What do moms like? We’ve got the answer!


Jewelry, flowers, and chocolates are great, but here’s a list of what moms we polled really want for Mother’s Day. We’ve even included gifts for all kinds of moms, or you could go with one mom’s response, which pretty much sums it up: “I want a Wonder Woman cape, preferably made out of diamonds, along with the statement: ‘You were right about everything, and we’d be lost without you.'”


Below, check out our list of Mother’s Day gifts for mom that she really wants.

Mother’s Day Wish #1: Clean House

iRobot Roomba 960


Being a mom is stressful, and coming home to a clean house, even if it only lasts 10 minutes, is like a little slice of heaven for us. You don’t have to hire a professional to give mom the clean house she deserves. Instead, have a robot do the work for her, a robot vacuum that is. This vacuum can be programmed to clean and certain times each day and is controlled through WiFi on the correlating app.

When you’re a mom, getting a full night’s rest without waking up to an alarm clock or a hungry child in the morning is not only a dream come true, it’s unheard of. Try treating Mom to a full night’s rest on a new mattress. This bamboo mattress from Cariloha is made from memory foam to support any sleeping position. It is also anti-microbial and is dust resistant.

Mother’s Day Wish #3: A Really Good Workout

Ultimate P.volve Bundle


Working out after baby can help boost confidence, fight postpartum depression, and act as a huge mood booster for any mama out there. But with a baby in tow it can be hard to find time to get in a good workout. Offer to take care of the kids once a week so she can go to Zumba class, or sign her up for an online program like p.volve where she can stream workouts that will tone her body and help her feel her best.

A massage, mani/pedi or facial are all wonderful gifts to show us how much we're appreciated. Older kids could get creative and set up a home spa with candles, homemade scrubs, etc. If mom wants to set up an at-home spa this gift set from Rituals includes body scrub, lotion, body and hand wash all with an intoxicating orange scent.

Mother’s Day Wish #6: Car Wash

Black & Decker Dustbuster Handheld Bagless Hand Vacuum


A vehicle free from crumbs and clutter is like a commuting oasis. Take a few minutes to clean up the stray chicken nuggets and the sippy cup that rolled under the seat. If you’re going for Partner of the Year award, vacuum up the carpets and wipe down the seats. We also love this handheld dustbuster that makes cleaning car messes a breeze.
