  • Nordstrom is one of our favorite places to shop quality brands all year long, so it's no surprise we specifically do our Mother's Day shopping there as well.
  • These 31 thoughtful gifts span across clothing, shoes, jewelry, tech, beauty, and home departments, so you'll be able to find something that fits her needs and interests.

If you asked us why we love shopping at Nordstrom, we wouldn't even know where to begin.

Maybe it's the curated selection of top brands across clothing, home, and beauty, or the unique, limited-time collaborations with celebrities, influencers, and top designers. Perhaps we really enjoy the great customer service, on top of perks like free shipping all year round, in-store tailoring, and its free rewards program.

For all these reasons, we go to Nordstrom first when it's time to shop for Mother's Day gifts. It only carries the best brands, so it's hard to mess up while shopping here, but if we had to narrow down the selection to only a few dozen, these are the gifts we would choose.
