Mother’s Day in the United States is rapidly approaching—it'll be here on Sunday, May 10, 2020. Though we don’t need a holiday to tell our moms how much they mean to us, this special occasion is a nice way to celebrate how great they are. And, the internet is chock-full of items that would make for unique gifts for mom. To help you in your quest for the perfect present, we’ve gathered a bevy of different items from makers around the world.

If your mom loves fresh flowers, we’ve found an ingenious way to display beautiful blooms in the home. But if she's allergic, we've got other suggestions, like bottle stoppers for wine enthusiasts and playful tea infusers for moms who enjoy an afternoon cup. And for those who love science? Rachel Ignotofsky has written and illustrated a colorful book on 50 pioneering women in the field.
