Mother’s Day in the United States is rapidly approaching—it'll be here on Sunday, May 14, 2023. 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 express our appreciation for everything they do. And, the internet is chock-full of items that would make for unique gifts for mom (this includes grandma, too!). To help you in your quest for the perfect present, we’ve gathered a bevy of Mother's Day gift ideas from makers around the world that are sure to make a splash this year.

These gifts cover a range of interests for every type of mom. Some are interesting pieces that can serve as decoration in the home, while others make for a great DIY gift that will inspire your mom to start making crafts again. For instance, if your mom loves fresh flowers, we’ve found an ingenious way to display beautiful blooms in the home, which will ensure it's the best Mother's Day she's ever had.

In addition, some of the best Mother's Day gift ideas will bring a smile to your mom's face.
