NY Mag: All of the Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Perfect presents for every kind of mom in one handy guide

Mother’s Day — which falls on May 14 this year — is this weekend, so it’s crunch time to find the perfect present for your mom, grandma, mother-in-law, or mother figure in your life. Whether you’re celebrating one mom or several generations of them, we’ve curated a lineup of gift guides for each and every type of mother on your list.

To get the lowdown on the things she’ll love most, we consulted actresses, beauty gurus, singers, and chefs — many of whom are at varying stages of motherhood — to bring you dozens of standout gift ideas. We’ve included many mom-approved Strategist favorites — some that we own ourselves or have given to our own moms and others that are longtime top sellers on our site. Finally, we made sure to choose gifts at every price point, so you can spoil your mom with something special no matter your budget. Most of the items below will arrive on time if you place your order today, though we’ve noted any possible exceptions. Note that we’ve updated this post for the last time, so pay close attention to stock and shipping times. And, if you want to stay on top of all of our gift coverage, sign up for our newsletter and you won’t miss a thing.
