It’s hard to thank mom for everything she’s done for you and it’s absolutely impossible to repay her for the gift of life. However, it is possible to at least give her the perfect present. Her definition of perfect might mean an expensive kitchen item she’s been too cheap to buy herself, products that create an at-home spa experience, or a savvy tech gadget that keeps the family connected. And if that’s not enough, there’s always a wine subscription. She’ll absolutely love these useful gifts and think of you every time she uses them. Best of all, you can find them all in one place–right at QVC.
1. For the one who’s sentimental: A personalized necklace
If you want that sweet gift that will make her go, “aww,” this is it. New moms will especially love this dog tag that has an engraved handprint. It can even be customized with a name up to eight characters. The gold plated chain is easily wearable on its own or if mom is into layering a few other necklaces, it works perfectly.
2. For the one who needs to unwind: This portable massage gun
There’s a likelihood that mom is a little tired, maybe even a bit stressed, so weekly massages wouldn’t hurt. But that’s an unlikely and expensive appointment mom might not be able to keep up with. Instead, gift her Theragun’s mini massager. Though it’s compact, less than six inches and 1.5 pounds, it packs a punch with three speeds. It ranked highly in our list of the best massage guns, as we liked its ergonomic grip and compact size that’s ideal for traveling. She can work out those sore muscles or stiffness and the rechargeable battery makes it super portable.
3. For the new mom: A stylish way to organize baby’s firsts
Moms who want to keep everything (but do so in an organized way) will find this keepsake box helpful. It features pull out drawers for storage and the sheet of pre-made labels include the first pair of shoes, locket of hair, first teeth, hospital mementos, and more. This is a chic storage solution for those sentimental things that she’s not ready to part with just yet.
4. For the person who wants to get moving: A sleek fitness tracker
The slim design of this Garmin device makes it an attractive gift for anyone who needs a tracker that’s not so bulky or that blends in with other daily accessories. This keeps tabs on sleep activity, stress levels, calories burned, and physical activities like workouts and steps taken. This model is especially great for active moms who would want to keep their tracker on while swimming or at the beach, since it’s water resistant. We chose it as favorite affordable pick in our roundup of the best fitness trackers due to its handy features like connected GPS, automatic activity and sleep tracking, and stress monitoring.
5. For the one who loves relaxing: This remote controlled diffuser
This ceramic and wood diffuser sure is small, but it does a lot. It operates for up to ten hours, has color-changing lights, and emits relaxing sounds. This is truly like having a mini spa experience from the comfort of home, according to nearly 100 customers who have given it a solid 4-star rating. Mom will love adding a few drops of her favorite essential oils (the kit includes three 2ml scents) to set the mood for a bubble bath or just on a day when she wants the house to smell amazing.
6. For the homebody: A soft, lengthy throw to wrap up in
Barefoot Dreams makes some of the coziest throws, robes, loungewear ever. We tested the brand to confirm it lived up to the hype, which it totally did, so there’s no need to hesitate adding this soft throw to mom’s collection. The blue and white design is sure to work for a variety of decor styles and look great folded over any couch or foot of a bed. And when she’s ready to snuggle up after a long day, the super soft microfiber material, which measures 54-inches wide by 72-inches tall, will be exactly what she needs.
7. For the one who’s always on her feet: A heated massager
Sitting all day at a desk or for countless Zoom calls can take a toll on the body, but this is one relaxing product mom can actually use while cranking out work. This foot and calf massager can be used with or without heat and has variable speeds and six massage programs. This is sure to help mom unwind while she’s seated at her desk, or she can just use this while she’s relaxing on the couch during her Netflix sessions. One happy customer writes, “It is intense, but incredibly effective…The calf massage and compression felt great.”
8. For the style maven: Luxe for less sunnies
Sunglasses can sometimes be an afterthought, until those sun rays cause you to squint. This pair of sunnies gets the function and fashion right with UVA/UVB protection and an oversized style by Prive Revaux, Jamie Foxx’s trendy eyeglass brand. They come in a variety of colors and they’re so affordable, you can buy them all so mom can alternate between her favorite pairs.
