It’s never too early to start thinking about Mother’s Day. Instead of scrolling through online reviews before making a Mother’s Day gift purchase, you can go straight to another source that people love for shopping inspiration: Hollywood moms. And with Mother’s Day approaching on May 8, it’s a great time to start the hunt for the best gifts for mom and other maternal figures in your life. To save you lots of browsing, we’ve rounded up some of the best Mother’s Day gifts, including some that have earned accolades from A-listers.

3. Diptyque Choisya Candle
When it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, a gorgeous candle is a classic option. Diptyque is famous for its elegant French-made candles. Kate Hudson has said that her favorite Diptyque offering is Choisya, which smells of orange blossoms. Mom will love the idea of the warm, fresh scent filling her home.
4. Instant Pot Pro Plus Multicooker
Instant Pot’s newest Pro Plus Wi-Fi pressure cooker might just be the closest thing to gifting mom her very own robot chef. Sync the multi-tasking appliance to the brand’s app for access to over 1,000 pre-programmed recipes, or use your mobile device to schedule, adjust and monitor your food when you’re out of the house or in another room. (It also works without the app.)
Design updates include a large, easy-to-read LCD screen, NutriBoost technology that helps to release more flavor, a quieter steam release switch and an upgraded stainless steel inner pot featuring thicker metal and an easier-to-grasp handle.
5. Apple Watch Series 7
Mom can keep track of her workouts, emails, sleep, heart rate and more with the Apple Watch Series 7.

A pair of fresh kicks — especially comfortable ones — that are royal approved is a great gift for mom. The Italian sneaker brand debuted in 1925 and it has been looking fresh and cool ever since.

The cotton canvas upper and a thick gum sole will give mom happy feet.
29. Slip Beauty Sleep To Go! Eye Mask and Pillowcase Set
Give mom the gift of beauty rest with Silk’s Beauty Sleep To Go! set. Not only does it feel luxurious, but it will protect her hair while she snoozes by preventing damage from friction. That means no more bedhead. Silk, as opposed to cotton, is also better for her skin, since it absorbs less moisture. (Katy Perry, Drew Barrymore and Kris Jenner have used Slip’s products.)

32. La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer
Mother’s Day is the perfect time to splurge on the person who has done so much for you. We’re sure Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson would agree, as the Hollywood mom and daughter have lent their faces to La Mer’s Generational Beauty campaign last year. The deluxe Crème de la Mer moisturizer has a cult following for its multitasking magic. In addition to delivering deep hydration, it calms irritation and redness, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles along the way.
