I don't mean to brag or anything, but I'd consider myself an expert gift giver. Every time I take the love language test, my top one is giving and receiving gifts. It's always been the way I communicate my love and appreciation for someone. From making baskets to eyeing what's on someone's shopping lists, the act of buying something for someone that you carefully planned and thought out can be something extremely special. It's no different for Mother's Day. Even though any day is a good day to appreciate your mom, the holiday is a perfect excuse to give them a little extra pampering.

We've already covered the best gifts for new moms and wrote a full beauty guide, but the list below is guaranteed to include something your mom will have to love (and you'll want to borrow). From heavenly scented candles and perfumes to comfy loungewear and workout equipment, there's something in here for everyone. Keep scrolling to check out the ultimate gift buys we know your mom will love.

Associate Fashion Editor
Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
