Celebrate moms and grandmas this Mother’s Day by treating them to something special from their wish lists. Whether they’re after the latest gadget or are in the mood to be pampered at home, finding just the right splurge is really the least we can do to thank the moms in our lives.

Moms on a strict budget may not splurge for high-end skin care products, so gifting them is the perfect way to spoil a mom who loves a home spa day.

Speaking of a spa day, if mom hasn’t seen a robe upgrade since the new millennium, she’s long overdue for one. Choose from an array of budgets or styles, or go with the classic hotel comfort of a Marriott robe.

If moms favorite days are spent in the kitchen baking, gifting her a stylish apron gives her a chance to think of you every time she makes a batch of goodies. Whether she enjoys pretty patterns or a muted tone, there are dozens of cute apron styles out there to protect against spills and stains in the kitchen.

If everyone is always welcome to stop by, make sure the light is on and the welcome mat is out. This custom mat features a family name, but shops like ProperLetter also offer city pride, seasonal quotes, and more options in their shops, so you can perfectly tailor that custom gift to mom’s preferences.

For a mom with a knack for collecting the most interesting curiosities and tchotchkes, this little origami deer under glass is a fascinating conversation starter. Perfect for mantle display, it’s available in a range of color choices and even can be made with printed paper- perfect for preserving wedding vows or love letters for years to come.

Of course you could buy her a bouquet of flowers, but those will only stay pretty on the counter for a short while; picking out a living plant can provide her with beautiful flowers for years. For a practical mom, skip the flowers and, depending on her local climate, choose a fruit tree instead. A long-lived gift like a lemon, apple, or peach tree will provide mom the chance to pick  fresh, in-season fruit year after year.

A latte a day keeps mom from falling asleep at the wheel– or at least that’s how the saying should go. If mom adores her local coffee place but also needs the ability to make her morning cuppa at home, this espresso machine with milk frothing wand is like having a home barista.
