Mother’s Day is swiftly approaching. And even if you consider yourself a shopping pro, there’s something about this particular holiday that just hits different. After all, choosing the perfect thing for the mom (or moms) who’ve been there for you through it all can feel, well, pretty daunting. Luckily, we have a secret weapon up our sleeves: Macy’s—our one-stop shop for everyone on your list, from mom to grandma to your pregnant BFF.  Below, we highlight some of the best on-trend gifts for every important woman in your life, all of which you can get at Macy’s. Because let’s face it, every day should be Mother’s Day.


1. Elegant Jewelry

There’s a reason jewelry is the first thing you think of when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts—because it’s never not a good idea. From personalized charms to mixed metals (two of the top jewelry trends we’re tracking this year), Macy’s has a gift to suit both your budget and mom’s unique taste. And if you’re not sure where to start, may we suggest a versatile watch—like the two-tone style from Fossil above—or a classic diamond tennis bracelet she can wear every day? They’re timeless for a reason.   


2. Better Beauty

Whether mom is a beauty product-devotee or a makeup minimalist, Macy’s has a wide array of popular brands that’ll have her looking (and feeling) her best. Fragrances, face oils, frizz control—we could go on. We also love their commitment to featuring diverse-owned brands and sustainable styles, like Fashion Fair, a Black-owned beauty and skincare line made in a range of shades for women of color.


3. Mommy & Me Matching

For those with little ones, a mommy-and-me moment never fails. (So. Cute.) Coordinating mom and daughter outfits are perfect for a celebratory brunch or fun dress-up day. Go all in with identical dresses or the more subtle route with a sweet necklace set. You could also take the theme in an entirely different direction—think: an adorable grandma-and-me book or a baking set featuring matching adult and child-size aprons.  


4. Luxe Loungewear

So you’re planning on making—well, buying—mom breakfast in bed…why not pair your gesture with some super-soft pajamas that fit just right, or a stylish knit loungewear set she won’t want to take off? (And if it’s Mother’s Day, she shouldn’t have to.) She’ll look forward to slipping into her brand-new PJs at the end of a long day and you can rest easy knowing your gift goes a long way.


5. Dresses from Day to Night

Something polished she can throw on for a busy workday. A low-effort look that’ll help her beat the heat (and look good doing it). A vacay-ready tunic she can pack for Palm Springs. Macy’s has a plethora of dress options for every style, size and at every price point. You can’t go wrong with one of these carefully selected picks below, but if you’re looking for more, Macy’s dress shop is a true treasure trove.
