Whether you’re searching for a gift for a mom-to-be, new mom, seasoned mama, or grandma, this guide has at least one option the mom in your life will appreciate.

Having kids shouldn’t keep you from traveling! The Joolz Aer Stroller (affiliate) folds compact into its own included travel bag and can be stowed in an airplane overhead bin. It’s lightweight (13.4 pounds) without losing a smooth ride and a strong framework. This gorgeous stroller allows for a sturdy upright or laid-back seated position for little ones ages 6 months and up. One of my favorite things about Joolz Aer is that the fabric material is SPF 50 and made from recycled trash! They also plant a tree for each stroller sold.
Tip: Order this stroller as soon as you see it in stock because it sells out quickly!
An easy clean for mom
I don’t need to ask for a show of hands from moms who have kids that make constant messes. It’s unanimous. And if you’re a mom who likes to keep things clean (or maybe just not have such a difficult time cleaning out the car seats after doing a car deep clean because of a mystery smell), the Alya & Co vacuum is a dream come true. You will probably hear squeals of joy.
A creative outlet
Everything in motherhood is temporary — from the warmth of mom’s coffee or tea to how long before the baby becomes a tot and then a big kid. So it’s only fitting that mom gets a moment to create something that helps teach the art of letting go. Buddha Boards (affiliate) are beautiful painting boards that allow for mindfulness, creativity, and meditation as mom paints with water and then watches as her creation disappears as the board dries.
Sweet smells for mom
Sometimes moms just need a minute to smell something nice — especially if you have a few kids in diapers. Fernweh Editions candles are hand-poured in the US using clean-burning soy wax (a renewable resource) that offers a longer burn and lasting scent. And with aromas like Champagne, Dark Chocolate, and Lavender Fields you’ll want the candle to last. I tested out the Dark Chocolate candle and it smells like real chocolate! I’m sensitive to artificial scents so I normally avoid candles and fragrances in general, but the Fernweh Editions Dark Chocolate candle smells so true to a real scent that it doesn’t bother me at all — I can just enjoy it! Fernweh Editions offers individual candles or destination collections with three mini candles — like Creme Brulee, Dark Chocolate, and Champagne for the France Collection.
Party in a box
If the mom in your life enjoys a great glass of wine, bring her a box of Really Good Boxed Wine! At 3 Liters per box (about 4 bottles of wine), Really Good Boxed Wine saves time, money, and the environment without compromising quality. It’s even endorsed by Master Sommelier Andy Myers! Make it a Mother’s Day brunch to remember and BYOW.
Self-Care for mom
Self-care is essential as a mom— you can’t be 100 percent if you’re burnt out, right? The Motherlove Bump to Baby Box—Ready-to-Gift Herbal Gift Box for Expecting Moms includes great pregnancy self-care essentials as well as items for postpartum and baby care! This makes a great last-minute gift for mom since it’s available via Amazon Prime (affiliate).
Bonding gear for mom
This one is for all the expecting and new mamas — get her a carrier! LoveHeld’s Waffle Weave Gavin Ring Sling is the softest linen I have ever felt but it’s sturdy enough to support my 21-pound 6-month-old (or an expecting mama’s growing belly). Ring slings make babywearing a cinch for new parents, too. Help mama’s back and let her get back to doing the things she misses by gifting this!
When you’re a breastfeeding mom, finding the right lactation support is so important. Mamas Milk Bar is made with love in New Zealand using a doctor-developed recipe with the best oats, organic coconut sugar, dutch cocoa, and real vanilla beans. The tasty lactation blends come in flavors like Vanilla Toffee, Salted Caramel, and Coconut Chocolate and are vegan-friendly, soy-free, dairy-free, and wheat-free.
