Mother's Day is one of those holidays that immediately causes a brain white-out: So many loved ones to appreciate! So many gifts and keepsakes to choose from! Our tips: If you're able, share some extra-special activities on that day (Sunday, May 8), including embracing all the wry feels. (And if you’re a new mom, we wish you a warm welcome to the club!) Just remember—don't turn up to see Mom, or Nana, your auntie, sister or your mother-in-law—empty handed: bring something for their relaxation, or a nice piece of jewelry or even something practical, like a gadget to inspire someone else to do the dishes. Here’s our list of loot to get and to drop hints for yourself, Mom.

20 of the Best Gift Baskets You Can Buy—from Skincare Boxes to BBQ-Themed Crates

Don't be surprised if you catch her wearing it outside the house.

best mothers day gifts scalp massager

2. Vegamour Gro Revitalizing Scalp Massager

For the Beauty Enthusiast

This little device has become an internet sensation, relaxing women who want to de-stress, delighting people who want to grow thicker hair and, quite frankly, obsessing our reviewer. We recommend gifting with the brand's scalp detoxifying serum or hair growth serum to refresh locks that might be a bit dull or thinning due to stress, hormonal changes and environmental damage.

The Nue Co.

3. The Nue Co. Magnesium Ease

For the Bedtime Worrier

Daily Look

5. Daily Look Styling Subscription

Best for the Stylish Busy Lady

If Mom likes to look good, but can't quite find time to shop (or just wants to try some new looks), she'll enjoy a gift certificate to Daily Look. The service matches her with a personal stylist who puts together a box of looks for her to review and send back, purchasing only whatever she likes. Each box has a $40 styling fee, but that's folded into the price of whatever she purchases. For a special personal touch, promise to visit and bring a bottle of wine to share while she tries on her new outfits.

best md gifts update brooklinen sheets

6. Brooklinen Heathered Cashmere Sheets

Best for Hot Sleepers

We’re converts to this new fabric which blends five-percent cashmere into an otherwise all-cotton weave to make a sheet that is buttery soft and somehow warm without causing that middle-of-the-night overheated wake-up. And we appreciate Brooklinen’s “short” and “long” labels on fitted sheets, so there’s none of that bed-making frustration.

best md gifts update cariuma sneaker

7. Cariuma Oca Low Sneaker

Best for Vintage Lovers

The throwback style of these Cariuma sneakers, which come in dozens of patterns and hues, will delight the woman who likes the look of classic tennis shoes. And she will appreciate the increased sustainability in their production (two trees planted for every pair sold) as well as the amped-up comfort thanks to the cushy cork footbed.

best mothers day gifts instant camera

8. Zink Kodak Printomatic Digital Instant Print Camera With Kodak Premium Photo Paper

Best for Scrapbookers

This instant camera prints directly onto the photo paper that comes with it. It's so fun to use, and create instant keepsakes, that we predict even family-photo averse teens will want to be a part of the snapshots.

best mothers day gifts winc

Best for the Well-Manicured Woman

Not only does this box include a happy rainbow of colors in the warm range (with a fun pop of mint green thrown in), but it also comes with manicure essentials including Olive & June's innovative "Poppy," a rounded handle that fits on top of nail polish caps to make brushing on polish smoother and more precise than she's ever done freehand. (Extra points if you give your mom a manicure with her favorite hue.)

best mothers day gifts misfits market
Misfits Market

12. Misfits Market Subscription

Best for Organic Food Lovers

Now it's your turn to make sure Mom is getting all her fruits and vegetables by sending her an every-other-week shipment of seasonal produce that's been ix-nayed from grocer shelves because it's a bit oddly shaped, has outdated packaging or otherwise doesn't fit the supermarket standards of beauty. This eliminates food waste and keeps her on her toes, nutrition-wise.

Loose-fitting, machine-washable poly charmeuse will be hard to get her to change out of since it’s so comfortable and stylish.

Best for the Insomniac

In the brilliant idea department: A direct-to-consumer customized pillow. Your giftee just answers a quick questionnaire about their body stats, how she sleeps and what she likes in a pillow, then an algorithm creates an order that can be one of 35 variations. (The sleepy suspense alone makes this gift a win.)

Best for Any Grandma (Seriously)

Our reviewer said this is a welcome advance in clear family communication—after her family sent this to their grandmother, they found that the subsequent intergenerational video calls were clearer than when they used Zoom and Facetime. Have your giftee set it up in her kitchen and you can visit for a quick video call during morning coffee.

best mothers day gifts sauna blanket
Higher Dose

22. Higher Dose Infrared Sauna Blanket V3

Best for Detoxification Enthusiasts

This is the home version of the celebrity favorite infrared sauna craze. You lie down. You wrap a burrito of a heated blanket around you. You sweat a lot.

best mothers day gifts humidifier

31. Objecto H3 Hybrid Humidifier

For the Temperature-Regulated Home Dweller

She likes her home super-warm, say, or blasts the air on high all summer. That’s going to take a toll on the skin, sinuses and overall feeling of comfort.

best mothers day gifts hbo max

32. Hbo Max

For the Avid Cook

Help Mom break out of that dinner rut with dozens of fresh ideas. Only the Good Stuff features our top recipes over the past decade, all in a spiral-bound hardcover book that actually stays open while you cook (because the struggle of reading a recipe while sautéing is all too real).

45. Baby Foot Original Foot Peel Exfoliator

best mothers day gifts yoga mat
Alo Yoga

50. Alo Yoga Warrior Mat

For the Home Practice Yogi

This heavy-duty mat feels extra padded, but you can still feel the floor to really grip. Made with ethically sourced rubber, no PVC or formaldehyde, it’s anti-odor, too. We love the smoky quartz color because it’s a pretty pink that’s not going to show footprints when her pet trots over it.

55. Food 52 Over-the-sink Drying Rack
