After an extra tough year, we’re feeling extra grateful for the moms in our lives. Whether she helped with late night tutoring, made us three meals a day (day…after day), or sent us virtual kisses through our screens, let’s use this Mother’s Day to celebrate and appreciate everything our moms and mother figures mean to us. 

Etsy is a one-stop shop for truly special gifts for all the moms in your life. From new moms to stepmoms, grandmas to pet moms, you are sure to find the perfect gift that says “I love you.” Read on for some of our favorites this year.

Make it personal

Nothing makes mom feel more seen and loved than a gift made just for her. With your very own personal touch—be that a name, initial or even a note in your own handwriting—these gifts are made even more special by you.

At home with Mom

According to a recent Etsy survey, many respondents are planning to celebrate Mother’s Day quietly, at-home this year*. And while shoppers are itching to get back to larger gatherings, the gift of time spent engaged in a fun and low-key activity you can do together (or virtually!) is one she’ll always remember.
