You love your mother, of course, but would it be too much to ask for her to be just the teensiest bit easier to shop for? (Honestly yes it would — she raised you). But whether you’re working with a matriarch who claims she doesn’t want anything or returns any item she’s gifted, or if you’re just plain stumped on what to get the woman who has everything, we’ve got your back. There are a few universally mom-pleasing gifts out there; think relaxing gifts like silky pajamas and weighted blankets, personalized memories like photo albums, and handy cookware for the lady that fed you every day as a kid. We’ve even thrown in some blue-light glasses to protect mom’s eyes as she keeps up with the news on her laptop and smartphone.
We put together a list of unique, thoughtful gifts that even the choosiest moms will love, so you’ll be heading into the holiday season well-armed for success. And mom will be heading into 2020 with everything she needs to relax into her own bubble of domestic bliss at the end of a long day.
