Mother's Day is that time in every year when we get to officially celebrate the love we have for the most special lady in our lives. We all want our Mother's Day gift to be the one that makes her eyes light up with pleasure because she sees that you 'get' her.
You want your gift to make Mom smile and let her know that she is loved, even if you don't tell her that as often as you should.

Best Mother's Day gift ideas for the gardener
Who says garden tools can't be pretty? I've rounded up a few of my favorite gardening essentials that are practical AND pretty.
1. Mother's Day garden tool set gift
Three of the most used tools in my gardening collection are the pruner, cultivator, and trowel. I can't do without any of these when working in the garden.
This pretty blue and white, handcrafted toolset has a rust-proof coating which means that Mom will enjoy using them for many years to come.
2. Pretty floral kneeling pad
I was so happy to see a pretty kneeling pad in the same blue and white pattern as the toolset above. My kneeling cushion has saved my clothes from dirt and grass stains and makes garden work at ground level much more comfortable. I also use my kneeling pad indoors when doing chores where I have to kneel down. (Like when I'm cleaning the windows over the countertops in the kitchen!) This cushion is a practical addition to the gardener's toolset and is something every gardener should have.
3. Gardening boots for Mother's Day
I have boots like these standing by the door at all times. The rubber boots are easy to slip on, so they are my go-to boots for quick gardening jobs or taking anything out to the garage. Short boots are great for gardening in hot weather when long boots would be too hot to wear.
4. Canvas garden tote bag
If your Mom loves gardening and likes things nicely organized, this canvas gardening tote bag will be right up her alley. It's great for carrying everything you need from place to place as you work around the garden.
Best Mother's Day gift ideas for the sewer
Sewers will appreciate this beautiful stone-washed apron. Moms can use it to protect their clothes in the garden or when cooking or crafting. The apron comes in fifteen colors, so there is bound to be one to suit every Mom's taste.
6. Mini Iron
A mini travel steam iron is also the perfect gift for sewers. A mini iron is just what you need for pressing all of the folds and seams in between sewing. If I opened up a present containing one of these mini irons on Mothering Sunday, I would be a very happy bunny!
7. Fabric cutting set gift for Mom
Something that makes a sewer's life easier, is a good quality cutting mat. This cutting mat from Fiskars can also be used for crafting. It comes with a rotary cutter and a ruler for precise measuring and cutting. All three items in this cutting set have holes for hanging them on the wall to save space in the craft or sewing room.
8. The prettiest scissor set
Oh my goodness, have you ever seen such a pretty scissor set? I love the blue and white colors and pretty floral design. This cutting set is a four-piece accessory that is great for all sewing projects.

9. Short pajama set
This pajama set in pink and cream pastel colors is the prettiest I've seen in a long time! Not only are these pajamas stylish and chic but they would make the perfect sleepwear for hot summer nights. I think these pajamas are going to be bestsellers, so you'd better be quick if you want to get them for Mother's Day.
No one likes to have cold feet so what better way to keep them snuggly than with these pretty slip-on slippers? They have a thick sole and are padded so they will be great for wearing on hard stone floors too. These slippers would look lovely with the pretty abstract pajama set shown above don't you think?
If your Mom is all about pretty things (as I am), she will love this stylish hairdryer from Revlon. This hairdryer looks good and uses infrared heat technology to deliver maximum shine. Who could resist that?
12. Make-up bag
I found this beautiful make-up bag on Etsy. The seller has so many beautiful designs in her shop, it's hard to pick a favorite, to be honest! In the end, I chose this pretty cream and pink make-up bag because it complements the pajamas and slippers in the gift ideas above.
Best phone and AirPod gifts for Moms
13. Pretty phone cases
These pretty phone cases are a fun gift for any mother. Why have blah when you could have ahhh!!!
14. AirPod cases
Another pretty and useful mother's Day gift is this AirPod case. You can get them to match the phone cases above. There are lots of patterns and colors to choose from too.
Best Mother's Day gift ideas for the outdoorsy Mom
OK, I chose these because I like to hike and these are some of the things I have found to be the most useful.
15. Hiking Poles
I can't do without my hiking sticks when I'm in the mountains. The trick is to find some that are lightweight and sturdy but are also collapsible so you can attach them to your rucksack when you are not using them. Of course, it helps if the poles are as stylish as these adjustable hiking poles are!
16. Water bottle
Another indispensable item for hikers is a water bottle. I have this one in pink and it has held up well so far with no leeks in my rucksack. This bottle can hold water, tea, coffee, carbonated drinks, wine, and even soup so it's great all year round. It's great for taking to the gym and fits perfectly in the bottle holder in my car as well.
If you get one of these for your Mom, I can tell you that she will definitely get a lot of use out of it.
17. Lightweight trekking towel
A lightweight trekking towel is another one of my essential items for hiking but it's also great for taking swimming or to the gym. It's super-absorbent, quick to dry, and takes up very little space in a rucksack or gym bag.
A little towel like this one has been a life-saver for me on many occasions.
Best Mother's Day gift ideas for the fashionista
I chose this cute blue and white Mother's Day outfit because it looks fresh and summery! I also think that most people like blue and white for summer, don't they? Plus, I happen to own an outfit almost identical to this one. I love it so much that I thought, maybe your Mom will love it too.
18. Blue and white square neck top
I love the floral pattern on this summery square neck smocked top, it's so cool and airy!
19. White trousers
You can't go wrong with white trousers for summer, I would know! I have many pairs of white trousers from jeans to linen to cotton and from short to midi to long!
If white trousers are your Mom's 'go-to' summer casual daywear, then she will love these.
20. Slip-on sandals
I have a pair of sandals similar to these ones with a cushioned sole. They are so comfortable and quick to slip on that I think any Mom would love them. Plus, of course, they are super stylish and affordable.
21. Affordable aviator sunglasses for Moms
I love aviator-style sunglasses but I'm always losing mine. That's why I don't like to pay a lot of money for sunglasses.
These gold-toned aviator sunglasses are made from 100% recycled materials and will look great with so many outfits. They are actually on sale right now too!
22. Straw tote bag
This roomy straw tote bag is perfect for shopping or taking to the beach. I have a similar bag that is always with me when I'm doing my seasonal shopping hauls, it holds so much stuff! I'm sure your Mom would love to get one of these for Mother's Day!
I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on the best Mother's Day gift ideas in 2022. It's as I said, they're simple but good!
Oh, by the way, if your Mom loves to cook, take a look at this post about embossed rolling pins. There are lots of lovely patterns for using throughout the year, not just for Christmas.
DIY Mother's Day gifts
If you are looking for DIY gifts for Mother's Day, why not make her some gorgeous wood-burned spoons? There are even some ideas for gifting them in this post.
These DIY candles would make lovely DIY Mother's Day gifts too.
Does your Mom like to entertain? Perhaps you could make her some of these pretty napkin rings for her summer table?
Most of all, I hope you are able to spend TIME with your loved ones this Mother's Day!
Happy Mother's Day and happy gifting!
