I feel like these past few years need to be the YEARS of the Mom. With the pandemic and everything related to it, moms have had more pressure on them than ever before. They’ve had all their normal mom responsibilities while also trying to work from home, teach from home, and possibly teach your kids from their home. Many moms haven’t even had much time for self-care and fun activities. While other moms are serving their communities in more ways than ever before. If ever there was a year that moms deserved a little pampering and extra THIS is the year for it. 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 this year her best ever.

NEW for 2021 Gifts Moms Want This Year
The Ultimate Custom Planner for Moms (or Anyone) That Have Too Much To Do
I was introduced to the PurpleTrail custom planner a few months back and it has changed how I plan and keep my mom life organized. I refer to it as the ultimate planner for moms (like me) that have too much to do.
I remember my early days of nursing my boys. It always seemed so difficult to do in public. I was never sure I had everything covered. So unless I was among friends, with family, or in a ‘safe’ place I tried to avoid it. I wish the KeaBabies Multi-Use Cover were something that existed back then. It would have made those experiences more doable and comfortable for me and I am sure for my sons as well.
The versatile KeaBabies Multi-Use Cover features buttery soft, breathable and stretchy premium quality fabric. It was designed for multiple uses, including nursing cover, car seat canopy, shopping cart cover, infinity scarf, and more. What mom doesn’t love a product that can make her life easier by serving in more than one way.
The cover is specifically designed to provide maximum airflow to keep moms and babies comfortable while being covered in public places. It’s available in 9 gorgeous designs, such as Dainty Bloom, Gingham and Starry Charm, and each cover comes with its own carrying bag. The KeaBabies Multi-Use Cover is available as an Amazon Prime product available for less than $15. Order it today for a mom or mom-to-be.

This Intertwining Kantha Necklace and Kantha Beaded Teardrop Earrings is STILL one my favorite newer pieces of jewelry.

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.

These EQUO straws are going to be the new must-have straws for mom's favorite beverages. We ALL know the harm plastic straws can do to the environment, but traditional reusable straws aren't so convenient for on-the-go moms. I'm either always forgetting to bring them in the house to rewash or forgetting to repack them in my bag after they've been washed.
Mom can feel good about throwing away these straws because they are biodegrade. In fact, after using them in drinks I've brought my straws out to the garden to help support our plants like temporary garden stakes.
There are currently 4 varieties:
Rice Straws – Made from rice and tapioca starch and available in plant-based, natural colors including white, green, pink, blue, yellow (After use, these can be cooked down and are fully edible - you can snack on them while you're drinking if you're hungry).
Dried Grass Straws – Made from naturally tube-shaped grass and available in green (also a natural chew/tug-of-war toy for pets, or crunch them if fidgety, to get the same satisfaction as popping bubble wrap). Gather a bunch of them together to make a natural at-home bee-hive!
Coconut Straws – Made from fermented coconut water, offering a tropical twist on an everyday product, and available in ivory white with a cool textured design.
Sugarcane Straws – Made from sugarcane, with a light sweet aroma, and available in a variety of sizes (including wide sizes for specialty drinks/bubble tea). Available in light brown (speckled), and washable for reuse within one day.
Learn about the entire EQUO line in their Amazon store.

In order to help light things up, the compact design allows you to attach it anywhere using the attached rope. The tape light also features high and low light settings, making it more diverse for your on-the-go needs.
Think about all the ways you use tape...at the office, at school, everywhere around the house...except in the kitchen. The Kitchen Stickin Tape Dispenser aims to change that. With this handy dispenser moms can use regular painter's tape to seal bags and boxes in the pantry, fridge, freezer and label foods or leftovers in the fridge.

My teens and I can not stop going for the marshmallow jar for more.
Roast them over a fire. Add them to your s'mores. Drop them in a cup of hot chocolate. Or just eat them individually. No matter which way your mom eats them, she will enjoy them! Better get extras for yourself, just in case mom doesn't want to share.
Sugar Plum's Chocolate Pretzel Passion Gift Tray includes a variety of twenty-three pieces of chocolate-dipped logs covered in chocolate candy pieces, chocolate sandwich cookie logs, double chocolate chip pretzels, and pretzels dipped in our signature milk, dark, and white chocolates with even more chocolate drizzled on top and finished with sprinkles.

