As Mother's Day 2024 approaches, many of us are on the hunt for the perfect way to commemorate the moms in our lives. Moms can be complicated (and don't get us started on Mother-In-Laws!), but shopping for them doesn't have be.
To make your search easier, we've curated a list of fantastic gifts that cater to different tastes and preferences, ensuring there's something special for every mom.
Go Botanicals is owned and run by a mom, so we happen to know a few things about what moms want. What we found from asking a ton of moms is that they just want to be loved and appreciated by their kids, but also they'd like a little something to help them relax, unwind, and take some time off. Even if it's only a few hours, they'll take it! But they prefer a long weekend of relaxing (just saying).
Mom anxiety and stress levels are now at an all-time high. It’s safe to say that moms may not be wanting flowers or other typical Mother’s Day gifts. But they may need relief from anxiety or just want a good night’s sleep.
When Is Mother's Day 2024
Mother's Day is Sunday, May 12, 2024. It is right around the corner, but there is still time to find the perfect gift for mom.

This personalized mother daughter long distance state mug can be personalized with your respective cities and a quote. Choose something sweet like "Best Friends" or something simple like "Mother & Daughter" or "Mother & Son."

It's a sweet Mother's Day gift for grandma, from all of us. Add everyone's name and the seller will wrap it around the planter in beautiful script.
Stressed Out Mom
We really hate to label her as the stressed out mom, but sometimes it is what it is. She's in a season of the never-ending to-do list. We know her, we are her and we have something she'll love. Go Botanicals Extra Strength Gummies are the answer for stress. Just ask the moms who love these.
"I can't even explain how much this has helped my daytime stress. I am so much more patient with my kids and am better able to stay present without letting the stress get to me."

Work From Home Mom
The best Mother's Day gift for the work from home mom? We did extensive research on this one because so many moms now have a home office. We researched most consistently searched items for this demographic and it was by far "office chair." Go figure!
We love this one because we found the best modern office chair that is comfortable, cute and reasonably priced. The Petal Desk Chair for a home office comes in six colors (if anyone asks, we like the rose pink) and two materials. It ships quick and the cover zips off so it is machine washable (every mom's dream). It has an adjustable height and is easy to assemble, according to all the rave reviews.
It's time to start getting ready for springtime entertaining! Especially after the groundhog saw his shadow. Every mom wants to freshen up the backyard living space before the first big barbecue. We found the best gift for the entertaining mom. This outdoor plastic straw rug is to die for. The modern outdoor rug comes in five sizes and is perfect for the backyard, RV, patio, deck, picnic or beach. She'll be ready to mix up her favorite sangria and have the whole family over as soon as the weather is nice!
World Traveler Mom
Does your mom love getting new stamps on her passport? She may not be available to babysit much, but she's having the time of her life.
Would it be helpful if she could speak a little of the local language before her next adventure? Babbel is the world leader in learning foreign languages, especially for travel.
This is so unique and fun, we just love it. Choose from a variety of languages like Spanish, French, Italian, and Dutch. Depending on how exotic her travel is, she can learn Indonesian, Norwegian, Polish, Turkish, or Russian.
Jewelry Lover Mom
For the mom who adores accessorizing with elegant pieces, Mother's Day offers the perfect opportunity to gift her something truly special. Let's give this jewelry a special twist. The Oura Ring, a sleek and sophisticated wearable tech accessory, is an ideal choice for the modern jewelry lover. With its stylish design and advanced health tracking features, including sleep analysis and activity monitoring, the Oura Ring seamlessly combines fashion with functionality.
Another fantastic option is the Kendra Scott Engravable Necklace, a timeless piece that can be personalized with initials, dates, or meaningful messages. Crafted with exquisite attention to detail, this necklace adds a personal touch to any outfit and serves as a cherished mothers day keepsake for years to come. We asked a lot of moms and their Kendra Scott necklaces were some of the favorite gifts they have received. We think this one is a guaranteed slam dunk.
The Gardener Mom
Does she love plants? If she spends as much time in her garden as she does anywhere else, she'd love something centered around her green thumb. Take her to your local botanical gardens for the day. There are some incredible events where you can plant together or learn about unique plants to your area. Some botanical gardens offer cooking classes where you use the herbs that grow there. We've seen some wonderfully relaxing yoga classes offered at botanical gardens. Have fun with it - she'll love spending time with you no matter what the activity is.
Mother's Day Gifts for Every Mom
There are some mom qualities that are repeatable and almost cliche. Moms love homemade gifts, they love time to themselves, they love anything related to health, wellness and beauty. Let's cover some (almost) universal perfect gifts for mom.
CBD Gifts For Mom
After years of waking up during the night worried about a hundred different things, moms often don't sleep well. Go Botanicals Sleep Gummies are a dreamy combination of CBD isolate (the purest form of CBD and free of anything that would get her even the least bit high) and melatonin. Moms just love these gummies. They help a lot of moms fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
Check out the reviews on these - a lot of them are directly from moms telling us how they are finally getting some good sleep.
Go Botanicals Balance Blend Gummies are so good for stress, our mom customers can't stop raving. Daytime stress that makes her pull her hair out? This is the gummy for that. Nighttime stress that keeps her up thinking about her long to-do list and a million things that will probably never happen? This is the gummy for that too. They are versatile and delicious, and your mom will thank you.
These two gummy options together make the perfect power couple, because she will always have a gummy for stress, day or night.
She will love the premium CBD and quality of Go Botanicals as well as supporting a company owned and run by a woman (and mom!).
CBD, while often praised for its potential health benefits, is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. Additionally, before initiating any supplement regimen, including CBD, it is essential for all individuals to consult with their healthcare provider. While CBD has shown promise in various studies, its effects on pregnant and nursing women have not been extensively researched, and therefore caution should be exercised. Consulting with a doctor ensures that any potential risks or interactions with existing medications can be discussed, leading to informed decisions regarding one's health and wellness.
