The Best Mother’s Day Gift for Every Type of Mom

There’s no better way to say “I love you” than with a gift that doesn’t just shower the No. 1 Mom in your life with affection but also honors her interests and unique personality. We came up with seven iconic mom archetypes and picked out a gift for each of those women.

Some moms are handy, making furniture from reclaimed wood and elaborate halloween costumes out of thin air. Other moms are extremely online and plugged into all the latest trends before they happen. If your favorite mama knows what’s in before TikTok does, you might have an ultra-trendy cool mom. Or maybe the mom in your life is a true bookworm, stealing quiet moments to herself whenever she can to escape into her favorite new novel.

So, this Mother’s Day, whether you’re shopping for your biological mom, the mother of your kids, your grandma, aunt, work-mom, chosen mama, or mother-in-law, there’s a unique gift that will say, “I see you, and I care.”

1. For the DIY Queen

Help the mom in your life level up her DIY game with a cordless drill and driver kit from DeWalt. She’ll finally be able to complete all the home and garden projects she’s been dreaming of — and without the added hassle of tripping over cords or running extension cords across the house.

With DeWalt’s Compact Drill/Driver Kit, she can use the drill in any room or outside without planning “cord logistics.” It’s the perfect gift for the DIY-loving mom because it gives her one less thing to worry about — every mom’s dream. It comes with two rechargeable 20V Max batteries, so it’s easy to swap them out, if she’s working on an all-day kind of project.

It also comes with a storage case, so there’s a place for her to put it once she’s done building those adirondack chairs or mounting loads of ceiling hooks for hanging plants.


For the Cool Mom

If she’s already the coolest mom you know, why not elevate her cool factor with a cup that all the coolest people have? Stanley’s tumblers have taken the internet by storm and whipped up a frenzy of popularity on sites like TikTok.

Regardless of its popularity, it’s also a really great cup. The double-wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks at the right temperature, keeping cool drinks cold and hot drinks hot. Its other features, like the cup-holder compatibility and dishwasher-safe feature, make it a great all-around cup for usability and travel compatibility. And we all know moms are super busy women, so this cup will help them stay hydrated through all of life’s to-dos.


For the New Mom

Do you know what every new mom needs? More time. Give her the gift of time with an air fryer with six cooking functions at the touch of a button. Air fry, broil, roast, dehydrate, bake, and reheat family meals with little to no preheating times.

Air fryers have become a popular household appliance because they do two things ridiculously well. First, they are awesome for making healthier versions of your favorite dishes. Air fried chicken tenders and air fried fingerling potatoes are both big hits in this house. The second thing they do with unmatched precision is reheat leftovers. She’ll feel like a culinary wizard when she reheats those cold delivery fries in minutes and returns them to their crispy-on-the-outside, fluffy-on-the-inside glory.

A 4QT air fryer is suitable for smaller families of two to three. Moms with larger families of three and up should check out air fryers that are 4 quarts and larger.


For the Self-Care Mom

Sometimes, all a mom wants to do is relax. With the Foldable Bathtub Tray, she can bring all her essentials to the tub with her and transform it into a “Relaxation Station.” Mom can grab her favorite glass of pinot, her current read, and a candle and have the most relaxing night she’s had in a while. 

If you really want to wow the hard-working mums in your life, add this to a self-care gift basket. Grab those essentials we listed above—-replace the wine with a popular soda of fizzy bevy if she’s not a drinker—and toss in a few extras like a sheet mask, moisturizer, fuzzy socks, or anything else you know would tickle her fancy and make her feel zen.


For the Yogi Mom

It’s a gift that keeps on giving. Does the incredible mother in your life love fitness, yoga, or getting her stretch on? Liforme’s yoga mats are the ultimate space to unwind, with a sweat-resistant, non-slip, grippy base that won’t move around as you flow on the mat. 

Liforme mats are great for yoga classes that get hot and sweaty, like Hot Yoga, or for women who prefer an excellent grip and cushioned surface. They’re easy to clean and also have an “AlignForMe” system that helps yogis ensure proper alignment as they stretch and flow. 


For the Java Mama

Every busy mom needs a boost. For many moms, the daily dose of coffee is an essential ingredient for getting through the day. From early morning wake-up calls to late nights finishing homework projects, a mom who can “do it all” needs to draw energy from somewhere.

With Kauai’s coffee beans, she can enjoy a savory, homebrewed cup of coffee that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. All she’ll need to do is grind the beans, pop them into her coffee apparatus, and prepare to enjoy a lovely little brew. If she doesn’t have a coffee grinder at home to grind whole beans, Kauai also sells ground coffee and single-serve coffee pods that work in Keurig coffee makers.  

She can serve up the blend in her favorite coffee mug and enjoy a moment of peace and quiet in her day.


For the Bookworm Mom

Sometimes, busy moms just need an escape. If you can’t buy them the three-week trip to Tahiti they 100% absolutely deserve, then gifting her a super popular fantasy novel is a great way to help her find a moment of peace in her hectic world. Fourth Wing weaves together adventure, passion, grit, and magical intrigue that will help her forget about her troubles for a while.

Fourth Wing is the first book in a series, so we recommend pairing it with Iron Flame (book number two) and, if she’s as obsessed as we are, gifting her Onyx Storm upon its release. Books are an affordable way to “travel” without incurring all the typical costs like childcare, flights, and hotels.
