The Best Mother’s Day Gifts of 2024

1. For the Skinnytaste Fan: Skinnytaste Simple

My latest cookbook Skinnytaste Simple is one of the best Mother’s Day gifts for busy moms who want to add new meals into their rotation. It features more than 120 recipes for every meal of the day, including breakfast and dessert, and the best part is that every recipe contains a maximum of seven ingredients! It’s that simple! I love cooking these recipes, as they’re easy to make, budget-friendly, and big on flavor. 

2. For the Mom In a Hurry: ALLCOOL Airfryer Oven

I love using my air fryer for quick and easy weeknight dinners, and I have tried a few air fryers to find the best ones! I recently got this one from ALLCOOL, and I love how beautiful it looks in the all-white color, so Mom will be happy to display it on her counter. The dial and touch-activated screen make it easy to change the time and temperature, and you can select from eight cooking presets to get dinner on the table fast. The large 8-quart size is also plenty of room to make my favorites from Skinnytaste Air Fryer Dinners.

3. For the Soup Loving Mom: Souper Cubes

Souper Cubes are one of my favorite meal prep containers, and I swear by them for freezing leftover rice and soups. The silicone containers are clearly marked with measurements inside each tray, making it easy to freeze individual portions of leftover soup, chili, sauce, and more. It’s an ingenious solution for anyone who likes to meal prep for the week, and the cubes come in a variety of sizes, with a capacity ranging from two cups to two tablespoons per tray. 

4. For the Yogi Mom: HeyNuts Essential Full Length Yoga Leggings

I love Lululemon, but admittedly I don’t always love the prices. Thankfully these Amazon leggings are a great and affordable alternative. They’re buttery soft and so comfortable while also being compressive without being too constricting. Plus, they’re just super flattering! I wear them for workouts or just hanging out and running errands. They come in 16 colors and some reviewers say they were so impressed they ordered a second pair the day they arrived. I would do the same! 

5. For the WFH Mom: REDLIRO Under Desk Treadmill

My husband got me this walking pad as a gift and it’s one of the best things he’s ever gotten me. I love using it while I’m working or watching TV to get some extra steps in when it’s cold or rainy out. It goes up to 4 MPH for walking, and a bar lifts up if you want to use it for running up to 7 MPH. It’s comfortable to walk on, it’s not too noisy, and there’s a handy remote to adjust the speed or stop it quickly. I love it!

6. For the Trendy Mom: Sam Edelman Zuri Ballet Flat

These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn and would make one of the best Mother’s Day gifts for any mom who wants to try the ballet flat trend. I wear them almost every day! I think they’re so cute with the crisscrossing straps and a bow detail. They also come in a ton of different colors and make it easy to dress up an otherwise casual outfit. They might become her favorite shoes, too!

7. For the Mom Who Wears Her Heart on Her Sleeve: Initial Pendant Necklaces

There’s nothing like keeping your kids close to your heart while they’re at school, soccer practice, or daycare. I love using initial necklaces of my kids’ names to keep them close to my heart. How special is that? These two options from Kate Spade and Kendra Scott feature classic designs that will coordinate with whatever jewelry she already wears. They’re high quality and won’t fade when she works out or showers, and they’ll be in her wardrobe rotation for years to come.

A backyard pizza oven is one of those Mother’s Day gifts for the whole family and I love this one from Ooni. This portable pizza oven lets you cook pizzas in just 60 seconds and has a glass door so you can watch the pizza rise while it cooks. This model lets you even make wood fired pizza will bring a whole new meaning to pizza night. Try it with my Margherita Pizza!

9. For the Stylish Mom: Tory Burch Small Ella Crocheted Tote

I recently got this Tory Burch tote, and I think it’s the perfect bag for summer! It has a beautiful crochet design, and I like the small size for grabbing my essentials on the go and it has a sturdy flat bottom. There are four color options, but I really like the pink one for something different. It’s one of those splurge Mother’s Day gifts she’ll truly treasure.

10. For the Grill Master Mom: ThermoPro TP19H Digital Meat Thermometer

For the mom who loves to grill, the best meat thermometer is one of the best Mother’s Day gifts. There will be no more guesswork for the perfect seared steak and she won’t fuss with overcooked meats. This thermometer gives a reading in just 3 to 4 seconds, and it can be used for grilling, making caramel, or even frying. It has almost 30,000 positive reviews for a reason and is the perfect gift for the mom counting down to summer barbecues.

11. For the Mom Who Likes Cheese Boards: John Boos Circular Cutting Board and a That Cheese Plate Wants to Party

There’s nothing like a good cheeseboard (it totally counts as dinner, IMO), and having a beautiful board takes things to the next level. My favorite wood cutting board is John Boos Circular Cutting Board—it’s round and has a slightly raised lip to make sure nothing falls off. It’s made in the U.S. from American Maple, and at 26 inches, it’s ready for a party. 

If you need ideas for making your cheeseboard Instagram-worthy, That Cheese Plate Wants to Party has you covered. It’s the latest cookbook from cheese plate expert Marissa Mullen and it’s full of ideas for all kinds of gatherings. Marissa’s Cheese By Numbers method helps you actually make boards that look like the pictures, and the book has fun playlists that go with each board, making it the perfect complimentary gift!

