How we chose our selection of Mother's Day gifts 

To bring this carefully curated Mother's Day guide to you, we combined our expert knowledge of home appliances and gift-giving. We also pooled the opinions of the mothers of the Homes & Gardens team to establish what they'd love to receive and why. Many of these items are pieces that appear in our buying guides or have standalone reviews too so that you can read more information before you spend your money. 

The Homes & Gardens team have plenty of experience when it comes to writing gift guides for all holidays and seasons, and take care to check the user reviews and ratings of the items we include, as well as the retailers we feature. 

This gift guide has been selected with all types of mothers in mind, from eco-conscious moms to those who love to entertain and bake. There are classic food and flower related gifts, as well as organizers and art to go towards the home. There's also a selection of retailers at the top of this guide which can whisk you away to stores where you can personalize and tailor your gift to reflect your relationship with your mom.

What are typical gifts for Mother's Day?

Flowers have been the essence of Mother's Day celebrations for many years, and show no signs of stopping. With next day delivery service for a range of different blooms from sites like Urban Stems (opens in new tab), 1800 Flowers (opens in new tab) and From You Flowers (opens in new tab), securing a last minute floral present is also unbelievably convenient, and sure to be appreciated. 

Beyond flowers, the typical gift that will suit your mom is dependent on her personal tastes. If she loves to cook or bake, then there are tons of appliances from cold press  juicers to hand mixers to make her kitchen feel like her sanctuary. If your mom loves gifts for her space, then home decor gifts will never go amiss, whilst personalized gifts like towels or dinnerware can show that you've really put thought into your decision. A subscription service such as tea or gift boxes will keep you in high esteem even once Mother's Day has passed, and mean that your mom feels treated every time she receives her delivery.

Who to buy a Mother's Day gift for?

It can be a thorny subject when it comes to who you need to buy a gift for this May 8, especially if you're part of an extended family circle. Whilst those who have a relationship with their mother will usually tick that present off their list, it's more difficult to establish whether to buy gifts for mother-in-laws, grandmothers, wives and partners. 

A good rule to apply for gift giving this Mother's Day is whether you feel like it's appropriate, as it all comes down to your level of comfort with picking out a gift. Rather than being ascribed to rules for who you should buy a gift for, take your time to select a present for those who you consider a mother figure, and for those who you want to shower with appreciation on May 8.
