Calling all children, grandchildren, godchildren, stepchildren, etc: Mother’s Day is almost upon us. If that puts you into a state of panic, don’t worry. While there’s plenty of time left to get Mom the perfect present, you still don’t want to be caught scrambling at the last minute. To prevent you from any undue stress, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of fantastic Mother’s Day gifts you can buy from a place you already have bookmarked and in your favorites: Amazon.
From the perfect pair of Ugg slippers (according to our tester) to our favorite pasta maker, Amazon has a great selection of gifts your mom will simply adore—and you won't have to worry about shipping delays as long as your order in advance. Here are 15 gifts we recommend on Amazon for Mother's Day 2021.
1. For the glam mom: The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer Brush
Not only do we love this hair dryer, but the famous Revlon device has over 191,000 rave reviews on Amazon, so we know your Mom will too. Why is it so amazing? The hair dryer/brush combo dries and straightens hair at the same time while enhancing volume and shine for the ultimate fresh-from-the-salon look. She can alternate between three heat settings and will experience more mobility with the lightweight ergonomic handheld design. She'll love the fact she won't have to struggle to hold both the hair dryer and brush with this amazing combo tool.
2. For the mom whose feet need a break: Ugg Slippers
If your mom is on her feet most of the day, give her the gift of slippers. After testing some of the most popular slippers out there recently, we deemed the Ugg Scuffette II slippers the best pair for women. Our tester claims the fluffy wool lining is "basically a giant hug for your feet" and that they're easy to slide on and off. Plus, these luxurious slippers are true to size, so you don't need to worry if they’ll fit—as long as you know her shoe size.
3. For the mom who loves to read: Kindle Paperwhite
Give Mom the gift of her favorite books, all in one place. The Paperwhite is the best Kindle we've tested and over 94,000 reviewers on Amazon agree. It has tons of storage space, is glare-free, and is waterproof, so Mom can bring it along to the pool or beach this summer. When she’d rather listen to a story as opposed to reading, this Kindle pairs seamlessly with Audible so she can have the best of both worlds. It comes in two different sizes and both with and without ads. Prices vary depending on what you select.
4. For the mom who loves to be cozy: The Comfy
If Mom is often seen ensconced in blankets, The Comfy will be her new favorite thing. Lined with faux-sherpa and featuring a front pocket and oversized fluffy hood, it’s perfect for lounging at home or keeping warm during seasonal outdoor activities. Plus, it’s one-size-fits-all making ordering super simple and worry-free. The Comfy has the approval of our style editor, Amanda, and is sure to be a hit if your mom loves to lounge. Pick from a variety of colors like blush, black, and even fun patterns like leopard print for the one that’s just right for Mom.
5. For the mom who loves to cook: An Instant Pot
For the past couple of years, Instant Pots have been all the rage for both advanced home chefs and beginners. What is an Instant Pot, you ask? It’s a multi-cooker, meaning it does all the things. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker, the list goes on. If your mom doesn't own an Instant Pot yet (or they have an older model), consider giving them the best multi-cooker we've ever tested, the Instant Pot Ultra.
6. For the mom always on her iPhone: Apple Watch
If your mom is attached to her iPhone, she would love an Apple Watch. We tested the Apple Watch Series 6 and it was crowned the best smartwatch we've ever tried. Give the gift of our favorite smartwatch so they can have all of their notifications, music, and texts at their fingertips all the time.
7. For the mom who loves being pampered: A foot spa
Treat Mom to a spa-like experience at home with a foot spa. The Ivation Foot Spa Massager is our favorite foot spa because it has adjustable heating and includes massage rollers that really make you feel pampered. If she misses regular trips to the spa—or could really just use a break—this gift is sure to please.
8. For the mom who multi-tasks: A bed tray for multi-tasking while lounging
When you can’t be there to bring her breakfast in bed each Mother’s Day, this top-rated multi-use tray will do the trick. Featuring a well-placed slot to hold tablets, phones, and even tablets at two different angles, she can work, video chat, and eat food all while lounging in bed. Made from bamboo, the tray also has folding legs for easy storage when not in use.
9. For the techy mom: This rose gold charging station
Help keep all Mom’s Apple devices charged and ready to go with Olebr's charging station. The device has a 4-star rating from over 20,000 reviews and comes with three separate stands for her iPhone, Apple Watch, and Airpods all in one. Plus, it’s easy to assemble and is great for hands-free video chatting and voice-to-text. Reviewers love how sturdy it is and how it helps to efficiently organize charging cables for less mess. While it’s compatible with a variety of devices, just be sure to check that Mom’s products comply before purchasing.
10. For the mom who loves her iced coffees: Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Does your mom sip iced coffee all year round even when the temperature dips below zero? If so, give her the gift of her very own cold brew coffee maker. The Takeya is our favorite cold brew coffee maker. We love how easy it is to use and clean and the quality coffee it makes. If your mom is always running to the coffee shop, this gift will save her time and money, and she'll surely thank you for it later.
11. For the mom who loves fried food and also eating healthy: An air fryer
Air fryers have been one of the trendiest kitchen gadgets for a while now, as they offer a way to make home-cooked fried food that’s healthier than regular fried food. The Phillips Airfryer XXL is the best air fryer we tested and would make a great gift for any mom who likes to cook and eat semi-healthy.
12. For the mom with a regular beauty routine: Lighted makeup mirror
If you’re shopping for a mom who's into beauty products, it can be hard to buy them the makeup and skincare items they need and love if you have no idea what they use. Something easy to get the makeup-loving mom in your life, though, is an accessory that enhances the experience of putting makeup on: a lighted makeup mirror! The Deweisn Lighted Makeup Mirror is the best value makeup mirror we tested, as it provides perfect views and lighting for optimal makeup application. For under $25, you can help her look flawless every day with this unique gift idea.
13. For the mom who loves experimenting in the kitchen: A pasta maker
If you’re shopping for a mom who enjoys cooking and loves Italian food, a pasta maker would make for a fun gift. It’s not just a gadget. It’s also an experience! How fun would it be for your mom to learn to make pasta in the comfort of her own kitchen?! Our favorite pasta maker is the Marcato Atlas 150, and it's currently in stock on Amazon. It was sold out for a while, so be sure to get it while it's available.
14. For the one who could use a break from cleaning: A robot vacuum
We love robot vacuums at Reviewed and so do our readers. In fact, one of the things our readers continue to buy over and over is robot vacuums. The Eufy RoboVac 11s is the best affordable robot vacuum we’ve ever tested and would make a great gift for any mom, whether she enjoys cleaning or not. While the Eufy is definitely more of a splurge at over $200 in price, the best robot vacuum we’ve ever tested is a splurge multiplied by 10. For $799, you can give the gift of our favorite robot vacuum—the iRobot Roomba i7+. No matter what your budget is, a robot vacuum is always a good choice for a gift.
- Get the Eufy RoboVac 11s on Amazon for $219.99

15. For the mom who’s simply the best: A candle that tells her so
If all else fails, say it with a candle. These candles in particular have a gorgeous jasmine top note scent with wood and cream undertones that’ll have everyone saying, “It smells amazing in here!” Mom will also love that it has a 40+ hour burn time and is non-toxic and cruelty-free. Some reviewers do note that although the candle is small, its scent is still powerful enough to fill a room, but delicate enough to not be overpowering.
