25+ Gifts for Mom Guaranteed to Make Her Smile This Year
Finding the perfect gifts for mom can sometimes be tough. You want to get her everything she wants…but you also want to get her something that will let her know just how much you care.
So let me make it easy for you. I polled my audience of over 100,000 moms and asked them point-blank what they would love to unwrap this year.
The answer? Keep scrolling to find out!

For the Busy Mom
Let’s start with the busy mom. The mom who’s juggling a lot. The mom who just wants something…anything…to make her life a little easier.
How about a coffee pot guaranteed to brew the perfect cup of jo.
Meet the Technivorm Moccamaster, a busy mom’s secret weapon to a quick and potent caffeine fix first thing in the morning.
Another thing busy moms struggle with is keeping that cup of coffee hot…and a temperature control mug is the perfect solution!
Busy moms can be a little forgetful, and an Apple Watch is the perfect gift to help them stay on track. They’ll always have their schedule on hand (ha, puns!) and can have Siri remember everything that pops into their head throughout the day.
Speaking of forgetful, us busy moms have a pretty bad habit of not knowing where stuff is 😬
Help the busy mom in your life out with the Tile Essentials series. All they have to do is attach them to the stuff they need to find a little quicker, sync up their phone, and get all that wasted time back. It’s almost like you’re giving them two gifts 😉
Another fantastic item on the gifts for mom list is a Roomba. Because we’re always on the go and don’t have time to vacuum every day…even though we probably should (kids are gross).
So get them a Roomba to take that task off their never-ending to-do list.
Speaking of on the go, another great gift idea for busy moms is a pair of reliable earbuds. I can’t tell you how many pairs I’ve gone through over the years, and when I’m out running around, I like to multitask and catch up on my podcasts.
So get the busy mom in your life a gift that will last this year with a pair of Apple Airpods…they’re totally worth it.
Most of us haven’t been running around as much this year, though (thanks #covid). And do you know what we really need?
A pair of noise canceling headphones so we can at least pretend like we don’t have kids screaming at us 24/7 🤷♀️
And finally, something every busy mom needs this year is a planner for everything.
Work meetings. Remote school schedules. Virtual appointments.
It’s a lot to stay on top of (even if it doesn’t seem that way). So help the busy mom in your life out with one of the best planners out there!
For the On the Go Mom
Next, let’s take a look at some of the best gifts for mom when she’s on the go. Because mamas are usually so busy from all the running around they have to do!
And the first gift for the mom on the go is the Revlon Hair Dryer Brush that everyone is obsessed with right now.
And with good reason.
This brush dries and styles your hair in one step, helping that busy mom get out the door a whole lot faster.
I mean, who doesn’t like getting stuff like that done in less time?
The next step to getting out the door faster is by having a no-fuss wardrobe.
My pick? The SPANX Faux Leather Leggings.
These leggings are amazing. They’re thinning. They’re lifting. And they’re super freaking cute.
Any mom would appreciate a pair (or two) of these in their regular rotation.
Next up is a bag that can go anywhere. Because no busy mom has time to swap purses to accessorize her outfits.
Instead, get her one that holds everything and goes with everything.
Check out this amazing Fossil handbag, it’s guaranteed to do the trick!
And finally, one thing every mom on the go always wants to do is snap pictures of all the cute stuff her kids are doing. And then those adorable pictures stay on our phones, never to see the light of day again.
This way they can capture all the fun moments along the way and print them out to stick on the fridge or mail to grandma.
For the Mom Who Loves to Cook
Next up, let’s take a look at some gifts for moms who love to cook.
And what better gift than their own indoor herb garden.
This way, they always have the herbs they need on hand, and this fantastic starter kit makes it so easy that anyone can do it.
Next up is the Ninja Foodi. And you guys, I’m obsessed with this thing. It has made dinner time soooo much easier around here and I recommend it to everyone.
It’s an instant pot, air fryer, steamer, slow cooker, dehydrator, and yogurt maker all in one.
It’s made my life so much easier and it can make things easier for the mama in your life, too.
Another kitchen favorite is the Le Creuset Dutch Oven.
This best-selling dutch over is another versatile piece that speeds things up in the kitchen.
And if the mom in your life doesn’t have one yet, I guarantee she’d love to have one.
For the Mom Who Likes to Work Out
Next, let’s take a look at some gifts for moms who like to work out.
And first up is the Yoga Club Subscription Box.
This box is amazing. And they make gifting it super easy. You can choose between three different box options and they’ll send it for you.
Everything included is always from the top names in yoga gear, are incredibly comfy, and super cute.
(Pssst…us mamas live in yoga pants, so you really can’t go wrong with this one!)
Next on the list for the best gifts for mom this year is a new yoga mat.
And no ordinary yoga mat will do. They slide all over the place and don’t last that long.
So skip Amazon in this department and go straight to the pros at Lululemon for a mat that she’ll be excited to use.
Or you could get the mom in your life a nice bag to carry everything to and from the gym in style.
I personally love the CALIA by Carrie Underwood Quilted Travel Tote.
It cute and functional, so it’s a total win-win.
For the Cozy Mom
Okay, if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that comfort is king. Or queen 👸
And a cozy gift is one of the best gifts for moms this year.
And what’s cozier than some fleece pajamas?
Check out this pair from Macy’s (they’re on sale right now!).
Or you could get her a pair of the most comfortable slippers she’ll ever wear.
I’m not kidding, UGG slippers are so unbelievably comfortable anyone would be totally stoked to get a pair.
Or you could give her real comfort with a new set of Mulberry silk pillowcases.
We love these because they’re great for our skin and hair and they’re super cozy!
Another top gift for mom is the Big Blanket. Because let’s face it, we never get the blanket to ourselves. So we might as well have one that’s big enough for everyone, right?
You could also gift the mom in your life a weighted blanket.
I honestly thought I was going to hate mine but I absolutely love it.
It also helps a ton with my anxiety!
Similar to the weighted blanket, a weighted robe also harnesses the power of deep touch pressure stimulation to promote relaxation.
Only this version is different in that you can wear it around the house for constant comfort.
Or you could get the mom in your life something to do while she’s lounging about.
Not to say we have a ton of time for lounging, but it’s always nice to have a book on hand for when the kids aren’t all over us.
Enter the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s perfect for those moms who aren’t quite ready to give up their paper books but need the convenience of their entire library at their fingertips.
And the last gift on the gifts for mom guide is a Nintendo Switch…also for some downtime lounging.
Now, these aren’t always easy to find, but they’re soooo worth it.
Already have a Switch? Then check out this list of the top Switch games of 2020 and get stocked up for your winter couch time today!
