Shopping for Mom? We asked readers what they had on their wish list for Mother’s Day this year, and these are the gifts that moms actually want! Besides a spa day and peace & quiet, of course. 😉

According to Moms, these are the best things to gift for Mother’s Day in 2024:

1. Overwhelmingly, moms want simple things that don’t cost a thing.

After hearing from hundreds of moms, not only do we know what moms want, we realize what many of them don’t want, and that is to plan their own Mother’s Day. Many moms wished for their partner or kids to take the initiative and plan the day for them. Below are a few of their top wishes that are free or nearly free:

  • Take care of the yardwork
  • Having all the older kids home for dinner
  • Help with unfinished home projects
  • Breakfast in bed
  • A genuine hug
  • Going to a park for a hike
  • Being present and putting phones away for a day
  • A heartfelt letter
  • A homemade card
  • Doing the dishes (& more than just on Mother’s Day
  • Mimosa brunch
  • A planned picnic
  • Time with grandkids

“Young kids can even wrap things you already have around the house! This was one of my favorite gifts when my kids were 6 and 3. My hubby was sick and the kids wrapped up things I had in the house! LOL! I still remember it 30 years later.” – Jane, Hip reader

Hip Tip: Download and print our FREE Coupon book for Mom which includes a ticket for a free breakfast in bed. 😍

2. Spend quality time together or grab an Adventure Challenge book for a year’s worth of ideas.

Not only does it add to the scrapbooking aesthetic, but the immediate snap & print of a Polaroid camera really preserves the memory so you won’t forget to print out phone pics later.

The second most wished-for gift by Moms this Mother’s Day was to simply spend time with their kids. Regardless of whether mom is in the thick of raising young kiddos or if she has a group of older kids, that’s truly what brings moms the most joy of all, and best of all your time doesn’t cost a thing!

To encourage some quality time together with kids at home, our team highly recommends the Adventure Challenge Family Edition book! It’s packed with 50+ unique experiences and will feel like such a meaningful gift that keeps giving far beyond Mother’s Day.

As another idea, some moms said they loved doing a fun class together like making pottery, a day at the lake, or painting.

3. Mom and Grandma want some family photos to cherish.

Moms love seeing their most precious people in photos so some fresh new prints were another top wish for Mother’s Day 2024 gift. Photo gifts are a great choice, and, lucky for you if you’re looking to stick to a tight budget, we frequently see photo gift deals!

You can often score a free Walgreens 8×10 photo, free CVS photo prints, or deals on Walgreens photo TilePix – just bookmark our posts for the next deals when they’re live.

Hip Tip: Many moms said a family photoshoot with a professional photographer would be on their dream wish list if they’re really looking to impress her this year. 📸

4. Moms want cozy clothes and dream of a cozy cashmere sweater.

Quince’s Women’s Cashmere Sweaters come in 22 colors and are made of 100% luxuriously soft Grade-A Mongolian Cashmere that is ethically and sustainably sourced. Cashmere is known for being long-lasting and one of the highest-quality clothing materials making it a luxurious gift. However, Quince offers their products at such a competitive price that this wardrobe piece won’t break the bank.

Even though cashmere sweaters are super lightweight, they are 3x as warm as heavier wool sweaters! So this is an especially great gift if mom is always cold. Get mom’s regular size if she’s more into fitted tops or size up for a piece that’s great for layering. Either way, they have a generous 365 return policy so you can’t go wrong! Quince also has more cashmere styles and other gift ideas, too.

5. New, nursing moms will love this cashmere shawl from Quince too.

This nursing shawl is softer than a baby’s supple skin and is the perfect gift idea for any new, nursing mom who wants to nurse discreetly. It features the same 100% luxuriously soft Grade-A Mongolian Cashmere and tiny holes for breathability.

Here’s what our Hip sidekick, Melinda, said about her shawl:

“I am breastfeeding my 4th child, so I’ve had lots of experience with nursing covers. After a 7 year gap in having kids, I was in the market for a new one. I wanted something discreet, cute, and trendy but also functional. I’ve owned other nursing covers that didn’t feel breathable or soft enough.

I came across this Quince Nursing Shawl and knew it would check off all the boxes and I’m loving this so far and how soft it is! My favorite feature is the tiny holes that allow my baby to get air and breathe while nursing. I can easily look down and see her while being fully covered. This nursing shawl is perfect to keep you confident while nursing in public. This would make a great baby shower gift idea for an expecting mom too!” 

6. Moms also said they love other cozy clothes like robes, sweatshirts, and slippers.

Our Hip moms weren’t shy about saying how cozy they like to be and many of them were honest that cozy clothes like robes, pajamas, and slippers aren’t an item they treat themselves to very often. So, if you’re looking to make mom feel extra cozy and warm this Mother’s Day 2024, consider some comfy clothes she’ll love! Above is one of Collin’s most popular cozy outfits and you can shop the whole look on LTK. Her outfit features slippers starting under $10, an oversized sweatshirt for $14.99, and seamless leggings for just $25.99!

This digital picture frame can store more than 50,000 pictures and is the perfect idea for any mom who can never get enough photos. You can upload photos directly from your phone and even invite family and friends to share photos or videos from anywhere through the free “Uhale” app. So, it’s an ideal gift idea for long-distance families, too! The frame can be placed on a desktop or hung on the wall, and the pictures can be displayed horizontally and vertically.

“Mom and Grandma here. A digital picture frame that you can email pictures to is something every mom and grandma should have. It’s easy to set up and I love looking at them!” – Susan (Collin’s mom!)

