Top Mother’s Day gifts from Nordstrom
Any mom will feel like a cozy queen in these pajamas! The Nordstrom Moonlight pjs have been my favorite for a long time, but if you’re looking for something on the more luxe/boujee side, these are a huge treat. Skims pjs are NEXT LEVEL ultra comfy and definitely higher end quality that will last. These elevated pjs are also super nice for nursing with a button down that makes life a little easier!
These are some of my favorite joggers of ALL TIME by Vuori (you can see my other favorites here!). I’m seriously obsessed with these and wear them constantly. They’re definitely an everyday pant to wear lounging around, working out, or chasing the kids around all day but still nice enough where you look put together. These are SO comfy and feel like you never changed out of pjs!
These super highly-rated sneakers are so ideal as a mom because if your hands are full you can slip them on and off with no hassle! They’re extremely comfy; my mom and sister both wore them all over Europe two summers in a row. And if you're buying for a mom like me, they’re perfect for trying to take morning walks or hit your steps on the treadmill.
Almost a 5-star rating on these hair ties that are the PERFECT ‘add on’ to any Mother’s Day gift! Having a small extra gift shows her you thought about her a little bit extra and these are the perfect affordable and useful gift to add.
Maxi-Cosi has amazing products for your baby, but this swing is one of the prettiest ones we’ve owned! I love using this for my newborn Bobby while I’m making breakfast or need to put him down somewhere safe. Not only does this swing look like a piece of home decor, but it’s stable and easy to adjust while giving your little one a 360º rotation! Note: this Maxi-Cosi swing keeps going in and out of stock, but this Nuna seat is another beautiful option that your baby would love!
Our Place Mini Always Pan Set
We’re already in love with our Always Pan, but the mini version is the best gift for a mom who wants less dishes to clean (all of us)! I love using the mini Always Pan to make eggs for the kids pretty much daily – it’s the perfect size for a quick breakfast in the morning.
Nécessaire Body Wash
I wasn’t sure if this Nécessaire Body Wash would be just a ‘nice smelling body wash but a grocery store product would do’ kind of moment, but it wasn’t! This body wash smells amazing and while I’m breastfeeding it’s exactly what I need right now! All body odor is a little stronger while breastfeeding (if you know, you know), but with this wash I feel like it works better than ANY other to get rid of weird smells and feel the cleanest. It’s 100% worth it!
Dyson Corrale Straightener Set
HOT DEAL on this amazing Dyson Corrale straightener that you don’t want to miss! Valued at $559, you can get the Dyson Corrale straightener in a super pretty and limited-edition blue color, the charging dock, a heat-resistant pouch, and a storage case for just $499! If I’m in a hurry, this is hand down my go to product – it’s the quickest way to style my hair without the damage. Dyson has definitely preserved my hair’s health while still using heat.
Apple Watch Watchband
This Apple Watch watchband is a total treat that I found at Nordstrom. I always wanted a Michele watch, but didn’t make the splurge – plus I knew I couldn’t pull myself away from the practicality and usefulness of my Apple Watch. This watchband married both of these loves and it’s not terribly expensive. I love how it gives me the feeling of a Michele watch with all the practicality of my Apple. Such a great gift idea!
MZ Wallace Medium Tote
Hands down this MZ Wallace tote is my MOST used bag as a mom! I love my MZ Wallace bags; they're extremely durable, you can wipe them out easily, squish them down to nothing for travel, and so much more. These bags are extremely versatile and weigh close to nothing because not adding extra weight when you’re holding a baby matters! They come in lots of sizes, but the medium has been great for me lately because I already have a diaper bag that I pack full of my kid’s stuff, so the medium is good for me and my things.
Modal Baby Wrap
I love to use my Solly baby wrap while I’m making dinner – it has been a game changer when I'm in the baby phase. I’m convinced every mom with a baby who has been cranky during witching hour needs this – you already know that dinner to bedtime (aka when you're needed the most for dinner and homework and all the family things) is also simultaneously the worst time of day for babies. This hands-free wrap lets me take care of my family and give Bobby comfort at the same time.
Our Place Perfect Pot
It’s been raining here a lot lately and soup has been a favorite. I love using the Perfect Pot for soup or pasta dishes because it has the easiest drain and you’re dirtying less dishes because Our Place maximizes the functionality out of each product. This can go in the oven too, and I get tons of use out of it! From less cleaning time to cooking dinner to perfection, this pot is so worth it!
