She may be the sentimental kind — or she may dislike anything that’s a potential dust collector on the shelf. So follow her lead in choosing a Mother’s Day gift that feels like her.

Secrets to Buying Cool Gifts for Mom

Whether it's Mother's Day or any day, Mom deserves a gift that not only broadcasts your love for her, but also communicates that she's one in a million - not just a mother but also a unique individual. Here are some ways to show gratitude to the woman who's been your number one supporter since day one - literally.

1

Give Her the Day Off

Ask any Mom what she wants most, and this is what she's mostly likely to request. Your wish is her command! Hire her a cleaning service - and possibly a nanny. Do her laundry and wash her car. Arrange for Mom just sit back and do whatever she chooses, no obligations necessary.

2

Wine Her and Dine Her

You almost can't miss with fine wines - along with wine glasses, aerators, and various vino gadgets. Then cook her a fancy meal, or present her with a certificate to her favorite restaurant. A bonus? Sign her up or a monthly meal delivery service; It's the Mother's Day gift that keeps on giving.

3

Keep Her Healthy

She dedicates her life to keeping her children healthy, so return the favor with gifts that have healing effects - things like tea, supplements, healthy foods, spa services, sleep enhancers, and even calming music.

4

Send Her on a Journey

For most Moms, free time is at a premium. Rarely does Mom get a chance to get away. That's why a destination-based gift - whether it's for a day, a weekend, or longer - is one of the coolest gifts for Mom possible.

5

Make Her Laugh

Laughter has myriad health benefits and is known to keep us looking and feeling youthful. Whatever it is that will tickle Mom's ribs - whether it's a funny portrait or a home accessory with a humorous quote - is thoughtful beyond words.

6

Indulge Her Favorite Hobby

If she loves to draw, gift her with a moleskin pad and charcoal pencils. If she loves to cook, buy her top-notch cookware or an amazing set of knives. If she loves to garden, refresh her garden basket and throw in a wide-brim hat to protect her from the sun. Whatever Mom loves to do, support her beloved pastime just like she's always supported yours.
