If you care more about finding a Valentine's Day gift for your mom that she'll absolutely love than you care about the holiday itself, I feel you. Every year, no matter what, my mom has always made sure that I have a present to open on Valentine's Day. Since I can't say the same thing about my exes, and since I'm currently single AF, I've decided to focus all of my Valentine's Day gift-giving energy this year on the one person who's always tried to make the holiday special for me — my mom.
If you're with me on this one, but you're struggling to find the perfect Valentine's Day gift for your mom, worry no more, my friend. I've got you covered. Whether you and your mom have such similar tastes that you're basically the same person, or you can agree on little more than the fact that you love each other, I'm sure you'll be able to find something she'll enjoy from the gift guide below. In fact, you may have a hard time not purchasing two of everything. As it turns out, I might actually be a gift-guide wizard.
Here are 15 amazing Valentine's Day gift ideas for your mom.
1. An Essential Oil Diffuser
If anyone could benefit from an all natural de-stressing machine, it's our moms. Pair this gift with a bottle of lavender essential oil, and you're officially the best kid in the world.
Essential Oil Diffuser, $25, Etsy
2. A Shower Wine Glass Holder (Or Four)
Because your mom shouldn't have to choose between enjoying her favorite cabernet and washing her hair.
3. A Pretty Necklace
Even if you and your mom don't see eye to eye on style, you can't go wrong with a necklace like this one. It's simple, ethereal, and feminine, without being too flashy.
Daisy Pendant, $36, Etsy
4. A Butterfly Wine Rack
This space-saving wine rack is perfect for all the wine-loving moms out there, and it's even better for us kids who are on a budget.
5. Burt's Bees Hand Repair
Because winter dryness is the worst, and because your mom deserves to be pampered.
6. A Single Brew Coffee Maker
Unless your mom drinks coffee like a Gilmore girl, this single brew coffee maker will be a super practical addition to her home. Plus, isn't it just the cutest?

7. A Cozy Blanket Scarf
I firmly believe that everyone needs a blarf, and that includes your mamma.
Aerie Bonfire Blanket Scarf, $10, Aerie
8. An Natural Scented Candle
I'm a big fan of using candles to brighten up winter gloom, and not only is this one super inexpensive, it's all natural ingredients ensure that your mom won't be breathing in tons of harsh chemicals.
9. A Sentimental Photo Locket
Fill this gem with photos of you and any siblings/children/pets you might have, and I'm pretty sure you'll make your mom cry. In a good way, of course.
Folding Locket Necklace, $19, Etsy
10. A Comfy Pair Of Moccasins
Moccasins are always a good choice in my opinion, because they manage to seamlessly pair style with comfort. Since the ones featured above have a hard sole, your mom can wear them indoors or outdoors — or both!
11. A Yummy Sprinkles Cupcake Mix
I normally wouldn't suggest gifting something that your mom will have to make herself, but baking can actually be really fun, and Sprinkles cupcakes are worth the effort. Yum!
12. An Adorable, Portable Record Player
This item's a little bit on the pricier side, but if you can swing it, I think you should. If your mom is anything like mine, she'll appreciate this adorable excuse to dust off some of her old vinyls.
Portable Record Player, $80, Urban Outfitters
13. A Portable White Noise Machine
I started falling asleep to white noise a couple of years ago, and it's kind of changed my life. If you want your mom to get the best night's sleep she's probably had in years, send her this little guy.
14. A Stylishly Practical Smartphone Case & Power Bank
You really can't have too many phone cases, and portable smartphone chargers are essentially magic. Trust me, your mom will definitely appreciate this gift the next time she's stuck on a long flight or in the middle of a cross-country road trip. Hell, it'll come in handy the next time her phone dies at the grocery store, too.
Apple iPhone 6 Dabney Lee Case & Power Bank, $25, Target
15. A DOK Portable Smartphone Speaker
This gift mixes practicality with entertainment in the best way. So unless your mom doesn't have a smartphone, or she's the one human out there who hates music, consider gifting her this portable smartphone speaker. And maybe get yourself one, too, because how awesome is this?
