15 Perfect Books to Gift This Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day is almost here and finding that just-right gift can be difficult, but if your mom is an avid reader, we can help get rid of the guesswork to find your mom — or the moms in your life — the perfect book. Whether it’s an old-school hardcover or an e-book on Kindle, we have the perfect list of gripping reads to pick from for your favorite bookworm.

Reader-moms will appreciate getting a book that shows you did your research — and selected the book that’s just the right match for her literary tastes. You know what kind of reads she’ll enjoy and what genres she prefers — but you might also consider going rogue and gifting her a book that’s outside of her comfort zone, but that you think she’ll love anyways.

For fiction, if your mom is a big Jane Austen fan or zoomed through the first season of Bridgerton on Netflix, we recommend checking out the original book
by Julia Quinn. On the nonfiction side of female empowerment, we tore through Glennon Doyle’s recent memoir, Untamed. It’s raw and brutally honest, but it reminds us to live to up our fullest potential by setting up boundaries — although yes, we know that boundaries are sometimes hard to keep.

If you can’t decide which book to get, maybe a stack of books is the way to go this Mother’s Day? You can never have too many books, after all. One or all, these books are the perfect gift this holiday.

You can even get one of these books for yourself to have a mini-book club with a mom in your life this year. Quality reads plus quality time together? There’s no better gift than that!