Or consider a custom photo gift that will make mom feel all warm and cozy.

These warm and cozy photo blankets are made with top-of-the-line full-color printing and would be such a unique photo gift! Our Hip sidekick, Chelsey, also loves the fact you can add 4 photos to one blanket at no extra cost! And at UNDER $10 each, you’ll be able to grab multiples for mom, bonus mom, grandmothers, mother-in-laws, and all the other mom figures in your life.

8. Moms everywhere want a spa day (and you can usually save over 50% on Groupon).

There’s NO denying that moms are some of the hardest-working people who walk this planet, so it goes without saying a spa day will almost always be appreciated by any mother. If gifting an experience that will pamper Mom is on your radar this year, don’t forget to check Groupon! You’ll likely save over 50% and you can almost always count on a plethora of unique and giftable spa experiences such as aromatherapy and hot stones massage or even more exotic services like whole body cryotherapy session or a floatation tank session.

If a trip to the spa isn’t in your budget, consider an at-home spa day! More budget-friendly and great memories with mom!

9. Moms also said they’d love to get their nails done or receive a gift card to get their hair done.

Moms also expressed how much they’d love a day of pampering to get their nails or hair done. One Hip reader said how much she’s enjoyed the collapsible foot massager that she received last year. In fact, it’s been her favorite Mother’s Day gift yet so we highly recommend it for a momma who doesn’t love the idea of leaving home for some relaxation.

“I got a collapsible foot bath from my husband and it is amazing! We have limited storage space, and this collapses down and slides under our bed when I’m done with it. It’s heated, too, with massagers. 10/10 recommend for moms who want a little pampering without leaving the house.” – Leidra

Want to do at-home manis over a cup of tea with your mom? We’ve tested a lot of nail products for home manicures – check them out on Instagram!

Aside from the traditional breakfast in bed that will make any mom feel well taken care of, many moms also expressed how much they’d love a meal delivery service. More than anything moms love the idea of not having to think about groceries or what they need to make for every meal.

Lucky for you we’ve vetted the best meal kit delivery service options on the market so you know which is the best to buy for the mom in your life. Food may be the way to her heart, but she’ll really love this foodie gift that will keep on giving. Want to really make her happy? Invite yourself to dinner and do the cooking for her, too – she’ll get a break, plus enjoy time with you. ❤️

12. A Walmart+ membership will save Mom time (and her sanity) when it comes to grocery shopping year-round.

Imagine treating mom to a membership that would save her from ever stepping foot inside the store at all for the next year! 😱 Men…this could potentially save you money if she’s avoiding in-store shopping altogether. 😆 Walmart+ has so many benefits that make it worth the annual fee, including gas savings, free shipping on most orders, in-store scan & go to get her out of the store faster, and at-home returns! In fact, our Hip CEO, Collin, said she prefers Walmart+ over Amazon Prime!

13. Moms love getting a bouquet of traditional flowers and you can score 25% off at Teleflora.

14. Moms also cherish houseplants, hanging baskets, and even trees they can plant in their yard and enjoy year after year.

From the moms who shared their wish lists, flowering plants like a rose bush, hanging baskets, a house plant, or fresh garden flowers were the top suggestions. You can browse the top places we recommend and buy plants online for mom making it a cinch to shop or read about the best place to buy houseplants online according to our Hip CEO, Collin.

One Hip reader even said her kids chipped in for a cherry blossom tree one year and she loves admiring it every spring. 😍

15. Moms also want a clean house they don’t have to work hard for themselves.

Many of our Hip moms expressed how much they’d love a clean home that they didn’t have to clean themselves! This gift idea could potentially be FREE if the kids chip in to make your home tidy. Even better, you could invest in a trustworthy cleaning service that will really take a load off mom’s house chores.

On the flip side, many also said how much they’d love a Tineco wet-dry vacuum because it effortlessly vacuums and mops your floors simultaneously. This spendier gift idea is ideal for splitting with siblings, whether you’re opting for a full home cleaning service or a Tineco that will leave her speechless.

Hip Tip: Moms also said detailing her car would be the ultimate gift that could essentially be free, too!

16. Gift Mom a new hobby she can start and feel good about.

With the rising trend of making sourdough bread at home, a sourdough starter kit was a surprising gift Moms are asking for. Not only will this gift idea give back to the family, but it’s something mom will enjoy learning too.

Our highly rated pick on Amazon contains all the tools mom will need to bake delicious oven-fresh sourdough bread. It’s also likely to create lasting memories and new family traditions. And there’s warm homemade bread involved. 😏 What’s not to love?!

17. Treat mom to tickets to see a new movie and score a deal on a membership so she can keep going back.

Moms who love going to the movies said they’d love to be treated to a show with their partner and/or kiddos. Luckily we post many movie deals so you could potentially score some free or discounted movie tickets and amazing deals where mom could see up to 3 movies per week with an AMC Stubs Membership. Be sure to browse all the hot movie deals she can use from the comfort of her home.

“This year, I’m really hoping my son takes me to the movies. The new Planet of the Apes is coming out on Mother’s Day weekend. It’s a movie series we watched throughout his childhood together. Good memories and we both have a love for movies.” – Christie, Hip reader

Hip Tip: The Cinemark Movie Club is slightly more per month but Mom can score free movie tickets, 20% OFF concessions, and more!

18. Sports moms told us the Mambe waterproof blanket is worth the splurge.
