Every year I say that I don't want anything for Mother's Day, and every year I am lying through my teeth. Of course I want a Mother's Day gift. Every mom, even those who swear they just want to spend the day with their kids, secretly hope to wake up to at least one little surprise. Handmade gifts are always cherished, but if your favorite mom is the kind who never shops for herself, it may be time to hit the store. Hating the mall is no excuse, as there are plenty of Mother's Day gifts from Amazon that can be at your doorstep in just two days.
If you've never shopped at Amazon, first of all, welcome to planet Earth. Amazon has just about anything you could ever want or need, and at a better price than most brick and mortar stores. Prime members get free two-day shipping on eligible items, so the farthest you have to walk to get Mom the best gift ever is to your front door. Most items can be returned for free, so if sizing is off, or don't love the quality, you can just send it right back. It's totally a win, win.
Here are some Mother's Day gift ideas that you can order for Mom from the comfort of your smartphone.
1. For The Multitasking Mom
I love to listen to audiobooks and podcasts while I clean the house, do yard work, and suds up in the shower. If you have a multitasking mom in your life, get her this portable wireless and waterproof Bluetooth speaker ($35) so that she can listen to her stories while she tackles the world.
2. For The Trendy Mom
3. For The Preppy Mom
4. For The Coiffed Mom
Moms don't have a lot of time to spend on their hair , but that doesn't mean they don't want it to look good. Splurge and buy her this Dyson supersonic hair dryer ($500) for Mother's Day. Since it will cut her hair drying time in half, it will be like you are giving her the gift of more free time, too.
5. For The Baking Mom
6. For The Bookworm Mom
7. For The Fit Mom
Who says that fitness trackers have to be big and bulky? Your fit mom will love the slim Fitbit Flex 2 ($85) this Mother's Day. She can swim with it over the summer, and the ultra-thin tracker can be removed and placed in specialty bands, bangles, and pendants to suit her style.
8. For The Mom Who's Over It
9. For The Beach Loving Mom
10. For The Mom Who Wants To Work It
Confession: I've had this Mitang floral swimsuit ($20) in my Amazon shopping cart for weeks, so I almost didn't share it out of fear that it would sell out. I guess it's time to pull the trigger. If the mom in your life is ready to work it poolside this summer, this is a perfect gift for her (just make sure to check the size guide before ordering.)
11. For The Professional Mom
12. For The Hungry Mom
No one likes to stand in the kitchen for hours preparing dinner every night, not even Mama. Splurge on the Instant Pot electric pressure cooker ($98) this Mother's Day and dinner can be ready in 30 minutes flat. As a plus, promise to do all of the cooking for the next month, because that's what she really wants.
13. For The Mom Who Has It All
If you're not quite sure what to get mom this year, consider a gift membership to Amazon Prime ($99). She will get free two-day shipping most Prime items, she will have access to thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, she can stream millions of songs and thousands of playlists on Prime Music and she can get free Kindle e-books, and unlimited photo storage. I would pay the $99 just to watch the pilot episode of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
