Buying the perfect gift for someone is a lot like shooting at a target blindfolded. Everyone says it's difficult and it's fine if you miss the mark, but you can't help but feel like you could have done better. It's even trickier for someone who, in your mind's eye, has everything.
And it gets trickier still when it comes to your mom. The pressure is on to get her something she'll adore, but what options do you have?
Well, you've come to the right place. We're here to tell you all about what to get a mom who has everything! So sit back and relax, we'll take it from here.
What to Get a Mom Who Has Everything? Start With Something Personal
Sometimes, the mom in your life doesn't need something that will break the bank, but rather something that reminds them that people love and care about them. For smaller occasions, a note detailing how much she means to you with some flowers is a great option. As cheesy as it sounds, as long as you put a lot of thought into the note, it could end up as one of the best gifts she ever received.
If it's not your mom but rather a mom you know, get her kids involved. Help them make a craft you can present together, or help them stage something special (i.e, breakfast in bed). You could get her a gift personalized around her kids (like a ring with their signature) or even make the craft yourself to express your love.
Let Her Kick Back and Relax
Another great gift idea is something that lets the mom in your life chill and alleviates the stress daily life brings. For example, bring the spa experience to her with special super-soft towel head wraps and luxury soaps. Hey, buy them a spa day to boot.
Another great gift for building this serene experience: scented candles. No matter what scent you're looking for, these candles are sure to lock down the exact feeling you hope to capture. You could even get a bacon-scented candle (though why you would want to is beyond us).
Want to give your mom a peaceful night's sleep without waking up with bedhead? Turbie Twist designs special pillowcases that use satin fabric to prevent your hair from frizzing while you sleep.
Finally, you can offer to help create a day off. Volunteer to take over household tasks she handles or babysit/find a trusted babysitter and give her money for a dinner out and a movie so she can have a night out for once.
Tailor It to Her Interests
When the mom in your life isn't working, what does she like to do for fun? Find out what her interests are and get a gift that matches those interests.
If she loves photography (for example), consider getting her a Polaroid Snap Instant digital camera. The pictures print as soon as they're taken like the Polaroids of old, but keep a digital backup for safety and provide a clearer picture than the old models ever did.
Does she love to draw? Buy her a portable sketchbook so she can draw whenever the mood strikes her.
Is she a writer? Then consider getting a daily journal for her to record her thoughts.
Is she a big reader? Consider picking her up some hot new reads like Jacqueline Wilson's Red at the Bone or Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere. Or if she's more into movies, check out Paramount's special limited re-releases of classics like To Catch A Thief and Flashdance.
If she's into gaming, consider the twin hits of Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. To cap it off, if you have a cooking fan on your hands, consider the Chefsteps Joule Sous Vide, which provides real-time feedback to your phone on how your food is cooking.
Bring the World to Her
If she doesn't have the chance to get out and about very often, find ways to bring the discovery and wonder of the world home. One way is to gift her a membership to a website like Ancestry or 23andMe. These sites allow her to see the entire path of her family line, getting her more in touch with your culture and heritage and connect in ways she never thought possible.
Another cool option is online courses. Whether they're big, fancy affairs like MasterClass or smaller classes, these provide a great way for your mom to expand your horizons without having to make a drastic lifestyle change. Plus, they cover almost any topic you could ever want, from acting to pottery.
Need More Options? Here You Go
For some more choices, consider stopping by Etsy. They have a lot of unique art pieces you can't find anywhere else, some of which can get some personalization applied.
If you're searching for an eco-friendly gift (and who isn't?), consider investing in an indoor food recycler for her. This machine turns food waste to compost in only hours. Eco-friendly towels made from recycled materials are another great gift option to keep the Earth clean.
If you're looking for something in the arena of personal care, buy her a shea butter lotion to keep her skin healthy. For fashion, consider giving her a membership to Stitch Fix.
These folks send you packages of clothes based on a setlist of preferences so the mom in your life doesn't have to worry about clothes shopping! Or get her the clothes yourself, like a cuffed wool hat or a Turbie Band to keep her ears warm if she enjoys exercising in the early hours of the morning.
There you go! You now know what to get a mom who has everything. That said, the best trick you have to find a gift for your mom or a mom you know is to trust your gut. Something picked from the heart can't go wrong.
