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.
