We’re all familiar with the fail-safe Mother’s Day gift routine: send flowers, write a heartfelt card, and if you live in the same city, take her out to brunch. But your mom is special, and your celebration of her designated Hallmark holiday (it's on Sunday, May 8th, by the way) should be too. That’s why this year we ditched the typical Mother’s Day gift suggestions—no bouquets of roses here—in favor of some more personal, practical, and quirky options.

While we did our best to refrain from lumping your mother into narrow categories like "the fit mom," or "the tech mom," you’ll still find items that appeal to all types. From delicate gold earrings with a subtle edginess to a fitness tracker that wins for function and fashion, there truly is something for everyone—and every budget. Organized by price and starting at $14, all of our picks come in under $200.

Happy gifting!
