Spring has a sneaky way of showing up when you least expect it, and honestly, in my opinion, so does Mother's Day. Last week, I was shocked to realize it's almost May, and Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 12, this year, which means time is running out to get your mom, partner, or even best mom friend a gift this year. 

Another tough call? Figuring out which Mother's Day gift to get. After all, you want to get something that'll cater to her personal taste, while also keeping her up to speed on all the latest interior design trends and collaborations that have piqued the H&G staff's interest this year. 

For instance, some moms are all about that plant life, while others enjoy hosting and would benefit from some pretty picnic essentials as the days get warmer. Others still want to cozy up and read with a good throw blanket and book, and personally, my mom wants to add some new fragrances to her home with a set of candles. Essentially, we're all spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the best gift for our moms this Mother's Day, which is why I did all of the heavy work for you.

This past weekend, I looked through every home retailer I love to find gifts for every type of mom, from the luxe to the simple, and the minimal to the eclectic. I found mirrors, plants, throws, trinket dishes, and even some fun summer table decor ideas that you can choose from in order to find the absolute best gift for your mom this Mother's Day, so all you have to do is add to cart.

No matter whether you’re celebrating one mom or several generations of them, this curated list of gift ideas should help make your search for the perfect Mother’s Day gift just a little easier. From plant and bedding ideas to small home decor touches that can elevate a home with ease, these gifts are just the thing to bring a smile to your mom’s face this Mother’s Day.