9. For the cook in the family: This deep, aluminum skillet
Convenience is the name of the game with this colorful nonstick skillet. Besides being super colorful (a teal pan makes cooking better, right?), the deep design and high walls means less spillage. Close to 200 reviewers love that it’s deep enough to make soups and stews for two or even eggs for the entire family. The 9.5-inch pot is also dishwasher and oven safe.
10. For the environmentalist: A popular water bottle that holds its temperature
She probably has a water bottle, but nothing this cute. The bike pattern is perfect for moms who love being active and working up a sweat. Like all S’well bottles, the 15-ounce, insulated, stainless steel design keeps beverages cold or hot for up to 36 and 18 hours, respectively. In fact, S’well was a solid performer when we tested the best water bottles due to its vacuum-insulated design, which features a copper layer to help eliminate condensation. It fits in most standard cup holders and the wide mouth makes cleaning a breeze.
11. For the road tripper: This compact roadside kit
This is one of those gifts that mom probably hasn’t even realized she needs, but she absolutely does. Enclosed in the colorful container (it comes in rose, terrazzo, or purple) are essentials like jumper cables, USB charging ports, an air compressor, and more. Out of its numerous positive reviews, shoppers are quick to mention how the one-button jump starter can really come in handy during an emergency, while the display screen makes it easy to read the battery life.
12. For music lovers: A vintage inspired radio
There’s no doubt we’re living in a digital world, but this Crosley AM/FM radio has a fun vintage feel, but with some modern touches. The sound quality is crystal clear, reports shoppers, and if mom doesn’t want to listen to the radio, she can connect to the Bluetooth. The portable device is just over six inches wide, so it can sit comfortably on the corner of a dresser, vanity, or can even be used during beach day.
13. For the wine lover: A two-year long subscription
A one-time gift? Sure, that says you love her. But a continuous wine subscription? That shows you truly adore her. This delivery from Wine Estates can be a single shipment or you can set up recurring shipments for every four months for the next two years! Mom will receive three bottles of her favorite Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Moscato. These auto deliveries can be a great way for mom to sample a few new wines and find a favorite.
14. For the smoothie lover: A 13-in-1 appliance
Some kitchen counter appliances can be downright expensive, so save mom major cash by purchasing this Vitamix that’s well worth the price, and is always a consistent performer in our blender tests. It’s considered 13 appliances in one because it juices, blends, grates, chops, and more. The bases come in fun colors like red, pistachio, or cinnamon so it’s a nice pop of color if mom chooses to leave it out on the countertop. She’ll reach for this quite often whether she’s making soup, salsa, or a smoothie. If she’s ever at a loss for what to whip up, the 95 page cookbook should be some help.
15. For the mom who’s always cold: These slippers that are like sweaters for the feet
Slippers for Mother’s Day? Not exactly groundbreaking, but when they’re this comfortable and top-rated? Now that’s a winning gift. These Skechers look like the definition of coziness (think: faux fur and sweater knit) and reviewers confirm they’re warm, which is especially great for anyone who gets chilly often. The insoles provide added comfort and the sole is slightly textured for secure walking.
16. For the forgetful one: This slim tracker for important objects
“Where did I put my keys, again?” We’ve all muttered the phrase, but busy moms have probably repeated it more than anyone. The pack of four Tile mate trackers can attach to anything with a key clip or flat surface, respectively. The Bluetooth-enabled devices can help her find those precious, but easily misplaced items like keys, wallets and, phones. The free app works by sending a ringing sound if a lost item is less than 200 feet away or for items at a farther distance, it can show the most recent location. The Tile can also be used to help locate her phone and send a ring, even when it’s on silent.
17. For the coffee lover: This machine that’s easy to operate and control the brew
Some coffee machines have a million buttons and look impossible to operate unless you’re a barista. This Keurig model—dubbed our most versatile single-serve coffee machine—has the same quality the brand is known for with a sleek design and easy functionality. Mom can choose between her brew size, froth milk her for drinks, and make either coffee, latte, and cappuccino. There’s a convenient auto shut off, and on those days when she really needs a jolt, she’ll love having the option to control the brew strength.
