What do you get for the woman who has already given you so much? If your mother will actually look you in the eye and tell you exactly what she wants, you’re one of the lucky ones. For the rest of us, there’s a wide sea of standing mixers, bubble baths, and fancy cardigans to swim through in order to find the perfect gift for Mom.
Luckily, we’ve tested hundreds of mom-approved products that happen to make perfect gifts, from the weighted blanket everyone’s obsessed with to the hair dryer the internet exploded over. Here are our recommendations for the 60 best gifts for mom she’s guaranteed to love.
Useful Gadgets For Home – 1. For the mom with great hair: The Revlon dryer everyone is obsessed with
There’s something special about products the whole Internet can agree on—like the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. This cult-favorite product has more than 75,000 reviews on Amazon, a staggering 60,000 of which are 5-star ratings. We tested the Revlon for ourselves and were as obsessed with it as the rest of the Internet was. If your mother loves her hair as much as she loves you (and saving time), she needs the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer in her life. Bonus: The Revlon works on natural hair, too.
Get the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer from Amazon for $41.99

Slippers are a gift straight from the heavens. We tested the best slippers for women and crowned the Minnetonka Chesney Slippers the winners.

They’re the perfect gift for the mom who spends all day on her feet and just wants to relax.

Useful Gadgets For Home – 3. For the mom who loves flowers: Bouqs subscription
For Mother’s Day this year, I got my mother a subscription to Bouqs, a flower-delivery service that sends a fresh bouquet of flowers every month. It is, hands down, the best gift I’ve ever gotten her. She adorably texts me a picture of her bouquet every time it arrives, and reminds me every month that I’m not allowed to cancel it. If mom loves flowers, it doesn’t get better than Bouqs.
Get a monthly subscription to Bouqs starting at $36/month
Useful Gadgets For Home – 4. For the mom who loves looking at old photos: A personalized calendar
There are few gifts better than personalized ones, especially when it comes to mom, who pretty much already has everything she wants. With services like Shutterfly or CVS Print, you can upload your own photos for a calendar and arrange them on colorful backgrounds, then customize your creation for each month. Most calendars also allow you to enter birthdays and important events, so you can help mom actually remember her mother-in-law’s birthday this year.
Get a personalized calendar from Shutterfly starting at $14.99
Useful Gadgets For Home – 5. For the mom who loves happy hour: Winc
You could get mom a nice bottle of wine, or you could give her a wine subscription service that will keep the vino flowing all month long. We tried Winc and quickly became obsessed with the service, finding that it consistently delivered high-quality wines and recommendations throughout the months.
Get your first Winc box for $40
Useful Gadgets For Home – 6. For the mom who loves her kitchen tech: ThermoWorks Thermapen Mk4
When it comes to the best digital meat thermometers, it doesn’t get better than ThermoWorks. The thermometers from this company are incredibly high-quality, providing near-instant temperature readings, ideal for meat-loving moms who rely heavily on their kitchen tech.
Our favorite is the ThermoPop, which could read temperatures accurately in just three seconds. It’s cute, it’s accurate, and it’s just $34. But if you’re looking to splurge, we highly recommend the Thermapen MK4, which was the fastest and most accurate thermometer we tested and would have been our top pick if it wasn’t so expensive. It’s more than double the price of the ThermoPop, but it’s waterproof, precise, and fast-acting.
Get the Thermapen MK4 from Thermoworks for $99
Useful Gadgets For Home – 7. For the mom with a green thumb: A plant from The Sill
Here at Reviewed, we are obsessed with The Sill, an online plant retailer that sells gorgeous potted plants and hosts virtual plant workshops. We’ve tried out The Sill numerous times, finding that it exceeds our expectations with each order. If your mom loves new plants, you can’t go wrong with a customized pot and vibrant plant from The Sill.
Shop plants from The Sill starting at $28
Useful Gadgets For Home – 8. For the foodie mom: An iconic Dutch oven
There is no kitchen tool more versatile than the Dutch oven. Mom can use it to prepare soups, simmer sauces, fry foods, saute vegetables, and so much more. If she doesn’t already own this kitchen staple, it’s time to get her our favorite model—the Staub (yes, it beat the coveted Le Creuset).
We found the Staub Round Cocotte performed equally (if not better) than the Le Creuset Dutch Oven, but cost nearly half as much as the popular brand and we found it fits better on the stovetop. The Staub is easy to clean, colorful, powerful, and shaped perfectly for the stove and pantry.
Get the 5.5-qt Staub Round Cocotte for $259.99
Useful Gadgets For Home – 9. For the mom curious about her roots: AncestryDNA
Mom frequently regales you with stories of your ancestors—like that you’re related to Abraham Lincoln or your second cousin was a British spy—but help her discern fact from fiction by treating her to one of our favorite DNA kits, AncestryDNA. All mom needs to do is spit in a tube, ship off her DNA, and in six to eight weeks she’ll unlock the mysteries of her past, allowing her to view her ancestral roots in the easy-to-use Ancestry interface and potentially find a long lost cousin.
Get AncestryDNA from Ancestry for $99
Useful Gadgets For Home – 10. For the mom who loves to cuddle: A plush weighted blanket
Wrap mom in the same comfort she gave you when you were a child (and let’s be honest, the same comfort she gives you to this day). A weighted blanket can be great for reducing stress and anxiety, but honestly it’s just comfortable to snuggle under while laying on the couch. Our favorite weighted blanket is the Gravity Blanket. We recommend it for all moms, as they won’t get too hot while sleeping, but they’ll stay comfortable all night long.
Get the Gravity Blanket for $189
Useful Gadgets For Home – 11. For the mom with a sweet tooth: Anything from Harry & David
What’s better than a present you can eat? Whether mom prefers fruit or chocolate or assorted cheeses, you can find nearly every type of edible goody from Harry & David. We tried Harry & David and found that its gift baskets were chock-full of delicious foods that would make any person smile. We were partial to the Moose Munch and chocolate-covered pretzels, but if mom loves fresh fruit, you can’t get better than the classic Harry & David pears.

