presents for mom - Mother's Day gift ideas 2024

Homebody mama, working mom, cool-friend momma -- whichever type of mother you're blessed with, we have fantastic Mother's Day gift ideas for you! We picked these presents to specifically suit your mom's personality and interests, helping you decide on the ideal present for her. Read on and you just might find that one special gift she'll love!


1. The homemaker mom

Home-cooked meals, tidy rooms, hands-on parenting. When you have a full-time stay-at-home mother (SAHM), these are perks you can be thankful for. Your homemaker mom works just as hard as any loving parent, and she shouldn't feel like she's just in the background of your life. This is your chance to make her feel super special!

Our Mother's Day gift for a stay-at-home mom: A premium spa membership or day package to give her that much-needed R-and-R.


2. The working mom

Whether she's working 9-to-5 or being a girl-boss in her own business, a mom with a career juggles many roles, not least of which is motherhood. The ideal gift for her would be something useful in her occupation or something that would empower her in her busy lifestyle.

Our Mother's Day gift for a working mom: A specialty coffee subscription -- simple but packs a punch for the on-the-go momma.

3. The elegant mom

How does she do it? She puts together amazing meals for the family, and still manages to look put-together after all that. Her refined taste shows in your home's decor, in her parenting choices, as well as in her wardrobe. When it comes to etiquette and grace, she's the first person you (and everyone else) thinks of.

Our Mother's Day gift for an elegant mom: A lovely accessory made by a local artisan -- or by you!


4. The sporty mom

Be it tennis, swimming, hiking, or running, your mother's athletic pursuits are #fitnessgoals. Your childhood was probably filled with sports and games, and she likely continues to inspire people with this message: motherhood is not a limitation to your healthy interests!

Our Mother's Day gift for a sporty mom: A new trusty sweater she'll pretty much live in.

5. The bestfriend mom

"I'm not a regular mom. I'm a cool mom," says Mrs. George in the movie Mean Girls. The bestfriend mom is the envy of your peers. She listens kindly to you, communicates openly with you, and even sings along to Taylor Swift with you. Sleepovers were welcome in your childhood. Shopping trips together are actually fun. Happy hour cocktails optional.

Our Mother's Day gift for a cool mom: A mom-and-me art piece that just might make her tear up!

6. The prayerful mom

With strong faith and a Bible verse for every occasion, prayerful parents show their love by providing you with God-centered guidance at each turn. Regardless of religious denomination, your devout mother would appreciate a gift that reflects her faith.

Our Mother's Day gift for a religious mom: Her favorite Bible verse or prayer turned into a wall picture.

7. The artsy mom

Whether your mama paints the loveliest pictures, crafts the most interesting handmade objects, or writes life-changing books, you probably grew up in a unique and soulful home. Now, what present do you give to an artistic parent? Something one-of-a-kind, of course!

Our Mother's Day gift for an artsy mom: A print compilation of her best works, to be proudly displayed in her living room or studio.


8. The smarty-pants mom

Mothers who work in academia, science, engineering, or math are just stellar! Historically, these brainy fields weren't very open to women, but in recent decades, more ladies have proven that the world needs their intellect, too. Changing the world while raising kids -- amazing!

Our Mother's Day gift for a smart mom: A custom-made monogram sign to hang in her office. Perfect for a professional video conferencing background!

9. The spiritual mom

She meditates in the mornings and does yoga in the afternoon. She's got crystals on her nightstand and uses only eco-friendly products. She probably taught you to love animals and hug trees when you were little. Earth Momma is one serene soul.

Our Mother's Day gift for a spiritual mom: A daily self-care package featuring a meditation book with her favorite scented candle.

10. The social mom

Social mom is everyone's friend. No matter how busy her calendar is, your mom lights up any room she enters. She brings the conversation, the jokes, the juiciest updates. She's mastered the art of the potluck and the science of party-planning. Martha Stewart's got nothing on her.

Our Mother's Day gift for a social mom: A custom-made throw pillow to wow her guests when she's hosting.

11. The new mom

If you have a friend or significant other who's new to motherhood, you know she deserves a helpful Mother's Day gift. You can splurge by gifting her with a supportive device or equipment, like a high-quality sterilizer or massager. However, there are affordable presents that new mommy will appreciate, too.

Our Mother's Day gift for a new mom: A cozy, snuggly blanket personalized with her baby's name. Practical enough for warmth, lovely enough as an heirloom!

12. The caring grandmom

Lucky are you if you've enjoyed the care and generosity of a grandmother. From her endless supply of cookies to her timeless life advice, she just overflows with goodness, making life feel a little lighter. Technically, she's a mom, too, so don't forget to get her something for Mother's Day!

Our Mother's Day gift for a loving grandma: A huggable posture-friendly pillow featuring all the names of her grandchildren.
