Best high-end gifts for moms

Mallory Pitts

When picking out a gift for the mom who seems to have everything, try finding something personalized-- that way, it's unique to her and that much more special.

Luxury gifts moms will love

Finding the perfect gift for anyone can be hard, but finding the perfect gift for a mom can be nearly impossible. It’s hard to express how much a mother figure means to you, and it can feel difficult to pick out a gift that measures up. Because mothers are incredibly hardworking and deserving of a token of gratitude, it’s nice to show appreciation and make them feel special. There are plenty of high-end gifts for moms with varying interests and tastes.

Best high-end gifts for moms 

UGG Women’s Scuffette II Slippers: available at Macy’s

You can’t go wrong with a nice pair of slippers for Mom. They’re comfortable, cozy and indulgent. A high-end slipper like this one makes a good gift because while they’re under $100, they’re not something most people want to splurge on for themselves. These are nice and warm because of their sheepskin lining and suede upper. Another great thing about these slippers in particular is the rubber sole. If she needs to run outside wearing the slippers, they’re durable enough to withstand it.

Erin Harris Custom Pet Portrait Pendant: available at Uncommon Goods

This necklace is a thoughtful gift for any dog and cat moms. The process is fairly simple — the purchaser merely has to send a picture of the pet, and the artist will create a rubber stamp in order to imprint the pet portrait onto the pendant. The artist, Erin Harris, can engrave the pet’s name or another meaningful word, phrase or date onto the back of the necklace. The finished necklace also comes with the rubber stamp which can be reused for stationery or other paper goods.

Cuisinart Air Fryer & Convection Toaster Oven: available at Amazon

Air fryers have been all the rage lately, and they make a wonderful gift for any moms who like to cook or are looking to begin a healthier lifestyle. Air frying is a healthier, easier alternative to making your favorite fried dishes. This Cuisinart model comes highly rated on Amazon and makes for a nice gift that’s not too expensive. This air fryer is available in a few color finishes to fit the style of the kitchen it will live in, and the dual toaster oven functionality allows for counter space optimization.

Slip Pure Silk Queen Pillowcase: available at Ulta

A silk pillowcase like this one makes a wonderful gift for moms, because it’s one of those luxuries that most don’t want to buy for themselves but everyone can enjoy. While the sensation of sleeping on a silk pillowcase is preferable to your average pillowcase for most, the silk has added benefits for skin and hair, like less creasing in the hair and fewer breakouts on the skin. While Slip is a popular brand, silk pillowcases come in many different price ranges and colors.

Personalized Family Recipe Board: available at Uncommon Goods

While something like this is obviously a great gift for moms who enjoy cooking or have a special family recipe, personalized gifts are also a good idea for the mom who seems to have everything. This board comes in cherry or maple wood and comes engraved with the exact handwriting from the original recipe card (or handwritten-style script font if you don’t have a handwritten recipe card). 

Tory Burch Walker Satchel: available at Tory Burch

For the chic working mom, a leather tote never misses. The Walker is a classic style that transcends seasons or trends and fits a laptop up to 13 inches. A tote is also a good idea for a new mom or mom-to-be as a stylish alternative to a diaper bag. The Walker comes in a few different leather colors to fit the style of mom you’re gifting and also matches with an accompanying card case from the designer if you want to add a little something extra onto the gift.

KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer: available at Macy’s and Amazon

If the mom on the receiving end of this gift loves to cook or bake, a good stand mixer is a kitchen staple she’ll love. This gift is on the pricier end of the spectrum, but a high-quality appliance like this one lasts for years to come and gets utilized quite often by those who enjoy baking. KitchenAid also sells various attachments like a veggie sheet cutter, slicer or pasta maker, so any amateur chef will get a good bit of use out of this appliance. 

Lacoste Home Pique Bath Robe: available at Macy’s and Amazon

A nice robe makes a wonderful gift for moms, especially those who are new homeowners, new moms or just love lounging around the house. This one from Lacoste is 100% cotton terry and comes complete with a belt from the same material. If you want to go the extra mile, take the robe to get monogrammed. It really sets the gift apart and gives it that extra personal, thoughtful touch. 

Megan Taber New Mom and Babe Gift Set: available at Uncommon Goods

This one is for all the new moms out there. This gift set from Uncommon Goods comes complete with spa-like goodies for Mom, like a belly butter and a balm for reducing nursing-induced soreness. This gift box also offers a couple of things for the baby, like Calming Baby Balm and a Lavender Lullaby Wash. These skincare products are natural so there’s no need to second-guess the ingredients. 

eberjey Gisele PJs: available at Revolve and Amazon

These pajamas, while pricey, have a cult following, which makes them a great candidate for a gift. The Gisele is a traditional short-sleeve button-down and short set made of buttery-soft jersey fabric with piping along the hems and lapels. A matching pajama set feels like such a luxury, and it’s one of those things you can never have too many of. This style comes in a variety of colors, and the brand also makes a wide range of styles like joggers for the more sporty moms or a teddy style for a mom who prefers a feminine look.
