Not sure what Mother’s Day gift to get your mom (or any other moms in your life whom you love) that’ll fully communicate your appreciation? A foolproof strategy is none other than aligning your Mother’s Day gift in accordance with her zodiac sign.
Astrology tells us a lot about who we are as people and can inform our likes and dislikes—which is largely why looking to the stars for gifting guidance is such a good plan. Keep reading to learn what astrologer Stephanie N. Campos suggests to be the best Mother’s Day gift for every zodiac sign this year.
The best Mother’s Day gifts, based on zodiac sign, according to an astrologer
“Aries moms want memories that will last forever,” says Campos. “And let’s not lie: We know they love to be the center of attention.” For that reason, she suggests gifting the Aries mom in your life a Polaroid instant camera. After all, it’s “a gift that keeps on giving, so they can take selfies and document the lives and memories with those they love most,” Campos adds.
This Polaroid gift set comes complete with the camera itself (which you can get in white, black, or blue-gray), a large photo album in which to store your Polaroids, and, of course, film.
Being that sensuous Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, “Taurus moms and a lush, luxurious robe go hand-in-hand,” Campos says. “[It] will be a welcome reminder that she is deserving of indulging in self-care.”
In addition to this robe being green, effectively making it an ode to Taurus’s Earth element, bulls will also enjoy that it’s made from mulberry silk—which is a luxe and eco-friendly fabric. It’s on the shorter side in terms of length, which is perfect for the warmth of the coming months.
Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and thought processes, Campos suggests getting your mom a Mother’s Day gift that “will keep her mind moving,” like a jigsaw puzzle. And an added bonus of gifting a puzzle is that it might just help her relax and unwind.
This Piecework puzzle comes with 70 pieces, which means your mom won’t have to worry about poring over it for endless hours in order to complete it. Its mini size also means that it’ll be easier to store (or frame!) once it’s been pieced together. You can also feel great about gifting this specific puzzle, with pieces are made of 100 percent recycled paper.
Cancers are often regarded as the homebodies of the zodiac, so it would be wise to gift your mom something that she can use in her space. “There’s nothing like new cooking [gear] to send a Cancer mom straight to heaven,” says Campos.
The Instant Pot is a kitchen classic because it gives you seven different functions all in one convenient setting. Gifting this to your mom allows her to pressure cook, slow cook, steam, sauté, or warm just about anything her heart desires. By getting your Cancer mom an Instant Pot, you’re giving her something she’d actually use and a gift that’s time-saving.
“Leos love gift-giving and want to make sure you know how grateful they are for the gifts they receive,” says Campos. “If you get them something they can use and incorporate in their daily lives for some summer celebrating, they’d be over the moon and back.”
The cool thing about this set of stemware is that each glass is a different color, so no one has to worry about mixing up wine glasses. It comes with six hand-blown glasses, all in gorgeous, bright hues.
Though they’re widely known as a detail-oriented sign, Virgos also enjoy the finer things in life, says Campos. “Get them a bracelet with their children’s initials. High quality goes a long way with Virgos.”
Virgos love a fashion moment, but keep in mind that this delicate treasure will take about a week to ship. So, you might want to order sooner than later.
Since Venus-ruled Libra loves a solid aesthetic, consider getting your Libra mom a gift that’s luxurious. “Is there anything more decadent than a new pajama set? Splurge on a soft and cozy PJ set that your mom will have no choice but to feel like royalty in,” says Campos.
This pajama set is the perfect Mother’s Day gift because, as its name states, it’s cozy. Plus, there are five color options to choose from, and it’s size inclusive, with options ranging from extra small to XXXL. Not sold? Consider reviews of more than 2,000 people giving it five out of five stars.
According to Campos, Scorpio moms love to set the mood—and one of the best ways to do that is with a large candle. “Whether she’s feeling moody or ready to shift the vibe in her house for any reason, a chic, oversized metal candle adds the perfect accent to any room,” she says.
This 10-wick candle is a great gift for your mom because it’s scented with oud (a luxurious and wood-like smell), amber (akin to leather and pine), and lavender (which is connected to de-stressing properties).
If there’s one unwavering truth about freedom-loving Sagittarius, it’s their love for being on the go. For that reason, Campos suggests getting your Sagittarius mom a new pair of sunglasses “that will protect her from the sun on all of her wildest adventures,” she says.
These glasses come in three color options and offer 100 percent UV protection, which hits on Campos’s point of helping protect your mom from the sun.
Ever-ambitious Capricorn likes to get. things. done. “We know your Capricorn mom has a to-do list like no other,” says Campos. “Get her the latest and greatest home espresso machine, so she always has fuel in her tank.”
The Breville Bambino Plus is available in nine colors, so you can pick whatever matches your mom’s vibe. It comes with a stainless-steel frothing jug, a trimming tool, and a cleaning tool, among other top-of-the-line features.
Aquarius appreciates a self-care moment, so Campos suggests gifting your Aquarius mom “an air diffuser, complete with every essential oil under the sun,” she says. “As an air sign, tapping into this airy energy and absorbing different properties via essential oil will be right up their alley.”
The Alo Aura Diffuser is specifically made to use with essential oils or water, which means it’s a diffuser and a humidifier. It’s also highly efficient, since it has a 22-hour mist period and can cover up to 700 square feet.
“Grab your Pisces mom a unique pair of earrings,” says Campos. “Try out a new designer and don’t be afraid to push beyond your comfort zone. Pisces’ eyes can understand and appreciate all types of art.” Pisces is the zodiac’s dreamer, after all.
Because Pisces is a water sign and aquamarine is one of its birthstones, you can’t go wrong with gifting your mom a pair of these earrings. They’re about one inch in length and are plated in 18k gold.
