Ahead, we’ve put together more than 30 gift ideas that will brighten mom’s day whether she’s near or far. From the mom looking to get zen to the mom who loves to cook (or eat!) to all the bookworm mamas, we’ve found a little something for everyone, with some special NYC-themed treats to boot.

For the mom looking to get zen
For the bookworm mom
|This is the latest novel from Brooklyn’s own Emma Straub. According to the description, this one is about “deeply satisfying story about adult siblings, aging parents, high school boyfriends, middle school mean girls, the lifelong effects of birth order, and all the other things that follow us into adulthood, whether we like them to or not.” If you want to gift mom Straub’s other wonderful titles, consider adding Modern Lovers and The Vacationers.
|Is mom a Reese Witherspoon fan? Then why not get her one of the most popular picks from her Hello Sunshine book club? According to Reese, “This memoir is so packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today, what it means to be “good,” and what woman will do in order to be loved.”|
|Bess Kalb is an Emmy-nominated writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live and a writer for The New Yorker’s “Daily Shouts.” She also saved every voicemail her grandmother ever left her, and in her debut memoir, she writes from her grandmother’s voice to share her family’s lore and secrets that’ll make you laugh and cry.|
|Mom is probably reading more than usual these days (aren’t we all?), so she’ll surely get a lot of use out of a Kindle. The newest version is waterproof (start daydreaming about that beach vacation!) and has twice the storage.|
For the mom who loves to cook (or eat!)
|Cookbook author and food columnist Alison Roman may be popular with the younger generation, but her cookbooks are chock full of pantry staple recipes that mom will appreciate that also have a fresh, modern twist so she’ll be excited to show them off (and dare we say Instagram them?).|
|If she’s already got a collection of cookbooks, mom can probably use a cookbook stand, and this one is perfect for tablets or books (it even has page clips).|
|Has mom been dreaming of a Kitchenaid stand mixer forever? Now might be the time to treat her (go in on with your siblings!) considering she’s got extra time for baking.|
|And with all that baking, she’ll need somewhere pretty to display her treats, right?|
|These days, most of us have gotten into the habit of buying groceries ahead and cooking in batches. These pretty stoneware containers are a great way to store the leftovers. Plus, they’re microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe.|
|If you want to send mom a sweet treat with no work required on her end, plenty of your favorite NYC shops are doing national delivery. How about pretty, pastel macarons from Ladurée? Or springy cupcakes from Magnolia (pro tip, their banana pudding is also a sleeper hit)? And if mom’s really got a sweet tooth, Milk Bar is also delivering, and Levain will ship their massive cookies.|
For the mom who wants to unwind with an adult beverage
For the mom who’s a plant lover
|The window for peonies is a short one, but it just so happens to fall around Mother’s Day.|
|You could basically buy mom anything from The Sill if you want to hit a Mother’s Day home run, but this mail-order plant company has just launched a new collection of dried and preserved bouquet options. Not only do they add sculptural form and natural, tranquil hues to any space, but they are a sustainable, zero-maintenance way to enjoy nature all year long.|
|Female-founded company The Crafter’s Box combines artist-led workshops with curated kits and step-by-step video instruction. You can give mom the opportunity to learn Shibori dyeing, soap making, Tunisian crochet, landscape painting, and more, but we love this Pressed Florals Workshop.|
|These succulent pots are both adorable and modern, traits that are probably shared with mom.|
|And of course, she will need some equally adorable succulents to put in the planters.|
|Just because you’re digging in the dirt, doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style! These gardening gloves are cute and cheerful.|
