Mother’s Day in the United States is rapidly approaching—it'll be here on Sunday, May 12, 2024. Though we don’t need a holiday to tell our moms how much they mean to us, this special celebration 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 and any other mother figures, 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.

Of course, jewelry always makes a great gift, and we're also including some creative pieces on the list. From a mixed birthstone necklace that celebrates the bond between mother and child to a minimalist necklace that lets your mom wear her title proudly, there's something for everyone.

Other items will help ensure that your mother gets some much-needed self-care. Whether soaking in a tub and taking in the scent of a lavender bath bomb or warming her toes in the comfort of fuzzy ballerina slippers, she'll appreciate you looking out for her.

In addition, some of the best Mother's Day gift ideas will bring a smile to your mom's face. We like bird-shaped bottle stoppers for wine enthusiasts and llama tea infusers for moms who appreciate a playful touch to their kitchen. And the perfect gift for those who love science? Rachel Ignotofsky has written and illustrated a colorful book on 50 pioneering women in the field. Running short on time? These products also work as great last-minute gifts.
