Mom Stoneware Mug
Mugs are personal but they’re also fun and practical gifts for anyone who’s hard to shop for. Unless you know exactly what style she’ll like opt for a simple mug like this stoneware option.
Birth Flower Necklace
Personalized gifts are an easy way to win over picky moms on Mother’s Day. This one is easy; all you need to know is her birth month and you’ll get a necklace with her birth flower and birthstone.
Candles are great gifts because they’re consumable, just be sure to get a scent that mom will like. This one is a funny option if you’re not sure what to get.
Tokyo Compact Backpack
These gorgeous bags double as a tote, backpack, and laptop bag. Grab one in a neutral color like black for a practical gift that even the pickiest of moms will appreciate.
Grapefruit Bath Set
Bath sets are another “consumable” gift that’s great for picky moms who don’t want extra stuff in their home. Grab something with a fun, spring scent like grapefruit; I love the way this one is packaged. It would also make a great long distance gift idea!
Skip the tacky Mother’s Day shirts for picky moms and opt for something stylish and trendy, but still unique. This one is in a beautiful boho green color and has simple embroidery on the collar and sleeve. Order it customized with her child’s name.
You can’t go wrong with tech gifts when it comes to picky moms, especially if she doesn’t have a smart watch yet. I like the Apple Watch because it has a lot of mom-approved features and is easy to use, but grab the brand you feel she’d prefer.
Beside Light and Wireless Charger
These are super practical for charging your cell phone in the bedroom. No more ugly cords dangling from the nightstand and it doubles as a nightlight too.
Personalized Makeup Bag
A simple gift, this can be paired with some new makeup or brushes, or just a gift certificate to her favorite makeup store.
Luxury Self Care Gift Set
Moms work hard and never seem to take enough time for themselves. Force mom to relax a little with a self care gift set, but make sure it’s filled with high quality luxury items that even the pickiest mom will love.
Bottle of Wine
You really can’t go wrong with a bottle of wine for Mother’s Day! Pick up mom’s favorite bottle and add a fun wine label like this one for a customized gift.
Stainless Steel Water Bottle
You really can’t have too many water bottles but this is a great chance to get mom a nice one that she’ll actually want to take out with her.
Build Your Own Gift Set
Anything customizable is great for picky moms and this set is no exception. Choose the products and scents you know she’ll love and you’ll end up with a box that’s ready to give in person or sent by mail.
Any massage gift is a great idea for moms; after all, who can be picky about a massage? I love this hand massager, though. It’s great for moms who work hard and end up sore or anyone who needs a little pampering.
Personalized Drink Coasters
These gorgeous drink coasters are a great addition to a mom’s home or bar. I love the way they can be personalized with her initials.
Mom is sure to appreciate the love and thought that went into selecting the perfect Mother’s Day gift for her. You can certainly make this a Mother’s Day that she will never forget.