Nothing says home chef quite like their own apron. Hedley & Bennett makes quality aprons that are also stylish thanks to the many colors and patterns. You’ll even find collabs with Disney, Snoopy, The Grateful Dead, and more! There are two pockets to hold any cooking tools — like a meat thermometer or wooden spoon — and she’ll feel like a real chef when she puts it on.

13. For the Mom Who Needs A Spa Day: Elemis Skincare

An at-home spa day is for anyone deserving of a little self-care—but with kids and work, it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like. With some of my favorite products, mom can make the bathroom at home feel a little more spa-like during her morning and nighttime routines.

I love Elemis’ Superfood Facial Oil, which brings the benefits of superfoods to your skin. It hydrates and soothes my skin for a daily glow. It’s so moisturizing. The brand’s Marine Cream is also one of my favorites and is made with collagen to help hydrate and firm skin, plus built in SPF 30. I love everything the brand makes and it all feels luxurious!

14. For the Hydrated Mom: Owala FreeSip Water Bottle

Move over, Stanley, the Owala is now the IT water bottle of the moment, and it will remind Mom to drink water while running around doing errands or when in the zone at work. It comes in so many fun colors and it has a built-in carry strap that doubles as a lock to make sure there are no spills. There are two ways to sip: the straw or the chute for chugging. Plus, the insulated container keeps drinks cold for nine hours. I bring mine with me everywhere!

15. For the Mom Who’s Always Cold: Barefoot Dreams Throw Blanket

The Barefoot Dreams blankets are beloved by celebs and influencers alike for a reason. This top-rated blanket is popular for a reason. It’s so soft that you feel like you’re wrapped in a cloud, and it’s machine-washable for easy cleaning. The really special thing about these blankets is that they keep you snuggly without being too warm—and no one wants to be sweating under a blanket. Warning: Your kids might just steal them (so maybe gift mom two of them so she has a secret stash!).

16. For the Mom Who Loves Potlucks: Staub Cast Iron Dutch Oven

If Mom doesn’t already own one (or even if she does!), upgrade her kitchen situation with an impeccable Dutch oven from Staub. This Skinnytaste favorite is made of cast iron, which means it will last forever, so she might pass it down to the kids one day. It’s easy to clean and comes in beautiful colors to coordinate with her kitchen. This pot is also large enough for cooking for a group, and it’s so stunning she’ll want to use it as a serving dish at potlucks and holiday meals. 

17. For the Mom With A Cooking Aesthetic: Our Place Always Pan

The Always Pan is all over social media and a star of my kitchen for a reason. This is one of my favorite nonstick pans and the one I use most for everyday cooking, and is one of the best Mother’s Day gifts. The newest upgraded version includes a wooden spatula, a steamer basket, and, best of all, it’s oven-safe up to 450 degrees so you can go from stovetop to stove. The multifunctional design is so helpful for making the most of your kitchen space and the nonstick surface is perfect for cooking eggs, searing vegetables or proteins, and now even roasting. With eight colors to choose from, picking her favorite might be the hardest part.

18. For the Mom Who’s Always Sipping: Tiled Margot Monogram Mug

Coffee just tastes better out of a mug with your initial on it, and I’m obsessed with these ones. They have a tiled design inspired by French bistros. She’ll be transported to Paris with each sip of coffee or tea, and it’s the one I reach for every morning. At under $15 each, you can splurge on a few of them. 

19. For the Mom Who Needs Space: John Boos Block

There’s nothing more annoying than when ingredients start to spill off the cutting board. Solve that problem for Mom with this large Boos Block that can live on the counter at all times. The stylish wood makes it attractive enough to use as a serving board, and it’s a super functional cutting board for all kinds of knife work. With regular care and oiling, this board will last her for many years to come. 

20. For the Mom Who Appreciates Nice Scents: Voluspa Saijo Persimmon Luxe Candle

I have been loving the Saijo Persimmon scent from Voluspa lately. It’s rich with persimmon, nectarine, white peach, red currant, and cassis with jasmine for a fruity and floral scent. The pretty jar doubles as a piece of decor, and Mom can burn it for up to 80 hours, so she’ll be enjoying it for months to come!

21. For the Caffeine Addict: Nespresso CitiZ Coffee and Espresso Machine

But first, coffee. For moms who start their day with a great cup of coffee, this machine is a must and makes it so easy for me to get my morning brew. Using Nespresso pods, you can quickly make cups of coffee or espresso without any fuss. It comes with a milk frother, so you can use it to make lattes, and I like how sleek and compact it looks on my counter.

22. For the Mom Who Deserves An Upgrade: Le Creuset Nonstick Cookware Set

If Mom’s kitchen set is looking a little worse for the wear, give her a well deserved upgrade. This six piece LeCrueset cookware set is non-stick for easy clean up, and you can use less oil when cooking. I can confirm these pans are durable—you can put them in the dishwasher, in the oven up to 450 degrees, and even use metal utensils on them. The surface gets excellent caramelization and they work on any type of stove top.

