It’s about that time: time to get those bouquets and chocolates ready. But if you’re shopping for a mom this Valentine’s Day, it’s not just about little treats that can set the mood and show that gal some love; it’s also about surprising her with a special present that speaks to who she is. And there are tons of meaningful mom gift options for Valentine’s Day — from jewelry to clothing to CBD-infused lube (What? It’s V-Day after all) to self-care gifts that will lower her stress and amp up her happiness.
Below, for your inspiration, are our favorite ways to say, “I love you, lady” this Feb. 14. Plus, all of them are pretty well priced — so feel free to splurge on those chocolate-covered strawberries and Champagne too.
For the #PlantMom
For the mom who loves nature and filling her space with plants, these four adorable mini-succulents will be just the trick. They come in playful patterned ceramic planters that will complement the colors in any home or office space. Keep them by a good source of natural light — they should get about six hours a day — and water when the soil is dry.

For the crunchy mom
Available online through the 14th, this limited-edition rose-and-jasmine-scented deodorant will make mom’s V-Day (and every day) smell like a damn garden. Plus, these deodorants use safe and natural ingredients (no aluminum). What’s not to love?

For the oenophile mom
(That’s “wine lover” to most of us.) Plenty of the moms we know enjoy a glass or two of wine at the end of a hectic day of work/parenting/scrubbing crayon art off the walls. Surprise her this Valentine’s Day with organic, biodynamic and tasty wines in a Vinebox package. That way, she can look forward to tasting new grapes from across Europe throughout the entire year.
For the gamer mom
Get Mom access to Fitness Boxing from Nintendo Switch, where she can get moving to different boxing routines, all streamed with upbeat music and carefully crafted workouts. Workouts can range from 10 to 40 minutes. She’ll get strong and have tons of fun doing it.