Le Creuset French/Dutch Oven
I’ve been on a sourdough kick and to pull it off you need a really heavy dutch-like oven. The Le Creuset I’ve had for years was from Neil on Valentine’s Day one year. I love my little one from Neil and I still use it a TON, so if you’re looking for a gift that she’ll literally be able to pass down to her children, this is it! This is really a great Mother's Day gift for my mom who loves sourdough or for someone you know wanting to get started on it!
Weighted Wearable Baby Blanket
Every mom needs more uninterrupted sleep time and this Dreamland Baby sleep sack is a DREAM. This has been so great to help get my newborn Bobby to sleep lately as he’s transitioning from a swaddle. This is such a great product that’s safe yet effective at helping our little ones get the best sleep (and us!).
Electric Pour Over Kettle
When I’m going to bed I like to use the Stagg electric kettle to make my sleepy drink. When I was pregnant, this was a mixture with magnesium so I didn’t have restless leg and now it’s something with Ashwagandha that’s helping with postpartum, plus a tiny bit of melatonin! This kettle is perfect for hot drinks plus it comes in the best colors making it such a fun decor piece.
Doona Car Seat/Compact Stroller
This Doona Car Seat/Compact stroller has for sure been my favorite mom gear item as a 5th time mom I can only ask myself why we didn’t get this sooner!? This compact stroller turned car seat is so useful, you can easily pop the baby in and out without having to worry about a clunky stroller and then carrying a heavy car seat.
This might seem like a gift for baby, BUT it’s totally a gift for mom when the baby is completely content and BIBS is the only type of pacifier that my boys liked. I’ve tried every type of pacifier with all my babies and the only two that have caught on and loved it for a long period of time have been the boys because of BIBS. This 2-pack is super affordable and might be that little lifesaver mom is looking for!
I found these Quay sunnies recently and I think they’re SUPER cute, but they’re selling out like crazy! There are tons of high ratings and I love them in white, I think it’s such a fun spring color and shape. These will go with a ton of looks for spring and summer and would make such a cute Mother's Day gift!
Zip Up Footie
A soft and comfy playtime or nap-time footie for your little one isn’t always easy to come by! This one by Kyte Baby is SO perfect and has breathable, temperature-regulating fabric. If your little one has sensitive skin, this footie will help not irritate them but bring all the comfort!
Straight Leg Jeans
These jeans by Good American are SO great if you have anything in the mid area that you want to feel a little more comfortable in – like me after my c section. These jeans are the perfect pair for feeling like your best self and they’re not insanely expensive but still designer quality and feel.
Air Force 1 Shadow Sneaker
I’ve wanted these sneakers for a SUPER long time. I think the Air Force 1 sneakers are so comfy but still give a level of being dressed up – like an elevated fun. These Shadow sneakers come in a lot of really cute and fun prints/colors (note: sizes are going fast!) that still give all the comfort and support of quality walking shoes. These are perfect for a fun pop in a neutral look!
I attribute my ability to drink around 100oz of water a day during my pregnancy with Bobby to my Stanley cups! There's something about carrying around 40oz of water with a big straw that makes drinking water SO much easier for me.
IT Cosmetics CC Cream
This IT Cosmetics CC Cream is a lifesaver for me as a mom. I love that it covers my SPF needs and has so many products in one quick swoop!
Blue Light Glasses
Lately I've been really trying to wear my blue light glasses while I work because when I don't, I notice that my eyes are burning at the end of the day! These help a ton and would make a great Mother's Day gift!
Why Nordstrom is the go-to place to shop for your Mother's Day gifts
Before you go, there are two things I seriously LOVE about Nordstrom that'll make these “best Mother's Day gifts” even better:
1) They have an amazing return policy. If you're worried the item might not fit, or someone else might've already gotten it for them, Nordstrom has free returns and awesome customer service.
2) A super convenient shopping hack is to purchase online and pick up in store because sooo many of these items are selling out fast. You’re going to want to grab them online when you see it and pick it up in-store for ultra convenience: no hassle AND no waiting for shipping. Win, win!
Buy in-store, online, or schedule curbside pickup
ALSO, I wanted to let you know that you can buy these Mother's Day gifts online with free shipping and returns, OR you can schedule a curbside pickup so you never even have to go into a store! Be sure to sign up for Nordy Rewards as well so you can earn money towards future purchases.

I'm so happy to be getting this Nordstrom Mother's Day gift guide out because it seriously lists some of my favorite Nordstrom items ever. I hope this helps you find the perfect gifts for the mama(s) you’re buying for this Mother’s Day!
In the end, the thought is really what counts, but it always feels good to know your gift is something that the mom in your life can use for a loooong time after she opens it. Nordstrom always guarantees that type of quality, which is why all of these gifts are highly recommended – and highly recommended for treating yourself, too!