If mom loves her daily yoga routine, get her the best yoga mat on the market—the Lululemon Reversible Mat.

The subscription box allows players to solve a crime, with monthly “episodes” that get the person closer to solving the crime every time. If your mother is just as obsessed with true crime as mine, she’ll be ecstatic to play detective for a few months.

She can opt for a full system that she can play with others, or the single-user Nintendo Switch Lite that she can keep all to herself.
Note: Nintendo Switches are tough to find right now, so you may only find models with price hikes or bundles available.

We tried the Gravity Robe, made by the same company that makes our favorite weighted blanket.

If Mom loves playing on her computer or iPad while listening to TV in the background, the MoonPod could be a game-changing addition to her living space. Plus, you’ll get to use it too.
Useful Gadgets For Home – 54. For the mom of teenagers: Comfortable noise-cancelling headphones
When it’s so noisy in the house that Mom can’t hear herself think, she definitely needs noise-canceling headphones to surround herself in blissful silence. Our experts tested the best noise-cancelling headphones and found the best pair to be the Sony WH-1000XM4s, which allow users to customize the amount of noise cancelling they need. When the football game is on in the family room and Lil Nas X is blasting out of a bedroom, she’ll reach for them. She won’t hear a sound when she’s wearing these headphones, so text her if you need anything.
Get the Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones at Amazon for $348
Useful Gadgets For Home – 55. For the mom who loves to knit: Darn Good Yarn
There’s no such thing as too much yarn. If Mom’s a knitter, she’ll never turn down high-quality skeins (a.k.a. yarn balls) from a top-notch brand like Darn Good Yarn. The company makes ethical yarn and provides sustainable jobs around the world, putting its mission first in all business practices. The yarn itself is cozy, comfy, and easy to work with.
