This post is all about 17 BEST gifts for Mom.
Mom’s need to feel loved and appreciated just like the rest of us! Their tireless efforts are often taken for granted and sometimes go unnoticed. With Mother’s Day approaching, it’s the perfect time to redeem yourself and give back to HER.
These 17 BEST gifts for mom are guaranteed to WOW her at any age and make her feel cool, stylish, and of course, appreciated. Mom’s are still kids at heart too, and they definitely enjoy opening presents and getting gift items that make them feel excited and like a brand new woman.
Remember, moms have one of the hardest jobs in the world, and they need to be HONORED. So, whatever occasion you’re celebrating with mom, make sure to gift HER with something she’ll remember long after the day has passed.
Let’s jump into the list so you, too, can start obsessing. FYI, these gifts will be LOVED by any woman.
17 BEST GIFTS FOR MOM
1. APL SNEAKERS
APL, which stands for Athletic Propulsion Labs, are the sneakers SHE NEEDS TO OWN. Are they on the more expensive side? Yes, (starting at $165), but she or you have probably spent that much on Nikes, and these are the under-the-radar cool she needs in her life.
Celebrities (like Kardashians and Oprah) and fitness stars love them, and they were so effective athletically they were once banned by the NBA for being deemed too much of a competitive advantage.
APL’s are incredibly comfortable and stylish, so she doesn’t have to be an athlete to appreciate them. Women of all ages (and men too) obsess over these sneakers, and I promise you CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS GIFT. Follow APL on Instagram for the latest trends.
Purchase APL Sneakers on AMAZON.
2. EDGE CHAMPAGNE GLASSES
The EDGE champagne glass by Crate & Barrel has an EDGE of coolness and will make her want to pop open some bubbly ASAP. Tall and slender with a smooth edge at the bottom, these glasses stand out from any traditional champagne glass she’s owned before.
They sell for $12.95 each, and with close to 900 five-star reviews, it’s safe to say this would be a PERFECT gift for her. Pair these glasses with a bottle of this fine champagne, and she’ll be a happy mommy.
Purchase EDGE Champagne glasses at CRATE & BARREL.
3. BALENCIAGA KNOCK-OFF BAG
This hobo bag resembles the Balenciaga tassel bag currently selling for $2250 at Neiman Marcus. While the two bags are shaped differently, you cannot deny their resemblances.
This bag comes in several different colors (the best being black with gunmetal hardware), and it’s versatile with TO DIE FOR looks. And you CANNOT beat its price at under $35! There are two different sizes to choose from, and their reviews (8,500, 4.5-star reviews) back up its beauty.

17. AGATE CHEESE BOARD
This is one of the best gifts for mom, especially if she loves entertaining! Agate cheese boards are the latest thing to own in the cheese board world, making it a perfect trending gift for her.
I will also include a link below for a black slate cheese board for two reasons. One, it’s a really cool and functional board to use even when she’s not displaying cheese (think sushi), and two, its price is a bit kinder than the agate board.
