It might be a bit of cliché, but moms love Target. Whether they’re perusing workout gear, tank tops, slinky blankets, yummy-smelling candles or sheet sets or even just doing some boring grocery shopping, moms are in heaven when they’re strolling down the aisles or scrolling through the site.
Which is exactly why we decided to find our favorite Mother’s Day gifts Target has to offer. Regardless of who the “mom” in your life is — your wife, your mom, your grandma, your mother-in-law or a longtime mother figure — we’ve found the present for her. Looking for more ideas?

Opalhouse Stoneware Cup of Happy Cup and Saucer Set ($10; target.com)
Every mama deserves to start her day with a big ol’ cup of happy, and this pretty set will guarantee she does just that. We love the rimmed saucer design and the cute curved handle, but we’re really smitten with the sweet artwork detailing. More to know: It’s both microwave- and dishwasher-safe.
Opalhouse Stoneware Family Planter (starting at $8; target.com)
Silly yet also totally striking, this stoneware planter is going to make an impact wherever it lands in her home. Available in three sizes and three stain colors, the whimsical piece will surely delight her this Mother’s Day — we suggest adding a plant in there to round out the gift!

Send her a message with a chic candle this Mother’s Day — one that is so pretty she’ll be happy to keep it out all year long. Made with palm oil and paraffin wax, the three-wick candle has a 30-hour burn time. If you’re looking for similar but less specific wording, check out the “Best Mom Ever” or “Love You Mom” options.
Smith & Hawken Floral Garden Tool Set ($15; target.com)
If the mama in your life is happiest in her garden, then you need to upgrade her tools. We love the pretty print on this set, which includes a small cultivator, a gardening trowel and a pair of pruning shears. Round out the look with a matching kneeler and rubber boots and she’ll be the most stylish gardener on the block.
SodaStream Fizzi Sparkling Water Maker ($89.99; target.com)
For the mama who just might love her LaCroix more than you, meet the SodaStream. With more than 1,600 positive reviews, this sparkling water maker is going to have her cheering now that she can make her favorite beverage right in her very own kitchen. Available in four chic colorways — we simply love the white-and-gold combination — the apparatus will look gorgeous on her countertop too.
Keurig K-Mini Basic Jonathan Adler Limited-Edition Pod Coffee Maker ($69.99, originally $99.99; target.com)
Liven up her home essentials with this incredibly cool Keurig machine from iconic interior designer Jonathan Adler.

With more than 2,000 positive reviews, this brewer is a Target fave.
BlanQuil Original Weighted Blanket ($99.99; target.com)
Give her the best night’s sleep ever with this weighted blanket that feels like a giant, warm hug. Created to dampen down tossing and turning and ease nighttime anxiety, the sheer weight of the Blanquil (which comes with a removable cover, by the way) will have her relaxed in no time.
Hearth & Hand With Magnolia ‘I Love You’ Ceramic Trinket Dish Pink ($4.99; target.com)
If she’s like us, she’s got a whole lotta trinkets — from rings and safety pins to AirPods and her kiddos’ missing Legos — that need safekeeping, and this sweet dish from Joanna Gaines’ Target line will do the trick. Simply place it on her nightstand, and voilà! It will become the most useful gift ever.
Hearth & Hand With Magnolia Bold Stripes Cooking Apron (starting at $8.99; target.com)
What’s better than a brand-new apron? A brand-new apron with matching kid-size versions, of course. We love this cute set from Hearth & Hand for its crisp stripes and its adjustable neck and waist straps, making each one customizable to her and her little ones.

Threshold Cloche Glass Jar Cashmere Vanilla Candle ($10; target.com)
This candle had us at the words “cloche,” “cashmere” and “vanilla” — but when we learned that it also supposedly smells exactly like Harry Styles, well, we were sold. Your mama will be too…even if she’s never heard of One Direction. The candle’s delicious scent and luxe glass jar make it well worth its $10 price tag.
Fashion and beauty must-haves

Plum Beauty Rose Quartz Sculpting Gua Sha Stone ($9.99; target.com)
If the mama on your list is a major beauty fiend, she’s going to be psyched to finally try gua sha. Said to tighten, tone and de-puff while also minimizing pores, fine lines and wrinkles and increasing product absorption, the stone should be applied to her face daily (after serums and moisturizers!), gliding it along the jaw and beyond in an upward sweeping motion.
