Great Gift Ideas for Mom from Amazon
Keep mom prepared for anything with a portable charger for her phone.
Verified purchase review: “This portable charger is excellent! It charges my phone several times before needing to be charged again. I know it will come in handy when we go on vacation and we need to charge multiple phones at the same time. I love the pretty mint color!”
Keep mom’s ears nice and toasty on her walks while her favorite tunes fill her ears with no earbuds to get tangled.
Verified purchase review: “I bought this for my wife who loves beanies and uses bluetooth headphones all the time. She is very pleased with both the quality of the built-in bluetooth headset and the actual hat itself. It has a very nice leather tag where the controls are for the unit. The electronics can be easily removed for washing the beanie. The unit can also be charged via a small opening in the hat.”
Does mom have a green thumb? A black thumb? Doesn’t matter! These live succulent plants are a great gift idea for any mom. Just don’t forget some pretty pots.
Verified purchase review: “I decided to buy this set because I wanted to bring a little life into my workshop that didn’t require too much attention. I was very shocked when I received them at how tiny they were, but during one of my trips to Lowes I was able to buy some succulent potting mix and some cheap pots and after transplanting these they grew SO fast. I am certain they will be ready for even larger pots soon. They were shipped securely and were extremely healthy as you can see from my photo. Since buying these my hobby has gone a little crazy and now I am buying cactus and other things but I highly recommend these for beginners. I even purchased a second set and potted them as a gift to a loved one to bring to the office.”
Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Built-in-Mic
This lovely little speaker is great for keeping a busy mom’s hands available for all the things she needs to do.
Verified purchase review: “I am extremely impressed with the HUGE sound that comes from this small device. I have never owned a Bluetooth speaker before but really wanted one. I liked all of the positive reviews that the Lenrue speaker was receiving so I thought I’d give it a try. It was so super easy to connect it to my android phone and then to my Ipad. Took just seconds to connect and I was listening to my music within about a minute.”

What a special addition to any wall! It’s a great way to keep up with birthdays too. Personalize the birthday board before you give mom her present or let her do it herself.
Verified purchase review: “This was the perfect gift for my mother’s birthday. Very easy to assemble. Love the fact that there were so many charms to hang, especially if you mess up on one!”
Ceramic Ring Dish Decorative Trinket Plate
This precious, little dish makes a great bedside catch-all and humbly reminds mom of your love.
Verified purchase review: “I purchased this to give to my mother as a gift. It is beautiful! The gold painting on it is very even and solid. The black writing is very solid as well, and it doesn’t seem like it will wear. It’s great quality and a sweet little sentiment to give to my mother.”

Plenty of lil pockets and space inside for paperwork and extras to carry with it… very comfortable on the shoulders as well. You will be very happy with this product. Will order more for the daughters and coworkers for gifts.”
Jessica Simpson Women’s Comfy Faux Fur House Slippers
Gorgeous slippers are a persona gift every mom will appreciate, especially when they have anti-slip soles so mom can move about safely and comfortably.
Verified purchase review: “I purchased this product as I had recently moved into an apartment that is 100% tile and I hate having cold feet. The product was shipped promptly and arrived in amazing condition. My feet are singing praises! I am African American so my feet do not have any arches and are naturally wider than their Caucasian counterpart so I was a tad worried that the fit would be more narrow but it fit perfectly and my foot didn’t spill out of the shoe! These are so freaking cute! I will definitely be purchasing more for myself, my mom, and my little sisters! Highly recommend this product! The fur is super soft and doesn’t shed at all. Beautiful color!”
Cleverfy Aromatherapy Shower Steamers
Does mom lack the time for relaxing baths? No problem! These shower steamers provide the perfect solution for giving mom a relaxing spa experience in the shower.
Verified purchase review: “I bought these as a mother’s day gift for my mom. It arrived earlier than expected. I could smell the different fragrances through the box, and they smelled amazing! I look forward to hearing what my mom thinks about them after she tries it out!”
If mom prefers a leisurely soak in a hot bath, these organic bath bombs will transform her bathroom into a luxurious spa experience. Made with Epsom Salt, Dead Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, Apricot Kernel Oil, Essential and Natural Oils, these bath bombs are vegan and gluten-free.
Verified purchase review: “Ordered this as a gift for an exhausted mom of a 2 year old. She absolutely loves these bombs! She loves the smells, the fact that they are all organic, and mostly that they don’t stain the bathtub! Great product!”
Beautiful! And mom will think about you every time she sees this lovely gift.
Verified purchase review: “This is such a good gift. I got this for my mom because she loves birds. It hangs perfect over her window. It looks like real glass. It lights up so pretty and twinkles. I wish it stayed lit longer. It lights up for maybe an hour or two each night.”
For a mom on her feet, this skin care treatment will restore her weary feet back to baby soft condition.
Verified purchase review: “I bought this for my mom and I but mostly for my mom. I’m going to have to say I was very confident it was going to work but she thought I wasted my money. But it was the opposite!! Day 1 she soaked her feet for about an hour in warm water then I put on the foot mask for her and had her sit for an hour. Days 1-5 were uneventful as there were no peeling. She did soak her feet in water everyday for about 10 min. Day 6-10 were awesome and the peeling began and basically ended. She is definitely in love and she want me to buy extras for the future. I would definitely recommend especially for those people who go get their feet done at the salon. Save your money!!! And just buy this it’s definitely better and cheaper! In love and great customer service.”
A personalized necklace adorned with the birthstones and initials of her children is always a lovely gift. This particular necklace is extremely affordable but can easily be upgraded with a different chain.
Verified purchase review: “It is BEAUTIFUL!! I bought one for myself and for my mom for Mother’s Day. Beautiful craftsmanship and product!! Amazing service! Thank you!”

If mom is always looking for her scissors, get her a pair that is specifically (and beautifully) hers alone.
Verified purchase review: “These are sharp scissors and heavyweight scissors! They’re like your mom’s craft scissors she never let you touch because they were her “good scissors” that cut everything like a hot knife through butter- including skin lol be careful.”

Give mom a fun way to keep the grocery list or an even better way of communicating messages to the family with these Scrabble word tile magnets.
Verified purchase review: “I purchased the scabble magnetic refrigerator tiles for my mom, who is a scrabble connoisseur so she has trouble finding players. What better challenge than yourself. It’s up on her refrigerator. Each time she goes to it, she makes a move.”
Remind mom that you love her to the moon and back with this lovely lamp.