23. For the Meal Prepping Mom: OXO Good Grips V-Blade Mandoline Slicer

A mandoline slicer might be one of those Mother’s Day gifts Mom never knew she needed. I love mine from OXO and it’s the best mandoline I’ve ever used! It has a kickstand design that stands up on its own, and it comes with a large, easy-to-grip food holder that keeps your fingers well away from the blades as you slice. It makes making everything from Pickled Onions to Sauteed Julienned Summer Vegetables so much faster, and she’ll be grateful for that.

24. For the Mom Short on Time: Shark Beauty Shark SmoothStyle Blow Dryer Brush

This styling brush magically straightens and blow dries hair simultaneously, which is just what any mom needs before she rushes out the door! It tackles two jobs at once: The blow dryer brush works on damp hair, while the heated comb acts as a smoothing straightener. It works on all hair types, and it will seriously save her time in the morning to get ready before work or do a quick touch-up before date night. 

25. For the Mom Who Loves Smoothies: Ninja Smoothie Bowl Maker

Smoothie bowls are regular smoothie’s luxurious older sister can be loaded with healthy, yummy toppings for an extra boost in the morning. Help mom turn the kitchen into an acai bowl shop with this smoothie bowl maker from Ninja. It’s powerful enough to blend frozen fruit without a ton of liquid for that perfect, creamy texture. And she can use it to make ice creams and even homemade nut butter.

Something about a tan really boosts my mood and with these Drunk Elephant Bronzing drops I can get a glow without worrying about sun damage. This product gives so much more than just a glow. It’s a serum that defends against pollution and targets dark spots, dullness, and fine lines. I like mixing it with my moisturizer in the morning—just don’t forget to add a layer of SPF.

28. For the Mom Who Loves Breakfast: Dash Rapid Egg Cooker

Eggs are the perfect addition to salads, grain bowls, and easy toasts. I’m all about some extra protein, and this cult-favorite gadget takes the guesswork out of making poached, soft boiled, and hard boiled eggs. They’re perfectly cooked every time, and it can fit up to six eggs, and save up some space on the stovetop. It’s so handy she’ll find some daily use out of it, and it won’t take up too much kitchen space either. 

29. For the Foodie Mom: Brightland Essential Capsule

If Mom cares about the quality of olive oil or vinegar she uses, this package from Brightland is the perfect thing. It comes with two of the brand’s popular olive oils and two fruit-infused vinegars that are perfect for making salad dressings and drizzling onto meals. The Awake olive oil is a bit crisper for roasting or added to stews, while the Alive olive oil makes for great dressings and marinades. No matter what she uses them for, she’ll appreciate that the ingredients have been sourced from small family farms in California.

30. For the Mom Who Always Smells Nice: New Perfume

Perfume always makes a good Mother’s Day gift! I love both of these perfumes: they are light and sweet, just like Mom. The L’Occitane Herbae has an herbal grassy scent that isn’t too overwhelming and makes a good everyday perfume. The Tom Ford Soleil Blanc is one of my go-to’s for date nights and parties and has a warmer smell with notes of amber and coco de mer. The bottles also are small, so she can travel with them.

I love my Zina sneakers! The shiny material is so fun and stylish, but they are still super comfortable and practical. I love these sneakers for long walks and travel days, and they would make one of the best Mother’s Day gifts for anyone who is always on the go! They come in a ton of other colors and patterns and colors if she isn’t a fan of sparkle.

32. For the Sentimental Mom: Mom’s One Line A Day Journal

Mom is super busy every single day and sometimes life can feel like a blur. This journal will give her a second to slow down and write down an accomplishment or something that made her smile that day. There’s room to jot down a memory each day for the next five years (that’s 1,825 days!) and she’ll get sentimental look back on it all when she’s done filling it out.

33. For the Mom Who Likes Chunky Jewelry: Bottlecap Link Bracelet

This bottle top-inspired bracelet was made for layering. I think it would be great for dressing up for date night with a black dress and heels. It comes in a pretty silver or gold-plated option, so you can pick the one that matches mom’s jewelry best.

34. For the Mom Who Loves Cookbooks: Hearth & Hand Wood Cookbook Holder

The most challenging part of using a cookbook is trying to keep it open while using it. It’s too easy for pages to flip or for sauce to drip on it when you’re going back and forth from the recipe to the page. Plus, having a book laying flat takes up some precious counter space. This stunning wooden cookbook holder is stunning and props up a recipe perfectly. She can even use it to permanently display Skinnytaste Simple on her countertop even when she’s not cooking from it!

35. For the Home Chef: Global Takashi 7-Piece Knife Block Set

Sharp, high-quality knives make cooking safer and easier. I love my Global knife set, and it’s one of the best Mother’s Day gifts. The seven-piece set comes in a stylish wooden block that she can set on the counter for easy access. It includes all the knives you’ll ever need: paring knives, a chef’s knife, a bread knife, a vegetable peeler, and even a sharpening tool. The ergonomic handles are comfortable to hold during big meal prep sessions, and the Japanese stainless steel cuts through ingredients cleanly and easily.
