From foot massagers to fancy espresso machines, here are some of the best gifts for mom just in time for Mother's Day.
69 Best Gifts For Mom 2022

Bonjour, mon bébé. If you’re here, it must be time to get a gift for Mommie Dearest, and try to (somehow?) pay back the woman who literally grew us in her womb (so weird when you really think about it), made us infinity macaroni and cheese, and literally and figuratively wiped our tuchuses as we slowly, painfully blossomed into the funky little freakazoids we've come to be. We salute you, people who raise children. It sounds hard.

But those are our moms. We're thinking about your mom. Man, she is really something… a goddess. A wildcat! We sure like her. In fact, we spent a couple of days and long, candlelit nights—just like the video for Celine Dion's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now"—thinking all about her and what she might want to receive during this holiday season. Here are 69 lock 'n' load ideas for what to get your mommy. These are the true, actual, best gifts for moms, or for whoever is the literal, spiritual, or metaphorical mama in your life. Something for everyone. We promise.

1. Hors d'Oeuvres for your ears

All garlic shrimp everything—even jewelry.
