Moms should get nothing but the best gifts during birthdays and holidays, which means thoughtful, interesting items that show her the gratitude she deserves. But sometimes the pressure to get your mom a meaningful, useful gift can result in worrying and procrastination (which never leads to smart gift-buying). Every mom is unique, so how does one find the best gift for mom when there are so many options out there?

We hear your worries loud and clear, so we decided to do some digging. In scouring the internet, we found 12 great gifts for moms of all kinds. If you mom is a writer, we found an incredible journal she’ll love. If she prefers tea over coffee, she’ll swoon over our stainless steel tea infusers. Regardless of what your mom loves, you’ll find we have a great gift to help make the search for a gift a little less daunting.

1. Senbowe Stainless Steel Tea Infusers

BEST FOR TEA DRINKERS

These elegant stainless steel tea infusers are a thoughtful gift for any tea-loving mom. These charm-like infusers are easy to fill with any loose leaf tea, and the attached chain makes steeping hassle-free. These are an eco-friendly alternative to disposable tea bags, and she’ll find her tea is just as flavorful. Plus, a s they’re stainless steel, they’re easy to clean and won’t retain any odor or flavor from past usage.

If tea isn’t really her thing, try this 10-piece mixology kit.  Each kit comes with a cocktail shaker, strainer, mixing spoon, double lever corkscrew, ice tongs, and more to ensure your mom has all the tools she needs to whip up her favorite cocktail.

3. Sorbus Bamboo Countertop Wine Rack

BEST FOR WINE LOVERS

If your mom is a wine connoisseur, entertainer, chef, or any combination of the three, she’ll love this bamboo countertop wine rack. We think a countertop wine rack makes a better gift than a real wine rack, as it’s less of a commitment and fits in almost anybody’s kitchen. This rack holds up to 6 bottles of wine and doubles as a nice display as well as a convenient way to keep her favorite bottles close by and organized.

4. Prepara iPrep Device Stand

BEST FOR TECH FORWARD MOMS

Many home chefs still use physical cookbooks and forgo the usefulness of online recipes because it’s difficult to use a device while cooking. iPrep fixes this problem with an adjustable stand, integrated stylus and a non-slip rubber grip. The stand works with tablets of all kinds (Kindle, iPad, Samsung etc). If your mom’s a cook, she’ll absolutely love it.

5. Modern Innovations Marble Wine Cooler

BEST BUDGET-FRIENDLY GIFT

A stylish marble wine cooler like this can be used as a rosé-chiller in the summer and a flower or utensil holder in the winter. To use, store the cooler in the fridge for a few hours prior to entertaining. Then, when you’re ready to open and chill your wine, simply take the cooler out, set it on the table and let the marble’s natural temperature retaining properties keep your drink looking cool and elegant. What’s more, at under $25, this is a great budget-friendly buy.
