Mothers, Step Mothers and Mother figures can be the HARDEST to shop for, because they deserve SO much and that can be hard to translate to a gift. As a mom, I’ll be honest, I love a thoughtful gift, but it’s the one day a year that it really is the thought that counts. When they remembered something I said, a memory they know I’d love to replay, something that’s been on a wish list, or a macaroni necklace and the chance to be seen – it’s so lovely.

This wish list is very much inspired by the everyday things I love, things I would gift (or have gifted) my own mother, and some quick, thoughtful ideas.

Now, if you’re really last minute, don’t worry – this has happened to me before too, a simple note saying “something special is arriving by mail” is always more than enough, and draws out the special day.

5. Tushy Classic 3.0 Bidet

Okay so listen, I know I talk a lot about the Dyson Air Wrap, and it’s still sold out online, but I am here to tell you that Dyson’s dark horse is actually the Corrale Hair Straightener. The only straightener with flexing plates that shape to gather hair and uses less heat. Oh! And it is corded or cord-free. It’s a no-brainer for mom.
