These Mother’s Day Gifts Will Change Her Vibe From Regular To Yas Queen

mother's day gifts and ideas 2019

The last thing you’ll want is a fistful of carnations shoved in your face on Mother’s Day, so you should consider the holiday with more than 24 hours of prep. And if you’re a mom, you know how it is: It’s straight annoying to wake up to the sound of the fire alarm early on a Sunday. Sorry, not sorry: Moms can burn their own toast any day. So, even if you anticipate being given a bad gift on Mother’s Day you should still bite it and give the woman who raised you something she’ll like.

The good news? We have (actually) cool Mother’s Day gift ideas picked out for every type of budget, whether you’re buying something for your mom or your entire #momsquad. If she’s into tech, girly sh*t, cooking, gardening, starting a business, or being on the receiving end of something sentimental (gulp!), we’ve rounded up the best gifts and ideas that will get you in her good graces on Mother’s Day. Yeah, you’re welcome.

One pro tip: Do not forget a card on Mother’s Day unless you want her to write you out of her will. Seriously. Oh, and we won’t tell if you shop for yourself, too. Take a sip, get in the spirit of giving, and read on for real Mother’s Day gift ideas and inspiration:

1. Renpho Shiatsu Foot Massager With Heat

BEST FOR THE MAMA WHO NEEDS TO CHILL

What mom doesn’t want an excuse to treat her tootsies like they’re more important than her own children? She’ll appreciate your splurge and the ability to slip her toes into a toasty foot massager that can restore and relax a burnt-out mama. It’s a powerful deep-kneading massager, but it’s quiet enough for her to use while getting a full dose of her favorite reality television show. There are three different kneading preferences as well as three different air pressure levels that can easily be personalized.

2. Knock Knock What I Love About Mom Book

BEST FOR THE EMOTIONAL MOM

amazon.com

Bring some tissues with you to Mother’s Day brunch, because this fill-in-the-blank book is designed to trigger your mom’s waterworks. Honestly, seeing how much it means to her will make you feel emotional, too. Oh, and consider yourself warned: Moms get so proud about what’s written in the book that they often read the sentiments aloud. Simple prompts like, “When we are apart, it makes me happy to think about ____” and “I love your taste in ____” make it easy-breezy to jot things down. This is a Mother’s Day gift idea that shouldn’t be ignored! 

3. Foreo UFO Smart Mask Treatment Device

BEST FOR THE SKIN-SAVVY MOM

You’ll earn serious brownie points by gifting her this smart mask treatment device by Foreo. Turning a 20-minute treatment into a 90-second one, this luxe device offers spa-like results from home that moms just can’t refuse. It features cyro, thermo, and LED light technology along with T-sonic pulsations that will make your ma feel like the pampered goddess she is. If you’re not feeling the splurge this year, you can still give the gift of Foreo and go with a classic facial cleansing brush, instead!  

4. UGG Fluff Yeah Slippers

BEST FOR THE LOUNGE-AROUND-THE-HOUSE MOM

These insanely adorable sheepskin slippers feature a comfy strap in the back and rubber soles so your mom won’t slip and slide while she’s shuffling around the house.

5. KitchenAid Hand Mixer

BEST FOR THE KITCHEN-CRAZED MOTHER

12. Tile Pro

BEST FOR THE HOT-MESS (SORRY) MOM

Your mom is amazing, but there are times when you seriously question how she makes it through the day. If she’s the type to hunt down the house for her glasses while sporting them on her head, her life will actually change for the better with a Tile. You can gift her one, or five! All your mom has to do is attach it to something she doesn’t want to lose (like her keys or the remote) and then use her phone to check in and see where she left the item last. Freaking genius.

This bamboo bath caddy makes it easy to keep a book, candle, bath bomb, wine glass, or bag of potato chips (you never know) dry until it’s time to indulge. She’ll never take a bath again without it.

It’s Mother’s Day, So Leave Me The Hell Alone

The irony of Mother’s Day is that mothering is the exact last thing I want to do on this one special day of the year dedicated to the moms who give their all to these tiny fart nugget children who are also the pride and joy of our very existence in this life. 

Holla at me if you relate to any of the following: 

I’ve bled for these children, fluctuated 50 lbs a piece for these children, fed these children (FROM MY OWN BOOBS WHICH ARE NOW SAD AND FLAPPY BECAUSE OF IT), lost sleep for these children (so much sleep, remember what it felt like to sleep? ), sprouted varicose veins for these children, gotten stitches in my vagina for these children, spent all of my money on these children, attended so many games and practices for these children where they do nothing but swarm around a ball, or sit in the outfield and stare at the sun. Driven all over kingdom come for these children.

happy mothers day sleep

Worn my heart on the outside of my body for the past 9+ years for these children. 

I DRIVE A FREAKING MINIVAN FOR THESE CHILDREN. 

And yet, the last thing I want to do on this blessed day is to actually be around these children. Like, at all. 

It’s nothing personal, my sweet darlings. It’s just that I want a day. One day, just one where I can 100% check out and the house doesn’t burn down and life goes on and we all wake up the next morning and go back to our old routines.

I need one day to enjoy Netflix to my heart’s delight, to sleep in, to lock the door without small hands sticking underneath or anyone asking me to help them wipe. One day without breaking up a fight, just one. I need one day where Dad handles it all. I don’t want flowers necessarily (although, I wouldn’t say no because flowers are beautiful and delicate, just like me), I don’t even need a gift.

I do want my children to understand that this is a special day just for Mom where we have to leave her alone, OR ELSE, and that they all must make her a card professing their love and appreciation, even if that card just has their name written on it with some half-crooked hearts and something that looks like an orc drawn on there which actually turns out to be a rendering of yours truly.

Whatever, it’s fine. I’ll take it. 

Dads or significant others, do your lady a solid on this Mother’s Day if you’ve still got kids at home (and if they’re gone make sure you remind them to call home because duh, still important): 

  1. Have each child write a card or note to her expressing their love and undying devotion and appreciation and make sure you write her one too.
  2. Let her sleep in
  3. Get her favorite treat and leave it like a peace offering at the bedroom door. Don’t open the door unless she specifically calls for you and invites you into her kingdom, for she is the queen of the day. Or whatever. 
  4. Don’t ask her to do anything. Anything at all. If she comes out of her room don’t make eye contact and just stare at the ground unless she speaks to you directly. 
  5. Don’t ask any questions either, you can figure it out for one single day. 
  6. Prepare or fetch any food for her that she desires. Bonus points for having her favorite treat on hand (*COUGH CHOCOLATE COVERED CINNAMON BEARS).
  7. Let her wake up to a clean house. Do the dishes, don’t leave laundry out, just take care of the kids and all the stuff she does every single day. You can do it. Don’t screw this up. 
  8. Don’t forget to call your own mom and tell her you love her too. She’s important, DO NOT FORGET. 

I recognize that I don’t speak for all moms, but for all moms who are on the same page as me…all we want is one dang day. 

Tomorrow, it’s back to business as usual. 

Happy Mother’s Day! Now leave me the hell alone.