Easy Plants & Pretty Flowers Moms will Love
Moms love easy plants and pretty flowers. There's just something about having them to look at and brighten up a room. It's especially helpful if they're low maintenance. So even if moms get busy and forget to water them everyday the plants can still thrive. These are such plants.
I have had my Just Add Ice Orchid sample for a few months now, and I have never had a plant, so pretty that has been so easy to care for. THREE, yes 3 cubes of ice is all it requires to bloom and stay in bloom.
Just Add Ice says watering with ice is the easiest way to ensure your orchid gets just the right amount of water - not too much or too little. It's hard to believe it's true, but my own plant looks better than it did when the sample was first sent to me. There are about 10 blooms on it. The orchid must also be kept in bright, indirect light. I've experimented with different locations in my home and I've found the perfect spot for us is in the kitchen, away from windows. It's so pretty to look up from my desk to see it there. Get one for your mom. She'll love it.
Pictures is the Arch Shape in the Whimsical Style, Personalize Floral Arrangement. Told here as a story of new beginnings (daffodils), the patience it takes to get there (allium), and the love at the table for all who journey there together (tulips).
For moms who value gifting and experiencing elegant personalized florals, Floracracy is the only online flower company offering custom premium arrangements designed to a person's style or to share a message through the language of flowers. Arrangements are made in-house exclusively, packaged in our sustainable box, and shipped cooled across the lower 48 states.
Literary Blooms makes a different kind of flower for mom. Imagine the pages of mom's favorite novel being turned into a unique gift. That's just what they do. Literary Blooms handmakes beautiful roses from the pages of classic books.
Created by a mother-daughter duo who takes pride in upcycling books that can no longer be donated or sold due to condition, every flower is hand cut and shaped with a green leafy stem attached.
Downtime Activities for Moms
When mom gets a few moments to herself, let her have something fun to turn to. These kits, crafts, and gifts will help mom escape, for a little while, without having to leave the house.
Dedicated to targeting each of the five senses, calmbox features 6-8 handpicked items to help keep moms grounded, calm and tranquil. From healthy treats to aromatherapy to skincare to meditation guides, there’s something for everyone who is looking for some solo R&R. It's a monthly subscription box program that promises to deliver products each month to help moms relax and unwind.
When my box arrived it looked small but it was packed with quite a bit to help this mom escape the day-to-day demands of motherhood. Relaxing scents filled the air as I gently moved away the packing to reveal calming products like a lavender-scented bath bomb, a coastal-smelling handmade bar of soap, a chakra-balancing oil blend and more.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

What's on mom's bucket list? Does she want to watch the top 100 kids movies with you or more grown up movies? Is she a traveler that wants to explore the globe? Is she a reader that would love to get through a list of 100 books worth reading?

There's no denying moms don't get enough rest. So let's make sure the sleep she does get is restorative and rejuvenating.
Sleepletics offers soft, luxurious Celliant® Performance Sheets made with Celliant mineral-infused yarns. It recycles mom's/the sleeper's body heat and reflect its back as therapeutic infrared light during sleep; naturally increasing blood flow to muscles and improving local circulation. The fabric also helps to regulate body temperature.
The result is a better sleep for moms to help her wake up energized for another day.
Eww! Phones, charging cords, eye glasses... all those things mom is carrying in her purse or diaper bag can get so gross, especially with germs we can't see. Help mom wipe them out with the Mundus Pro Sanitizer and Dual Wireless Charger.
It's the only UV-C disinfecting device that eliminates 99.998% of viruses and bacteria in one fast 8-minute cycle, certified effective and safe by the EPA and the independent laboratories Intertek, SGS and Gmicro. It's so simple to use. Put the germ-covered item in the device. Close the lid, and press the small button on the front. Eight minutes later everything inside is sterilized.
Mine sits on a corner of my desk. It's easily accessible so that everyone in the family can use as need. It doesn't take up much room, yet it's big enough to hold my phone and a few other items.
The Rio Easy in, Easy Out backpack chair featuring a removable cooler bag and backback-style straps. This aluminum backpack chair means moms can hold their children's hands AND carry their chair and cooler without any struggles. Rio can't promise moms still won't be scanning the beach keeping track of their children or they won't beg her to build sand castles, but at least the walk to the beach will be easier and mom will always have her own special seat.
