No two moms are the same, so you shouldn’t have to shop for them like they are. These 10 gifts are catered to match the unique mama’s in your life this Mother’s Day. Happy shopping!

While we believe all moms are super heroes, we all know those moms who we’d give a few extra pats on the backs to for all they manage to fit into a 24-hour period. Give them the gift they really need, an assistant – you know without forking out thousands of dollars. Google Home is a voice activated speaker that can control certain functions in the home and even answer questions for the user. It can keep track of someone’s schedule or turn off the lights if someone is already cozy in bed. Magical, right? Google Home, $114

Tribe Moms (moms with lots of kids)

Okay, this might actually be every mom, (who doesn’t love food?!) but we’re talking about the ladies who are either whipping up something new and daring in their kitchen or know about the hottest new restaurants in town. Mole from scratch can have any mom in the kitchen longer than they’d like to be, still, it’s too delicious not to be enjoyed ALL. THE. TIME. Thankfully the team at Guelaguetza has already done the hard work for us. All you have to do is add a few ingredients to their pre-packaged mole and in just ten minutes, you’ll have perfection. Feliz de Mole Bundle, $32

Empty Nest Moms

If you know a mom whose kids have recently flown the nest, be patient and gentle with them. Empty nest syndrome is a real thing and many moms can experience depression the first time their kids leave home. The best gift you can get them will be to get them out the house where they can meet other people. Consider getting them a pass to three ceramics classes. Hopefully they pick up the hobby, make a couple friends, and you’ll get some cute mugs out of it. Ceramics classes, prices and locations vary.

Single Moms

Single moms are serious MVPs, often taking care of kids, home, and work by their lonesome. Give them the gift they really need, a day to themselves. Offer to babysit and get them a gift certificate for a one-hour massage. They will be eternally grateful. Massage Envy, $75

Mother-in-Law
