As a As a mother myself, I know it’s the best gift you can give your mother Hey you. Vaccines, effective N95 masks and at-home tests for Covid-19 are now widely available, so traveling to see your parents and loved ones in person is possible (although flying is more painful than ever). But if you don’t want to reach for it empty-handed, you better skip it, because Mother’s Day is just around the corner on May 14. Struggling to find ideas? We have lots of gift ideas below.
Your mom may be the person you love most in the world, but she probably has a lot of other things to do, like work, serve on nonprofit boards, or hang out with friends. I consulted other WIRED parents for their favorite picks. These are our top gift ideas to help moms work from home, read their books, or get into the world of gaming while on vacation. And while you’re at it, check out our other product guides, like the best gift ideas for new parents , the best podcasts for kids , or the best tablets for kids .
Updated April 2023: We’ve removed older picks and added new ones like Victrola Re-Spin and Dryrobe Advance.
