If your mom is anything like mine, then she’s notoriously difficult to shop for. It’s not her fault—it just seems like she already has everything (aside from things I definitely can’t afford as a gift, like an incredible beach vacation). But, after scouring my mom’s favorite sites, her Pinterest and just flat-out asking her what she’d want as Mother’s Day gifts, I finally compiled a selection of things I’d actually consider buying for my mom this year. (You’re welcome for taking so much time doing this, mom.)

Obviously no two moms are alike, but I believe there are similarities amongst them that allow me to put gifts into several categories. The first is pampering—gifts that allow your mom to do a little something nice for herself. This could be anything from some nice lotion to a complete spa package. The second is home decor “lite.” I never like to presume my mom wants me to add decor to her home, but I do know her style pretty well. If you think you know how your mom likes to decorate, get her a gift—a throw pillow, blanket, vase—that shows you pay attention to her personal decor style. The third category is accessories. I’ve never met a mom who didn’t appreciate a cute piece of jewelry or a useful accessory—like a charging cable keychain or travel jewelry case. Accessories are an easy way to get your mom a thoughtful gift (and they’re usually not too expensive).

So, while our moms may not have the exact same taste, everything on this list fits somewhere into those three categories: pampering, home decor lite and accessories. From cute slip-on sneakers and a kimono-style robe to phone cases and cooling eye masks, there are so many ways to treat your mom this Mother’s Day. Always try to think about your mom’s little quirks, and typically that leads to finding a fun and useful gift she’ll actually be excited to receive. Of course, we all know the best give is love. (Too cheesy? I’ll see myself out now.)
