Mother's Day gifts, although not mandatory, are an easy way to show your mom (or the mother of your children) that you care — and that you see her. Not sure if you've heard, but motherhood is hard. It's wonderful, rewarding and full of love and laughter, but it's full of work and sacrifices that often go unnoticed and there's often very little time for self-care. Mother's Day is the perfect time to gift something that facilitates much needed moments of "me time" or treat her to something she's had her eye on forever — but didn't buy because the kids needed new shoes.

As someone in their sophomore year of motherhood, I've curated a list of stores and Mother's Day gift ideas that I think any mom would enjoy on May 12 (mark your calendars!). If you're stumped for what to buy or where to shop — consider this my Mother's Day gift to you.

Lululemon is a great go-to for the mom who loves to workout, hit the yoga mat or simply wants to look stylish while staying comfortable. Gift cards are available online but here are my picks for gifts that are sure to be opened with joy:

If you're shopping for someone who loves to follow the latest trends, you'll definitely want to check out Abercrombie.

While gift cards are always a safe bet — here are my suggestions:

Makeup lovers level-up when they make the switch to Charlotte Tilbury products. These sets and skincare favourites are sure to please — just make sure you plan a date night out so she can show off her glam.

Anthropologie is perfect for the boho moms; the ones who aren't afraid of colour and love to have random tchotchkes as decor. E-gift cards are available online but these picks are a sure to be a a hit with mom:

I fully believe Shakespeare meant to write, "To sleep, perchance to dream — in cozy bedding!" What mom doesn't want to fall into luxe bedding at the end of a long day? Parachute's bedding plus a day to lounge in bed would be a generous and much-appreciated gift this Mother's Day!

Gift cards are great for mom to pick her own colours, but here are my no-fail picks to set the scene for a day of rest and relaxation:

You can't go wrong with a thoughtful piece of jewelry for Mother's Day. Mejuri is one of my favourite jewelry brands beloved by the likes of Taylor Swift. Ariana Grande and Mindy Kaling. Whether you're looking for a sentimental piece or something she can wear everyday, these Mejuri pieces are sure to be treasured forever:

A trip to Sephora is a pilgrimage for beauty lovers. If you're on the hunt for a gift for the mom who loves makeup and skincare, a Sephora gift card or these beauty gift sets are sure to add a little luxury to her daily routine:

Mother's Day can creep up on you if you're not prepared. These Amazon finds are great for the last-minute shopper in need of a gift that looks like it was ordered weeks ago.
