Gifts Moms Want This Year

I feel like these past few years need to be the YEARS of the Mom. Even though we are coming out of the pandemic and everything related to it, moms are so much more pressure on them than ever before. Many moms haven’t had much time for self-care and fun activities.

Moms deserve a little pampering all year long. It was with that in mind that we created this gift guide of gifts moms want this year for Mother’s Day, holidays, and birthdays. Gift mom gifts that will make her feel special, loved, and appreciated long after the holiday has passed.

  • moms could enjoy using,
  • would make mom’s life a bit easier,
  • would allow her a distraction from her day-to-day,
  • or allowed mom to pamper herself a bit.

NEW for 2022 Gifts Moms Want This Year

Gifts for mom’s kitchen

What kind of items for the kitchen are on mom’s wish list? How about some new pans or pots? For the mom who prefers to fill her space only with things that are beautiful, made with care and attention, and are going to make cooking and baking more convenient, these recommendations would be great gifts for mom.

Anolon Advanced Home Hard Anodized Nonstick Deep Grill Pan 11 inch

With the Anolon Advanced Home Hard Anodized Nonstick Deep Grill Pan, mom can grill up dinners even in the winter, without having to go outside.

Anolon Advanced Home Hard Anodized Nonstick Deep Grill Pan

The Infinity Slide nonstick surface makes cooking easy.

Raised ridges and pour spouts add to that ease because draining grease and oil doesn’t have to be so messy. By using a square pan versus a similar circular pan, I can fit more pieces of chicken, steak, or whatever I’m grilling.

The Anolon Advanced Home Hard Anodized Nonstick Deep Grill Pan 11-inch is available on Amazon in a variety of colors.

Farberware Classic 3-Quart Saucepot with Steamer Insert

Steaming up a side dish or a small serving, save mom the trouble of lugging out the big steamer. Get her the Farberware Classic 3-Quart Saucepot with Steamer Insert. It’s oven-safe and dishwasher-safe and available on Amazon.

Anolon Advanced Bakeware 9-Inch Square Non-Stick Spring Form Pan

Does mom love to bake? If so, she’s going to love this 9-Inch Square Spring Form Pan. It’s perfect for brownies or square-shaped cakes and cheesecakes. With detachable sides and an extended bottom, the bottom serves double duty as a serving plate for the yummy dessert mom just made.

Gifts for mom Anolon Advanced Bakeware 9-Inch Square Non-Stick Spring Form Pan

Farberware Classic Series 8-Quart Stockpot with Straining Lid

Ever try to drain a large pot of pasta for a family of 5? It can be challenging. The pot is heavy and the force of all that pasta can make a strainer wobble and potentially fall over. Enter the solution, Farberware’s 8-Quart Stockpot. It comes with a straining lid that locks in place.

Farberware Classic Series 8-Quart Stockpot with Straining Lid

When it comes time to drain the pasta, lock the lid in place, and drain the water over the sink. A strainer won’t be needed and the pasta will stay in the pot. Add the sauce to the pot or do like we do and keep the sauce on the side for the kids to add as much or as little as they want. With this pot, Family Pasta Nights are much less messy.

The Farberware 8-Quart Stockpot with Straining Lid is available on Amazon.

Rachael Ray Over the Sink Colander

This Rachael Ray Over the Sink Colander is my new favorite strainer. Drain, strain, and rinse pasta, rice, fruits, seafood, veggies, and more while the adjustable arms allow the strainer to rest securely over the sink. No more shifting strainers as mom drains out pasta for the next family dinner. The Rachael Ray Over the Sink Colander is available on Amazon for less than $30 making it a great affordable gift for mom.

Gifts for mom’s oasis, Backyard Discovery’s Potting Table/Serving Bar

Whether mom’s oasis is the backyard by the pool, a patio, or her garden, this Acacia Wood Potting Table/Serving Bar is something she’s going to love to add to it.

Poolside or on the patio, mom can use it as a space for snacks or drinks. The flat surface is deep enough to store drinks or glasses towards the back, while having room for plates and food in the front. The upper shelf can hold smaller glasses, condiments, sunscreen, or even a small Bluetooth speaker. Store extra snacks, beach towels, or a small cooler down below.

In the garden, mom can use it as a planting center. The flat surface provides mom a spot to plant. The shelf below serves as a spot for storing extra pots, bags of soil, or other large items. The higher minishelf can hold gardening tools or small pots.

Backyard Discovery's Potting Table/Serving Bar

The Backyard Discovery Potting Table/Serving Bar is available on Amazon or the Backyard Discovery website.

For the mom that’s on her feet a lot, Copper Fit Ankle Length Sport Socks

Moms who teach, serve as nurses, work as servers, or who otherwise are on their feet all day deserve socks that can help reduce foot discomfort. I know I’m appreciating the cushioning comfort of the Copper Fit Ankle Length Sport Socks on days I’m in the classroom as a substitute teacher. The padding from the socks makes a difference to my feet.

Worldfinds Kantha Beaded Necklace and Earrings

This Intertwining Kantha Necklace and Kantha Beaded Teardrop Earrings is STILL one my favorite newer pieces of jewelry. When WorldFinds invited me to shop their collection for items to review, I fell in love with these two pieces. I just wasn’t sure if they would be as gorgeous in person. They are! The colors are so rich, the jewelry set is a fabulous way to dress up and sweater or dress. The pieces are sold separately and each comes packed in a cloth bag for safe storage.

Worldfinds Kantha Beaded Necklace and Earrings are a great and affordable gift for moms.

The Intertwining Kantha Necklace is a five-strand statement necklace that will have you daydreaming of the tropics with its bright colors and patterns! Each piece is made from recycled Kantha textiles, so colors and patterns are all one-of-a-kind and will vary. It’s priced at $45 on their site.

Like the necklace, the Kantha Beaded Teardrop Earrings are one-of-a-kind and made from fabric beads from recycled Kantha textiles and golden beads. The earrings are priced at $15.

More special gifts for moms

CHI Volumizer 4-In-1 Blowout Brush

The CHI Volumizer 4-In-1 Blowout Brush is the blowdryer every mom needs. When my hairdryer burnt out a few years back, I never replaced it. The process of blowdrying my long hair was always so time-consuming I really didn’t have the time for it. Then, I was sent a CHI Volumizer 4-In-1 Blowout Brush to review.

I love it! If you’ve ever had a salon blowout where your stylist has a blow dryer in one hand and a brush in the other, you can now have the same experience with one hand. The CHI Volumizer 4-In-1 Blowout Brush is like a blow dryer with a brush attached to it. I am able to blow dry and style my hair quicker than ever before and achieve the same look as if I had gone to my stylist. I can easily switch between the 4 attachments to achieve the look I wanted.

This blowout brush includes four attachments for unlimited styling options. Whether you’re looking for a straight, wavy, or curly style, this brush has you covered! The CHI Volumizer is available on Amazon.
