and improved flexibility. It also comes with access to TriggerPoint’s online video library, where experts show how to roll for optimal results.

This travel-friendly heated massager will help her recover from workouts, stressful days and summer travel.

The 55+ Best Mother's Day Gifts | Gear Patrol (44)Aesop

For the Mom With Good Taste and Dry Skin

Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Balm

This hydrating body balm is blended with carrot and aloe vera to hydrate the skin. Formulated with geranium leaf and citrus extracts, the scent alone is worth the price — this is one she won’t want to share.

For the mom who loves a kitchen gadget, this immersion blender set will have her trying tons of new recipes.

Help her relax with one of the best weighted blankets in the game.

THESE ARE THE BEST WEIGHTED BLANKETS FOR A BETTER NIGHT’S SLEEP

We could all use a break from cooking meals — mom especially. Gift amounts start at $60 and increase in value from there.

WE REVIEWED THE BEST MEAL KIT DELIVERY SERVICES

No kitchen condiment collection is complete without some quality chili oil. Gift this set from the world-famous brand Momof*cku, and she’ll have a chili crunch for all her sweet and savory dishes.

HERE ARE OUR FAVORITE CHILI CRISPS

The 55+ Best Mother's Day Gifts | Gear Patrol (49)The Sill

For the Mom Who Loves Indoor Plants

The Sill Petite Orange Orchid

Two things on buying your mother a plant: it better arrive potted and ready to display, and it better be something nicer than a succulent.

FIND OTHER PLACES TO BUY PLANTS ONLINE

Yoga mats are a great pick because regardless of where the workout is taking place, having a personal mat is the best (and most sanitary) option.

READ MORE ABOUT THE BEST YOGA MATS

A box of chocolates is always an easy gift, but what if she doesn’t like chocolate? Then we present you with an artisanal cheese box that is sure to be a hit, whether she’s hosting or making a charcuterie board for one.

Elevate her morning cup with this beautiful kettle that has an easy-to-hold ergonomic design and gooseneck spout for easy pouring.

THESE ARE THE BEST GOOSENECK KETTLES

One of the trendiest microcurrent tools in the game, the NuFace allows her to sculpt her face and tackle the appearance of wrinkles. If she’s really into caring for her skin, chances are she’s had her eye on this and its three attachments for a while.

A ludicrously capacious bag if we ever saw one, this classic canvas tote comes in nine colors, four sizes and is customizable. Perfect for beach days or picnics in the park this summer.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BEST TOTE BAGS

This tiled viral welcome mat is completely customizable for any occasion, holiday or season. Bonus points if you buy a tile set and decorate the mat for Mother’s Day.

Amazon’s Kindle checks a bunch of boxes. It has a built-in backlight so it’s easy to read inside and outside. It has Bluetooth, in case she wants to use wireless headphones and listen to audiobooks. And it’s under $100.

Is mom looking for a new hobby or maybe just wants to learn something new? Let her decide what interests to cultivate and explore.

Whether she works from home or just loves a lounge set, these cashmere joggers are as luxurious as it gets.

While the Theragun Mini might not be as powerful as the Pro, it still provides the same percussions per minute range (2,400 PPM). The smaller force is actually better for times when a deep massage isn’t required. Plus, it’s portable and can work out knots and aches on the fly.

THESE ARE THE BEST PERCUSSION MASSAGE GUNS
