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.
Our guide of gifts moms want for Christmas includes gifts we think all moms will enjoy. We thought hard about each gift to make sure it would be a gift that
- 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.
All of these items are available for sale online to make your job of shopping for mom easy. You could even use some of these gift ideas for aunts, grandmothers, aunties, and others who take on a mothering role with kids!
Let this mom gift guide make your shopping easier. Use this gift guide for ideas or even better shop right from our links (some are affiliates) and have everything shipped to your home. No leaving the house. No dealing with crowds or hoping you can find a parking spot. Shopping made easy.

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.
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.
The Anolon Advanced Home Hard Anodized Nonstick 9-Inch Square Spring Form Pan is available on Amazon for just $25.
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.
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.
The Backyard Discovery Potting Table/Serving Bar is available on Amazon or the Backyard Discovery website.

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.

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.
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.

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.

Chirpwood Shadows Multi-Canvas Art Kits
There is not enough time to express how much I love these Chirpwood paint by shadows sets. They are incredible and they make it easy to create beautiful works of art. No one will ever know mom had a little help with some shadows.
Paint by Shadows is everything paint-by-numbers is and everything paint-by-numbers isn’t. Everything you need to paint your version of these beautiful licensed original works of art. Each kit includes 6 canvas shadows, 6 guide images, 24 tubes of acrylic paint, 3 brushes, written and video instructions, and an optional patented TwoStick frame. (all that for $45)
Here’s how it works:
Chirpwood prints beautiful licensed art on canvas in greyscale (the shadow). The budding artist paints directly on top of the shadow using a color guide image for direction. When finished, it is more than a coloring done with paint. It is a unique version of beautiful art, ready to be proudly hung on the wall.
With Paint by Shadows kits, almost anyone can achieve good results, but for those who want more, our art-teacher-vetted instructions ensure a true learning experience.
They sent me a sample set of the Flowers kit, and I have to say I have a hard time pulling myself away from it. I would gladly give up my responsibilities for a few days just to paint. If your mom has an interest in painting or being creative this would be a great set for them. With 6 different images to paint she can definitely fill a few days or weeks being creative. She can follow the colors of the examples or create her own color scheme. I followed the instructions for trying out the techniques on scrap pieces of paper and then did my own thing using the techniques I learned. I have been so thrilled with how my paintings have been coming out.
If your mom isn't into flowers other kits include designs of beaches, lighthouses, boats, and more.
FYI - No easels needed. Because of the nature of the canvas I feel like it's actually easier to paint on them while they lay on a flat surface versus hanging from an easel.
Diamond painting is a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers and has become the hottest quarantine activity taking the crafting world by storm. Even after this quarantine has passed, this is an activity moms will enjoy. Let mom do this when she needs some downtime or work on it with her. It can be done individually or as a family activity.The Tiktok trending activity is also a favorite for celebrities include Alessandra Ambrosio, Cheryl Burke, Meghan King and Peta Murgatroyd. Who can blame them? This is an addictively fun activity. With each rhinestone placed individually, creators can walk away at anytime without worrying about where they left off.... but once you start it's so hard to walk away.
The Diamond Art Club has so many designs there is sure to be one you would love for your mom or that your mom will love. When picking out a design, purchase some accessories too. They'll help mom keep her rhinestones organized as she complete her Diamond paintings. The Diamond Art Club sent us two holiday-themed kits, one for Halloween and one for Christmas. I know they will be some of my favorite pieces of art in my home.
Hat Not Hate Quick Knit Loom
I know what you might be thinking, this kit looks like it is for kids. It is, but when my teen and I were working on the sample kit sent to us from Creativity for Kids, I couldn't help but want to help him. It's such a fun and easy way to create a knit hat or other items. Moms could easily knit away on the loom while binge watching their favorite show. With 2 hats per set, mom could easily knit a hat for you and her.
Macrame Wall Hanging Kit | Etsy
With this Macrame Wall Hanging KIT moms can create your own Wall Hanging, reminiscent of the wall hangings and plant holders our mothers and grandmothers used to macrame. Gift this Macrame Kit Beginner to a mom who loves to create beautiful things or who need a wellness, stress relief activity.
Does mom love loosing herself in a puzzle? Gift her some new ones this Christmas or for her next birthday. Not only will our list help you find some new puzzles for mom but we also share 20 tips to picking puzzles to help you find the right puzzle for mom.
Adult Red Tricycle
Would your mom like to bike alone or with you and your family?
This adult tricycle is perfect for moms who WANT to bike ride with their kids but who can’t ride or aren’t comfortable riding a traditional 2 wheel bike. (It even has a basket in the back.)
This Huffy single-speed trike has an easy step-through frame. The lightweight aluminum frame makes it easy to assemble and even easier to pedal with more speed and acceleration.
A few more ideas for gifts for moms
There were a few more gift ideas for moms that we wanted to include. They don't fit into any of our other categories, but they are gifts we have received and know other moms would love.
Pretty Home Decor Delivered Quarterly
When's the last time mom bought herself something pretty and new for the family home? If she's like me, it's been a while. Many moms would rather spoil their kids than themselves. Spoil mom with a subscription box from Designed Life Delivered.
Designed Life Delivered is owned and operated by a team of designers and decorators from Denver, CO, each with a unique passion for design and all things decor. Every 3 months they assemble a new home decor box that is seasonally inspired and incorporates the latest design trends. Each box is filled with premium one-of-a-kind home decor items that will have mom feeling special. She won't find these items in big box stores, nor will she have too.
For a sneak peek of the spring items visit their website. I loved all the items, but the vase was my favorite! I can not wait to start filling it with flowers.
Mother and Son Hand-Carved Figures
A gift to celebrate the loving relationships between a mother and her son. Willow Tree's hand-carved figures reveal their expression through body gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Each piece is designed to be open to interpretation from the viewer, but we all can agree they celebrate the love a mom has for her son.
SONGMICS 3-Tier Jewelry and hair accessories holder
Make it easier for mom to find her favorite hair accessory or that jewelry you got for her. This 3 rod organizer is a great way to keep track a collection of scrunchies, headbands, watches, bracelets, or more.
I bought ours because my collection of bracelets were hidden in a drawer and my scrunchies were taking over my dresser. Pictured in ours are Bellefixe hair accessories and 1 tree mission bracelets, both listed in this guide to Stocking Stuffers for Teens.
Enlightened Aligned Life Journal
Help mom reduce anxiety while elevating mindfulness and self-care. The Enlightened Aligned Life Journal is a 186 days journal for women who are ready to focus on creating a positive impact on their life.
The simple act of mindfulness and journaling can help you see an amazing life that surrounds you. Being grateful for the little things in life can change your perspective and your outcome daily.
Just because it’s been a crazy year and you may not want to shop in stores, doesn’t mean you can’t show your mom she’s loved with a special gift! If you’re looking for a thoughtful gift for mom, that you can buy safely and from the comfort of your own home, any of these would be a gift mom wants.
