Finding the perfect Mother's Day gift to thank your mom for a lifetime of much-needed hugs, answering all your panicked wedding-related phone calls, and dealing with your moody teenage phase (yikes) is clearly much easier said than done. Your saint of a mother obviously deserves the world on a heart-shaped silver platter (and more). While that unfortunately is a bit too expansive to deliver in a pretty box sealed with a bow, we went for a slightly smaller scale and rounded up our favorite Mother's Day gifts to celebrate your first and most loyal best friend.
From earrings that even the pickiest fashionista will love to sentimental keepsakes that mom will keep forever, these Mother's Day gifts perfectly emulate how much you love your mom and that you're still ever-appreciative that she changed your diapers back in the day. Don't listen to your mom when she protests that she "doesn't need anything this year" because she'll love any of these Mother's Day gifts almost as much as she loves her soon-to-be favorite daughter (if you haven't already secured this position).
